Jimmy left for Vegas early yesterday morning. It was strange and rather uncomfortable waking up at 9am, all alone in the new place. Ifrit even looked around for James, but came up with a rattle ball instead. I went grocery shopping, walked around the Atlantic Ave Antique district, bought some crickets. I thought about renting a movie, but decided to finish up Henry Miller's "Crazy Cock" instead. Played a little "Digger" on the server, watched Dune for the um-teenth time. I could have tried to call someone, I guess, but I didn't feel like hanging out. I was absorbed in being alone. Strange: life without an internet connection. We plan to get cable, but I need a little more money first,and Jimmy needs a job before I feel good about adding monthly payments into the budget. I'm thinking of walking up to the Fulton Mall tonight to put in some applications for holiday employment. I would like not to have to leave Brooklyn at all on the weekends.

The man who lives upstairs from us is really loud. He likes to open his door and turn up his music, and pound loudly to the beat on the floor (our ceiling). He was quiet after 11:30pm last night though, so I I could get some sleep. I don't care much during the day, but I hate it when people are so inconsiderate afterhours. He's heavy footed. It sounds like the ceiling is going to fall in when he walks around. I smacked a roach on the wall last night with "Crime and Punishment". I'm going out over lunch to buy some spray to line the outside of the doors and windows.

There are few stores on Montague St that might be worth looking at for holiday help has well, walden books for one. Its only a couple blocks from the fulton mall.

re: bugs
A friend of mine lived in an old apartment that had the usual cockroaches and critters. He had a great "non-toxic" way to deal with them. He bought a bunch of little gecko lizards and let them loose in his place. They ate the bugs and since they didn't like too much attention they pretty much stayed out of his way, almost like they were never there.

Re: bugs
yeah.....but most cats would make short order of the lizards. Perhaps Lisa's cat could have some gecko for Thanksgiving?????

Re: bugs
this reminds me of that Simpsons Episode, where Bart kills the mommy bird and takes care of the eggs, only to hatch pidgeon eating lizards. then they bring in the snakes to eat the lizards..and something to eat the snakes and the gorillas to eat the whatever, and then the gorillas will die in the winter...something like that! :)
