BTW: James and I moved into a 2-bedroom apartment in North Slope, Brooklyn. It's a rad neighborhood. So, the only thing nasty about it are the one or two roaches a week (which I will make short work of), and the loud neighbor above us. (More on that later.) James pays only 35$ more a month than he did for the rotten studio, and I pay 2/3 less that I did at the loft. Free heat and hot water, the strip a block away, a HUGE Keyfoods a little ways off.

Your New Place
So Lisa......not knowing the geography of the NYC area too well......Are you now closer to work? I sure hope so......It sounds like you are going to be much happier there.

Hey, Lisa, congratulations on the new place. So glad you didn't have to live in the war zone.

one or 2 roaches a week? i thought that was like immaculate for nyc. hell, we have about that many here and i live in a house in florida.

Yay! Glad to hear that things are going well. Hmm, the guy upstairs. You need to buy him pillows for his feet!

Yeah that or get him some ninja-like stealth training... that way when he walks around he'll do so silently and not bother you anymore. Hehe Though the music can be a bother. I still find myself looking up or down whenever I hear a loud noise thinking it is the room below me or above me because I'm so accustomed to living in hotels. What's really bad is when you hear screaming and thrashing around and you think someone is being killed so you call the cops and it turns out that the people in the room next to you were just shagging like bunnies... [blush]

ack! i wont call the cops. the guy looks like a frat boy. he runs up the stairs in skip-every-other-one fashion. he's the guy on the go. stomping quickly back and forth, turnin up the music, up and down the stair to grab a pizza. im sure he'll be some sort of jet set business guy after he gets done with his bar gig (i assume this is why he gets home at 4:30am every night). I swear to god, he moves furniture around his place every night. he picks up his guitar and stums the same riff over and over "BAAABBYY", he croons... I can hear the guitar crash down when he's done. stomp stomp, like he's in loud women's dress shoes. ugha.
anyway, i have a couple of errands to do before i return home to ifrit and my roach genocide vendetta.
i miss my jimmy.

moving furniture
People above me seem to do the same from time to time in the middle of the night... what do they move anyway? they got some sort of closet in front of the bed or something? Can't get to bed without moving the kitchen table away from it? ;-) And who even wants to move heavy stuff at night... I'd rather sleep!

hi lisa!

i started using this product called 'combat'. it comes in little two-inch square black plastic containers. you put the containers around the house (particularly, the kitchen and bathroom, of course). there's no insecticide to spray and poison yourself. the roaches walk inside the containers, pick up some "food" and take it back to the nest. you only have to change the containers every 3, 6, or 12 months (depending on which ones you buy). they seem to be working for me. anyway, i'm guessing you should be able to find it in your grocery store, which is where i got it.

Re: roaches
hey mjm!
i thought about that, but I was worried that the cat would get into it. so, i have the spray and the "non-toxic" roach motels. the roach motels are making my apt smell like...well, it's not bad, but it's not good.

If there are no roaches checked in by Friday, im gonna toss em.

Re: roaches

i would read the label, of course, but they look pretty pet safe. they are black plastic with very small entrances. i guess they are a variation on the roach motel, except they roaches aren't expected to die inside them. my guess is that you'll need something pretty much all the time. also, keeping everything clean and dry, putting away all food, helps. they'll leave if there is no food or water, but you're trapped by your neighbors habits.

I hate roaches... and all bugs that come into my house for that matter... I have this lot next door... owned by someone other than my landlord, its been over grown all year, until last month the city came in and mowed it (tore the grass from the ground is more like it) so now, all the insects that called that lot home, have moved into the other houses on the block... we are fighting them, but its still annoying as all hell... I wanted to sue the city to get the houses fumigated, but it has to be done by my landlord, and he doesn't want to get envolved... the panzy...

anyway... hope all things are well..

I live in Florida. Roach Capital of the World! Make sure you put those traps under all the sinks, etc.

you actually have real roaches there (As we did in NO. The roaches here are at max 3/4 inch long, with antennea. Any bigger (the normal 2-3 inch size) are called "waterbugs". so, when i see "roaches" around here, its not such the huge deal..but i still dont want them.
