My horribly loud neighbors who live in the back apartment got a drum set. Because they weren't loud enough already. I had to go over at 11pm and have the following exchange with them:
Boy: *opens doors, smiles* Hey what's going on?
Girl: *comes up behind him holding drum sticks, smiles* Hey girl.
Boy: *looks pleasant but vacantly expectant*
Girl: *look of understanding slowly crosses her face* Oh, were we too loud?
Me: Yeah, the drums are going to have to be a day time thing. It's not just the noise, but it's vibrating the floors all the way through the house.
Me: No trouble, thanks for keeping it down.
SERIOUSLY? Is there any, ANY, circumstance when I should have to tell someone who lives in an apartment that playing the drums at 11pm, particularly on a week night is unacceptable?
So they finally shut up and I go into my room only to discover that my beloved neighbor J has gone out and left her stereo on very loudly. Or maybe not even that loudly, but her stereo is right on the other side of my bedroom wall and I can hear it clearly enough to distinguish the lyrics in every song. Fortunately that can be cured with earplugs in a way drums vibrating the floor cannot.
Earplugs in I then proceeded to stay up WAY too late reading. So I can't even really blame anyone else for my exhaustion and crankiness today. Boo.
I have a headache. The wind is interfering with an otherwise perfectly lovely spring day. And it's irritating me by being loud and rattly around the office. I have a shit-ton of work and I can't concentrate at all.
I didn't get hardly anything done this weekend, though I'm not complaining or beating myself up, as I generally rested and watched movies and screwed off in a way I haven't done in forever. However, after all that I feel like I should be in a decent mood, if not an excellent one, this morning. Instead I feel like I climbing back into bed and crying. It's not even PMS or anything. I just really really really do not want to be at work right now.
Hmmm, reading through my past few posts I'm seeing a trend. If this keeps up I'll be in a perfectly cheerful mood tomorrow for no reason at all and then go right back to cranky again.

Wow!Saturday night we settled in to watch some SNL when the neighbours started a hippi jam complete with bongos and something that was actually making the walls shake. How much freaking bass do you need in a 800sq ft apartment?And on top of that the people upstairs have been putting in flooring for the last 2 months! And when they aren't doing that – they are dropping heavy things from high shelves or walking around in lead shoes…at all hours.We have yet to say anything because I haven't busted out the electric guitar and Peavy yet. I haven't played in about 3 years – so I am going to sound extra good when I finally get that space set up!
