Justine, is a little bit more than you'd expect. This is where you are supposed to put your "elevator speech". What you'd say if you were in the elevator with somebody you wanted to connect with. I don't have an "elevator speech". If I ran smack-dab into one of my "heroes" I'd just have to smile and be polite and keep my yipper shut and that's probably for the best anyway!

I think we're all crazy!!!
Apartment shopping yesterday. Life at the old Tuxedo Inn has been hell this summer. Need a place with a washer, dryer, diswasher, heat, air, and a reliable water supply. Oh and no steps please....friggin' "Everest" out there is getting old.

Tried the new apartment complex in town......The resident center isn't finished yet. The pool is under construction. The parking lot is full of heavy equipment and they're making enough noise to drown out the airport.

"So, a one bedroom with den is reasonably priced from $1738 plus utilities." The salesman says. "We require a one year lease." He continues.

I burst out laughing, out loud, in his face. Bad girl babe was out in force.

"Ha ha ha, ho ho ho. I'm not paying 1700 bucks a month for a dinky apartment in an unfinished complex." I laughed.

The sales office went deadly silent. I had brought everything to a standstill, like the kid who had just pointed out that the emperor was naked.

"I only need an apartment for 6 months until I get into the house. I don't need to make a house payment for an apartment. Thank you for your time." I shook the salesman's hand.

"Well we just changed out prices and rental terms." He sputtered.

"Well then you need to get whoever answers your phone to stop lying on you then, don't you?" I couldn't stop laughing. "They told me 1280$ a month with a 9 month lease."

Oh that place was mad as a Mercury factory.

"Besides this complex is listed as a Marriot extended stay hotel on the web. Who wants to pay that much per month to have a slew of out of town execs behaving badly for neighbors?"

I laughed my way out to the car. The sales office emptied out after me.

Somebody thinks Annapolis Maryland is a whole lot more than the pile of congested rickety old houses and slums that it is!

Gnarl's Barkly seems to have this place to a T in their song "Crazy"


Crazy (from Gnarl's Barkly)

I remember when
I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place
Even your emotions had an echo
And so much space
Hmm mmmm
And when you're out there
Without care
Yeah I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much
Mmm

Does that make me crazy (x3)
Probably

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice
Thats my only advice
Hmm
Come on now
Who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are
Ha ha ha!
Bless your soul
You really think you're in control
Well

I think you're crazy (x3)
Just like me

My heros had the heart, to put their lives out on the limb
And all I remember, is thinking I want to be like them
Hmm mmm
Ever since I was little
Ever since I was little it looked like fun
And its no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

But maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably
