  1. Well one thing has changed….white tulips. #27 Yes he was! Got to go and pack now…for Tofino!!!

  2. “hearing a little bit of bass through the wall from my neighbour (I tattle on him all the time)”

    I get how you feel there. My neighbour has surround sound and likes watching movies, loudly, at 11pm at night. It vibrates my wall. He also slams his door every time he enters or exits his place, which shakes my wall. I’ve called security almost a dozen times since I moved in this time last year. I’ve also gone and talked to management. They’ve given him two formal letters to behave or leave. He’s been pretty good lately, now that I think about it.

    But it’s my goal to get him kicked out =)

  3. Haha nice – all the power to you! People that live in apartment buildings need to realize that they share their space with others. Therefore, we all need to be respectful of each other.

  4. #44 needs a repeat soon. Rain or shine. I’m going to copy your questionnaire and put them in my bloggy for work down-times. Shhh.
