i’ve been at home for 2 days with a migraine. yes, bedridden for 2 days. i’m just now starting to feel human again. however, my downstairs neighbor obviously doesn’t know this, because he is using the loudest, most obnoxious vacuum cleaner known to man. it has a high-pitched whine that just drives me bat-shit crazy. i’ve resorted to ear plugs. i thought he was done when the noise stopped for about 5 minutes. oh, no. clearly he was only taking a cigarette break. people like him make the baby jesus cry.
(this is the same neighbor that uses a litre of lighter fluid on his BBQ briquettes, because heaven forbid he not be able to light his BBQ. instead, he’s trying to kill me with carcinogens – because that lovely smell drifts straight up and into my house. did i mention he BBQs almost every day? lovely.)
