my faulty apartment and my amazing girlfriend



Well, a few days ago I came home from doing some work and found that my electricity had gone out... I assumed that it was out most of the day because all of my food in the freezer and fridge were warm and spoiling... anyway, I called the land-lord and he said he’d have someone out first thing the next morning... as it turned out, the breaker had only fell, but it was in the lower level of the house where I do not have a key to... but I do now in case it happens again...
Yesterday as I was leaving to go to the studio, I shut the door behind me, and because it sticks quite fiercely at the bottom, I have to pull very hard to get the door to shut properly. As I did this, the door handle fell right out of the door! So, I called the land-lord again and he said he’d have someone out that day, but noone ever came... that evening I went to shut my door (I usually keep it open during the day because it’s so hot) and for some reason some of the gears must have fallen out because when I turned the handle to try and re-open it, the bolt wouldn’t turn... so I had locked myself in my apartment!! I once again called my land-lord and he said someone would be out in the morning... now I’m watcing two guys fix my door...
Also, yesterday Virginia surprised me with a special Valentines Day letter along with some pictures and flowers... I got home yesterday and they were just sitting there waiting for me on my counter... I was really confused as to how she pulled it off. In fact, I had to look around my apartment and make sure she wasn’t hiding somewhere... She had actually set it all up with Sara Hile to sneak over here and do it... She is a tricky one... and a sweetie... I miss her a ton... (:

Eric,
I miss you brother. Hurry and come home, it's not the same watching the Pistons with Jamie...all she does it keep asking questions about why they don't add a four point line and why do they keep slapping eachother's butts, etc. She just doesn't get it...

Eric,
That girl looks crazy about you. Keep her!

Glad you're having a great experience - hope the rat thing was a fluke and not just 'the one who got locked out of your apartment'. What if there are more inside? Don't worry - I'm sure they're not as gross when they're alive..and maybe the geckos eat not only bugs, but rats as well.

ERic,

Dude, you are funny bro! It looks like Virg gave you a good valentines day bud! Praying for you and miss hanging with you.
