Tonight, I returned home from a twelve-hour day at school to find myself locked out of the bottom floor of my apartment. There were workers at the house all day upgrading the electricity system, and, when they left, they shut the wrong door, jostling the deadbolt lock. This has happened before in the five years I've lived in the house, but in the past I was always able to climb in through one of the rickety windows. I couldn't this time, as the windows are brand spanking new.
I called the landlord, and she didn't pick up. After trying everything I could think of, I sulked. I couldn't get to my kitchen or my bathroom, and really wanted both dinner and a shower after my long day.
This is what's great about living with two lesbians, though. Now, I'm not really living with them, as they're rarely here and aren't paying rent, but their dog and cats are here and they shower here. So they come home from their almost-totally-inhabitable house, where they've been scraping paint all afternoon. They tell me that Macgyver was written by lesbians, and go to town on my door. Using a butter knife, a couple coat hangers, and a potato peeler, the three of us took off the ancient door, which was bonded to the hinge by layers and layers of lead paint. I say the three of us, but one of my main jobs was holding the flash light.
Lately, my home life has been seeming like a sitcom. I'm the John Ritter of the Three's Company of our house.
Tomorrow is the first day of the second semester, which is one reason I was at school pretty late tonight. I'm going to have an awesome semester.
Tomorrow is also my pre-season baseball meeting. I'm pumped about that, as well.
Did anyone else catch that Love Monkey show last night? This might be the show that returns me to TV. It could be because I caught the premiere, which is rare for me. But I liked it, a lot.
I'm watching a lot more TV now that it's next to my computer. I watched almost two hours last night and, tonight, an hour.
Anyone know where a convenient, cheap place can get CPR certified in Baltimore?
