We're looking at apartments again... gawwwwdddd... turns out our lovely apartment is suffering from years of neglect resulting in ceilings that pour when it rains, mold, crumbling floorboards... it's so sad to see a beautiful historic building die like this, but the owners of the property supposedly "don't have the money" to fix it. Rriiighht. We are trying to stay in the same neighborhood. One of my favorite features is this book store with this lovely garden out front:
You won't get books here cheap, but people in the neighborhood have a lot of pride in their little shop so I find myself buying books here quite often.
I looked at an apartment today whose front porch was completely caved in (definitely not an "amenity" listed on their Craigslist ad). What the hell is going on??? Take care of your stuff! The other one was nice enough but, but I walked through while the couple living there was around, so I didn't get much of a chance to explore, and I was off-put by the landlord's "So... yawannagetit? Wannagetit? Wannagetit?" attitude.
On the upside, I've been invited to participate in an art project around town... I have 4 days to produce 10 pieces. Gulp. It can be anything, as long as it fits inside a cigarette box (as in, a pack of cigarettes). But first, I need your help! I'm going to be posting a series of questions to my followers on Twitter. I will incorporate your answers into my art project! In the meantime, what would you make and put in my cigarette box???
Thanks for your help!
