So I go in there and look at it and I notice it's got potholders and stuff on top of it (which I told him over and over again not to put stuff on top of it because it needs to vent and he kept doing it). Then I noticed the ****ing thing was literally hot to the touch. Like 150 degrees hot. So I asked him why it was hot and he said it had been running. I looked inside and there was nothing in there. I asked him how long it ran with nothing in it and he said about 20 minutes. I asked him how that happened and he said he set the timer. So obviously, he thought he set the timer but actually set the microwave to run for 20 minutes and just let it sit there and burn itself out.

Unbelievable

I wonder why it died?
Well, now that it's cooled down a bit, I plugged it in and the light and controls panel came on. So that's kind of a good sign. Gonna let it cool off some more before I try using it. But I'm kinda scared to. Even though what happened was probably a thermal circuit breaker or something. But hell. Even the GFI in the outlet it was plugged into was tripped. That's the level of "Help me! I'm overheating!" the entire circuit had to take.

Seems to still work. Just heated water. I just don't know if I trust it now.

This jobless drunk shut-in in the apartment above me, I don't know what is going on with him. I think he's going insane or is just so drunk that it's affecting his perceptions and causing hallucinations. His sister has stayed with him on and off over the past few years, and currently it's "off"; her car has been gone for several days. With her gone, he just sits and slurs to the empty air and on occasion sings, probably drunk as a skunk.

What concerns me is that he frequently pounds on the ground and yells "Knock it off!" or "Shut the fvck up!" Over the past few days he's done this even when I don't even have my TV on and am sitting reading. I have my set probably as loud as his, and I don't really hear his. Of course I watch movies that can get louder, but in the past he's never really pounded much over that. I'm not sure if he's hearing something in his head and thinks it's me or if someone next to or above him is making a racket. It wouldn't be the first time for the former. Years ago my previous neighbor on the same floor, an elderly lady, was hearing noises that nobody was making and even called the cops on me.

I went up and stood outside his door to listen to his slurred mumblings, and what I could make out is that he kept talking about "beat the sh!t out of you" or something. He's a nice guy and I've never had cross words with him in the very little I've talked to him over seven years. However, if in his insanity he thinks I'm making some weird racket and is telling this to others in the place or management, that's a problem. He and his sister have smoked in the place and it came down to my apartment. You're not allowed to smoke, but I've never contacted the management. Management has sent out several texts about not smoking and to turn in those who do. Maybe somebody else turned them in and he thinks it was me and is pissed and trying to be a stickler about noise rules; don't know. I watched The Shining last night, and if this guy has cabin fever like Jack and comes after me with an axe, I might have a problem.

^ The joys of appartment living, you'd wonder how he can keep that up for years, where does rent money or booze money come from ? Unless his sister is keeping him, you might need to be a little more alert if he's strong enough to swing an axe.

I believe he's on disability (don't know what his issue is), so you and I are paying for him. He hasn't worked in the seven years he's been at the place, barely even goes outside. A liquor store is a hop, skip and a jump away, so that was probably a big attraction for him. If this guy came at me I could probably take him, though they say the mad have strength.

Yeah I think sometimes in losing sanity people's adrenaline glands get hardwired or something, paranoid, they get reduced to baser animal instincts, constantly in fight or flight mode.

Man. Past week or so I have been feeling exhausted all the time. I have been trying to cut back on coffee so maybe that's it. Once I've had a cup I feel a little better. I was up for maybe half an hour today before I felt like I couldn't stay awake. (felt great when I first woke up but didn't last long). Finally succumbed and drank a cup of coffee and have been feeling better ever since.

i get super annoyed over petty things. i guess i'm a petty person. those 2 flatmates didn't take keys when gone out, need me to let them in. leave a mess in the kitchen again. dishes undone, strewn everywhere. leave hair trimmings and pubic hairs around the bathroom. never clean. always talk late. squeaky door. leave front door wide open, never lock it. dirty footprints everywhere. stupid kids. i am an old man waving my stick at them angrily. damn kids. filthy kids. see to your own affairs. take responsibility for your mess. such anger.


all pettiness built up. a good excuse to not talk to them. a good excuse to be flawed and broken. justify my own weakness. idiotic.

First time in my life I got a random hankering for boiled cabbage. So I picked out a head of cabbage at the store (as I have never bought or cooked a cabbage before I had no idea if I was picking a good one or not so I just picked one that looked like I thought a cabbage should look).

Chopped it up and put it in the slow cooker with some onions and garlic and let it go for 6 hours. Got it out and ate a big serving of it with some chicken. Do not know why I never tried it before. I remember when I was a kid my grandmother used to boil cabbage and I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever smelled.

Shaved my facial hair off on Sunday and went to the liquor store on my lunch break on Monday to get some brewskies for after work that night (which when I'd be off would technically be tuesday!) The lady behind the counter asked me for ID and I was both shocked and flattered! Without hesitation I fished out my wallet, started digging out my driver's license and proudly commented "Why certainly!"

Her reply was priceless "Oh god...you're way older than I think you are, aren't you?"


Made my day!

Ding dong obviously once again forgot a tissue in her laundry too. Forgetful or inconsiderate? I'm not sure. But the moving in at 1am, screaming at upstairs neighbor to shut up, hiding a dog and also possibly hiding a boyfriend from the landlord (not that I give a flying f**k about our slumlord).

Hmmm....
Hehehehe...I'll eat crow. My MP3 player went in the washing machine last night. Nearly went through the dry cycle too which would have been a disaster of melting plastic. Turned-on the dryer and heard some clunkety noise and thought it was my jacket's zipper, so went to go look. Nope, it was the MP3 player.



I bought it 2/22/2015 for $36. RIP Sandisk.
