NO RAIN YET
it finally feels like october outside. it did the other day, but today is better because i'm in a better mood. on a day like today, mom would open all the windows in the house. it was so nice. skipper would spend a lot of time outside on a day like this, laying out on the patio, stare up into the sky and just let the wind blow through his hair. i opened my window here, which i haven't done in a long time. i did, when i first moved in, but it gets annoying closing it, locking it (it's a little stiff) and then putting the wooden bar in there for better protection against burglary or something, 'cause i'm on the first floor'. that was jaqueline's explanation when i moved in here about the bars in the windows (not burgular bars mind you), it was because we were on the first floor. i didn't it much into account until now. now that the CPO people are patrolling this place because of an increase in burglaries. well, that's the word on the street.
now that the leaves are falling more and the trees are thinning out, i can actually see more of the house on the other side of the fence. i could always see the top of it, but now i'll be able to see somebody else's world, or at least a glimpse of it, from my very own apartment. i can't believe i am awake at this hour, ten forty-six a.m is pretty good for me, and i've been up for two hours.

if you are in the market for a dust buster thingy, i highly recommend the scorpion by dirt devil. i'm not being paid to say this, but if anyone working for dirt devil sees this and wants to pay for endorsing your product, i'd be fine with that.
