“luxury apartments”

February 15, 2010

There really should be a set of guidelines to be able to advertise an apartment as “luxury.” I moved into a “Luxury Apartment” in May and I’m still looking for the luxury. I have discovered three things that one might consider luxurious. They are as follows: A refrigerator with ice maker, washer and dryer in unit, hardwood floors. A possible fourth could be the included microwave, but hello, it’s 2010 – MICROWAVES ARE AFFORDABLE NOW!! While I like all those features, I do not find them luxurious. I find them very common things found in most households which leaves me still searching for the luxury. Oh, I just remembered the dishwasher, however, it’s one of those smaller apartment sized ones so if you put more than 3 plates and 4 cups in, your dishes aren’t going to come out clean. A garbage disposal would have been nice, almost luxurious. How about a medicine cabinet or a programmable thermostat instead of one that just says on and off, or a garbage chute. I don’t feel very luxurious when i have to drag my trash down the stairs, around the corner, behind the building as I sink in the soggy grass wrestling with the garbage can I had to buy myself. That is, of course after I go thru the buidlings ONE EXIT thru a door that does not lock behind me. I would also like to mention, speaking of doors that do not lock behind me, that we are expected to keep the main door locked at all times. However, there are no doorbells, buzzers, or anyway to get in touch with anyone in the building if you are just stopping by or say, delivering chinese food. So consistently, you can hear people banging on the door. CLASSY AND LUXURIOUS!!!

I visited my parents and family over the Easter holiday.  had a pretty good time. The drive was about 6 hours there, but i had my trusty stephanie plum books on the ipod so the time went by pretty fast.  I decided to bypass the turnpike and  just zig zag thru pennsylvania. I ended up on route 22/322 that followed the susquehanna river for awhile then snaked thru the country. It was a beautiful drive and I’m glad i was up and on the road early.

I got a call on saturday saying that i was approved for the new apartment i’d applied for – so yay!  i get to live in an old brothel.  you ahve to admit that’s pretty cool.  I’m trying to find some information on the history of the building and will share that as soon as i find something concrete.

broken fingerIn other news, i had to change my last pt session til this thursday. The finger i broke is still really stiff and hard to bend all the way. I’m not sure how long that will go on for.  I’m glad i can move it at all but i would like the pain to go away.

being 35&single leaves a lot of time to just sit around and do nothing, which i’m quite good at.  sometimes that nothing leads to interesting places on the internet and in between visiting free porn sites, i think i may have discovered the most disgusting page on the internet.  like a train wreck, i couldn’t stop looking…

and right now, i can feel a giant one festering on my back inbetween my shoulderblades.. just out of reach…
