ARGH

Things that happened today:

1) Roommate N- woke up at 4 in the morning to see a mouse on the floor
1a) and freaked out
1b) and fled the house, and wandered the streets of Bloordale weeping and wringing his hands
1c) and then wrote us a letter, explaining that he had seen a mouse and now he had to burn the house down move out
1d) and later, came home from work, put all his stuff in two garbage bags and left.

!!!!!

2) Roommate A- and I talked about what we wanted to do
2a) We made a list of required qualities for a new roommate
2b) and then looked at each other in despair and then said, in unison, "fuck this".
2c) We've decided it's time for us to move out and into our own apartments
2d) We're giving our landlord notice on Feb 1, and leaving April 1.

What. The. Hell.

Aside from the sheer ridiculousness of "I saw a mouse and now I must leave the country find new, hermetically sealed dwellings" (which, seriously, I can't even), this is a LOT to take in.

I mean, it's probably time? A's lived here for 8 years, me for 5, and we agree that we are both in a rut and want a change. Also, A has bought a condo, and takes possession in Sept.

And I would like to have sex with a dude, kind of? And it's hard to do that in an apartment with thin walls that you share with two other people.

But I can't afford my own place! Not one that's aboveground and has a full kitchen and is at least a jr 1 bdrm. I mean, I will figure it out, but GODDAMN craigslist is not giving me hope right now.

Just, whoa, you guys. I could really use a stiff drink right now.

I hope you can find something quickly! I'd want to move if I saw a mouse, but being a grownup is hard. Mmmrf.

Wow, that guy has... the world to learn to deal with. Mice! They happen! But I'm glad that this is catalysing positive change for you.
