Heh

So I dug through the paper Sunday to find myself an apartment. I see a one-bedroom in Squirrel Hill; $595 a month with the utilities included. Sounds good to me.

I call the guy, and I'm thinking this voice is familiar -- did I look at this apartment last year? Then he says, "it's on Loretta St." Couldn't help it, I started laughing -- it's my old landlord, renting out the apartment I had to vacate last year so he could remodel. And he bumped up the price $120. It's not exactly in Squirrel Hill -- it's about 3 blocks on the other side of Beechwood Blvd. -- but it wasn't a bad place. He wants to fill it immediately, though, and I wouldn't move in for more than two months.

And now I'm gonna have "It's a Small World After All" playing in my head the rest of the day.

WORLD?

Shouldn't you sing "It's a small PATCH OF THE CITY after all".

Me meeting Chatham girls in Dublin or the roommate of the fiance of the sister of a guy I played high school football with in a London nightclub warrants "It's a small world after all".

Oh, blah. You read this nonsense often enough; I have to exaggerate to make this stuff even remotely close to interesting.

Eh, it was more the odd coincidence of the thing -- the last tenant's lease shouldn't have ended for several months. That, and listening to a guy who sounds perpetually stoned try to describe anything over the phone.

Don't like it, go back to quoting Orrin Hatch :)
