Being Good

OMG! There's a Simpson's arcade game on Ebay for like $1000. I'd LOVE to buy it, especially since the seller is within easy drive distance (N. Chicago). But there's no way I can afford it. It's one of my all-time favorite games. My family used to go to this Pizza Hut and have dinner with my grandparents and my sister and I would bum quarters off our mom and grandma to play that game. So not only is it a great game, but it also has wonderful memories associated with it. I'll get one someday.

Meanwhile, new people are moving in upstairs. They're quite loud. That apartment turns over about every 6 months. I have no idea why. Our apartment manager lived there for a while, but she doesn't anymore. During her term as our upstairs neighbor, her husband managed to flood our apartment by leaving a sink on. Smart cookie, that one. Geez.
