A meme! From [livejournal.com profile] notlikeyourmom!

Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don't care what you're saying. So here's a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud - well, it's entertaining boring, but out loud! Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

Long story short:

A week or two ago, I heard from Jess that the apartment complex was possibly going to install security thingies (On 10/17 see item #2) and charge us $30/month for having them. The next day, I called them and basically went "Wtf??"

I was told that nothing had been decided yet, and that if they did decide to do it, it wouldn't be implemented until Januaryish. I was also told that, if it was implemented, there would be no way to opt out. I expressed my displeasure, and she told me she would find the phone number for me to call to get in touch with the actual owners group making this decision. She never called me back.

Today, I got home to find that they had come in to my apartment and installed a security system. They also had moved things around, including my laundry, and left a small hole in my wall, which wouldn't be a big deal except they can't seem to keep bugs out as it is without putting holes in the walls.

So. A week after they told me that nothing was even decided yet, they enter my apartment WITHOUT giving notice, install something I DON'T WANT, move my things around, and leave without leaving a "notice of entry" like they are supposed to. All without ever hearing a single word from the management that they were going to do this.

And then! THEN. Then I find out from [livejournal.com profile] iremembernot that she did get a notice. She lent me the letter she got (presumably on her door?), and- well, this is my favorite part:

Effective January 1, 2008, all residents will be charged $35.00 per month for the alarm. If you choose to have your alarm monitored, you are required to have an alarm permit with the City of Arlington, the cost of the permit is $50.00 per year payable to the city. If you choose not to have the alarm monitored, there is still a fee of $35.00 per month for the alarm, however, it will not be monitored by the Network or the City of Arlington.


Did you get that? It is not even going to be monitored. It will be inert. And they are still charging us $35 a month for it.

Also, Jess just pointed out the date on this letter. It was printed the DAY BEFORE I CALLED. The name that is signed? Is the same lady I talked to on the phone. SO. The lady who sent out this letter, when I talked to her? Told me a 100% LIE.

That, THAT pisses me off even more than I was before. My fist hurts from hitting the wall. I want to go hit something else. I want to and yell at them. Loudly.

I read this book, or at least part of it, many years ago. When I was a kid, I used to wander around the library and just pick random books to read. I read lots of interesting books, and I won't deny that I read a few things that perhaps a kid should not have read. But the children's section of the library was filled with "boring" books. So, I wandered the "grown-up" section.

This particular book was about a group of people who were doing some sort of experiment. I don't remember what the point of it was, really, but basically they made up a person. They gave him a name, put him in the Civil War (I think), and basically made up an entire life for this person. Then, members of this group started dying. The one scene that sticks in my mind is when a guy from the group dies by crashing into a highway support thingy. He's just driving along, and witnesses say he went straight for the support thingy, like he was aiming for it... but other members of the group figure out that's not what happened. They remember the highway going straight through where the support thingy was, where now it curves at just that spot. The idea was that this person they had created had somehow become real, and either he or his ghost was really, really mad at this group of people. So he started killing them off in various ways, like altering the plans of the highway before it was built so that it curved instead of going straight. It was kind of bizarre, but that particular scene came to mind today and now I wanna find this book.

Any ideas?
