I'm actually home on a Friday night. It's a beautiful, exciting, relaxing experience. First time in months that I actually committed to staying in. And- craziness. Someone's alarm clock actually goes off every single night at midnight. One of my neighbors. I mean, why in god's name would you set your alarm clock for midnight?? I can only conclude that it's a psychological experiment to drive their neighbors crazy. Perhaps a bet on who's going to violently knock on everyone's apartment door first. Hmmm. Good thing it stops after 10 minutes. Every day I am thankful for my "bad ear." I highly value being able to sleep on my "good ear" to muffle everything even if the trade off is asking everyone to repeat what they're saying and missing all the under the breath insults.
