Absentee Landlord

My apartment currently has no heat. This happens from time to time, it’s an old building, and things are bound to break down. What makes this the worst though, is that our landlord is what you would call an “absentee landlord”. The man disapears to the Dominican Republic every winter, doesn’t tell us how to get in touch with him, and never lets us know when he’s going to get back.

Also, in order to get down to the basement, where our water heater is, you have to go through the office that is downstairs. So we clearly can’t do anything about it during the weekends. So basically for the last three days we’ve been freezing our asses off and there’s not a damn thing we can do except wear two pairs of sweats, multiple sweatshirts, mittens, and slippers. Sexy, I know.

So what do I go and do? I plan a weekend getaway in two weeks to go to the Dominican Republic with three of my friends from Rhode Island. Can I afford it you ask? No way in hell. Call it cold induced insanity. I call it just good sense.

Cold sweetie? Make a nice cup of hot chocolate and pour in some butterscotch schnapps. Get a nice warm blanket and pop Faith Rewarded into your DVD player. Sip the choco and think warm thoughts of Mr. Wakefield while watching our boys. You’ll be nice and toasty in no time. 🙂
