current gripes

Dear Roommates,

The AC is fine --
Opening the back door too.
Don't do both at once.

Love, Cindy


Dear Gateway,

Your computers stink.
Crashing hard drives, cracked hinges --
Why does nothing work?

Love, Cindy


Dear Upstairs Neighbor,

I want to sleep now,
So stop stomping and jumping.
Silence is golden.

Love, Cindy

More haikus! Bonus!

That was my favorite part of seventh-grade English. In fact, it was about the only part I liked.

I had noisy neighbours for six months. One night, at around midnight, after trying to sleep for two hours, I stomped on the floor (their ceiling) and shook their apartment. They tried to start a fight, but were scared by Matt's size (ha ha). Now I have quiet neighbours. This might not work for you, though, since ours live downstairs. Maybe poke the ceiling with a broom. Or just talk to them.

I completely agree with you on the AC and the door. There are a number of people around these parts that tell me that it is a sign of just how rigid and uptight I am. Fortunately, I now have evidence that I am right and they are crazy. Thank you.

Yep, you can just tell them that Cindy agrees with you, and that's sure to win any argument.
