I have on my list "video - dance/funny faces - nasty gorgeous song". I don't think it's going to happen. Here's how far I got with the project.
I received an email the other day from this guy, whose blog I always enjoy reading. He sent me a picture of me saying, "This sure looks like you, doesn't it?" He had found it on a m4m (that's man for man) personal ad on Craigslist in Las Vegas. It's a picture from this blog some past winter ago. So I guess somebody is using my picture instead of their own. See, now I don't really understand this. If you end up meeting the person in real life, which I would think the goal of the personal ad is, then you're not going to look like the picture, you know, because it's NOT YOU. What's the point? Anyway I can't decide if I'm flattered or grossed out by the whole thing. Flattered feels better, I think I'll go with that.
We've been showing the apartment. One girl applied for it, her credit is clean, but both of us got a "trouble" vibe, like she's the kind of girl who could really get on your nerves. She went from "oh it's much smaller than it looked in the pictures" to "it's so cute, I love it" in ten minutes time. Still, psycho is fine as long as she pays. It looks like we'll have to go to court now if we want to get Jimmy's father to pay the $700 ($40 for june, 600 for july, 60 for the missing stuff) because he's now playing games, never available to come to the phone, etc. etc. I have a feeling the hassle is not gonna be worth recovering the money, though we will send the registered letter and then a lawyer letter to see if scare tactics work. Look at it this way, I tell myself, in 6 months you'll make that money up in not smoking. Not worth stressing about.
