You have been informed.


Also, I prefer alliance, but to each their own and all that jazz.  (Dwarven Paladin here I come!)

Contact established.  Seemed successful.

Translation: Looked through the window at the cafe where I was supposed to meet her. Ran away. Pretty sure she didn't see me.

But c'mon, did you go on a date-date or just walk awkwardly about for a bit or what?

Fine.  It wasn't anything excessively fancy, we just met up in a little town about halfway between our places and went for a walk up alongside the river that runs though it for a few hours, it was sunny and warm and the walk had plenty of interesting turns and twists and features so it was rather idyllic.  Eventually we ran out of path so we came back and it was decided I should leave the car there and join her on the train back to Glasgow, which we did and I learned a new car game during.  Once there we ordered & ate pizza and since she'd never seen Arrested Development before I'd brought along the first season and we watched that till the small hours.  In the morning we lounged about, watched another episode of AD, I tried the demo of Heavenly Sword on her PS3* (my first modern console experience, it starts with a QTE!) while she ate Frosties.  Then sadly I had to hop on the train home again before it got too late and my brother had a heart attack from me leaving his car sitting in a strange car park for so long.  All in all, a rather wonderful weekend.

Now you leeches stop feeding off my happiness and go find your own perfect geek girls.

Well obviously we did that.  We deep fried some haggis while wearing kilts and dancing over the moors singing "och aye the noo" and dreaming of cabers to toss.  Later we stabbed some Englishmen for oppressing us.

I shouldn't say any more now though, there's a slight chance of her reading all this after all.

Sweet fuck, just say you fucked her hard and fast so everyone can go about their business.

For some reason I think his first name is Sean.

No, you don't want to say more because it's none of our goddamned business.

(That way, if she ever finds this place, you'll look, y'know, manlier. Instead of a child who got caught with the hand down the cookie jar, which is the current message you're sending)


However
Thanks. Cheers. And, just so we're clear, I'm a little bit envious. All the fun I'm getting is an ongoing dispute with my neighbor downstairs.

For some reason I had imagined bago would be the one picking up on that.

Maybe he did, but he posted about it on another site where they don't know the context.

Ahh girls... they fine.

Umm, well I still do check your blog from time to time, but there was a few gaps and I dropped behind.  Now rectified and I'll try to pop by more often to pick holes in your work.

For the curious (Gaggle), the WoWGirl Experiment continues to go very well.  She was looking after her parent's place last weekend so we only had time to meet up for an afternoon walk along a little loch, and then both went back to our respective abodes.  This weekend she didn't have any free time, so while arguably over the last three weekends we've spent progressively less time with each other, I'm pretty sure it's just timing rather than a concerted effort on her part to get rid of me.

So pretty boring really.  Gaggle, tell us about the dispute with your downstairs neighbour, fightin' is always more interesting than lovin'.

I suppose that's fair.

He threatened me, in hyperbole I assume but still unsettling.. so I filed a formal complaint and, well, that's that for now. I still make the noises from my treadmill that got him so hot and bothered in the first place, so I'll just have to see how it plays out. I don't want to be the noisy neighbor but I honestly think my treadmilling is a) reasonably quiet, b) takes place over their bedroom which they presumably aren't occupying all day and c) I do it in the early hours of the afternoon just as I come home from work.


If I provide .gifs of them will you show me yours?

Did you do anything encourage his wrath like spit in his eye, or was he enraged from the get go?  I'd have thought asking when he was most likely to be out of the room/house would have been enough to placate someone, but it's possible he's just an angry fellow I guess.

And why would I want pictures of your neighbour/treadmill/house?  Well actually, the house would be okay, it's always good to spy on the homes of crappers.  However I still don't have any pics to share.  Okay, I did find a little 8-sec videoclip I recorded with my camera on the first day and I suppose I could grab a frame from it, but I think I'll stick with not doing that, seems safer all round.

My upstairs neighbor tends to make noise too.  One day on a weekend, I was home and I started hearing this creaking noise from upstairs.  It sounded suspiciously like my neighbor was getting it on with his wife.  Then it kept going, 10 minutes, 25 minutes, 45 minutes.. onto a little over an hour.  No stops, no pauses, just steady creaking.

I was sitting there thinking to myself, "Damn, I need to be on his diet.  Or his viagra..."

I later found out it was their new workout equipment.  Or so I was told.

You should probably not do that yeah.


I've tried talking to him a couple times, but he's incredibly angry. Seriously the most wound-up guy I've tried interacting with. I have a more or less soothing personality IRL (no no, I'm not kidding) and is generally capable of talking my way through riled up people. But not this guy. He's so wound up it looks like he's constantly having to restrain himself from strangling me, with little eyes wide open and a loud voice from the get go. I don't really have to do shit as far as I know 'slong I don't make excessive noises after ten (I own my apartment, how the hell would he throw me out?), but I do want to help alleviate symptoms if we could just communicate. But alas it's his way or the highway, etc. etc.

I imagine he's gotten so enraged because he's been annoyed by my noises for a while. What he doesn't seem to appreciate is that I had no idea that was the case, from my perspective he just sort of popped up out of nowhere and complained.


What's the crappers' take on it, is it totally out of line to have a treadmill in an apartment? I've entertained the idea that I could be wrong, but then.. this is an apartment complex, I'm just terribly happy there aren't any friggin' children stomping around.

Get a rug and some thin rubber sheets.  Place the treadmill on this, should buffer most if not all of the vibrations.

Yeah I've placed it on a rug for that purpose, but the rubber sheets are a good idea. I'll have to find a store that carries something like that.

At my old place, there was pretty piss-poor soundproofing.  In the last year, when the parents were out and the teenaged son was home I'd occasionally hear springs squeaking.  And even less occasionally the parents would come home early and I would hear yelling in Chinese.

Witnesses in the house heard Jones say "why did you pee on me Pooh Bear?" A few moments later, the witness heard the son say "Mama you done stabbed me."
