12:00pm: neighbor #1 returns home wearing loud shoes and, as usual, turns on the bass. after knocking on the wall and mildly shouting obscenities for a bit, i throw the towel in and go online to see how cyberspace has been fairing without me.
i will temporarily forgive neighbor #1 since i ended up having a nice IM with a friend in austin.
1:30am: return to bed
2:30am: neighbor #2 begins drumming on something (i'm not sure what). DRUMMING!!! after knocking on the wall and mildly shouting obscenities for a bit, i throw the in towel and go online to document my sleepless night in cyberspace.
someone has put the hoodoo on me in the form of noisy neighbors.
for now, i'm trying to return the downside of the Golden Rule by listening to the stereo. round 2 shall commence at approximately 6:30am. while i play the drums along with it.
i can't decide whether i should risk digging my earplugs out of the drawer and possibly missing the alarm.
