My future is coming on

I'm down in Santa Cruz, being a horrible evil landlady. Yuck. I've got the paperwork together to mount a formal eviction, but i'm still holding out the slim hope that this guy will start dealing with his stuff and make an effort to leave without my having to get all litigious and shiznit.

Not likely. He threatened to get housing inspectors to come in and fine me, or something, and says he refuses to pay rent until his list of complaints is dealt with - I already served him 30 days notice, about 30 days before he wrote the letter, so I think he's just trying to make my life difficult. Bleh. At least i'm doing everything legally, above the board, and whatnot.

Let me just say that this is horrible and I never ever want to evict anyone ever again. Sigh.

I've been watching a lot of movies and enjoying the relative peace and quiet of suburban Santa Cruz. There's an adorable tiny baby kitten (his name is, for now, Captain Marmalade, but that may change) who likes to tussle and nurse. Kittens are very entertaining! I'm getting along well with Luke and Kerri, and we joke around a lot, and i'm trying to be a good houseguest as best as I can. I'm not sure how long I will have to stay down here, so i'm being nice and stuff. Maybe I should cook a pie or something.

Landlord trivia of the day: Landlords are supposed to pay for and provide lightbulbs! Who knew!

Re:
You have one of the Compost Heap kittens too? Awwww! Is she marmalade colored? I am thinking of getting a kitten now, for my swanky SF pad!

I will definitely pass along your salutations!

I rescued the compostheap kittens! Well, I didn't evilscheme did, but then I rescued them from him since, what with a brand new baby and all, he had no way to care for them. :( I have the black and gold tortoiseshell one, she is a doll! We named her 'awk' because we are dorks. I think everyone should get a kitten! The weird thing is, about a week after rescuing the kittens from his compostheap, he found ANOTHER kitten there, that was obviously too young to be from the same litter. We told him he needs some of those "no baby dumping" stickers like on the santa cruz dumpsters, but for kittens on his compost heap. Unfortunately this kitten was much sicker and didn't make it though, :(

AWWWW awww
Wow, that's too bad about the wee composted kitten. Sad sad! It makes me proud that my kats are fixed, so they won't be deadbeat dads to another unwanted litter out there somewhere. Lucky thing that you guys found the kittens!

Your kitten is veryvery cute. I have been playing with the kitten here a lot, he's a rough customer!

May I also add that the world is a very small place?

Re: AWWWW awww
yeah, our kitten is pretty tough too! Which is weird, because she was the most anti-social, non-healthy quiet one, and now she attacks our older kitten (who is about 8 mo. old) all the time! And clims everything and torments the iguana who is about five times her size. It's adorable!

Yeah, I am having her fixed when she is older, and our other kitten just got fixed. No litters of kittens for us!@ no matter HOW cute they are.

Wanna know the WEIRDEST thing? I found you by clicking "random" and added you because you were interesting. How is that for weird?

Re: AWWWW awww
Whoa! How small, very small, this planet is. I thrive on bizarre coincidences. They give me a spooky little chill sometimes. I like that!

It seems like a rough start would make a kitten pretty butch. Like those hookers with hearts of gold. I don't know what that means, but it sounds good.

I'm reading up on your old entries, and added you to my friends list. I've been neglecting my livejournal, how naughty.

Re: AWWWW awww
yeah, coincidences make me all shivery, but in a good way.

And don't you know that neglecting livejournal is a crime in 36 states?! I am calling Livejournal Welfare Services!

Lightbulbs??

Good lord. I can't even get my landlord to provide a lock.

Re:
Yeah exactly! I think it's one of those things that nobody really cares about since lightbulbs are so cheap, but, you know. I'm not about to go hassling my landlord for a couple of bucks' worth of tungsten, dig? :D
