How I feel about it all: accomplishedaccomplished but waterless
Soundtrack: Brian Eno - Needle in the Camel's Eye
Thank all of you for the lovely thoughts and comments about losing my dog. I'm feeling a lot better about it, and a lot better about my decision. I think she'd have wanted it. *hugs you all*

In happier news, I finally figured out how to make a new layout for my LJ, thanks to reading the responses cluegirl got from asking the same question. I'd still like to tweak the colours a bit (I'd like the blues to be darker), but it looks acceptable for now. Any suggestions?

In annoying wtf?! news, it looks like I'll have no water for a while. Apparently the landlord didn't pay the bill, and the water guy was here saying he'd be turning off the water. My neighbour called the manager, who said tell the water guy to call him. Well. We can't find the water guy. *sigh* I'm not having a good week. I have washed dishes, taken a shower, filled the cat waterer, filled the Britta filter pitcher, and filled the sink and tub with water. Bleh.

I did get the layout done. though, at least to this point. It's a writing theme because darnit, I want to start writing, soon! Tonight I hope I hope.

I need to do something with the colours. It's way too...white. And I'd like the blues to be darker. Ah, well, another day. I'm going to write tonight!

Here in Massachusetts, I believe it is illegal to turn off anyone's water. You'd think it would be illegal anywhere. I'd start by calling your local representative.

So far the water is still running. Whether the landlord contacted the water guy I know not. If there is nothing tomorrow, I'm calling my Rep. I'd like to call my U.S. Senator, even though it's probably not his department. Because Lincoln Chaffee is just that cool.

Be sure to deduct the days without water from next month's rent. If you read your lease carefully, it says that the management has to fulfill the terms of the contract (providing shelter and necessities such as water, trash pickup--all of that will be specified) and you have to fulfill the terms of your part of the contract by paying rent. If he's gonna be a moron and forget to pay the water bill, then he isn't fulfilling the contract.

I know that here in Texas, in the height of summer, it's illegal to turn off someone's electricity. I don't know about water, but as someone commented, look into it.

The trash hasn't been picked up this week, either, because of the shitty ploughing job the manager did. Woah, I could live cheaper this month.

For all you're having to put up with, you should be living rent-free, babe. Come on down to Texas. I'll feed you chicken fried steak and margaritas.
