The Ice Storm

Had a nice dinner party with chris and his mother. Bekah also stopped by. It was nice to see her. I haven't seen her in a long time. Having a visitor from the mansion down the street made me think that North street is making a comeback, lol.

Took the s7c out to take some nighttime pics of the icestorm. I am posting the original and my crops of each photo.

The holly leaf original

Two crops - you should have seen the whole thing upclose in hires. These were taken at 5MP compressed and the camera can do 7MP raw.

The crops - they look like superheros

On a side note I went to go see (e:terry) and chris sing kerioki last night and it was fun.

The notebook at bigK

I never shop at kmart but my mom told (e:matthew) that there was a sale of martha stewart curtains. So we went here and I bought a robe which will constitute my pajamas for the party on friday. While I was there I saw this crazy notebook illustration. Does anyone recognize this character?

Appliance Shopping At Orvilles

We went to orville's today to shop for a new stove. I wanted to buy a new stove for the tenants too, but considering they haven't even paid this months rent (e:paul,4861) yet, that is going to have to wait.

This is what we ended up picking out. It was normally $1399 marked down to $800.

image

They had some crazy high tech appliances too, like this refrigerator with an embedded television and touch screen LCD controls.

image

image

They also had some old fashioned looking appliances that were more expensive than the high tech ones.

image
image
image

Still busy on my quest to eat all the world's sea food. That is just about all I eat now. I don't think these are even the healthy type.

Here is a pic (e:terry) took of himself at dinner.

My Tenants are making me crazy

I don't understand why my tenants just don't get the rental thing. For years they have been late, full of excuses and big complainers. I think none of them have rented before this or something. I mean who just doesn't pay their rent. I rented out an apartment at $550 and let the woman rent out the other two rooms to other students. It is a three bedroom after all. Then when they move out or don't pay she feels like she doesn't have to. This makes me insane because I am paying a mortgage on the place. Does she really think that I am going to rent out a 3 bedroom second floor apartment, 3 houses from d'Youville for $183 a month. I just want them to move out so I can start all over again with people that have a general understanding of the rental process and the means to pay on time.

Months ago we requested that they mail the checks because they were always late and (e:terry) and I were sick of stopping by 15 times a month trying to pick up the rent. They always have some excuse. Then the woman tells me she can't mail the rent because it is too hard and too expensive. After a whole bunch of drama I told her ok, she could leave it at the house for me but it better be there on time. Well now this month it is January 14th and I still have no rent from anyone in that apartment.

Maybe if you cannot afford a stamp you should not be in graduate school at d'youville and expect to live in an apartment three houses away from school. There is the whole rest of the much cheaper west side. Or maybe if you can't afford America you shouldn't go to school here. I mean I never tried to go to school in Switzerland. I knew it was to expensive for me.

My Letter Today
Dear Tenant,
I have still not received any rent from your apartment for January 07. It is totally unaccepable to not have paid rent this far into the month (Jan 14th). If you are out of town this long, you need to pay in advance.

The fact that we have to keep driving to your house and checking the mailbox is extremely irritating. This is why I asked that you send me the rent in the mail. You insisted you would have it in the box on time and you haven't. I expect you to send me the rent in the mail.

My address is ...

If I do not receive the rent in Full ($550) by Friday via US postal service, consider this a thirty day eviction notice.
Paul Visco

Their Response

Hola

Sorry that this has been happed. I have been told from the bank that december rent still in my account. I gave the December check to Henrry. In order to pay the current month I have to show my bank in Canada that the money for rent of the previous months has been taken. On Janaury 5th it was not withdrawn.

Tuesday I am going to be there, please remember that I only responsable for my portion of the rent (183).

thanks Tenant

My Response
Tenant,
I explained this to you before. We are not renting the apartment out as rooms. The rent for the apartment is $550. If you have 3 roommates it is $183 each, with 2 roomates it is $275 each , and with one person it is $550.

If the full rent of $550 for the apartment cannot be paid between the tenants in the apartment then you are going to have to move out. Consider this your 30 day notice. I cannot afford to rent a furnished 3 bedroom apartment for $183. I pay more than that for the mortgage.
Paul

770 Elmwood, Kunis, and a Names Bitch

Globe Market
Headed on down to the elmwood village today to get some lunch at Globe market. I had the tasty rice and chicken soup with turkey sandwich combo. They had olive-chocolate bars. Can you believe it (e:mike), someone is marketing what we discovered years ago - that olives taste really good with chocolate. They cost $6.29 per bar. Can you believe it?!

image

770 Elmwood
We parked in the parking lot next to the Globe Market and the back half of it was flooded with water too deep to walk in. I wonder why they didn't plan this out a little better and make it either more level or slanted so that water would drain down to the street instead of pooling in the back.
image

Has anyone noticed the building next to the Globe Market and Wilson's Farms is beginning to appear abandoned. I mean maybe it was always abandoned but there is not even a window anymore on the second story side facing Globe market.

image

Kunis To Go
On the way home we saw a sign on the corner of Lexington and Elmwood for Kuni's To Go.

image
Looks like Kuni opended up a new to go sushi restaurant right next to where the coop used to be. I am so excited about this and plan to get lots of sushi and sashimi from there. They have a website and you can order by fax. I wish the website was a little more technologically advanced so that you could just order online. I mean isn't ordered by fax a little lame for high technology and a little over the top for low technology. If anyone from the restaurant reads this - I could help you get an online order system up and running and I would be easy to use and cheap to maintain.

Here is a sample from the site that shows their menu
It appears to be a locally made website - by ingenious

Went out with nameless bitch, (e:matthew) and dave last night. We played pool and darts for a bit. I drank enough vodka and waters to be a bit tipsy.

image

Here we are making myspace faces

After drinking it is hard to keep nameless bitch out of the leftovers. She got into (e:matthew) milky egg soup but added ketchup and mustard to it.

I wish I could show you the video of this experience but I have been forbidden from posting it.

A couple pounds of sugar

We ate at Jimmy Macs tonight. I saw the graphic designer from some project at work but didn't say anything. I am really bad at talking to people I don't usually interact with unlike (e:enknot) who can talk with anyone. The shrimp and scallop with angel hair pasta was delicious.

image

I have a serious weakness for Necco waffers. Their pure sugary goodness makes me drool. I ate a whole tub of them yesterday. When I am eating them I get into this zone where I just can't stop. I crunch and crunch. Sometimes I get so into them that I almost choke requiring water. I am sure it is really bad for my teeth but I am not willing to give it up.

My Birthday Party

On Friday, January 19th I am having a birthday party at the 24. I am thinking it is going to be a pajama party. Wear whatever you want. I will actually be 30. I haven't figured out the details yet but just reserve some time in your schedule. Everyone is invited - accept Nick Matteliano, who keeps issuing threats to the estrip.org online community (e:news,935)

I can't believe these scammers

This is Yahoo President Jay Russell, I am sorry to announce that Yahoo has reached its maximum number of accounts two million. If you would like to keep your account for free send this to everyone on your list. This way we can know which accounts are being used and which accounts we can delete. Send this within 8 days and your account will remain free. Once again I am sincerely sorry that I have to do this. Please start sending. Jay Russell, Yahoo Management Renee: WHOEVER DOESN'T SEND THIS MESSAGE YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST $10.00 A MONTH TO USE IT! TO SEND 2 EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST, RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR GR



I makes me wonder if I should have just joined the darkside and been a scammer. The fact that I received this from someone on my userlist means that they fell for it. I am sure so many other people do to.

I wonder how much money all those nigerian bank scams make. Must be more lucrative than being a landlord.

I hated apple

I generally do not like apple products but it's been over a year since I got my windows Mobile phone and they haven't improved significantly. Also my birthday is coming up and I need to decide on something before I get nothing. In comes the apple iPhone

image

I really hope I get this for my birthday. At first I will use wifi until I am finally free of sprint. Then I will have to rejoin cingular. I am kind of sad to move to cingular because sprint is so fast but their customer service sucks and I actually think I end up paying more with them.

The other advantage of having a cingular connection is that it will enable all of my old devices to work again as you can switch sim cards. The htought of having a real mobile browser that renders liek safari make me so freakin' excited. It is like the web on my phone. Not the pocket IE crappy version of the web on my phone. This may actually revolution mobile internet. Not just because it is an apple browser, but because it will be hyped up so much.

The one thing I am not sure baout is if I am ready to give up my qwerty keyboard. I did this once before and i hated that withe the nokia 7710.

the real problem is that it is not for sale yet and has this warning on the apple site.:
This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.
