    Not rats, but we had a mouse problem in our old apartment. It was fucking disgusting. I spent weeks, months, trying to figure out where they were coming from. I think our neighbor was a hoarder, so that probably had something to do with it. Anyway, I killed about a dozen mice in two months' time. For sanity's sake, we convinced ourselves they could not climb vertically--despite obvious evidence to the contrary.

    They will definitely come from other apartments. Have had the exact same thing happen to me.

    I haven't lived in an apartment in New York where I didn't see evidence of mice at least once. I'm pretty sure there's not an apartment here that hasn't had them at some point or another. Pretty sure its just all the connected row housing--they get into one and go from there.

    oh, that reminds me, the remodeling means lots of dust everywhere downstairs, and so I drew this gem in the morning, and as of 10 PM it was still there. :slayer:

    also, aravanel was right about the clusterfuck of people at the Brooklyn Target. I walked in, had toilet paper on my mind, but I immediately turned around and left.

    Would you say this falls under the realism or heroic styles?

    I did not see any evidence of mice. But we had a lot of good food to eat and I was busy screaming at my analysts on the phone, so I didn't have time to execute a thorough search.

    went to the Jersey City Target today. In and out, no problems, it was great.


    i bought a pack of 9V batteries, two per pack, and they cost $7.99 at Target. Realized later that I needed more, and so I picked up the exact same product at Duane Reade plus a candy bar for roughly $14.50. Fuck Duane Reade.

    You cannot put a price on not having to live in Jersey.
