Today is Day #2 of No Hot Water in our building because the janky oil company our landlord employs did not make it out here yesterday, and if I get back from work and there is still no hot water, I am going to be mad and do nothing about it. Since I have yet to pay my November rent, I really do not want to talk to my landlord.
It is times like this when I wish I was physically able to be one of those people that can go weeks without showering, but if I don't shower each day, I start to get visible dandruff, and so since I have to go to work today and interact with the world I am going to take a cold shower and try not to die after I finish this cup of coffee.
Speaking of coffee, I think my coffee maker might be broken as in it leaks grindy coffee water everywhere and I do not know how this happened, but it is something that adds to the irritable mood I already am in due to the lack of a hot shower, due to the fact that my downstairs neighbor has a drum kit in their living room that someone is playing right now, due to the fact that the dishes are piling up on our counter because yeah, did I mention we don't have hot water to wash them.
I was woken up many times through the night last night by the tv and my roommate talking loudly on the phone in the living room. At some point, I woke up to hear every word of her loud conversation and looked at my clock to see that it was 4:30. At that point, I woke up and told her to go talk in the kitchen. I don't sleep nearly as well in this room as in my old room which was isolated in the hall away from all these little noises.
I bought a copy of John Updike's Rabbit, Run for 1.95 yesterday while Adele and I, dirty, tired and unshowered wandered around stores in Williamsburg. I watched Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives last night and there is so much I fucking want to say but I am so irritable because of this lack of hot water thing and the interuppted sleep I got and by the fact I have to go to work soon and by everything. Fuck showering. First masturbating. I must get rid of this stress.
