It's Nearly Xmas!!  
Despite J's suffering with the lurgi we did manage to get the decorations up yesterday :) Christmas is on its way!! :D The cat thinks it's great - there's a tree! Inside! With stuff on it! It came in a box! And I've even put the beanbag he likes to sit on next to it, so he has a choice of places to contemplate his tree from. Yeah, I'm a softie :) I don't think we did anything else yesterday - lots of computer games of various sorts & J drank lemsip like there was no tomorrow ;) He's feeling enough better today to've gone to the karate grading (he's one of the examiners), tho he did skip the higher grades class before it ...

In less good news next door appear to've gone away & left their alarm clock on. SET FOR 4AM, damnit. It wouldn't matter if it just went off for 5 mins or something, but it goes on for about 2 hours if no-one switches it off :/ It's incredible how much an insistent electronic noise on the other side of the wall stops one from sleeping :( We may go sleep in the spare room till we know they're home.
Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: that same 80s stream J would love to hate if he was here ...

Oh god. My flatmate leaves her alarm set, yet she is away two nights a week. Drives me fricking crazy. She's away for about a week now, I think I'm going to have to figure out how to disable the bloody thing.

Dear lord that's obnoxious. At least I'm reasonably certain our neighbours have just been forgetful, to do it every week takes wilful ignorance!

She is actually that forgetful, bless her. On the other hand, she is regularly and consistently away overnight two nights a week, which is a fine quality in a flatmate :)

Ah, the best sort of flatmate - pays the rent & isn't there :)

I think our neighbours sometimes manage to go away & remember to switch the alarm off, but at the very least I'm sure they're totally unaware that we can hear it - I'm not sure I want to bring it up either, as we never really talk to them otherwise & it might spark off resentment on their part & I'm sure we're not the quiestest neighbours ourselves even if we do try not to be obnoxious ;)

I do pity you - I had a flatmate at Uni who went back to Africa for 6 weeks over Christmas and left an early alarm set. Perhaps not 4am, but 8am is pretty much the same when you're a, student. Especially one on holiday!

I do try and make sure ours is turned off before we go anywhere, as it doesn't turn off, ever. You'd think Sony might know better.
