I've been so out of it for the past week, sorry to take so long to reply. By now you might have moved? It's rather distressing that the landlord would be showing the apartment while you were living in it, but perhaps considering the economic times, he really needs the money? I've never lived on my own, but is a that standard policy for apartment renters, or just your landlord's?
I've actually borrowed a book from the local library on upcycling t-shirts. It's pretty awesome, although I'm still kind of...practicing. I have all these old orchestra shirts that I never wear but might come in handy. Now I wish I had more oversized t-shirts.
South-Packard. Yes, with a hyphen. It sounds like some sort of company that deals in...possibly paper products?
Have you gotten any yet that are really pure jibberish, not even potentially a word proper?
