Gonna try to save some time and the need to repeat myself by posting this here, hoping everyone will see it before they arrive.
Couple of common-sense type house rules:
#1.) We live in a duplex, and have a shared wall with our neighbors -- a friendly enough young couple, but we have the same landlord. It is very important to monitor the volume of conversations which concern anything illicit, especially in the front patio area. Please do not speak explicitly about our communal ridiculousness in places where people who don't necessarily love us will hear you. This is very important.
#2.) There are two cats. The fluffy one is the sweetest creature alive; the short-hair grey one is the second sweetest creature alive, but if she looks or acts like she is going to take a swipe at you she probably will and it will hurt. Respect Molly's personal space.
#3.) Our turntable is shiny, red and candy-like. Regardless, please don't fiddle with it. It's a delicate piece of machinery with easily-broken pieces which are inordinately expensive to replace. Also, please refrain from putting drinks on it or on Risk & Reward (the RCA speakers).
#4.) Drink lots of water.
#5.) Respect the Horn.
See all you fucks hella soon.
Through the use of ant traps, buckets of sweat spent cleaning, and sheer strength of will, the ants are pretty under control. This will change very quickly, however, if people are leaving any food or food wrappers out. If you have a wrapper with food on it or any food to dispose (or any sugary drinks), please throw them away outside in the back green trash can. This is very important to my sanity.
