Pssst...

Just a quick note. Yes, I'm still alive. My phone is hooked up but my internet hasn't been activated yet. I am 90% moved into the new place. Here are the most immediate pros and cons:

Pro: Huge!

Con: Paper-thin partition between the two units, meaning I can hear every word on the other side, including the woman next door pampering her cat at 5:30am ("Who's a pretty girl? You! Brrrrrrruh!")

More news soon...

insulate, insulate, insulate. try bookcases to block the noise

That's my thought, anon! Diffuse and absorb the sounds. Which means sticking furniture where I don't want it to be, but still.

I'm glad you said this because I thought it was just a crazy idea in my own mind. Now I'll really go to it. Bookcases and CD racks in the hall...

Anton, I'm glad you're enjoying! It will all be back on track in a week or so. I do have a myspace page at:

which is very much under construction.

"Awww, Morgan, who's a clever girl? You are! Burrrrrrup!"

Cat lady was moving out, so right now the adjoining unit is silent. If I feel like starting a war with the new tenants then I'll be sure to keep the "loud simulated sex" idea in mind!

As for soundproofing, THANK YOU! I'm off to have a look...
