The recipe apparently wants you to make a Gambino's sized King Cake.

Keep receipts of things like bathroom fixtures, new locks, etcetera.

When I moved in my apartment (which is part of a 100 year old house) the landlord said "hope you don't mind cleaning." I should have never signed the lease. Not only was it filthy but it was dilapidated. The entire house is caving in on itself, parts of the windows have been chewed by the previous owners dog, the kitchen floor looks like it also got chewed and ripped up by the dog, windows are cracked, and it took him three months to replace a non-working refrigerator (which he replaced with another barely working one that leaks). I found twinkies in the fireplace! Half of one wall was painted beige, but he left the other half because he "got tired of painting that wall". It took me two weeks to get the place ready to live in, and even now I can't get the place completely clean because of all the cracks and crevices that go along with living in a historic house.

HOWEVER

There was no deposit. I could pretty much leave the house in a worse condition than I found it in, and get away with no repercussions. I am moving out in May, and I cannot wait for the day that I will finally not have to hear the up-and-coming metal band next door or the girl with OCD downstairs who slams her door 18 or 19 times. It will be glorious.

(ps, there was an economy size roll of toilet paper as big as my head when I moved in, but I was not about to use it)
