Alex Fulton's Flirtatious Use of Crazy Color

This past June my fiancee and I moved into an apartment that was perfect location wise--we could carpool to work and save lots on gas! Not in the best area, but not horrible, and the apartment itself was pretty cute. We moved everything in and settled in. Meanwhile, my fiancee had accrued quite a few itchy bites... which we didn't pay attention to because we had been to a few bbqs and just figured it was mosquito bites. So we kept buying stuff, stocking stuff, etc. After a week and a half, Will was completely covered in bug bites. I had maybe 4, but given that I have a lot of free time at work I decided to research "bed bugs"--you know, those mythical creatures mommy and daddy always tried to scare you with. Unfortunately as I looked at the billions of website I realized that the marks and patterns of bites were exactly that. When we got home we ripped the bed apart and low and behold there were 5 bedbugs!! We never had that problem before, and found out from the neighbors downstairs that the people who had just moved out had bed bugs. Awful nasty things! We called the landlord and got out of the lease and got our money back and moved in with my mom temporarily while we found another place (after fumigating the hell out of everything of course). A few weeks later we did find one, where we are now, and we've been here for a month and it's perfect. No bugs! But moving 3 times within a month or so was hell.

I like it. I don't know many people who actually use their fireplaces anyway so it's wasted space outside of the pretty decor it offers. :) It wouldn't work in mine because it's got doors though. Bummah.
