It's happened again.

I bought something and it is wearable but just slightly too large so I decided to risk ignoring the cold wash / warm dryer instructions and run it thought the machines with hot water and full heat dry.

Not a sign of shrinkage.

If it had been just slightly small and I didn't want it too shrink at all I'm sure a cold water wash and hang dry would have resulted in shrinkage beyond usability.

Just the way the universe works I guess.

The only way I seem to able to stand living in my condo with my neighbours almost constant dropping of things or banging of doors etc or dogs barking outside is to have white noise and fans and other noisy things running non-stop.

I rarely just listen to music anymore because I can't hear it over the (necessary) background noise.

The only way I can listen to music or watch a movie is by wearing headphones.

I wear earplugs at times but they're not all that effective and after a couple of days my ear canals get sore.

I know buying a house is not an answer.  I've owned three houses and a cottage in the country and at all of them I've be bothered by inconsiderate neighbours.

I try to just recognize the fact that I'm never going to have peace and quiet in my life but sometimes it just gets to me and I wonder how I'm going to go on.

What is it about people that makes them want to get together in groups and make a lot of very loud noise?

I wonder if speaking loudly to be heard on  cell phones has lead to people generally talking more loudly.

Certainly I seem to overhear (not by choice) many conversations where people are screeching at each other for no apparent reason.

Sometimes when I stand under the shower for a long time I never want to get out.  I just want to stay there forever with the warm water running over me and no one bothering me and no sound other than the water getting through to me.

I don't believe in an afterlife but if I did that might be how I would want to spend it.  Suspended in the warm solitude with no sense of time.
