Apartment surveillance

I just moved into my apartment a month and a half ago and havent really had any problems untill the other day. When i came home from work i noticed a few things moved around but didnt really give it any thought. Then i went to go to sleep that night and noticed a few things moved around in my bedroom and that made me a little concerned. I spoke to the people at the rental office and they said they didnt have any maint. scedualed for that day at my appartment. So i went home and changed all of my locks and requested to be contacedt before anyone from their company enters my appartment.

Let’s attempt to List Every Book You’ve EVER Read

I think it would be cool to have a thread where we list books we’ve read, and as we remember them we can come back and edit our list. We can also help each other figure out the names of books if we just remember the story, and use each others list to help remember. Anyways I’m going to start my own list, I’m sure it will take a while to remember most of them. If you participate you should keep your list in one post, and use other posts for discussion and such.

What Are You Reading??? v.New

I just finished The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway
I just picked up for whom the bell tolls
I also wanted to get Haunted by that fight club guy
The Sun Also Rises was great.

Just finished Haunted. I only found it mediocore. Maybe I was expecting too much. Some of the short stories were really well done, but the overall connecting story did nothing for me.

Rereading Huxley’s Brave New World at the moment.
Boy’s Life by Robert R. McCammon

Wine Recomendations

My favorite under $15 wine recomendation:
Estanice Cabernet Sauvingnon
Average Price $12 in VA. Available in most wine retailers
Tasting Notes:
Every year its a consistantly good bottle of wine. I have never had a bad vintage. It will easilly age for 10 years, however is always drinkable now.
