Note to self

If you are ever again living in a rental unit that has two locks on the door, but you are given a key to only one, ASK FOR THE KEY TO THE OTHER. Otherwise the condo association maintenance unit might manage to lock you out of your home, and you might not notice until after 11 pm on a weeknight, when there are few neighbors awake to help you out, and you'll have to depend on a friend in California to coerce someone at a cafe in California to let them use their computer to look up the after hours help line, so that you can wake someone up to bring you a ladder to help you break into your own home. Which is really not how you want to finish off a lovely evening of baseball, especially if that evening was already less lovely than anticipated because the Giants blew the game in the end (Note to Armando Benitez: What the fuck, dude?) , and especially when you have to leave the house at 7 am the next morning to catch a flight to California and you haven't begun to pack yet.

On the plus side, this forced us to meet our neighbors. Or at least the neighbors who wander around at 11:30 at night.
