|Being neighborly, with litigation

So the condo neighbors were actually worse. We brought over a bottle of wine which they carried away and did not open. They also shut away their really sweet and rambunctious dog that just wanted to lick us and be pet and we had to listen to him whimpering desperately throughout the entire meeting. Both a friendly dog and wine would have definitely made things better as they quickly moved from pleasantries into threatening to take us to arbitration if we don't pay part of their property taxes. I'm not going to get into it further here because we're waiting on legal advice but suffice to say it's not a great situation.|
In better news I got contacted by a headhunter last week who asked me to fill out a profile at ebyline.com for possible work for the Pioneer Press. I'd never heard of that site before but it's been a great experience so far and I think it's a really neat service. It helps that I've already written three stories for the Pioneer Press which is filling the void left by Patch cutting back its freelance budget even further. Plus they actually pay better than Patch, which is nice. But I recommend any of you writing-inclined types to check the site out.
I'm reviewing Mists of Pandaria, the latest WoW expansion, and I forget that the way I want to play WoW does not mesh well with getting a review done. They introduced this new Pokemon-like mini game and all I want to do is play that but I need to dive into the new areas. But when I get there I find monsters I can't catch because my pets aren't high enough. And I've got to catch them all. Sigh. I'm going to be hooked in again and not be able to stop when I'm done with my review.
