Clown make up and deer carcass...

I'm going to ease into posting here, since I'm not used to the whole blogging thing at all...

Well, as most of you probably know, my plan was to move into a studio apartment in the West Village this past weekend... but long story short, that's not happening.

So I'm back to square one on the apartment search...

I've got various friends offering varying levels of help, from asking their friends about potential apartments/roommates to some just giving friendly apartment-hunting advice like this gem I received in a 3 a.m. text message:

"Remember if an apartment smells like clown make up and deer carcass leave immediately."

So... I guess no New Jersey. (Now karma is going to make me end up in Jersey, I just know it.)

It's nice to know I have friends who only want the best for me.

In all honesty though, I've got my eye on possible apartments all over the place this time, including in the (way) Upper East Side, Brooklyn, the Bronx and even a couple in Jersey City near the PATH Train and one in Staten Island... which would be an interesting experience to say the least.

For those not familiar with Staten Island, my commute to work and anything in Manhattan would always include a (free) 20 minute ferry boat trip... which would be so weird, hehe. I wasn't even a fan of taking the ferry into the Magic Kingdom from the parking lots... so we'll see how I feel about it when I take it to look at the apartment. I'm sure it's much cleaner and even more pleasant than the Disney ferry, right?

I'll definitely let you all know how the apartment hunt turns out and probably about plenty of the bumps along the way...

I'd be a little scared that your friend apparently knows what clown makeup and deer carcass smell like.

The one time I visited Staten Island, I found it to be rather quaint, with an abundance of hot Italian chicks. However, you will have to put up with the stigma that you are living on a garbage dump. Still better than Jersey though.

Scot, the only reason ANY of us know what clown makeup and deer carcass smells like is related to reasoning behind your nickname "peddy betty"
