revenge of the creepycrawlies - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
revenge of the creepycrawlies
The landlady has finally conceded that her efforts to date regarding the creepycrawly Situation in our building have been inadequate and agreed to call in professional reinforcements. Exterminators will be coming round in a week, maybe two, to do whatever it is that real exterminators do in this day and age.

This presents me with a problem. I've got chemical allergies up the proverbial wazoo, and an unfortunate incident during our move a few years back leaves me particularly sensitive to pesticides. So if Orkinix or whomever are to do a proper job in our building, including hitting our unit, I may need to not be here for a couple of days or even more, which means that I have to scramble to find a place to stay until the all-clear. I'm waaaay too broke to just hole up in a hotel for the duration, alas... So I'll throw this open to the Readers, while I'm checking my own sources-such-as-they-are: has anybody got a spare-room type of situation I could come and crash in for a short while sometime in the near future? My undying gratitude would be your only reward, but hey, who knows what that might be worth someday, eh? ;)

EDIT: Forgot to add that I guess depending on whom the landlady hires the cats might need to evacuate as well, which would mean they'd come along with me. So factor that in with your kind offers, thanks...

Maybe. If my current roomate (Sunday) moves by the end of the month, I will have an extra room.

Let's keep in touch and see how that works out!

Might be looking at even nearer-future than that, but with my landlady who knows, so OK, I'll keep that in mind. (She plans to have them in twice with an interval, to round up whatever may hatch out after the initial application, so I can see this dragging out for some time... {sigh})

Yeah, I had just logged back on to add that they might need to travel with me; my previous, very elderly cat developed a massive tumor before she died of basically being an 18YO cat (saddle thrombosis was what led us to the euthanasia decision), and I've always wondered if it was related to the pesticide incident mentioned above.

Mum works such insane hours that she'd barely be in it much, LOL.
