So... My house was on fire last night. (in Off-topic)

[T]Vestax May 25 2006 11:17 AM EDT

At about 8:37 last night the good people living below me set their couch on fire. Their living room went up in flames, which set my living room on fire, which of course set our roof on fire.

All my stuff smells like smoke and I'm living in my new apartment about 2 days earlier then planned. I'm just wondering why they couldn't have waited a couple of days...

I take it you don't have renters insurance? At least you got your stuff out, even if it smells like smoke.

Yikes, that's terrible.
I hope the Fireman got there on time to avoid anyone being hurt.

Why on earth would they set their couch on fire?

I was told that one of the little children did it. He's like 8 or 9. The mother went into a panic. The Fire Department was only a few blocks away so the fire was contained to just the one corner of the house.

Wow...glad you're ok, that sucks man.

A friend of a mine had his apartment (and the downstairs
garage with his 48 hour old C6 in it) turn into so much ash and soot, really
scary stuff. Hope your new place has some restriction on the number of pyromaniac kids you can have under one roof...sheesh.

Kids these days! (Wait, am I starting to sound like the old person that is supposed to be saying that?) Anyway, sorry 'bout the mess, Vestax, that really is horrible. Hopefully your new apartment doesn't have any psycho kids around. If there are, just torch them first!

I'm glad you're ok!

Yeah, me too. The night before I took a nap from 6 to 9 (I was really tired) and I thought about doing it again the same day as the fire. It might have been a good thing I didn't.

As for the new house, no kids. Me and my housemates have it all to ourselves this time.

This calls for revenge! Firewire the old apartment!

Always good to be safe, and glad you are =D

That sucks man, least your stuff only smells like smoke and wasn't torched. Better get some odor remover stuff from Walmart or somewhere.
