i am pleased to say that today, i didn't have the recurring nightmare of being acosted mid-slumber by realtors. my landlord showed up as i was getting in the shower to tell me he was going to show the apartment. i asked who he was and he was a little taken aback, explaining that he's rudy, the guy who owns the building. OH, yeah. in 11 months of living here, this is the first time i've ever actually met him. haha.
