According to Nicor my gas consumption during the months of January and February (the two coldest months) had more than tripled. My regular gas bill was something like $60.00. But during this January and February, Nicor had billed me in excess of $286.00 a month. And even though I was forking over $70.00 a month since March, I was falling behind in making up the difference. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
So this coming winter, I plan to cover every window with that clear plastic, put up heavy thermal backed drapes, and live in sweats.
Second post was My Third Drive-by. With regards to the list here is what has happened so far.
1. I did not give up my apartment. Rather, I’ve systematically gone about making the place homier. I purchased a portal hot plate (which came in handy for heating up water when the gas was off), one of those fancy over priced dutch ovens to sit on the kitchen stove – just for looks – new sheets, new lamps, cushions for the dining room chairs, and a cut crystal glass to drink my cheap Moscata wine.
2. Yes, my car was tampered with as I predicted. The right headlight went out suddently costing me $142.00 to replace. And my brakes have started squeling. Price quoted. $335.00 to repair.
3. Well, unfornately, my family is not as atuned to The Stalkers/Voices as me and one of my nephews lost his job. A job that he’d held for some 14 years. His firing was well played as usual. But I know in my heart of hearts, that The Stalkers/Voices had a part in it. I’m sure the person he was accused of hitting was ‘planted’ there by them.
I’m trying to practice what I preach and not retaliate. We don’t need more Black on Black crime in the Chicago area.
