The saga of Max, Part II

i thought i had until monday to create a solution for max, but i was wrong. my landlord came to me the next morning and very rudely proclaimed that the problem had to be taken care of today, not monday, today and that i had to remember to be respectful of my neighbors. (was very insulted at the respectful part as i really like my neighbors and have really, really tried to be respectful and keep max quiet...it is not like i sit in here and pinch him when i feel like he had not howled enough.) so, i 'bit the bullet' and bought the collar that squirts lemony stuff in his nose instead of waited the three days so i could rent it (which was a 150:- to 1685:- difference!!!) which means the bookshelves i really need will have to wait a little while longer. *sigh* max seems to be responding well to the collar. i have only left him for short spells in order to not be completely traumatized by it. the first time i came home, he was looking at me with huge eyes and his whole body was shaking...a lot of the liquid was gone. poor thing! he seems to be getting a little better, which is good because i start teaching in the morning.

enough ramblings, it is time to get to work!
