BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk he bemoans the fact that he cannot go for a flying journey around Boston until his super hero cape arrives. I can hear you asking, Where is it Well, APARTMANTMAN (TM) ordered it from the super hero "cape warehouse" out west and they promised to send it out by UPS " ASAP". Did it get here ASAP Of coarse not which is why APARTMENTMAN (TM) is telling you this story. After waiting forever for the cape, APARTMANTMAN (TM) came home one day (Tuesday) to find the famous UPS sticker attached to his door. "We attempted delivery. Next attempt will be after 5:00 on Wed. How much after 5:00 is the wonderful mystery of the UPS System. Thinking he could find a better way, APARTMENTMAN (TM) calls the infamous 1-800 number since he knows his satisfaction is paramount in the mind of Corporate America. After 20 minutes of being told that his call was important to them, a mechanical, emotionless voice tells APARTMENTMAN (TM) to just enter the bar code number and his package will be held for him at the station. Jumping with glee our hero follows the directions and smiles to himself as he anticipates picking up his cape on the morrow and resuming his airborne antics, cape in hand or, actually, on back. Arriving at the Watertown UPS station as instructed, our hero approaches the counter ticket in hand. The clerk takes the ticket, punches in the computer and voile tells APARTMENTMAN (TM) that the package is out on the truck to be delivered today. Wasn't it requested to be held here says our hero Looking at his computer screen the clerk replies, Yep it was but our communication system is not terribly good. Is there a customer service number I can call here Well actually you can call the 1-800 number and maybe they can help you. " So there is no local number or person I can talk to to help me get my package "That's correct." comes the response.. Knowing the importance Corporate America places upon individual consumers and customer service APARTMENTMAN (TM) decides to forego the quicksand like swamp of the 1-800 jungle. Frustrated, but not yet beaten our hero takes to the streets and what does he see but a UPS truck. Pulling up behind the truck he warily approaches the driver and asks if he has the package sought. No replies the driver but here is a local 617 number to call. Like magic, the number is dialed, a human answers the phone, and within an hour the package is located and delivered by the truck driver who took the time to give him the phone number. Is he the head of human resources Is he the head of customer service No, just a driver without a title, trying to help. With cape securely on his back APARTMENTMAN (TM) can now fly over the apartment you have been patiently waiting to hear about.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN: Sitting at a meeting for the marketing/ real estate company that pays his salary, newly hired Johnny Boring (alter-ego of Apartmentman) listens intently as his bosses tell of the next marketing campaign. His boss begins: "We have just been hired to sell (50 ) multi million dollar homes in the Boston and San Francisco area over the next 12 months. Here are a few of the less expensive prospects in the San Francisco area. Two bedroom ground floor fixer upper condo with views of the alley. Hot and cold running water included. Space for a kitchen off of the bedrooms if you feel the need for a kitchen. Shared bathroom with your neighbors who are a fine couple working the night shift at Starbucks to pay off student loans. " Raising his hand Johnny Boring receives the glare of his boss who simply feels that new hires should just listen. And yet, he leaves his hand raised to the amazement of his peers. Finally realizing that his petulant glare will not deter the likes of Johnny Boring his boss audibly sighs and nods toward his relentless neophyte employee. You have a question Standing nervously, Johnny B blurts out " Do you really believe that people are really going to spend a million dollars on a ground floor condo with a view of the alley without a kitchen, and a shared bathroom As he stands at the end of the unemployment line Johnny Boring reflects upon his choice of question as a learning process.... www.apartmentmsn.net jvcastelli@earthlink.net Click here for Map #jvc-6245417

(APARTMENTMAN (TM) phone) This is the White House comes the voice over the phone. The white house on Harvard Street answers our gullible hero of the homeless. No stupid, THE WHITE HOUSE IN WASHINGTON" comes the disgruntled reply. The big guy, aka the president, needs a place near an intellectual mecca so he can hone his verbal skills and polish his intellectual reputation. "What intellectual reputation" replies our seeker of shelter. "So you do understand our dilemma," comes the voice over the phone.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In need of a break from the frantic pace of city life in Boston JOHNNY BORING (TM), and his alter ego APARTMENTMAN, (TM) sit in a cafe reading MOBY DICK and soaking in the atmosphere inherent in the Boston cafe scene. (I can see you all shaking your heads and saying "MOBY DICK" ugh. Well that's the reading selection so just bear with it. At least "you" aren't reading it.) Suddenly an idea flashes into JOHNNY BORING S (TM) mind. How about a whaling adventure !! How about retracing the story of MOBY DICK. (Now all of you Greenpeace/save the whale types don't worry since we're not going to be harpooning any whales or killing any dolphins so take a deep breath and chill out. We're just talking about a brief sojourn into Melville land) So what does JOHNNY BORING (TM) decide to do Of coarse, he is going to New Bedford to find the starting point of MOBY DICK Arriving in New Bedford, our hero loses himself in his imagination. He feels the cold, unforgiving ocean winds and sees himself before the mast alongside men named Captain Ezekiel Hardy, killed by a sperm whale on the coast of Japan in 1833. Suddenly, after hour of wandering the streets of New Bedford, our whaler in training realizes that he needs a place to stay. (Kind of like you which is why you're reading this ad. )Will he be able to find the actual Spouter-Inn Can he find the harpooner/Queequeg (Queequeg, for all you who haven't been willing to force yourself to read MOBY DICK, is the tattooed naked harpooner in the book.) Will he be able to retrace the steps of Ishmael. Entering the nearest Inn, our intellectual voyager approaches the innkeeper. "Avast" matey, where can a whaler find a bunk for the night Behind the desk sits the clerk. Momentarily stunned he regains his composure with a startled "huh. " " I'm setting sail tomorrow in search of MOBY DICK and I need a place to stay. " Oh I see is this some type of college initiation or something comes the response " Stand fast matey, I need a bunk to rest my bones. "Well, all I've got is a single bed with a shared bath." "That will do." "Top of the stairs last door on the left." Reaching his room, JOHNNY BORING (TM) (JB) for short, stretches out on his bed and begins to imagine days before the mast. Suddenly, the door opens and in walks a dark complexioned chap, naked with tattoos all over his body. In his hand is a six foot harpoon gleaming from its sharpened point. Panicking, JOHNNY BORING (TM) blurts out, "Queequeg " Startled, the man answers laconically, "yes, me Queequeg. " Not knowing if he is dreaming, or suffering one of his momentary flashbacks caused by attending too many Grateful Dead concerts, our hero of the homeless slaps himself in the face. Realizing that he is not dreaming, our whaler in training decides that a naked man with a harpoon is too much Herman Melville reality for him and bolts from the room. Running by the clerk, our sojourner of the seas flees his New Bedford residence in search of a more private home in Boston. Here is what he finds for himself, his shipmates and and for you. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT Here's the apartment you've been waiting for. You enter into the hallway (you can call it a foyer if you want to impress your friends) which measures 10.5 ft x 8.5 ft. To the right is a large closet and straight ahead is the kitchen which measures 13. 5 ft x 6 ft with new wood cabinets and electric range. (You say you want a gas range but who are you kidding since you know you never cook anyway-you can pop your meals into the microwave) To the right off of the hallway is the bathroom which is a nice older charming bathroom with a pedestal sink. (Or just an old bathroom if you don't like older charming bathrooms with pedestal sinks) To the left of the hallway is the living room which measures 10. 5 ft x 18. 5 ft with two windows at the end which face west so you can get a tan as you ponder life. The alcove is off of the living room and measures 8.5 ft x 10. 5 ft. The ceilings are 9.5 ft high.Hardwood floors throughout. Laundry in the basement.

Can he just give the right answers to this questioner His interlocutor arrives with the perfunctory dark suit, a red tie and a suitably serious look on his face.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In the continuing saga of "APARTMENT MAN," (TM) our hero has just finished attempting to find work that would take full advantage of his native skills, as well as his slightly less than marketable college degree. Where to find the job that would allow him to use his unbridled imagination and creative abilities to the fullest Where to employ a mind that still believed that "The Hobbit " was an accurate account of human history. Studying the help wanted section of his local paper an opportunity appears. "Vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing needed at "Needless Markup," a local well known retail store Experience in inducing an irrational buying frenzy in homo sapiens a plus. " (You can insert whatever retail store name you like !) What is a vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing How will working as a price tagging clerk help our hero of the homeless flex his flagging, flaccid intellect Good questions !! To a lesser mind a price tagging clerk, even a vice president, is someone who merely spends days attaching price tags on items for sale in all local retail stores. However, to our undaunted, product of the American educational assembly line, the chance to take full advantage of the creative opportunities are clear. He will be employed marking up sales prices !! He can create whatever he likes. How far can he push the creative envelope Louis Vinyl purses on sale for $400.00, reduced from $3,000.00, a possibility. (Talk about marketing. How did anyone get anyone to pay these prices for an ugly vinyl brown bag ) Dresses on sale for $200.00 reduced from a $1,000,000. 00 . What was the product actually worth Who cared !! Did anyone ever ask or check if a sale item was ever really offered for sale at the original price Of course not ! Merely being on sale was enough. The possibilities were endless. He could imagine the lines outside the stores. He could imagine the legions of shoppers at "Needless Markup" shrieking as they scooped up the last of the hot pink spiked heels on sale for $375. reduced from $1,500.00. He would influence history. Just then, the phone rang and it is you, the reader of this ad calling to ask about the apartment. Here is what you will be told about the apartment you have been patiently waiting to hear about.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In need of a break from the frantic pace of city life in Boston JOHNNY BORING, (TM) and his alter ego APARTMENTMAN, (TM) decide to seek solace in the sunny climes of Greece. Where to go What to see How about Delphi. That oracle of the olive growers. That navel of the Greek world. The home of the pythian games. Why not After what seems like an interminable flight, our undaunted Grecophile lands on the sunny shores of Socrates. Immediately boarding a bus from Athens, JOHNNY BORING (TM) begins the winding trip to the sanctuary of Apollo. Mile after mile through the mountains, our consort of the Corinthians relaxes as he anticipates walking the pathways of Pericles . Suddenly, in the distance it appears. As the bus rounds the corner JOHNNY BORING (TM) spies the treasury of the Athenians. The small structure standing as a testament to the heroes of Marathon. Paid for with the spoils of the Persians, it still stands stark and resolute against the olive groves of the mountains. (Are you still with me on this ) As his bus grinds to a halt, JOHNNY BORING (TM) can contain himself no longer. Leaping from the bus he climbs the steps to the throne of the oracle. It still stands !! Running by the treasury of the Athenians JB, (Short for JOHNNY BORING ), (TM) reaches the remaining columns of the oracle. While the ages have taken a toll on the marble columns, a remaining few still proudly stand. There at the end of the temple sits a woman muttering to herself. Laughing, shouting rocking back and forth JB cannot believe his eyes. Can this be a daughter of the seers who foretold the future of the Greeks of yore (Yore is one of those funny old words you never get to use except in Chaucer class. So I thought it might be fun to use it. Sorry!) Mesmerized, JB respectfully sits and awaits the pronouncements of the prophetess. Suddenly, as if to break the magic of the moment, the mysterious mystic slowly turns and faces our supplicant. As she turns, the fear that must have confronted the Spartans at Thermopylae descends on our vacationer. What he sees before him is not a descendent of the followers of Apollo. What he hears is not the pronouncement, warning the Athenians to find shelter from the Persians behind wooden walls. What he sees before him is a real estate agent shouting into a cell phone that she can't hear the offer because the cell phone is breaking up. Undone, (an archaic use of the word I admit), JB flees what had become a nightmare to return to the Odyssey of apartmenthunters everywhere. To find a nice and not too expensive home in Boston.

A bunch of Greek Gods are looking for apartments in a nice quiet neighborhood near Brookline. Zeus insists, however that the house must be owned by a Grecophile. Why you ask Probably because Zeus figures that he fathered so many children on earth in his travels among the mortals that it is likely that the people who own the apartment are related to him. He wants to keep the money in the family!! (Right now you are thinking that the guy who is writing this is completely looney tunes.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In need of a break from the frantic pace of city life in Boston JOHNNY BORING (TM), and his alter ego APARTMENTMAN,(TM) decide to seek solace in the sunny confines of the Caribbean. A week of sun, relaxation and scuba diving is what is needed to recover from the arctic onslaught of Boston's winter. He finds the perfect island getaway, books the flight, and next thing he knows he is boarding a dive boat searching for adventure among the denizens of the deep. Mask on, air on, weight belt on, BC firmly buckled up, JOHNNY BORING (TM) leaps into the deep blue sea hoping for a land where cell phones cannot ring, and car horns are a thing of the not too distant past. As he descends he sees in the distance what appears to be signs, balloons, and flashing lights on the edge of the reef. What can it possibly be Needing to investigate, our hero of the home seekers frantically kicks his feet to discover what has invaded his previously tranquil world. Slowly he approaches and the distant reef comes more clearly into focus. A few feet closer, and the haze of the water gives way to a crystal clarity that reveals the underwater undertakings of that most persistent of bipeds. Freezing motionless in the water, our scout of the seas sees an image that causes him to hyperventilate in terror. There, under the water, is a creature without pity. An animal that strikes fear in the hearts of the most heroic. As APARTMENTMAN (TM) begins to empty the air from his tank, his eyes rapidly focus on the balloons and signs directly ahead. A familiar sign reads "Welcome to the Cold Water Banker Open House." "We have ranch and colonial style reef space to fit your budget." We can help with financing, and also arrange reef inspections through our in house certified team of inspectors. You better act now while the space and air lasts! To the right of the sign is what he believed he had escaped. Smiling with a stream of bubbles flowing upward toward the surface, is a real estate agent in a wet suit, cell phone in place, underwater BMW parked by the curb of the reef. Panicking our hero of the homeless rockets to the surface where he is pulled from the water and immediately placed into a hyperbaric chamber where he can contentedly breathe pure oxygen and dream about the apartment you are about to discover. Here it is.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As "Johnny Boring" (TM) the alter ego of APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his dead end desk job, he wonders if the new suit he bought on sale at Marshalls would be considered a "power suit" so important to the advancement of careers these days. His boss, Molly Misanthrope happens by as his need for sartorial confirmation peaks. "What do you think of my new suit Molly," Johnny stupidly asks. Slowly her eyebrow raises, and her lip curls, "Well the black and white zebra stripe shirt is certainly a statement. However, she continues, what I think really sets you apart is the bright orange jacket and pants highlighted by the matching shoes. "You like it then, he crows" Absolutely!

He, and some other hobbits, are leaving the shire and need an apartment in Boston. (Just bear with me on this!)

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In need of a break from the frantic pace of city life in Boston JOHNNY BORING, (TM) and his alter ego APARTMENTMAN, (TM) decide to seek a break from the frenzy and cold of the streets of New England. Where to go What to see What to do Suddenly, looking down at a travel magazine, he sees the answer. Take a trip through the Alps and retrace the steps of Hannibal and his Carthaginian cohorts. Why not, blurts out our hunter of homes. (I am sure right now all of you are giving a million different reasons to go to a million other places besides retracing the steps of a bunch of pachyderms through the mountains of Italy. But it's my vacation so you are stuck. So sit back and try to enjoy it.) Arriving in Spain, JOHNNY BORING (TM) is met by his guide and his 2 ton floppy eared transport named, appropriately enough "tiny." (Now granted Hannibal wouldn't have an elephant named Tiny in his entourage, but this is a NY based travel agent and they had to get the elephant from a circus.) Anyhow on with the story. (We will get to the apartment I promise.) Climbing through the mountains, our hero of the homeless, is told by his guide of the coming battles confronting the long dead scourge of Rome. Stopping one night at the pass of the Gauls, JB (that's short for JOHNNY BORING) decides to take a walk alone. As he turns the corner a voice comes out from behind a boulder. "I need a (1)bedroom apartment quickly," comes the voice from behind the rock. Thinking he has consumed too much wine at altitude, JB rubs his eyes, shakes his head, and utters his famous phrase that once again illustrates his unusual oratorical abilities, "huh." Once again the voice behind the boulder says, "I need a one bedroom apartment." "Who are you," blurts out the oratorical descendant of Demosthenes. "I am Hannibal" comes the faceless voice of the rock. "Oh sure I am Scipio Africanus," responds JB. " Do you want to meet at Zama next week" "Do not mock me mortal, I am the spirit of Hannibal." "I am doomed to roam among these mountains until some real estate agent sets me free by helping me find an apartment in Boston." (Right now you are saying "Oh my god I can't believe what I am reading." But I swear it really is the truth and Hannibal needed a place to stay in Boston so what could I do--forgetting for the moment that America wasn't discovered when Hannibal lived but heh he read about America in the Alps Gazette.) Returning to our story line, JB takes pity on Hannibal and says quite deftly, "are you sure you only need a 1 bedroom" I mean what about your brother Hasdrubal and all the elephants " Hasdrubal had his head cut off by Nero years ago and won't need an apartment anymore replies Hannibal as tears come to his eyes. "Wow didn't he pay the rent on time "That's even tougher than Boston landlords." Knowing not how to respond to the stupid, though well intentioned utterances of JB, Hannibal grimaces and sternly says, "can you help me find a place or not." "Sure I can help !" Whipping out his fully charged MAC, our purveyor of properties takes Hannibal and you on a journey to the apartment you have been waiting to hear about. Here it is. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT (heat and hot water are included in the rent) )The bathroom is all newly tiled and features a set of lights over the vanity so you can do whatever you do with a set of lights over a vanity.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN APARTMENTMAN Sitting at his desk the ("A") phone rings. (That's APARTMENTMAN's (TM) phone in case you aren't familiar with super hero communication techniques) Picking it up he hears on the other end " This is the secret service" . "We need a one bedroom hideaway in Brighton/Brookline for THE BIG GUY". "You mean Leonardo Di Caprio is coming to town" The secret service agent freezes on the other end of the line, "No not that big guy, the other big guy". Can you help us I'll do my best. Reciting the phrase that transforms him into APARTMENTMAN, (TM) he begins: "Fee, Fi Fo, Fum APARTMENTMAN here I come. Poof the mild mannered Johnny Boring is transformed into magically into APARTMENTMAN (TM) where his X-ray/telescopic vision allow him to see the perfect 1 bedroom apartment. (There are those of you out there who may not appreciate the poetic artistry of super hero transformation phrases. Granted W.B. Yeats will not feel threatened by the foregoing. However, as a former student with a D- grade in poetry, JOHNNY BORING (TM) struggled to determine what phrase would convey sufficient super hero gravitas, but was simple enough for him to remember it. Hence the clever little ditty.) Thanks for bearing with me.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN . As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk, with his telescopic vision, he notices a message left crumpled up on the floor by his feet. You may ask why he needs telescopic vision to see a note at his feet. Good question. I'll have to get back to you on that. The note is from the police department. It states that $3000. in parking tickets are owed on the APARTMENTMANMOBILE. If not paid within 30 days the APARTMENTMANMOBILE cannot be registered. You may ask, "Why does a superhero need to register his car" "Also, if his identity is a secret, how can they find him to mail him the notice " Uh, moving right along. Faced with the prospects of becoming a parking scofflaw, APARTMENTMAN (TM) leaps from his desk, hops into theAPARTMENTMANMOBILE, and heads to city hall to pay his tickets. He pulls into the city hall parking lot and what does he see He sees 400 parking spaces all designated for city employees. Far to the end of the mile long lot, he sees 2 spaces for citizens. He pulls in, approaches the meter and realizes it is $.25 for 5 minutes. Also, there is a 10 minute maximum time allowed. He puts in his quarter, runs to the building and waits in line. The time ticks. Finally, he gets to the front, pays his tickets and dashes back to the APARTMENTMANMOBILE to find, you guessed it, a new ticket. It may be easier to find an apartment than to beat city hall. Well here's a nice place to begin.
