Laverne & Shirley, Lenny & Squiggy

I think we saw one of their apartments this weekend while we were looking at duplexes in Milwaukee. It's a common Milwaukee thing, but evidently not so much in the rest of the country. What we saw ranged from "frat boy chic" (and I used the term "chic"extremely liberally) to uber-modern.

We learned several things:
  • Living closer to campus might be nice for students, but isn't so nice if you want to be a landlords.
  • Polka dots all over the walls leading up to the second floor entrance may only be a nice idea if it's not the owner's apartment.
  • There are many versions of the alcohol periodic table that also tells you how to contruct various drinks.
  • Pool tables and ping pong tables are popular in dining rooms of college students.
  • Too many people paint over wood trim for no good reason.
  • A queen-size bed will take up most of the space in the largest bedroom in nearly all the apartments we saw.
  • A house that costs $125,000 more than another, really is a lot nicer than its less expensive counterpart.
