Found some good blackout curtains in an apartment today. I hung them, and then duct taped around the sides to ensure no light could be seen from outside. Painting over the windows was an option I had considered, but I’d still like to be able to see outside once in a while during the day. I know I could just open the window and look out, but it’s not quite the same. I just need to feel that I’m not completely isolated up here, and being able to throw open the curtains and let the sunshine in helps.
I was burning bodies this morning and heard the sound of an engine. I peeked my head out of the body drop window and spotted the assholes in their red BMW down the alley one block over. One dumpster was already burning, and I was in the process loading up the next one, so a few zombies had shuffled back into my alley. Now the assholes know there’s still someone living in this building, but I doubt that they suspect it’s the guy they shot almost two weeks ago; unless of course one or more of them are like me. I almost leaned out the window and waved to them, but thought better of it at the last second.
The assholes watched the burning dumpster for a few minutes, and then backed out of the alley and disappeared. I think the zombies are keeping them away from the building for the time being, but I’m guessing they’re going to attempt to find a way to get in; probably in the not too distant future. I cleared out one apartment on each side of the second floor so that I could have a clear view of each street surrounding the building. The only real weak point of this building is the front entry; the zombies can’t get in, but with all that glass, it wouldn’t be very difficult for a motivated person to get through. I’m not sure if there’s any way to fix that, but I’ll have to think on it.
