This Olde House

Welcome to my humble abode. I just moved into this house about 10 days ago. My roommate is a few years younger than me, a guy from my hometown and fellow UTM alum.
Built in 1925, this stone masonry house has a full basement which is curiously sealed off at the moment. It also has a 2nd story and a small attic. Last week I learned that there is an old lady living up there. My roommate, James, says he doesn't know much about her other than she works for Vanderbilt University at night and sleeps all day. Perhaps she is a vampire librarian? The only way you know someone is up there is when she shuffles her feet across the floor above my room early in the morning. This sounds like a job for The Bloodhound Gang! Not to be confused with that band of questionable lyrics and behavior.

The house definitely has character especially since it was built during the "Roaring Twenties". How eerie! That's weird that there is an old lady living in the attic. Is she a Emily Dickinson type? I was going to ask if I could come visit sometime and see your new digs, but now I am having second thoughts. No, actually I really would like to see the house. Are you up for giving tours?

TBFly: Tours, yes, although due to the age and delicate condition of the house and it's contents we do not allow flash photography. Violators will be prosecuted to the highest extent of the law. Oh, and there's a $5 fee. wipe yor feet!
