tl;dr

I live in an apartment. Whoever is in the suite above me is getting stranger and stranger. I am assuming it is an old woman, but I've never seen this person, never seen her vehicle, nothing. Since we've moved in in fall 2007, this woman has been taking lengthy showers in the middle of the night, blaring the end credits to Seinfeld and assorted Disney movies, dropping what sounds like very heavy items on her wood floors. She waits to do laundry until 3 in the morning, drags chairs from one end of the unit to another, makes weird drill noises, and so on. All of this is pretty much daily. I mean, I move chairs and drop things, too, but definitely not as often as her.

Last night at about 10pm she started hammering. Really fast. She's been doing it intermittently all morning so far, and then running/stomping to and from the patio door, across the living room, to the den (at least, that's my layout, and I'm assuming hers is the same), where she drops stuff on the ground and hammers some more. She only has 900 square feet of space, so I have no idea what she could be constructing in her unit.

I'm not annoyed, but I'm really starting to wonder what her deal is. What do you think?

Drilling holes into my ceiling so she can spy on me? Boring old insomniac? Building a staircase to heaven? Extensive DIY renovations to our 3 year old building? Alien capsule? Serial killer stuffing dead bodies into the wall and then covering them back up?

eta: I can't just go up there by myself. What if it's some crazy person? Maybe it's not an old lady at all.
