expiation / expatriation

February 4th, 2009

february is Mud Mud month, did you know?
not just because it was originally “februarius mensis” which any latinate would be grossed out by, but also:

“The last month of the ancient (pre-450 B.C.E.) Roman calendar, so named in reference to the Roman feast of purification, held on the ides of the month. In Britain, replaced O.E. solmona├░ “mud month.”

so far this month has been about expiation and trial by fire

we have paid for and signed the lease for an apartment we were supposed to move into feb 1

for some constantly inexplicable reason we have not gotten the keys or permission to move in yet

its like we are on punked or something, someone just testing to see how long it takes before we go on murderous rampages

chinatown will not loose its grip on our throats

we must pay for our tresspasses there

ben’s here and staying with us and this makes us less miserable

he brought gifts

to unwrap

we used the extra uhaul time to pickup free shit from craigslist

Ridge Street gave us a couch

west side gave us a new fancy bed

all for free
maybe the world does not want us to jump off a bridge

maybe we will paint our future with large strokes

this morning, and no keys in sight still

rat in a cage

lookin sharp here at Deitch Projects

wheatpaste for breakfast

ladders with side of ladders

i am going to get a ladder and crawl in the fourth floor window of our new place and move in like that in about 5 minutes if these fuckfaces dont call me back
