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
