Just a quick toot.
I only have a few minutes of online access.
Just to let ya'll know that I'm getting settled into my new digs. I have food for a coupla weeks and all I need, really, is furniture. I have a rickety chair and an air mattress and that's it. Other than that, I'm warm and well-fed so I'm already luckier than some. However, if someone sees free furniture from in or near Hudson (under the Metrowest section) being offered on Worcester or Boston Craigslist, kindly forward me the ad so I'll see it next time I log on?
Internet access through the local library will be sporadic, at best, since town budget cuts shorten their hours more and more every year. So that's why I have no access to speak of.
My budget until the end of June, when I'll have to come up with half of the last month's rent (instead of the full $600) will be strained, so getting 'net access, phone service and luxuries such as cable/satellite will remain a wistful dream. So, without the "distraction" of the internet and television, I've been spending all w/e proofing American Zen from start to finish and ironing out even more bugs.
I cannot fucking believe a lit agent hasn't grabbed it, yet.
Anyway, this will be it for a while. I just thought a new post will be more visible than burying this in the comment section of an old thread. I'll be posting pictures of my place next time I come on. It ain't much but it's mine. Sort of. My landlord's a bend-over-backwards kinda guy and he and the realtor really worked hard to get me in there. We all had something at stake and were looking out for ourselves but somehow we all helped eachother out and everyone's happy. He took my $600 deposit last Friday with an air of great relief.
So I'll see ya'll later.
