Fresh Dust

Today the pounding began anew. It's time to move. No doubt about it. I can't endure another hour of hammering. I know there are children in other countries that don't have hammers and that would love to have a house and a hammer in the morning and in the evening and all over this land... but when the dust drips on my Mac, I draws me a line.

We are moving out. That's all there is to it. Down the street, into a box, youth hostel, dumpster... whatever. Just out. This landlord has been ridiculous. There has been a stop work order on our building for the past month and we've had peace but the eye of the noise and debris storm has past and I am once again awakened to the buzz saw and the gentle melodies of Mexican mariachi music.

It must end.

Tough living there. Hope the dust settles and something good comes out of it.

By the way, did you see this news about a Rice music grad student who apparently committed suicide a few days ago? Wondered if you might have known her.

I can't tell by this post if you're just expressing frustration or actually planning on moving to a new place.
