I am finally at home, my home at last. This used to be my mom's apartment, now it is my apartment. I am turning into my home, we have pulled up the carpet and got it out. She had carpet down since she moved in the late 90's, there was a mystery stain that looked like a bleach slip. What really scared me was the padding under the carpet. I remembers that padding under one of the carpets fell apart almost to powder. It was a nightmare to clean up. We have tack boards up.
So happy to get that out here. We got all of the furniture that I did not want, like a table that had seen better days and a dresser that was used since I was a baby. I hanging my stuff on the walls like my Dali
inspired melting clock
and someone for an extremely belated birthday gave me a framed Doctor Who poster of the Dalek
"To Victory" poster.
This being my house and my family's perchance to hang things, it seems that all of our walls have nails in them so we can hang things up. It is hanging up now.
In my bathroom I have the New Yorker
Magazine cover of "the View From 9th Avenue"
On my birthday I went to my storage locker and straighten it out. Sounds like a fun time, I know. I gather and took some things out that I wanted for my apartment. One of the things that I found and I forgot about was the framed poster
for The Hunt for Red October.
I thought about hanging in my bathroom, but it was too large to see it properly. I am going to hang in my bedroom.
My sister is redoing her kitchen, replacing the old cabinets, we looked at area rugs. I found one that asymmetrical pattern with various colors that I liked.
We found a runner for the hallway that had the same colors.
My apartment is shaping up.
My foot is healing well, I will have a second skin to close another wound on my foot. The first graft is healing very well, I have a long term wound boot that custom molded to foot.
One of the things I thought I would miss was the play "Disenchanted"
that was written by some of my sisters friends. It takes the Disney Princesses and takes them through South Park. The show is hosted by Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella showing their annoyance with all of those Disney movies. The guys have done a lot of off-off-off-off Broadway work and the Fringe
festival. Dennis Giacino and Fiely A Matias also worked on a show called "Asian Sings the Blues," which has one of the best songs ever. It is on the Sports Illustrated
is really "Respectable Porn." The play is currently running in New York City, it is really funny show.
It has Belle of Beauty and the Beast
has been driven insane because of all living furniture and objects in the Beast's castle. Ariel of the Little Mermaid
regrets giving her tail for human legs,
Mulan sings about not getting the guy.
The actress Lulu Picart was also Pocahantas and Princess jasmine. Even Tiana is in the show.
A little macabre news, one night I left work. There are train tracks that are not part of the subway. They use for garbage trains and cargo. I saw a train on it once in the nine years that I worked here. On the overpass that the road, I saw a bunch photographers and cameramen. They were talking about that there was nothing happening at the moment. I saw flashlights down on the train tracks.
It turned out that two bodies where found on the tracks. I thought that it was possible that homeless had been hit by one of the trains. Turns out that they were wrapped in plastic. This was not an accident, where I work there is a lot of warehouses, garages, and such. It is deserted and lonely, I am surprise that more bodies are not dump by work.
I am working on request for comic strips and such, Just getting back in the swing of these thins.
