"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish

Hi Folks,

So, Friday I got to pick up the bike trailer cargo at Benji's house and rode it home. There has been this 7 foot tall, iron, shelfs unit, about 1 1/2 ft x 1 1/2ft in the trash area. I figured that I could use it at the holiday flea market. But to get the shelves, I had to move a vacuum cleaner and when I did the handle came off and punched me in my nose. Very hard! No blood but I am hurting still!

In the morning, I got everything that was going to the flea market, and my bike, and the trailer, outside near the shelves. I put everything on the trailer except the shelves was longer than the trailer and so I had to get my rollerskates so they could carry the weight and roll. This was cute, but it didn't actually work. I ended up riding my bike (actually, walking and pushing it about half of the trip) and letting the metal grind all the way between my apartment and Spontaneous Celebrations. Grrrr. And made a really loud noise but luckily it did not leave a mark.

The sale was great, and at the end of the night I packed up some of the stuff that was not getting sold. It was kind of pain because I was tired and the stuff kept falling off the trailer. I got home though, and then I realized I was not wearing a helmet! What the fuck!? I went to bed, so tired, with my nose still hurting, and I hoped they had my helmut at the space.

Woke up on Sunday, rode the bike and trailer with my second helmet, got to the sale, and realized I had forgotten my eyeglasses as well as the phone. So weird! WTF. Though, I found my helmet there!

So today, which is Monday, I found out that had closed on 11/28/2016. I had to freak out, and call people to help me put it back together again. (Thank you Ali!!!) WTF. And my nose still hurts.

"It is what it is..." I seem to remember this quote coming from my grandmother, Nana. I might be wrong about her, but is kind of nice to be thinking of her. I thought it would be 'the quote' for a class I am doing at Emerson. But maybe WTF is the quote.

I don't know how many times something is going to go wrong... I really don't.

Perhaps it'll change because Allix Mortis is going to model on Sunday the 11th Dr. Sketchy's. Let's hope so!
this is one.

TWO Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School A MONTH !!!

2nd Sunday : 2:30-5:30 : Great Scott 1222 Commonwealth Ave. Allston, Massachusetts 02134. Right at the intersection of Harvard Ave and Commonwealth Ave. And the T. 18+; $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)

4th Monday : 7:00-9:00 : ONCE Somerville 156 Highland Ave, Somerville, Massachusetts 02143 $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)

Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School is the life drawing session you dreamed of in your deviously creative art school head. Hot models with crazy costumes, sometimes genderbending antics, poses that keep your interest for hours, nice folks around you, drinks, and it's cheap. The models talk and keep you entertained, there's good music, you could win prizes for good and bad art! You don't have to be a good artist, or someone who draws everyday. Dr. Sketchy's is a great place to start back up with your practice, or to try to pick up a new creative outlet.

We start with short poses to get you warmed up and then move on to longer and longer poses, but that's about where the traditional life drawing session stops...
