It was too good to be true. The East Village studio I was going for is history. I just got off the phone with the staff there and HUD doesn’t consider me homeless – and therefore eligible – until I’ve lived in the SRO* for 9 months. So now I step back into the void that is HASA housing in New York. Good thing I like the crack hotel. I wonder how long Tim will let me work out of his place?
I’m at Tim’s for the storm, I’m going to the store to stock up on provisions. I’m thinking meatloaf or a nice fish stew. I certainly have enough work here to keep me occupied.
