Did I tell you my bedroom is the size of a studio apartment? Probation for the Eastern District came for a visit and I am to present myself to their office on Monday. Yesterday, I went to the crack hotel to turn in the key and found they had thrown away what little I had there and given the room to someone else. Not a big deal except a power cord for the iPad which I will have to buy again.
For anyone who wants to google the place, I’m at 505 Rockaway Parkway. The neighbors are all Jamaican, the prices in the grocery are half what they are in Chelsea, and there are lots of Caribbean treats that I’m looking forward to trying.
It takes an hour to get to the places I go in Manhattan so I’m reading 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. Not only does it pass the time, I’m getting lots of help with questions/problems I’m having with my book.
