Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Yesterday morning I got a call from my friend Chri…

Yesterday morning I got a call from my friend Chris, the girl who lives just above the suspension bridge and for whom I found Rusty the Cat. It seemed that her lovely apartment, the site of so many memorable parties, was effectively condemned and to be made uninhabitable by the government.

On Saturday.

It being Tuesday, you can imagine Chris’ consternation. She made a frantic search of the surrounding area, as she understandably wishes to stay in the Bitan area, but decent apartments here are snapped up almost immediately upon entering the market, so there were none to be had. We did find one apartment in my building, but Chris got out her little compass and made some measurements, and decided that the direction was violently opposed to her personal karmic resonance or something else to do with an individual’s feng-shui, just as surely as the color red (she’s more of a blue/green type, whereas I have to have red around). My apartment, however, suited it just fine.

You can see where this is going, can’t you?

Yes, indeed. Although I thought that my moving days were over with when I settled down and bought an apartment, it seems it just ain’t so. Basically, Chris will be renting my present apartment from me, and I will be renting the new place.

I called up Steven the Mover, and he’s coming over tonight. I’m a bit distressed about the sudden jolt of having to move with only a day’s notice, especially just when I had my little Water Curtain Cave all done up just the way I liked it. I just put in a ceiling fan, and was even getting used to the neighbors’ shouting matches. I don’t even hear the waterfalls anymore. On the other hand, the new place is bigger and has better views, though I’ll need to get some air conditioning for it and re-install the showerhead to accomodate my height again.

I’ll post some pictures of the new place after I get settled. If I ever do get settled again. I’m destined to do a fair bit of wandering first, it seems.

  2. Just out of curiosity are you selling your place to her, or becoming her landlord? Either way… an amazing story. You definitely have place attachment issues. Good Luck with the move.

  3. I’ll be her landlord. She’ll pay me rent and I’ll pay rent on my new place every month, plus my house payment. I’m renting, but I’m still a homeowner.
