This is what happens when you blog about moving


ransacked

Actually, I don't think the people who broke into my old house read blogs. Or anything else for that matter.

This week, after having to rent a car during the move because my van overheated and died with me and the dogs trapped inside, I spent most of the week searching for lost paychecks, arguing with banks and trying to find the postman.

Today I went back to Mississippi to get the rest of my stuff and found that someone had broken in and ransacked the place. I'd left behind mostly papers and photos and photo negatives, along with some books, etc. Some of it was stacked, some boxed, some not. Nevermind. It was all gone through, the couch taken apart, the envelopes of photos and negatives strewn across the floor, etc.

So, in a year in Mississippi, the following things have happened to me:
1. My heart stopped working
2. My leg was slashed open on a post office door.
3. My hard drive crashed.
4. My computer conked out a second time after $1000 in repairs.
5. My car died.
6. My house was broken into and my personal items fingered by strangers.

And those are just the highlights.

Goodbye, Mississippi!!!

Were you ever robbed in New York? And people think no one does anything but drink and rope hogs in the south.... Here's to a new beginning in NOLA.

Actually, I was never robbed in New York. And I rarely locked my door. And I lived in the East Village, pre-gentrification. But there's less for people to do in Hattiesburg than in NYC, so I guess they can't help but trash a place when they see someone has moved out.
