i copied the truisms and sent them to my girlfriend at yale
she's trying to become a graphic designer
(she's an "artist who uses photography")
today i prepared proof copies of a book i'm designing and sent
them to the proofreaders
i also went to one meeting to discuss the capabilities brochure
(decisions are made/not made by committee)
this weekend i'm working on metalsmith magazine and seeing a
movie or drinking
i'm happy i don't have to move the car until sunday night
my dog is named raisa
she's a siberian husky
she was attacked by a golden retriever two weeks ago at the dog
run near yale
i didn't notice the hole in her neck until i got to kim's house
the sedative they gave her at the clinic made her
the stitches are hot pink, very early 80s
i watched "friends" last night in order to keep kim up to date
with the ross/rachel affair
i fell in love with rachel
between "friends" and "er" i moved the car
it's a volvo wagon
you can recognize it because it's missing the headlight bezels;
i don't have a picture of me doing the dishes
my kitchen is a narrow space between the bathroom and the rest
of the apartment
when i do dishes my back is to the bathroom door
when i turn around i look directly into the medicine chest
the sink has a single basin, not double like yours
(the house on peaks island has a double sink)
when i look out the window above the sink i see the southwest
corner of the empire state building
i use a sponge that's shaped like the silhouette of an apple
the foam part is green and the abrasive surface is red
i keep the detergent in an opaque pink plastic bottle
the drying rack is on the left side of the sink next to the
the counter is covered in gray flecked formica-like material,
very early 80s

dear richard, or is it charles?,
very nice text, a bit of clean air while sitting here in my wife's
office. and i'm sorry about your dog (which dog run
did it happen at?).
and i have to agree with you about rachel in the last "friends"
please do find a picture - a polaroid is fine, if it's easier.
your description is so clear in my mind that i want to compare it
to an actual photograph.
if you can, mail to: ADA WEB, attn: ben kinmont, 32 west 22nd st.
