November Urban Camping Spots

The breakdown of November urban camping spots was as follows:

4 nights at house of classmate, Leon, and 2 nights at house of classmate, Mei; 1 night at Bill's house, 7 nights working and camping at my studio, 16 nights at Carol's house (2 weeks she was traveling in Canada and the States, the other days were just 'staying over').

Or Is This Me?

My friend, Sherry, sent me a link to the definition of "urban camping" at Urban Dictionary. She said, "I thought you would find this funny."

1. A form of penance. What one generally does after terminating a long-term relationship in their late twenties or early thirties.

Urban camping involves the acquisition of a small apartment that is sparsely equipped with furniture.

In general, an urban camper should be equipped with no more than, a coffee machine, a juice press, a cot or yoga mat and a radio.

The period of urban camping shall persist until the camper no longer feels guilty about the circumstances of the previous relationship and begins to acquire material possessions for the purposes of impressing others.

2. The state of furnishing of a downtown apartment that causes an Aravopoulos to say "I love what you haven't done with the place".

I was over at Hector's last night and he still doesn't have any furniture. How long is this urban camping phase gonna last?

And Is This Me?

My friend, Hikmet, sent me the Leonard Cohen lyrics to Winter Lady. He said, "Doesn't this song talk about you just a bit?"

Traveling lady stay awhile
Until the night is over
I'm just a station on your way
I know I am not your lover.

Well, I lived with a child of snow
When I was a soldier
And I fought every man for her
Until the nights grew colder.

She used to wear her hair like you
Except when she was sleeping
And then she'd weave it on a loom
Of smoke and gold and breathing.

And why are you so quiet now
Standing there in the doorway?
You chose your journey long before
You came upon this highway.

Traveling lady stay awhile
Until the night is over
I'm just a station on your way
I know I am not your lover.
