So I’ve run across a spell of good luck since yesterday morning. I found a place to stay until I leave and this place happens to belong to an editor for a publishing house (ie she let me go on about my novel for ages and had some interesting input) AND she makes a mean Manhattan(1).
I met my host at my favourite dive bar, The Heavy Anchor(2), which had a clothing swap a few weeks ago and Jodi (one of the owners of The Anchor) offered me to look through the left over clothes which ended up being a real blessing because I got to upgrade some of my rags and obtain some much needed accessories such as a scarf, blanket, and sleeping pants (women’s sleeping pants but they’re warm and comfortable none the less).
Overall morale boosted from 4.5/10 to 8/10.

I finished Notes of a Dirty Old Man yesterday and plan to write something about it this week. Now that I have a quite place to work, I may even get some drawing done too. Interview transcript with Osiris Green from Wreck the System will come next.
My favourite cocktail which consists of 2 parts whiskey, 1 part sweet vermouth, a dash of bitters, a maraschino cherry, and orange zest. I have no idea what recipe she used, but it was very fine.
The Heavy Anchor is a south city bar in st louis. If you’re ever in the area, stop in and say “hi” to Jodi or Josh for me.
