Subject: BS: Mrrzy is living in interesting times...
From: Mrrzy
Date: 07 Apr 12 - 02:42 PM

Well, back in January, as some of you know, my pub closed.

Then, my car died. I didn't complain here because it was my fault for not sliding some oil to her when she needed it (musical reference alert). Yes, I actually killed a corolla through neglect.

Then our landlady told us to declutter or be evicted, so we did.

But, she's evicting us anyway. We need a place by the end of the month. Single parent, twin teenagers just finishing their junior (3rd) year of high school, and 2 small cats. Just as well I don't believe in curses.

Are we having fun yet?

Movin day, movin day
Pick your (somethings) off the floor
(something something) going out the door
Cause it's movin day
Pack up all your grips and get away
If you spent every cent you can live out in a tent
It's mooooooovin day.

What about taking a very short lease on a small apartment, 6 months, moving now, and using those 6 months to find something better?

The car I looked at failed the mechanic's audition. The other one I was looking at got sold while I was looking at the one that flunked.

Life goes on, it happens every day
So 'preciate what you got before it's taken away
Life will hit you when you're unprepared
So be grateful and take all that you can while you're there
Take that frown off your head
You're a long time dead (?)
Life goes on and on and on

Yeah, well, on the other hand, you might only be "dead" for a second or two. All we ever know consciously is being alive, and that might continue after what we call "death". We won't know till we get there.

One would think that Mrrzy could at least make it to an internet cafe, if they still exist. Meanwhile there are always these verses from The Pity the Downtrodden Landlord Songbook to muse over:

Chorus:

I'm bound for that beautiful city,
My Lord has prepared for His own;
Where all the redeemed of all ages
Sing "glory" around the white throne;
Sometimes I grow homesick for heaven,
And the glories I there shall behold:
What a joy that will be when my Savior I see,
In that beautiful city of gold.

We'll never pay rent for our mansion,
The taxes will never come due;
Our garments will never grow threadbare,
But always be fadeless and new;
We'll never be hungry nor thirsty,
Nor languish in poverty there,
For all the rich bounties of heaven
His sanctified children will share.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

That's what I was thinking, too, maeve. In the midst of moving, esp. with kids and in dire straits, getting to any kind of internet access is probably way down on the list of priorities.

I hope she has found some accommodation.

Aargh. Thanks, and yes, I am bad at doing anything other than car- and apt-shop when i do get online...

So, my month's notice is halfway over, no sign of an apt yet, and I am also still looking for a lawyer as I don't think you can really evict peopple for things that were true when you renewed the lease. On verra.

And I am still in a rental car, which I do NOT plan on living in!

I spate in me fist and I picked up me stick
And up the coach road like a deer I did trip
I cared not for bailiff, landlord, or Old Nick
And I sang like the lark in the morning...

Words and music by Guy Clark

Recorded on Old No. 1, SH-C-1030

La Freeway

Pack up all your dishes,
Make note of all good wishes,
Say good-bye to the landlord for me,
Son-of-a-bitches always bore me;
Throw out them LA papers,
Moldy bags of vanilla wafers,
Adios to all this concrete,
Gonna get me some dirt road back street.

Chorus:

If I can just get off of this LA Freeway,
Without gettin' killed or caught,
I'll be down the road in a cloud of smoke
To some land I ain't bought, bought, bought!

Looking for a lawyer? Isn't there a not-for-profit housing agency in your region? Something like that?

I don't mean a body that rents housing, I mean an agency that keeps an eye on landlords and gives advice.

We, our three kids, six cats, one dog, and two birds lived in a motel room for three months as we waited for the place we were going to rent to become vacant/lease ran out. It was an adventure, but doable. Maybe it would work for you as a stop-gap measure?

there is a possible 6-months lease on a small apt available now BUT I have finally actually gotten to talk to a lawyer and she can't evict me just by sending me a letter, she has to take me to court, and until then there is really nothing she can do if I stay here... so I am worrying more now about the car, and will continue to fight the eviction. If we can stay another year, hostile landlord or not, the boys will graduate and I can go live with my mom who will need me by then, is the plan.

I am relieved about the court thing - since she has filed no papers, I have more time than I thought. I was under the impression that she could just show up with bailiffs and they would toss all my furniture out into the street...

So back to trying to buy a car!

I think the analogy I was not thinking of was Herding cats. But spitting on a fish sounds about right too!

Well. A reprieve. Good. I thought at the beginning it sounded like very short notice to evict you, but I don't know much about these laws here, let alone elsewhere.

Also, I wondered if she had told you to declutter because she knew she was going to try to get you out and was afraid you would be one of those tenants who left a lot of stuff behind for her to deal with.

Whatever paths you choose, I hope you will keep us informed.
