boggs has left the building

this has been, i swear, the weirdest week in my life.

what started out as me and brad and phil going to see a lecture by the painter jsg boggs at the institute for contemporary art ended up with boggs sleeping on my sofa for nearly a week and constructing little bits of art projects out of stuff and people we met in bars. i now have forty mennonite whoopie pies, a 1952 cast iron shop vac, a folding chair, a broken 1960's vintage electrical drill, a three page contract and this portrait to show for it. oh, and a bunch of diary entries that would make hunter s. thompson feel like a sissy.
