I had no idea
8 – 28 February 2013
Put it down there. We need to prise it off. That whole thing needs to come off. We gotta make it from scratch. Post and lintel. If you use this end it works better. Yeah we’re gonna make you a ghetto-shelter and forge you a life. Forge me a life. Keep it lit. I have no idea what it’s for but it has to be done. It’s just a job, don’t worry about it. Who gives a shit anyway? Did you bring that black plastic stuff? Stretch it out and try not to let it touch itself. You got any cigarettes? Pass me that drill. Yeah we’ve a few days left to finish it.
