Exit Strategy, or the 2009 Benedict Stimulus Package


It seems that mr. bush isn’t the only one pondering exit strategy’s in these early days of 2009.  When we arrived back in London after a luxurious couple of weeks in the states visiting friends and family we landed to find out that Pj’s full-time job had fallen through and that Oddbins has terminated most of their part-time contracts.  With our visa’s expiring in about 2 weeks time we needed to make some quick decisions about what in the world the benedict’s would do with their lives…besides planning trips to champagne and eastern europe.  we had just been mopped up in the growing recession of ’09.

So…we’re gonna do what any self-respecting suburban, middle-class, over-educated liberal arts person would do.  Move back in with our parents and splash it out as a time for some personal, creative retrospection.   

Bruce is going to record the next shorter catechism cd that the masses have begun hammering for.  That elusive “2nd” album.  I just hope that the public is forgiving.  It’s been almost three years since vol. 1 came out.

Pj is going to continue to develop both her butoh movements and phenomenological embodiment vocabulary.  

Across partisan lines, we are continuing to work on our 2009 stimulus package, which include’s large injections of cash from Visa and the state of virginia.   If the country is going a few more trillion in debt, than a couple thousand more in the student loan coffers can’t hurt too much. 

So…if anyone is traveling through Virginia in the next couple of months.  give us a ring.  we’ll be around.   Murking about vineyards in Mount Crawford and Cafe Caturra’s in Midlothian.

  1. I am so looking forward to some good strong help around the farm and in the vineyard. Now that Bruce has all of these experience and knowledge on the wine end of the business don’t you think he needs to find out more where all of these good spirits come from?

  2. Bruce & PJ,

    Sorry to hear about the sudden change of plans, but sounds like this will be a good time for family and reflection – not to mention that I’d be stoked to listen to a new catechism CD.
