I’ve got my ex-girlfriend over here right now babbling about roller skating upstairs on the hardwood floors. I had to tell her sorry but I don’t own a pair of rollerskates. I’d rather push around on a skateboard even if I do it badly. Apparently, I’m a “son of a bitch” too, which would not make my dear, dear mother very happy to hear hahahaha. At least that’s what I just overheard in a conversation the ex was having with her drunk momma .
Apparently I am now persona non grata in the South Coast Metro area. I’m not really very shaken up about it though. I have other, more urgent, fish to fry at the moment. As to what I did to earn “son of a bitch” status I have no idea and I don’t really care to tell you the truth. Drunk wind baggery if you ask me. Never been a big fan of drunks, even when I was one for a few years back in the nineties. Its kind of funny or rather kind of ironic that I’m so hated in that household because I have truly never been anything but nice to that woman and I even get along splendidly with her dog, a little yapping barking ingrate who I managed to somehow cultivate quite a bond with. Dogs do like me. Maybe because I am one? Topic for another day.
I’ve got lots of shit going on in my life, most of it not exactly on the great side. We are losing the house here in two days. It is getting auctioned off on March 23rd, 2011 and that is when my bubble is really going to burst. I’ve really gotten accustomed to having the run of this place, its been amazing and I will really be sad to give up my Cowshit Castle when that dreadful day finally comes. The entire house is pretty much empty right now except for mattresses without sheets and the contents of my art studio/office where I am typing this fascinating shit right here and now.
I’ve got no idea where I’m going to go. I’ve got no money to get there. All I have is my talented hands, my paintings and art supplies and my sexy self and not so sexy car. Plenty of people are sure to be thinking that if I end up homeless and in the gutter its only my deserved reward for being such a jackass. To them I offer a hearty “Fuck Off….but I do it with a smile on my face because I’m not really serious. Shit, they are probably right. I don’t really give a shit about the rights or wrongs of the whole situation. It is what it is and I’m a fighter who will never give up.
This is all just a wakeup call for me to start being a little smarter with my assets and less inclined to procrastinate and lollygag my way through life. Time to pump a little Ouspensnky urgency into my everyday life and frankly I welcome the challenge. Stay tuned for updates on the living situation. Whether you, constant reader, are a friend or foe, a hater or a supporter, you’ll be anxious to hear the outcomes of this somewhat urgent situation. LOL.
I’ve kinda gotta run right now for a couple of reasons. My sister Theresa has commissioned me to do a painting of a baby giraffe for her daughters room in their new house in Norco. I agreed to do it for the insane price of $100. So I’ve gotta knock that out here tonight. Not only that my friend Ian McCall is in New Jersey right now for an audition/tryout for Season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter and I want to call him up and find out how that is going. Anyways thanks for reading and I welcome any comments or suggestions, constructive or venom laced it matters not.
Oh yeah one last thing. We went to mediation in Los Angeles last Wednesday for the case involving the death of my sister Natalie while in custody of the Riverside Sheriff’s Department on Valentines Day in 2009. I have nothing to report as far as results, conclusions, new information etc however. This time it was much ado about nothing as all we did was stand outside the mediators palatial estate in Century City while he met with representatives of the County of Riverside and our attorney, the capable and effervescent Richard P. Herman. Rather disappointing, especially for my poor mother, who seemed crestfallen at the lack of new information regarding the exact circumstances of my sisters passing. Stay tuned for further updates on this sad tale as well.
All is not misery and strife however! Be sure of that. I skated a good 35 miles last week which felt great and that’s always a good thing right? Talk to you people later.
P.S. Apparently my real father, Maurice Lloyd is very sick right now and in hospital. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family in Vancouver. Get well soon MO!
