What’s That Smell?

Whenever I bake something or cook something on slow roast for a couple of hours Cricket loses her damn mind… she can smell it but she can’t see it. She goes over by the oven and whines and sometimes she’ll bark.



I Got Life – Nina Simone vs. Everyday – Kim English


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Woke up this clear blue morning and I am feeling good. Rather than whining about what I don’t have, look at all I do have: my health, my empathy, my compassion, my books, my education, my capacity to love. Also, the two great loves of my life are cuddled up in bed with me right now.

I Got Life

Ain’t got no mother, ain’t got no culture
Ain’t got no friends, ain’t got no schooling
Ain’t got no love, ain’t got no name
Ain’t got no ticket, ain’t got no token
Ain’t got no God

Then what have I got
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what have I got
Nobody can take away

Got my hair, got my head
Got my brains, got my ears
Got my eyes, got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile

I got my tongue, got my chin
Got my neck, got my boobs
Got my heart, got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, got my hands
Got my fingers, got my legs
Got my feet, got my toes
Got my liver, got my blood

I’ve got life
I’ve got my freedom
I’ve got life


When I look around I cannot take for granted
Things given to me the favor I’ve been handed
All the miracles and wonders I have witnessed
I do not guess – I know that I am truly blessed

I must keep the faith, no matter what I’m seeing
‘Cuz that’s the key unlocking or receiving
The impossible taking place in my life
The greatest steps ascending through those higher heights

I got my health, I got my strength, I’m in my right mind
I still have breath so I got hope that love is on my side
And where I go I know I need not look behind me
He keeps me safe and this is something he does everyday

Fort Lauderdale’s Finest Flea Market


, , , , , , , , , , , ,


The Swap Shop Flea Market on Sunrise. I have come to realize that the success you have at this flea market depends mostly on your energy level, having the willingness to dig in and pick through piles of mainly junk, and then having the negotiation skills to barter with those sharks (Haitian and Jamaican women). *btw, old Haitian women do not like to have their pictures taken, at all











I don’t exactly know what these people were selling or doing, but it was real busy and they were whispering and it looked shady, so I went over there and took their picture, and I said Aha, I got you!














My lone purchase, a $2 Powerpuff girl for Squeak, well this and a cold Coco Frio (sadly still tasted like nasty salty coconut water)

Food Comps From the Hard Rock Casino


, , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m leaving for Miami, so I had to use up all of my food comps at the Hard Rock… I have rotisserie chicken, salisbury steak, penne pasta, a roasted pork Cuban, a barbecue beef sandwich with macaroni and cheese on it, a BBQ chicken pizza and my favorite macaroni and cheese balls with cheese sauce.







As for desserts, a chocolate cupcake, vanilla cupcake, butterscotch cupcake, black and white brownie, apple crumb cake, biscotti, cookies and cream whoopie pie and a caramel macchiato whoopie pie.




I’m Leaving, again


, , , , , , , , , , , ,


I have made some great friends in St. Petersburg, and Tampa, and Clearwater, and Largo, and Pinellas Park, and Bradenton, and all around the area. But I have made great friends in other places I’ve lived as well (love you Ashley and Kelli) and it appears I can only outrun my unhappiness for a short time. A gypsy I am, and a gypsy I’ll be. I always think I’ll be happier somewhere else, things will be better, I will find someone to love me. I know this is true because stupid, stupid me has kind of fallen in love with 2 different guys I only know (or thought I knew) from the internet…how you doin’, Mr. C and Mr. O? I so very much want that knight in shining armor, that winning lottery ticket, that beautiful baby, that man who looks at me like maybe I am magic. I applied for jobs in Atlanta and Miami, and Miami called first, so I’m headed south, running away from my mental health, trying to be happy again, if only for a while.






Tom of Finland & VHS porn

The gay-owned and themed motel I stayed in last weekend in Dania Beach had Tom of Finland prints on the walls and VCR/VHS porn tapes in the laundry room.





Flea Market Funday


, , , , , , , , , , ,


I always catch deals, know when things are half price, get the hookup. It’s almost like stealing, having my skill set at the Swap Shop, the biggest flea market in the world, in Broward County.

3 12-foot retractable leashes for the dogs, a Tinker Bell collar and a bulldog coffeee mug, all from Petsmart, $1 each, $5 total. The leashes still had the clearance price of $15.27 each on them.

Vitamins, Fish Oil, Fiber, Acai Berry, Men’s and Energy dietary supplements, 2 for $1, $5 total, vitamins and fiber for months!

*the sketchy guy who sold me the Petsmart stuff told me he dug it out of their dumpster, and all of the vitamins were expired, but I’m cool with that




Introducing Pets


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

My friend Melissa has a one-legged Australian Shepherd named Maverick and a deaf cat named Romeo, who’s kind of a creeper. One night last week we decided to introduce our babies to each other. Maverick did bark a little as we got near, but only because he was excited, as he is a GOOD dog. He kind of rushed up to sniff Cricket, who doesn’t like to be crowded, so she growled and lunged for his face. I jerked her back just in time, because if they fought Maverick would probably kick her ass, three legs or not. My baby Squeak was so good, she and Maverick ran around Melissa’s apartment and played and had a good time. She tried to befriend Romeo, by laying down on her stomach and being submissive, but was ignored. Squeak in no way tried to attack Romeo, in fact she liked him. Curious then that when Cricket and Squeak are out on a walk they go crazy when they see a cat, Cricket will literally choke herself straining on the leash to try and get at it. Since Cricket killed a cat in 2012 and they are her enemies, I had to hold her the entire time, not easy with her weighing 33 pounds and shaking and struggling and whining to get to Romeo. I think it’s the wolf and pitbull in Cricket that makes her act that way.





A Little Stinker


, , , , , , , , , , , ,


I’m the taxi cab driver for what I will call a precocious 4 year old. In addition to taking ALL the selfies of himself with my phone, devouring a Happy Meal, ice cream sundae and orange juice, he tried to run away from me out into the parking lot. Unfortunately he seems to have gone to the bathroom at some point today and not wiped himself properly. He definitely is a little stinky, but he will stay that way, I’m not changing him or nothing… ain’t nobody got time for that!
