Aw HELL YEAH! It's temporary, but I hope to extend it as long as possible. Which will probably be exactly until it gets freezing cold. But some folks could get lucky and I could stay here a year. (Well see. I REALLY have NO idea!)
Someone was shockingly correct, and has some mighty good sources, themselves. However, I do have a new phone line, and that one may not be tapped, yet. [Some of it is jibber-jabber...but this was a message to ZD, fo sho. And they were right with the premise.]
Anonymous said...I'm a Third Cousin, Thrice Removed, from the said Gentleeman, my Beloved Cousin David, of the Shannons of Nordern IREland. I say IREland on purpose now, because everyone has some IRE, don't we, lads? Or else we'd not have come to this God FORSAKEN country, just because we didn't have enough tators. What kinder nonsense is that? But now, our BELOVED COUSIN David, thinks he's BLACK IRISH IN A LITERAL SENSE, which is NOT TRUE. He do'nt have a SPOT of black blood in'em, and so, DAVID, come home to us, your family. Never mind these Rodericks, I always told yer that clan was NO GOOD 'tal. September 15, 2007 3:31 AM
I was on a plane the day after that, I think. And although I kinda have to be here, for now, whether I want to, or not (cause of mi familia) -- how long I decide to stay here truly remains to be seen. As some of you may know, from this past week's worth of blogging, the geographic relocation has not diminished my disdain for what is happening in that biohazard-karma filled building on Spring Street. (Viagraosa and LA Shitty Council.)
But here is what might keep me here in Cleveland, my hometown: ZD's NEW blog spot...
FREE WI-FI, Y'ALL!!! I'm living like a king. It's the GOOD LIFE, I could have had, if I wasn't who I am, but the way everyone else I ever met WISHES I could be.
But, Cleveland was never exciting enough for me. I always kinda need to be in a City the size of NYC or LA to be comfortable.
But today, I saw some deer running down my street. (Too much development, even here, obviously.) I saw a lady riding a horse, in the distance. And five minutes the other direction are all the new malls, shopping centers and fantastic restaurants. (Cleveland, for some reason has tons of fine dining?) And everyone is so happy I am here, for however long...everyone wants to TAKE me to those fine restaurants. (Yeah, yeah!) And Genesis is here tomorrow. And everything is so close and easy for the most part.
Trees, parks, grass...the weather is great, and trust me -- that makes ALL the difference to ZD...so talk to me when the temperature drops below 30 degrees.
So now that the cat is out of the bag, maybe I'll do some filming at the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame. (ZD was kicked out exactly six years ago this month. Time to return to the scene of the crime for Mayor Sam readers.)
I used to HATE coming back to Cleveland. I would get miserably depressed being here. (Visiting from NYC, LA, Houston, DC.) And I know, I wouldn't be able to be happy here now, if it wasn't for the past year and a half I just spent in Los Angeles, immersed in the community -- meeting all the new people I have met in that time (and the emails and cell phone conversations remain the same).
And I like the three hour time difference, cause when I'm up at 11pm/12m/1a, I can still talk to everyone in LA! And I can blog until 12noon, and it's only 9am in LA!
So Sam, all I can say, is I hope the weather stays nice for a while. YEAH, it's killin' me that Garshady & Company, and Villaraigosa & Cahootans, and all those crybaby political operatives will be poppin' champagne corks -- and sliding all the shady stuff on the agenda...but I think this balance I have finally achieved will help me come back to LA -- WAY BETTER. In a month? A year? Who knows...maybe never?
But don't get to happy. You think I'm walking away from the ZD "fame zone"? Hell Naw! I DO miss LA and DO wanna return soon. Just not as soon as I thought.
P.S. I really do miss everyone inside those council chambers. Just kidding! The only person I wanna give a shout-out to is Officer Morris -- and maaaaaaaaaaaybe Dion O'Connell. The rest of you: Huh...huh...huh..I don't know WHO would be happier if we were lucky enough to never see each other again. But unfortunatley, I think we were put in each other's lives to torture each other. But if we're both good -- and try to change our karma like Bill Murray in Groundhog's Day...maybe the dream can come true for both of us! (But knowing you shady f*cks, you'll probably end up pissing me off and sending me back on plane, waaaaaaay too soon.)
