Monday, A nude Day, A nude Life, Like being born again...Hello Everyone! UGH! The past couple of weeks
my LA Times has been delivered Here, There, Everywhere otter than Here. They used to deliver it to the Neighbor down the drive
way, Every Sunday like Clock Work 4am. It was there then something went Hay Wire maybe the Delivery person discovered Bath Salts.
For the last 3 Weeks my paper has gone where no paper should have to go somewhere else. I could just imagine where probably behind
211 South Milpas next to the bucket, Read and Wipe. Well someone is enjoying it, SNOT me. That's all that's important I guess.
Speaking of Time, this Daylight Savings Horse Manure is not working out very well for me. First of all Pooh Bear has gone senile
and he Sleeps all Day and Parties all night, he only agrees to let me sleep a couple hours if I give him my left arm to cuddle, I
can only sleep on my right side. If I don't give up my arm he howls until I do. I don't sleep much anymore. On Saturday night I
stood with the door wide open and lectured him about my need for sleep. I know the Neighbors were listening and hopefully I will
be committed sometime next week so I can get some much needed sleep. By the Time I got to sleep Sunday Morning it was time to get
up and change the clocks. I fell out for what seemed like 20 minutes I must have moved my Arm because Pooh Bear made a little
noise then my phone began to ring. It's times like these I realize I'm no longer Homicidal. If I was I would have answered the
phone, found out whom was calling me, gone to their house, killed them and took their left arm with me.
After I shut the phone off by ripping the cord out of the wall and tossing it out in the yard I fell out again to a series of
weird dreams the kind you have when you're sleeping but not sleeping soundly, I usually like these dreams like living in Twin
Peaks. But these dreams are a little different. These are the Chicago Bus Station dreams I used to have as a runaway kid, "Please
deposit another .25 Cents for 15 minutes of WGN." Anyone else ever sleep in a bus station chair in front of those .25 Cents for 15
minute TV Sets? You fall asleep and when you wake up you're lucky if you still got your underwear on everything else is gone. It's
Morning I slept for a couple hours, the Sun is out Pooh Bear is sleeping soundly for the next 15 hours, my replacement LA Times is
due in 90 minutes, and the coffee is done on the other side of the room. I got up earlier to get a cup, left it next to the coffee
pot walked back to my chair without my coffee and sat back down this is the way my brain works when I don't get much sleep.
On Saturday evening I heard one of those Combative Drunk calls I'm not sure how the police deal with Combative Drunks anymore
because I don't drink, but I'm pretty sure a Taser is involved. When I was a Combative Drunk it was a good Butt Kicking and Waffle
Face. The next morning was HELL because of the fighting from the night before I was always afraid to open my eyes and wouldn't do
so until I began to remember what had happened the night, or drunk before. Alcohol was my Beast Fiend, because that is what I
would turn into after a few drinks. Sober I had the Homicidal/Suicidal thoughts. The depression feeling of being worthless Drunk I
turned into the raging maniac only a Mother could Love. The last time I went to County Jail was Easter Sunday 1999; I went over to
Trader Joes and spent a couple hundred dollars on 13 bottles of wine. I decided to switch over to wine because everything else
wasn't working for me. My girlfriend came over drank a bottle and escaped. I think I drank 11 Bottles before I went across the
street to Circle K and raided the beer cooler. It wasn't long after that I was on my way to the Beautiful Mansion on the Hill;
The Santa Barbara County Jail. I was tied up like a pretzel on the back seat of the police car there were two cops in the front
seat one of them turned to me and said, "When we get to jail you're going to need to wash your eyes out, we had to pepper spray
you." The weirdest thing my eyes were not burning at all and I was breathing fine even thou I have Asthma. That is what alcohol
did for me No Pain till the Next Day. When I came to the next day my knee hurt like pure HELL, I found out later that I said the
wrong thing to a jail guard. The silver lining that saved my hide was that the police were so busy tying me up they forgot to
read me my rights. I got out of just about everything except for the Warrants I had. I had Warrants for a prior drunk where I
attacked buildings downtown jumping thru and breaking windows about $1400.00 worth. I had a warrant for Failure to Appear; one
would think no one would want me to Appear anywhere. I was only in jail for a couple days because I raised HELL about not getting
my rights read to me but I had to pay restitution for all the windows I broke and there were restraining orders to stay away from
several buildings downtown. A normal person would have been Horrified if they did something like this. I wasn't; not at all this
was just one of my drunks, just another normal day in my own private HELL.
When I got home my door was wide open there were cigarette butts and burns all over the carpet, empty liquor containers
everywhere, a ham in the sink with every bug you could imagine munching on it. I thought I was having DT's so I went to the liquor
store and got a pint. My cats were gone probably hiding, when I sobered up a few years later I promised both of my cats that I
would give them a good life I never said anything about my left arm.
Waffle Face was caused by the old cages that separated the front seat from the back in a police car. For no apparent reason the
police car would stop pretty much on a dime at high speeds and if someone was hand cuffed in the back seat there was really no way
to stop their face from getting smooshed into the cage, aka Waffle Face.
I'm sure some of you get sick reading about my Old Drunken Experiences, but every time I turn on a Scanner I hear them over and
over again involving other Combative Drunkards like the one on Saturday Night. I am sure that fella came to on Sunday Morning and
Wondered where in the HELL he was, or maybe he didn't wake up at all, maybe he's Dead. One of the first things I heard Sunday
Morning was about a car found that had crashed the night before spilling its fluids all over the street on the East Side. I heard
a fireman say that the vehicle hit his car so maybe there was a high speed chase. One Police Officer said the vehicle was at Nopal
and Quarantina, another said it was at Montecito and Calle Cesar Chavez; the dispatcher said the vehicle was at Calle Cesar Chavez
and Gutierrez. It sounds like Daylight Savings Time does not agree with them either. I heard another officer say that he was going
to contact the registered owner of the vehicle in the 1600 Block of Garden. I don't know if that call had anything to do with the
crashed vehicle or the registered owner was driving the vehicle, it could have been stolen. However I have no doubt in my mind
that alcohol somehow played a part in the crime. Alcohol; the gift that keeps on giving, it's cheap but costs the Taxpayers a HELL
of a lot of money and turns peoples brains to Mush. I just heard a Death Notification Call go out that is when the Police show up
at your door to inform you a loved one is dead, I have no idea how this person passed away.
