Once again, we begin anutter week in Santa Barbara where nothing bad ever happens - Monday- Monday.
Some people got every excuse in the world to drink. It's one thing to drink, drink, get drunk, knock yourself out just keep the friggin' excuses to your elves. That's who you're gonna be talking to when all your friends leave, elves. I always had it worse than everyone else in the history of the WORLD. I mean if you were me you would drink too. Top the STORY, I always won at that, because I had the biggest mouth. It has taken a few years off the drink to see all those excuses don't matter not one bit.
The poison of alcohol will be more than happy to take over your life, if you let it. Eventually it will kill you, but first it will make a horrible mess. You will lose jobs, people, homes, and vehicles. Well you might even kill one or two people. You won't think it's your fault it was just an accident They Were in the Wrong place at the WRONG time. Most alcoholics never wake up. They die of the disease, or kill someone else and go to prison. Some live to be old and grey. If they do they usually end up alone because no one wants to put up with their abuse. WAKE UP! WAKE UP! WAKE UP! GET OFF THE BOOZE IT'S A NIGHTMARE!
It's worth a try, because if the person I wrote this for reads it they will know it's directed at them. It's really for anyone, but I'm thinking of you. YOU know who YOU are - got everything in the WORLD going for YOU. You know what they say you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink it. But I bet if it was booze instead of water he'd lap it up. There is nothing wrong with drinking booze unless you cannot control it, cannot stop at one, drink and drive, break the law when you drink, get into fights, lose jobs, etc. , etc., etc. So what, you had a scrap childhood, so what. Right now is all that matters. I could go on and on.
So there's twenty something more shoplifting days till Christmas. I'm SNOT buying much nor am I going to steal, but I bet people do just to make ends meet. They don't want to disappoint the kids; they want to give them things they never had when they were young. Where I come from when I was younger people would buy from hijackers who ripped off trucks. One year for Christmas after I moved here, I got all kinds of expensive gifts. I didn't know they were hot until I took a jacket back because it was too small. Next thing ya know I'm being told the jacket is hot, came off a hijacked truck in Philly. I was scared, thought I was going to the BIG HOUSE. I got the HELL outta there. I had all these gifts I didn't know what was hot and what wasn't. I got rid of everything it wasn't worth it to me. I was into the 12 steps then and I took it to heart. Except I did sell one of the stereos to my ex-boss who was a retired Santa Barbara probation officer, Mischief overtook honesty. Take it from me…NOT. There will be a lot of shoplifting and theft over the Holiday Season. Lock everything; if you're a man keep your wallet in your front pocket or hidden elsewhere. Always carry chump change in your front pocket in case you get robbed five or ten bucks is a better loss than six or seven hundred. Same thing with a purse; carry chump change in it stash the important stuff elsewhere. You may not think so, but thieves are watching your every move.
Well last but SNOT least, people who find it necessary to put Roger down because he can't spell, or hear, or do anything white. He might as well just take a long walk off Stearns Warf because he can't do anything. Therefore I cannot support Edhat but I will continue to read Edhat for FREE and put Roger down. Yea, you poo dat. :)

That is it for now. In answer to someone's question, is this all I poo - sit all day and listen to the Scanner? Yes that is exactly what I poo - sit right here in my chair and listen to the scanner all day and some of the night. Sometimes I listen to the scanner early in the morning. I sleep with it on all night long. I love my scanner I was even stinking of getting married to my scanner on the Jerry Springer Show but we waited too long. Jerry Springer isn't on anymore. I've been trying to find a girl that loves the Scanner as much as I do but they are all zombies. I have a life, I have my scanner. Dog willing me and my Scanner will see you on Wednesday. Roger
