The Homeless

DSC04873.JPGwe have more in common than you think

I need a place to live. My own place with my own stuff so that my own friends can come stay with me and use my own Internet and my own bed. I am sitting in the Public Library in the town that used to be mine, but still belongs to my parents - and no, they don't own it, I am speaking metaphorically here, so that I can use someone else's Internet and tomorrow I head back into NYC to sleep in someone else's bed.

I want a place to put my shit. The piles of it I collected in San Francisco, in London, Prague and the other places I visited. I need a place to throw my smelly shoes off and pick my big, green boogers out of my rather wide nose.

I'm not complaining just so you know. Not in the least. I'm just tired and when you're flight lands at 7PM and you have to go back to your parents house to sleep in your brothers bed (I hate the mattress in my room) it makes you think how much more you want, actually need, your own place.

I am about to turn 30 dammit, and I wanna own a piece of land. In NYC I think, which may make me crazy, but at least it would be mine. I don't have a "regular" job, or much money for that matter, so how can I become a property owner? And what is regular? It's like normal, another word I hate, still I used it, so I own it and just ask the question anyway. Maybe I'm more annoying because I'm tired, or maybe I'm only annoying myself right now. If you annoy yourself, how do you stop? I am still figuring all of this out.

Damn, I ask a lot of questions...

Now onto more serious issues...

Isn't it sad that it still takes a 47 year old man, 47 years to come out (Okay, not that long, but you know what I'm saying) New Jersey, Gov. Jim McGreevey is out of the closet and leaving office. The media is focusing on the fact that he's gay, but isn't there something to be said for the fact that he only came out because he's being sued for SEXUAL HARRASSMENT?! What's that all about?

Politics is such a dirty word.
