Detroit Green

What up, y'all? I was biding my time trying to gather my thoughts to post again. I have a lot of shit swimming around in my head. None of it all that urgent, but it's cluttered up there.

First off, I'd like to give a special shout out to one of my favorite (if not favorite) bloggers in the world, Aunt Jackie a.k.a. Ms. Ahmad a.k.a. The Glamazon, who graced me and TAD with her presence last Friday. We had a relatively short visit (why didn't you call, man?) but we got to laugh, break bread, drink and watch people. It felt like we've known each other forever and it's been about 4 blog years. We know blog years are longer than human years due to the level of disclosure we have online, so it was like eating with an old friend. I think we got a chance to witness somebody being relieved of their auto against their will, and that's always fun. We'll be in California soon, and we'll be wearing neutral colors.

I'm back in Satan's Anus still waiting on my reimbursement check and my rejection letter. Job hunting is hard, yo. I'm not looking right now. No other resumes have been sent out. It's sort of a weird time for me. Where I'm actually concentrating on "working" at my current "job". It's something I've never tried before. Also, I'm forced to think about where we are going to invest our forthcoming stimulus loot. Everybody with half a hustle has their hands out trying to get a contract with wth city to do a project that's not helpful or stimulating to anyone but themselves. I would personally issue a blanket "fuck you" to all comers, but of course my slack ass boss has made it my job to have meetings with these jack leg entrepreneurs as often as possible. Honestly, fuck this place.

I was driving with some co-workers to this Junior Achievement thing we were doing at one of the local high schools. Of course, I drive like I have some place to go, so that's really off-putting to native Anusites. One of my passengers was gape-mouthed because I sped through a yellow light. She asked me "Why didn't you slow down?" I said "Because yellow is a Detroit Green. It's a Satan's Anus Red." That's how I feel about this community as a whole. Mentally, I'm always trying to go and they're always trying to slow me down and keep me preoccupied with "the other" shit. I'm so sick of the other shit, but I'll do it until I can leave.

Good to see you on your horse at least...

Your Detroit stop light system reminded me of commuting with a co-worker and her then 2yr old. He would alway curse at the other drivers and yell go faster at the yellow lights. I finally asked him what the colors mean. He said, "Red is STOP, green is GO, and yellow is GO REALLY FAST!"

Yellow IS really fast! That's a smart 2 year old.

Since Ahmad and I are practically the same person...minus my procrastination, laziness, and non-directional life...
...I must be your fav blogger too.

Today, Monday, has made a 1-year anniversary that I have not worked.
Looking for work...has been disappointing. I am still trying to figure out how I am able to comfortably.
I need a vacay from the mundane-ness.

Knockout Zed said...

Are committed to staying where you are? Or are you looking all over? I don't know if I could help, but I'm willing to try.


A.u.n.t. Jackie said...

Dude!! We seriously should have taken a picture of that Paella. The food itself was damn near as blog worthy as the company:-)

You and TAD are the very very best. i can't even how much it was like being in the company of good friends...and that's what you guys are to me. Good friends.

Come on out to California and let me show you guys a good time on MY Coast!!

And by the way TAD is the rock star for making an honest man out of you!!

ZED.....yellow is also a Philly Green and A New York Green. I feel you.

Congrats to your Basketball squad. Villanova will see you at the Final :)

Knockout Zed said...

I would love to see Villanova in the finals, but I'd rather see UNC for the revenge factor. They beat us by like 30 in December.

I know I am suppose to be thankful to have a job, but sometimes they make it hard to do that. Good luck with the job search.
