"My father says that nothing belongs to us in this world, Ehm-lee. This is why we share our good fortune with others, and give alms to the poor. This is what we learn: that everything is on loan from God."
On April 16th, I got a little surprise message on my phone. Guess who sent me a text message? You done guessing. None other than Teon.

Of course. Always.
Ok good (9:52PM)
Hate to say it but I'm still not over him.
Flash forward to Saturday April 21--Rick and I went to the movies. He's been off on vacation for the last 5 days. We saw. . .
at AMC Security Square theatre. It was raining like cats and dogs that evening and by the time we were finally seated, we missed a good 20 minutes or so of the movie. It was great nonetheless. Finally my cup of tea--Horror mixed with suspense mixed with mystery. Rick didn't like it too much though. Let's just say that he prefers coffee.
[Numbers] 35:33 Murderers were to be executed because they corrupted the land. But Jesus startles us by saying that even being angry at someone can be a sin like murder. (Matthew 521-22). Murder and anger stem from the same root. While one seems a lesser sin, it will often lead to more sin. Unchecked bitterness and anger will ultimately destroy us. We need to deal with these strong emotions in an appropriate way before they fester and corrupt our life.
I just love these images of black gay males in the TESTING MAKES US STRONGER public service ads. I first saw one of the ads in the November issue of Vibe magazine and I just love the way the images are targeting my specific group- homosexual and bisexual males, the most affected by HIV/AIDS. As you all know I am now a statistic and I hope that I too help someone out there affected by HIV/AIDS. All this time I was hesitant about getting tested because of lack of insurance or support, but I soon found out that there a bunch of different services for those who are infected and/or uninsured. You will not go through it alone. Trust me. I'm not and I'm the most private person in the world.
This product needs no introduction. I've been using it ever since I was in high school and it truly is the best face scrub on the market, hands down. I wouldn't recommend using it everyday however twice a week is good enough for me. I use it as a body scrub once a week as well. Now while I favor the Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub, you really can't go wrong with the Fresh Skin variations as well.
On Thursday, April 12, 2012, New York called me early in the morning to inform me that he was admitted into Mercy Medical Center. He says that he was having dizzy spells so the hospital kept him to run some tests. When he told, I knew nothing was wrong. You see he doesn't get any sleep, he doesn't eat well, plus he's always under a lot of stress because he is always in the middle of drama. The next morning on April 13, 2012 the doctors told him that nothing was really wrong and that he was just suffering from the stress, so he was released that afternoon.
I then met up with him downtown and we headed to the movies. We saw Wrath of the Titans in 2D. The movie really sucked. I mean it was action packed, just not my cup of tea. The only reason I chose to see that movie was because that was the only other movie I was even interested in seeing that was playing at the Landmark's Harbor East Cinema. That theatre never has any of the hot and poppin' movies. New York said that he liked it nonetheless.
While we're on the topic of New York, his fiance, Kim, is currently in rehab on the Eastern Shore. She left on 4/12 and she'll be there for about two weeks. Apparently her drug of choice is crack cocaine. Giorgio "Gigi" should follow in her footsteps. Word on the street is that she is now a major crackhead. I feel so sorry for her.
On to other news--I know you watched The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4 Reunion, Part 1 last night. I can't wait for Part 2 this Thursday night.
Ask anyone at The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Housing & Resource Center and they will tell your that the Sugar Free Hawaiian Punch Singles To Go are definitely a staple. Fruit Juicy Red is my favorite flavor.
Rick's mom--Mrs. Mary Neal. Yes mam honey. She tried it last night. After I came in from visiting my mother's house (by the way, my brother's in town), she told Rick that she needed to talk to him. Apparently she told him that I talk to much. Oh no that bitch didn't. She claimed that I told Maria (Mary's daughter) that she's always giving Ricky (Mary's grandson) money whenever he stops by. So we went at it because I have never even spoken to Maria especially concerning Mary or her damn grandson. I will admit that I got up in her old ugly ass face and told her that if someone is bringing my name into anything that we need to nip this in the bud tonight. She then got up and gave me attitude back. Oh hold on you old bitch! You don't want to get popped.
Rick then got in the middle of the whole ordeal and pushed me into the bedroom at which point we started to go at it. He then proceeded to threaten and yell at me all while spitting in my face. And then guess what happened? That nigga put his hands around my neck and told me that he would kill me. Fuck that retarded nigga. He claims that he would have never put his hands on me if I went into the room like he first told me too but I don't care. He should have NEVER put his hands on me. I have NEVER put my hands on him.
After we went at it, Rick proceeds to call Maria to get the story straight. And guess what? Maria never even said that at all, of course. We think Ricky might have lied to his grandmother and put my name in it because really Maria told Ricky not to accept any money from her. That dumb bitch. The nerve of her.
Now today Mrs. Mary wants to act like nothing happened. But I got news for her old smelly ass. I'm not fucking with her anymore. I used to be nice and pretend to listen to her while she talked my ear off. Not anymore bitch. To be honest, I don't even think I want to fuck with Rick anymore after he put his hands on me. Sometimes when we fight, I get kind of scared of his retarded ass. And get this, Rick might be going to Los Angeles courtesy of his friend Chucky next Thursday. He just told me last night. WTF? Plus he's going with his crazy ass friend Chris. (I'll speak on that crazy insecure nut another time.) I really do love Rick, but if I wasn't homeless I really don't think I would be with him. Who knows? He is a fantastic guy nonetheless.
On April Fools Day, Rick and I decided to go the movies. We haven't had a date since Friday, February 10. So of course we just had to check out The "all-so-hyped" Hunger Games and it was pretty good. It started off a little slow (Rick even went to sleep), but it picked up towards the middle to the end. Afterwards, we got some cheesecake to go from The Cheesecake Factory and headed home.
So much to talk about. Where do I even begin? I've been residing with Rick and his mother for over a month now. In fact, I haven't been the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Housing & Resource Center AKA Code Blue since February 20, 2012. I've pretty much been driving Rick up a wall. His mother, Mary Neal, has taken a liking to me though. She can talk your ear off, she is funny as hell.
Other than that, there has been so much going on with my friends at Code Blue, so get ready for an intense update. And this time I came equipped with photos.
Here's Giorgio or Gigi as they call her. She's currently on the blacklist at the HRC for performing oral sex on an old white male right on the Men's floor. This is her second time getting busted in the act so they she can't go back for at least 30 days. She's now residing in an abandoned house around the corner from the HRC.
Here's Chris. He also got busted in the men's bathroom stall with another male so he was blacklisted quite some time ago. He's rocking some track in this photo. He still doesn't know what he wants to be yet. They call him "Black Jesus".
Here's Charles "New York" Johnson. He looks pretty normal here. He recently tested positive for cocaine and he has to attend Anger Management classes until he passes at least 8 drug tests. He's got a new unofficial girlfriend. Her name is "Deep Throat Kim," a t-girl now residing at Code Blue.
A month ago "Uncle Jeff" cut Charles "CJ" Ford on the neck with a box cutter. CJ called the police and Uncle Jeff fled the scene. He hasn't been back to the HRC since. He still keeps in touch with New York though.
No need to be alarmed. CJ had a minor cut. When the paramedics arrived on the scene they treated him with a band-aid. CJ has since gotten his own apartment. He's been trying to get New York and I to come visit. I've kind of been ignoring his calls though. I'll visit him eventually though.
I haven't seen or spoken to Julius "Andrea" Baxter in over two months. I'm quite sure she's still getting drunk every day. I wish her the best. I just hope she doesn't land herself back in jail.
Speaking of jail. Guess who got arrested for soliciting. Semaj "Chardonnay" Daniels. She was arrested on March 28. The bad news is that she might have an outstanding warrant in North Carolina. I think it would do her some good to go back to NC though. She's been falling off for quite some time. I just hope this gives her the reality check that she desperately needs. Also I heard through the grapevine that her ex-boyfriend, Tyrone "Hassan Muhammed" Johniken, accepted LIFE in prison. He didn't even choose to go to trial. I guess the State of Maryland just had too much evidence against him and he's trying to evade the death penalty. I'm only guessing.
