when the xbi wants your attention, they get it

once upon a time i had the most simple life

and then it got simpler.

i judge the simplicity of life by two things

how many keys you have

and how many things you


to do every day.

one reason i left the xbi was because it became a

have to

instead of a get to.

i’ll be honest sometimes this very blog feels like a have to sometimes

and i know how to get out of that slide easily.

usually it’s tell the truth more.

ended up in urgent care bent over that very table there

theres a window with some venetian blinds to the right

but theyre a rip off because when you part them

it’s a view of nothing.

not nothing nothing, but not what you wanna see when youre looking for something good in the world

when you need to see something good in the world.

you know it’s there somewhere and it sure would be nice for it to be right out there past the garbage somewhere

drove a guy named mario the other day

he told me marriage is a suckers game

told me he met this woman who turned out was super rich because her dad owned a building in DTLA

and when he died she got it

and it brought in $100k a month.

he said she bought so many shoes they needed their own bedroom. there were purses everywhere. after a while they stopped having sex so he was all, i want a divorce. secretly he was thinking maybe he would get some of this cash because he sure as hell wasnt making $100k a month.

but in the divorce settlement it turned out that because that money went through a trust, it didn’t count as income for her in divorce court

indeed in that court it appeared she had zero income,

so he has to pay her alimony.

he’s a baker.

he told me: just go to hookers. it’s cheaper and better sex.
