At Home

Hell in a hand basket

As we were driving home from a double baby shower the other night, my mom reminded me that I am NOT to drink the water down here.  I kept trying to explain to her how babies are made, but she just doesn’t quite get it.  Given this, it’s amazing that I don’t have a litter of siblings.  […]

Jump out Boyz!

People often ask me what there is to do for entertainment in Jacksonville.  For the most part, I would say there is a whole lot of nothing….. Jacksonville is a sleepy town that just recently came to the realization may no longer be living in the era of segregation and inequality, yet they seem to be having a hard […]

Bike Rescue, Call 911!

AnDre and I went to save a bike from certain demise – a cruiser to be exact!  We had seen it decomposing the night before while celebrating my birthday at a restaurant on the beach (and for those of you who know when that is – yes, it has taken me THAT long to write this post…..).  I […]

Workin’ for the Man!

I have been working for the man across the street for several days now. It has become increasingly apparent that His and Her Jackassholiness are completely indecisive and nothing seems to ever run on schedule with this project.  Thus, I have decided to continue to drive alone in the mornings. I generally take my sweet ass time and don’t leave the […]

Me llamo es Jose

I have started working recently for my mom’s neighbor part-time.  As a contractor, he does quite a bit of home improvement work here in the area.  Since I also know he is reading this, I will keep it nicey nice.  The short of it……his work style is much different from mine…..it is a disaster!  You […]

Pimptastic Fridays!

People drive as slow as molasses in Florida.  I know what you are going to say……that’s because they’re all old people.  Not so in Jacksonville.  According to City Data, the median age, 33.8 years, here is much younger, whereas the rest of Florida is 38.7.  It is just summer in the South, and it is Holy […]

Leaving on a Jet Plane

As I was leaving DC recently, I was struck with great appreciation for meeting such an eclectic mix of people and was grateful to have many thoughtful, intelligent conversations with each of them. DC folks love their conversations, as well as their debates. After partaking in so many wonderful discussions over the past week or […]

Weinergate

Recently, I had the pleasure of staying with a dear friend in DC for 10 days. I had not been to DC since I was 11 – for a 6th grade field trip. We toured all of the proper historical sites that a 6th grader should when they are learning about the establishment of our […]

Post Office A-Holes!

The guy who bought my old place reported to one of my old neighbors in the building, he is still receiving mail for me. I know it is normal when you move that your crap-tas-tic catalogs will still be mailed to the old address for eternity – I remember receiving mail periodically for a person […]

Jacquiel O’Neal

Saturday morning the door bell rang – at 7:30am. I was still in bed, amazingly enough – since I have got into a nasty habit of awaking around 5:30am these days. Immediately, I thought – “Wow, the Jehovah’s Witnesses are getting their start earlier and earlier these days.” My mom answered the door, I heard […]
