Life in Echo Park

North of Downtown L.A. is where you'll find Echo Park. A place where i was born and raised... A place where i can always find solitude with its distant echos. Not your typical neighborhood in Los Angeles. This is life here...

New Year - New Style!

It came and it went , all the while i quietly decided to make a few personal changes for myself. No presure or "resolutions" to only break but i had my own agenda.

After a long (but quick) 13-14 years of having long hair i decided to make some changes and found myself looking forward to it! I realize that there are too many like me out there who get caught up into their long hair trip and either never outgrow it or just don't want to cause they really think it looks good on them. For some it can and i was one who could wear it well at any lenght so i know about moving on and not being stuborn or afraid of change. Yes, i cut my hair and i love it! Change can be hard but it definately is a good thing in some cases (like this).

Everyone trips on the new look i now sport too. One thing i made sure of before doing anything to my hair....I made sure i knew who was gonna cut it and that that were good at something like this! The guy was great and the guy was gay. I wouldn't have wanted it cut by a woman either! These stylist(the gay ones are dam good at what they do...period) .

Secondly, he also had long hair like myself and a tail. So he knew what was up! I only requested that he do a job where it wouldn't look like i just stepped out of the butcher barber know, the too short just cut look? That kills it right there! I stepped out with a look that no one would be able to tell it was just cut. All i know it that i'm a happy camper and also plan to toss the levis and flannels for dockers and dress /casual shirts. I'm gonna have fun with my new look too! and why is too short to stay in that same ol same ol...know what i mean!

Me Sick..i mean physically !

No, i'm really feeling the onset of a bad one and even though i hate being sick and seldom ever am it seems its time for my body to break dance with the chill (y) peppers. You know, the hot and cold of it! Thats the part i don't like one bit! Being achey i can live with(barely) but sweating like a rudedog then flipping and chillin really chupa (sucks). Oh well so goes life and near death experiences. Look out covers, here i come!!! This just shows you that al the hoopla about flu shots are a farce and probably more public lies. Sh.. who knows what they're really shooting up everyone with...think of the sinister possibilities... Must be the the fever kicking in! hehe

Updated soon just to let you know i'm still alive somehow

yes,i'm still kicking!
The chills never really hit me but the sweats have been soaking me good twice a night the past couple days. Been really tired and well...sick, but not bad or worst than i expected. If you begin to feel a slight "tingle" in your throat? Your in trouble soon enough if you don't do something fast! Well as i sit here i can feel the body begin to break out in a sweat so thats a good thing..somehow. I'm off to bed now.

Ok,i'm back at 95% now but still need a day or two before completely normal. I have a tendancy to jump the gun and then pay with a relapse, so not this time.
So it all started on sunday and done by sunday. Thats about right !

Now moving on...

The mother of all Rain !

So it finally came and hit home dam hard!
Lots of good ol' rain and with it...trouble galore! I drove passed the L.A. River the other day and noticed people gathering at the overcross/bridge looking out at this big ass scary rage of massive torrents looking pretty full and dangerously close to its edge! Ok, it still had 10 to 15 feet til it would spill over but man, that river was really moving!!

Anyway, I been spending my time indoors keeping dry and warm...but bored!
Slept alot but its not really my fault! You see... I sleep next to the window and it sounds sooo nice listening to the rain falling and all my chimes doing their nice little thing. Then theres the tree's leaves ruselling in the wind and rain and me? Under a blush thick layer of covers...loving every minute of it!!! Wish i didn't have to wake up...maybe just stay comatose and happy! But no, my bladder wouldn't have it!

Oh well, life must go on when necessary.
