The rapper Young Jeezy has a line in one of his songs: My house stupid dumb big! My rooms got rooms!!!

No, Jeezy. Those aren't rooms. Those are closets... Your rooms don't have 2 other tiny little rooms with really weird sleeping arrangements inspired by the Japanese.

He'd make a horrible real estate agent. "And over here we have a 32 bedroom...

Holy hell. Thanks for this entry. You've injected much needed humor in my day. Was your ex a half-squirrel?
supernovice:
@adelina  You're welcome Madame.  Can squirrels be sociopaths?  Hmmm..

So, I'm absentmindedly watching a "reality" show while answering emails--certainly not like any fucking "reality" I've ever experienced. I won't tell you which one because it's totally emasculating and by pure, honest, circumstance; but what caught my attention was how the producers blurred out people's faces who were inadvertently photographed in public while making the show. I get it--it's...

Ahh yes. I'll grrrr with you. Let's take it seriously or let's not! No lukewarm shit. ;-) 

Que está cansado que le digan lo que debe hacer

Que cualquier desgraciado liga más que el

Que se hartó de ver incómodo e impávido

Que la fila de al lado siempre se mueva más rápido

Que su jefe tiene más antojos que una diva

Que viaja al Soho y él con el desalojo arriba

Que no renunciaría, pero si le daría

Un par de...

And, you don't know what you're doin'
When you turn and act tough
You don't know what it's like
To be me when your eyes light up

And, you don't know what you're doin'
You can only "play hurt" so much
When you're calling me all about "him"
And I can't hang up

And, you don't...

And her mom's from Indiana and she
She married an Asian man and they
They brought her from Japan to be
Happily suburban and I
I met her one summer when I was
I was just visiting ten days
Her wrists were island thin but she
She smiled like her Indy kin
And she's half

She's into strictly rich...

Very nice 

Always had a roof above me, always paid the rent
No, I've never set foot inside a tent
I couldn't build a fire to save my life
I lied about being the outdoor type

I've never slept out underneath the stars
The closest that I came to that was one time my car
Broke down for an hour in the suburbs at...

I live in an upper-tier neighborhood in Miami. There's a Publix right across the street. These two coincidences collide to make a "Perfect Storm" of homeless people.

I don't have anything against homeless people. They're great! Well, they're okay, I guess. "Great" is kind of an overstatement. But, for the most part, they're nice.

Now, I can tell you, there...

There's really a part of Miami nicknamed 'pork n beans?' I'm guessing that it isn't the affluent part of town. 
supernovice:
@adelina   It's actually Liberty City, but "Pork & Beans" is a collection of projects that spans for many city blocks.  Easily the most murders per year in the state (I think).  Sooo dangerous.     http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2012/07/gang_war_has_liberty_city_unde.php

Mas tarde que temprano te largaste pa´ fuera
cubierto bien de telas el viento es el que congela
el viejo lo anuncio cuando el cielo se cayo
levantando bien los brazos pa´ poder atajarlo
dichosos son aquellos que sienten con la piel
no preguntes quien es quien en la calle podes ver
el color que se desprende, aromas que te envuelven
en ese mar de...

“La verdad es que no hay una verdad”,
leí en una pared de la ciudad.
¿Habrá sido una virtud o casualidad?
Y sentí inquietud de estar a merced de tanta sed de dualidad.
¡Que barbaridad!
Lo barato sale caro, lo normal es lo raro. ¿Estaré sonado?
Me visto despacio si estoy apurado. Amo ser odiado,
y tener la facha de un repetidor y la nota...

Well, I had an awful dream...
Laid your bones by a shallow stream--
And I carved your name in a willow tree
And I beat the ground...

With water clear and sun abright
I let the tears alone to dry.
I raised my arms up to the sky
And challenged God.

He had no prose...
He had no right.
To take my dove--my little light--...
