No one cares about your money. Least of all you.

Get on with the living.
2012 / Money, money, money
« Date written by Father Luke on April 17, 2012, 08:34:06 PM »
I just realized something. The lists of money I "say" I made on 2011 was written in January of 2011. So, in actuality, the money was made in 2010.

That is to say, each year is an accounting of the year previous...

2011 is accounting all the money made in 2010... etc.

I really have to fix all this shit up.

Listen, motherfucker, and let me make this clear:
 Iíve had your fucking poetry up to here Ė
 Your tender recollections and wistful reminisce:
 Excuse me, Mr. Shakespeare, whilst I go and have a piss.

 Somebody start a fight or something

 If I wanted Chekhov Iídíve worn my polo neck
 And brought along some high-strung bitch whoís anorexi-ec,
 But Iím wearing just a tee-shirt, Iím getting off my tits,
 The chick Iím withís a barker, and my life is full of shit.

 Iím not a man of violence, but Iíll give no guarantee
 When Iím faced with symbolism and onamatapee:
 Thereís a fucking artist! Ė let me get my stick!
 You want a fucking beating? Címon, then: go sick.

Everyone is a drifter. Even me. And among the faithful, too.

Faithful to what?

Well, to ourselves, to myself, and the difference anyone can make in their own life.


It's all another day. And today is as old as this moment.

I live in Portland, Oregon now.
I like it more than Santa Cruz.

I do.

I love my life.
All fifty one years of it,
and what may be left.

And thanks.

things change and they don't, huh?

i am in the same physical space, a different physical place and older. so much older.

i bumped into you about 6 years ago, you were living in a town with a santa in it? (my memory is... well, older too) near the coast i think. i spent a couple years in a small beach town, it was good for my soul. the sound of the waves filled my head and pushed out a lot of loose stuff.

i bounced around the forum and the blawg, saw i was a drifter. i probably will remain that, a drifter, but it's good to bump into ya again.

nice site, by the way.

In 2010 I was awarded $200 in food stamps, something called an EBT card,
which is used like a credit card, worth up to, in my case, $200.

So, paid income for 2010 was:

$200 - Food Stamps
  x12 - Months in the year


I got paid $8,831.28 by the State of Oregon to take care of children:


$11231.28 - Income before taxes for 2010

I got paid directly from the State, I have to pay my own taxes, etc.
Taxes are looking like about $600 - $800


$10531.28 - Income after taxes for 2010

There it is.
