that’s $100 the city won’t get from me

I say this to everyone who gets a ticket

I have yet to have the officer show up for my hearing
It happened again today
That doesn’t mean I can just go out and spend that $100

damn you copy protection

All I wanna do is rip some movies to my hard drive so that I can put them into my show

I was dreading the move out of the apartment
Obviously, I was going to have to help Laura move into her new place too and it proved to be a huge exhausting clusterfuck (as usual)
Not only that, but I knew the finality of it would hit her as soon as she saw the empty apartment
It did and it was real tough

One of the things I wished I didn’t have to leave behind was my job at Larry Morgan’s
I was shocked when that grizzled old man who had just told me he was going to shove his foot up my ass only days earlier said “You don’t really have to leave do you?”
I started to g...
