And the Beat Goes On…

I’m still holed up at the homeless shelter and if nothing else, it’s a real trip being here.  There are characters supremeo, the wolves are out for your cigarettes every….minute….the vultures want ‘the kill’ on your smoke, you know, the last few drags.  some you know are good to pay you back, others you charge 50 cents, others it’s like, ‘i wouldn’t give you a smoke if it killed me’.

some are bitching because they got busted taking advantage of the system , but they just can’t see where or how…in their minds it’s all here just for them.  others are working overtime looking for a room, a suite, a job, anything.

there’s the able and the disabled.  there’s the top two floors that are b.c. housing and people have their own suites (the rules say we’re not allowed to talk with them).  there’s us on the first floor and we have to beds and two lockers , two tables and a sink.  there’s those in the basement (men’s dorm) with about 30 bunks and limited access.  there’s those sleeping outdoors behind a building , waiting for a bed to open.

the shit has hit the fan over internet usage…there’s two computers and they are only supposed to be used for looking for jobs and work.  too many have been hogging them for facebook and youtubes.  now we have a sign up sheet that limits us to half hour blocks or two blocks at a time but that’s your limit for the day.  interesting…now that that rule has come in the computers seem to be getting more use then ever.  it used to be fairly easy to boot someone off who was watching  a movie or whatever.  now that the games changed everyone’s using every last minute of their block.   observations of differences between regulations from above and self regulation.

cold and the flu are still flying about and they’ve finally got ‘proper’ masks in, the N95’s …..out with the hardware store dust masks (useless).  typical scenes like the young blonde woman coming in and every man and his dog trying to get into her pants.  the ‘pay for gay’ guy has gone.  one of the most obnoxious guys (i don’t know , he’s schizoid or something) FINALLY got the boot last night.  yay.

i like my buddies….a strong strong bond develops when it comes to survival.

the gordon campbell regime got it’s way with legislation that would see the cops force the homeless into shelter or jail in extreme weather.  the tyranical sociopathic government is perched to instate war measures (marshall law) bit by bit , inch  by inch, till the sleeping public is enveloped.

Armed forces choppers are being spotted from our smoking pit and the narrows had a frigate sail past today…all the security is getting in place for the olympics.

this is civilization?

    Ugh! This is just painful to read, Scout.

    I am also looking for a place to live. My roommate has asked me to move out because she no longer needs the rental income. Can we say STRESS???

    Oh Scout, what fresh hell is this you are living these days. Is there anything you need help with (from across the miles)?

    What is the rational behind the “no talking to people who have BC housing suites upstairs” rule?

    hey, thanks for your concerns! i’m fine, it’s crazy, there’s nothing i really need.

    it’s an institutional model so with that comes the various rules and regs….PLUS the workers are union so there’s that to contend with too……constant drama with us inmates and staff :D.

    it’s just a matter of knowing bow to deal with whom and i confess to pushing a big guy around last night cause he was picking on a friend. oops 😀

    it’s a good lesson in patience, testing patience , remaining grounded and balanced…..you’re kinda forced into it and setting hard tough boundaries.. most treat me well and with respect…some don’t but they don’t treat anyone like that. and then there’s the people ya just don’t naturally like but have to put up with.

    good luck, coyote…..remember DON’T relocate to vancouver !!!!!!!!!

    Good to know that you’re OK and taking this is stride or as they say “another friggen learning opportunity” 🙂 🙂

    Interesting posts of times in a shelter BTY.

    hi Scout…wow what a powerful post. I’m sorry to hear you are in this situation. Is this civilization indeed? However having followed your awesome adventures for years I know you’ll come out of this chapter as strong and as good as ever.
    Hopefully your posts from the shelter will also help inform more Canadians about the reality of homelessness, because too many of them would rather avoid it.
    And it’s an absolute scandal. In a country as rich as this one EVERYONE should have a home.
    Oh well good luck. Those other people in the shelter are lucky to have you if only for a while. I hope they appreciate it… 🙂

    hey simon! always great when you drop in…i haven’t been able to access a computer enough to browse your site and others…ah well, soon, perhaps soon.

    ha, ya, this all seems like just another chapter in my life. all i can do is go with the wind :D. do i dream about hawaii a lot, YOU BET!!!! 😀
