Tales From The Shelter – 22

September 4, 2010 at 12:31 pm

It’s a family occassion and I’m in an undisclosed city.  Everyone’s homes were filled up so the family paid for a suite for me in a 4 star hotel.  NICE!  Actually, I’m doing my best to stick to nice and punchout the thoughts of rejection…childhood esteem problems that carry on into adulthood have a way of sneaking up on you like cheap underwear.

This morning I woke up with bed bug bites.  Housekeeping came to examine my room and found the shell of a bug under the mattress and that’s enough for them to go into action.  I was moved into the Penthouse (oh boo hoo! that’s it, I now love these bugs!) and my clothes have been sent out for dry cleaning.

Funny how the Silly MAn has fewer problems with bed bugs then some of the top hotels around.  My suspicious side tells me the Silly sprays a fumagant into the air vents , which may explain why so many come down with strange allergies and sicknesses…or maybe I’m completely off the map and it has to be chalked up to close living quarters, chemicals used in cleaning, low immune systems due to stress, and further compromised by mental illness.

All I know is all the other shelters in Vancouver follow ‘bed bug protocol” and as soon as you enter they give you some donated clothes, send you to the showers, take all your clothes, suitcases, nap sacks etc., wash the clothes, put the other stuff in a huge plastic bag and spray the shit out of them.  The Silly is the only place I’m aware of that doesn’t do this.

Part of family discussion last night was the impending doom awaiting Gordy Campbell’s Liberals.  My father said, “People used to vote for competance vs. compassion, now their going to vote competance and compassion, and that’s the NDP”.  Quite the words from someone who was a conservative all his life but finally mellowed somewhat in his latter years.  Is it too early to say, “Hail, hail, Carole James?”.

Does the NDP have the capacity to create more affordable housing, pronto?  Afterall, they are just another party in my books, but the lesser of evils.  I do like Carole James but governance is governance and we still have the very system that is sick, sick, sick.  The Greens have the correct platform and policies to change the system and create sustainable governance but they’re like the NDP in their early days and need more time to come up to snuff.  But here I am talking about current affairs when 2012 awaits us….yes, I am a firm believer in the ‘end of the world as we know it’, so spending time on injustices is merely cathartic and paving the way for how we WON’T be governed in the future.  Heh, heh, people call me wacko for this belief but come the time….

I’m hungry but my agoraphobia is keeping me from going out to catch a bite.  Roomservice food is too expensive so I’ve worked my way into a corner.  Perhaps an extra tranquilizer will help?  That may quelle the notion of being rejected too.  Hell, I think I’ll order in, I’m not up to wandering streets.

Bon Appetite, Scout 😀
