January 19 - February 3, 2004
time again for my world famous weekly thought.
The place where I tell you everything that is going on in my head
and stuff thats happening with me.
Wins Super 7 Lotto
Before I talk about anything, I have to say CONGRATULATIONS
to my dear friend, Sophie who won the lottery the other day.
She played the SUPER 7 and even though she didn't win the big
$30 Million jackpot, she still walked away with enough loot
to be smiling about. Sophie played a Quick Pick selection on
her birthday. The drawing for this lottery was on Jan. 30. Sophie
missed just one number which would have made her $30 Million
richer. How much did Sophie actually win? Well, since there
were 459 other people that got 6 out of the 7 numbers right,
she had to split her winnings. Sophie ended up with $2357.50.
Not bad for a quick pick ticket! Don't bother trying to hit
up Sophie for the money now, its already spent.
Goes To Apartment Niteclub
Since returning from my vacation in Florida, what have I been
up to? January has been a very busy month for me! As soon as I
got back, one of my dear friends from my days in Miami was in
town and wanted to meet up with me. Her name was Rachel,
and her and I used to work together. She's currently working on
a nationwide tour with Verizon Wireless and was in New York for
the night. She called me up and we met up in the East Village.
When I met up with her, I met her friends. One of them was JAHI
SUNDANCE from the Scratch Academy. He was real cool.
From there he took us to Apartment
Niteclub (419 W13 ST) which is hidden in the meat district
of Manhattan. We went down to the lower level, and went for some
drinks. Rachel and I were just chattng about where we are now
and catching up on things. I remember when I was working with
Rachel, I told her that she should go to Japan and take one of
the temporary jobs there to work as an english teacher. She listened
to me and took me up on it. She was gone for about 2 years out
there and is now back here. Rachel told me that if it wasn't for
me, she would have never gone to Japan because she didn't even
know about the program. In a way, meeting me changed her life.
After a few drinks at Apartment, we all parted because they had
to be on the road the next day and I had work in the morning. It
was cool seeing Rachel and I hope to see her again soon when she
comes back this way.

About Mistaken Identity!
It was a very cold winter morning in New York. I dressed appropriately
for the weather, with my goose downed jacket, ski mask to protect
my face and sunglasses for my eyes. I was warm and cozy. On my
way to work around 7:55am I stop into this convenience store to
get an orange juice. What happened next, was something I had no
idea would happen. As I walked to the fridge where the orange
juice was, I didn't notice it but the rest of the customers in
the store froze in their steps. Apparently, everyone there (including
the man behind the counter) was thinking that I was just about
to rob the place. Why? Well, because of the way I was dressed.
(the ski mask, gloves, etc..) So, me being completely oblivious
to the situation walks real slow to the counter, reaching into
my pocket for a $5 bill that I just couldn't seem to find. Everyone
in the store held their breath and paused awaiting to see what
dastardly weapon I was going ot pull out. Eventually my $5 bill
did come out and I walked to the counter looking at the guy behind
the counter. He was completely frozen and was afraid to take my
money.... and asked in a quivering voice, "A-a-are you going
to rob me?" I was completely caught off guard wondering if
he was kidding or not. I answered him, "No.. its just real
cold outside!" Then one of the store customers wanted to
play hero and got involved. A man towering 6 feet something above
me wearing Army camoflauge took out a foot long knife and pointed
it towards my direction saying, "I'll keep ya until the cops
get here!!!" I was like, "WHAT?!!" I then cleared
it up with everyone around me that I was there specifically to
buy an orange juice. Anyways... I just paid for my juice, and
told them that I'm just keeping warm, and I walked out of there.
