Linda's Cafe Xmas. [Dec. 30th, 2004|01:45 am]
Sauce1977


There's this local diner near my house on 9 Mile and Harper by the name of Linda's Cafe.

This was the place where the last batch of Christmas took place.

Heidi and I met up with my dad around 10 PM yesterday at Linda's. My dad is this skinny man who kind of looks like me. He rolled in a little late because he expected a call from me, only to find his cat had disconnected the phone. I hugged him. I had not had the chance to hang out with my pops in almost a year.

We exchanged gifts, and then we ordered food. Dad chose liver and onions, Heidi had breakfasty foods with hash browns, and I picked the fish and chips.

Dad offered me the keys to successful and harmonious living. He discussed many values of morals, ethics, and shortcuts to enlighten me upon the great path of inner harmony. He mentioned that I took the information much better than his sponsee, who is generally not in the right place in his mind and heart at the moment. When Dad asked me if I knew who the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were, I responded, "Sure, I know them. There's Larry, Moe, Curly, and Shemp. Shemp is the unloved one."

If I can't entertain, then it just doesn't feel right.

Dad cautioned me on resentments. I hold a few from time to time, but I know I'm not perfect.

It was a swell end to the extended holiday. I even celebrated Boxing Day. How many Americans do you know who even know when that day is?

wow, your dad seems like a wise man always full of advice. He isnt a 200 year old Chinese Wizard is he?

It sounds like it was a really great night though. I get together with my dad about once a year, and its never very eventful. I think he was a little disappointed in me when my sister informed him that i asked for a barbie doll for christmas. (it was a Batgirl one)

Hahaha.

The worst thing a parent can do is not love their child.

Sadly, the frequency of such a non-action is quite high, I'd wager.

My pops isn't 200 years old or a Chinese wizard, but he's pretty good, considering the alternatives.

Ryan, it's okay to have Barbies.

I received them for some gift that I asked for when I was little. I wanted the Ken and the materialistic world they lived in . . . I also wanted to use the stuff for props in other playsets. It's not absurd for even the oldest people to have Barbies, men, women, or hermaphrodites.

In that case, we'll keep it hush-hush, on the down-low. :D

So, on Boxing Day you gave all your leftover food to the poor?

Actually, we were the opposite of that . . .

We stayed at a house in Windsor, and Heidi's pops arranged a home-cooked meal while we watched six different NFL games between all of the affiliates they carry on the Canadian side.

Ah, shit, if I'd known you were back in Detroit I would have made you get up at four in the morning to come hang out at the airport terminal while Betsy and I waited for our connecting flight.

Shit!

When were you connected in Detroit Metro?

It's okay. If I ever find a way out of this debt-noose, I might be encouraged to perform road trips or plane flights for weekend visits.

I already have a wish to drive on down to Kentucky to hang with jetpropel.

However, my main long-term goal is to direct efforts to land back in Los Angeles for residence.
