There has been all this – “Things you might not know about me” on facebook….This post is for my fellow CEDU alumni who think we should look back at our 2 1/2 year stay there as a positive place and lucky to be a part of CEDU
A month after I got there my mother died in a car accident….
Pam Abel brought me into the oh so secret faculty room and sat me down and basically said – we just got a call from your dad and your mother is in a coma and will not live for more than 2 days…..
she then grabbed 2 amazing friends of mine named Amanda and Tina and brought me into a side room – after a whole life of horrible, horrible physical and mental abuse from my mother the first word that I thought after I heard Pam tell me my mom was dying was “good”
the next day Cathy Prins and I flew to NYC, went to my house in Connecticut…I was on full bans from my entire fucking family at my house (bans means that they dont exist to you..cant talk to them look at them be near them at all…you have to ignore them) and the next morning when we went to Yale New Haven Hospital so I could stand next to her for only 20 min and fly right back to CEDU…My whole family was at the hospital and Cathy made sure I didnt break bans at all…flew back to CEDU right after my 20 min…she died the day I was there…2 days later Cathy and I flew to Long Island (where she was from) stayed in a motel-went to the funeral home…down the hall to a church…short drive to the cemetary..as soon as the priest said amen…before she was even being lowered into the ground I was forced to let go of the only hand I held all day-my mom had a longtime boyfriend Joe Defeo who I was close with and was basically pushing Cathy Prins away while she kept on trying to break our hands away from each other……
The only special treatment I got after returning to CEDU was that I was allowed my guitar priveledge….and then got yelled at in raps for getting to play guitar…and then getting yelled at for only talking about my mom dying and not talking about why I was sent there…I still had all the same as my peer group in family comunications….
So yeah CEDU was a healthy loving special place for me to
I can’t tell you how many times people have said to me that I need to write a book about my life and all the things I have done – so here is a start
Wow-where to start……I’ve been keeping a huge secret and I thought I could just go through this and let it pass without telling more than a handful of people….I am in the process of getting all new teeth…it is horrible in so many ways …I may write about it later….it’s already been over 2 months now that I am at my dentist weekly and I can’t imagine that it will be done before christmas
I’ve been meaning to blog about the Doctor…but I don’t think I ever have….when I was about 20, I went to san francisco to visit my BFF Jackson. He picked me up from the airport and he told me we were going to a Doctor Who convention…it consisted of about 15 kids in a pizza place that was like the left coast version of pizza hut in a private room they have for parties….We ate bad pizza and talked to nerds..watched a little of the show and yeah I was confused..
.jackson had this awesome roommate…I’m only half sure his name was Chris…he was the best kind of person there is…he loved the Doctor and Jackson thought the theme song was the best song ever….man he was awesome…I thought it was cool that he was good at playing the concertina-so he gave me one of his…
anyWho…when I lived in Philly it would be on for an hour on saturday nights and the family I nannied for had tivo…so I have about 30 tapes in my closet that just say doctor on it…i gotta organize them…
this is when I got Doctor Who…the 4th Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith (one of his best companions) were in a tunnel and she got stuck. The Doctor started calling her fat and it got her so mad that she was able to wiggle out of the hole so she could yell at him…therefore solving the problem…. then he laughed at her….
I love jerks and being a jerk and calling out jerks and what not ……and he is a big awesome alien jerk but he does things in a tricky way that is always amazing.
He never carries a gun or weapon ever. He has his TARDIS -his time and space machine thats all sorts of magic…and a sonic screwdriver and hundreds of years of living under his belt….pretty much all the time he has human compainions that help him in his adventures of saving the human speicies and his fave planet-earth…
here are a few requirements for being The Doctor’s companion
You have to be able to run…a whole lot
when he tells you to stay right here-don’t follow me…always follow him
and you have to be smart….and a good person
First aired in 1963…went on until 89 and then it came back in 2005
what I used to love about the show was how super low buget it was…props falling apart…stuff obviously made of bubble wrap and tin foil and a toilet plunger…but the acting was super serious and professional but the show just didnt have a lot of money so there would be this greatness with the actors being so good on a set made of construction paper and pipecleaners
since it has come back in 05 there are single episodes that cost at least a million dollars to make….and everything about the show now that its back has been super successful and it is actually a lot better than most of the old ones…except for all the Tom Baker ones…
its the longest running sci fi show ever…the Doctor is a time lord-that means that he has two hearts so if he is fatally wounded then he regenerates into another Doctor (actor) …that’s why it never ends and never has to end…we are currently on the 11th Doctor
I’ve been writing for a long time about Doctor Who and I need a water….I’ll write a bunch more soon
