I have to meet with my landlord again this morning, and i do NOT like the way he was talking to me yesterday at all. He was asking me stupid questions like if I burned candles, if I was a smoker, and how often I used my record player, as if ANY of those things might have contributed to the fire in any shape, form or fashion. I was look like man..I WAS NOT HOME. There were no mood candles, no smokefests, and no seductive tunes jumping off in my absence. He also said the investigators are asking my neighbors about my behaviors and all that, and I just shook my head. My neighbors engage in some shady habits while in their apt, and i'm being questioned like crazy. I understand everyone is allegedly doing their job, and I hope that this process helps to determine what happened and all that jazz. But it is insulting on some level to be having these conversations with people who go home to all of their belongings, while I have little to nothing. I have a feeling this is going to get messy, and once again I will need an attorney.first for custody, now for this. And yes, the moratorium on me bitching and moaning only lasted one day. I'm operating on 2 hours sleep, and I am hella cranky this morning.

I watched that entire Pistons/Cavs game last night, and every time Cleveland would hit a big basket or stymie a Pistons run, I would literally want to throw something at the television screen. I can't even target my hate towards Lebron this time, because there were an entire cast of characters contributing to my angst. Daniel Gibson was playing like the ghost of BJ Armstrong had jumped into him. Drew Gooden was hitting shots everywhere, and of course Lebron was doing his normal routine of hitting big shots in a timely fashion. But I will target the brunt of my hate towards Chauncey Billups who is known as Mr. Big Shot. My Big shot has been choking ALL series, and last night was no exception. Yes he shot a bit better, but he had crucial turnovers, he took dumb shots, he committed dumb fouls and for a veteran to make those types of plays in unacceptable man. He's a free agent after this year, and the amount of money he is going to be able to demand dwindles every time he steps out on the court. If Cleveland wins this series, it will be Chauncey's fault, and if I ever see him out on the street, I will tell him as much.

i shall return after meeting with the landlord....

This reminds me of an episode of Law and Order. Where they accuse the victim first.

Rashad, Rashad....
do you not remember the series when the Cavs won three straight against the Pistons, and still went on to lose the series. They don't call him Mr. Big Shot for nothing. Please don't tell me you're giving up....

think about it!!!

RM, I am sure it is all protocol with the questions, but I just have two comments:

You said, "My neighbors engage in some shady habits while in their apt, and i'm being questioned like crazy."

That is an understatement . . . your neighbors should be the ones with the burned up apartment based on the questions they are asking - do you smoke?! LOL!

You said: "I understand everyone is allegedly doing their job, and I hope that this process helps to determine what happened and all that jazz. But it is insulting on some level to be having these conversations with people who go home to all of their belongings, while I have little to nothing."

I totally agree . . . but, once more, I think they are just verifying everything. I am pretty sure you won't need an attorney this time. It's pretty much an insurance routine. If you have ever been in a car accident, you will totally understand. I was once wrongfully accused of a hit-and-run. I had to take a day off from work and wait for hours at the insurance lot just so they could inspect my car and make sure I was not in fact the hit-and-run driver. (The car that was hit gave my license number.) It was annoying at best and downright sinful at worst to have some stranger inspecting my car and grilling me about every scratch on it. So, believe me, I can feel your anger with this one. Your belongings were taken away because of something you had no control over and here you are trying to defend yourself. It makes no sense at all.

So, I feel your pain. Just keep your head up!
