Ohhh references to songs and loving mornings and fox all of this, guys, I want to go home. Let’s talk about refugees. Not the ‘imported from Kazakstan’ special kind. Just the homeless bums who you pull off of the streets to live in shoddy shelters that you built with your own two hands.
How does it make you feel thinking about all of those sad, lonely people, when you’re sitting in obvious wealth, in front of a computer, typing your blog like nothing is wrong? Well, I wouldn’t say I’m in wealth, in fact, I’m scared that pretty soon, I may be homeless, too. But we aren’t discussing that, are we? No, what we are talking about is the fact that though this computer sucks and it doesn’t belong to anyone but the school…homeless people don’t have that.
Did you know that many libraries won’t let homeless people in anymore? To that I say…
WHAT THE FOX? YOU BENCHES!
I do have a thank you for all of you guys who read my blog. It has been four weeks (today) since I got zero views on my blog. What does this mean? That at least one of you or some internet creep has been creeping. I feel special that you creep, and you should feel lucky you can creep…because you’re not homeless.
“Oh my god, Telea, back to this AGAIN?”
Yes, ma’am or sir. I have a fixation on homeless people. Like, a weird, non-sexual fetish, which destroys the use of the word ‘fetish’ anyway. Our list of five today is going to be semi-informational!
Five famous people who were once homeless.
1. Jim Carrey. Oh my god, I totally didn’t know that. Apparently, he and his family were traveling Canada in a yellow VW Van and camping at various locations. He also spent time in the back yard of his older sister, Patricia Carrey. I mean, they weren’t homeless for long, but homeless nonetheless. Of course, this is the classier form of homeless in which you at least have a vehicle.
2. Halle Berry. Best known for being hella hot, the beginning of her career was rather shaky. Basically what went down was that when she moved to New York to become famous, her mother didn’t support her and wouldn’t send her any money. Halle Berry slept in a homeless shelter. Yes, they can be just like us. Lucky she was hot and talented, or she might be dead.
3. Charlie Chaplain. I don’t know, you guys might have known this. This one is really cool, in my own personal opinion. He lived on the streets of London as a child after his father died and his mother suffered a mental breakdown. It’s the classic Oliver Twist story, innit? Now, I can’t think of one person I know who doesn’t know the late, great, Charlie Chaplain.
4. Kurt Cobain. Best known for leading the band ‘Nirvana’, this inspirational (and drug-addled) man, spent quite a while living in cardboard boxes and underneath a bridge in Aberdeen. Crazy stuff, just too crazy.
5. Sylvester Stallone. As far as I can tell, his homeless story is kinda famous, but I’m gonna tell it anyway! He spent three weeks sleeping in the Port Authority Bus Station, then he saw an ad paying 100 bucks a day for helping with a movie (Party at Kitty and Stud’s – 1970) and he worked there for two days so that he could get the hell out of that bus station.
“So, a lot of Celebrities were famous. So what, Telea? What’s your point?”
Well, though there are a few (many) success stories that inspire us to get off of our sad, homely, homeless asses and do something about it, I would like to say that this doesn’t always happen. In fact, a large percentage (most) of homeless people don’t go anywhere. If you have the room and the trust to help shelter one of these people, I really think you should.
That’s all I’m saying.
