So I was waiting outside the PAVSA office on their luch break yesterday looking at brosures and read, "How to spot a fake crisis pregnancy center."

No way. I didn't know about fake crisis pregnancy centers. Bet I could spot one though, bet it's real easy, actually.

I am having no trouble recognizing the fake crisis women's shelter I am staying at presently, staying now for the sake of my roommate, I wouldn't leave that girl there in the basement alone, no way.(We talked about it, and agree that a fool would have to be pulling self sacrifice to jump the two of us together in our sleep, even with a gun, bitch, you'd end up dieing.)

Here are some drafts of some letters I'm writing to staff at Dabinuigan. They need to get some things sorted out.

Dear what's your name director back from two weeks off work,

I find it assaultive the way you approached me the morning we spoke.

I see that you have no qualifications to have dealings with persons like myself, people you are being employed to help. You should be fired for sure, but put in jail probably.

Do you find it rude to say to me, "If you don't like our coffee here, buy your own."

You are speaking to a homeless person in domestic crisis with no currency or credit, why would you say that to me?

And it's not that I don't like your coffee, it is that Donna the staff-person is fucking with the coffee we have here making it undrinkable for me, which is different than just me being a preferencial bitch, bitch.

You say to me "We are on a budget here."

You deffend Donna and say that there is nothing wrong with what she did to me.

You dismiss it and say that, oh it was not deliberate of her, and I just have the wrong idea about what happened.

And the last thing you say to me as I slip out the gate is "Do your chores."

Well what do you think was right with any of what you said? Where did you learn to handle a situation like that? Not school. Not from a professional.

I have heard all the same things from abusers. Do you realize that what you did was domestic abuse?

I sorta need to stay here to survive so I have to endure you being horrible to me. I've seen it before, just not at a shelter where you are being funded to make what you are doing stop, it's weird. Hard to be dealing with right now, but it's whatever.

Here's a note I wrote to leave on the diningroom table last night, but didn't.

Dear first person to give me a hard time about chore performance,

Do you realize that I cannot deliver 100% success for you?

Do you realize I am doing a good job, doing my part to keep it clean, am having a post-trauma crisis, and am being bullied by you?

So lay off all of us, please.

Continued on reverse...

Dear Donna,

I am going to take a minute to address this coffee mix-up of yours the other morning.

Donna, I had just I stepped into the kitchen to make coffee for my roommate and I, to wake us up, get us going, when immediately you and Ann came into the kitchen all chatty smiles.

Ann jumped in and aked if she could fill the coffee grounds, from the house coffee in the canister for me, to which I replied not a chance.

You quickly dodged into the basement while I explained to Ann that I prefer Hils Bros Coffee, black as night, it used to be my dad's brand, the other coffee here does not have a therapeutic affect on me, it's not even coffee, I swear.

Let me try to explain to you now: Hils Bros is kosher coffee. Not gormet, not even premium, but kosher. It's coffee without pee in it. The other coffee in the canister is not kosher. It's not coffee. Hils Bros, kosher... other cofee,not kosher...do you understand?

So what you did, after learning how I feel about the coffee provisions, was take this house's kosher food, and combine it with this house's not-kosher food, making it all un-kosher. I can't drink that. Do you understand?

So now you will be made to admit that what you did was not right.

Certainly you are not going to argue that mixing figuratively clean and unclean food stuffs is the right thing to do. The only purpose for you combining our coffee supply was to fuck with me. No other reason for it. You could argue ignorance but you should probably be fired for being that way. If you argue that you do your job as you do because you don't realize, or don't know better, you should be terminated.

Dear Donna,

I further find it bizzare that you are, by your own self-praising admission, good at finding stuff in this house...

It makes me think that it's because you sorta hide stuff from us...like placing Ann's prefered popcorn spice on the top shelf out of her sight, and reach...why would you do that? Just moving stuff around? Organizing?

Dear Donna,

I think it's weird that you make a show of your contribution to this facilitie's two needle sewing kit selection.

I find it bizzare that you mention that you, yourself, brought your very own needle from home, and that your needle offering is superior to the other house option because of it's hole-size and durable construction.

It seems like you are pitching something hard, but I can't tell what it is. Yourself? Your favor? I don't need this.

Dear Donna,

Also you should know,

I found your response alarming when I suggested to you that I might instead choose to stop in my therapist's office, rather than call to speak with her for what was to be a teleconference.

That was alarm you were looking at on the face of Tina the Destroyer.

I found it alarming because why would an advocate encourage that I continue with phone-tag, and relayed communication with my therapist, when this is the very problem I've been having for a year. It is an established obstacle for me, and you speak only to disuade me from solving it.

You are good at chasing me out of the house discombobulated. I missed a physical therapy appointment the morning I woke up to the coffee-crisis. You are certainly not ignorant of what you do, and because I am in your binder as bipolar/post-trauma, what you are doing to me is a more punishable offense.

Here's some comic relief.

So all you people who consider the notion of guardian angels -

Don't you suppose they get tired of standing around together wishing you would take them out to do something fun? If they have to stay with you and make sure yer okay...and they are supreme beings with tremendous ability...they would get tired of standing around in their armor, with their hand resting on their hilts, rubbing their poor weary brows, just wishing for better work.

You've got to exercise yer angels.

Take yer angels on adventures. Get some exercise yourselves.

Take them shopping, or lurking on late street corners, something for them at all, just anything please they say. Less funny to them, I'm sure...guess that's whatever, too.

Dear Tina V Vernor the Destroyer,

Definitely seek as much help as you can, your mental state sounds like it could use an oil change. Save up them dollars you squeeze out of the Wabasha Bookstore and from selling your body on 1st St. Then, get to warmer climes. Maybe your coffee will start to taste better.

Thank you, The Turk. In my heart I am already walking toward Phoenix...I could prolly get my job back at the coffee shop, but even if it costs my whole bod I can't leave Duluth. You stay with the victim, you don't leave it to bleed out...I can't. Maintain pressure until the bleeding stops...however long that takes. Do you see the condition of Duluth? Would you leave your daughter that way? My tears.

Oh shit The Turk, you think I"m a prostitute. No, I don't sell my body on 1st St. I don't sell it...that's why all the raping...'cause I won't sell. They wouldn't have to rape me if I would sell it.
