@Cocoa– I just read your message and cried. Thank you, I've been walking around numb just numb. From what I understand, you have to email Ellen on her show page. I guess she has something pre-set up, so people can email her about people…oh, that sentence did not make sense.
@Cocoa, you're very kind, thank you. I just don't know. I don't know anything anymore. I've tried really hard for over a year. I'm the only person I know who goes to a job interview, they get ready to hire me and the day they make the decision, the company shuts down. The job interview I went to today…found out it doesn't start 'till late March.I can't get a break.
@Blondie, call me Cocoa, it's shorter and anyone who's chatted with me more than once calls me that 😉 You've clearly been through hell, just trying to get a little help. I suggested you put the word out through Enty because @Trainrides, I believe it was, received help for her family in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. Some of the CDaN community came through for her and I believe they would for you too, if they knew your situation. Enty's email address is [email protected]. It's worth a try. Don't give up, Blondie-boo!
Oh, Blondie, that sucks large. Your friend was a dink to hang up on you like that. A charity, like Madlyb suggested, is all I can think of. Or donations from random strangers – email Enty and put the word out. I'm hoping you get your miracle!
@Fancy Girl! I have a 9 year old son that is darn near perfect. My 17 year old daughter was born to make my life miserable!
@LowKey, thank you, but I couldn't even afford to send her to you.
Blondie! – I'm so sorry. If you need somebody to take care of your pup till you get back on your feet give me a shout (I'm in Ohio)
@Madlyb- thanks for the suggestion, but I can't do it now. I can't explain why, but I can't. I appreciate your concern, you don't even know me, and I really do appreciate it. You have no idea how much. I called a friend this evening to tell him what had happened in court and that I was going to be homeless. His reply, "I'm so sorry. I really am. Best of luck." Then he hung up.Oh well.
@Blondie – have you thought of starting a donation site, like a Pay Pal? I can't give much, but I can give something.
@Blondie – That's a scary thing. I can't believe that there isn't some sort of safety net for you, especially in NYC! Have you tried Catholic Services? They are awesome, and you don't have to be Catholic to get help. There's no way you can stay on the streets!
Thanks CeeKay, if only it were true. I have less than 10 days to come up with the back rent, I have tried every agency in the city, my friends have even written the Ellen Show. After today's court hearing and the ruling, I know now that everything that I have worked for has been for nought. I'd need a miracle in less than 10 days. I think, well, I don't know what to think right now.
I absolutely believe that things will work out for you, Blondie. The universe will provide, and I'm not trying to be New Age-y or religious or whatever here, but I just find that things get taken care of when they need to be. Keep us posted. 🙂
thanks, 10 days before I hit the streets.
Blondie, I'm so sorry to hear this. 🙁 I wish you all the best.
@CocoaBeachBunny thanks@Madlyb– As Bones once said to Captain Kirk, "They're all dead, Jim, they're all dead." Trying to make light of the situation. No, I have no family. I have a few friends, but cannot stay with them. I've been trying to get a One Shot deal for over a year. I'm in NYC. I went on a job interview after court–I've been interviewing like mad for months, found out that the job doesn't start till mid March.I'm pretty much screwed.Sorry–I know this is a gossip site, but my heart is breaking and I just don't know any more.
@Blondie – do you have friends or relatives you can stay with? Whereabouts are you? 🙁
Yes, more than a few times, but never more than a few days. You don't want to run away from home in Albuquerque at 15. It can be a rough town.
I'm sorry to hear that, Blondie! :((
No, but dreamed about it for years and sometimes still do.
7of11Lucky betch! ;^)
@Renolol. I hear ya. My 19yo son wasn't a problem at all. Smooth sailing.
My 7yo daughter is gonna give me hell in about 6 years. I will pay ten fold. I just know it. The drama will b epic. Trust me.Smh
Twice. The first time I was lured back with chocolate chip cookies (I was 8) and the second time no one knew because it was the middle of the night. But I was cold, bored and had nowhere to go, so I snuck back in the window and acted like nothing had happened the next day (I was 14 that time.)
I threatened to go live with my grandparents once, when I was about 16. My mother offered to let me. I shut-up about it real quick after that. *shudder*
Does sneaking out to the back porch to drink MD 20/20 (grape) with your neighbors after your mom fell asleep count?
Yes, thank God.
My mom was never home so there was no need to run from a parental unit. Now if I wanted to see her I'd need to cab it to the Holiday Inn lounge on Craighead and Tryon. (And no, she wasn't "working" – maybe "working it".)
When i was sixteen i ran away with 2other girls. Fed up with school and dentist and parental rules. Was gone about 2 days. I put my parents thru hell, broke their hearts. It is a huge regret i have to this day. I never talk about it. And to their credit, my parents never once brought it up. Very bad decision.
I'm an adult and I WISH I could run away from home!
I tried to when I was six, but my suitcase was too heavy.
Yes, I took a cheese sandwich & my hairbrush. I was 9. Back within an hour though. I didn't know where to go.
Do you even know where igNORI is right now? You know, your baby that you only trot out for photo ops?
F'in' teenagers. I've got one for sale myself.
@fancy stole my story (except it wasn't an abandoned house, it was my friend's car). :b
The wisdom of youth is the main reason I pity Bieber.
Yes. Mom tried to make me break up with older boyfriend. Spent ONE cold night n abandoned house to show her ass who was in charge of me. Returned home the next day for dinner hungry and cold. My mom just rolled her eyes. Was 16. FIN…((fade to black))
TTM–yup lol and told my parents she was sleeping over at her friends house across the road—meanwhile she was in Montreal and the cops called my dad and he had to drive from Toronto to pick her up!
Rob, I just had a baby and I'm still losing the baby weight. What's your excuse, fatty? You look like you could be carrying quadruplets!!
I ran away almost every day when I lived in Kelowna. It is WAY easier to run away when it is warm alla time and you are surrounded by orchards. On the days I wasn't running away I was sewing backpacks to pack everything into. True story
Wha?? Really, Derek?
I threatened to run away once. I think I was maybe 6? I had my note written and stuff packed. As much as a 6 year old can pack stuff. My mom saw me as I stormed towards the door and asked where I was going. I Told her I was running away.She said"Take me with you, I want to run away too"
all of a sudden it wasn't a fun idea anymore
How long did it take you to drool out that "clever" retort?
I just turned around and saw you and your huge bubble butt, but that's it. And by the way, I did lose some weight with hard work and dedication, not surgery. Why don't you go get more fat injections in your lumpy huge ass?
Kourtney! Be nice to Rob. He's sensitive.
when i was 14 I did but only made it to the front stair of my house. I realize i didnt know where the fuck i was going to go. Se I went back in lol
Woah, Kourt! Why are you coming for me? I apologized already for insinuating that Scott knew about the German clinic yesterday
Also, check out the Mad Hueys!!
Speaking of, you can't miss Robs ass. It enters the room before he does.
Cry me a river Brody. Here's a thought,get a real job. Then maybe people will notice your slacker ass.
Oh, Rob. Remember how you were bragging about losing 15 pounds? Look behind you, you'll find it!
