Let's see, where did we leave off?

Sick: I am just now starting to get over a sinus and chest cold that I have been suffering with for a week. Those remedies that I wrote about only worked for a short time period. I just needed some antibiotics and some sssslllleeeeeeeppppp. I now and starting to feel somewhat better. I very rarely get headaches, but this time I got some doozies.

Rambling Here: Have you ever traveled on a road and gotten to that proverbial fork-in-the-road? The decision seems quite simple, but the wrong choice could be disastrous. Or would it be disastrous. Maybe taking another road could be eduactional. Anyway, it doesn't have to be disastrous. Does it?

Dinner: Last Monday, David Lee had a nice dinner at his home, which basically celebrated the end of the non-stop folks who had been coming down. Very good food, as always, along with very interesting conversation. Thanks again, David. And the peach cobbler, as always, was great!

Flattery: I received an email from Dave E., who stayed with me at Monaga a while ago. He wanted to know if he could reprint a blog item I wrote, Naive or Stupid, in a blog that he writes. I get many compliments about the blog, and people telling me to write a book, but this comment from Dave E. pretty much sums up what I feel, "I do enjoy what you write in your blog. As others suggested, maybe it is time for a book. Though, as an editor, I know it is easy to have the idea but quite hard to create the end product."

I am one of those people who think that writing, painting, designing, or just creative people in general that are really great are born that way. Yes, you CAN learn, but the really great folk have something there that can't be taught.

Shock: I have heard that some of the people that I worked with have been reading the blog. I'm sure they are shocked. When I worked at my last job I didn't discuss my sexuality at all. I didn't hide it, but I didn't feel that it was something I wanted to discuss with people I was not particularly close to. Isn't it ironic that I now have a blog where, on days when it is not mired down in "black queen hysterics," that I talk about a lot of things that are important to me and maybe of a personal nature. Go figure.

Gifts: I get some great gifts and people are always asking me if I need something from the States. That is very nice. I have gotten some great gifts lately, magazines, Kiehl's products, Body Butters from the Body Shop, Doing the Butt #13 (by Enrique Cruz), along with assorted cheesecakes, parks sausages and other things that I can't find here. Just recently though, a trend seemed to be forming where I got 2 gifts, both opened. One, a good friend of mine bought me down an Entenmann's (sp?) Louisiana Crunch Cake, and another bought me down some Girl Scout Cookies. I'm sure you're thinking, now the last thing he needs is something to eat. Anyway, I'm always happy to get those things from home that can't be found here. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you thing about it), As I was given the cake, I was informed that there was a probelm. It seems that there was hunger pains and the cake started talking to them in the middle of the night, thus I was given a cake that was half-eaten. The good thing was they left a knife in the box so that I may polish it off quite quickly. When I was given the cookies I was also told that they just couldn't holdout and took a packet of the cookies out of the box. Let me say, I am honored to receive the gifts, and have even added the knife to my collection. (update: I could really use a box of the shortbread cookies, preferably not openened)

Blind Item: There is a rumor going around about an American who lives here and seems to have had a run-in with the police in his home. As the story has been related to me by several sources, some money/drugs were missing, a pistol pulled and someone's shoulder was grazed. The commotion caused a ruckus in the upscale neighborhood and the police were summoned. Said American is now telling all who will listen that he is now leaving the country to live full-time in the U.S. I wonder who it could be?

Hey Anthony, Glad to hear all appears to be well. It seems that we all caught something of a cold or DR flu. The dinner David hosted with Miss Vicki (compliments to the chef) was excellent. And the conversation was informative and very true.
As for me I am back in Boston and today it was cold and we had snow squalls. O' I think what I had not missed while in the DR for 2 week's.
As for now I am happy to see the updates to the blog. But I wonder if it is "Lucifer" that you are referring to.
See you in May.
Much love to ya, Scott~

what happened in 1906?

Anonymous said...

The ALL CAPS ANONYMOUS comments sounds a lot like Lucifer hand, what with claiming to be a christian and God working thru him to be an instrument of harmony. Girl that is like telling my black ass to turn white. Lucifer can no more preach harmony in the name of GOD than a baboon can sing the Star Spangled Banner. Lucifer, if you want to remain anonymous, you best get "La Bruja" to write your blog scripts, so you don't reveal yourself. You have been warned, you need to leave town while you can. It seems the neighbors are fed up with your crazyness. You know the rich rule the country where you live and they can pay enough to do anything. The neighbors called the police and your fast talking and rudeness or should we say maybe the US Embassy had to come to your rescue again like they did when you spat in that DR government officials face. In any case, life goes on and so does the fude, if that is what it is. As I understand it, folks just want to be left alone to live a peaceful life in the DR without DRama.

I deleted the last comment. Again, if you're going to come for me, come with your name. You don't need some alcoholic from Atlanta to do your dirty work. I keep saying this, but you don't understand. I will say it again, THIS IS MY BLOG and I can write what I like.

How about these:

At what Univ. did you earn your "doctorate?"
When do you finally take over the Venezia?
What happened to your B&B?
Your restaurant?
What happened to the people purchasing your bar?
What happened to you purchasing the space next door to Jay-Dee's?
How much money have you laundered this month?

Shall I go on?

Has every one forgotten about DR. LEON's performance last year on Valentines day outside of Jay-Dees? The crazy bitch was livid because one of her "MEN" was in Jay-Dees and she had been barred from entering. She took a metal baseball bat with her to Jay-Dees and started hitting bouncers and Taxi Drivers outside of Jay-Dees. This was at about 2:00 am and she was screaming outisde when the neighbors around Jay-Dees opened the windows and starting shooting off guns to get her to stop. The police came and she left but it was a really nasty scene! That psychotic bitch is gonna end up dead in a gutter in Santo Domingo someday soon!

I hope she has a open ticket to leave town quick, as things start to heat up she might have to sneak out of town. Go Girl, leave, leave, leave. I'm sure some high ranking officials have already staked claim to your house.

Monaga said...

Sweety,

You are such a lying lowdown motherfucker it is not even funny. When people first met you you were a nurse, then you became a doctor. Then you were only 37 years old (can you imagine?).

You have alienated everyone here and NO ONE likes you. All you hear is, "I went to the bar and there were more employees there than clients. There is never anyone there."

Why do you think you are NEVER invited to any personal function of any American living here? Because you are hated, that's why!

I know, I know, it is easy to blame me for your misfortune. You are constantly worried about what I'm doing, or try your best to scandalize my name. Why hasn't it worked?

Now, why are you hated so? Could it be:

- You have lied to everyone you ever met here
- Bought the bar from Lawrence and told him he could stay until he got it together, then you did everything in your power to make him leave immediately. Even to the point of putting his dog in the streets.
- Or, could it be you inviting people to your house and then charging them for drinks and food. Or telling them they talked with some buggarone and now owed you some money.
- Or, it could be because you make dates with people and then don't show up. Promising to take them to the airport and not showing up making people miss their flight.
- Or, it could be taking AIDS drugs from a doctor, promising that you will give them out for free, but then trying to gouge people who desperately need the medicines.
- Or, it could be when you sit up in your bar drunk, inferring that another American living here didn't get their residency because they are HIV positive.

There are so MANY more things, but those just popped right off my head.

Remember, when you told me you were going to sue me for slander/libel. I would welcome it, it would be great to see you in a courtroom putting your hand on a bible saying you will tell the truth.

LOL!

One more thing...Dr. Leon (if he is a doctor) needs to change the way he dresses. The last time I saw him he had a headrag on and he fucking looked like Aunt Jamima or a Voodoo witch from Haiti. Anthony is right...all of us Americans who have met you despise you and will not spend our money in your bar. You do not make us welcome at all. With all your damn money you could at least dress to the level of the poor Dominicans that live there but you need a personal stylist because you have no taste. What good is all your money if you dress like a crackhead living in the streets?

Anonymous said...

There seems to be some question about Leon and if he is REALLY a Doctor. I just called 1-800-Doctor and he is not listed there as a medical doctor. I then went to the American Medical Association he is not list there as well. I think we can safely assume he is NOT a doctor. All of you in DR don't go to him for a circumcision! HA HA

WOW, THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SET THIS BLOG OFF. THE FIRST TIME YOU GOT 60 COMMENTS I THINK . THIS TIME YOU HAVE REACHED THIRTY. I AM NOT DR.

Nice try on the attempt to deflect attention from the "Good" Doctor, but it won't work. We know your writing style and words. Lets throw more gas on the fire!!!!! I heard that lucifer in a headrag told people (while she was drunk) that she is here laundering money and before she moved here had to come here on a regular basis to receive the money as it arrived. If this is NOT true, then how does one explain the financial backing of so many failed or failing businesses. As mentioned in the pervious comments, what happened to the restuarant on your 3rd floor? Why is it that you have MORE employees in your bar than clients? Here is a good one!!! What happened with the concierge/tour desk at the Hilton Hotel??? How can you afford to purchase a bar, gut it, redo the interior, run all the clients away, then decide that it will no longer be a hustler bar and gut it again and redo the entire building and employ a full staff 7 nights a week and still have not clients in your bar???? It is one of two things, your investors are stupid and like throwing money down a rat hole OR YOUR ARE LAUNDERING MONEY!!!
Wooooooccccchhhhh, like to much lighter fluid on a hot bbq grill.

Anonymous said...

I know of at least one person that left the states and went to DR expecting to go to CUBA, on the trip that did not happen. He never saw or spoke with Dr. Leon, or Nurse Practitioner Leon. He only got a call from Angie on his last day in the country saying that Dr. Leon was in a meeting and would not have time to receive him. I have also heard from Leon's mouth that he is a Doctor of Psychology and a Nurse Practitioner which gives him the authority to prescribe medications. He's never mentioned were he got his training from in either of these areas.

Anonymous said...

I've just returned from shopping and I know of at least one other American that is buying him things and sending him money. I always call the other American before I buy something so that we don't end up buying the same thing at the same time. If someone else is supporting him as well; I say go for it. If you want to send him something his western union number is 908897025. He checks his account often and I'm sure that he would welcome anything that you send. Have a good day DOCTOR.

Why do you think that Rafael let's you climb on his back, because he likes your head rag? Give me a fuckin break, it is because you bought him a car.

Are you sure you took your medication today? Make sure you check the dosage.

Also, why did you move here? Because as ugly as you are you could never find anyone to lay with you in the States.

The real reason why that monster move to the DR is because the FBI is on to her ask here when we the last time you graced the States?

Monaga said...

Thanks for your concern about my health and weight, but my comment still stands, you are one lying motherfucker.

How can you get anything for free when nobody, least of all the buggarones, don't even cross the threshold of your overpriced bar.

Maybe they go to your restaurant? Or maybe you meet men when you are handling the reservations at the Venezia. Oh, that's right, that was another of your schemes that didn't come to pass. Could it be possibly that you were meeting men when you tried to turn your home into a brothel? Unfortunately, the neighbors wouldn't have any of that.

I know, I know. You met men on your recent trip to Cuba. I'm sorry, that didn't happen either. It was just another one of the figments of your very lively imagination.

I don't know what I was thinking. With YOUR absolutely stunning shape, along with your classic beauty, not to mention your tissue paper hair, I'm sure the only reason you bought that car for Rafael is because he was in love with you. Remember when you tried to hire his mother to work for you? Even she couldn't stand your lying ass.

It is a shame what you have done to Bar Phoenix. You took an icon and just destroyed it. Yes, it looks lovely, but you destroyed the character, and along with you sitting up there drinking and lying to everybody, it just became too much for people to stomach. I hate to break this to you, but the French Ambassador is NEVER going to come and visit.

Oh, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

"Dr." Leon,

this has been fun, but I'm afraid we have come to end. Though I enjoy your comments immensely, it is time to move on.

As always, I get the last word. I know you have nothing else to do but to monitor the blog and leave anonymous comments, but unfortunately you don't answer any of the charges against you. I mean really, how can you?

Anyway, you should be trying to get ready and open your tired bar tonight. I know you are glad that the Sports Bar is closed tonight and tomorrow, maybe you can get somebody to come in and pay those exhorbitant prices.

It is always fun playing with you. See you on the blog!
