DREAM: In a town house. There’s a white cat. For some reason I think it’s a good idea to decapitate his head with a kitchen knife. The cat struggles a little bit. I notice a little blood come out. It’s alarming to me so I stop cutting even though there is only a sliver left to do. Later, I come back to the cat and his head is back in place but it doesn’t look stable. Mickey Rourke, from the movie The Wrestler (2008) walks through the door. He picks up the cat and starts petting him harshly. He’s a big muscular man so I’m unsettled by this. I warn him not to rub too hard. The cat seems to be okay.
3:30 p.m. I get up. I regret not getting up earlier when I had the chance. Too much sleep.
Breakfast: Egg and Cheese Burrito. Toast with Blackcurrant Jam. Orange Mango Juice. Zinc and Alfalfa.
I ride my bike to Big Lots, Kmart, Target, and Trader Joe’s.
Waiting in line at Kmart, I observe a Jamaican family in front of me. The woman, who is huskier and bigger than the man, carries the groceries, as the kids play around the bottom level of the magazine rack. The man sifts through the magazines. He stops and stares at a beautiful half naked Caucasian girl on the cover of a tattoo issue. He holds his gaze for quite a while as the kids continue playing and the wife still waiting in line. He doesn’t seem ashamed in the least bit or concerned with anyone around him. He studies her pose then snaps out of it and scolds one of the kids, “Put that back now. We’re not getting that.” The line moves. The clerk checks out all the items. It’s his turn as he swipes the credit card.
People are watching footage in the living room that Phil filmed on his camera.

Practice at the storage unit with Chad and Chris. We work out a punchy new song.

I share the Fried Zucchini and Squash with Margot, Art, Brianna, and Ryan.

How good it feels to relieve that sexual itch.
I go to the storage unit again to practice.
Sleep around 7 a.m.
