Josiah wakes me up because the Safelight guy is here to replace my windshield.

Back to sleep.

Waking up again to pay the Safelight guy.

Back to sleep.

DREAM: Spontaneously, I decide to go to the bus station and leave for Mexico to a city called Olaro. The station resides inside a club called Barto’s. I purchase my tickets at the counter. I have a big honeydew melon in my book bag and some other fruit – concerned about it getting through customs. A Canon representative is standing next to me making a joke. I give Rocky three bags of mine and ask her to keep them safe while I am gone. Feeling scared about going to Olaro – imagining the hot night air, the bars, the Mexican locals, the language barrier, the women. Just outside Barto’s are a few Mexican cross dressers flamboyantly posing and talking. It’s going to be along wait until the bus leaves, so I go for a walk down the street. I notice my house nearby. It looks like a mansion – an old yellow brick building with lots of rooms, but I realize we only use the middle of the building as our home. A sign above the front entrance reads: “House of 1623” Walking further up the street, surrounded by insane asylums and mental hospitals. How come I never noticed this about our neighborhood? A crazy white guy comes up to me with some sort of needle that works like a gun. He’s going to shoot me with it. But another crazy man that’s black and looks like a mechanic approaches us and tells the other man to shoot me in the big toe because that’s the most painless spot to be shot at. Just as he’s about to pull the trigger on my big toe, the black man flicks another needle that bounces off my shoes and pierces right into the crazy man’s stomach leaving him paralyzed. The black man saved me. I thank him and find out he’s a handyman and very good at fixing anything. I head back to Barto’s in hopes that the bus is ready to leave for Olaro by now. It isn’t. I notice other people waiting in sitting booths. Julie Hundley is there, wearing a loose orange sweater and a big bright smile as usual. I’m excited she’s riding on the same bus.

Waking up at 2:30 p.m. Andy Mellon is in my face. “Hey Robert! This bed is kind of wobbly.”

Breakfast: Instant Oatmeal and Flax Seed. Orange Juice. Zinc, Vitamin E, Alfalfa Grain.

Shipping two medicine cabinets at Pakmail.

Lunch: Tuna Salad Sandwich with Lettuce. Salt N Vinegar Chips. Mango Oolong Tea.

Meeting a lady in the Bank of America building in Town Center to sell a wireless speaker from Brookstone.

Doug and I meet at Panera to create some designs for Musicplayer. We accidentally stumble upon a cool idea for a Musicplayer emblem.

Practicing with Kal at the storage unit.

Sharing Berger Cookies.

Dinner: Black Beans and Rice. Spinach Salad. Garlic Naan Bread.

Rocky and Josiah are making masks with different colored feathers for Color’s video shoot tomorrow.

Jamil, Roman, and I clean up the attic and rig a cable cord onto the door that way a person can close and open it from inside the attic.

At some point, Emily and I realize Ambrotious is missing. We search the whole house and outside but he’s nowhere to be found.

Eating a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats.

I decide to randomly check the front porch for Ambrotious. And there he is peering out from underneath the van bench with his big brown eyes as if he was saying, “Where have you been?

Finish watching Mad Max.

Sleep around 5:15 a.m.
