Sunday September 12 2010


Suddenly I wake up at 5 p.m. on the dot. Realizing I have to be at work at 5, I snap out of it forgetting about my dream entirely. I jump out of bed, and grab an English Muffin and some Blueberry Tea.

Work at China Wok.

It’s a slow night.

Trying to figure out how I slept so long. I crashed around 7:30 a.m. last night making it about 9 hours of sleep. Maybe it was the combination of reading the DOOM novel and the beer I had with it. Alcohol tends to make your sleep heavy.

Having to deliver an order over near Harpers Road, so I make a quick stop at the house for a hard-boiled Egg, Salt N Vinegar Chips, and some Honey Green Tea.

Number of Non-Tippers: 0

My boss sends me home an hour early.


Stretching and exercising while listening to the Surfer Blood album.

Learning Russian on Rosetta Stone.

In the kitchen. Anna is asking me about honey and what it means when it’s unfiltered.

Jamil hasn’t seen Apocalypto, so I put it on.

Eating leftover Shrimp Sinigang.

James and Rocky are commenting back and forth on facebook. I invite them over for Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I add a little extra flour to the mix, which makes them extra plump.

Anna puts on these new pink and white toe socks she got from T.J.Maxx made from this incredibly soft material. James gets inspired and wants a photo of it on his phone.

Dumpster Dive at Trader Joe’s (see above photo): Apples, Oranges, Green Peppers. Squash, Grapes, Plums, Apple Grape Juice, Hummus, Pesto, Spanish Cheese, Eggs, Soymilk, Raw Sugar, Chicken Breasts, Mahi Mahi, and Shrimp with Jasmine Rice.

James wants to watch Total Recall, so he puts it on.

He tells me about some dreams he’s had recently: waking up and somebody shaved his entire beard off, insects taking over the world, crying about a cat that’s about to be put to sleep.

Washing all the finds. Talking with Art in the kitchen. He tells me about a factory he used to work for in Belarus that put out palettes of yogurt treats that were only about to expire in a month. The employees were allowed to take them home.

Sipping on Coffee and reading until Dave (Paleo) shows up He’s driving from Wilmington, NC and needs to crash on the couch tonight. He tells me he’s on a 9-month tour after which I noticed he seems rather road worn.

Recording at the unit.

Eating 1 and ½ Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich and a Plum.


Sleep 7:30 a.m.
