Waking up around 3:45 p.m. to Margot’s lovely face—excited eyes and big bright smile.

“Time to get up!” “Play! Play with me.” “This is what it’s gonna be like with kids—waking up daddy.”

Breakfast: English Muffin with Peanut Butter. Orange Juice. Zinc, Vitamin D.

Google work.

Work at China Wok. One of the drivers called off so I’m stuck working a full 4-hour shift, which is good—making money tonight.

Lunch: Grilled Cheese with Tomato. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Talking with Anthony, “I was at work all day and thinking to myself I can’t wait to get home and drink a cold crisp glass of Honey Green Tea.

Kevin is impersonating Kenneth to the max.

Anthony and I take a drive though some neighborhoods to scour for places to rent. Further down Oceana we find one. As we’re passing this Baptist church Anthony comments on how much he likes the green and yellow rectangle stained glass windows. I agree on the aesthetics.

Anthony: “I just want to throw a brick through it. And not because I hate Christians but just because I think it would look good.”

In lots of ways he reminds me of Dean’s character in On the Road. He’s the catalyst to most of my adventures lately. And that was the way of it with Sal (Keroauc) in the book. I recall Margot showing mild signs of jealousy over the time I’ve spent with the kids in the house or him as opposed to spending time with her. She referred to Anthony and I as “gay lovers”. In reality, we’re just two heterosexual males who get it and, shall we say, KNOW TIME.

Back home—organizing. Starting the nostalgic process of taking down the decorations on the walls. “There’s a story for each one.” Each sign, every one of Phil’s drawings, each painting, each quote, each poster. It’s a sad feeling to remove what’s been such a stable part of this house.

Eating Blueberry Yogurt.

Continuing to organize.

Newspaper route.

Chicken and Lemongrass Spring Rolls and a Carrot.

Listening to Coast to Coast AM as usual but not really following—got a few songs and thoughts stuck in my head.

Eating a bowl of Frosted Shredded Wheat cereal.

Watching Seven Days [2010].

Sleep 7:30 a.m.
