Waking up just before 1:30 p.m.

Fruit and Nut Bar. Banana.

Dropping my car off at the Progressive service center for repairs caused from the sideswipe done by another driver. They give me a Chevy HHR rental to use in the meantime.

Then, to the bank to tweak some problems with a new credit card I just received in the mail and to discuss re-financing of my auto loan.

Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Hummus. Potato Chip Trio. Honey Green Tea.

Scheduling. Business.

Meeting with a new roommate.

Darren cooked up a curry dish with Steak, Broccoli, Peppers, Onions, and Rice. Sharing it at the card table with him and Devon.

It’s boy’s night out on the Friend’s School basketball courts. We compete in two 3-on-3 games with a misty rain in the air, slippery shoes, and knockout moves.

Back home.


Eating a bowl of Cheerios with Brown Sugar and Milk.

Rummaging through the clutter that has built up against the walls of the house, mainly the dining room. Paul Simon provides the soundtrack. Hanging up pictures torn down from the wrecking crew that plowed through here a few days ago. Sweeping. Cleaning. Organizing. Reaching far down into the forgotten cracks and crevices where lie hideous spider exoskeletons, old mix CDs encrusted with tamarind crystals, onion shavings, and lost paper notes with clever epiphanies.

Popcorn. Pear.

Watching Peacock (2010).

Sleep 5:30 a.m.
