Monday February 6 2012


Alarm went off at 11 a.m. but I find myself dozing off and getting out of bed in a jitter right at 11:30. I’m late for work.

All day shift at China Wok.

Strawberry Yogurt. Orange Juice.

Slow afternoon for deliveries.

Organizing the last of my music files. It feels so good to have it all in order now. It was a process that lasted three years...on and off. With over 8,900 songs in the library I’d say this is an accomplishment.

Egg Salad Sandwich with Tomato. Potato Chip Trio. Honey Oolong Tea.

Delivering an order to a kind old lady on Consolvo Court. She hands me two dollars in quarters as a tip and says, “I hope you don’t mind the change.”

Me: “Oh that’s fine. Thank you.”

As I drive away I notice one of the coins is not a quarter at all but a gold medallion with a comforting image of an angel engraved on it. She obviously did that on purpose. I laugh out loud in gratefulness. I wonder if she slips gold angels to all her visitors...

It’s generally slow for business tonight.

Off work.

Hot and Sour Soup. Spring Rolls.

Finishing The Double (2011).

I have Margot drop my car off at the shop with me. Then, back at her place for a bit...talking...sometimes arguing about love and unforgiving matters...then back to my place for sleeping. But I stay up and eat a bowl of Cheerios with Soymilk and Brown Sugar...the classical station on the radio...

After I’ve fallen asleep, at some point she gets up to go to the bathroom, then comes back and sneak attacks me with sex. Earlier I was coming onto her but to my dissatisfaction she wasn’t feeling it. I guess she felt the need for redemption...

Her: “You happy now?”
