DREAM: Temporarily I’ve joined a new band that Kevin has started. He plays guitar and sings, someone’s on drums, and I’m on bass. I have to learn all the parts before the house show tonight. Later, I’m on stage playing acoustic guitar covering a Bright Eyes song, “This is the first day of my life...” Forgetting the lyrics. Someone helps out by mouthing out the words.

Waking up around 11 a.m.

Banana. Supersonic Breakfast Burrito (Egg, Cheese, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, and Tater Tots). Orange Juice. Zinc (50 mg).

All day shift at China Wok.

It’s hot and the omni-present pollen is agitating.

Peanut Butter English Muffin. Pomegranate Cherry Ade.

Let the rain fall down and wash away this yellow pestilence.

Grapes. Goldfish.

The day keeps going and going. Nothing special. Just me, comedy radio, and the Chinese food.

Kevin and I have a meme battle...

Finally off, back home.

Tilapia Fillet. Vegetable Lo Mein.

Fortune cookie: “Praise, like gold and diamonds, owes its value to its scarcity.”

I had planned on attending Stephanie’s Dracula birthday party to which most everyone was going. I decline because I feel physically exhausted. Instead I bum around, doing the dishes, watching flicks, and organizing music.

Waffles with Hazelnut Spread. Coconut Milk.

Off to sleep kind of early just before 2:30 a.m.

I wake up to a soft persistent knocking at my door. It’s almost 3:30. Who else could it be. I stumble out of bed and let Margot in. She was trying to call me.

Me: “Sorry I was sleeping.”


Me: “Why did you call me so much?”

Her: “I get scared. And I missed you.”

We cuddle up but almost immediately fall to sleep.
