Monday June 25 2012


Waking up around 11:15 a.m.

Banana. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.


Grilled Cheese with Tomato. Tortilla Chips with Salsa and Avocado. Honey Oolong Tea.

Reading some excerpts from Adbusters magazine...

I text Kristin the photo about the perfume experiment.

She responds, “It resonates. I am totally a victim of the placebo effect and I totally would probably be persuaded by the masses.”

Me: “most people would. initially no one likes the feeling of disagreement.”

The topic of sex comes up...

Her: “It helps me clear my mind, which is common. When I have sex I’m focused on sex and nothing else, I am a very unfocused person.”

Me: “unsexual things are hard for you to focus on.”

Her: “More so than sexual things but not entirely...”

Me: “it makes sense.”

Her: “I don’t know maybe I just like to act/feel sexual but it’s a big part of who I am.”

Me: “I think sex has personal significance for you. you need it for different reasons...more than just biological...and more than hormonal. besides procreation and fleshly desire it comes as no surprise that people use sex for various psychological reasons.”

The day continues.

A storm is coming. Apparently there is a tornado warning for Newport News and Hampton.


For about an hour before the dinner rush the rain pours down in waterfalls. Of course, this causes a rise in business, as predicted. But you don’t see me complaining. I can deal with a few soaking pitiful moments for good tips.

Finally off work.

Tofu with Broccoli, Snow Peas, Onions, and Rice in Garlic Sauce. Wing Walker Pale Ale.

Watching Sneakers (1992).

Fortune cookie says, “Happier days are definitely ahead for you. Struggle has ended.”

I have to drop the rental car I’ve been using off at Enterprise. And hopefully my wagon will be completely repaired and in fine condition by tomorrow evening. I take the nice 20-minute walk back to the house. Smoking on a clove and talking to myself – reassuring myself that I’ve been making good decisions about life in general all things considering.

Time for sleep and relaxation.

Sleep at 3:30 a.m.
