Waking up around noon.

Hot Cinnamon Oat Bran with Brown Sugar, Blueberries, and Almond Milk.

Watching The Rum Diary (2011).

Double Egg Sandwich with Mayonnaise and Tomato. Honey Oolong Tea.

Meeting up at the storage unit with Stephanie and Sarah (she drove from Richmond). Running through the Vaginasaurs set and introducing a new song.


Stef and I stop at Five Guys for the French Fries.


In route to Norfolk. My car’s still not done so I’m at the wheel of Stephanie’s yellow 85’ Mercedes – Stef in the passenger seat – Kevin and Richie in the back. Some of the latest You’re Jovian tunes blaring on the stereo. Snacking on some Popcorn and a Banana. Stef encourages us all to yell enthusiastic primal screams.

Stef: “C’mon, Kevin! Scream!”


Stef: “Richie?”

Richie: “Howl!”

Stef: “Alright, Robert.”

I pump out a deafening little girl scream, “AhHhHhHhH!”


There at the venue, The Jewish Mother Backstage, for You’re Jovian’s CD release party. Sipping on a bunch of Lionshead beers – hanging out – waiting for the show to start. Elliott’s uncle rocks out a one-man band rockabilly jam.


Meanwhile, Emily Hill and I have an intense brother-to-sister conversation upstairs in one of the booths. We haven’t had much of a friendship since she moved out of 1623 and checked into Norfolk some years ago. But we’ve seen each other whenever there’s a convenient collision. Wesley just broke up with her Sunday so she’s in a quite a state of affairs. I offer as much of a sound mind as I can. The rockabilly music stops. So it’s time to set up for The Vaginasaurs. We go on. After the first song a string on Sarah’s guitar breaks. Elliott provides us with his spare. Then, You’re Jovian kills it with a powerhouse set.

Tuna Lettuce Wraps for dinner.

After the show we all reconvene at Wesley’s apartment for talks and drinks. We don’t stay long though.

Back home. It’s Margot’s birthday (after midnight) and she requested my presence tonight. I don’t have any reason not to oblige. She picks me up and brings us back to her condo.


She puts on a thin lavender nightgown and plops down on the bed facedown. I hop on top and rub her back a little bit.  

Her: “You want to have sex with me don’t you?”

Me: “Not necessarily. I could be fine sleeping.” (This is not true. I’m actually sexually frustrated.)

She retorts, “Wait. You don’t want to have sex with me???”

Me: “Haha. Well, of course I do.”

This is of course her passive-aggressive way of saying to me I want to make love to you. My arms around her chest. She props up her blooming bottom. And so the sexual healing goes from there. I can’t explain how ecstatic this makes me feel. We maneuver through different positions. I’m finished. She’s perched on top of me.

I look up at her, “That was so good. I needed that. We have a inseparable bond.”


Me: “Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?”

Her: “Yes. More than once.”

Me: “Well I’m telling you now.”

We lie down in the hot room – fan turning and blowing our wanting bodies. She starts up cute rumblings about going to get food.

Me: “Now don’t start that again.”

She continues in a baby-like voice.

Me: “I forget what happens in this part of the script...oh yeah! We shut up and go to sleep.”


And forward we go into dreamland...
