Friday October 5 2012


Waking up shortly after 1 p.m.

Peach. Orange Juice.

Concocting a red bean dish to simmer in the crock-pot for 8 hours. Onions make me cry.

Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Hummus. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea. Coconut Water.

Watching Monument Ave. (1998).

Skype chat with Aysena. This conversation is full of love and sweetness. Enamored by each other’s lips. She’s bouncy and slinging her long black hair across her face as a shy gesture. I mimic her with a pink airline blanket.

Meeting up with Anthony and Kelley at AMC by Lynnhaven Mall to catch the 6:20 showing of The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). Sitting next to Anthony. I notice Kelley, on his left side, hold out her hand and Anthony grab hold of it immediately. I hold out my hand in hopes of the same and Anthony grabs hold of it immediately. While I’m watching the movie I find myself teary eyed and emotionally engaged. I read this book a long time ago and remember its mood having a lasting effect on my life. The film achieves everything I remember about the story.


The movie’s over. Outside with Anthony waiting for Kelley to get out of the bathroom. He turns to me and points out to the courtyard in front of the mall, “Friday night. Consumer America!”

Back home. The red beans are almost done cooking in the crock-pot. I start steaming some rice along with String Beans and Carrots. After all is said and done I congregate Anthony, Kelley, Kevin, and Richie around the dinner table and we enjoy the Red Beans and Rice as a family. Sipping on a bottle of Smithwick.

In my room. Getting the blog ready for its long awaited comeback after a whole year of not posting.


Learning Russian.

Watching a completely twisted documentary about a cannibalistic Japanese man.

Nutella and Peanut Butter Sandwich. Coconut Water.

Sleep 4 a.m.

[i] Logan Lerman. The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
