Waking up at 2 p.m.

Strawberry Toaster Pastries. Orange Juice.

Dropping my car off at the shop to get two new front tires. Using Kevin’s bike I ride over to the clubhouse in Linkhorn Bay to which I have a membership through Chanticleer. Running on the treadmill. While resting I chat with Aysena on VK. I sent her a picture of all the Russian girls using the machines.

She responds, “wooooow too many dolls in black. say to them privet kukolki”

Me: “haha. yeah ill say that to them. but the one on the right is cute.”

Her: “=(”

Me: “don’t worry you are much cuter, doll.”

Her: “i worry! coz you are cute and they could stole you from me”

Me: “hmf. haha. they are probably not interesting. they are probably boring girls.”

Her: “you dont know cunning russian blondy and blue eyed girls”

Me: “they have black hair. so i think its okay.”

Her: “haha. dont make me fool american boy ! )) i have super 6th feeling”

Me: “you mean 6th sense?”

Her: “exactly hehe”


Outside I witness a fighting match between two geese on the lake – they’re fierce and without any mercy. Their geese buddies cluck and cheer them on the sidelines.

Back home.

Lentil Spread Sandwich with Tomato. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Sweet Green Tea.

Watching Quantum of Solace (2008).

Browsing Elliott’s thrift store. He leaves two computers out back as donations for the house. Then, to Target for toilet paper and paper towels in bulk. There’s a couple in front of me in line and they seem to be having a minor disagreement on how they’re paying for their purchases. The dude is wearing a black leather jacket with a wallet chain and crew cut, a semi rough looking fellow. And the girl seems normal but a little feisty and whiny. After they move on, the girl at the register gives me a look like she’s glad they left.

“Creepy couple,” she exclaims and adds, “I’m glad I don’t have a boyfriend.” I just smile.


Elliott gets off work and we ride to Norfolk to hang out at Emily’s apartment. She’ll be moving to New York for a few months to be in an acting school and she invited select friends over. Snacking on Chips and Salsa and sipping on a beer. It’s kind of like a mini 1623 reunion, all the faces that used to frequent the former house I used to live in. Daniel White, Tyler Watts, Rocky, Joey, JP, Wes and Emily, and of course Ambrotious the cat. 

After a few hours Elliott and I leave. He accidently pokes his eye on his car’s antenna when walking around the side of it. It kind of sparks an overall irritation for him. He explains how he feels kind of disconnected from that bunch and has felt that over the past year. People grow and progress – they change. It’s a part of life as we age.

Back home.

Spaghetti with Onions, Mushrooms, Peppers, and Tomato Sauce.

Watching Haywire (2011).
