Starburst House built by Janice (Feb 16 2014) (1)[i]

Waking up at 11 a.m.

Cinnamon Oatmeal with Cranberries, Plant Fusion Protein, Brown Sugar, and Almond Milk. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

Egg Sandwich with Mayo and Tomato. Everything Pretzel Thins. Honey Black Tea. Lemon Pastry.

It's a typically busy day here at the restaurant. Driving around the city non-stop. Enriching myself with Radiolab podcasts. 

Off work and back home.

Fried Chicken with Garlic Sauce, Broccoli, Onions, Carrots, and Rice.

Watching Shipping News (2001).

It feels wonderfully soothing to be sitting in my computer chair with no sense of urgency about anything – it's especially a relief knowing I don't have work for the next four days. I just took a big shit in the bathroom, symbolic of releasing all the dirt and grime built up from the weekend. Ana sent me a string of reflective messages about herself and her tendency to bottle things up inside. Amidst it all she says something kind of cliché but sweet. It stuck out to me...

"I thought that I had given up on wanting to give my love, but then you came along!"

I hear Kevin arrive home. He goes to his room for something then runs down the stairs yelling, "Krampus! Krampus!" and then proceeds to knock over a few chairs in the dining room.

Josh passes by him and says, "Alright, don't destroy the house. That is the old 1435!"

Kevin reads our lease renewal offer from Chanticleer in his iconic reading voice...

Researching the best tires for my car.

Sleep 4 a.m.
