Tidal Wave: A humongous tidal wave slams into the city. I'm on the roof somewhat safe.

Waking up at 1:14 p.m.

Honey Crunch n Oats with Almond Milk.

Chores. Research.

Scrambled Egg. Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Strawberry Kombucha Tea.

Four couch surfers from Montreal show up at the house. I kind of forgot about the day they were supposed to come. Either way, they're just in time because I was about to head out. I gather them into my car and we drive over to Elliott's for the big Driveway Bash, AKA Elliopalooza. There's free beer and a plethora of grilled items. Bands on the bill are The Rememberables, The Accidental Parade, New Boss, Sink Tapes, and Mas Y Mas. A balloon fight ensues. A PBR hat gets passed around. Pogo stick. Hula hoop. Volleyball. As I explain to the Canadian couch surfers, "This is Fun City!"














Across the street we corral a big game of basketball with anyone who is interested. Ana's running around barefoot because her shoes aren't comfortable. We match her up with the lead singer of one of the bands who also plays barefoot. Will comes back with his new remote controlled electric powered long board. I give it a joyful spin.

"This is the future," somebody says.

Back at the house. We bought a couple of Pizzas from Chicho's to share with the surfers.

It's still pretty early but Ana and I lie down on the bed and take a power nap. I wake up after fifteen minutes. Ana continues sleeping while I sort through the photos I took from the show. Eating leftover Slaw and gulping down Orange Juice.

Real sleep at 4 a.m.
