An Animal at Retro Cafe (April 28 2015)[i]

Waking up at 11:30 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Black Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Cream and Honey.

General organizing and business.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Sesame Blue Corn Tortilla Chips with Guacamole.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers. While going through some picture frames I had stored away in the house I found two pictures my mom gave me a long time ago, both of them music related, one of them quoting the popular lines, "We are the music makers..." How appropriate. I couldn't resist hanging them up in the studio room where I teach.

Studio at Music Makers (April 28 2015)

After lessons I'm at a fork in the road where I can either go to the gym or continue organizing the new music space. I take the latter.

Back home. Whipping up a tasty meal for Ana and I using the Yellow Eye Beans from yesterday with Cheesy Spinach, Mushroom, Peppers, Onions, and Rice.

There's a rock show at the Retro Café bar at the beach. Our friend, Ben Briggs, is playing drums in a band called An Animal and Josiah is filling in on bass with Mas Y Mas. Ana and I stroll over to check it out. There's a bunch of artists showing their work too. I purchase a wood burn piece and a couple prints. Josiah and Bianca are going crazy over this Chinese app where you can turn yourself into a 3D avatar.

Us and Our Creepy Avatars (April 28 2015)

While hanging out with Josiah at the bar I get asked by a girl if I am gay. After replying no she asks if I think she's gay.

"I don't assume anything is true," I reply.

She won't stop asking to take a selfie with us but she doesn't understand the avatar app we're using.

"You guys remind me of that show The Big Bang Theory!" she says.

Back home. Ana goes to bed. And I head to the music space to fix a couple things and play drums.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
