Homemade Shrimp and Spinach Pizza (September 8 2014) (1)[i]

☼ ○ ▬

Visiting a friend's house in the middle of the night. After parking my car I'm bombarded by a gang of birds. I affectionately call to a black goose. Reluctant at first he comes over and we embrace.

Waking up just before 1 p.m. The rain and wind taps on my window offering an alternative to the sun.

Honey Crunch n Oats with Almond Milk.


It's pouring like crazy outside.

Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam Bagel. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

Giving one voice lesson at Music Makers.

I get called into China Wok for three hours – helping out with the dinner shift. Thirteen orders and some extra cash in my pocket – can't complain.

While getting ready to head to Norfolk I receive a surprise visit from Chris Remaley. We don't have much time to chat but make plans to hang out in the near the future.

At Ana's house. We're making a homemade Shrimp and Spinach Pizza. Her mom and her mom's friend are in the living room talking in Tagalog and watching the Filipino channel. The dogs are running around soon to be picked up by their respective lapdog handlers. The mini size of these dogs determines their future as the kind of dog one carries around in one arm while doing things with the other arm.

Our pizza is finished. We enjoy it at the table with Mango Lime Aquafrescas. As Ana explained to me the previous day when choosing to make pizza over pancit noodles, "You love pizza! Pizza is meant to be loved! Making pizza is fun!"

In her bedroom I pull out the guitar. Warming up our voice with vocal exercises. Rehearsing songs together not for any particular reason except to keep it fresh. But my dad is coming into town this weekend and I assume he'll want to hear some music.


Later, putting some chill music on the stereo and having a little sexy fun. Afterwards, hanging around for quite a bit flipping through a stack of music books and songbooks she has just collecting dust. I borrow a couple to use for my piano lessons.

Back home. It's already super late but I get lost reading a classical music guidebook.

Sleep around 5 a.m.
