Friday October 30 2015
Waking up around 12:30 p.m.
Steel Cut Oats with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Strawberries, and Kefir. Teeccino with Almond Milk.
Running errands with Ana: groceries, dropping off recycle, band, etc.
Scrambled Eggs, Bread, Roasted Potato Chips, Tomatoes, and Honey Green Tea.
Watching The Gunman (2015).
Running a few miles at The Escape.
Ana and I are helping Elliott and Michelle out with their haunted walkthrough at Toast in Norfolk. Dressed in all black and wearing masks we each play our roles. I take charge of the leaf blower at the end of the crawl space and scream as loud as I can. Ana hides behind a demented baby crib with a black sheet and scares unsuspecting people as they exit. In between scaring people Ana and I order a couple Toast items on the menu, a Pecan Kale and a S'mores.
Afterwards, we head on over to The Parlor for The Seeers rock show. Little did I know I would also see Sarah Regis and her new band, Christie. She used to play guitar in my old band, The Vaginasaurs back in the day. It's a good old fashioned time tossing and swinging ourselves into each other while the rock 'n' roll machine plays.
Back home after a long night. Whenever Ana and I go out to an event, or something that involves mingling with a ton of people, at some point she starts acting mean to me. I have my ways of brushing it off with humor. It's not a big deal I tell her cause at the end of the day it's still just me and her – we can't escape each other either cause we're roommates.
Sleep 4 a.m.
