Waking up at noon.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Blueberries, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.

At Music Makers teaching a few lessons.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato.

Watching Black Mirror (2013).

Running errands – printing out flyers for the songwriting workshop – getting groceries.

I was supposed to have a DEJA gig between Mahi Mah's and Chix at the oceanfront but because of the rain it got cancelled. My dad even drove up by himself to visit for a few days and see the show. We drive over to Mahi's for dinner anyway cause I figure we can still use the 50% off band discount.


While we're waiting for a table the two of us sit on a bench overlooking the ocean/boardwalk sipping on drinks and watching a few toddlers stomp around in the puddles. After 45 minutes we get a table. Monk Filets with Smashed Potato Fries and Collard Greens. The waitress informs us at the end that the check is taken care of. We're surprised. I thought it was only 50% off.

"Wow. Well that's cool!"

We only had to pay for the drinks at the bar earlier and the tip (and she got a good tip).

Back home. My dad comes in to visit some more. We sit in the living room with my mom.

"It's probably kind of weird for you guys to be in the same room like this," I point out. "That doesn't happen very often."

I sit over on the couch looking at the two of them. I can only imagine the mini nostalgic sparks going off in their heads. I look at them and think, wow if it wasn't for those two falling in love with each other I would never have existed.

I bring down Elvis and that provides plenty of entertainment.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
