and he left
i layed about with LEE-HI for a while
took he for a walk
and what else was i doing?
i think i got distracted on line
then had an adventure:
took the Q train to Ave J
took the 6b Bus down to Bay Parkway
passed the "Louis DeLuca" memorial home
spent the afternoon with Arthur.
did we watch a movie?
we must have
it was all in front of the TV
we ate chinese food too
we did other things
but he was sad to hear
i had to go:
i had a date with Frankie.
Bridget's friend i'd met years ago in Austin
she had never done Absinth and wanted to sit and drink with me
it took a while for me to leave Art
as it does
and when i got home
i wasn't hungry
i was just
i poured the drinks
one from each bottle
one with honey
the other with maple syrup
i told her the history of Absinth (does anyone need me to repeat that?)
we drank and drank
while B worked on proofreading or something...
bridget insisted that we make art
coz we were doing absinth
so we started drawing..
i drew a mask i used to draw all the time
you can kinda see it on my first attempt at a web page, Here
but i'd not drawn it in years
so i had to put hair on it..
it was strange
to draw on absinth
with old firends
and then drew a quick sketch of what i used to look like:
Then Frankie and i needed to get some air.
we went out
we stopped by Two Boots pizza
but it was open
and we weren't really hungry
just needed to get out
and Frankie didn't bring any money with her anyway
even though "hunger" had been her excuse to go out...
so we went to the Stanton Social to see Suzanna
(she wasn't there)
i've never Hung Out in my neighborhood before
it's kinda gross.
we went to the Cake Shop
went down stairs
there was no one there but the bar tender
there was a straight couple
but they just blended in
the barkeep (Duane)
told me about how he was going to fast
and i did my best to talk him out of it
wrong time of year
Frankie demanded exchange for our services
so he gave us free Beer (rhinegold)
and a girl walked in with a pet rooster named Lou
he was a little bantam
he sat on the bar
we break danced
we did pushups
they were hungry
so i took them back to Two Boots after they closed
where there was a bag full of pizza laying on the sidewalk
they were in heaven!
and grabbed many pieces
i wasn't hungry
but took two stromboli for tomorrow...
we went to "The Johnson's"
a terrible straight hipster bar just down the street from our apartment
it was gross
and kinda sad
reminded me of Slick Williie's
(Ted's Mother's Garage we hung out in as teenagers)
Frankie realized she'd lost her favourite shirt
went out to get it
while i sat and drank a guiness
but she couldn't find the cake shop
so i went to get it
and there it was
so i came back
and we left
and we went home
and we slept
and i woke up feeling pretty good
for having drank so much absinth...
