The Ville

Yesterday i went to Davis Square in Somerville with an FTM (female to male) friend. We met up at the Diesel Cafe, but i asked him if he minded going someplace else to eat. We decided to go to Redbones. It is a Texas type BBQ place that is supposed to be the best BBQ restaurant in all of Massachusetts. i've heard people talk about it before. A nurse i really liked when i was in the hospital said that the artwork downstairs at the restaurant reminded her of my art, so we sat downstairs. However, i did not really see the resemblance to my art, other than that it was colorful. They served us cornbread and butter and our drinks came in big jar's. I had chicken with mashed potatoes, broccoli and mac and cheese. It was good. i tried one of my friend's ribs. It was a little undercooked for my liking, but it was quite tasty.

Afterwards, we were standing on the corner talking, and this gangster kid/guy came up to me and asked me for a cigarette. I gave him one and he said "thank you. i'm actually a woman you know". and i said "cool". i don't think he was an FTM, but it seemed interesting that he would say that to 2 FTMs... like he could tell something about us, but he didn't say it in a rude way at all. Then my friend and i got a soda at the Diesel Cafe, and on my way to my car i ran into the kid again. He came up to me and said "Do you have a square?" (which means cigarette on the streets of Boston) i said "no, i don't have any left" and he said "okay. cuz i'm actually a gargoyle. if you look up at a building some day you will see me" i said "cool" and he walked away. The gargoyle statement didn't make as much sense as him saying to us that he was a woman. Oh well. he seemed like a cool shit. a little crazy obviously, but cool.

Weeds

Weeds was really good tonight. It was the best one so far this season. Alanis Morrsett is in it for a couple of minutes. I suspect she may be in more to come, but i don't know.

I brought some signed papers to the housing authority today so they can finally pay their portion of the rent. I didn't do much else today except upload a bunch of my CDs to the computer.

Things are going all right at the moment. Last week something triggered my PTSD and i think i lost some time cuz i was confused all week until i realized it wasn't the day i thought it was. It makes me a little nervous, but i'm doing okay now.

I saw my cousin of the 4th for a couple hours (i knew what day it was and everything by then) and i took a walk to the pond to see fireworks, but there weren't any going on, so i kind of meditated and stared into the clouds for awhile. i saw a face in the clouds that looked like michael jackson, but it might have just been that the face had no nose. either way, i like seeing faces in the clouds. it makes me feel like someone is looking out for me.
