Got up late today again. 8:20am. Damn. I talked with Thoth for a while before heading upstairs to act and listen to music. Mom got up around 11, thinking she needed to be at her sister’s house in an hour to go to a party. Thoth made breakfast for us and mom found out the party wasn’t until 2. She went back to her room, as did I, and continued acting and enjoying myself. Ahhh.
Mom left for her party at 2. I thought she wouldn’t be back until 8pm, so when I heard someone downstairs around 4 I thought it was Will. (I spend all day in my room these days. I’m completely satisfied.) Will would be picking us up to go to dad’s birthday party at The Boathouse in Franklin tonight. It was mom. Turns out her party is tomorrow. Will arrived around 5:15 and sat talking with Mom and us for a little before we had to go. I wore mom’s black thigh high boots, my grey knickers, a black tube top and my straw brimmed hat.
It was freezing! We have great conversations with Will on the drive. Thoth loves him, as I do. We have fun, the three of us. Dinner was fun. I was glad to have Will there. Dad showed his two friends who’d come a video of “Gypsy Dance”. Their faces were interesting to watch as they watched it. I’ve heard/seen that video too many times over the last 6 years. We need a new music video. Will talked about my ability as a teenager to point out all these nuances in classical and opera music I loved that even he didn’t hear. Dad relayed the story of how Thoth and I met to his friends. It was interesting to listen to. He’s very proud of me. He’s encouraging us to write words for our music. I don’t know if we will, but it is something new to explore. I had Will, Thoth and Dad try my hat on. They all looked cute. I love those guys.
Will drove us home and we continued discussing all things deep and spiritual. It’s so good to see Thoth and Will together. I love both of them so much. It’s so good to see how much my father has accepted Thoth. “My little boy.” he says. Thoth is only 6 years younger than him. 🙂 It makes me very happy. Will and us sat in the car in the driveway of mom’s house and talked for a little longer. They are so similar, Thoth and Will. I went back to my room to edit the vlog and listen to music until midnight.

I got up early so I could spent time in my room before going to the studio at 11am. We could use mom’s car today. We sang along to a track a fan of ours had wanted us to sing on. Her name is Miriam. She’s an Australian from NYC and is a big fan of ours. Pretty cool. She was recording in the studio last week. My dad had been talking about me to her and she said “You mean Tribal Baroque? Your daughter is Lila Angelique?” Pretty amazing. It’s a small world.
Once that was finished, I sang on a track we’d done for our new album. Listened and made a few little changes, then we could go home. Dad did his scary walk as we drove out of the driveway. He used to do that all the time when we were kids! We had breakfast together and I went back upstairs to my room. Mom made dinner for us. I cleaned up and went back up to my room… At 11 I came downstairs to hug Thoth. I was feeling a little sad. Thoth brought me to the couch where we snuggled sleepily together. What we do, prayformance, is really important for us. It gets hard when we’re not doing it, even just for a month. Thoth has a harder time than me sometimes. We went to the kitchen for a midnight snack and got in bed.
