1:04PM Arrive at corner of 15th and Church (B8). Feeling rather lonely. Comforted by the graffiti-ed dinosaur on the ground and by the fact that I could finally throw my apple core away. Lack of interest from passersby; they seem to not care so much about chess.
1:06PM Bored and want a drink.
1:15PM Maniacal child pointed Popsicle stick menacingly at me. Wish I had dressed up w/ sword.
1:21PM Called Mom.
1:27PM Excitement. Liquor store across the street appears to need some medical attention. Fire trucks, ambulances... and phone call to move to A6 (17th and Sanchez).
1:33PM At new square. Disappointed to not encounter anyone from the game. There's some type of fair across the street w/ a jumpy thing and accordion music, while quaint and surreal now, I imagine will be fairly annoying after more than 10 minutes. (1:43PM-yup) Woman across the street from me appears to be selling her old bathroom rugs. No one appears to care what I am doing here.
1:41PM Sidewalk inscriptions. Terry Luvz Assia w/ strange drawing of face. Anti-hero loves you. (me?)
1:44PM Chased down ice cream man to buy Popsicle.
1:47PM C7! (16th and Dolores) Heard laughing in the background when I got the Call. Is this some mean joke?
1:53PM Arrive at new location. Called fellow black knight to share Popsicle jokes with. What did the bug say when it was stepped on? Nothing. Bugs can't talk. Where should you put your t.v.? In a remote area. She didn't find jokes funny. She hasn't seen any fellow players either.
2:04PM- 2:13PM Wedding party leaving Dolores Church. Mistaken for member of the wedding party (!) Must be the bright red shirt with the black knight on front, heard it's a common theme for weddings. Whiny woman wants me do something with the Day of Dead Altar but what I don't know, because she's interrupted by phone call to capture White Knight! I inform woman, Sorry I'm in a chess game; I have to go. She stares, and very obviously does not believe me, and says oh, well.. good luck.. I guess, with a very obvious look of distate. In my haste to leave, rough draft of an article I'm writing blows into the exact middle of the busy intersection of 16th and Dolores. I abandon it reluctantly.
2:13PM Smugly capture White Knight, then realize white pawn is there to capture me, but I really don't mind because...
