There's a nice café with lots of shaded outdoor seating, and I had their pretty decent fish & chips & a diet coke.
Went downtown to a park behind the library which had good cell and wi-fi signals, and not much noise, and waited for the phone call from the Moto manager. Instead I got a call from the recruiter who had arranged the interview with rgb networks, telling me he is confused, they passed on me. Which is when the Moto manager called, so I dumped the recruiter for that interview. It was iffy. The job is with the cell phone group and I've never worked on QA for cell phones. I don't think that one is going anywhere, but I would not be disappointed if it did.
And then to the library to slurp up their air conditioning, because it was 85° outside. And also to slurp up some power because my iPhone battery was down to 20%. Their aircon upstairs was not quite up to the task, and downstairs all the available seats were on the sunny side by the windows. Checked my email, and there was a lovely message from the other model I'd shot last weekend, squeeing about how good the photos are on her CD, and wanting to do some more shoots with me. I hope we can figure out something, she is charming and very photogenic, and right now she's mostly interested in building up her portfolio.
Signed up for a photo shoot later in the month, then looked at my calendar and I have a band concert that day. Boo, hiss. Will have to un-sign up. But I think I'll wait till it has a waiting list.
Stopped by OSH, picked up a 3-way light socket to convert the 1-way lamp in the livingroom so it can use the 150W-equivalent daylight bulb. On the 1-way I only get 50W-eq. Also got some sanding sponges to scrape the glue off the dashboard which I'd used to mount the GPS before I got the in-dash unit. As I was pulling into the parking lot, the pharmacy called, the one I was in walking distance of before I went to OSH, to let me know that a prescription which lists for $700 that I did not think my insurance covered actually was covered, after my doctor did some extra paperwork, and it was available for pickup for $70. Much better. So I went and got that.
Dinner was a two part snackfest. I fried up a pair of roti, and reheated the Penaeng curry left over from last night's dinner, and did some dipping. Then after my mouth was no longer on fire, I finished the Lingot d'Argental cheese slice I'd started working on last night. The baguettes were all rock-hard stale so I had it straight up. Yummy stuff.
Last night I also tried this cheese called Delice de Bourgogne. It tastes just like Philadelphia cream cheese. Only more expensive, and it has a rind instead of a foil wrapper. It reminds me of that line in funny girl where he orders paté de foie gras, she tastes it and says "Ooh! Chopped liver!" :-)
Took some time to arrange the 78s playlist on the iPhone into a folder structure which I can live with. Eventually I'll add titles and artists, but it's more than 300 tunes, some in Yiddish and Hungarian.
Plans for tomorrow:
None. Considered seeing some friends in Cabaret, but remembered that the only thing I like about that show is the older couple's musical numbers. And I don't need something that dark right now.
I guess I'll change out the light socket. And maybe I ought to get the bike ready to ride. So funny, it has been too cold and wet, now it's too hot.
