Felt Like Friday

The quick-turnaround yesterday got me feeling like it was Friday today. But only for a few hours. I had a lot of work to do on automation, did not finish because I can't until they fix a bug. But I did make a lot of progress. And now I am told I need to create another suite of the same test for a 10-port machine (this one is for a 4-port model).

Lunch was at China Stix, which has really good beef chow fun, but just as I was getting ready to order the dim sum cart comes by, but it was mostly desserts. The nice man called out the steamed stuff cart for me, and he had all my usual favorites. Left him a nice tip.

Straight home after work, Thursday Night Football mostly with the sound off because the color commentator was so incredibly stupid. And they were all about trying to dig up dirt on the home team's manager and GM. Inappropriate for during the game, leave that crap for the tabloids. Channel surfing during the breaks I found Comcast replaying the Giants' parade, which made me happy because I only got to hear half of the mayor's speech and I wanted to catch the whole thing. It was about an hour and a half into the show, and they edited it out. The bastards. Maybe it's on youtube.

San Diego won the football game, n o thanks to their lame offense. Two interceptions for touchdowns mainly did it.

The timing was right to see the Giants pose for their photo op, and see Tony Bennett trotted out again.

Dinner was dolmathes and duck l'orange.

Plans for tomorrow:
Work
Stanford Theater for a showing of the original silent movie version of The Phantom of the Opera
