Full Day

Got to work on time, somehow. Will make up for it tomorrow. Work was all about figuring out how to do loops with the automation script program. Frustrating stuff.

Lunchtime I went to the Mercado Starbucks, mostly to see if they were still there. The last time I went the place was being gutted. It is still there, they have addressed the problem that lining up to order was confusing with the problem that there is no longer room for more than 4 people to line up. The bar by the window has been shifted from north of the doors to south of the doors, and the in-the-way display shelves have been moved out of the way, and replaced with two 4-person tables with AC outlets. I snagged one of those.

Home after work just long enough to get the mail (one of those annoying ads for insurance which had a faux membership card), pet the cats, and head out to the Retro Dome for their final weekend. I wanted to go to the closing on Sunday, but we have a potluck/rehearsal for Brigadoon at 6, and I need the time to make something for the potluck. And tomorrow night is a crab feed I already have a way too expensive ticket for. I had to blow off a Bad Movie Night tonight too. :-(

The Dome was doing a "Quote-along" Raiders of the Lost Ark, but there aren't  lot of memorable quotes in it. They made it fun, though. Everyone got a plastic fedora to wear, and some goodies including a kazoo, a skull-shaped golden lollipop, blowdart-like candy sticks and a tiny plastic snake. During the show they handed out non-alcoholic shots and dates at appropriate times. They rolled a huge mylar ball down the aisle during that scene, and there was a surprise at the volcano-like scene. The only non-fun is the MC walked onstage during the credits and talked over the one kazoo-able theme music section.

Plans for tomorrow:
Process more slide scan photos
SBMT crab feed in Saratoga

  • Renn FAIL

    The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood…

    Another night with fewer trips to the loo. Spook did not stay on the bed very long. Easy to see why - when the lights came on my blanket was 3/4 off…

    Apple and PNB breakfast after a better than average sleep with Spook on the bed until I got in the shower. She's still a bit out of it from the…
