Better, but still dragging

Had a nearly normal night, woke up around 8:30. Found a really nice go-to-sleep music station on the Internet radio, a classical stream from PDX. KQAC.

Still a trace of headache, and not as much energy as I'd like, but all the other foo is gone.

I had nothing on the calendar, and the only chore was the litterboxes. Took care of those, and am now out of spare cartridges. Music director sent more vocal parts, but I probably won't be putting them on the web page. I do need to finish highlighting my part in the score, but that will happen tomorrow.

Chatted with my youngest sister. She works for the Navy, and her hours have been cut 20%. She and her husband can survive that - when you build your own house there's no mortgage - but many, maybe most of her co-workers might not.

Went to my fave nails place and had a manicure. I usually go weekday nights, the staff today was very different. I was assigned to a chubby Vietnamese woman with lots of artistically done eye makeup and a very low-cut blouse which showed off impressive globes. She wasn't as good as the others, but she got the job done without making me scream or bleed.

From there to Safeway, on my list was bread, milk and dinners. I was very liberal with the latter, plucking several new store-brand "feeds 3-4" entrees.  Did not buy ice cream. Looked, didn't see anything I needed. I did buy two cans of whipped cream for Domino, which I did not need. Didn't buy bananas because what they had looked like it had been stomped.

Home, got onto eBay and listed my two Moto phones. I had no idea where the box for the older one was, so I listed it as phone-only.

Pushed the bed away from the wall about a foot, placed a tripod there, mounted the camcorder and set it up for Kaan fetching recording. Could not find the remote, which is crucial because the controls are at the back of the camera and I will be in front. Went looking for the remote, couldn't find it, but in the process found the box for the older Moto phone, so I re-listed that and raised the starting price. I should be able to buy a remote at Fry's.

Watched some of the NFL combine, including all of Manti Te'o's press conference. He was pranked, he is over it, he has moved on. They only asked him one football question, and his answer was Ray Lewis is a major role model for him, with a long list of reasons. The kid is articulate, composed, and after his NFL career I bet he goes into broadcasting.

DHL was supposed to attempt a second delivery of Thai CDs today, but they didn't. Idiots didn't try the office yesterday when I wasn't home. :-(

Plans for tomorrow:
Get time-sucked by Facebook
Highlight the rest of my vocal score
add those music files to the web site
Oscars party at a theater friend's
