No Mud in Joyville

Or something like that. tcl continues to elude me. Something which is braindead simple in every other programming language cannot be done in this one. 

It is so simple. Scematically:
for every i from 1-10
name a variable foo_i (foo_$i)

tcl refuses to do this.

Lunchtime - Fry's, got a short 12V plug/ USB charger for the car and a retractable phone cable. Installed those, and discovered the slot which the iPod fits into handily is too small for the Samsung phone. Well, it fits at an angle, but you can't close the cover on the little holder.

Lunch at Togo's.

Called the person at Toyota who effed up my camera order, and she will actually send someone to my workplace to install the right camera. Later, much later, the service rep phoned who effed up my paperwork which delayed picking u the car by half an hour, and apologized. She blamed it on the parts department and a co-worker, but that was so not the issue. She had phoned me 3 hours earlier that the car was ready to pick up. You don't do that until the paperwork is in your hands. I could have ripped her a new one, but I'm not that guy anymore. Or let's say that guy will stay dormant for now.

Ye Olde Towne Band rehearsals were less fun than they should have been. My lips are out of shape, but also I was out of breath a lot, and my front teeth were trying to cut my lip in half. I hope the lip is recovered enough for Sunday's concert.

Home, hot dogs for dinner.

Plans for tomorrow:
Car stuff
I am not sure if I will go to Baycon for Moira's concert or to Dragon in Redwood City for the first of the new play staged readings.
