Work Apnea

Took the new BP meds at about 9 am. By 10 I was falling asleep at my desk. At about 11:45 it was clear I was unsafe to drive, so instead of going to the park for a picnic lunch I went to the break room, parked myself in one of the very plush comfy sofa chairs and napped. This was partially interrupted by ping pong balls. There were two doubles games going, and every now and then a stray ball was hit near me, or chased into my corner. But I was too zonked for that to wake me up completely.

I think it was about 2:30 before I noticed I was awake.

There was no real work to do, so I went through the database and identified test cases which could be automated. If they ever give my machine back, I'll work on that.

The folks upstairs (same company but acquired from a different one) invited us to come up and take a look at HEVC streaming. HEVC is the Next Big Thing after HD video. It was interesting to see it in a prototype product. But they had not set it up in a way conducive to comparing it to HD, and they invited too many people for th small lab, so after a while, when 17 people started talking at once,  I bailed.

Tonight's shopping choice was Costco or somewhere else. Decided I needed some Starbucks, which meant no Costco because things melt. Batcave Starbucks

is next to Lucky's, which is not my favorite place to shop but all I have on my shopping list is non-lactose milk, celery, a few frozen dinners and limes. And maybe hot dog buns and sauerkraut. And I'm not sure about the frozen dinners because the freezer is half full of stuff which has been previously cooked and bagged and it's probably about time to consume as much of that as possible.

Plans for tomorrow:
Beauty supply and look for solid silver nail gel.
Party for boss' daughter. Leaving my camera at home because it got in the way of all that Thai food last time
Meet Janice & go to Dragon Theater to see And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little.
