Bingo Night At Willow Ranch

Didn't use the new shower this morning because the soap/shampoo dispenser was just ordered and I figured if I was going into the guest bathroom to get soap and shampoo bottles, I may as well use the shower there, which does have a dispenser.

Off to work at The Usual Time®, was bombarded by email wanting me to work on two different high-priority projects at the same time. It looks like neither one is going to be done on time.

Lunch was at Round Table pizza buffet. Pizzas and salad bar were good but they burned the dessert pizza (apple crisp on a pizza pan) because they decided to be stingy with the apple mix.

4 pm new meeting with the encoder group leaders who went over some video test clues. I already knew most of them. Not a waste of time, though. It showed me that one of the three would be good to work with.

Left at 5:30 when the meeting ground to a halt. Bingo night, I haven't been in 2 months, and wanted to get there by 6:30 after picking up the mail and grabbing the rent check. It's a 3-block walk to the community center, which is where the rent drop box is located, as well as bingo.

$5 for 4 cards, $5 for 5 chances at the cash drawing (winner gets half the take, which was almost $50 tonight). I won one round of bingo, for $10, so broke even.

It was well-attended, as people have been returning from their winter homes.

When I got to work I called Fuzzy, told hm the bathroom door was not latching properly until I leaned on it. He insisted he had hung the door himself and tested it, but I know from the webcam he didn't try closing it. I also told him the shower light ought to be on the switch nearest the shower. He complained it was impossible, he would have to open up the ceiling to do that. That's bullshit, the wire from the ceiling light has to run right by there. I compromised and said he could move it to the switch for the fan, which is how a lot of bathrooms are wired. He said he would do it Monday or Tuesday. He also got an earful about not calling to tell me his crew was not going to be there at 7 yesterday. Lame excuse about an emergency.

I can probably fix the light switch myself, will try Friday after work or Saturday. I took the faceplate off this evening and it looks like maybe all I have to do is pull out the switches and move a pair of wires to pre-existing set screws. I've done this before. And I know which circuit breaker to turn off.

Plans for tomorrow:
Dinner out
Santa Clara Players, see the comedy/mystery a friend is in. Looking at the cast list, make that 4 friends.
