Virtual Friday

No work on the 4th, so today was like Friday, except that boss is on vacation for 2 weeks so no sense in doing my weekly report.

Got almost nothing done today. Tried to get the video room working, but Loud Guy never showed up to help.

Lunch at Sizzler. They have greatly reduced the salad bar choices. No more garbanzos, for instance.

Stayed late watching some of the engineers playing pool, wondering why they were hanging around late on a day most people would leave early.

Took the non-freeway route to San Jose after looking at the map. Only 2 minutes difference in normal traffic, and freeway is never normal.

Got a good parking spot half a block from SJ Stage, which used to be SJ Rep, I think. Had time to waste so I walked around the block slowly, City Lights marquee said they will be doing Spamalot on the 24th. That's about the 12th Bay Area production this year. Always happens when the community theater rights are released.

Saw Bonnie and Clyde, the musical. It got mixed reviews, but I mostly went to see the guy playing Clyde because I enjoyed working with him 7 years ago on Jekyll & Hyde, and saw him in concert a couple of times after that with the woman he killed in J&K. They were An Item™ for a couple of years but he isn't local, and now she's serious about someone else who does not impress me nearly as much.

I didn't recognize him. Even after 2 hours I didn't recognize him. 80% of that is he is just that good an actor but 20% is he has changed a lot. He is more buff, beardless for the part, and his voice is way more powerful.

I'll do a real review of the show tomorrow.

Home, litterbox cartridges I ordered yesterday were on my porch. iPod touch was in the mailbox. When I took it out of the box & wrapping, it was powered on with more than half a charge, and that's all the way from Minnesota, June 30. Ebay seller did not erase it, usually I would have snooped but this time I just wiped it and synced it with my iTunes. I'll try it in the car tomorrow.

The community is all bunting and flags along the road to the Center, and there is an all-day celebration with stuff from 11-5, but I'm not really interested, will probably go see a movie, and or stay at home and enjoy my air conditioning.

Plans for tomorrow also include filling the car's gas tank and washing off some bird poop.

  • Garbage Day

    Up at 8, fish tank was still very cloudy. I put in more clarifier chemicals, but that made things worse. All my small fish are dead, during the day…

    After breakfast I got in the car and punched in CVS, and it showed me one not too far which I had never been to. Turns out the trip there got me a…
