That put me off schedule, so I didn't manage to get to work till 9:59. But first I inspected the re-carpeting in daylight, and saw a couple of spots which were sloppy, but they are small and maybe 1% of the work. He also left some scraps of plastic in the hedges. But it was a great job considering the speed in which it was done.
There was a lot of admin stuff to do. But I started by sending a scan of my misspelled W2 to the program manager upstairs who worked with me on the licensing typos. She LOLed. I also sent it to my boss, but I think he didn't open it.
Lunch was a cluster fork. I went to the Mercado Center, Panda was not open, but they had the "Now Hiring" banner up. Walked to the other side of the section, and into Tomatino's. I waited in the doorway for about 5 minutes before the bartender noticed me please waiting to be seated, and sat me at a tbale for 2 next to a party of 4, which was being presided over by a man who sounded educated but loud, and I listened for 10 minutes while reading the menu and then reading from the Kindle app, and none of the wait staff came anywhere near me. The party of 4 decided that the man would be spending the next 3 days in Monterey, they left, and the waiter who brought their bill made it clear mine was not one of his tables by walking away abruptly.
So I packed up the tablet and left.
Went across the street to the Mexican place, which I have never gone to alone (I think of Mexican food as re-used food. Hate it). The place was empty, the receptionist was not in sight, so I left. Punted again, this time to Subway. Five minutes of watching the two people ahead of me being served by a trainee whose trainer was the only other person making sandwiches, and I left.
Thought about the sushi place, but didn't want the cashectomy. So I grabbed a sandwich and a croissant and iced tea at Starbucks. No place to sit inside, but it was 72° outside, so that I sat at one of their tables and enjoyed the view of all the people going to and from the cinema.
More work at work. I also had a chat with Automation Guy, who wondered if a Bose speaker bar replaced a Sony audio receiver such as the one I just bought (he bought one too when he worked at Sony at about the same era). I didn't think it would, but we looked it up and the only thing he loses is the AM/FM radio feature. His current speaker system isn't high end like mine, so it's a good choice for him.
Home, almost stopped at Lowe's for a full sized ironing board, and at F&E for bananas, but didn't.
Planted a jade plant cutting Janice gave me Sunday. I think I broke it. It was dark. I was me.
Dinner was microwaved small serving of Meatish Sweetballs. Dessert was pistachio nuts, followed by some natural peanut butter (crunchy).
Plans for tomorrow:
Kaiser, p/u a bunch of meds including the long-acting insulin
