Except for the cough

I'm better. Slept well last night until the rat started digging in the bedroom at 5 am. Pisses me off that I paid $300 for Terminix to take care of that, but the tech put only two traps out, just inside the humans' access door to under the house. The rats are all the way on the other side of the house. They are due to check the traps (which were empty and untouched this evening) tomorrow. If they don't escalate, I'll fire them and hire Clark instead.

Work was quiet. I have only one feature left to write test cases about, all the others have been pulled until the next major release.

1-on-1 with boss was singularly unproductive. He says I should talk to the engineer building the one feature, to see if there is a design doc. There is nothing in the specs. In theory I have all the design docs, and there's nothing there.

Lunchtime had my nails done, and then a sandwich & a cream puff at Prolific Oven.

Started falling asleep at my desk, so at EOD went straight home and took a nap. Woke up at 8:30, I know I missed an amazing sunset, but I needed the sleep.

Woke up needing to #2, and it showed me what happens when I forget that cream puffs have lots of cream and I really need to pop some lactose-defusing pills before eating them. Despite what the label says, they still work after the fact, it just takes longer.

Got dressed, went outside and watered all the gardens, checked the hummer feeders (not quite empty). Inside, filled the bucket, added dishwasher liquid instead of pine stuff, and re-mopped the still sticky parts of the kitchen floor which had soda syrup spilled on it. Also washed off the soles of the new Birkenstocks which got sticky this morning walking in the kitchen. Will throw away the old pair, they are destroyed.

Plans for tomorrow:
Work till noon
company picnic @ Baylands Park, which is close to home
YOTB rehearsal
