Too Quiet

Did practically nothing today. I was so bored I vacuumed the black kitchen mat on which Spook's food & water rests, which made me notice the discoloration. Flipped it over and there was a touch of mold and the floor was blackened in spots. Rolled up the mat and set it in the "for the garbage" corner, and swiffered the whole area. I'll leave the food tower and water fountain on the floor.

Refilled one of the hummer feeders. Usually they are close to the same amount of empty, but not this time. Sat on the porch waiting for birds, but they keep dive bombing each other and flying away.

No calls or email from Amazon or Hitachi. A conferencing company called Highfive emailed that their QA manager is not free today or tomorrow, so how about Friday or next week. I emailed back that Friday would work, pick a time, but I'll probably be traveling Mon-Tues. No reply yet. They want to have me use their software and make it a video call. Sounds like fun. She only gave me the manager's first name, but his company and title made him easy to look up. He's another guy who can't hold a job. French, his resume says he was a Lieutenant in the French Army for less than a year, doing IT stuff. He has worked for a short time for a series of tiny companies. Anyhow, I used his full name in my response.

LinkedIn showed me a company literally down the block which is doing some things with wireless which looks bleeding edge, so I applied for one of the QA openings, with a cover letter saying I would consider any job they thought was a fit. Full duplex wireless.

Planted the second aloe in the second square of dirt by the driveway. Swept the driveway and the paving stones along the street in front.

Watched some TV. Botched is pretty interesting. Two plastic surgeons repair boobs, butts and noses. Sometimes the results are not as good as the doctors and patients say they are. They are always improvements, though.

6 pm, walked to the community center and played Bingo. $5 for a set of cards and $5 for the 50-50 drawing. I won the first bingo for $10, nothing after that, not even close until the final, blackout - I was one number away on two cards. The good news is each round was won by a different person.

Home, played online, watched more TV, unloaded the dryer. Was about to write this when the carport doorbell rang. Lee, nextdoor neighbor, said her fridge went up in smoke while she was out shopping, and asked to put some stuff in my fridge. Luckily I have some room. Two big bags of shredded cheeses. I gave her some of the ice packs which came with my insulin, put some more in the freezer for her for tomorrow. She said she'd bring more stuff over tomorrow, for the fridge & freezer.

Spook actually stayed out for her (they have chatted through the windows before). Cat was nervous, but let Lee pet her a little.

Plans for tomorrow:
Hang around for Lee
USPS is supposed to deliver worms from Alabama. I thought they were coming from San Jose. I had found the Alabama site online, but didn't order from them (for $10 less) because of the cross-country shipping.
The rest of the day depends on when the worms arrive and when Lee comes over.
