Shopping day

I was all prepared with USB cables, but the machine needed a USB drive. Boss told me to buy one. I drove to the 7-11, which I swear had them recently, but not any more. Across the street the CHM has them in the gift shop but they are closed M-T. Safeway didn't have any either. Finally CVS downtown MV. Paid way too much, but got back to work and got the machine up and running. And now that I think about it, there is a Best Buy a lot closer, but in the other direction.
Finally got my laptop from the tech department. Boss told me the s/w I needed was on the corporate stash, but it isn't. So I worked on other things.

Lunch did not happen. Most of the cafeterias were closed, the mob scene at the main one was impossible.

Could have used a recharge, but the chargers in the garage are disabled after 5 pm.

Home by way of Fry's, bought an optical to analog audio converter to do a test for work.  It meant Central Expressway instead of the freeway, so that was a plus. Got a minimal charge for the car, paid too much for it. It almost got me home on the battery. The app which the recall was supposed to fix has stopped communicating with the car. FAIL.

Dinner was Marie C pot roast, "beef" on the label, potatoes were more populous. Vanilla ice cream, honey & walnuts for dessert. Made two PNB sandwiches for lunch tomorrow.

Fired up CBS all access and watched the first 2 episodes of Extant. Halle Berry is a recently returned astronaut from a solo mission whose husband is raising his android son as a regular member of the family. I didn't finish episode 2, it's turned from being a thoughtful science fiction show to the worst kind of horror mystery.

Been keeping my Facebook to a minimum. So many crying babies. We lost the election when Hillary screwed over Bernie. It's been over for months. It's hilarious that making important email messages public had to be done from behind the Iron Curtain. The party of transparency isn't. I'm not looking forward to the next presidency. But I'm not in denial either.

Plans for tomorrow:
La La Land at the nearby cinema
