Nothing that a quart of chicken soup won't cure

This morning Spook waited till 6:30 to walk up my leg. But first she picked a fight with my feet which were under the covers.

Managed to valiantly stay in bed till the 7:30 alarm.

Back to work today, traffic was lighter than expected, the rain was also.

It took all day for Boss to get around to it, but at about 2:30 she and me and one of the engineers walked through serious rain & wind the two blocks to where I was set up in a non-corporate building with a TV to test. The building is pretty barren, most of the place is TV circuit boards under test & development by one of our partner companies. Today there were only two other people in the building. I guess more will show up when Asian new year vacations are done.

The laptop had no trouble getting to my corpnet items, which was my big fear.

5:20 came around pretty quickly, and it was a long wet slog three blocks in the rain back to my car. I was exhausted, so I moved the car to a charging station and slurped up some juice for half an hour before heading home. I thought about a movie, but none of the showtimes were convenient, and Boss said I could use my corporate Netflix account at home.

Home, defrosted a quart of home made chicken soup and consumed it in two shifts while watching a 4K Netflix TV episode called The OA. It's interesting, but really doesn't get fascinating until the end of the first episode. I'll probably watch more tomorrow. One thing that's strange is the cast is kind of 2nd string. The writing is good, but the actors don't quite do it justice. None of them. Videography ranges from excellent to amateur. Costumes are meh, so is set dressing. But the story is pulling me in.

Thin mint ice cream for dessert.

Plans for tomorrow:
Start work in the main building, but bring most of the rest of my stuff to the new place. This time I'm driving.
