Two places, one me

A little chilly last night. Spook claimed more of the bed than usual, until my legs got in the way and she finished up in the guest room. She also likes parking herself on the fluffy orange mats in the bathroom.

Traffic was getting back to normal, but still lighter than usual. I didn't need the commuter lane for most of it. Automation Guy phoned while I was driving, made me turn too soon for the off-campus office. Had to hang up and concentrate to find the right entrance.

Finished my testing, except for one major item. 

Drove to the main office for a staff meeting (had to use valet parking, but that was all good because they charged it for me) and to ask the engineer in charge of my project for a second opinion. Meeting was canceled while I was driving there, but I got the clue I needed from engineer, and some education from Boss, who showed me she doesn't know what an optical audio output looks like.

Back to the other office, applied the clue, was able to complete as much testing on the device as is possible, and wrote up a short email message covering the small handful of bugs I saw.

Lunch was leftover pigs in blankets, some of last night's quinoa batch, chocolate pudding and a diet coke, in the break room next door. There's a lot of foot traffic outside, and sometimes through that building since it is on the way to the corporate gift shop and visitor center. Today half that parking lot was roped off for valet car washes. Not many customers since it's still raining on and off.

Home the usual back roads, freeway was jammed as usual.

Watched some mustn't see TV, dinner was some ha gow and BBQ pork steamed. Thin mint ice cream for dessert to keep with the Chinese theme.

US Mint has outdone itself, the America The Beautiful quarters set they do every year is already in stock, so I ordered a pair. Used to be they came out in early summer.

Did I mention I got the 2 pair of prescription computer glasses from $39 glasses.com? Been using them at home & work, and while the difference isn't spectacular, it is noticeable. Just a wee bit sharper and I can be further from the screen. Text on my way home says my progressive lenses are in at Kaiser, will try to pick them up at lunchtime.

Plans for tomorrow:

    Got bored waiting to drive to my 2 pm PCP appointment, so I grabbed the vacuum and did the room formerly known as Jade's. Had to use the hose to get…
