Wait! I haven't had dessert yet!

Never mind, now I have.
Good sleep, once again woke up 15 minutes before the alarm, but I wasn't feeling rested and had a headache so I took some aspirin and lounged in bed till 7:45. On the road on time, maybe 5 minutes early. Traffic on 101 was a mess at Sunnyvale, I'm glad I took the back way, but at Ellis I was able to get onto 101 almost at speed and there was no backup at my exit.

Was expecting another day of boredom, but early on two engineers in the big building pointed me at a new build, so I started another round of tests. So far not so good. All the usual bugs are still there, plus one. And I'm only 1/3 of the way through. Decided to watch more and longer video. Some of the 4K music videos are not safe for work, so I made a note of them and watched at home.

Lunch was tuna casserole. Dessert was thin mints. Some eye candy, there seems to be a new class of newbies plus a lecture series. One young woman was in the front booth creating emojis by hand on a paper pad. Looked like illustration for a game. Very well drawn. And so were the emojis.

4 pm I took a break and she was there, with a stash of food. Salad fixings. Phone rang, it was the blonde from Denver, my original contract rep. Just checking to see how I was doing, and to let me know she isn't a Google rep anymore. I made sure she understood that the former co-worker I referred to my rep who was referred to her was good for more than just Google.

As 5:30 rolled around, I was up to an overnight test - make sure a video can be paused for a long time and play correctly when the remote is pressed.

I had some fun playing a farm game using the game controller. And it also made the rolling ball game a lot easier.

Drove across to the garage & plugged in, fired up my laptop in the upper deck of the auditorium, the crew was noisily setting tables back up, there had been some sort of internal recruiting fair. As usual, 5 minutes before the cafeteria opened there was a mob scene, which never let up. I grabbed some desserts to take home, none of the soups appealed to me, and the lines for everything else were too long. So many beautiful legs & bottoms, though. One particular redhead pixie...

Home by back roads, good call because even though it was 7 pm and hadn't rained all day, 101 was a mess southbound. The service road was clear right up until the Intersection From Hell. And clear again past that.

Home, a letter in the mail from the CU which holds my mortgage. They are changing their name to something incredibly stupid from something incredibly misleading. Nothing else is changing. San Antonio CU is now Credit Human. Go figure.

Spent a bit of time on FB doing non-political things.

Janice probably spent the day in San Jose as a Red Cross volunteer, but I didn't see her on TV. About 150 families evacuated, many to a high school. From the flood area coverage, victim cries of "I lost everything" appear to be extremely inaccurate. One home was split in half by a huge tree, but in most cases we're only talking about soaked floors. I hope.

NASA's report of possible earth-like planets comes at a suspicious time. And is unusually vague. And too far away to do us any good any time soon.

Dinner was Marie C chicken, while watching erotic YouTube videos. And the news.

Ordered a lot of paper goods from jet.com which I used to get at Costco. Free shipping for the amount I ordered, so why pay a membership fee, dodge the BMW drivers of shopping, and stand in line forever to pay higher prices?

UPS sent an update - I had misread the last one, the lens is not due here till next Wednesday.

Plans for tomorrow:
Probably plug in and admire the legs & butts again.
Think about places to go this weekend. Research non-Amtrak bus rides.
