Early and Late

Slept okay, but some time in the night Spook chased Theo under the bed, so I woke up purr-less.

Up before the alarm, medicated and lunch packed by 8:20, at work 8:45 after grabbing stuff from the break room. I was playing YouTube videos when the shooting occurred. But didn't find out for an hour because Boss came in at 12:30 and gave me two new boxes to test, and gathered up a pile of already tested ones.

Went to lunch at 1, came back to the news.

Boss is Android TV's liaison with YouTube, she worked there for many years, she may know some of the people affected. But she was at the dentist, so I won't find out till tomorrow.

Got halfway done with the first box, will probably finish it tomorrow. Left it doing the overnight screen saver test. So far it has been behaving itself, though it is kind of slow.

Lunch was fire grilled beef bowl from Good Food Made Simple. A little too Mexican for me, but not bad. Brownie for dessert.

Left at 6 because I misread the time when I started the 30-minute screen saver test.

Traffic was heavy, even on back roads. 25 minutes to home. Webcams showed Theo in the piano room cat tree house and Spook in the office doggie bed, but they both came out when I got in.

Delivered was lantus in cold packs, and a new pair of Birkenstocks, which are much tighter than the ones of the same style & size they replaced. Good call, the worn out sandals were not helping my balance.

Went through my portfolio and found the NASA shuttle piggyback photos, and one other large print - a Thai dragon head. Printed "photo by" stickers which will go on soon. The show is Fri-Sun.

Tivo, watched the news, which spent 45 minutes not telling us anything new about the YT shooting. Also watched an excellent NatGeo program called One Strange Rock narrated by Will Smith and Chris Hadfield, featuring several astronauts talking about ecology. Superb production values and stunning revelations about how everything is connected. Blame the diatoms.

Meanwhile, the cats have a strange almost truce going. Spook is still protecting her territory, and Theo is wary, but they manage to be in the same room most of the time.

Looking for a Thai name for Theo, discovered that the word for leopard translates as star tiger. เสือดาว süe dow. Doesn't quite roll off the tongue.

Dinner was curried wings and mixed veggies, frozen strawberries a la walnuts drizzled with chocolate syrup for dessert.

Plans for tomorrow:
HDD and CPU fan may be delivered.

  • Renn Fair & Football

    Spook started the night curled up next to me, but that didn't last long. Got up with the alarm as planned, banana breakfast and morning drugs,…

  • Renn FAIL

    The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood…

  • To-do list and then some

    Another night with fewer trips to the loo. Spook did not stay on the bed very long. Easy to see why - when the lights came on my blanket was 3/4 off…
