Micro testing

Up way late, at work even later because the last exit traffic was a cluster of epic proportions. Not a huge problem because I was going to stay late anyway.

Spent the day testing the micro STB, and except for the expected issues with too little memory it worked okay.

Lunch was a Safeway beef portabello thing and grapes. Some very brief eye candy appearances.

Almost got done by 6, have two more apps to try.

To Sunnyvale Library, 6:30 for a 7 pm talk, I was the only client. The room was 3/4 full by 7:10. Typical.

Very good photo talk showing up close the many varieties of bees in the area, most of them native. Speaker is a superb photographer, and knew his stuff both about the bees and the flowers they munch on. The 1-page, both sides handout is excellent. One side is bees and when to expect to see them, and the other is flowers and when they bloom.

And he has the same dilemma about poppies overrunning the garden while they are attracting bees.

Home, the last of the corn dogs and some mixed veggies. Black forest cake for dessert.

Watched PTI and some more Bachelorette.

No word from Cardiologist yet. He did say this med change is not urgent.

Forgot last night to mention I got email from the last audition, I am not called back. There is no way they would cast Herr Schultz without a callback, so I'm not in the show. That's all three of Sunnyvale's shows this season. I think I'm done.

Email from the contract agency asking where my time sheet was. I thought I filled it out as usual Friday. Messaged boss to see if she just hadn't approved it. Came home tonight and logged in and discovered I had not submitted it. Forgot all about it in the confusion over Pizza night, I guess.  So I did it, submitted it, came back and edited it to show billable hours, re-submitted it. Grrr.

Got a LinkedIn invite from someone who is friends with two of my favorite theater people, but I don't think I have ever met her, and her LI profile is almost blank, so I think it's phony. Her FB account also has very little about her,except those two friendships, and she has a child. Nuked the invite.

As expected, none of my votes counted. The slimy adulterer pretty boy vs the not as slimy as he could be Republican for Governor. I can actually see myself voting for the Republican. Not that he stands a chance. The bridge toll usury passed by a lot. Sad about that. One good thing is the judge was recalled by a 60% margin. I kind of think of his recall as being like someone whose first offense is a hatchet murder. After that, don't even talk to me about how great he was up until that point.

My friend the Libertarian candidate for Congress only got 2,000 out of 50,000 votes. Slimeball incumbent got about 30,000. And for Senate, Diane Feinstein, who has been part of the problem for 97 years got 110% of the vote.

None of this is an incentive to vote in November.

In cat news, last night I locked up Spot when he kept digging for toys in bed, under my back. I let him out this morning, Spook mostly held her ground, but is now under the futon again.

The sourdough has risen, and been forked down, but I think it needs oil. I have never heard of a bread recipe without oil.
plans for tomorrow:
sync? Nothing to sync about
