Okay, that almost went as planned

The ant traps greatly reduced the number of those tiny ants on the kitchen floor. They had been attracted to a couple of chicken cartilage pieces I'd left for the cats, who apparently were not interested.

Took my time getting lunch packed and my butt out the door. Took back roads to the Ellis 101 junction, which may have saved me a lot of stoppage because there wasn't a single car behind me as far as I could see, and only one black Scion or something else aerodynamically stoopid about 1/4 mile ahead of me almost stopped, trying to decide if he didn't get the memo and should take the next exit. He slowed down in the lane I wanted to be in, I passed him at 65mph.

But then reality bit, and it took 6 minutes to get off at my exit.

Had all my snacks in the cooler, so straight to the Hole.

After reading a bunch of email, plowed through the rest of my test cases, they all passed, and NP said hers did too. Done by 1 pm, project done. We hope. Will know Monday.

Lunch was beef broccoli steamer & strawberries. Out of diet coke, so had a diet mountain dew.

back to the Hole, took a photo of the not running HVAC machine outside and of my thermometer inside which read 79.9°. Apparently I was late coming back because some folks from away wanted to count their TVs in my room, the manager with them forgot to bring the lock combo, and they didn't want to wait around in the heat & humidity. Next time, tell me, okay? Added the images to the facilities ticket.

Turns out we were not done, I needed to re-run a test so I could tell Them in which step it failed. And take a video.

Boss was bothering me about the move, which is not till next week. Pissed me off because testing is the priority. I did not need the interruptions.

Did very little useful for the final hour. No Asia Twerp meeting, it's his Saturday.

Home, lotsa traffic.

Took a lie-down, made corn on the cob and reheated some baked chicken for dinner. Watched PTI and some of Below Deck.

Sent my BP and weight data to new cardiologist, She wants more blood, but I may not have time to leave work.

Wanted to get to the massage place around 9 to get my preferred person. She was busy, so was #2, and #3, who was taking out the garbage as I walked in, was it. Very light massage, not even close to one of the best. Almost adequate. I think I'll give that place a rest for a while.

Stopped off at Arco for 5 gallons. $18+. :-(

One thing I hate about the Ford is it has one of those cap-less gas tanks, which never makes a tight enough seal to use the automatic shutoff gadget.

Home, Spook was trying to come out to the litterbox and the food/water, Spot was harassing her. I sprayed him a few times, and he knows I'm mad at him, but he keeps doing it.

Watched the rest of Below Deck, and some of Happy Hour, because I needed ice cream. And greevin**. And a Kind bar. 

**The goyishe web sites call it greebens, but in our Ashkenazi household it was greevin. In Yiddish/Hebrew a B without a dot inside it is a V. In modern Hebrew the B is always a B, they don't write the dots. Except for children. And the Torah. The Torah scroll also has musical notations above the letters, which are not printed in the Torah books.

Ran a load of laundry - undies. Delivered today was the long-awaited pack of 6 more of those. Shirts & socks are in the washer now, headed for the dryer soon.

Ran a Photoshop image to scale of how my photos will fit on the two 3x4 boards I paid for, it looks like at most 18 will fit if they are all landscape. If I put in the two portraits that knocks off 1.

Ants are all gone.

Plans for tomorrow:
Maybe go to the park
Maybe shop at 99 Ranch for Longans.
Catch up on Tivo
