A Day of Nothing, Ending in Massive Stupidity™

Slept like a log. Got to sleep at about 1 am, next thing I knew it was 9. Nothing planned for the day, so I did nothing.

Okay, so I unloaded the dryer and put away the undies, and started a load of shirts & socks. And watered all the indoor plants.

Breakfast was a banana and a peach. Or maybe it was a nectarine. Or both.

Lunch at about 2:30.

I forgot to mention that the NFL Network station mysteriously started saying it was not authorized, so yesterday I called Comcast and they said that without any customer notification it was dropped from the cable package I had and moved to an all-sports package that I don't want. But since they will be carrying some NFL games, I want it. There was such an outcry that they gave me the new package ($10 a month) with a 3-month credit. Not nearly enough - football season lasts till 7 months from now.

Anyhow, checked that I had the NFL channel and they were replaying Sunday Night Football's hall of fame game and all the crap which went with the HOF induction.

Watched some mindless cop show and some other things which I dozed during.

Delivered was a package from Amazon, dry erase markers, USB C long cable and Inkjet 8163 labels. As I opened the door to get it, Spot launched past me. He wouldn't come back so I went inside and closed the door. As usual, he meowed his way back a few minutes later.

Hummingbird feeders needed refilling. Did that, Spot escapes again as I put them in place, but he stayed on the porch next to me when I sat in the rocker.  

Took the hot glue gun into the bathroom and attached the plastic hook which keeps becoming a cat toy. It holds the hand-held shower head out of the way when it's not being used, which is most of the time. Somehow I managed to get my pants wet. And underpants. Unplugged the glue gun and plugged the hair dryer back in to take care of that.

Late lunch was reheated chicken and boiled corn on the cobettes. Fruit for dessert.

Broke another glass. Second one this week. These are heavy 16 oz tumblers, it should take more than falling off the kitchen counter to break them. Luckily I have about 6 spares.

Around 7 decided to try the Mongolian BBQ down the block, and maybe poke my head into the massage place next door (for research purposes). Drove down Tasman to Lawrence, and got caught in a traffic jam. The traffic cretins had blocked off the two left turn lanes onto Lawrence as well as the left through lane, and made it right turn only onto Lawrence. WTF? They did this because there's a big game at Levi's, which is a couple more miles down Tasman, but there is no reason to block off the left turn to Lawrence - that just takes you away from the stadium. And of course the BBQ and spa are on that corner only accessible by a left turn onto Lawrence.

So I went to the big Asian restaurant by the Asian grocery, a mile up Lawrence. It was packed, as usual. They were out of what I ordered, so I got beef chow fun, which took half an hour to get to me. It was greasy and they used thinner than chow fun noodles, and not much beef.

Good thing I had the tablet with me and a novel loaded. I was sitting in a corner, my view was mostly blocked by people waiting for a table or for their to-go order. Sad, because there is usually eye candy.

Home via 101.

Watered all the gardens. Mars was a huge bright light in the sky, bright enough to see the reddish tint. Venus was a smaller white light a long ways to the left. Moon wasn't out. Watered the porch plants too. One of the Thai lime trees which got hit by some kind of bug or disease is growing new leaves, so I won't throw it in the recycle bin yet. But maybe I'll buy another.

Watched an episode of To Tell The Truth. And some of 48 Hours. While eating ice cream.  

For no reason I sat in the small recliner next to the sofa and Spook came out from under the coffee table to be petted. Spot jumped into my big recliner and watched.

Sometime during the day I changed the office litterbox.

Plans for tomorrow:
Maybe drive to South SJ orchid store which also has Thai lime trees.
BB&B MV for sodastream exchange and to see if they have a mango splitter.
Coffee with Janice nearby after
Maybe a Costco run.
