August Fools' Day

Woke up at 6:30 feeling nauseous. Went downstairs for hydration, back upstairs, still felt sick. Back downstairs, took a blood sugar reading: 69, too low. Consumed some mint chocolate chip ice cream, felt much better. Back upstairs, slept till 10:30. Pumpkin followed me the whole way, sat on the arm of the recliner as I ate, curled up next to me each time I was in bed. When I woke up, Domino jumped up onto the pillow and parked herself above my head purring. She's been doing a lot of that lately.

Need to photoshop the pix from the photo shoot, I shot in raw mode which ads a couple of steps to the processing, but the theory is I can do finer adjustments, I just need to learn how. Maybe I'll also get around to the home movies.

Lyric is having a potluck the the Toyland cast, but I'm not feeling very social. Between auditions and rehearsal breaks I've already spent more time in the green room with the rest of the cast than I have in any other three shows.

Need to go shopping, I'm almost out of carbonated beverages and cole slaw. I suppose I should get dressed first.

Got to working on the model photos from yesterday's shoot, which involved Collapse ) Teaser photo in the next posting.

That done I caught up on email, LJ and FB and got showered and dressed. Then downstairs for drugs and fish feeding.That was about 4:30 pm.

Happy to say there ares till a ton of fry in the tank, being guarded by both parents, who are wearing their best frightening colors.

Next a Fry's run to get stuff to troubleshoot the Firewire800 problem. I'm hoping it's a cable issue. But it could be the PCI card or the device itself. That'll be tonight's project.

From there to the supermarket, bought what was on my list plus a couple of items which were not. Home to put the melty stuff awa and then to have dinner. Had a craving for fried chicken followed by Starbucks, and started out for Boston Market which is next door to Starbucks, but on a whim switched to Sizzler which has decent wings as part of the salad bar sidecar.  After dinner headed for *Bux, where I am now, to find the Boston Market closed and brown papered over. Chalk up one for my amazing psychic skilz.

A moment of physical humor at Fry's. As I was walking to the entrance, a couple was almost at the doors. The man walks through the door at the left, which is the entrance, while his petite woman friend chooses the door on the right, and discovers when the door pops open  and pushes her back a foot that she chose the exit. She looked over toward her man with the biggest WTF on her face, but he was already well inside the store and missed it.
