Wrong Birthday

The other day my vet sent an ecard for Spot's birthday. Spot's birthday was in March. Spook's is coming up at the end of October.
Last night Spook ws in the bedroom under the linen rack as I went to sleep. Spot mostly didn't bother her.

Late to work on purpose, half an hour makes a huge difference in freeway traffic, but the exit is still a mess.

Had a follow-up from the automation test company's engineer, asking me to do some troubleshooting and collect some logs, but the trouble is that right at the point the logs need to be collected the TV is powered off and won't respond to a log request.

I did what I could.

Europe minion lowered her IQ to about my shoe size by asking if we tested both the crap STB units. All our bug entry was clear that we did. Boss answered that one. I would have said something rude.

No storm chasers today - the storms were up in NY. The guy who does the ride home from work every day was online, and the gang was there plus some new people chatting. One woman lives where I went to grade school on Lawn Guyland. But she has only been there 20 years, and we moved away in 1965. Lots has changed. My Baltimore sister keeps tabs and older sister still has friends from there, even while living in Israel. 

Plugged in the car at 5, Hung around till 6, then went to the Pear Ave Google building because dinner included Korean spare ribs. Dinner starts at 6:30, so I got a good table and read more of Relic while I waited. It only took a minute for the line to get very long. The ribs tasted great but the meat was shoe leather. There was also a bowl of udon noodles with veggies which helped, and there was a side dish of unidentified grey meat pieces and also a side of some kind of undercooked grain substance. Chocolate soft serve FTW.

Home, 7:30 traffic was still bad so I took back roads until 237, and that got backed up right before my exit.

Nothing in the mail, nothing delivered.

Spot tried to escape as I came inside, I pushed him out of the way. Shut the bedroom door and took a nap, and also changed browsers on the Samsung tablet - Chrome was burping playing videos. Very annoying. Samsung's generic browser worked well.

Plans for tomorrow:
Work for an hour
Kaiser - flu & pneumo shots, refill a prescription, drop off sharps container.

  • Short because nothing happened

    Tried SlimFast for breakfast but it tastes like chalk so now it's in the trash bin. Wanted to pour them out and recycle the botles but they seal each…
