Well, one good thing happened

Slept okay. Spook waited until the alarm to jump up on the bed and jump right off again.

While taking my meds, my contract rep called, confirming our lunch date. He suggested my favorite lakeside café. It's the last place I took my previous rep. And she apparently took him there when she handed over the job.

Eddie's a good guy, I like him. We talked for almost 2 hours. Boss is still out sick, but I'll let him know when she's back so he can arrange to meet her. By then my team will be in its new slum dwellings. There's a team breakfast there Monday, but I don't do breakfasts. Especially since the move puts the team in the middle of the most horrible intersection in Mountain View. It takes about 15-20 minutes to get off the exit from 101 there. My hole is 2 exits past that.

Work-wise there was nothing to do, so I trolled around Twitch all day. Eddie is a gamer, he knows about Twitch.

Because of the trip to lunch, the car needed a charge, so I parked in the garage, and once again there was some kind of special event upstairs and pizza & street food & desserts were being served until 6. I grabbed a bread pudding cup, sat on a hallway sofa, took out my tablet and read. After a bit they had tables set up again, I moved to a more comfortable seat by a table.

6:30, car was 90% charged so I drove home. Heavy traffic till the turn off of Shoreline, then pretty light the rest of the way.

Nothing delivered, the only thing in the mail of note was a thank you card from previous rep for the calendar.

Dinner was duck soup. I feel like Groucho. Used the leftover soup stock, all the pieces of duck which don't have much meat, plus a couple which do, diced celery, onion, garlic. 10 minutes at 50% in the microwave, twice. So delicious. There is still enough duck meat left for one more dish.

Watched PTI and the news. Those poor kids. And how horrible that their neighbors sort of noticed but kept silent.

The other day my shredder stopped shredding. Turned out the bin was full & clogging the blades. Fixed that.
Need to put away the whites tonight, ran out of undies this morning

Plans for tomorrow:
Look up on the food web page what's going on with Thursdays at the big cafeteria.
Swap the cats
