I Knew I Woke Up For A Reason

Totally crashed at 8:30, took my meds early, went to bed. Slept till 10:30. Could have stayed in bed but there was some unfinished business like this journal.

Did not set an alarm last night, but the lights come on at 7:30. I told Alexa to turn them off and I went back to sleep till 9.

Up and out by 10:30, brought my filled out form to the senior lunch. Sat in the same place as yesterday, but was soon surrounded by elderly Chinese regulars who didn't speak much. Should have brought my tablet.

The band was much better, the singer has a great voice, and there was a lot of dancing.

Food wasn't so good. The little salad was fine, but for fruit they gave each of us an orange, we all took ours home, no good way to eat it there. Two lightly breaded bland chicken strips, ranch dressing to put on them, mixed veggies, a wheat roll, and criss cut fries the size of silver dollars. 1% milk, coffee optional. There was also lemonized ice water in a pitcher which I had some of.

Home, watched Tivo - NFL channel timed to see Kyler Murray at the pro day, but got the two hours prior instead. Almost 2 hours of BS about OBJ's trade.

Impulse kicked in, I drove to the car wash massage place, it is open again and almost as good as before. The massage was way too strong, but she lightened up a bit toward the end. Next time I need to ask for light, not medium.

Home, dumped the over-vanillaed whipped cream and made a new batch with just the cream and sugar. Came out great. Poured some into a small bowl with some grapes for a treat. But it's too much work, I'm going back to pressurized cans.

Watched part of Oak Island Dig Deeper until it was clear there was nothing new. Continued on to the regular episode, in which they found and got opinions on several new finds, and sent a diver out to see if what had showed on LIDAR was man made. It wasn't. They have gone completely off on tangents, the original target has caved in. No amount of treasure will pay off what they have wasted on this obsession.

Facebook has been borked all day, very frustrating. Twitch is fine, watched one streamer tour the San Diego Zoo panda exhibit.  
Dinner was too much reheated pizza, and mochi. I think that's what made me crash.

Anyway, woke up, put on a robe, measured BP, went on YouTube to see that all Kyler Murray did was a bunch of passes. Better than nothing.

I'm on Twitch in the background, listening to a Vegas roadside assistance guy.

What else? Job hunt only turned up something at Google, and the recruiters offered jobs in Iowa, Glendale and Florida. All Indians.

Plans for tomorrow aka later today
Nothing. Not going to senior lunch till Friday

Self-Imposed Boredom

The plan was to do nothing today, so I did nothing.

Until I was bombarded with Indian pimps - three actual possible job leads in about 2 hours. It would be nice if one of them came through. There is supposedly a phone or skype interview for one on Saturday.

Woke up several times during the night, Spook was on the bed till the usual 4 am pit stop.

Had to toss the last HB egg - it smelled like sulfur. Substituted a Kind bar.

The storm chasers were out in force, as many as 4 at the peak, but none of them found a tornado, and only one lasted past EDT sundown. More tomorrow, I figure. FB was back up. They think they were hacked, but my IT professionals say it was more likely a targeted DOS attack. I think Comcast was also targeted because I could still get through on Verizon.

Snacked on some turkey sausage slices and dumped the last grapes into the now-melting whipped cream.

Salad and 99 chicken for lunch, with kernel corn. Mochi.

Watched the NFL channel a lot, Kyler Murray interview showed a quiet young man with zero charisma and if he's taller than me I'll be surprised. He is not particularly articulate, but I will hand it to him - he speaks grammatically. I don't see him leading an NFL team.

Spent some time on Twitch making more readable emoticons for my stream. They did not show up in the chat window, turns out Twitch needs to bless them first.

Ate some salad and then egg rolls for dinner, and an ice cream sandwich. I miss the mint chip ones, GO doesn't carry them. Checked Tivo for more things to record, did not find any Bachelor spin-offs. Did find Station 19, will watch an episode tomorrow (on the machine now). Mostly for the Seattle nostalgia.

Back to the PC, was watching the Vegas roadside assistance guy when my eyes would not stay open, so I got undressed and took a nap. Went to bed first. Got a bit more than an hour's sleep.

Up, awake, watched two episodes of Ex at the Beach.  Where do they get these strident, shout over you a mile a minute women? One good thing is they know how to flounce. I watch it for the butts.

Bad boy time scooped some mint chip ice cream, topped with sweetened condensed milk.

And here I am at 11:05, need to take meds and hit the sack.
Plans for tomorrow:
No breakfast
Sr. lunch is corned beef (bring the tablet & stand)
Watch storm chasers
Job hunt follow ups
