No work again today. The soundbar release was not passed on to me. I tried to set up the Linux box to record audio, but the sound card in the machine is horrible.
Mobile streaming from the Pixel phone is a bust, I'll set my Verizon account back to 3GB of data. Made a note for 11/12 to do that.
Lunch was a rice bowl from the company fridge. Had to pull out huge chunks of cauliflower. One the size of a tree trunk. Tasteless, odorless, colorless alleged vegetable. But otherwise the food was good. Peach cobbler for dessert.
After work I drove toPiazza's Fine Foods, a very fine grocery store. Kind of like Whole Wallet, only locally owned. And a much better cheese and butcher section. I spent $140, bought all the items I can only get there, and paid the price. Frozen matzo balls, far far better than I could make, and way better than the bottled ones. Scharffenberger 82% chocolate, my favorite. Mangoes, huge onions, peaches, big bananas, goat milk soft cheeses, bagel balls stuffed with cream cheese and pre-cooked bacon.
Home, dragged in the groc, and my lunch cooler, and the monthly park magazine was in the slot. All the mail was election flyers, Geico ads and a marketing thing from HP for the person who moved out 5 years ago. I throw away the election ads unread.
Spook has been out in the livingroom a lot, curled up with her toys. Spot keeps chasing her. She pooped on a rug near the front door,
and peed on the carpet nearby. We really need to find a home for Spot. I can distract him temporarily with the feather wand, but only for a few minutes.
I hate to do it, but I'm thinking about setting up food & water and a litterbox for him in the guest room again, and shutting the door.
Watched Doctor Who. Did not like this one very much. The villain was an overblown caricature, meant to be Donald Trump, but disguised as the idiot who will run against him in 2020. That's two episodes in a row with an American theme, and they really have to bring it back to writing what they know. Also, it had a very heavy and overblown environmental scare theme based on 4 minutes of shoddy chemistry research. And Yaz' dad is unbelievable.
Also watched PTI. They are getting less tolerant of each other and a lot louder.
Plans for tomorrow:
