Spot Remover

Mostly sleepless night, Spot knew something was up, he got between me and the tablet and stayed there after I put it down and turned off the lights. Eventually he curled up on the round platform next to the bed but at about 4 am I woke up with him lying on top of my left arm, lengthwise, all 500 cat pounds of him.

Could not get back to sleep, so I got a glass of milk from the fridge, sat in the recliner and watched the 7 am weather channel fake news. They have started naming the winter storms, which is stupid - hurricanes get names, not winter storms. The last one was Gia this one is Harper. What lobotomized cretin came up with these names? The bald chief prognosticator got caught in this lie, because "Harper" isn't just one storm, it is a series of weather systems stretching from the south Pacific through California, over the Sierras and across Kansas to New England.

Back to bed after an hour, but never really fell asleep.

Up at 7:30.

The usual breakfast - opened a new package of HB eggs. Don't know why I got medium sized.

Checked email, found two jobs to apply for. One turned out to be a rep who had helped with the initial part of my Google contract, he's now with another company.

Watched one storm chaser, but she was boring, driving through light rain with a minimal dusting of snow on the grass. If all the storms on TWC were real there would be multiple chasers out. The local news has been showing flooding, but it's on well known flooded streets 100 miles from me. Some of my friends had power knocked out, but by wind, not rain. Local app says Sunnyvale got 2" yesterday but only 1/10th today.

Janice texted, we'll get together tomorrow at 2, downtown MV.

A retired couple I know in Seattle have been emailing about the African safari they just went on. Great photos. They are still in Tanzania. These two travel a lot, I'm jealous.

Passed some of the time preparing another moo dang marinade. A 2-lb pork loin this time, red food coloring rubbed in, then marinade added to the zip-lock bag, which will soak in the fridge overnight. It was a lot easier to make the second time, mostly because I had 5-spice powder left over, and knew where all the ingredients were. Mincing the ginger took the longest. Will bake it tomorrow.

Lunch was a Safeway Cobb Salad.

Eventually 3:30 came along. 3:15 Spot let me shove him into the carrier, and I met Anna at the park's community center. The crafts room was busy so we made the transfer in the library. Spot bolted but I was able to catch him quickly, and Anna's carrier has a lift-off top, so putting the cat inside was easy. While she took him out to her car, I got stuff from mine. Food tower, water fountain, his scratcher/bed platform, paperwork, a calendar and some of his tiny mouse toys. I am sooooooo happy this finally happened.

Back home, Spook came out to the kitchen for treats, but she went back to hiding behind the TV, so I guess she hasn't gotten the full memo yet.

It may take a few days.

Watched PTI, Mysteries At The Museum and Below Deck on Tivo. Now that the redheaded well-endowed deck hand is getting laid regularly by the new deck hand who happens to be her roommate, there is no more drama from her. And a talking to by the captain has deflated the #3 stew's drama act. Also watched Moonshiners on live TV. Looks like the IQ level of your average moonshiner is in the single digits.

Ran a load of laundry (undies & socks). Loaded the dishwasher too.

About 5:30 crashed as expected, slept for 3 hours. Dinner was chicken soup from 2017 and matzo balls. The last of the Black Forest cake for dessert. May take the KFC chocolate cake out of the freezer.

Watched my favorite Vegas streamer, roadside assistance. He took us on a tour of the strip.

Plans for tomorrow:
Moo dang bake
More job hunting
