Camel Day

Turned off the alarm and ignored the lights for about half an hour. Grabbed the tablet and opened the webcam app, could not find Spook anywhere. Getting out of bed saw she was at the foot of the bed, somehow she has a stealth mode.

BP was very high, so was Hgl.

Email included a message from Tesla, with a request to fill out an application and a job description which looked like a good fit. They are in Palo Alto, up on Deer Creek, which is out of the way, near the Xerox PARC location up the hill from HP.

Also email from a recruiter saying the manager at Apple who has more than one opening will schedule a phone call next week. Typical issue is hiring managers wait till they are overwhelmed before hiring more staff.

No feedback from last night's Hangouts interview. :-(

Facebooked a bit, and watched a couple of storm chasers but their streams kept cutting out.

Drove to Mercado Starbucks, lucked out with a close by parking space and my favorite table. And a freebie frappé.

Mostly just checked email, added my gmail to Outlook. Lots of pretty women, but around 1 pm the place was packed. Walked across the parking lot to Smoke Eaters and got 10 wings to go.

Home, set the wings aside while my regular storm chaser was streaming, as were two others. I can multi-screen them with a special browser page.

Tivo while I ate the wings. I am reminded why I rarely go to Smoke Eaters. They drown the wings in sauce, I prefer plain breaded wings.

Hendersons vet show,  which included some surgery and a field trip to a snake wrangler.
PTI, and an exceptionally oblique Mysteries at the Museum. None of the objects in the museums were the actual objects behind the stories they told.

Played a few games of marbles on one of the storm chaser channels, then ran a few rounds on my own stream.

Lunch was the wings and a tangelo. Spook liked the drumstick cartilage and small piece of meat I threw her, but as usual she had to walk away and then return later to inspect it. She loves the space under the big orchid, and would eat the plant if she could figure out how.

King Size, where I used to get my dress shirts, has a 50% off sale in progress. Logged in, and 50% off brought the prices down to twice the Walmart price. Not my idea of a bargain.

Delivered was the first of my Amazon subscriptions - paper plates.

Sourdough open faced cheese melt for dinner. Grapes for dessert.

Plans for tomorrow:
None, unless the auction catalog is online


  • Kind of a nothing day, but with deliveries

    Once again Spook was on the bed at first, then disappeared until the alarm turned the lights on. Then she joined me. Jade has been crying again, a…

  • Some fishiness and a Below Deck FAIL

    Did I mention I gave myself a haircut yesterday? No need to rush getting out of bed this morning, so I got out the tablet, ordered some kibble for…

    But first, I forgot to mention yesterday three fish died overnight. I suspect the temperature got too low when the clogged filter failed to…
