Up with the alarm because I had a 9:30 phone interview scheduled. Cooked up a mini soufflé to go with the breakfast banana.

Tesla recruiter called right at 9:30, he was jazzed to get me on board, and it sounds like they need manual testers in several areas, including A/V. That only took 10 minutes, so I was able to get to the Computer History Museum for the members' brunch (more accurately a continental breakfast)  and the introduction of their new learning center. I don't know what drugs they were on when they designed the center, but the layout makes no sense at all. It would be a great place to have a choir recital, though. Prior to the demo, a new philanthropy rep chatted with me. I think I'm in love. Petite gorgeous Indian woman about 40 years old.

Noon-ish, drove to the UPS store and dropped off the Zappos reject, then on to the nearby Trader Joe's which no longer had shrimp egg rolls, but now has three varieties with kale. Gag me. They also stopped carrying Scherffen-Berger chocolate. I got hummus but did not find falafel. Need to stock up at the Indian grocery. No rush.

Home, put stuff away, email from Tesla HR asking me if 10 am Monday would work for a phone interview with the hiring manager, and maybe the team as well. Yup, that will work.

Followed streams for the metal detector and storm chaser, then printed out the auction catalog and had a TJ's cobb salad for lunch. Not as good as Safeway's, not as fresh, fewer ingredients, no fork.

ATM stop for $$ for the auction and/or a massage.

Drove to the auction house for the preview, lots of rugs which might do to replace the big one in the livingroom. One very pretty Chinese jar I might bid on but will probably go for well above my price range. Also some Asian nick knacks.

Home, watched PTI and Dating Unfiltered. Dinner was TJ's stuffed cabbage which was horrible. The cabbage looked drowned, watery, not enough rice to hold the ground beef in place. Costco's is much better.

Very sleepy, took a nap so I would be awake for the 10:30 pizza gathering in Saratoga. Spook parked herself at my feet. I slept till 9:30.

GPS in the leaf threw me off - instead of the usual route which uses three freeways, it took me right up the surface streets - only 2 of them - in the same amount of time and half the distance.

I hit the start button too many times and locked the car open for a bit, but holding the key fob near the button cleared it.

Poor turnout, this was the annual get together for a gang which performed A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine 20-plus years ago. The same person, a local playwright/composer/director hosts a pizza night there every other week at 10-ish, late enough for actors to drop in after a performance. I always lose track of which week it is, but for the reunion he posts on FB. I think they change their hours - only open till 11 now.

Home, after I parked, my Leaf app told me there was an alarm - half an hour too late.

Spook wanted treats as soon as I got in the door.

Took my meds and will head to bed soon, though I'm not sleepy at all now.

Plans for tomorrow:
10 am auction
Storm chasers will be streaming
5 pm Janice coffee

    Banana and PNB breakfast after a horrible night of getting up every half hour it seemed. Spook did not join me, she mostly stayed under the bed.…

    It was another night of lots of getting up to pee, Spook kept me company. Raccoons under the house sounded like they were banging against the…
