Clocks R Me

As advertised, I stayed in bed well after the 7:30 alarm (which was sprung forward because it was on Google Home which automagically set the time by itself). After maybe an hour, Spook jumped on the bed, navigated the thin strip between me and the edge, and started chewing on the tablet's cable. Pretty much in my face. She wanted treats but had to wait for me to do my morning routine.

Breakfast was a Swiss cheese soufflè and a banana.

Went around to all the clocks:
Weather station in the bedroom: couldn't get it out of standard time so changed it to MST
Bedroom big digit clock - Time and hour button
Bathroom sink - ditto
Shower - ditto
Guest bathroom - ST/DT switch
Livingroom big digit clock - Time and hour button
Microwave 1 - enter time, choose am/pm
Microwave 2 - enter time
Oven - ditto
Kitchen clock radio - ST/DT switch
Kitchen weather station - no need, it gets internet time
Office weather station - select time mode, click through year, month, day, hour, minute and select time zone PDT. No change, so repeat and increment the hour
Office clock radio - ST/DT switch
Nissan Leaf - settings, time, DT

Not much happening online, no significant email, no job prospects. Did my old work routine of reading news from Canada, AP, BBC, Bangkok and the three local affiliated TV stations. There is a San Francisco station which lost its network affiliation years ago, and has become a sloppy local version of HLN. I ignore them.

TWC was predicting dire weather but not for today.

Large dark clouds all day, got rained on a little. Some neighborhoods south of me got hail, Mt. Hamilton got snow.

On Tivo, White Water Gold, as I predicted, fell way short of its goal, and after much angst moved to an even less accessible site where they fought underwater trees to find a few ounces. They are done for the season, the next episode is the reunion in the studio where they all tell us how effed up they were. One person with a degree in mining engineering would have saved their butts.

Watched the finale of that fashion design show which placed three designers and a bunch of models on the runway in NY Fashion week. There was a lot of talent, even some items women might actually wear. I did not stay to see who won because it didn't matter. All of them will probably get enough notice to boost their careers.

Lab results came in, they were even worse than last time. Cardiologist is concerned. BP is better for the most part.

Watched a lot of video on the NFL site because the Raiders picked up a troublemaker from the Steelers who has been trying to get traded for months. I'll be interested to see tomorrow what the PTI boys make of the trade. Pittsburgh eats a lot of cash in the deal and gets a couple of poor draft picks. Oakland gets someone Carr can pass to.

Was reminded on FB that what used to be my favorite sci-fi con is the weekend after next. I seem to have missed it last year. I think I was in the hospital. Oh wait, I just had the pacemaker installed and the idiot cardiologist advised against singing. The wires needed a chance to scar over.

I think my favorite filker is the GoH.  Or it could be someone with the same very common name. Anyway, I'll go. I may even go that Friday.

Got to MV *$s half an hour early but there was noplace to sit indoors so I bought an OJ and went outside. 15 minutes later the 47 people who had crowded into the front seats were gone, so I claimed a table. Janice arrived at 5.

GO on the way home, frozen corn, Banquet chicken, sliced black olives, marinated artichoke hearts and mochi. 

Home, made a salad, nuked some pizza and watched the AAF football game. Mostly FFed through it, low scoring.

Online, a streamer I follow in Vegas was showing several other Twitch streamers around, from all over the country. It looked like fun, wish I could have been there. I probably could have, but am stuck in this job hunt rut. And I'd rather be there in better weather.

Took out a lot of garbage, did a dishwasher load.

Plans for tomorrow:
Job hunt
