Stood Up Again

Kind of a hectic day. The usual morning, 11 am to a new nail place which had excellent Yelp reviews. They asked me to come back at 2. Went across the street to have my car washed, then across the other street where I should have had lunch but checked out the new shops and shopped at CVS, and by then it was too close to 2 for lunch so I got a sandwich to go at the Jersey Mike's next door.

10 minutes early to the nails place, they were very busy, 10 minute wait and then they did a tag team thing just as I was thinking of leaving. I needed to be home by 3 for the Google interview.

Home and PC fired up at 2:58, but no email link or skype connection. 3:10, email to recruiter, he came back in a few minutes saying the interviewer was called into an emergency meeting and would have to reschedule. Boo hiss.

By now I am in insulin shock, I inhaled the sandwich - philly cheese - it was pretty good but Hgl lows always drain me, so I went to lie down for a couple of hours.

Lots of Tivo I didn't get around to. Watched half of a new show called Girls' Cruise or something. Lil' Kim, who is not little at all, chartered a yacht similar to Below Deck, except with an all-black all-male crew. 10 days of vacay for her and a small group of her women friends.

Fired up my Twitch stream, and made some changes and additions. Two storm chaser friends helped me test it out. It still needs a little work, because the apps which support the stream have been poorly maintained.

Delivered was a nose hair trimmer. The blades on those things wear out too fast.

It's after 1 am - my Scottish girlfriend came onto Skype at about midnight. My being short, fat and broke did not faze her. She's on her way to Africa to meet her long lost relatives soon, after that she wants to come live with me, she says. She sounds very determined.

There was one more recruiter call,  for a contract at Roku. They have ignored me when I applied directly, but this was a pimp for a contract agency, so maybe better luck that way.

Plans for tomorrow:
Skype with Ms. Scotland - video chat, hopefully
The rest of the day depends on recruiter updates
