Nails & Rain & No duck

Up at 7:30, the house builders showed up before 8:30 as I was taking meds, so I had breakfast and checked email & news before setting up the stream. Once again there wasn't much to see, except they were on the roof for a few minutes, but then most of their work was inside the house. Cold and windy, but no rain. Took the stream down at noon.

Was going to go for my nail appointment early, but instead cut back the roses some more, got stuck with thorns once and cut on the back of my hand a little. But I got the job done.

Still was 10 minutes early for my appointment. She did an okay job. Not the best but not bad. $35 instead of the $25 on their web site.

Went next door to Safeway, looking to buy a duck or a big turkey leg - raw or smoked. But there was no duck, just a lot of turkeys and ham, no smoked turkey and the raw legs they had were not much bigger than chicken. So I left empty-handed.

And it was raining. Just enough to put the wipers on intermittent. One thing I liked about the previous car is it sensed when the windshield was wet and automatically turned on the wipers, but the Leaf doesn't do that. There are several perks in the Ford which Nissan doesn't provide.

Home, the workers were out of sight, but there were three of their trucks parked there now. They were gone by 4, maybe earlier.

Daily ride home was 2 hours early, nobody was on chat. Everyone was following a storm chaser who was in the snow in Nebraska. I followed his stream for a while.

TV, Below Deck was a cluster. Rhylie was added to the crew mid-cruise, and she started out fine, but she went ballistic when she had a few drinks after the charter was over and the crew was at a restaurant. She picked a fight with the chef, who is a total jerk. Meanwhile during the charter the "primary" guest kept making moves on stew #3. Chief stew had to keep sending her below.

PTI was unusual, Tony was in a fully enclosing turkey costume. But at least he was there.

As I write this I'm watching a stream from Bangkok, a popular woman streamer is on a river taxi on the river. I've done a lot of that my last 2 trips, very nostalgic.

Lunch was late, Bon Chon chicken. Dinner was later, beef teriyaki steamer bowl. Strawberries and grapes in whipped cream for dessert for lunch, rocky road ice cream after dinner.

Streamed for 15 minutes, troll struck 4 times, somehow he got into chat with a non-following username. Reported, blocked and banned. But that's too much work. Twitch needs to ramp up their support.

Email from Realtor asking if Louise from Pam's can show the house tomorrow at 11? You betcha.

Delivered in the mailbox was a big bag of all my non-insulin meds.

Printed the rent check.

Plans for tomorrow:
The usual breakfast & online stuff
Drop off the rent check. If anyone is having coffee, join in
Peet's or Starbucks. Watch the cameras as the house is visited.
