The Universe Just Doesn't Like Me

Got the house ready for a buyer visit, which includes putting away all my bathroom stuff, meds, cleaning counter tops, taking out the paper & container recyclables and the buckets they usually are in in the kitchen.

The daily ride home was at 9 my time, he had half a day off for T-day weekend.

10-ish to the community center with my tablet. Dropped off the rent, grabbed a dcaf. Put the tablet on its stand, connected to wi-fi, checked the indoor and outdoor camera apps, and read from the Kindle app till 11. Chatted with neighbors who showed up. Two I met at the newcomers tea got a demo of my camera app. They asked a lot about security services. I told them the trade-off is professionals will install the system, but strangers will monitor the video.

11:30, no sign of the 11 am visitors, texted the Pam's Homes rep, she answered at noon she just heard back from my realtor, and her clients were not ready anyway.

Wasted hours for me. Feeling hungry, drove the Ranch 99, charged the car - the first charger was out of order, the second one worked. 99Ranch had lamyay but they were too small. Lobster was on sale, but the line was long and slow. moving on, bought three sesame balls and a pork bun, then half a roast duck and half a pound of BBQ pork.

Back to the car, ate the pork bun as the charger finished up.

Home, pounding rain. We got about an inch. Sesame balls for lunch. Still hoping to hear about a buyer visit. Email from Realtor pretending Pam's rep missed her text. Unlikely.

No work on the house across the street, too wet. Nice to have my gardens watered.

New Oak Island episode, FFed through most of it as usual, all they found was some old chunks of wood and a brooch. And they finally hired someone to drain the swamp.

Gold Rush was a rerun.

Ramen with BBQ pork & shrimp won tons for dinner. The won tons are horrible, all dough. They will be consigned to the disposal.

Fed up with Twitch, set up a new** YouTube channel for live streaming. I can use the same app. 24 hour hold on new YT channels, so I need to go back tomorrow to get the stream code. **actually I reclaimed my original howeird.com account.

No PTI till next Monday.

Turned on Amazon Fire, watched two episodes of The Hogfather, which I had forgotten I had. Superb production values, beautiful protagonist, all around excellent casting. Discovered that verruca is another name for plantar's F.

Plans for tomorrow:
More Hogfather
Bears/Lions, Bills/Cowpokes, Saints/Falcons - need to set Tivo
More reading - I think I'll be done with the trilogy soon, then on to a Seanan McGuire novel
Maybe watch the rain from the front porch. Maybe.
Duck for dinner.
