Pretty poopy day all around. missed AG's call, was busy on the tablet and ignored it. Will call him tomorrow. Cloudy and chilly all day, did not go anywhere. Will get the nails done next week. No word from Realtor. No storm chasers streaming. None of my favorite Thai streamers were active. Nothing new on Tivo except PTI.

Powered up the old Tivo again to try to transfer Creature Features again since I had seen 1/3 of the movie. Looks like it's done. Maybe I'll watch after I write this.

Did egg drop soup for lunch. It sort of worked. The key, according to online recipes, is to thicken the broth with corn starch, bring that to a simmer, and then drizzle in the egg. Whites or whole didn't matter.

So I started with water, added starch, the added whites and then best of the egg. Kept adding - too much, some dropped to the bottom of the pan and almost burned. Added the soup, but it came out too weak. But it was egg drop.

Next time I'll make bullion, starch it, add green peas and maybe green onions, and egg it and not mess it up with the home made chicken soup.

Dinner was a pleasant surprise. After salad I heated the oven and took out both packages of on-sale-at-Safeway beer battered cod fillets, expecting them to be the size of Gorton's, but they were twice as big so one package was a meal. Joker ice cream coke float for dessert.

Streamed for an hour, had a nice conversation with a long time follower - an artist in Europe. Troll was also there, I really need to call the police. Tomorrow for sure.

Plans for tomorrow:
Minor injury clinic - make an appointment for before eye doctor
Ophthalmologist at 2:30 (be there by 2)
Grocery Outlet - charge the car & buy a few items.
