Surprise Surprise

This had to happen on the one day this month my bed wasn't made.

I was watching a streamer on my PC, pretty much just wasting time since it was bitterly cold outside and I had no plans and nothing on TV. Doorbell rang around 11:30,  it was the inspector who had originally been scheduled for 2 days ago. My Realtor had failed to let me know he was coming.

After he did his tour of the roof and outside, and was inside taking pictures and checking the windows and water, another doorbell ring, this time it was the realtor for the buyers, asking if it was okay for the buyers to come in, they wanted to be here while the inspection was being done. What the hell, okay. I'm glad I was there, the realtor had some questions I was able to answer and the buyers liked the piano, which I had not been sure about.

It was all over in an hour, and I was bored again and went online streaming myself at about 3:30. Lots of people stopped by to chat this time, maybe I'll change my routine to stream in the afternoon. No troll - he was in school.

Macaroni and shrimp for lunch, popcorn and Swiss Miss instead of dinner. Thought about heating up some lasagna but wasn't that hungry. Somewhere in there I made an egg cream.

Andy Cohen on Bravo had Amber Tamblyn as one of his two guests. I had not seen her in a long time, she is doing trashy Bravo shows. I have been a fan for a long time - her dad is Russ Tamblyn, who played the lead in the original West Side Story movie,and later Tom Thumb in a TV series I liked as a kid. Looked him up, he's 85 and looks better than I do. I first noticed Amber in Joan of Arcadia, she played the title role and it ran for 3 years. IMDB says prior to that she had done a lot of short stints on soap operas, but after she was in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 & 2.

Checking my Tivo To Do list, since I don't get the NFL Network I won't get the Titans/KC playoff game. 49ers is local, so it will be on one of the SF channels, and Superbowl will be on Fox.

Plans for tomorrow: 
Rain all day predicted
I ought to go to Target and hang out in their Starbucks, and bring home some snacks. Famous Amos.
