Oh poop. Oh noes

Up on time because garbage day, but the first bin wasn't collected until 11:30, the second one around 3.

Things were looking up with Jade, she learned that when I petted her up on top of the counter, she could jump down and follow me across the kitchen opening to the food dishes. She keep looking for Spook, very wary.

But then she pooped on the counter - not good, I store food there - and then when she was eating,  Spook came out of nowhere and charged at her, guarding the food & water.

Much as I hated to do it, I moved my work setup to the living room, got the extra food tower and treats dish out of the rack, pulled the spare water fountain out of the guest bathroom, got the spare electronic litterbox out of the shed and a cartridge for it off the laundry rack, and set up the guest room for cat. Carried Jade down the hall and into the room (she was not thrilled with the transport) and finally moved the cat cam from the mantelpiece to the guest room.

Jade found a spot on the cat tree about the same height as the kitchen counter and hasn't moved from there all day, which is pretty normal for her. Spook has hung around outside the guest room door a bit, and I spent some time in the room sitting and talking but Jade is still angry. Hopefully she will come out of her shell when she realizes she's safe. But this is going to take a long time.

Delivered was a USB 3.0 7-port hub. I shut down the PC, installed it, and moved all the important connections to it, so I don't have to get on the floor and pull out the PC to get to them in the back. Also discovered in Control Panel that there were old keyboards, mice and cameras which needed to be uninstalled. Things are working a lot better now.

Also in that delivery was a 3'x5' American flag. I attached it to the pole and set it up next to and above the Peace Corps flag out front. Just in time for 23 MPH gusts.

I talked to Caryn, the neighbor whose carport roof was damaged, and she said there was nothing she could see which could have caused it. She confirmed that it was damaged from above, and will know more tomorrow when the insurance adjuster takes a look. My money is still on a meteorite. She said the roof is only 3 years old, and we've had much hotter weather and much stronger winds, so WTF?

Tried to watch PTI but instead there was a very poor little league game. :-(

2-hour Bachelor in Paradise was better than average, lots of good couples hooking up, and the two phonies - both named Victoria - went home. But so did Champagne Girl, because the script was followed and her guy chose Demi the wonder slut. Demi is part of the Bachelor Nation production team, she really had no call to be on the show competing with the other women.

Work news - still no email from payroll. I won't get paid on time for last week. Recruiter doesn't get it that of course I checked my spam folders.

Two training Zoom sessions scheduled, one for Wednesday and one for Friday. Should be fun.
BASFA zoom meeting was kinda short.

Plans for tomorrow:
Mail the refund request to Creation Entertainment
Watch Below Deck Med & 90 Day The Single Life
Spend time with Jade. Maybe play the piano.

  • Renn Fair & Football

    Spook started the night curled up next to me, but that didn't last long. Got up with the alarm as planned, banana breakfast and morning drugs, then…

  • Renn FAIL

    The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood…

  • To-do list and then some

    Another night with fewer trips to the loo. Spook did not stay on the bed very long. Easy to see why - when the lights came on my blanket was 3/4 off…
