Midnight, not a sound from the pavement

Busy day at work again. Learned yet another thing to do to manage encoders, taught by a co-worker who is both technically excellent and personable.

Bought a VHS head cleaner at Best Buy, ran it through the VCR 4 times, still have a major 60Hz buzz from the Naughty Marietta tape. Everything is well grounded, so it must be the original recording. Too intermittent to be a defective tape. May be able to split the audio, run it through Goldwave's hum filter and tack it back in place. I hate doing that - too much risk of losing sync. But Jeanette MacDonald has such a beautiful voice, I hate to hear it buzzed out.

Went for a massage, new place in Mountain View. Inept. Won't go there again.

Had dinner at Sizzler. I love their salad bar.

Home, fed the cats a treat - canned food, salmon flavored (the only flavor they will both vacuum up). They sure yell loud when I break open the can.

Took the T-shirts out of the new wire cube rack, moved the rack to a more accessible place in the bedroom, and added another column of cubes. And moved the tower of clothes drawers as well, so now everything is where I want it in the bedroom (okay, I could still use an attractive and willing woman, but that's another journal entry).

Chatted with Marilyn, she has the movers booked for Christmas weekend. I'll bring her my empty boxes tomorrow while she sails her garage.

Spent some quality time last night with a mug full of acetone, and got most of the bad silk wrap off. One more finger needs soaking. Tomorrow will try a different salon, and see if they know about resin bonded silk wrap. I'm tempted to just get some fiberglass mesh and epoxy from TAP plastics and try to do it myself, but I don't have the tools or skill to do the finishing/buffing.

Hope to visit with scendan Sunday morning. Have been carrying around a bag of goodies in the trunk of my car for ages.

Found out I have the 25th and 26th off.

And direct deposit made it - my first 2 weeks' pay is in the bank.

  • A day stuff got done

    Lazy morning, no breakfast because I kept biting the inside of my lip - couldn't wear the partial. Took the bins to the curb at about 8:30, the bulk…

  • A day of recovery & bad timing

    I slept better than usual. Free meal breakfast was very good - whole wheat pancakes with small sausages hidden between them, and a sort of berry…

  • Like pullng teeth

    Yesterday I closed up the two vents which the raccoons and stray cats had been using to go under the house and checked this morning that they were…
