I think I need to bring eye drops in to work, my eyes are drying out and it's been tough to keep them open. I'm not sleepy or bored or anything, but it is way too cold in my office and cold usually = dry.
Came home and closed my eyes for 45 minutes, enough time for traffic to dissipate and the commute lanes to be open to all. I drove to the Staples behind SFO and bought a phone for my folks. For the past couple of weeks their phone's battery hasn't been able to last half an hour, and this has been true through a couple of new batteries. Staples had a Uniden 2-handsets + answering machine unit for $10 less than everyone else, and it's just right for them. Both handsets and the base have speakerphone capability, the handsets have lighted keypads and larger than average LCD displays. I've loaded the batteries and have put the handsets on the charger so they will be able to use the phone as soon as they get it. I'll probably also program in their children's phone numbers and record a greeting message. I'll probably get the one off their current machine and apply it to the new one. Silly audio tricks 101.
I have been reading several friends' postings about Pantheacon, and have decided I am not spiritual at all. None of their doings spoke to me. They are my friends, they are people I like and respect and some I even admire, and I mean no criticism of them for being on a different path. Or maybe it's more accurate to say they are on a path, I'm out in the woods somewhere. Or on the beach, more probably, holding a seashell to my ear and hearing white noise.
