Geeky Day

I spent almost all day in front of the computer, mostly scanning images from the past. Mostly of myself. Mostly to post on Facebook and so my sister can make a 65th anniversary calendar for the parental units (October 2010 will be their 65th, 64 is coming up in 3 weeks, following hot on the heels of Dad's 86th birthday).

Looks like the scanner s/w is jammed. Power cycled, it's okay now. Found some pix of me and my co-workers/students at an off-site in June of 76, which is not long after I arrived at the Rubber Research Center assignment. I loaned my camera to some of the crew which means I'm in many of the pictures, and most of them are out of focus.

Took a break to go to Starbucks, but it was jam packed so I took my drink out to Shoreline Park, sat in my lawn chair by the lake, and read some Arthur C. Clarke short stories. He had a way of coming up with unhappy endings.

Plans for tonight: Catch up on Tivo. The Mentalist and Glee. And TMZ. And maybe the national parks series, though I'm inclined to leave that to when I am out of Netflix DVDs.
Plans for tomorrow: Railway Post Office & vintage rail car display at Niles depot. Garth's birthday BBQ.
Sunday: Picnic and folk jam session at Vasona Park, coffee date with an old friend, Harvest Moon photo shoot in San Mateo.
