- Bakery Songs
While my favorite bakery is in San Diego, my local Great Harvest does a commendable job of providing my whole grain bread with flax in it. They also have fun, interactive promotions. I got a Bingo card with my last loaf and got 2 spaces marked off: "bread" and "smiling in the bakery". I decided to give some thought to what to "sing in the bakery" and practiced my jazz square and so got 3 squares marked off with today's whole grain loaf and a quick trill of "the thingamabob that does the job is Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo". The staff even joined in! I'm now one scone and one muffin from a free loaf of bread. Oh the suffering I will have to do!
- Another date!
I forgot to check in with my fairy godmother last night and thought I was heading out to meet Cartoon Writer, but wound up with Geek Hiker. Whoops! I would have worn Chacos instead of heels had I paid any attention whatsoever to who it was that I actually agreed to meet for a drink. Again no love at first sight. But like Enormous Man he could give directions, chose some place reasonable, and seemed like a nice fellow. I haven't really been seeking out engineers, particularly EEs as I've had a fair run at that subcategory and well, they're geeks. Being a geek myself, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I was hoping to find someone to stretch the horizons a bit. And GH might do that in that I've agreed to meet up for a hike sometime soon. He likes hiking, I like hiking when I have someone along for the company. And I want a companion just in case I get bit by a rattlesnake.
- My Qual Passed!
I'm trying to make a process change at work. My previous parts that went through the reliability testing failed for reasons unrelated to my qual and I had to do it all over again. I just have a couple more steps to do and then I can implement a change that will save about enough to cover my salary. And do it in time for reviews.
- I finished Harry Potter 7 (no spoilers)
I had about 20% of the book to go when I lost consciousness very late on Sunday night. I tried to finish after my date, but a glass of wine and a damn fine mojito turned me into a pumpkin right at midnight with a mere 50 pages left to go. I managed to finish the final tome over my lunch hour today. I'm reasonably satisfied with the resolution; after a couple weeks I might post my thoughts on it. [off scribbling them down now. yes in pencil.] And oddly, I think it helped to stop and digest some of the endgame before hitting the final resolution.
Remembering to put "spoiler" in the subject header if you reference anything past page 100, feel free to add your two cents to my comments about Harry Potter. Or about using dates as a snake decoy.
