Spent an hour driving around trying to find breakfast that didn't involve a three-day waiting list. Ended up at Huckleberry. Was tasty.

Some Wolfenstein. Some reading.

Took Zot in for service. The brakes don't squeak anymore! While waiting, I used my iPhone to apple-pay the vending machine. Which was amusing.

Came home and cleaned the livingroom/library, then went to birthday dinner at Chang's. Many people showed, and it was good. Came home and played the Archer board game.

finished work project. reviewed another project.

played some Wolfenstein on PS4. Did a lot of genealogy. Developed a nasty headache.

Tomorrow morning, Zot goes in for service (recall work on the lift gate, and having them look at the squeaky brakes again). In the evening, birthday dinner.

In between, I need to do a LOT of housekeeping.

continuing work. translating things into html. from word9-generated "html", among other things. but, making very good progress. just slower than I'd've liked.

Finished Broken Homes. Ben Aaronovitch kicked my puppy. In the nuts. Not liking how that book ended, tho I admit I didn't see the foreshadowing until it was WAY too late.

No audio whispersync for book five. I'll have to read it on my kindle, like some caveman.

Contractor at work, who's gonna build ops stuff.

Realized my stomach problems were because I'd left out the omeprazol when I refilled my pill manager. Kinda important.

woke up at a quarter to six, which sucked. got up at a quarter after, played some AC:U. Decided that, unless I wanted to play more of the Companion app, which I don't, I've completed as much of the game as I can. So, done with that. Uninstalled it and AC:BF. I need more XBone games.

Caught up on all my RSS feeds.

Spent a lot of time going thru the main Read Later folder in my instapaper account. Got it down from almost 400 items to less than 100 (99, specifically). Some by reading, some by deleting as no-longer-interesting, some by moving to other folders. Still 2132 items left in the whole account, down from 2268 yesterday.

Still a couple days of podcasts and almost three days of tv to catch up on.

loree and I made jambalaya. Now that it's almost finished, I don't want to eat it anymore. I'm kinda tired, for some mysterious reason. ::P

Finished salt project. Lined up next three little projects.
Converted my 23andme family tree to myheritage, and added a bunch of missing data. Figured out the connections to some cousins I wasn't previously aware of.

more salt. so close. Just figure out some issues around postgres master/slave. I think boss's ansible version might have a bug, and thus so do I, since I copied from him. Will have to look at it.

finished Midnight Riot, which was quite good. Bought the rest of the series.

More progress with Salt. Working on having it bring up postgres machines exactly how I want them, and running into memory limitations of running three linux VMs on my laptop. Swap was bogging things down, so I tried making smaller VMs, and they couldn't finish installing. Might try switching away from full ubuntu to whatever the current stripped-down minimalist cloud version is. BUT, making progress anyway.

Then went to dinner at Kona Kitchen, which was tasty. And while there, got some nice schadenfreude-inducing news.

Now, more catching up on Nightly Show.

went to a new doctor. Ruby Farooqi at Polyclinic Ballard. She's nice enough. Got the usual guilting about diabetes care that I get from any new doctor that hasn't learned futility yet. I forgot to bring a few things up, but after I listed most of the things that have been or are wrong with me, she suggested I should go live at the medical school. Apparently it doesn't pay that well, tho.

So, there was that. Then there was mardi gras dinner at chuck and margo's. chargo's? hm, no, skip that. That was good.

Now, catching up on TDS and TNS.

bizzarely good day. annoyances with python, but otherwise major success with work project. ice cream at full tilt. french fries from burger boss. NCIS. Flor.

We need new rugs for the living room and bedroom. It's hard to find anything we like in the right size at a reasonable price. Flor's pretty flexible, and we've found designs we like. Tho, to put together complete coverage for both rooms would be about $1150. Minimal coverage would be about $900, leaving out a good chunk of the bedroom.

Hard to want to spend that money right after $500 to the plumber.

loree's car wouldn't start again. Didn't run it long enough last night, I guess.
I had insomnia, followed by an unpleasant giant-ant-spiders AND giant-scorpions nightmare.
Then the T1 line went down around 4-something. And is still down. According to emails Megapath is sending, to an email address /HOSTED ON THE T1 LINE/ (so glad I set up an off-site secondary MX), there is a problem with equipment at the West Seattle Centurylink CO. I am the only customer affected. Which apparently means I am their only (remaining?) West Seattle T1 customer. 11 months left on the contract, give or take.

On the plus side, I made a lot of progress with my work project, which is implementing a proof of concept in Salt, comparable to one my boss did in Ansible, so we can decide which of the two we like better.
Then we fixed the car again, L went to Fry's to get a standalone jumper unit, while I went to drop off sharps, and we met up at AFK Renton for dinner. Then home. Ice-cream-for-dinner got pushed to tomorrow.

Now I'm tired and cranky and full of first world problems.

Started working with SaltStack at work. Well, mostly shaving Vagrant-shaped yaks, but. PROJECT started, at least.

Went to see Jupiter Ascending in imax3d. If you disliked it, I recommend against visiting Mars, as I've declared you non-sapient and you're likely to end up in the lost property bin at the spaceport.

Sink is fixed. Wasn't cheap, but wasn't as bad as expected.

Finished project, handed off to someone to bring his UI up to date with the new data. Tangentially helped deal with a server problem. Got my hair done. Platinum blonde, for this cycle. Decided to do random pastel mix for halloween. May go back to purple for NWC, or may let it go until the next 11-week refresh.

Spent the work day going thru tickets, so tomorrow will be doing what I'd meant to do today.
