I am sorry for your loss.

I am on a broken sleep schedule again. Well I wouldn't say broken, I honestly think this is the schedule my body wants. Problem is, this is the real world, so I need to break it again.

Any time I get really sick, this happens. As much fun as night owls can have, it's a hell to me.

I ended up filling out the online survey jack in the box has, Got a call from the jack in the box district manager apologizing, and offering a re-meal.

I guess corporate reigned in franchisee lady.

Thanks.  He had a heart attack in the public library and was unconscious on life support and they couldn't find the next of kin.  Someone reached out on FB and I knew how to reach his family.  They turned off the machines.  The whole business was so utterly sad.

I'm sorry you are unwell and not sleeping.  Can a change of medications help?  I'm glad you got some satisfaction from Jack in the Box.  I basically don't eat there, not being a burger kind of person, although if I'm on a long road trip on the 5, I'll stop at a Carl's Jr. and get a chicken sandwich.  They're nothing to celebrate, but at least they stop the food cravings.  My favorite is the make your own pizza place Pieology at the Tejon Outlets right after the grapevine.  There's also a Panda Express and a Chipotle.  Otherwise it's pretty grim all the way back to the Bay Area.  But that's north of you, outside the northern range of mountains on top of L.A.

Heh, I was born in Walnut Creek. I don't think I could afford lunch there now.

Lived on a boat in Antioch for my pupal years, then bounced up and down the state til adulthood.

You did a very good thing, even though it must have hurt. As to the grapevine, I do not miss driving it to visit Grandma. Or Fresno, at all.

There was a halfway decent subway between two speed trap towns (towns that only exist to extort motorists)

Also an In-n-out, they make good stuff.

I miss good Carl's. In the 90's it was fantastic, but in the tens I took my grandpa a bag in hospice, and he was really, really disappointed.

He actually made it out of that hospice, but I don't think he ever ate Carl's again.

Panda depressed is always crap, but I enjoyed the Rick & Morty bit where they just said it was crap Chinese food with sugar. Chipotle is the Mcdonalds of Mexican food.

Antioch is next to the town where my bird's vet is located, so I go there a couple times a year.  They have a good thrift shop where I often find nice clothes for next to nothing.  It has a sweet historic town center on the river.

I expect it was booming when they were mining coal there and in Pittsburg, next door.  I've often thought it would be cool to travel up into the Delta by boat.  There's this crazy opera house in Pittsburg that they've restored recently.  It's sort of unexpected and stunning, given the location.  I like to avoid Rt. 4 by taking parallel roads that often run along or near the riverfront, so I've explored that area a bit.

Walnut Creek, Lafayette and Orinda are locales where prosperous professionals buy residential real estate so they can raise a family in good school districts along commuter rail lines (BART).   The house prices there are only marginally cheaper than in the City.  So the shops and restaurants are pretty expensive.  Concord and Pleasant Hill are cheaper, and I'll sometimes go to those areas to shop.  There's a harp store in Walnut Creek and a rather nice performance venue, the Lesher Center, where they have classical music concerts.  I prefer the grittier Oakland.  For those not familiar with the Bay Area, it has some of the most expensive residential real estate in the U.S.  Median home prices are comparable to those in London.

Had a Brazil nut, did not care for it. I imagine this is what my desk tastes like.

But I am happy, I love trying new things to eat (Other than seafood, I've puked enough of it up that I'm not doing that again.)

Thinking if I want to go to the NRA meeting on Sunday. Certainly don't want to go Friday because Trump will be there and it will be an F'ng mess for sure.

Jimmy Fallon is such a hack.

He has Paul Rudd on, and wastes him on a DOA shot for shot cover of you spin me.

Like, that's a lot of effort, when all we really want is Rudd looking into the camera and saying "Watch your ass, Thanos!"

But I understand they told Paul Rudd not to mention that internet thing, ever.



Huh, I was wrong, He explained it while sitting next to Thor, Drew Barrymore, and Aegon Targaryen on Graham Norton. Damn, whoever books that show is MVP.

I'm thinking I'm not feeling just right this morning. Not sure it's physiological, or, psychological. I REALLY need to do something productive today.

Still just laying here thinking about it. See, that's what I don't like about idleness; too much thinkin. Those damn demons love idle minds.
Hmmm, I think I might hang out at the library for awhile. I used to love hanging out at 'Borders' many years ago. The Internet can be a good thing. It is what you make it. Like many things. However, I need some social activity today. Maybe there will be some nice women there. They don't have to be hot, just nice.

Oh joy. I forgot I took a loaf of bread dough out of the freezer last night. Home cooked bread and coffee. GREAT start to the day.

Is that a Gumby in your avatar? lol Love the Gumbys. "Get off of my foot!" I was a Monty Python Nerd in my youth.

I've tried a half dozen times to post an avatar to no avail. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. 150 x 150 is small enough, right?

Did you try uploading to a hosting site rather than directly here?
