Hi everyone! I have made backups because my computer made funny noises starting up this morning. Apparently everyone is having monitor troubles, but I am the only person "lucky" enough to get both. My only traveling today is my commute. It counts because it is an hour one way and to another city.
My animal org board meeting was cancelled so I got to have dinner and shop with my traveling companion friend. She was quite perturbed because her hostess arranged to have a friend come over and give her a "treatment". The treatment could not harm anyone - it was singing and blowing into bowls and had some mystical/psychic claims, but the practitioner proceeded to tell my friend she has heart valve and kidney problems! Friend is not worried about her health, having been thoroughly checked out quite recently, but she is worried that the practitioner will get into trouble for practicing medicine without a license. She asked the practitioner what training she had for this sort of "treatment", and it turned out that she had "developed it herself based on 20 years experience working with the dying". Um ...WTF? Experience doing what? I know her as a harp player who frequently plays for patients in nursing homes and hospice. I told my traveling companion friend that the practitioner couldn't lose either way. If she saw a cardiologist and they found something, practitioner would use that as evidence she has psychic power. If nothing was found, she would claim a cure.
Shopping went better, she found gifts she needed to buy on clearance, and I found bathroom rugs. We talked about Costa Rica as a potential future destination.
Today at payroll, I have been tracking down reported "errors". I put that in quotes, because I proved they were not errors but artifacts of test data not being fully synchronized with production. After I type this, I need to order some meds.
Tonight is Girls' Night Out with DD16. Last time we bought bookshelf paint and went to the library. Perhaps tonight, we can clean the bookshelves and clear out the stuff in her ugly garage-style shelf system in preparation for the new one. Probably won't have time to start painting.
DeeClutter: Who told you not to approach the husband and son at the funeral? Are they reliable?
ETA: Just ordered the meds. Also realized I can introduce the new cat tonight while DD is here. Briggs' foot is better, still somewhat swollen. He tried to claw me hard on my head last night in bed when I would not let him have my pillow. I may have bumped his foot.
