~Tuesday~  I parked on Gorman street, and the Wolfline #1 Avent Ferry bus arrived as soon as I crossed the street for the bus stop. That same older guy that I described at length yesterday—the one with the big fat wedding band on—was aboard today and had on another long-sleeved t-shirt, today's being Old Navy brand. It was light, light olive green with a dark green t-shirt, presumably a short-sleeved one, on underneath it. Not that I was looking again.

A student sitting across from me had on an NC State T-shirt and wore Khaki shorts that looked like they'd been ironed as often as any of mine have, which is to say never.

Another guy sitting across from me had a cute face, a killer body, but...

Socks and sandals

Not that there's anything wrong with wearing socks with sandals.

My boss and I had our standing weekly staff meeting from 9:00-10:00, which was uneventful, yet productive—a good combo.

I had a fun afternoon meeting from 2:00-3:00 with one of my favorite colleagues, Nick, in which we discussed some technology changes that would enable a productivity increase in some of the tasks that me and my manager do fairly regularly—so that was exciting.

I was in the office until about 6:00, and once home, I spent about an hour cutting up vegetables for salads I'll have for the rest of the week. I:

  1. Diced a green pepper.
  2. Diced a red pepper.
  3. Diced a yellow pepper.
  4. Yes, I like peppers.
  5. Diced mushrooms.
  6. Diced half an onion.
  7. Sliced some Gherkin pickles.
  8. Sliced celery.
  9. Food-processed carrots.

To all that, I added a can of pineapple tidbits, and then discovered that I'd forgotten to buy one of my favorite ingredients of this salad creation of mine, the raisins.

I finally used a piece of Tupperware that I bought on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at my friend Bob's Tupperware party. It's a bowl big and deep enough to wash your feet in, and I needed one that size to be able to mix all of those ingredients together without half of them spilling out over the edge of the bowl.

For dinner, I poured a very healthy portion of that final mixture into a serving-sized bowl, and added some Toasted Sesame & Soy & Ginger dressing to it.  Yum. Yum. Yum. I'll have that again tomorrow with some raisins and some Teriyaki chicken added to it. Can't wait.

I met Joe over at Caribou Coffee at Olde Raleigh Village. The place was jam-packed with folks, but fortunately some tables occupied by a group of about six kids was clearing out and we were able to grab a couple of their tables.

We were both online there and over the course of the evening covered a lot of things, including but not limited to:

  1. Recent, and rather abrupt, work developments of Joe's.

  2. Joe's trip to NYC to participate in the 2011 Five Boro Bike Tour, including pictures from the ride, as well as being in a hotel that over-looked Ground Zero on the very day that the death of Osama bin Laden was announced.

  3. AIM vs. Google Talk.

I considered—for about a minute—going downtown from there, but quickly came to my senses and went home. Once again, I got to bed at a reasonable hour.

RE: Socks and Sandals
I feel kind of like Kathleen Turner in "Serial Mom" about that picture. When Patti Hearst says "Times have changed" regarding wearing white shoes after Labor Day, Kathleen says "No, they haven't!". There IS something wrong with wearing socks with those shower shoes! The only acceptable sandals to wear with socks are Birkenstocks, and not white athletic socks, but some sort of heavy colored boot-sock. Don't make me bash you with a telephone!
