Our A/C is still out at work. My boss has been leaving the staff door open to increase ventilation, but I keep waiting for a squirrel to come walking in. I hope that they finally fix the A/C this week.

I worked with my friend Jude tonight, which is always fun. We should figure out something that we can do together sometime.

Mimi was trying to convince me to feed her when I came home for dinner. Not. They get fed twice a day. Zara was stalking my corn dog. A quiet dinner at home.

I picked up some more corn dogs, which make a great lunch. I also splurged on a pair of pajamas that say, "Shoot for the Moon" on the shirt. The pajama bottoms have moons and stars on them. $7 at Walmart.

I'm watching the news about Hurricane Irma and fretting. I'm glad that they are evacuating the Florida Keys. That's one disadvantage to retiring in Florida. My dream right now is to be a snowbird; retire mainly in Santa Fe, but live in Florida during the winter and spring. I need to get to work on my programming to make more money. Speaking of such, I'm going to cancel the Android class and work with some Java books that I've ordered from the library. I'll pick the class up again when I have a better knowledge of Java.

I need to get up early for a conference call, so I need to go crash after paying tribute to Her Royal Highness, the Princess Harlee.

I did manage to wake up in time for my conference call in the morning. Mimi and Zara got into a noisy fight in the middle of it--the perils of working from home.

The front desk worker went home sick in the late afternoon, so I was alone at the front desk tonight. It went okay. Time seemed to be passing slowly, but then I discovered that I received the credit card bill for our library credit card, which I reconcile. This bill had most of the new books that we bought this summer, so it kept me occupied for quite some time. When I ran out of things to do, I did some research into cryptocurrency. I'm interested in a company called Ripple, which enables international money transfers between different currencies. It uses synchronized transaction logs on multiple servers as security rather than blockchains. (Yes, I'm aware that's probably Greek to most of the people reading this post.) I would gladly invest in the company, but it hasn't had an IPO yet. It has its own digital currency (like bitcoin), and I don't know if that's a good investment or not. Need to do some more research. It's cheap right now.

The cats have been full of havoc since I came home. I received the freeze-dried shrimp, and none of them were interested in it. I think that I have defective cats :)

I want to feed the girls and crash because 1) I'm really tired, and 2) if the front desk worker is out sick tomorrow, I'll need to relieve my boss for his lunch.
