Not what I had on the calendar...

I got to the library and then to the pool and then found out the pool is closed.  A burst pipe.  I am soooo weary of the pool being closed.  I decided to call Julie and tell her and see if she wanted to move lunch up.

I sat in my car totally unable to make a call. I punched in the number and hit 'call' and got the home screen of my phone. I tried 8 ways to sunday.  My phone would NOT make a phone call.  I finally went into a shop and got them to call me.  My phone received calls just fine, sent email, sent and received texts... it would just not... be a fucking phone!!!

Lunch was fun.  Julie was really interesting and interested. She runs a bed and breakfast - in her home, I presume, although I can't seem to find it in the Seattle B&B listings.  We were joined by another swimmer - the one who dries her flip flops with the hair dryer. Hoai.  Hoai is writing the second draft of her novel and she went into great deal about the plot of the first and second chapters. We ate at a place I have never been to before. It's really close to the pool and open for breakfast on Saturdays. It would be a fun place to try after a Saturday swim.  When the pool opens!  Arugh.

Apparently they closed the pool yesterday after my morning swim. Hopefully, they will be getting it open for tomorrow morning's swim.  Maybe pressure of the rental contract (the team that practices before us in the morning) will hurry the fix along.  If it isn't open tomorrow morning, then I'll just go somewhere else at mid-day.

When I got home, I dug into the phone issue.  Something somewhere was just very hinky. I thought about calling the Nexus help desk but decided that a factory reset would probably be better. It's good to do now and again anyway and has become relatively painless.  So that's what I did and now I can make calls again.  Weird - o.

It is now 3:30 - man, when your day gets hijacked it just disappears in a finger snap!
