Julie and Erica who sit next to me were there and, as always, such fun. But last night, the casino seats on the other side of me were filled with three guys who were equally as much fun. It was just a great, great game. Even though I had to leave early.
Every quarter they clean and wax the lobby floors and elevators from 10 pm to 5 am and so they are unavailable to residents.* I had promised the building manager that I would try to make it home as close to 10 pm as I could. This turned out to be in the 7th inning and I made it home at 10:05. But, between the broadcast outside the stadium and turning on the TV when I got home, I really didn't miss much so it was fine.
*The lobby being closed was not the reason for the horrible exchange with the building manager... the way he handled my telling him that I might be home a few minutes after 10 and need the lobby and elevators was the issue. Turns out at 10:05 there was zero sign of anyone working on or getting ready to work on the project AND there were 4 people who came in after me in 2 different groups. But. What.Ever
I actually even stayed up after the game for a little to listen to my book and then finally went to sleep way later than normal and I slept like the proverbial log. It was luxurious. I woke up this morning at 6 and then went back to sleep for another hour and a half.
No big plans for today. USPS says they are going to deliver some new tech. I signed up for the Amazon Auto Echo. It's Alexa for the car. But, it's by invitation only. I requested an invite early last Fall and so far... crickets. So. Screw 'em. I bought the Roav Bolt. When I bought it, it said May delivery. And, here is it still April! Take that, Auto Echo! It's kind of hard to see what it's going to do differently than my phone already does. And I may have just scammed myself... We'll see today.
The Edgar award winners were just announced so I think I'll pop over to Audible and see if any look interesting. Then I might get dressed and make up my bed. I'd like to get the latter done before lunch. No reason. Just seems right. It's hard to know how to take a day off when you are retired.
