Day Off

I'm taking vacation days Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Thursday is a half day for the office so no point in taking that day off, especially since I'm going to be working from home, right?

Today (Tuesday) I got the oil changed in my car. I didn't realize it had been so long since the last change - February 28, to be exact, a little over 7,000 miles ago so I was quite a bit overdue. I know they say modern cars require oil changes over longer intervals but to me that means every 5,000 instead of 3,000 miles. It had really been that long??

Then Julie and I went to get our swine flu, er, H1N1 flu shots at Kaiser later in the morning. It wasn't crowded at all. Now I am not saying this in any derogatory sense but I couldn't tell if the person who gave us the forms to fill out was a man or a woman. They had long, curly hair like a woman and also a prominent bosom, but had a voice like a man - not some middle-octave voice that could go either way, but a low voice, and they looked like a man. But I really couldn't tell. Julie said it was a man and I guess if I had to put money on it, I would have said the same thing.

After leaving that confusing situation we went to eat lunch at Jack in the Box where I got my usual tacos. I'm pretty sure many people regard the tacos as a confusing situation as well - what sort of mystery meat is in those tacos, or is it even meat??? Well I ate them anyway but they don't seem to be the same as yesteryear.

Since Julie had to run a few errands this afternoon, I had the whole house to myself and used the opportunity to turn up the stereo nice and loud.

So that was Tuesday.. ah, it is such a nice feeling knowing there's no drive into the office tomorrow!
