In this workweek I rode my bike to work and back home every day—a total of 46 miles. This feels great.

Sat Jan 11, 2014

The back pain I developed following a visit to House of Air was not really gone like I had previously thought it was, so after recently seeing a physical therapist, I have some exercises to do to loosen tightness in my upper and lower back. (The middle, where it hurts, is oddly where I have the best movement.) So this morning I began the exercises for that. Laundry. Lots of Recharge Spa website work: MailChimp campaign build and test, a few small optimization tweaks: robots, viewport, expiresbytype (google webmaster tools and google pagespeed insights). Late lunch: small bowl of leftovers. Dinner at home with Patrick: indian food delivery from masala. Researched cellular plans and mvnos (feeling the need to finally quit the iPhone 3GS). Caught up on journaling. Late meal: leftover vegetable stir-fry.

Sun Jan 12, 2014

Drove to Shotwell Street. Brunch with Romy, Drew, and Phil at The Ramp. Afterwards we walked in the Castro, stopping at 171 Hartford Street to walk through an open house: a $2,295,000 Victorian with a beautifully restored exterior and an ultramodern interior, redone by Ravi Anand. I did not mind the stark contrast of exterior and interior, and I felt the home was luxurious and comfortable. We got some groceries at Whole Foods, my first visit to this store on Market and Dolores. Back to their place. Rested.

An unpriced, sidewalk chalkboard special of wild grilled shrimp drew me in, but it turned out to be $17 and on the standard menu as well, and I thought that was too much money to spend for a lunch, so instead I ate the ají de gallina: "a classic peruvian stew: juicy shredded chicken stewed in a rich and hearty sauce of aji amarillos (peruvian yellow chiles), onions, and garlic, served over rice and garnished with traditional favorites—marinated onions, walnuts, and hard-cooked egg;" water: $11.99 before tax and tip.

Sun Jan 19, 2014

Drove to Shotwell Street. Richard, Drew, Phil, Romy, and I walked to the Castro and ate at Mystique Cafe, which we all liked. Service is particularly good for the Castro. Phil saw the bottom of his bottomless mimosa glass only twice. Phil and Drew each had the same omelette, I had a salmon burger with garlic fries. Walked to Hi Tops, crowded because of an important football game: 49ers versus the Seahawks, encountered Tim who was accompanied by John and Ming. For fun we visited an open house at 366 Sanchez. Walked back to Shotwell Street, rested. Car wash at Auto City Car Wash with Drew and Romy. We split up and I did some shopping downtown, wanting to find some new clothes for two trips to Hawaii later this year. I parked in 5th and Mission garage. The Quiksilver store downtown at 207 Powell Street doesn't carry boys sizes. I was referred to boys departments at Macy's and Nordstrom so I checked them out as well but they both have a very limited selection of that brand. So the lesson is to not look for Quiksilver in person but instead to buy online in either mens or boys sizes and return what I don't like in person or by mail. Fortunately their return policy seems pretty easy. Parking: $5 for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Drove home. Late dinner at home: I made a vegetable stir-fry with steamed white rice, hot water.

Uploaded various photos to Flickr. Dinner at home with Patrick: grilled true cod, steamed spinach, sliced boiled egg, hot water. To bed early.

Tue Jan 21, 2014

I mostly took photos and helped with presentation hardware and software. Afterwards I rode Muni to 9th and Irving and visited Dr. Jonathan from the orthotics office at the shoe store called On The Run. He spent a lot of time with me getting a proper fit for different kinds of shoes, and I bought two pairs. Rode Muni home. Dinner at home with Patrick: red lentil soup with sausage, cabbage, and grilled true cod marinated in fresh orange juice and chinese five spices (adapted from a Russ Parsons recipe).

Wed Jan 22, 2014

Breakfast at home: peanut butter granola with soy milk. Rode Muni to UCSF Laurel Heights. Processed photos from the faculty retreat.

Thu Jan 23, 2014

The Archive followup with Susie. Notified Eric and Susie that qb3.org was down. Updated the prospective students calendar for Cindy. Lab website content followup with Marissa L.

Notified two students of the result of their access extension request. Intrasite planning meeting with Heidemarie and the Emerge team: Aubrey, Julian, John (CEO), and Mike. View building and ticket followup in Drupal. Patrick picked me up in the car because a package had arrived. Dinner at home: leftover red lentil soup, added a boiled egg; hot water. Installed the new toaster oven, prepped the new kitchen dish soap dispenser. The toaster oven is Black and Decker's TRO480BS. I really liked the design of Breville toaster ovens, but all their ovens were too large. We needed something with a small footprint. It was a terrible experience shopping for toaster ovens mostly because virtually all websites were awful about specifications. I don't care how many cubic feet is inside the oven (who knowingly cooks 0.4 cubic feet of food?); I want to know whether it will fit in the space I have. I want to know how annoying the timer ticking and timer bell is, but even though websites have been able to handle audio for almost 20 years no website had this information for any toaster oven. The dimensions for the TRO480BS are incorrect on Amazon's website, as found in the reviews and Q&A for that item, so it made Amazon's new compare feature useless because I could not trust Amazon to have correct dimensions for anything. My requirements list: 1. safe, 2. small size, 3. simple, intuitive, elegant controls, 4. bell or beep is not annoying. The controls on the TRO480BS don't really meet my elegance requirements, but there was no better fit for us than this one according to the information available to me. Finished watching Sting - Bring on the Night on Netflix DVD with Patrick. I loved it again. It was Patrick's first time seeing it.

Fri Jan 24, 2014

Dinner at Jardiniere: an A Mure Amore at the bar while waiting for others to arrive. Half of us had lamb. I had diver scallops and white sea bass. For dessert we ordered two of the dulce de leche and Romy received a surprise platter of various small desserts. I can't remember what else we had. Food and service were both excellent throughout.

Sat Jan 25, 2014

Began prepping my laptop for installing Mavericks, accidentally chose Secure Delete instead of regular delete when emptying the trash, regretted my mistake after finding that secure delete is seven passes and I had deleted about 7 full-length movies. Oh, well, maybe I can upgrade to Mavericks next weekend. Realized where my wallet was: in my coat pocket at work. Patrick and I drove to UCSF Parnassus, I picked up my wallet, said hello to Cindy who happened to be in the office, then Patrick dropped me at Church and Market to continue on to his mom's.

Sun Jan 26, 2014

Secure erase seemed to continue long after it should have, so I restarted the Finder and all seemed well. I performed other prep activities then began the Mavericks install. Drove to Shotwell Street. Spent the day hanging out with Phil, Drew, Danny, and Romy at their place for brunch and dinner. In the late afternoon, Phil, Drew, and I walked to La Copa Loca and brought home ice cream for dessert later. Phil prepared brunch, Danny and Romy prepared dinner.

Wed Jan 29, 2014

Breakfast: super nutty granola with raisins and 2% milk, hot water. Rode Muni L to Forest Hill Station. The wait for a 43 was over 15 minutes, so I walked to 8th and Kirkham, caught a 6, and rode it to UCSF Parnassus. (Three 44 busses passed in this time, and I could have taken any one of them but I hadn't thought of it or I had already started walking.) UCSF shuttle from Parnassus to Laurel Heights. Even though I waited 8 minutes for the shuttle, it still was faster than riding the 43 and walking one block. Took over an hour to get to work. Checked a few email messages.
