Breakfast with Patrick: we shared an Arizmendi Bakery hot cross bun and a corn-cherry scone. Began setting up the new external hard drive for local CrashPlan backups and realized in the process that the old external hard drive did not die as I had thought; an extension cable had come unplugged, and I didn't realize it (or properly troubleshoot it). So now I have a new 2 GB hard drive that I don't feel I can return because I had already partitioned it, and it is not in resaleable condition.

Desserts: torrijas with dulce de leche ice cream, cheesecake, buñuelos with espresso cream. On the menu I thought "alioli" was a misspelling of aioli, but I later learned that it is a spelling variant of allioli, a Spanish sauce similar to aioli. I drove home. Remade my lock screen wallpaper to include a photo of Patrick and me following BK's recommendation to do so so that strangers who find your phone can easily confirm you are who you claim to be when picking up your phone. Late snack: taboule salad. Did some catching up on journaling.
