Breakfast at home: one egg scrambled on english muffin with cheddar cheese, 8 ounces of orange juice, 1.5 pints of hot water. Rode Uber Pool Express to UCSF Laurel Heights. Sprint standup. Began new year html email work. Began email mailing list update tasks. Today I gave James J a Zippo handwarmer that wasn't a good fit for my needs. Left work a little early. UCSF shuttle from Laurel Heights to Parnassus. Walked to 9th and Judah. Rode Muni home. Set up my 2012 iMac in the garage for a seller to buy it. He arrived with a friend, and I showed him the iMac. We three then drove to the UPS Store in West Portal to notarize a bill of sale that he prepared and which he and I signed. We returned to my place, and I packed the iMac and helped him carry it to his car. I charged $799, which I thought was a fair price and a great return on a five-year-old computer. Dinner at home with Patrick: Good Eggs farro fried "rice" with maitake mushrooms, baby spinach, and pea shoots. This meal was good except that the soy seasonsing sauce was a small quantity that did not provide a hint at how concentrated it was. The dish turned out very salty. We ate enough to fill our stomachs, but we decided to not keep the leftovers. Dessert: TJ's candy cane jo-jo's—one for Patrick, two for me. Sweet wine for both. Worked more on the new year html email; I just couldn't stop.
