Breakfast at home: yogurt with slice banana, one sliced pear, two mandarins. Rode Uber Pool Express to UCSF Laurel Heights. Followup with Greg C and Greg L about pcweb. Sent Cindy a new draft of the OSACA special letterhead following her feedback. Identity retheme work: lots of task resolution and cleanup and resolved some issues with Eric and James H. Lunch at Rigolo: cow burger with mushrooms and gruyere, french fries. I was too full to eat the included pickle slice. New year html email work: revisions following Robin's feedback. At 5:00 pm, Eric confirmed that we are scheduled to push live the identity retheme work I have been working on for the past twoish years. Identity retheme post-launch content work: removed meatball links. UCSF shuttle from Laurel Heights to Parnassus. Walked to 9th and Judah. Muni bus 66 left two minutes before its scheduled departure time. Rode Uber Pool Express home. Took about an hour to get home door to door. Cost: $2.74 plus a one dollar tip. Dinner at home with Patrick: leftovers from last night, san pell, red wine for me. Dessert: one TJ's candy cane jo-jo each. Today Patrick moved his clothes into the mule chest and removed the black dresser he had been using; he plans to get rid of it. Recently my Bose QuietComfort QC25 noise-cancelling headphones stopped working properly. The problem is that the right speaker intermittently crackles or cuts out, usually while the headphones are moved very slightly. For example, chewing while eating popcorn with the headphones on caused the problem to happen. This evening I looked online for solutions and was disheartened to find that this was an extremely common problem. I decided to not have them repaired and plan to buy new headphones to replace them. Unfortunately, Bose has several top picks on The Wirecutter, including the QC25 that have just failed me. Since I no longer plan to buy anything from Bose, the replacements I'm considering now are Apple's Airpods, the Sennheiser HD-1 Wireless, and the Bang & Olufsen H8.
