Diagonally, because I’m not quite moving forward, but I’m not exactly staying in the same place…
Just called the loan broker again… the underwriting department was in “training” all last week, so they should have an answer either tomorrow or Monday. Yeah, right, I’ll believe it when they call.
So, last week I bemoaned about how my VCR wasn’t recording. Well, I figured out why it wasn’t… boneheaded little me forgot to press the last button (“Timer”) which puts the VCR into timed record mode. I tested it on Monday, and sure enough, it recorded. So Tuesday night, when I came home and found the tape wasn’t sitting at the beginning like the last two weeks, I went to sleep happy.
Wednesday night when I put the tape in and found that instead of recording 24 on channel 2, I had recorded the 9 o’clock news on channel 4, I wasn’t as happy. I swear that I had set the program to channel 2. Next week (yes, I’m a masochist, I know), I’ll get it right and set the VCR to channel 2 before I push the timer button.
If that doesn’t work… grrrr…. I’m tired of having to watch the encore showing on Monday nights at 11 on FX. I’m just glad that it exists, not many shows actually have a regular encore showing.
So, last night was the first night of Passover. Last weekend, I went to Mollie Stone’s (after meandering lost around the Stanford campus a bit), a kosher market in Palo Alto. Last year, I was all so excited to find the section at Andronico’s in Palo Alto; they had a whole end cap of various Passover foodstuffs, as opposed to one section of one shelf at the normal supermarkets (which were mostly unusable during Passover anyway). Well, I was blown away. There was an entire side of one aisle, floor to ceiling, and islands… filled with various kosher for Passover products. I stuck to stuff I was familiar with, but I could have gone so hog wild there. It was also slightly odd to see people running into people they knew in the aisle. The Jewish community in Palo Alto must be pretty small, even if it’s probably the largest in the Bay Area.
