From what I remember, work on Monday and Tuesday was not especially eventful. I wrote a ‘rest of’ story on Tuesday although I did have some trouble with it. It aired largely as I wrote it although I wish I had done better.
I worked on Wednesday. At present there is more than enough work to keep me busy at the doctor’s office. We will be auto discharging a stack of charts in the coming weeks.
I spent a lot of time fooling with my new phone this week, a T-Mobile branded HTC Touch Pro 2. It’s a Windows Mobile 6 phone and unlike the Blackberry it will work over Wi-Fi without any trouble like I had last week. This is my first extended experience with Windows Mobile, however, so I have a lot yet to learn. I’ve spent a lot of time learning and I reflashed the phone a few times and have started installing apps on it.
After work on Thursday I went to campus for class this evening. Today’s lectures wrapped up World War II and covered the Korean War. Class was dismissed at about 7:45 which left plenty of time before ballroom tonight. I had something to eat at the Rat before heading to the Reily Center. Turnout was a bit light this evening. I think there were about 16 to 20 people total. This was the second week of Jive and I don’t feel I’m getting any better at it.
I took the day off on Friday and got a few things done but not as much as I would have liked. Before going to work on Saturday, I pulled up a tree in our little patio/courtyard in front of the house. I thought my work was done with it out of the ground but Mom wanted help chopping it up too. I was much too lazy to go after it with a hand saw so I brought out the only power saw in the house, a circular saw and cut it up that way. I wouldn’t call it the right tool for the job but the job got done.
The evening at WVUE wasn’t too bad. There was plenty of news. We had a city council runoff election to cover. Ed Chervenak was in studio to provide commentary. We led with the story of a missing executive from Houston who went missing Friday. We don’t usually lead with missing persons but the man in question is a millionaire CEO of an energy company which makes it national news. We also had a couple murders to deal with.
I left for the evening at 9:45 and met Andrey and Romy at the Attiki Bar & Grill on Decatur. It’s a nice Mediterranean themed place. This was my first time there and I was pretty impressed. My friends had been there since nine. I had a couple drinks there with them and we moved on to the Davenport Lounge at the Ritz, formerly known and referred to here as Melange. It took a while to score good seats but Andrey finally landed a sofa in front of the stage. We stayed there to listen to the music until about 12:30 when Andrey wanted to head home. I took a cab that was parked in front of the hotel. Later in the evening I talked to Krystle on the phone before bed.
