Cooling off

Autumn has officially arrived, both time and weather-wise. The weather this week is supposed to be rainy with highs only in the 50s and low-60s. I turned on my furnace for the season Saturday night and put an extra blanket on my bed.

I was too tired to go to a Happy Hour meet last night. This meet was held at the Jose Muldoon's east location near my neighborhood.

Shorter hair and fuller fridge

I got my hair cut today. Later, I did some food shopping since I'll miss my Friday family dinner this week. I couldn't find Garlique tablets at King Soopers, so I got a different brand.

I'll be working the last shift of the KRCC membership drive Friday night. I've worked enough hours during the drive to make up for the weekend of Furry Fiesta. The Christmas vacation I'm thinking of taking would happen during the week to avoid missing work, leaving Monday afternoon/evening and coming home on Friday. I really want to attend BLFC this year, but I may have to miss it again. At least DenFur is starting up in 2018 to replace the defunct RMFC.

Bundling up more at night

The KRCC membership drive started last Wednesday. The fall drive usually begins in mid to late-October, but it was moved up to September for some reason. Since the weekend programming has moved to at least partial automation, the programs had fixed breaks of three to seven minutes. This is a bit easier for me since I don't have to do any math to figure out how long the breaks need to be (e.g.: 5 breaks with 23 minutes of talk time means each break should average 4:36 each.) There was no pitching on Sunday, but one member came by the studio to submit a pledge. I have a few phone shifts that will conflict with a meeting and my Friday dinner; I was moved to these shifts when the station decided to just use an answering service during the shifts I wanted to work.

On Saturday night, I needed to wear sweat pants to bed since the temperature at night is starting to drop down to autumn levels. This week, I'll probably add a blanket to my bed since the low temperatures will dip into the 40s.

While my rental car was at the car wash last Friday, I bought a car cell phone holder that attaches to the A/C vents. Having the phone closer to eye level will allow me to use the GPS without taking my eyes off the road, and also hear any directions or other audio better. Also, the A/C can cool off the phone since it occasionally gets hot when operating/charging in the car for a while. The cell phone battery I ordered on Amazon was out of stock, so it won't arrive with the SD card and a new mouse. I found another seller and ordered a battery there.

This weekend, the owners of the web site shut down the site. As a result, the Funday Pawpet Show decided to shut down after 17-18 years. I began watching FPS in 2009 and made it part of my regular Sunday night entertainment. I'll definitely miss it.
