Hello everyone.  Time for the daily kitchen ceiling update.  My cell phone alarm did not go off because I had it set to “Ringer off”.  Personally I’d rather have the alarm go off regardless of the ringer setting.  However, my late start this morning meant that I was fifteen minutes late to work today, allowing me to witness the arrival of three painters.  Here is their ladder:

The kitchen ceiling now looks like this:

Somewhat fixed ceiling

Certainly not as nice as before but now the kitchen is usable again.  Tomorrow we will make tuna sandwiches to celebrate.

Here is my itinerary for next week:

Saturday, July 10, 2004
The long-awaited trip to Staten Island might occur on this date if I push hard enough.
Tuesday, July 13, 2004Maybe I will go see Fountains of Wayne play a free show.  It's first-come first-served, so I'm not sure if I would be able to make it in time.
Thursday, July 15, 2004My second audition time for "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" will hopefully see me get past the pre-test and get the interview.  I think I could kill in an interview, but maybe I'm overconfident.
Thursday, July 15, 2004 My roommate from this previous year, Mr. Leighton Ige, will visit New York City for the day.  We will probably go catch dinner.

On July 4, 2004, I found this stairway in a subway station:

Have a nice day.
