I needed to figure out, that very moment, whether or not I could have lunch tomorrow with my brother. The meeting I had for 11 has been pushed to noon. He could meet me at 11:30. But this is a part of my brain I have outsourced to Outlook. I'm taking it back next month and returning to my classic Day Timer, but in the meantime I wanted to know now. I was driving. So I entered the web address to Outlook mail and checked the calendar. Phew. No cops.
So here's my answer. Put a sensor in the steering wheel so that if you drive with one hand for more than 20 seconds, it starts an alarm. Two hands on the wheel. It will save lives and stop cops from being petty.
I'm not sure whom I'm going to vote for tomorrow. I don't much care, but I'd like to pretend that I do. So I looked online for a sample ballot. It's very difficult to find one. I'm actually surprised. There are two Republican candidates for Governor. I'm going with Meg. I will not vote for Carly Fiorina. I would never vote for Jerry Brown again. I give no credence to the ballot initiatives, especially the insurance one. Here's my rant on that.
So there's this proposal that I've heard on the radio that would force insurance companies to make their discounts fungible. I think that's fundamentally retarded. If you get a discount from company A, it's because they consider you a good customer, why should company B be forced to give you the same discount? If Company B wants your business, they should give you the same discounted rate, but they shouldn't be required to by law. That's infernal.
My Kindle was stolen, or lost. I don't know which but I fall asleep crying. Now I *have* to buy an iPad, and I really didn't want to. Seriously.
