April 2nd, 2003
First, obligatory work notes: There was a first-week schedule of reading documentation prepared for me to follow this week. However, I've basically finished all of it, or at least a first pass through everything. One of the other developers says he'll quiz me a bit tomorrow to see what I've picked up. I'm hoping it will show me what sections of the documents are the most important (and therefore need a good re-reading).
Homelife time then. I took a different route home this evening, as I'm still searching for the best route home. Tonight was pretty good, although it did involve using a toll road, and I don't know if it improved on the free route enough to qualify as my main path.
Anyway, I got to the apartment complex and, once inside the parking lot gate, called Lis so she could meet me outside for tonight's shopping trip. I managed to come around the lot before she was out, so I had to pull aside and put my blinkers on. I would swear that some people (walking in the parking lot) gave me the meanest stares I've ever experienced as I waited for Lis. *sigh*
Lis had already decided where our main shopping would be, but hadn't picked out a place for dinner. This escalated in my head a bit, and resulted in some tense emotions for me. I guess I had expected that once we were out here Lis would never have a problem picking a place for dinner ever again. Obviously not the right assumption to have made. We ended up sitting in the car in a McDonald's parking lot for a good 20, maybe 30, minutes before I got under control again and we went in to eat.
The shopping trip went okay; we managed to pick up all the items on the list Lis had made, as well as a few other things that we realized were needed once we were there (such as Q-tips!).
So that was my day.
Current Mood: tired

Not really. The resident of the unit next to me (#102
) said Hi once while we were unloading stuff, but other than that I've not met any of my neighbors. Meeting new people is just something that I don't tend to do.
Recently, I've discovered that this apartment complex draws a significant resident population of UC-Irvine students. Although I've not heard any parties or such going on.
So I guess that means that there are some people close to my age, hopefully without kids, whom I could meet. I just have to figure out how to do it. Hopefully, at some time, there may be a complex-wide event where I can mingle with people. Either that, or I'll just have to get the swim trunks on and go hang out at the pool for a while.
At least... I hope I answered the right question. ^_^
College kids, eh? hehe... you know you got a bunch of stoners in the complex. ;)

Well... I would swear that one night, as we were coming home, I could smell pot in the air as we walked past one particular apartment (apt on the second floor)... could here a little group up there chatting away as well.
Tee hee... We are EVERYWHERE!
