Odds & ends

It was a fairly uneventful week other than a lot going on at work. We have a team in from Washington doing some upgrades on our computers, so I went in for a while yesterday to do some testing.

John and I had dinner out at Carneros this past Thursday which was a nice switch-up for us! The rest of the week was pretty low-key.

I finished reading “Chip Wars,” and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. This weekend I read “The Forgotten Girls: A Memoir of Friendship and Lost Promise in Rural America,” by Arkansan Monica Potts. Thanks to Jackie for the recommendation – it was interesting and depressing, basically a chronicle of the author’s friendship with her childhood best friend and her friend’s decline into poverty, early motherhood, domestic violence, and drug use — and not a flattering portrait of our home state (probably deserved). John and I are watching “The Lincoln Lawyer” series and also started the Indian crime drama, “Kohrra,” which started slowly but has drawn us in.
