Conversation with Katherine

Tuesday was a pretty good day overall. My Braille went well, though I need more practice on some of the level 2 short forms. I had a great conversation with Katherine. She and I are shockingly alike. I think we have a certain synergy, as many things she says either anticipate my own ideas or stimulate new approaches to the topic being discussed. I suspect she is outrageously competent at her job. I have a "homework" assignment: I have to write a letter to my new boss confirming our conversation and encouraging him to define some sort of position for me to come back to. This will enable AlphaPointe to make my training more specific and make it easier for me to be good at whatever new position.

Joe's grandparents are in Missouri. They will visit Kansas CIty this afternoon. I hope it will be painless. I like Joe and Bernadette. I expect we'll all have dinner together tonight. Joe mentioned a Japanese restaurant I found near Broadway and Westport. I don't know of Joe and Bernadette like sushi.

I haven't listened to my Wednesday schedule as yet (they give it to me on a cassette tape) so the day is a mystery. *sigh*

(no subject)

I've just returned from dinner with Joe and Lisa and Joe's grandparents, Joe and Bernadette. We went to a restaurant mentioned to me by Shaojun - Go Jo. It is a Japanese Steak House. It was a good experience.

Lisa had never been to such a place and was pleased. Joe and Bernadette are wonderful people We got along very well. I am pleased they decided to visit. They spent the evening with my mother yesterday and hit it off well.

I had one bad experience at the restaurant. I discovered that my vision no longer permits me to use chopsticks. What a massive pisser! I mean, really, it's not important but I just hate finding one more thing I can't do. I can still manipulate the 'sticks but I can't see my food well enough to cope with them. With a fork I can just scoop away. Chopsticks are way too selective a form of dinnerware.
