Good and Chill Jamz: Wild at Heart by Alfred Hall (Pegato Remix), plus: I Went There: Foster City / San Diego

Greetings reader! Not much to report this week, as per usual. We have a good and chill jam courtesy the internet. Perfect for your weekend morning or your weekday commute. Or any time you feel like a good and chill jam. You do you. Free download!

The week took me to a decent hotel in Foster City, which I had never paid any attention to but is now a hotbed of commercial activity because it is much cheaper than, and adjacent to, San Francisco. Meeting was good but the highlight was catching up with Ze Newbs at lunch, who works in the area. Fun for me.

Later in the week I had to go to a very expensive work dinner down in San Diego, so I made my way there and stayed in an impressively janky hotel, in theory to save my employer some money. The dinner (including tax and tip) was over $400 a plate. Good thing I made an effort to save some cash on that hotel stay! I would have much preferred if they took me somewhere for $100 a plate and then handed me $300 in cash. That would have been much excellent. Dinner bill was inflated in part by the drinks and wine but it was mostly food. (I skipped the drinks - I almost never drink at work dinners. This confuses people sometimes but I don't drink at work during the day so why would I drink at work during the evening?) Nothing like corporate-sanctioned gluttony to make you want to stab yourself in the eye with a fork.
