    Balance on my metrocard. Needed to make sure it will get me to work on the train tomorrow.

    A new church.  The pastor was really good and the people very nice however the music is too loud, not good for my tinnitus, it makes it worse.  The music was unbearably loud.

    Try wearing ear plugs. It works for me at the movie theater. I don't have tinnitus, but I don't do well with how loud it is.

    Odd banging noises in the street one block over. 0730 is quite early for them. They are moving construction equipment.

    Mentally and physically checked out a couple of minutes early from a job setting.

    (Unsure if that counts since that did involve being around people - - I needed to be alone, had done everything and I left.)

    But, here's my next answer --  I checked out the calories for a 12-ounce can of RC Cola and Faygo Cola. (160 vs 140)

    I like both of those colas.

    The last thing I checked out was gasoline prices in the area, because I didn't want to pay $7+/gal.

    I'm always looking for something interesting on line (I don't get out much). I found this the other day and I've been checking it out several times a day since then:
