He brought his laptop, and we talked about burning CDs, as we thought that if I wanted the music he had on his computer, we'd have to make CDs, then put it on my computer. Then we discovered we had a shared library, since J. was using the house network for his laptop. We figured out how to enable the sharing, and I got a good bit of music from him. He has 900-odd albums, and he was getting a little anxious to get back to Baltimore after a couple of hours, but I got down to "F" on his album list. I got The Complete Recordings of Robert Johnson, some Red Hot Chili Peppers, some Green Day, and various other things. He was surprised by how many of the songs I had on my computer were ones he wanted to listen to. He didn't think we shared any taste in music at all, except for liking certain grunge and industrial bands. I don't share his liking of rap music, but I like rock, heavy metal and blues.
He also taught me how to burn CDs so I could put the music on my computer onto a disc. There were a lot of songs I had that I wanted to be able to listen to in the car, so I was happy about that. He's the one who teaches me how to use modern technology, and I don't see him very often anymore. I need to get the kids at [local university] to teach me technology things. KC tells me things, because he's a big technology geek like that, but it's hard to follow directions given by chat -- or I find it so. The way I learn is by someone showing me, then having me do it.
We'll see what else I do with my Sunday, but there will probably a lot of reading and surfing the Web. I have a good few hours of editing to do today, too, so I'll start on that after dinner. (Added: I seem to have found my role at Changeling. M. is the Troll -- that's what she calls herself. Jen is the Proofreading Goddess. Willa is an elf. I just declared myself one of the continuity fairies.)
Dad rescued my clivia yesterday, and I'm happy about that. He also brought in a geranium -- I think the rose one -- that's in a blue-and-white-glazed ceramic pot. It looks like some of the other geraniums survived the night, and I'd like to bring them in. I need to go buy Safer insecticidal soap, spray them, and find indoor homes for them. Perhaps I'll go pick some of the Safer soap up tomorrow. (Added: Dad said he'd sprayed all of the plants I wanted to save with insecticide already, yesterday while Mom and I were shopping. He planted the white ornamental kale as well. I think it looks nice with the purple.
