Thursday so far

I read "First Footer" again last night.  What can I say?  I think it's one of the best cat people from outer space stories I've read.

I made it to a 2 p.m. appointment, then went and worked at the secondhand bookstore for an hour or so.  I put away some paperbacks and then straightened out the romance section.  I said hi to S.G.  I got a mystery by Victoria Thompson, Murder on Lexington Avenue.  I have the first several in the series.  I enjoy historical mysteries generally, and this series, the Gaslight Mysteries, in particular.  It at first seemed that Sarah and Frank would have a romantic relationship, but that seemed to have fizzled out over the last few books, and I got discouraged.

I copy edited an article, and got the book The Golden Age of Gay Fiction.  I figured I was never really going to save enough for the hardcover, so I got the e-book.  It only comes in PDF and html.  The writing is in two columns, which wouldn't be bad, but at 100%, the page is outside the margins of the computer screen.  It's readable, if small, at 75%.  Perhaps I'll try to figure out how to work the html.  I think you can only read that online?

I went out to a popular local Italian restaurant that we go to frequently enough for a takeout dinner.  I got steamed shrimp and manicotti.  They were good.

I called S. before I went to the bookstore, to see what he was up to.  He said he was going to start a double shift of his on-campus job in an hour, and that would take him up until 2:30 a.m.  He'd probably be with his boyfriend in [nearby county] Friday and Saturday, he said.  We discussed maybe getting together Sunday.

I'll post on what I read, but that's about it for the day.
