early Friday

Last night: I got very sleepy at 7:00 p.m., and slept from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and then again from perhaps 9:30 to 11:30 p.m.  I think that was about it.  I lay in bed for part of the time between midnight and 4:00 or 5:00 a.m.  I gave up and had breakfast around 6:00 a.m., then sat under the sunlight-effect lamp between 8:30 and 9:00.  I watched Mobile Tech's video reviews of the Nook with GlowLight and the Kindle Paperwhite before and after my time under the lamp.  As I noted in a recent post, I'm still mad at myself for getting the Kindle Touch the same week that the Kindle Paperwhite became available for pre-order, but I like the Kindle Touch well enough.  I just would have preferred something with a light.

Since that sunlight-effect lamp is quite bright, I read more of Lessons for Survivors under it.  The previous books, at least the Samhain editions, were available in multi-format, but I think Lessons for Survivors came in only e-pub format.  Presumably it also comes as a Kindle book.

I called about volunteering to teach a literacy class, which I take it is something like English as a Second Language.  The training for that is at a nearby synagogue that hosts a lot of community meetings and events.  I took Hebrew lessons there shortly after I graduated from college.

I got a new editing job just hours after I finished the last one, so I'll work on that today.  I'll probably go to the Indian grocery and get curry for lunch.  I may take a nap this afternoon, considering how little sleep I got.  I was doing relatively well with my sleep schedule this past week or so, too.

In the afternoon: I went to the Indian grocery and got goat curry, chicken tikka masala, basmati rice, and a garlic naan.  I had the meat dishes when I got home, and cooked some of the basmati rice.  I had the naan, which was fresh from being cooked when I got it.  They're so good when they're that fresh.  They have cilantro on them, too, and I like cilantro.  Either it had been a while since I ate anything but very bland food, or the masala and the curry were particularly spicy today, or both those things, but I could really feel it.

The rice had to soak for half an hour, then get to a boil, then be simmered for ten minutes.  I read a bit of Siren Song, which I'd read before, while I waited.  I'm partway through about six books, two of which I haven't read before.  Some I'll probably just put back on the bookshelves.
