Tuesday so far

I got sleepy last night around 1:30 a.m., and should have tried to go to sleep then.  I tried to go to sleep at 3:00 a.m., and of course I felt wide awake at that point.  I was lying there for a while.  I'm not sure how long it was, but I woke at 1:00 p.m.  I am going to assume that I slept for eight or nine hours.  I was doing better for a while there.

I was going to go to a Nook class, but confused the times.  I thought it was 4:00 p.m., but that's on Saturdays.  It's 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays.  I may try to go again later.  I went on up to the Indian grocery.  They had baingan barthe today.  That's one of the dishes with eggplant in it.  I believe it also has peanuts.  The lady helping me said it was good.  I said yes, that I liked the eggplant.  I got a couple of garlic naan.  I'd had brunch when I got up, but I had a little of the baingan barthe when I got home, and half a naan.  Dad said to open the windows in the kitchen.  I had thought about getting the Punjabi curry, but I figured that would be way too spicy for me.

It's pretty nice out, though Dad said there might be a thunderstorm later.  I went out to the winter honeysuckle, mahonia and sweet briar.  The shoots of the white lily-of-the-valley are greening up.  The lilacs are in bud.  'Pocahontas' has lots of buds.  I planted four o'clock seed in the pots with the lilies and nasturtium seed in the pots with the pansies.  I'll try to do more gardening tomorrow.

Later: I went to the Nook class, which was from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.  I was the only one there, so I got to enjoy individualized attention.  The associate, V., showed me a number of things.  I asked about deleting books I'd already read.  Nook books can be archived.  I meant the e-pub format books I'd gotten directly from publishers and read on the Nook, and also have on the desktop computer.  I would need to use the computer to do that, V. said.  I wanted to know how to lend books to TallCR.  I think I can do it using his e-mail.  I had downloaded and sideloaded books to the Nook, and read a few.  I'm pretty conversant with the "library" features.  V. showed me how to highlight words or passages, and how to look words up.  She also showed me several features of shopping.  I learned how to read a book in the store, or at least know that if it says "in store" on a banner over the cover I can do that.  You can read a book for free in the store for an hour.  It's a twenty-four hour period between times you can do that, and you can go back to the same book.  It doesn't bookmark your page, but I think that would be easy enough to find.  V. said I seemed to have the hang of e-readers pretty well.

Slightly later than that: I had a little more of the baingan barthe when I got home, and finished up the naan.  The baingan barthe seemed to have gotten spicier in the interim since I'd first had it.

I managed to delete the non-Nook books I'd already read from the Nook.  I'll experiment with downloading more, but I'd managed to download books from Samhain and AQP, and sideload various books I had on the computer in e-pub format.

Note to self: Saturday April 20th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.: "Archives, Affects and Activism: Preserving Queer and Trans Histories" at Giovanni's Room.

May 1: Online publication of Stone Butch Blues.  I think it's free that day.  I already have it in print.
