Saturday so far

I went to bed around 2:30 a.m. and woke at 10:30 a.m., so that wasn't too bad.

I got gasoline and Mom and I went to the grocery store.  I thought about going to the Nook class at the local Barnes & Noble, but it would have meant going out to the same area that had lots of traffic again, and in a hurry by the time we'd unpacked the groceries and put them away.  Besides, I'm pretty familiar with how to use the e-reader.

I read Min's part of Split Screen.  I had remembered it pretty well.  I may read The Elephant of Surprise again tonight.

I saw an article about a white celebrity wearing blackface to a Halloween party.  I thought it was general knowledge that that was offensive, but apparently it isn't.  There are plenty of whites who don't care that that's offensive, but they're aware.  I was familiar enough with the history of it to want an informal debate about it set in a 1925 fic, but it was still being debated then, and not a consensus.  Some of the characters would have thought it was offensive then, as was the real life thought in some quarters at the time.  It's a consensus about it being offensive in the U.S. now, and has been for some years.

Later: I skimmed through The Elephant of Surprise.  I remembered what I'd read a few days ago.
