Tuesday so far

I got terribly sleepy by 10:00 p.m. Monday night.  I lay down not that long after 11:00 p.m.  It took me quite a while to go to sleep, and then I slept until noon.

I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp for half an hour.  I read a bit more of Just Before Jazz, and then I read some fic.  After I turned the computer on, I read "Thanatos, Eros" and other fic.  "Thanatos, Eros" was short.  That was by Lurkdusoleil (Riah).  I think she could easily be a published author.  I'll write her again about that.  I started reading a couple of popular (Cheerio!) Kurt and nerd!Blaine AUs.  Fics from before most of New Directions graduated seem to have taken place so long ago now.  Such different things happened with the canon characters in season four than fic writers could have predicted.

Lurkdusoleil posted that Rainjoy had updated "Grey," and I read the new chapter.

I'm thinking of going to the local Barnes & Noble for the Nook class, to get out of the house.  Basically I'm there for the sociability.

Later: I went to the Nook class.  I came up with a couple of questions.  I get a fair number of Nook books through Dear Author.  I have shelves on the Nook, but I don't always shelve the books I get via the computer on the Nook itself right away.  I was trying to figure out if I'd shelved some that I'd gotten recently.  I found that I had shelved some fics in my fic shelf right away, but I'd sideloaded those from the computer onto the Nook, so I had the Nook right there.  I also came up with questions about the Nook app on my phone.  I don't know how to do much with apps on the phone.  I want to show J. so he can show me how to use apps.

V. was the teacher of the Nook class, and she knew I knew how to do a lot with the Simple Touch Nook.  I was the only one there, so I went into the more complicated questions right away.  She said that the new Nook didn't have a place to put a micro-SD card, but I knew that books could be archived so as not to take up space.  I have about 150 items on the Nook, counting books, short stories and fic.  I had put some of the fics recommended by Biyuti on the Nook recently.

I said that I knew that the Barnes & Noble would be getting busy soon.  December is the big time.  A couple of Decembers ago, I remember seeing three people at a time at the Nook counter looking at the color Nooks and whatever else was the most sophisticated device at the time.  I think then they had the ones that were half-tablets, that did some of the things a tablet would and had some of the apps you could get on a tablet.

V. said that I could teach the class.  She said that in January they had three or four classes a week for the people who had gotten Nooks as holiday presents, and that they were huge classes.  I would imagine so.

I think it's good for me to get out of the house, so it was good I went out to the Nook class.

Later still: I worked on an editing job, and have another couple lined up for the next week or so.  I think it's good to keep busy.
