Friday so far

I have had a lot of Friday so far.  I got sleepy around 11:00 p.m. Thursday, and lay down at 11:30.  I don't think it took me too long to get to sleep, but I woke up an hour later.  I think I might have slept between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m.  I got up at 5:00 a.m.  I tried to go back to sleep at 6:00, but no dice.  I'm not too happy about this.

I decided I'd better have caffeine to keep me awake after I officially got up.  I looked at the various kinds of tea I have, and decided on Golden Chai Spiced Assam Black Tea.  I had some just with sweetener, then added cream.  I liked it better without the cream, but it wasn't bad.  I like chai.

I read over my Tumblr "year so far" post.  I hadn't expected to post about race there, but I reblogged some posts and tried to check my privilege.  I posted about disability.  A lot of times I was reblogging posts from Weeds, who is a disability activist.  I had the feeling that I'd post on GLBTQ issues.  I was identifying as bisexual, but I'm attracted to gentlemanly butches of any gender, so maybe it's better to say that I don't think I particularly have a sexual orientation one way or another.  But in college I was known as the "bisexual f*g hag" and I thought at the time that was accurate enough.  I was also called "a gay man in a woman's body," for my mannerisms and way of thinking, but I didn't agree so much with that.  I could identify with some effeminate gay men, but I didn't feel that I was a man.  Now I see the transphobia that the people who called me that had.  It was always gay men who had gotten to know me well who said that.  There wasn't anyone straight who questioned whether I was a woman, but I thought the straight people were oblivious about non-traditional expressions of masculinity.

Back in the present day, I called S.M.  It's supposed to be really nice out on Sunday, like 65 degrees F.  I don't want to go to a public garden, because they'd be terribly crowded, but I suggested going to a park to walk.

I need to go to the grocery store again.  I thought I'd gotten everything I needed yesterday, but no.  Hopefully it won't be too busy in the middle of the day.

Later: Dad and I went out and did a few errands.  I got gasoline, and we went to the grocery store.  At least I got out of the house.

As of early afternoon, I am very sleepy.  I want to stay up in hopes of sleeping more at night.  We'll see how that goes.

I lay back in a recliner between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., but I didn't sleep.
