Friday so far

I tried to go to sleep at 1:00 a.m., and that didn't work.  I got up briefly at 2:30 a.m., and then tried again.  I think I must have finally dozed off around 3:30 a.m. or so.  I woke at 11:15 a.m.  So I probably got eight hours of sleep, but slept an hour and a half later in the morning than I would have liked.

I got the free Nook book of the day.  It's about a virus that makes people superhuman.  It doesn't sound like a new plot to me, but I got it because I thought Dad might like to read it.  He said he'd probably bring the Nook with him when we went to Florida.  I'm planning to bring mine.

It was quite foggy earlier, but it looks like the fog has lifted.  I don't have anywhere I particularly need to be, but I might go out in the evening.  I do want to send the DVDs I got from Big Box Bargains to A., and see if he can fix them.

Later: I got a story about HIV/AIDS education to proof.  I went through it, but will go through it again tomorrow.

I got a fic to beta read.

I ended up going out a couple of times after all.  I went with Dad on one trip.  We made a stop at the library to return Iron Man 3, and the inevitable trip to the grocery store.  We looked around at Staples, too.  An associate told us they would soon have computers on clearance, as they were getting new ones.

Mom and Dad and I went to the church book group's pizza and movie night.  That way you don't have to have read a book.  B.L. and A.L. were there.  The movie was Invictus.  It was partly about Nelson Mandela's presidency, with little flashbacks to his time in prison.  Most of the second half was about the South African rugby team, though.  It looked like a rugby team win was important symbolically, but I wish there had been more about the serious matters of the presidency.  Also, it made the captain of the rugby team very important in the movie, when I thought there were other characters who should have been more important in affairs of state.

The drive home was nerve-wracking, as a good bit of the water from snowmelt today had refrozen and it was foggy.  But we made it okay.
