Monday so far

There actually hasn't been much of Monday for me yet, because I slept until 1:00 p.m.  That was very bad.  I tried to go to sleep at 1:30 a.m., after staying on the computer until 12:30 a.m. (also bad).  I was awake at 2:00 a.m.  I'm not sure when I finally went to sleep.  My alarm went off at 10:00 a.m.  Mom told me when it was 10:15.  I said, "Thank you," and went back to sleep.  I should have gotten up then.

Mom and I went out and about.  She had another appointment with an ear, nose and throat specialist.  Dr. M. was on vacation, so she saw Dr. S.  Mom really didn't want to get "scoped" again ("No, no, no," she said), but eventually agreed to it.

I went to Staples to get sturdier jewel cases than I'd gotten at Wal-Mart.  I also got a few blank CDs.  Mom and I went to the grocery store.  I got things I would use, and brownies, which I didn't need, but which turned out to be very good.

I wrote back to WhiteSheepCBD.  I spoiled her for more of the things that are in The Three Musketeers.  I said I was trying not to like Constance too much, because I knew that in the book, Milady de Winter kills her.  I don't know what happens on the show, or what will happen in Rainjoy's fic.

I found last night's episode interesting.  I think it was episode 7.  Ninon de la Roque (sp?) was accused of witchcraft and of having sex with the girls she was educating.  I said to WhiteSheep that in my reading I had seen that witchcraft and sodomy often became conflated.  Also sodomy and treason, I added.  Ninon became yet another person that Milady de Winter betrayed.  Athos was there, and yelled that she was a liar and a criminal.  He didn't explain her identity to the other Musketeers.

Next episode is about whether d'Artagnan becomes a Musketeer.  I know that eventually he will.

Later: Dad and I watched episode 7 of the "The Musketeers," Dad for the first time.  I think he's enjoying it.  The accusations Milady de Winter made in the episode were sort of a reflection of the accusations she made against the Duke of Buckingham to Dumas' version of John Felton.  Dumas had it that Milady was the cause of the duke's death, by accusing him of drugging her and having his way with her, in her story to the fictional Felton.  There actually was a real John Felton, and there was a real Duke of Buckingham.  Dumas made an interesting mix of history and pure fiction.  His main characters are fictional, but some of the nobility and the Cardinal de Richelieu were real.  I loved finding out that there really was a Captain Treville of the Musketeers.

Later still: I chatted with Jen the Proofreading Goddess for a while.
