Thursday -- garden club

On Wednesday night, I chatted with Codeman for a while.  He had fallen down a rabbit hole reading posts about writing fiction and non-fiction about asexuality.  He gave me the link to the March Carnival of Aces roundup, and I fell down that same rabbit hole. I even printed out some of the posts so I could read them after I turned the computer off.

I ended up turning the computer off at 11:30 p.m.  I lay down at 12:30 a.m.  It took me a while to get to sleep, but probably less than two hours.  S.M. called at 9:00 a.m., but I was too groggy to answer.  The alarm went off at 10:00 a.m., and I got up then.

I got to garden club pretty much on time.  I took the minutes.  At lunchtime, S.M. gave me a birthday card, a pair of purple glass(?) earrings, and a box of paper roses.  The roses had probably been sprayed with rose oil, because they had a rose scent.  The program was about ferns.  It made me want to get more.  I have lady ferns and Japanese painted ferns, but during the ice storm a couple of years ago, tree branches bent severely over that garden.  The ferns are still there, but you can't get to them.  The speaker gave away a couple of pots of tommy crocuses.  I got a little pot of them that I need to plant.

When I got home, I looked at the fern stumps, or whatever they're called -- what the fiddleheads come out of.  There were several stumps, but they didn't seem to be doing anything yet.  I took pictures of the snowdrops in the front yard and back yard.  A yellow snow crocus was just coming up in the crocus garden.  I took a picture of that.  It turned out to be a nice day.

When I went inside, I wrote to Callie and Riah about the writing about asexuality posts.  I tried to figure out how to get in contact with FicDirectory, and ended up just sending her an ask.  I reblogged a post in which the writer said she was writing a novella-length Glee fic that had four of the characters being on the asexuality spectrum.  I'd be curious to read that.  I wouldn't agree with that interpretation, but it would be interesting to read something where the characters had those perspectives.

(Edited to add: I can actually see how someone could reinterpret things like that.  I am fascinated.)

A.J. called, and we talked for a little while.

I got an editing job, and worked on that.  It's one about dragons, related to the previous series about dragons, which was related to a series on shapeshifters.  It was cute, and easy reading in a good way.

Somewhat later: Apparently it's Autism Awareness Day.  I knew that April was Autism Awareness month, because Weeds hates April.  Since I don't search in the autism tags and I'm not a disability activist, I'll just reblog stuff that sounds reasonable to me.

In better news, Te posted her latest Musketeers fic.  A lot of it is dialogue, but so was a lot of The Three Musketeers.  The Instagram picture she linked to on AO3 didn't come up for me, but I'm sure it was good.

Later still: I e-mailed with various people, and chatted a little with Codeman.
