Friday so far

I turned off the computer around 10:30 p.m.  I stayed up until 1:30 a.m.  I don't think it took me too long to get to sleep.  I woke at 8:00 a.m., but managed to get back to sleep.  I got up with my alarm at 10:00 a.m.

I chatted with Riah for a while.  I windowshopped e-readers again.  I finally, finally got it together enough to get to the post office to send Riah a hoodie.  She'll probably get in July, but at least she'll be able to use it next winter.  I went to the mall and got eel sushi and jasmine bubble tea.  After I got home, I took pictures of the bee balm.  There's one lone cornflower blooming in the raised bed.  I chatted with Jules for a bit and chatted with Riah again for a while.

We have marriage equality in the U.S.  It's all over my Tumblr dash.  I am happy, of course.

Slightly later: Whenever I chat with Jules, I ask after Predatrix.  Jules said it was all right to communicate with Predatrix directly, so I wrote a long e-mail.  We don't have much in the way of fandoms in common, though I've read the Harry Potter books and watched the various Star Trek series.  Pred is big into Doctor Who.  Dad used to watch Doctor Who, but it was a long time ago.  I think that was the fourth(?) Doctor, the one with the long, colorful scarves and curly hair.  I know that the current Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, who played the Cardinal de Richelieu on "The Musketeers."

I'm not sure if Pred is into "Sherlock."  I got into it by reading "Northwest Passage," then watched all the episodes so far in a period of about three weeks.  As I said to her, I didn't go into spirals about cliffhangers watching it that fast.  I read the straight romance novel that "Northwest Passage" was turned into, The Longest Night.  I personally liked the fic better, but that's me.  Kryptaria is still writing slash, though, including some very good Avengers slash.  Also she wrote a story for the m/m romance group on Goodreads, under another name.

Later: A. had sent me a text about marriage equality at 11:00 a.m.  I saw it at 8:30 and sent a text back.  We texted back and forth a bit.

I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for some time.  We talked about diversity in media, including in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  I said that the new Johnny Storm must be the half-brother or stepbrother of Sue.  I guess it's a reboot the way the new Nick Fury is the illegitimate son of the old Nick Fury.  I've got to try harder to get over my knee-jerk racist reactions to the racebending in the movies.  I think part of it is having seen the pictures of the characters so much in all those older comic books.  But I know I am in the wrong.
