Monday so far

I turned the computer off at 11:30 p.m. or so.  Considering I'd been up and around for much of the time before, that wasn't bad.  I sat up in the blue recliner until about 12:30 a.m.  I was going to fix myself Sweet Dreams tea, but I closed my eyes and next woke up at 2:30 a.m.  I gave up on the tea and went to bed.  I don't think it took me all that long to get to sleep again.  I woke for the day at 8:45 a.m., so that probably was roughly eight hours sleep.

Barnes & Noble is having a reading of To Kill a Mockingbird.  I am thinking of going.  I also need to see if A. got my texts.  We had scheduled a phone chat, but I couldn't hear anything because of the concert before the fireworks.  I sent him texts to that effect.  It was nice to visit with A.J., though.

Slightly later: A. texted to say he'd gotten my texts.  We're going to try again for Wednesday.

Later: I went to Barnes & Noble and was very bad.  I got the DVDs of "Vicious," a British TV show.  I heard a recording reading To Kill a Mockingbird, but no one was sitting there listening.  I didn't want to start listening partway through.  I got a new Nook, which was the very bad part of my behavior.

I chatted a little with Riah.

Later still: I chatted with Jamie a little.  Mostly I ranted about e-readers.  Poor Jamie.  Zie mostly reads fan fiction, so nothing I was saying was applicable to zir.  I wrote an e-mail to A. telling him all about my e-readers.  I wrote to Pred, who was up at some ungodly hour English time, and she said she'd try to write back tomorrow -- or later in her today.  She said her new show that she's a fan of is a fantasy Regency sort of thing.  Pred said that the language was coming easily to her, from reading Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer.  I said that Georgette Heyer made words up.  Many of the expressions she used weren't actually Regency cant.  And all the Regency romance authors borrow from her.  Although I guess it doesn't matter if the words are real in fan fic about a fantasy show.

J. sent a video of Morris the dog going after a rabbit.  Maybe Morris could have gotten it if he were a whippet, but Morris is a puggle, and at least the pug half of his ancestry was not built for speed.  Besides, the rabbit wasn't far from a hole in the fence.  I'll have to show Mom and Dad the video.
