Tuesday so far

I turned off the computer at 11:05 p.m. or so, so I was pretty good that way.  I reread Storm Grant's Few Are Chosen.  I would describe it as a m/m New Adult supernatural comedy romance.  Unless New Adult books are required to be serious and depressing and traumatic for the characters.  In which case it isn't New Adult.  I had my chamomile tea and went to bed a little after midnight, but didn't fall asleep.  I was hungry.  I'd had a relatively light dinner.  I got up at 1:00 a.m. and had a late midnight snack, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I don't think it took me a long time to get to sleep after that.  I woke at 9:15 a.m., feeling a little groggy still, but decided to get up for the day.

I saw people wishing Te a happy birthday, and joined in.  I wrote to J.  Mom wants me to go to the grocery store, and I probably will.  I texted some with WhiteSheepCBD.

Later: I went to Staples to see if they had e-reader cases.  They had lots of tablet cases.  The 7" and 8" tablet cases were just a little too big for an e-reader with a 6" screen.  I enjoyed my windowshopping, anyway.  I got the groceries Mom wanted.  A.J. called to say hi.  I went to the beauty parlor.  So that was a fun thing for me.

I sent WhiteSheepCBD an e-mail all about e-readers.  She has an old Nook.  Jax and TallCR benefitted from my knowledge of e-readers.  Jax had the very first Sony e-reader offered in the U.S., the 500.  It lasted her several years.  For her replacement, Jax got a basic Kindle, the cheap one, the one of those lines that wasn't a touch screen.  She was used to pushing buttons to turn the pages.  She seemed to like it very much.  TallCR got a Nook and loves it.  Then he also got a Kindle, and then I think another Nook.  He agonized for months before getting his first e-reader, but then didn't look back.  But they were happy to hear what I had to say.

Predatrix was again up late in English time (Greenwich Mean Time or close to it?) and wrote back.  She's getting really into a show titled "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell."  I looked in the library catalog, and the book is available in the county library system here.  I am trying to get her into "The Musketeers."  We shall see.  I said I was reading a lot of A/B/O fic, and Pred wanted A/B/O with a female alpha.  Vo wrote a short Natasha/Clint fic in her Domestic Lives of Superheroes series. Someone is writing a Darcy/Bucky one, which really has a fair amount of world-building, as Vo's series does, too.  I am following that one.

Later: I saw that YMCA-P. had called.  I called him back and we talked for about half an hour.  So I talked to two "real people" friends today.

Later still: I read a modern day but pre-serum looking fic in which Steve works in IT and loves Celtic punk music.  Personally, I am not into the bagpipes thing at all, but J. is a huge Dropkick Murphys fan.  I will have him explain it.  I don't know what Flogging Molly is, but it sounds like the kind of books I avoid.  As in, pretty much the only straight BDSM book I've liked is Natural Law.  I have really gone off BDSM fiction of whatever gender of protagonist.

All in all it was a decent day.  It had its ups and downs, but the majority of my interactions with people were pleasant enough.
