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.
