Nekkid Men and Women
Yes, at bookgroup we discussed why ERB's characters were so often nekkid. Of course, it's because he was writing pulps! I took my Eee and paua shell to show off at bookgroup and it turns out the library has Wifi so I connected instantly (last night, while I was just checking it, I scammed onto a neighbor's Wifi). We had a discussion of ebook readers, so when I got home, I sent out the URL of the page in Charlie's Diary where there was a discussion. We took our annual Christmas picture, which Steve gave a stfnal background before he came late to dinner. We ate at Potbelly's - a counter-type sandwich, soup, salad place. I hadn't been there before because I had figured I couldn't carry the tray, but Jackie carried it for me tonight. I had a roast beef sandwich, chicken noodle soup, and the first milkshake I've had in decades. It was all good.
Since tomorrow is the death of the sun, I wore my Minicon 40 t-shirt with the Death of Rats and the Death of Cheese. Hmmm, it's sold out again. I wonder if that's good or bad. Maybe we should have more made. I also took my Winter bowl (back before the nephrologist had me stop taking cyclosporine and I had a lot more energy, I used to do ceramics and I have a bowl for each season, plus an earth-from-space bowl) and some chocolate-coated, candy-covered sunflower seeds in red & green. Fortunately, a lot were eaten because I will eat too many too soon of what's left.
Everybody else was Christmassy in one way or another, so when we left Potbelly's, they were wishing each other Merry Christmas and the silly one wished me happy Saturnalia. Like I'm pagan or something.
