Still unplugged, if you can count life with a Blackberry as unplugged. No end in sight, and more storms later this week. Hrmph.
I did whip out a granny square cloth from the pattern in the back of Hooked on Murder (link to previous post). I got sunburned on Saturday morning, but otherwise had a lovely time at the farmers market. Then, we went to the fair Saturday evening for the Knight’s much-needed funnel cake fix. (His looked a lot like that, with cinnamon sprinkled on top of all that powdered sugar.)
Yesterday was another busy day. Ironically, during this unplugged at home phase, I added Barnes & Noble’s Nook to my stable. I’d really thought I wanted a Kindle, but the Knight kinda’ pressured me to buy the e-reader NOW, rather than the arm load of books I had to survive the rest of the siege until internet is restored at home.
I think I’d like Kindle’s little keypad better than Nook’s touchpad, but for now, Nook and I are getting to know each other. That’s my only obvious concern 12+ hours into the purchase, so it’s hardly buyer’s remorse. There’s something to be said for being able to buy it NOW, and while Amazon and Target have partnered on the Kindle, my local Target was sold out last week, and Amazon is now saying the next generation of Kindle is sold out and won’t be available until early September.
Anyway, stay tuned for more about Nessy. Yeah, like everything, my Nook got a name. This one wasn’t even me being quirky… When I was setting up my profile, “they” wanted to know what to call my Nook. (Don’t ask. It was late, and I was sitting in the car at the scene of an alarm activation, because that’s the kind of date night fun we have in podunk. So, Nessy it is.)
I know a handful of you have Kindles. Anyone else have the Nook?
Oh – and how was your weekend?
