After the rally, I sat for awhile and considered what to do next. I eventually decided that since I was already on the 6 line, I might as well go to Union Square, and get poke for lunch, and go to the Strand and Forbidden Planet.
So I went to Union Square, and since I got out on the far side of the park, I had a nice walk through it. I went to the poke place, and ate. Delicious. Then I realized there was a street fair all down 4th Ave in front of the poke place. So I walked all along that and looked at everything. All I bought was a mozzarepa, which is a Mexican sweet corn meal cake layered with mozzarella, and soooooo good.
After that I went to the Strand, and browsed. I gave some readers advisory to a pair of young men who were trying to pick out a Terry Pratchett for one of them to read for his first taste of Discworld. I recommended Guards, Guards. I ended up getting an Octavia Butler novel for me, I've always meant to read her and this seemed like a good occasion.
After that I briefly went into Forbidden Planet, but I was getting pretty tired so I decided to go home. Luckily the problem with the 7 train was resolved, so I was able to just take the 6 to Grand Central and the 7 from there. I got a Taro slush from the bubble tea place when I got to Flushing, and then I came home.
I Skyped for a nice long time with the FWiB, which was lovely. And then I read in the ac in the bedroom and fiddled on my phone til it was time to make my nightly call to Oldest Brother.
I'm tired but it was a good day. Just sorry mashfanficchick couldn't make it.
