A pleasant shiny November afternoon smelling sweetly of woodsmoke. Transferred necessities to my purse and debated- art gallery or Museum? Museum is closer so museum it was. With a huge lineup of parents and kidlings- what we do on a Sunday afternoon. So checked the gift store in case they had something that might serve as a tablet stand (one never knows with the ROM) then took off to Indigo books along the street, which sells ereaders and possibly something to hold them? But no. 'We had bookstands once but everyone hated them so now we don't.'

Ah well. I know I have two invalid tables at home in some closet somewhere, so went looking and found the bamboo one (the other is under the scanner in the study.) Found also hurray a box of cassettes with all the ones I was missing, so there's that satisfaction. Typing is marginally easier with the table, so grateful there too.

Will admit grudgingly that a tablet is a marvellous thing and I'd be happy with a desktop that had these capabilities if only it didn't involve learning a whole new OS. With a tablet I'm not *too* worried about poking around and tapping things, which I gather is how you're supposed to learn technology these days. In my day, when you did that, you corrupted hard drives and erased the whole OS.

Also this tablet does hold a charge, which makes me realize that my phone very much does not.

Off to see if I can find autocorrect on this thing.
