Sunday so far

I wanted to go to Outfest, but it's been raining here, and is kind of cold.  I didn't want to walk around several blocks in Philadelphia in the rain.  For once, getting up early wasn't a problem.  Perhaps it was, because I went to bed at 1:00 a.m., woke at 2:00 a.m., went back to sleep and woke at 6:00 a.m.  I'm very tired now, but I don't want to take a nap in the afternoon, because then I won't sleep tonight.

I decided to do something useful, and went to start a load of laundry, but there wasn't any detergent left.  I went out to the grocery store and got detergent.  Well, it got me out of the house, even if it wasn't an exciting trip.  Mom is working tonight, so I'm thinking of going to get dinner from the Indian grocery store.  I could cook some basmati rice first, and then get a meat or vegetable dish.  I enjoyed the eggplant selections they had the last couple times I was there.  I've posted many, many times about getting chicken tikka masala there.

I have an editing job to work on.  I'll try to do that tonight.

I called A.C., who is back in southeastern Pennsylvania.  She just got back yesterday and, like me, wasn't that thrilled at the idea of wandering around Philadelphia in the rain.  We decided to go to Philadelphia another day.  I called S.M., and we're going to meet up on Tuesday so I can help her open and save attachments.  Hopefully I'll be able to actually do that.  She thinks I have magical powers with the computer.  I texted A., and he'll try to give me a call tonight.

I had posted to a couple of Glee blogs about reading The Velvet Rage, and thinking that it could apply to Blaine.  The bloggers thought it sounded interesting.  I've seen secondhand various complaints that Blaine was acting out of character in "The Break-Up."  Since one of the creators of the show was writing him, I don't think he was out of character.  Sabotaging his relationship with Kurt, yes.  I think they'll be broken up for much of the rest of the season.  If Glee is renewed for a fifth season, they might be broken up well into the fifth season.

I think I will advise people wondering what's going on with Blaine to read The Velvet Rage.  It makes what's going on with Blaine psychologically make perfect sense.  That could be Blaine's story this season.  I said after "Makeover" that he might have a story about racism.  Now I think there's a better chance that Blaine's story is going to be about being a gay man.  I still think he'll have more hookups, even though he loves Kurt.  Blaine's mental state isn't going to get better any time soon, in my opinion, without some therapy.  If he's full of rage and covering it up, and not knowing what his authentic feelings are and how to find contentment within himself instead of wanting external validation, he's got a good bit to work through.

I put in the tag "gay-related" because of the book.  Well, and because of the characters, too.

Later: I worked on the editing job.  I ended up going out to an Italian take-out place, and getting fettucine pescatore for dinner.  I got a lot of laundry done after all.

Later still: I talked with A. for about an hour.

Added thoughts: Like all the characters on Glee, Blaine is damaged.  He was just usually pretty good about covering up his damage.  I'm still wondering what the reactions from the younger fangirls are.  I've seen bits of it secondhand.  Now that I feel like there's an explanation, I'm not as sad.  I think it will make for good drama.  Glee has told a number of stories about gay characters.  This is another part of Blaine's story.  It's not an appealing part, but it's a story that happens.  Here's hoping for Blaine to get help.  At least he knew the name of the guy the first time he had casual sex.
