late Thursday and Friday so far

I got very sleepy around 8:00 p.m. Thursday night, but fought hard to stay awake.  I watched Glee, which I wrote about in my previous post.  Then I watched a show on Bravo called "Kathy" because Chris Colfer was on it.  Kathy kept saying he was fourteen or eleven or nine.  He did get to say at one point that he was twenty-two.

I had an early midnight snack and watched the episode "Naked" again.  I finally went to sleep somewhat after 1:00 a.m., perhaps 1:30 or so.  I woke at 5:30 because my foot was all cramped up, then went back to sleep and slept until 9:30.  I woke up feeling kind of bad, quite headachy.  Some Advil helped with that.  I registered to go see an ikebana demonstration at the Jenkins Arboretum.  I'm not sure I've ever been there, and I think it's something of a drive, but I'm going to carpool with S.M.  She knows where it is.

(*spoilers*)

The Powers That Be of Glee put up a video for the song "Diva" in next week's Glee.  The episode is titled "Diva" as well.  The video had some intense amounts of queerness, which is nothing unusual for Glee.  Dream-sequence Blaine queened out.  It was marvelous.  We saw that in Blaine's mind, he is fabulous.  I think GleekTO had it right when she said from seeing a still from "Diva" that Blaine was celebrating his queerness.

Unique was fabulous, too.  She shows it as often as she can, though.  Although she has to wear boy clothes to school, she's still fierce inside.

The episode will have Kurt and Rachel in a diva-off, too.  Kurt might not be dressing as outrageously this season, for the most part, but he's still, as Burt put it in "Wheels," "as queer as a three-dollar bill."

Nothing like this was on when I was a teenager, or in my early twenties.  I can't imagine what it must be like for teenaged GLBTQ kids to see gay boys, a lesbian girl, a bisexual girl, and a trans/"genderescent" girl on TV.  I never thought there would be that much visibility of GLBTQ characters on a network show.

Added: The queening out I saw was especially this gesture in the first gif (http://sothinky.tumblr.com/post/42037883555/randomactsofdouchebaggery-dont-touch-do-not) with arm waving and index finger up.  I've seen that gesturing before in real life.
