later Friday and Saturday so far

Friday I read Dirty Laundry, by Heidi Cullinan.  It's another in the Tucker Springs series.  One's been published by AQP and two others by Riptide.  I'm not sure why.  I liked this one pretty well.  Adam and Denver were decent enough people.  Adam had really bad OCD and anxiety, and Denver had a history of being abused.  As with other of Heidi Cullinan's books I read, the protagonists were stronger together.  Since I have read others, I expected there might be BDSM, and there was a fair amount of bondage and what developed into a Sir/boy relationship.

There were transgendered secondary characters.  To some extent, they were there as advice-givers, but it was reasonable within the plot.  Louisa became a good friend to Adam.  She was a very sympathetic and likeable character.

Heidi's one of the authors I wish some other authors would read for getting the idea of how to write BDSM and Dom/sub relationships.

I lay down at around 11:00 p.m., and lay there awake for quite a while.  I didn't feel distressed.  I didn't feel a strong need to get up and do something.  I was probably awake for a couple of hours, because at some point I finally dozed off and woke at 9:30 a.m.  I was feeling okay, but slow to get going with anything productive.  Eventually around 1:15 p.m. I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp and finished reading Fixing Sex: Intersex, Medical Authority, and Lived Experience.  It was the second time I'd read it, or maybe the third.

RM the blogger (Racheline Maltese) put up a Letters from Titan post about constructing gender in Glee.  I said there that in "Diva," Blaine was queening out.  I said that that was the vocabulary I had for it.  People pick up all kinds of expressions from Letters from Titan posts.  I'm sure they'll get a caution not to use that around real people who are doing it.  I've said to guys' faces that they were queeny, and they accepted it as true.  I wish I could say that I said it more politely than that, and sometimes I did, but there were times that I said it outright.
