Monday so far

I stayed up for a while after talking with A.  I finally tried to get to sleep around 2:30 a.m., but got up and snacked.  I'm not sure what time I actually fell asleep, but I woke up at 12:15 p.m.

I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp for half an hour and read more of Once Upon a Tower.  I've gotten through 200 pages now.  Dear Author wasn't kidding about this book being in the category of romances in which the sex is bad for one or both protagonists at first.  In this book, they were both virgins.  He's enjoying it and she's faking it.  I hope they'll discuss it sooner or later.

I got an editing job to do, and worked on that.  I want to read through it again, but I feel pretty good about it.

The parental units went to the outlets in Lancaster to go shopping.  If they stay there for dinner, I might go to the nearest Chinese restaurant that has a buffet.  The restaurant also has sushi and teriyaki chicken, so it's a variety of Asian dishes.

Later: Mom and Dad didn't stay at the outlets for long.  After dinner, I went with Mom to the grocery store to get a turkey.  I felt that I should get out of the house.  It was a cold day today.

Later still: I saw that Fandom for Equality had written a letter about Kurt and Blaine not kissing.  While I don't count kisses like they do, I notice when a situation seems like it would be a reasonable place to kiss.  I said all through the third season, on AfterElton (now the Backlot) and here and probably other places that it wasn't safe for Kurt and Blaine to kiss in the halls of McKinley like Finn and Rachel did.  I did think they could have had a few private scenes where they kissed.  I still feel like I'm kind of in the middle ground with it.

I feel like I should be happy about Santana and Dani dating, but the biphobia kind of ruined it for me.  Also, I'm not a fan of Santana because she's verbally abusive.  Nothing at all against the actress -- from everything I've heard she's a lovely person.  I don't tend to like mean characters.

It's great that there's representation.  I don't expect gay characters on American network TV to have scenes like between Deniz and Roman on Alles Was Zaehlt or Christian and Olli of Verbotene Liebe, or even Tom and Ulli back in 2000.  But I feel like most of the scenes with Kurt and Blaine could just as easily be homosocial.  Somewhere there's a happy medium.
