It was snowing. The weatherpeople had said we were supposed to get a storm in the evening, but there was already snow on the ground in the late morning.
I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp and read portions of "All the Other Ghosts."
I had an editing job to do that I'd gotten a little after midnight last night. I did it today.
I am not planning to go out driving. There are a couple of inches of snow on my car.
Later: I read some old posts Weeds had made. She's a brilliant writer. She's talking about Becky now. I thought Becky was doing whatever Sue said because she didn't know any better, until I read some posts Weeds wrote about how Becky was a BAMF. Then I started to think about it differently. Some commenters on the Backlot were saying they don't understand Becky, and that's true for me, too. I get about half her dialogue, if that. Part of it is that my auditory processing is not the best. Part of it is her articulation. When I get Glee DVDs, I watch episodes with a lot of Becky in them with the captioning on, and then I can appreciate the dlalogue. It's been a couple of seasons since it became clear that Becky wasn't doing everything Sue said. I think it was Becky knocking all those xylophones over.
I saw Artie as a person right away. Perhaps it was all my experience working in nursing homes, where many of the residents were in wheelchairs and some of them were still able to converse as well as they'd presumably ever been able to. Maybe it was partly from my reading about mobility impairments. It was quite obvious he understood everything that was going on, and wanted to actively participate. So I didn't have the prejudice there that I had for people with intellectual disabilities.
More thoughts later...
Later: I talked with A. for about forty-five minutes.
