I had made Word documents of Callie's LJ Glee episode reaction essays, and then over several days in January put them all together into one big document. It was slow because I kept stopping to read them. Today I printed out the big document. It was over 400 pages. It begins with an essay about the first thirteen episodes of Glee. The individual episode reactions start with season one, episode 17, "Bad Reputation" and go to season five, episode 3, "The Quarterback." I hope Callie will be able to do more episode reactions before the hiatus ends, but I saved her "First Thoughts" posts from Tumblr, too, so I have a bit to read about her thoughts on episodes 4 through 8 of season five.
I only saved the parts of the LJ entries relating to Glee, so I took out paragraphs about cross-stitch and Doctor Who, but aside from that my only alterations were fixing a few typos. I kept it in Australian English, or Commonwealth English, whatever it's called. Some of the posts I've saved from Canadian writers I've changed the spelling to Standard American English, but I didn't do that with Callie's writing.
Dad and I will probably go to Staples, as the laser printer is now out of toner. He uses it, and I printed out two drafts of Tiger Cub's YA science fiction novel, so it wasn't just printing out Callie's Glee essays that used up all the toner.
I wonder if Mom will want to watch first season episodes tonight. The next one would be "The Power of Madonna," and then if we get really ambitious, perhaps we'll watch "Home." I'm waiting for her to want to quit watching, but she's watched much more than I thought she would.
Later: We went to the opticians for Dad to get his glasses readjusted. We went to Staples and got more toner. We stopped at a liquor store to get sherry for Mom, and at a grocery store. I thought it would be good for me to get out of the house. It was cold out, but it was clear.
I used my three-hole punch on the essay pages, and put the document into binders.
I had Mom watch the "Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen" video, which is set in Rachel's room and really explains how Rachel and Jesse went from meeting each other to being in a romance. They sing the song together, Jesse calls Rachel an "ingenue," and they practice a kissing scene. That must have been their Friday night date, which went better than Finn's date with Santana and Brittany went. It's interesting to see it in context.
Mom and I watched "The Power of Madonna" and "Home." We're well into the second half of the first season. Perhaps we will watch through the first season.
Hedgerose posted a new chapter of (Def)inition, and I read that.
