I had Jasmine Pearl tea today.
Mom had wanted me to watch ice dancing last night. I told her that people were wrong on the Internet, so I was busy, but came down about half an hour later to watch the ice dancing she'd taped.
I thought it was good that Glee fic writers were trying to write a multiracial Blaine. Just as I think that many straight women writers of slash fiction and straight women authors of original fiction m/m romance don't really "get" writing gay characters, I understood people of color critiquing white writers who were not expert in portraying multiracial characters. I don't think a writer necessarily needs lived experience to write about a topic, and think that a number of women writers do well writing about gay men. I have my opinions about what women authors write gay characters well, and I like to see if gay men like Uly, TallCR and PaperMoon agree with me in my opinions about certain authors writing empathetically. I don't feel I have enough information to judge whether a hapa-pilipino character is written accurately.
Later: I saw Dr. K. I'd put on a few pounds. He said my triglycerides were a little high. I said I'd been eating a lot of starches and sweets, and should be eating more vegetables. He asked about my thinning hair, whether it seemed I'd had any more hair loss. I said I thought it was about the same. I asked if there was anything for that, and he laughed quite a lot. He is bald. I said I knew there was Rogaine, and he said that there was Rogaine for Women. He too thinks I should be getting exercise. All the health care people I see say that. I said I'd been thinking of joining a Y.
I went to the grocery store. I picked up fish for dinner, tilapia filets. I cooked basmati rice when I got home.
I looked on Wikipedia, and learned that there is a new Nick Fury, Nick Fury, Jr., who looks just like the movie version. So it wasn't exactly just racebending the original character. I liked the old one. I haven't read any comics with the new one. I suppose I am being reactionary.
Later still: Mom and I watched "New York." I think we first started watching Glee together a few weeks ago when we were snowed in, and now Mom's seen two seasons. I had her watch "Funk" before "Theatricality." That was the originally intended running order, and how it aired in the reruns.
