Friday so far

I went to bed around 12:30 a.m., because I was very tired, but I couldn't get to sleep.  My mind was still very busy.  I got up and lay down a couple of times.  I lay down again at 2:00, and probably got to sleep around 2:30 or 3:00 a.m.  I had set my alarm for 10:00, but lay down again, thinking that I would doze for a few minutes.  I woke at 11:00 a.m., which was later than I wanted to wake.

It's been quiet.  I have an editing job to finish up, but I already went over it pretty thoroughly.

Mom and I watched "Goodbye."  I said I had had to wait from May 22, 2012 to September 13, 2012 to find out what happened with Kurt.  I said that a lot of people quit watching after season two, and more quit after season three.  Mom said she would like to watch more, though.  She said maybe we could watch some over the weekend.  She'll get to find out very quickly what happens to Kurt, rather than waiting for over three months like I did.  Mom has already watched well over fifty episodes.  We started in winter, when we'd been snowed in.  We were snowed in for three days at a time at least twice.  So Mom's watched three seasons from December or so through April.

I got the free book from ARe, the free book from Barnes & Noble, and a free book from Dear Author's Daily Deals.

Later: I finished up that editing job.

I read through Callie's episode reaction essays for the end of the third season, then skimmed through the fourth season essays.  I read the first (and only) three essays of the fifth season and her Tumblr first thoughts posts for the fifth season.  Her speculation is basically what she wishes would happen, but I enjoy her analysis of what has already happened.

For a while, she called Kurt an apprentice psychopomp.  After "The Quarterback," her tag for Kurt is simply "psychopomp."  She calls Blaine the "hearthkeeper."  He has been doing his best to be the hearthkeeper these last few episodes, despite his issues.

When I saw Callie putting in placeholder posts for Glee essays from "A Katy or a Gaga" to "Previously Unaired Christmas," I had a feeling as the time got longer that she was never going to write those essays.  I was sad that what I guessed would happen proved true.  I wish the essays had ended with a happier episode, but I appreciate what we got.  She wrote an essay about the first thirteen episodes, and then from "Bad Reputation" onward wrote about each episode through "The Quarterback."  She missed half of the "Journey to Regionals" episode, so made a little two-paragraph note about it in a post.  Other than that, she wrote up at least "rough-and-ready" reaction posts, and usually essays.  So there are three seasons and a bit of her thoughts, and she's still doing "first thoughts" posts.

I've noticed that when writers switch from LiveJournal or WordPress to Tumblr, they generally mostly stop with LiveJournal and WordPress.  So far I haven't stopped with LiveJournal, even after having Tumblr for more than a year.  I find it more satisfying to write out my thoughts as fully as I care to, and have it more difficult to reblog.  Still, I like saving various people's thoughts from Tumblr.  I read Callie and Letters from Titan's episode reactions to each episode.  I read some of the others I see reblogged.
