I tried to go to sleep around 1:45 a.m., and couldn't sleep.  I tried again around 2:15 a.m., and that time I got to sleep.  I woke a little before 10:00 a.m., feeling a little tired still.  I lay down again, but didn't go back to sleep.  I officially got up for the day around 10:00 a.m.

I wished J. a happy birthday.

Slightly later: I read various things on the Internet.  Axe had said on the latest Lima Heights Adjacent recap podcast that she felt bad for disliking Artie because he's disabled.  Ficdirectory said that people in wheelchairs can be huge jerks.  I already knew that.  She said that wheelchair users could also be nice, that they were complex human beings who could be nice or be jerks.  I said I was glad someone said something.  I said that there were numerous examples of Artie being sexist, that he was casually homophobic towards Kurt, and that he, along with most of the other characters, was condescending towards people with intellectual disabilities.  I am condescending towards people with intellectual disabilities, too, so I'm no better.  But I said that people shouldn't feel guilty about acknowledging Artie's prejudices because he's disabled.  Artie is something of a racist, too, or at least notably anti-Black.  Biyuti says the default for white people is to be racist.

I can understand that there are reasons not to like Artie.  Sexism is the prejudice that affects me personally, but I am aware of the other prejudices Artie has.  I'll see if Axe sees my post.

"The Untitled Rachel Berry Project" is on tonight.  The sixth season is supposed to start in January.  If they have cliffhangers, it's going to be a long time until they get resolved.

Early afternoon: It rained for a bit.  I put out the little plants I'd gotten from Logee's.  I'd had them on the porch.  I went out again after it rained.  The orris is starting to bloom.  I should take a picture before it's eaten.  There's a dwarf iris blooming in the herb garden.  I'm not sure if it's an iris cristata.  I'll have to see if I can find a label.  The Rober's lemon rose geranium I got is blooming.
