Monday so far

I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for some time Sunday night, and got off the computer at around 11:10.  I sat up until 12:30 or so, reading Starling and sorting out the e-clutter on my e-readers engendered by putting so many romances and so much fan fiction on them.  I think I fell asleep fairly quickly.  I woke at 8:30 a.m., and that was way too early.  I did some of my morning routine, and then went back to bed until 10:30 a.m.

I chatted with Riah for a while.  I went to the Y and walked on the treadmill a little, reading Starling.  About another fortnight of days walking on the treadmill, and I'll have finished the book.  I'll likely read it in the evening, too.  I stopped at a grocery store.  When I got home, I chatted with Riah some more.

Later: I cleaned up the Word document I have of Callie's LJ episode reactions to Glee.  It's 434 pages.  I sent a copy to her.  Presumably she already has it all together in one place, but if she doesn't, I thought it would be cool to see it all.  I started saving them probably sometime in season three, went back for the earlier ones, and printed it all out probably at the end of season four.  I then added the entries on the first three episodes of season five.

Callie might be contrary, but she's remarkably consistent in loathing Rachel, from the first.  I wouldn't say she influenced me as much as she put it into words for me.  She loves Kurt.  She seems very disenchanted with Blaine lately.  Blaine has his faults, but his character is totally consistent with the psychological stage two in Alan Downs' book The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man's World.  Glee has enough gay characters to tell different gay men's stories.  Blaine's is a Velvet Rage story.

I e-mailed WhiteSheepCBD to tell her we should celebrate the Affinity!Verse being a year old.  It's almost 1,000 pages, and still no d'Artagnan.  His name was mentioned in a dream 850+ pages in, but Aramis forgot about it as soon as he woke up.  Not that I'm counting or anything.  Much of it has been "batshit AU" pre-canon, with some really diagonal references to events that happened in the first five episodes of "The Musketeers."  I don't know if Rainjoy will even go up to Agnes or Ninon in her "girls' circle."  Which leaves Anne and Anne.

Edited to add: On second thought, teen!Aramis talks about "the widow," so the Affinity!Verse has mentions of characters that come after the first five episodes of "The Musketeers."
