Wednesday so far

I tried to go to sleep at 1:30 a.m. or so, but that didn't happen.  I got up at 2-something and read until 4-something.  I woke at 11:15 a.m.  It could have been worse.  It could have been a lot better, especially since I lay down again at 11:30 a.m.  I didn't go back to sleep, though.  I got up for the day around noon.

I am writing down the Bechdel test for my reference.

1.) If the film has two named female characters

2.) Who talk to each other

3.) About something other than a man

It passes the Bechdel test.

My thoughts: Glee passed the Bechdel test in most episodes.  "The Musketeers" has passed it in a couple of episodes, though if the female characters weren't talking about a man, they were talking about babies, in a number of cases.  The Avengers have the Black Widow, but mostly men talking to men and sometimes men talking with women.

Rainjoy put up a new chapter of the Affinity!Verse.  She put in a link to a philosophical problem.  I read that after I read the chapter.  I would have felt that the chapter was very artificial if I had read that first.  However, it did seem to explain some things about past!Aramis and Affinity!Verse Aramis.

I texted a "Happy Birthday" to J.  I called him later to verbally wish him a happy birthday.

I walked around the yard.  The American cranberry bush viburnum is in full bloom.  The dill, rosemary, and pineapple sage in the herb garden were still alive.  I watered them and the sweet flag.

I did a rare review of a book on Goodreads.  I reviewed LGBT Youth Issues Today: A Reference Handbook by David E. Newton.  I recommended it to Uly and OctoberCountry.

Later: I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD and J.-PA.
