(Rafael Solano to Jane Villanueva on "Jane the Virgin")
(1/11) I'm back on Blogger. I can't figure Word Press out. I just want to be able to type something and see it on the screen and Word Press requires watching a video, unless I go back to my old librarian blog, which isn't Sarah Louise but my real name.
I didn't know how it would happen but I'm somehow weaned off Jane. Okay, SL, unpack that sentence for us? Gladly. Since the pandemic started, I've been using my Kindle to watch Jane the Virgin. Somewhere in there I started using Jane as a sleep aid. I'd just put "her" on and fall asleep to whatever episode I was on. The past two nights I've taken my Kindle to bed with me but haven't turned it on. Yesterday I turned it on at 4 am so that I could get some more sleep. I will continue to bring my Kindle to bed with me, but I might have turned a corner!! How exciting.
The quote that this post is named after is my favorite quote from Jane. Rafael tells Jane to be brave as she tells him she wants to be a writer, something she's never said out loud before.
I need coffee or something. I'm still half asleep. I'll do my devotions and come back to this. Maybe have my coffee.
Update on 1/18: No, not weaned. It was two nights. OH WELL. We'll get there. I'll try again at Lent.
So--my dating life. I've encountered not one but two catfish, and only lost time, not money, to the first one. The second one didn't seem like a catfish, but seemed odd. I was let know by Match that he was "engaging in fraudulent behavior" yesterday and I swear, I had forgotten him so well that I only remembered him this morning as I was going over my porcelain dolls with my fingers, imagining what it might be to be blind. Yes, my latest Match is blind. So that's a new one. He seems very smart, and very sweet. He takes forever to respond, generally, but when he does, he outdoes any catfish in volume, though he is very much a real person, I googled him. And, unlike a catfish, who feeds you lines, this guy is real, more real than any guy I've encountered. We'll see. I'm intrigued.
My coffee is brewing. Oh, it's ready!
