hp100: Whitewash, for the challenge to pick someone else's plot summary and write a drabble based upon it. My summary was "All she wanted to do was prepare a nice meal for the man she loves," by HRHBunbury.

And from The Green Man Review, my review of Angels & Demons. Perhaps not as amusing as Bjo Trimble's scathing comments on Enterprise that I got to report for TrekToday yesterday, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Yesterday we did go down to the Civil War Days festival at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History, where we went to a wonderful slide show and lecture about 3D photography of the war and its key figures. We also walked through the exhibit on pueblos of New Mexico. Then we wandered next door to Natural History (see below) where one son wanted to see the Hope Diamond and the dinosaurs while the other wanted to see sea life and mammal bones. Afterwards we had ice cream and went to my parents' house for dinner. They have graciously agreed to babysit tonight since I have an early dentist appointment tomorrow morning and my mother is going to watch the boys, so I must think of something exciting to do tonight while child-free!
