little review

Quick Drunken Update

We decided to finish the irish cream we bought for New Year's Eve. And, since the Tostito Bowl, that is the Dorito Bowl, that is the Fiesta Bowl was on, we had to have Tostitos and cheese, and chocolate chip cookies too.

This after taking the kids out for Indian buffet for lunch because they wanted to, picking up my husband from work since it's right near his office. After lunch they made me take them to the mall so they could spend their Borders gift cards on Spongebob DVDs and Yu-Gi-Oh cards, because they know that I will buy them books. (I was very restrained and did not buy TOFOG's Other Ways of Speaking. Then I came home and ordered it off half.com for $5. I suck.)

Here's The New York Times annual movie round-up, to which I direct you not only because M&C finished at the top of critic A.O. Scott's list, but because there are slide shows and other goodies. Lots of ROTK stuff too.

And ashinae wants me to post this, from the January 4th, 2002 Entertainment Weekly interview with Russell Crowe, in the same issue as the not-so-geeky guide to Lord of the Rings: Collapse ) And I am very, very full and sleepy, so goodnight.

Poem for Saturday and <a href

Collapse )

Belated Friday Five:
What one thing are you most looking forward to...
1. ...today?

Having time to read.
2. ...over the next week?
Kids back in school, giving me time to try to get my own life in order.
3. ...this year?
Traveling. Still not entirely sure where, yet (American South, Stratford, ONT and various other North American places potentially on agenda).
4. ...over the next five years?
Still traveling. Going to Europe and the South Pacific.
5. ...for the rest of your life?
ONE thing? My fiftieth wedding annivesary, with my grandchildren in attendance.

Gacked from communicator, who was Emma Goldman and I am jealous! Was Mary Wollstonecraft, or her daughter Mary Shelley, a possibility? That's more me, because I am not depressed enough (and like sex too much) to be:

Virginia Woolf
You are Virginia Woolf! You were openly bisexual
and had public affairs, but you never liked
sex. You wrote a seminal feminist work, long
before feminists knew that they were feminists.
In this vein, you never really considered
yourself a feminist. You were a tragic figure,
but a damn genius.
Which Western feminist icon are you?

Incidentally, if I change the answer about whose sex life mine is most like (none of them are perfect descriptors anyway), I am Angela Davis, which rocks.
