Poem for Wednesday

Collapse )

wednesday100: "Up", for the first-time challenge.

beeej pointed me to The Fandom Escapist Election and made me realize that, even though they're both technically ineligible to be President of the United States -- and I'm not sure I'd want them for a whole host of political reasons; Stephen's apparent anti-abortion stance immediately makes me wary -- the ticket in my GIP (not to be confused with GOP) would still be better than what we've got. In fact just about anything, including immortals, vampires or talking animals, would be better, though I make an exception for certain fascist Disney cartoons. So:

Forgot to mention because it seemed less important that in addition to buying That DVD yesterday, I also bought The Silver Stallion ($10 new at Best Buy and you can't get it for much less used). So I get to have a very Russell week. Plus they had Don Juan DeMarco on the bargain rack for under $6...I'm not even supposed to try to resist that, am I?
little review

What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor?

...the title of a book of unexpurgated sea chanties which I found ridiculously cheaply on Amazon.com and ordered. Heh.

A day with no thrilling news to report. Had lunch with my mother at the mall, bought cookies for my kids and a $.99 DVD for my husband (Suncoast had Get Smart installments ridiculously cheap, but no extra M&C posters). Younger son had a friend over after school, older son had a baseball game 45 minutes away at suppertime to which apaulled came home from work early to take him so I had to make dinner early.

Enterprise was back after a long hiatus: "Damage" review written and posted on the early side, I was fairly clear on what I liked and did not like about this one and the specific moments at which Archer reminded me too damn much of George W. Bush though I restrained myself and did not cite them. This show is 1) better than fifth season Voyager and 2) still not within light-years of Deep Space Nine, but you know, UPN might take that as a compliment.

Happy belated birthday edgecity and meanarose; I just did not have it together to look yesterday! Sorry! Hope they were great days for both of you! The below gacked from bethos and rynne, and while my percentage count may be low, my main squeeze rocks:
