Poem for Sunday

Collapse )

thefridayfive (It's Sunday...really?):
1. who was your favorite band/musican when you were younger? Paul Simon.
2. why? Duh, because he rocks.
3. are they still your favorite/one of your favorites? Yes.
4. what is your favorite of their songs? If I have to choose one, it's "A Poem on the Underground Wall".
5. are there any specific lyrics you hold dear? Collapse )

If this (pointed out to me by ashinae) is true, I will happily pay for the ROTK EE and not utter any more complaints. God I'm easy; give me Boromir and I shut up.

It's raining, and I think we are going to the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore. Maybe I will be able to see ships on the harbor in the mist. (Some comments are in this locked entry.)

Science Museum With A View

Collapse )

After the Maryland Science Center we walked to Harborplace to browse, but left fairly soon as it started drizzling and was getting crowded with post-Orioles dinner crowds. The only drawback to the afternoon was horrible traffic on the Beltway going past the Mormon Temple, which we wrongly assumed at first might be baseball crowds headed all the way to Baltimore (as it turned out, the traffic even right past the stadium wasn't bad). When we went around one of the S-curves, we could see fire trucks, EMTs, road crews, police and a crane blocking two lanes next to a shattered barrier. Later we learned that a tractor trailer carrying mail had slid off the road and hit the barrier, jackknifing and hitting two cars. The lanes had been closed since before sunrise. I'm glad no one was seriously hurt, based on how bad the accident looked, but a little worried about packages I'm expecting, as the mail was apparently totaled as badly as the mail truck.
