little review

Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

Relatively uneventful day. Wrote up Connor Trinneer's Q&A from TrekTrak at last month's DragonCon, discovered that he has a great sense of humor, is very smart and will slash Archer/Tucker with aplomb, all of which makes me happy. Also, he hated the Mirror episodes as much as I did! And I got so much hate mail for not thinking they were the greatest thing since Jeri Ryan in a catsuit. Heh. I thought I might miss Enterprise once it was gone, but I will tell the truth: rewatching the original series is much more gratifying on nearly every level. Whichever rerun I review on any given week is frequently my favorite television hour for that week. Of course I may be singing a different tune when it's "And the Children Shall Lead," but for now I am just loving it.

I got a phone call from older son's school nurse just before school ended for the day telling me that he had a bad stomachache. He wanted me to come pick him up at school, but given the beltway traffic it would have taken longer for him to get home that way than if he just took the bus, so I persuaded him to do that and picked him up at the first bus stop rather than making him ride the extra half hour to the one nearest our house. He was sort of droopy when he got home but revived after he finished his social studies homework, ate dinner and felt well enough to go to fencing in the evening.

The trees by my son's bus stop are showing distinct signs of it being autumn.

Younger son had Mad Science after school so he got home slightly later, sat down and did his homework with the utmost devotion because Adventure Quest has some Halloween special this week online and I had told him that he could play after all his work was done. He has an all-day field trip to Historic St. Mary's tomorrow, leaving school at 6:45 a.m. and getting back at 5 p.m., so he will be pretty fried! No baseball tonight but there is Monday Night Football which I have been haphazardly watching while reading The Washington Post Magazine from the weekend and organizing some stuff. I am watching Commander in Chief tomorrow no matter who is winning at 9 p.m. *g*
