little review

Poem for Sunday

Collapse )

After writing three articles in the morning, including one about How William Shatner Changed the World which is on the History Channel Sunday night and another on the new Five Year Mission extended edition of Free Enterprise because who can have too much Shatner, I spent a lovely sunny 70 degree afternoon at Huntley Meadows Park in Virginia, where we saw snakes, a huge variety of turtles, geese, ducks, fish, tadpoles and assorted other critters. And I don't even want to discuss how I spent my evening except to say that I am never, ever doing it again -- at least the insanity I complain about with relatives involves people I actually know and care about. But to end on a happy note, the rat-squirrel is not extinct!

This is just a small sampling of the turtles...okay, not a small sampling of turtles, but I didn't have time or energy to resize the giant snapping turtle or some of the other painted turtles. I have never had so many together in one photo before.

How did I not know that Russell Crowe was going to be on The Tonight Show on Friday? Waah, I'm slipping. Did he say anything besides the fact that he and Danielle are expecting another boy?

Sunday: Purim Carnival. Am not dressing up. Well, not as Queen Esther. Maybe as a wicked witch.
