little review

Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

Had a pretty quiet but satisfying day; wrote a review of "The Gamesters of Triskelion" which I like better than I probably should, had dinner with my parents and brought over "Trials and Tribbleations" that we all watched on their plasma TV where it looked fabulous...much better than the DVD of "The Trouble With Tribbles" looked on my TV, where the old footage hadn't been cleaned up to nearly the same degree. (My mother made my very favorite comfort food, chicken slop -- shredded chicken in cream of chicken soup -- over puff pastries, for dinner with the chicken boiled for the chicken soup we will be having Wednesday for Passover. Yum.) And now we are watching Forbidden Planet (which turns 50 this year) on TCM, and it's so obvious how much Gene Roddenberry borrowed from it, even if the robot ended up on Lost In Space, so it was a very Trekkie sort of Friday!

In other fannish news, I got an E on my W.O.M.B.A.T. (which is really very heartening considering I rushed through the test and was not sure I'd manage a passing grade; next time I must study harder, heh), and we all watched Doctor Who which is love!!! (And my current het OTP, though I've been warned that that will likely not last till the end of the series, which is also fine. *g*) Collapse ) Like everyone else, I talked to God for awhile but there were a lot of glitches and not much omniscience. We had rain in the morning, a sunny and warm afternoon (low 70s), then it poured just before we left to go to my parents' for dinner and this was the view down the street on the way out the door:

Saturday morning apaulled has to be home for a software release from his company in case of crisis, then after that, depending on the weather, we might go to the Sakura Matsuri Street Festival downtown or we might go to an indoor nature center. The kids are on spring break for a week, so I have to juggle all sorts of stuff and might not be around much!
