little review

Poem for Sunday

Collapse )

My entire day, when not trying to recover from the Great CD Disaster of last night, was spent doing Halloween-y things at the Smithsonian Institution, so rather than blather about them, I shall explain in pictures. The first was the Día de los Muertos celebration at the National Museum of the American Indian downtown, and the second was the Air & Scare event at the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia.

On the way home, we stopped at Target to get bookcases to replace our defunct big CD holder (on the theory that CDs in cases weigh considerably less than their equivalent volume in books, we figure the shelves can surely hold them) and since we also had to get Halloween candy for Tuesday, ended up so hungry that we had to go out to Popeye's. So it has not been a low-calorie day but it was a very fun one. Also, I was led along the path to Hell by someone whose intentions are likely wicked. Whatever shall I give her for Halloween? My first choice is a bootleg DVD of The Search for John Gissing, but since several years of searching have failed to turn up even a copy I can watch, I may have to settle for a spanking chocolate pie.

Wow, it's late, but in half an hour it'll be earlier than now!
