little review

Poem for Thursday

It has not been a terrific day, but many people I know are having much worse days and weeks so I will keep this short. Ran out to the mall to do chores, told my mother I'd meet her for lunch...I needed to get something at the Container Store and she was already on Rockville Pike, so we went to the noodle place in Congressional where I had the very good Japanese noodles and chicken. Came home, took younger son to violin, tested him on the material that will be on his science re-test tomorrow, wrote an article on the Oregon congressman who compared the Bush Administration to Klingons and another on Damon Lindelof, who said absolutely nothing about Star Trek XI but apparently now even a producer saying nothing counts as news for Trekkies. Feel like I was running around most of the day but accomplished very little.

Winter has finally arrived and it is below 30 degrees, though it was in the 40s while I was out this afternoon. I guess we are going to lose the daffodils coming up in the front yard. The combination of the cold, the end of my period and the kind of evening I had makes me crave chocolate. I should make diet resolutions in March when the sun is coming back, I'd keep them so much better. At least the Senate is bucking Bush and Hawking has everyone listening for the moment to the threat of global warming. I want to feel optimistic about things.

Does anyone have suggestions for a really great but not outrageously expensive camera bag to travel with? Something big enough for an extra lens, filters, battery, SD card and my cell phone, but not huge.
