little review

Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

Had a quiet Friday, did some reading, tore the house apart looking for a stupid thing I couldn't find and still haven't found and don't really need that badly but now it's a matter of principle that I find it, wrote a pretty scathing review of "Turnabout Intruder" with reference to not-quite-redeeming slashiness (when the misogyny is that pronounced, no amount of slashiness helps). Entertained myself with the widespread coverage of my boyfriend Russell Crowe getting rid of the cheerleaders for the rugby team he co-owns, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, because the scantily clad cheerleading squad "makes women uncomfortable and it makes blokes who take their son to the football also uncomfortable" and he wants to return the focus to the sport itself. Oh, Russell, no matter how many punches or telephones you throw, I cannot resist you.

Tried calling perkypaduan three times to find out where she was, but didn't manage to get ahold of her -- hopefully her surgery went well. Thought my new bluetooth headset wasn't working right, then realized I had failed to read the manual on how to get it out of standby mode -- my bad -- though it meant I ended up behind when picking older son up from the bus and dropping him at a friend's house. We all had dinner with my parents who gave us Valentine's Day candy early because they are going to Florida next week, came home and watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on cable, then Torchwood's "Day One" which has none of the subtle, incisive writing of Doctor Who but has a wonderful cast and can't help being sexy -- give me a female character I adore and it just makes everything so much better (thank you so much, again, melinafandom!) Now have The Player on some Starz channel because in addition to being snarky, sarcastic and well-filmed, just about every actress I love who was known in the late 1980s is in it (Louise Fletcher, Anjelica Huston, Susan Sarandon, Cher, Lily Tomlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Dina Merrill, et al).
