little review

Poem for Saturday

I woke up feeling horribly sick -- my punishment for eating out twice on Thursday, probably -- so after the kids went to school I went back to bed and slept till nearly 10:30. Therefore I have very little of note to report. Wrote two articles on Trek XI rumors (officially to be called Star Trek, with no subtitles or numerals) and reviewed "The Last Outpost", picked up older son from early bus and drove him to a friend's house, cleaned out refrigerator after looking for yogurt and finding one all the way at the back with a December expiration date. That kind of excitement.

My good friend in London told me that she has procured tickets for us all to go see Spamalot together when we are there and suggested that we eat in Chinatown beforehand since it's right nearby. Does anyone have any suggestions for fairly quick inexpensive good restaurants there, particularly buffets if the London version of Chinese food is anything like the New York version? We've had Indian, Thai, Middle Eastern and Moroccan food in the UK but I don't think we've had Chinese. We also have to track down someplace near High Littleton to find Passover staples...perhaps we'll get those before leaving London, since I know they had them in the Tesco in Catford.

Had a quiet evening watching The Prisoner's "The Chimes of Big Ben" (which is one of the best episodes) and Torchwood's "Cyberwoman" (which I loved, which surprised me given some of the warnings I'd been given about it -- the acting is exceptional, it has interesting parallels to various other cybernetic female stories, and it's very revealing about all the main characters). apaulled said maybe we can hire these Mayan priests to purify Washington after Bush is gone! Someone's going to have to get rid of the stench (and it's pretty obvious it won't be a grand jury, if Cheney hasn't been indicted by now).

Oh, Maryland, my Maryland...what the hell happened? And how sad about Boston's Brad Delp. Don't look back.
