little review

Poem for Tuesday

Am starting to be crazed with trip preparations, so will keep this short. Had lunch with gblvr, did a bit of shopping, picked up another power converter. Wrote brief articles on Mulgrew's rave reviews in Our Leading Lady and Shatner's fretting about appraching 80, though he is hopeful that if ABC gave Boston Legal a fourth season, they'll give it a fifth as well for the sake of syndication rights, and I am hopeful too. Installed ActiveSync 4.5, then had to fight to make my phone realize it was the same computer as before, and copied files onto my portable drive to bring along.

Folded laundry while watching The Mists of Avalon, which despite being 1) a terrible adaptation of the book, 2) heterosexist in comparison to the book, 3) filmed in the Czech Republic rather than Britain, 4) too long at the start, too condensed at the end, and 5) miscast in several key roles, it also has 1) Anjelica Huston, 2) Joan Allen, 3) Julianna Margulies, 4) Freddie Highmore, which I had forgotten all about, and 5) Loreena McKennitt. And, I mean, it's got the Lady of the Lake, Excalibur and all that, even if it's not any version of mine (or much of Marion Zimmer Bradley's) and the real Glastonbury is more beautiful than the fake one in the film. Speaking of Glastonbury, gacked from a whole bunch of people, the drawing analysis meme. Obviously I can't draw to save my life. This was supposed to be the Tor and the ruins of the abbey...

Kids have no school tomorrow so must go get rest. Happy Feet comes out on DVD, after all!
