little review

Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

From the new book Key Bridge because I was downtown today and was in the mood for a DC poem. I went with gblvr and dementordelta, where, after we had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, we met up with rubyrosered and gnomad to see Snow Cake, which has a great trailer that can be viewed here, though I might have gone anyway because it has Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver, plus Carrie-Anne Moss and (to the approval of the others though I hadn't known before I saw it) Callum Keith Rennie. It's one of Rickman's better roles -- a completely closed-off man who meets an autistic woman under really terrible circumstances and gets some perspective on his own tragedies. Weaver is terrific, less mannered than Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man, and really fearless about finding the humor in the role without making it laughable. Collapse )

Came home with gblvr attempting to stop me from navigating us off the map (I only got moderately lost, which is good for least there was no traffic). Did a quick skim of the news, can't wait for someone to bring Microsoft down now that they are taking on the free world, am pleased to see a Mexican sinkhole may help with a NASA Jupiter mission, watched Heroes which mostly rocked with the exception of my boredom with the Good Father/Bad Mother paradigm set up in full force last week and continued. Yeah, Nathan, I bet your father is your hero and he would be sooo proud of you. Collapse )

Weekend laundry still has not been folded. I know what I'm doing Tuesday apart from work.
