little review

Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

My major activity for Friday, besides going to see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End with gblvr, then going to Tara Thai with her afterward, was writing a review of "Datalore", one of several Next Generation episodes that has held up surprisingly well (though next week's episode is "Angel One" and I reserve the right to be utterly scathing). As I said, I adored the movie and can't wait to see it again. Kids are angling for this weekend, so even though we are visiting my in-laws, hopefully that will be soon rather than later!

Had dinner with my parents, who were not in the best of moods; father is not happy about his birthday on Monday, on which he will be a year younger than his mother was when she died (next year, when he turns the big number ending in a zero, I expect he will be unhappy for at least a month). We are trying to figure out something to do on his birthday and he was not thrilled with any of the suggestions, then griped at my mother when she lobbied for one just to have something to do. Am drinking kosher dessert wine to chill out. fannish5 seems to be on hiatus this week...
