Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

My tongue is no longer black! And my throat is somewhat better, knock wood, not perfect but not sharp pain every time I swallow. So although I didn't get a lot done today it must be considered a good day! The kids had a half day of school due to some interim thing or other and both had friends over so it was extremely loud and distracting -- four boys and three cats, one of whom is a kitten who likes to stand on keyboards and chase the cursor with her paw, could prevent anyone from getting anything done. I did write a review of The Next Generation's first season finale, "The Neutral Zone", without a lot nice to say about it, and I got the site columns up. And now there are rumors that Karl Urban will play the Romulan villain in Trek XI, which would be pretty cool.

Had dinner with my parents, then watched the Sci-Fi Channel trifecta. I'm not really crazy about the Doctor Who season finale episodes, which I had already seen -- the acting is fine and Saxon is a blast but the storyline is a chaotic mess and I'm not terribly comfortable either with the sexual politics nor the nature of the religious overtones. (My favorite thing is the idiot Republican US President!) Half-watched Flash Gordon which has little to recommend it besides being on after Doctor Who and we were too lazy to put on anything we'd actually need to concentrate upon -- best thing I can say about it is that I like the women, though if Dale went to Harvard she should at least be able to use grammar correctly -- and Stargate Atlantis, where, I will confess again, I tune way more into Elizabeth and Teyla than the boys everyone adores, and I love Keller but I'm still not falling in love with the show.

The Orioles have kept the Yankees from winning the division! Huzzah!
