little review

Poem for Thursday

Collapse )

I have nothing at all to report except that the fans are still blowing, the ceiling still has holes and the cats are still not happy. Thursday morning the guys from the company that set up the fans are coming to take them away and examine the drywall and wood to see how much more will have to be removed and replaced. Friday morning the insurance claims people are coming to look at their work and tell us exactly what is and is not covered. (They sent the company with the fans, so restoring the carpet padding and ceilings at least will be covered; whether the carpet itself will be covered and various paint damage is another question.) I was supposed to have lunch with my mother and friends, but that obviously will have to be postponed. Adam, at least, felt well enough for school.

I half-watched a lot of TV while trying to get various things done on the computer and in the living room which is piled high with boxes and furniture placed at odd angles to accommodate the fans and dehumidifiers. Pushing Daisies was terrific, better than last week I think, reminding me alternately of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and A Series of Unfortunate Events -- it has a very British feel, and I don't just mean because of the Jim Dale narration. Collapse ) Bionic Woman would be losing me entirely if Katee Sackhoff wasn't so mesmerizing, but she's not in every episode and Michelle Ryan doesn't have her intensity -- she either seems a little flat to me or like she's trying too hard, though she's generally appealing and I like her relationship with her sister. Of course, it might help if I had been paying more attention. I wasn't completely focused either on South Sydney Story, the first two episodes of the series about Russell Crowe and the South Sydney Rabbitohs -- which we get on Versus, a cable network I had never heard of before -- but I was entirely entertained anyway. All these players who look like NFL linebackers and Russell cheerleading his way through the purchase and early practices, getting the guys to say "I love you" to each other. Oh, Russell, you never fail to entertain me!

  • 20:39 Loving 'Pushing Daisies'! This show is so good! #
  • 23:47 Cramps. At least that means my hysteria of the past two days can be blamed on hormones rather than the house falling down. #
