little review

Poem for Wednesday

Collapse )

There are no fans in my house! And, Tuesday at least, no repairmen! So I went out to lunch with vertigo66, went to Target for thrilling things like deodorant, a new towel to replace Daniel's that somehow landed in a puddle of bleach, and a replacement pillow. Then came home, drove Adam to Hebrew school and folded all the laundry that didn't get folded last week when I was folding every towel, washcloth and rag in the house after the flood. I was recording Ken Russell's Gothic during the laundry, which I haven't seen in more than a decade, and forgot how much I enjoy it despite its flaws as a film -- Natasha Richardson, Julian Sands, Gabriel Byrne and Timothy Spall as Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and John Polidori -- the genesis of Frankenstein, Prometheus Unbound, Don Juan and The Vampyre all in a single night.

Caught up on articles on the two Spocks -- Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy -- for TrekToday. Semi-caught up on correspondence (though don't write me a cranky note if I still owe you one, please). Went over laptop stuff with apaulled and tennis lessons stuff with Adam and my father who wants to play tennis with him. Played with poor deprived cats who were not allowed to suffocate themselves in the Target bags but had them taken away. And watched Boston Legal, which started with some marvelous Bush-bashing and ended with some more unrealistic decisions of the sort that we would get if only judges in the real world were written by David E. Kelley, but sadly, they are not. And the ending was shattering...I'm still trying to figure out how to calm down about it. Collapse )
