little review

Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

I was woken up absurdly early on Friday by two cats chasing each other back and forth and back and forth and back and forth across my bed. With me in it. Not that that even slowed them down. Since I was wide awake, I got up and did the Sudoku in The Washington Post and was then so proud of myself for having done one of the hard ones (they do easy games Mon-Tue, medium games Wed-Thu and difficult games Fri-Sat) that I went and looked up a bunch of Sudoku sites online to show off my newly discovered talent. I was all proud of myself for finishing one puzzle in 23 minutes, and then I saw that the average for that particular puzzle was 9 1/2 minutes. So much for my brilliant new career on the competitive Sudoku circuit.

This was still more thrilling than my other major activity for the day: putting the kids' bathroom back together and putting all the stuff we saved from the old cabinet under the sink into the new cabinet under the sink. (Open door, remove cat. Put bottle in, try to stop cat from knocking it over, remove cat, straighten all bottles. Shut door. Repeat.) I also wrote a review of "Loud as a Whisper", a Next Gen episode I really tried to like but it's just not well-written or well-played enough to deserve it. Squeed about Equus coming to Broadway -- dementordelta, you are coming as my date, yes? -- and snickered about Adrian Paul as Sir Francis Drake, with Temuera Morrison as Sandovate and a cheesy fantasy plot that sounds stolen from The Fountain.

Watched Flash Gordon because it was there...I fear that it probably sounds like I really like the show, and really, I don't know why it is that I remember to put that one on whereas I never remember when Ugly Betty is on even though I am sure the latter is a much better show. It's so mindless, it's painless -- there is nothing that can happen on Flash Gordon that can get me agitated, no matter how stupid or sexist it is, because I just don't take it seriously. And now I must admit that, as a total non-shipper, I really enjoyed tonight's SGA -- Collapse )
