little review

Poem for Monday

Collapse )

Not a terribly thrilling Sunday...Adam had Hebrew school till noon and Daniel had robotics and a physics review session till 3 p.m., so we mostly did family-related stuff. Took Adam to Michaels to get a board for his science fair display, stopped at Petco to get cat litter and the food store to get bread, came home and urged both kids to study for midterms next week while watching the Chargers pull out a lovely victory over the Colts and the Giants defeat my least favorite NFL team, Dallas, so that was all good. Thing Two has requested that I post some corrections to my art museum quiz from yesterday. In Question 2, the one with the circle sculptures, one of the title options should be "Odysseus' Test for the Suitors" (because, Adam explained, they had to shoot arrows through a series of rings -- this is a really awesome title and I bet the artist wishes he had thought of that). In Question 3, one of the options for why people are in line should be "Waiting to buy a PS4 because it's warmer in the art gallery than outside Best Buy." Also a good answer.

We all watched The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which I enjoyed but it's way to soon to guess whether it'll be interesting for an entire series (two women hopelessly devoted to saving the guy who's the savior of the world), then watched PBS's broadcast of Persuasion, which we had watched last March while we were staying in a cottage not far from Bath -- lovely nostalgia and I wish I was there again! I glanced at the Golden Globes list long enough to ascertain that Johnny Depp and Glenn Close won while Jason Isaacs and William Shatner did not, have not significantly changed what I want to see based on the awards. The news seems to have little interest in covering Bush's trip to the Middle East when they can cover OMG BRITNEY instead, which may be just as well, really.
