little review

Poem for Friday

This county confuses me so much. They often close school the night before a storm based merely on a forecast of snow, but today, with an inch and a half on the ground and more falling fast, they opted to stay open the full day. My unplowed neighborhood became more and more non-navigable, so that by the time older son's bus reached the first nearby stop, I didn't want to drive through the snow to pick him up, and made him get his shoes wet walking home. Also, I am sure people with multiple cats know this already, but any good snow day is spent in large part moving cats off heating vents, which when you have three cats requires a lot of circuits and cat-booting. And naturally there has been no decision made about Friday morning delays yet.

I had lots of laundry to fold, so I put on The Da Vinci Code on an impulse and younger son watched with me. Still not a great movie but I can half-watch the scenes at Temple Church, Westminster Abbey, Docklands, etc. and be very happy. We had Polish turkey sausage for dinner, Paul having concluded that we needed something spicy to counter the cold, then watched Star Trek's "Q Who" together because I need to review it...early Borg are always awesome, before Voyager ground them into the ground. And then younger son found Black Beauty on Animal Planet and left it on because of horsies, so I got to see David Thewlis and Eleanor Bron (it was already past the Sean Bean part).
