little review

Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

I'm ready to disown my sinuses...really, the whole front of my skull. It is not fair that coughing triggers migraines. The one is bad enough without the other. I got up at 7:30 when younger son was leaving for school but then went back to sleep after husband left for work and slept till nearly 11, and I still had to take a nap at 6 because I couldn't keep my head up. The only thing I accomplished all day was getting the laundry folded (while watching Jesus Christ Superstar, because younger son was talking about having talked about crucifixion in social studies, which I suppose is a really perverse free-association but I love that movie beyond reason and always watch it between Candlemas and Easter anyway).

Watched Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which probably wasn't helped by my headache and my mood, but I'm really not much liking the show. Two such kick-ass women and it's like retro all-about-the-boy sci-fi, where one of the women is even a robot so she doesn't have a personality to count! Collapse ) I'm really not in the mood for it, just as I'm not in the mood for so-called feminists telling me why gratuitous Hillary-bashing is actually really good for women. Vote for Barack if you love his platform -- not if you're kidding yourself about all the ways in which women's voices are silenced, every day, by people who claim to be speaking for women's interests. And have a lovely Super Tuesday and Mardi Gras.
