little review

Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

Daniel slept till noon and woke with his throat still sore and a slight fever, so we spent my kids' day off stuck at home. For some reason the kids wanted to watch Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (I think they had seen Goldmember someplace and knew we had the other on VHS), so we watched that, and a bit later -- since it was raining and I couldn't make Adam play outside for long -- they wanted to put on one of the Pokemon movies, so I had the full spectrum of pre-adolescent boy entertainment. In other entertainment news, Paul e-mailed me the very important legal decision that the founder of Procul Harum has won back the rights to "A Whiter Shade of Pale" since the judge ruled that, although Matthew Fisher should be credited with co-authorship of the song because he contributed the organ music, it took him so long to sue that he has no right to financial benefits. Now I am waiting for the song's other co-writer, Johann Sebastian Bach, to sue as well.

Watched New Amsterdam, continued to find it disappointing in terms of what it could be but reasonably entertaining for what it is; Collapse ) Then watched the NCAA basketball tournament, rooting for Kansas because they knocked out North Carolina, though I didn't really care who won since Duke, UConn, etc. were already out of contention and no one I really like made the Final Four. And the game is still going in overtime! I'm rooting for Stanford to win the women's tournament because they knocked Maryland out, so they must deserve to win. *g* Daniel will not be going to school tomorrow so I will have another day in the house, woe! Send entertainment!
