get critical

Poem for Tuesday

I had a quiet Monday -- I had plans to have lunch with gblvr and David Tennant (well, he wasn't coming to lunch, unfortunately -- we were going to watch Casanova), but she was feeling terrible, so we postponed. Instead I futzed with photos for a while, read about the expected yet sad demise of Mars Phoenix (who could conceivably turn back on in the spring, but they don't expect that) and Eliot Spitzer not being charged (*snickering*), talked to my mother about the best places online to look up movie details and order used books. When he got home, Adam taught me some Chinese. *g* And several people linked me to this utterly awesome story about a penguin with a stuffed animal sibling.

Watched Sarah Connor, which was gimmicky, though it had wonderful Day of the Dead visuals and Latino music -- I'm already very tired of gunfights in slo-mo while music plays, and I'm already tired of the John rebels-Sarah is right-John feels terrible pattern, but it's not nearly as annoying as Heroes...can we please have the real Angela Petrelli back, the one from the first season?

Apparently Shirley is not interesting enough to keep consistent and intelligent as a character; she must be hurled aside in favor of David E. Kelley's preachifying the same way that Denny is, except that Denny's SUPPOSED to be crazy. Collapse )
