green little review

Poem for Tuesday

I have nothing to report except that the magazines that had been piling up in the living room are now in boxes under my bed, less because I wanted to get rid of the piles than because I wanted to keep the cats out from under the bed. Of course, they only want to sleep there during the day; at night, they want to sleep on top of me, which does not make for the best night's sleep. I'm sorry, am I making no sense? I also got a teeny, tiny bit of stuff sorted and put away down the basement, not that you could tell because our basement looks like a bomb went off and then cats ran through the wreckage. And those were the exciting parts of my day so let's just leave it at that.

In honor of cidercupcakes' birthday this week, I showed my family the first three episodes of Arrested Development once older son got home from a very late engineering lab (the teacher bought the kids Chinese food and they didn't break till 7). Everyone loved it. The we put on the entertaining, close Tostito Bowl, having missed the first half when there was almost no scoring, though we did see the hilarious halftime marching band rendition of "Stairway To Heaven." Oh, it came to my attention yesterday that not everyone has read the Jason Isaacs interview, mostly about Good, at Ain't It Cool News! And I will confess that if the Telegraph's sources are right, I may be done with my brief love affair with Doctor Who...ah well, it was sweet while it lasted.
