little review

Poem for Tuesday

My kids had no school so teachers could wrap up first semester stuff, and since there was a dusting of snow on the ground when we woke up and fits of flurries during the morning, we stuck close to home. So I have nothing of interest to report except that Daniel is mostly over his cold, finally. We watched The Other Boleyn Girl because I was recording it for my uncle, then I took Adam to tennis (where he was displeased at the emphasis in the higher level on learning to serve, which he thinks is boring). By the time we got home, it was nearly dinnertime.

In the evening we started watching the third season of Arrested Development -- only ten episodes left, woe! And there was Charlize Theron as a British agent/possible love interest for Michael, and Harry Hamlin in a gratuitous cameo as a lawyer, and Scott Baio in a recurring role as Bob Loblaw (say it aloud, we were all howling), and Tobias getting business cards printed up naming his dual roles as analyst and therapist and not understanding why people get upset when he comes up with "analrapist" as his title. And the Church and State Fair where the Rabbis beat the firemen! I am going to miss this show so much, even though it was canceled years ago.
