Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

I had a bit of a hectic Friday the Thirteenth, though a pretty good one. I got up earlier than I meant to because I knew Paul was going to the post office and wanted to send some stuff with him, but he ended up leaving even earlier than I expected, so I had to stop at the post office in the mall myself when I took Adam for an orthodontist appointment after school. In between, I had lunch with gblvr at Lebanese Taverna and we wandered into our usual stops in the area, As Kindred Spirits and Ulta, where I tried on some kind of vanilla perfume that stuck with me all day and smells so good I might have to figure out what it was and get some if it's not expensive.

After the orthodontist, I came home to write a review of "First Contact", an episode lots of people seem to find underrated but I find overrated and was attempting to explain why without directly pointing out how sexist it is, just for a change. We didn't have dinner with my parents because my mother has a horrible cold (probably the same horrible cold that our kids have taken turns having), but my father stopped by with cupcakes that they had bought for Valentine's Day and we exchanged cards. Then we watched the new Fox Friday, which Fox is advertising as Hot Chicks Who Do Whatever You Want, so even though it's Summer Glau and Eliza Dushku, I'm not enthralled. Dollhouse was okay -- didn't hate it but didn't love it -- and Terminator had a terrific episode but I'm not sure I like where this is going. And then there was BS-Gee!Collapse )

Happy Valentine's Day -- my favorite e-cards are here.
