little review

Poem for Wednesday

I did chores in the morning -- still working on Bar Mitzvah souvenirs and stuff. Then I had a very nice afternoon -- lunch at Tara Thai with vertigo66, then what was supposed to be a quick stop at Target to return a shirt but ended up involving trying on spring clothes (which I did not buy), looking at sofa slipcovers (which were on sale, but I want to compare at a couple of other places first), and deciding that in honor of Barbie's 50th birthday and our trip last summer, I should buy SeaWorld Barbie (which was also on sale for under $10, less than the shirt I was returning, meaning it was obviously meant to come home with me).

After the kids got home, I had to finish folding laundry, which I did while watching Xena's "The Way", which like every other episode of Xena I reviewed seems so very much better on reviewing. I loved the series the first time through, but it was on at the same time as Deep Space Nine and early Voyager and The X-Files and La Femme Nikita and Relic Hunter, when there was no dearth of fantastic female genre characters and I could never have imagined I'd be putting up with Heroes and Battlestar Galactica because that's what would be available.

I don't have a Tuesday night show, so we watched How the Earth Was Made on the History Channel about New York being built on what's left over from the last ice age, followed by The Universe which was about stopping Armageddon (conclusion: Bruce Willis and Robert Duvall both did it wrong, space shuttles are a bad idea and nuclear bombs even worse, we need a big laser deflector array). Now I'm watching Jon Stewart rip apart Jim Cramer, again, which is one of many examples of why The Daily Show is so much better than the eleven o'clock news!
