little review

Poem for Friday

After Adam got me up to play Superpoke Pets with him since there are new items on Thursdays (this time it was the Atlantic seafloor, a chocolate shop, Japanese furniture, and I broke my prime rule and bought him one of the little hatching bluebirds that cost gold), I got stuff together to drive to New York in the afternoon. We picked up Adam from school early, stopped at Daniel's school to drop off the duffel bag he hadn't taken in the morning because he had nowhere to store it during the school day before the chorus got on the afternoon bus, then we drove through three states, ate dinner in a New Jersey Turnpike rest stop to save time and money, and arrived at the hotel around 8 p.m. Originally we were supposed to have a room on the 5th floor, but I asked the concierge how the view was, and she switched us to a fabulous room on the 20th floor. Here is the trip in brief:

Saw a bit of Smallville while getting organized in the hotel...I never felt properly sorry for Davis and now I loathe him, and the only line that really leaped out at me was from Tess, ""Betrayal...you know, the more you love someone, the harder it is," which I appreciated mostly because I'm pretty sure she was talking about Clark and Lex and any use of the L word there makes me happy, even in the past tense. The agenda for Friday is quite full -- Riverside Church for the choir festival early, then the Central Park Zoo unless it's pouring, then the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and we haven't even worked out restaurants!
