Poem for Tuesday

I had a lovely day with dementordelta despite rainy, chilly, generally icky weather. We went to Lebanese Taverna for lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon watching Slings & Arrows -- the Canadian series about the trials and tribulations of a Shakespeare festival that must be based in part on the Stratford Festival, though my experiences at Stratford have been that it's more sophisticated and less cliquish (at least from the audience) than anything at the "New Burbage Festival." I have never seen Due South, so I finally see what everyone sees in Paul Gross! We watched half of the first season and I can't wait to see the rest...I just discovered that Deep Discount DVD has the full series for under $30, hee.

In the late afternoon I took Adam to tennis -- there are only three kids in the class this session, so even though it's taught by the screaming Russian pro who he doesn't like as much as the mellow Chinese-American pro, he got lots of attention and lots of exercise. Then I had to attend to a whole bunch of Bar Mitzvah-related stuff (brace yourselves for hearing that phrase nearly every day for the next month and a half), and finally we watched Heroes, which was so over-the-top as to be utterly entertaining -- Collapse )

I am attempting to crosspost this from Dreamwidth to LiveJournal, InsaneJournal, DeadJournal, and JournalFen. For all my complaining about the hype for the Imminent Mass Migration of All True Fans, I must say that the people working on the site have been friendly, helpful, and far more realistic about their goals than a lot of the people I've seen posting about Dreamwidth, though I maintain the same concerns I've always had about a site that plans to remain invitation- or fee-only. (And no, I don't have any codes to give out -- sorry.) I am, at least, more excited at this moment about Dreamwidth than Twitter, where I have had to stop following several people because they did too much retweeting of celebrity comments I don't care about...and I'd think anyone who did would be following the celebrities!

ETA: EPIC FAIL: None of my cut tags conveyed and I almost spoiled Heroes for a lot of people! Back to Semagic tomorrow!
