get critical

Poem for Friday

Between the time when I got up in the morning to buy my Superpoke penguin Mount Rushmore, solve the Washington Post sudoku and read about how people are raising chickens in their backyards because it's the best way to get organic eggs and fertilizer, and the time when Jon Stewart declared his frustration about the firing of gay military translators because waterboarding may make a prisoner talk but it can't make him talk English, I did very little worth reporting -- read some Amy Tan, watched a Next Gen episode to review, did a survey on peer pressure with Adam for his health class in which I was asked for my most embarrassing memory of middle school...does one tell one's pre-teen son that it was getting one's period in the middle of English class and staining one's skirt so that he understands that it's difficult to be a girl, or does one omit those facts until he's older?

Oh, and I watched the Smallville season finale, which someone who 1) is smarter or 2) has been paying better attention will have to explain to me. (I know I was not paying proper attention this evening because dementordelta pointed out that a character had actually remarked upon the sexual tension between Clark and Oliver and I did not notice...oh fine, the character actually merely said "tension," but we all know what they meant.) However, it did confirm a couple of things that have been niggling at me.

I admit I watched the season recap, but that was because of "Carry On Wayward Son."
