Poem for Friday

There were major thunderstorms several times on Thursday, but these did not prevent the major activities of my day. After getting up and buying my Superpoke penguin a library, golf course, and back yard with a swimming hole -- some days I really want to be my penguin -- I took the kids to have lunch at Cici's with gblvr and her children (who picked the restaurant -- please don't lecture me about nutrition and having Cici's twice in a week!). Then I took my kids to the pool in the afternoon once it was apparent that the lightning was gone for the time being. I had a brief visit from my parents to exchange CDs -- my father had one from a friend with Bar Mitzvah photos, I had music for them (it was their anniversary). And in the evening, we went to see Ocean Orchestra at Silver Spring Swings.

Sometimes PETA has a way of reminding me exactly why I loathe them even though I believe in pretty much everything they believe in, at least in theory. Then again I'm also pissed at Jon Stewart for giving Mike Huckabee a platform for insulting everyone of every faith that does not believe life begins at fertilization and does believe that women should have the right to make their own medical decisions, so rather than be cranky I will go to bed!
