Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

I had a pretty quiet Friday. Hung out with my kids, organized Bar Mitzvah photos, fought with McAfee on my desktop for an absurdly long time, wrote a review of Next Gen's "Disaster". In the evening we watched Swing Vote, starring Kevin Costner as Homer Simpson, which was much, much better than I was expecting. I thought it would be about elections and the media, but it's really much more seriously about the working poor and Costner is so much more appealing as a drunken schmuck (in this as in The Upside of Anger) than he used to be playing the hero. Plus no one had told me Nana Visitor was in the movie, so I got the delightful surprise of her name in the credits followed by the delightful surprise of her slapping Dennis Hopper across the face!
