Poem for Thursday and Folk Festival

Collapse )

gblvr needed to go to the Container Store, so we met for lunch at Lebanese Taverna next door and did a bit of fun shopping -- electric blue eyeshadow for me at Ulta to wear to con.txt's Disco Duck, Japanese penguin erasers for Adam, important things like that. (I had to get home before we made it to the Vera Bradley sale at Tiara, which is probably just as well, considering I'd managed not to buy anything that cost more than $5 except Heritage History of Transport by Water Playing Cards, which I obviously had to have the moment I became aware of their existence.)

Adam went camera shopping with my mother but failed to find a video camera that does everything he wants it to do, let alone at the price he's capable of affording. (Daniel has no school on Thursday, having no exams that day, so instead of studying for the Friday finals, he watched some Sonic thing.) In the evening we watched the History Channel's Clash of the Gods: "Zeus" episode, which apparently forgot the Enuma Elish was older than the Greek myths, then we watched that travesty of an Orioles-Yankees game (somehow we managed to forget that the Blackhawks might be winning the Stanley Cup until it was too late, quel dommage).
