Poem for Saturday, 'Homeward,' Halloween Preparations

Collapse )

My day mostly involved trying to finish a review of Star Trek: The Next Generation's "Homeward", which was more enjoyable to watch than I had remembered but just as infuriating to think about, interrupted by a lengthy battle with CVS to get my migraine medicine refilled. The only good news was that I didn't actually have a migraine, but I had realized that I was down to one pill from an expired package three days ago, so I called in a refill, was told as expected that they would have to contact my doctor's office, set a pickup time 48 hours later, called to check on the prescription status, and set off to get the prescription, safe in the knowledge that it was ready and waiting. Except, wrong: Collapse )

Grr. Otherwise, it was a nice afternoon -- I saw two deer and many chipmunks while walking in the woods, I had a nice discussion with Adam about various issues in photography, I had peanut butter and nutella for lunch as consolation for being kept waiting at CVS for more than an hour, I had yummy faux-chicken with Cumberland sauce dinner with my parents (we weren't sure that was going to happen because my sister and her family are coming into town, but they decided not to arrive till late, so my parents didn't have to get them at the airport at dinnertime as they initially thought), and I watched Smallville, in which we got to see lots of Oliver with his shirt off and Lois in fetish gear. Lois in fetish gear is so hot that I could almost forgive the show for its "S&M is inherently evil" storyline -- Collapse ) Is the actress who plays Kara still on V? There's a show whose reboot doesn't bother me at all since I don't pay enough attention, but on the other hand...

Here are some photos of neighborhood Halloween decorations I took while walking around the nearby cul-de-sac.
