Poem for Thursday, Sherlocks, Wild Zoo

Not a lot to report from my Wednesday -- beautiful weather, deer in the woods near the house, review of "The Practical Joker" for Friday 3/4 finished because I'm expecting company the next two days and have Adam's back to school night on Thursday night. I exchanged text messages with Daniel about bank accounts and book-buying and e-mail with Adam's guidance counselor and the high school art teacher because he is hoping to switch into a painting class, having enjoyed the one he took this summer at Glen Echo...there is now one space in the morning class, but he would have to switch which period he has Chinese and he has a friend in his current Chinese class so I think he is conflicted.

Daniel's building has had no cable since the hurricane went through and took down many of College Park's power lines, so we have been collecting DVDs for him. Tonight we ended up watching Sherlock Holmes which was one he said he wanted (we guessed that Inception and Avatar might be as well)...I want to know why a Victorian era Sherlock Holmes film has female characters who are so much more compelling than the ones on the modern-era Sherlock (yet it's still just as delightfully slashy). Here are some more zoo photos from last weekend:
