Poem for Saturday, Albatross, Miracle Day, Renfaire Sun

On Friday I had to run out to a store in the morning, while it was still raining. But after lunch, I looked out the window and saw a strangely familiar yellow orb in the sky. Believing that I must need my Vitamin D replenished, I went for a long walk and watched the deer and chipmunks race through the wet grass. I do not actually care what I do this weekend (maybe Boonsboro Days, maybe Kings Dominion, depending on other family members' demands) if I can be outdoors with the sun shining. My weather app has ominous thunderstorms predicted. It was so nice to have an afternoon without rain.

I posted a review of the animated Star Trek's moderately enjoyable "Albatross" and boggled at the news that Russell Crowe is going to play Javert in Tom Hooper's film of the musical version of Les Miserables, which could either be awesome or a total disaster; Hugh Jackman is signed to play Jean Valjean and supposedly Anne Hathaway is about to ink the contract to play Fantine, though my favorite rumor is that Hooper wants Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier. We had dinner with my parents, then come home for the season finale of Torchwood, which was quite satisfying and did several things that made me extremely happy, against all my expectations.
