Poem for Friday, Baltimore Poinsettias, Tinker Tailor

I had an absolutely lovely Thursday with dementordelta, marred only because she had a horrible drive home and knowing that she had a sucky evening makes me sad. We went to downtown Bethesda, went to Baja Fresh for cheese quesadillas for lunch, then went to the movies to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. We were sitting in the theater for nearly half an hour when we learned that there had been a leak and the 1 p.m. show had been canceled, so we went to Barnes & Noble for a while, put more money in the parking meter, and went to the 2:30 show for free. I still adore the film, even more so perhaps now that I'm 3/4 through the novel and notice things I might not have had I not started to read it.

Since we were in the mood for more Colin Firth and Mark Strong, we then came back to my house and had chocolate cake that she had brought and watched Fever Pitch (she hadn't seen it and it's not like it was a hardship for me to watch it again). She also brought me a King's Speech tissue box for Chanukah. *g* After she left, apaulled made pancakes and fake bacon for solstice dinner and Daniel requested Deep Space Nine, which I very happily watched with him -- the pilot and "In the Hands of the Prophets" which are necessary for understanding all the arc episodes of later seasons. Tomorrow hopefully I can show him "Past Prologue" and "Necessarily Evil"! Poinsettias from the Baltimore Conservatory:
