On Monday dementordelta and I had a movie day, though we started with a trip to the mall to pick up samosa chaat and involved an hour or so admiring summer accessories in The Icing and Claire's (yes of course we had to have royal frog rings). We had decided back when we saw Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy that we needed to watch The Tailor of Panama Again -- based on that and on the long interview on the TTSS Blu-Ray, we have come to the conclusion that John Le Carre thinks Americans, at least Americans in the armed forces and military, are complete morons -- then we watched The Banger Sisters because obviously it was meant to be a Geoffrey Rush day. Plus we had chocolate malteds.

apaulled decided that for Patriot's Day we needed to have Boston baked beans, Yankee pot roast (with fake meat of course), and Boston cream pie, so I had a big dinner to go with my big lunch and snack, heh. Younger son came home briefly to walk our neighbor's dog, then went back to school to work on tech for Legally Blonde through dinner, so I really didn't talk to him till evening, when we all watched Smash together -- I love Uma Thurman so I am sorry they are writing her as obnoxiously as pretty much everyone else on the show (ugh, remember how I called Dev "perfect boyfriend"? How did he turn into a neurotic mess in three weeks?). Here are five sides of the bat we saw at the National Arboretum on Sunday:
