green little review

Poem for Thursday and Brookside Snapper

It is going to be One Of Those Weeks, so feel free to filter me off for a few days. Two people defriended me on LiveJournal on Thursday, and while we haven't been in the same fandoms for years, I couldn't help wondering whether my complaining was the last straw. Everyone in my family (parents, kids, cousins, etc.) is very stressed out and it is not conducive to happy talk.

The good news is that I had a doctor's appointment this morning and in spite of the week I am having, my blood pressure was down substantially, so I guess those ACE inhibitors really work! She has to check my potassium but said that if I have no side effects so far, I'm probably going to do well on it, so that's good news. That, a stop at CVS, and a walk were my major outings for the day.

We watched this week's The Borgias but I couldn't pass a quiz on what happened apart from Lucrezia being generally awesome (she'd make a better Pope than her father, despite some obvious problems getting the job), then Wild Australia on Planet Green. I don't even remember what else happened today apart from the Orioles beating the Yankees, so here are some photos of a baby snapping turtle at Brookside:
