little review

Poem for Thursday and Montgomery County Fair

Collapse )

Paul worked from home this morning so that after lunch we could go to the county fair. We picked up Adam's girlfriend en route and dropped them off at the midway, since their plans primarily included going on things that flip, toss, whirl, twirl, and otherwise hurl people around, while ours included more sedate activities like pig racing and Andean music. The animals are my favorite aspect of the county fair -- in addition to the goats, sheep, cows, horses, rabbits, chickens, alpacas and other animals on display for judging, there are chicks hatching and calves being born in barns -- but we also went to the craft display, old time store, and decorated toilets.

We dropped Adam off at driver's ed on the way home, took his girlfriend home, and had dinner. I have been trying to decide which cloud service I want to use for my photos, which I have saved on DVDs and an external hard drive but I'd really like stored outside the house, so I fiddled for a while with Google Drive, Skydrive, and Dropbox (anyone have strong opinions on any of them? Amazon doesn't create sync folders and I want a service I am positive will be around in 10 years). We watched this week's Futurama, then a South Park rerun, then Comedy Central about which I will only say Brian Williams and Colbert gymnastics cheerleading FTW!
