Poem for Thursday, Garrett Park, Les Miz Premiere

It was not as warm on Wednesday as on Tuesday but it was still pretty gorgeous. Still, I spent more of the day on my butt in front of the computer, because Yahoo was livestreaming the Les Miserables premiere red carpet from Leicester Square so I spent a two-hour lunchtime very slowly eating a bagel while watching interviews with Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Hooper, and lots of other delightful people. I am totally psyched for this movie and will brook no complaints about how so-and-so could have sung the part better; I am quite content with the cast we're getting, and no one's going to make me Colm Wilkinson or Patti LuPone but they're several decades too old for their stage roles.

I had a coupon from the Silver Diner for a free dinner and dessert for my birthday, so since Adam had late tech rehearsal plus dinner at school, Paul and I went out to dinner (I had a feta cheese omelet with home fries and we split a brownie sundae). Afterwards we walked across the parking lot to World Market (where I resisted the fannish Pez dispensers and Christmas Cadbury, but not the peppermint cocoa mix) and Trader Joe's (because we are out of Mediterranean hummus). After retrieving Adam and driving his girlfriend home, we watched this week's Merlin, which was pretty hilariously great, and Nashville, which I like best when it's more music than fictional politics. Here are photos from Garrett Park last weekend, including the historic town hall and the train station:
