Poem for Thursday and Getting Cast Off

I spent most of Wednesday out with Paul, Adam, and Adam's friend Daniel Wigle, whom we took with us to pick up Adam in College Park, then brought them both to Minerva in Gaithersburg for the Indian buffet where we all ate a great deal. We stopped at Target to get Adam a calculator, since he's allowed to use a basic one during exams for arithmetic but not a graphing calculator or a phone program, and, since we had a bit of time, some of us tried on Halloween costumes. Then we took Adam to get his pins out and his cast off, and there was much rejoicing after a bit of wincing over the pins! And then he went back to school to play volleyball!

We spent the evening watching the season finales of Penguins: Spy in the Huddle and Legends, both of which were enjoyable (I hope the latter comes back next season -- I'm worried), but my major entertainment news involved staying up way too late the night before to watch Oscar and Lucinda, which I had never seen and could not understand how with such a cast it had such low ratings on both IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. I continued to be confused for the first two hours, during which it was a quirky but entertaining movie. Then came the murder and rape and attempted genocide and wrath of God, and I only wish I was kidding! I should have gone to bed!
