Poem for Thursday and Washingtonian Goslings

Collapse )

I have eaten a ridiculous amount in the past two weeks, but I ate a truly ridiculous amount on Wednesday. I had lunch with Kay at Tara Thai -- I had not seen her in more than a month, since before my family went to France and her son decided where he's going to college -- then I went out to dinner at The Melting Pot with Paul to use a Living Social deal before it expired in two days. I forgot that their California salad is the best salad in the world and that there is no substitute for chocolate fondue.

Obviously that was most of the excitement from my day, though did a bit of shopping, walked around Washingtonian Lake, and saw a family of goslings relaxing near the boat launch, which was also being guarded by geese and ducks. We finally caught up on last week's Elementary (no thanks to Verizon whose HD version wasn't working) and saw this week's Nashville (enough with the contrived arguments, more music). I didn't take photos of the three fondue courses we ate, but I am happy to share the goose family!

Poem for Friday, Baby Bunny, Sharpe

Collapse )

I got to spend Thursday with Cheryl, since she had to postpone from earlier in the week after a crisis with her cat. We went to Lebanese Taverna to get lunch and spent the rest of the day with Sean Bean, er, that is, Richard Sharpe...sadly not in person, but we watched Sharpe's Waterloo, Sharpe's Challenge, and Sharpe's Peril, thus finishing off the series, which I will miss but will undoubtedly rewatch again -- one episode every two weeks would last more than six months!

We took a walk to see the baby bunny before Cheryl left and were successful in finding him (see photos below)! Then Paul and I ate dinner and watched enough of the Orioles loss to the Yankees to see A-Rod pass Mays on the home run list before we put on Dig, which ended as crazily as it began. Why were the Orthodox Jews working in collaboration with the Fundamentalist Armageddon nuts? Who provided the DNA for the mini-Jesus? I love Jason Isaacs, but I have so many questions!
