Poem for Wednesday and National Geographic Monster Fish

Collapse )

Having had a week of vacation (and having plans to go to Seattle on Friday), I spent all day Tuesday doing work and chores and must do the same on Wednesday. So it was not an exciting day, apart from taking a walk in the rain and despite it being a short walk due to the weather, seeing six bunnies within two cul-de-sacs! In good news, the laundry is folded, the doctors' appointments have been made, and Adam and his girlfriend seem to be happy with their summer classes.

Plus I got to watch The Kids Are All Right with the awesome Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson, and -- what, no, I don't have a Mark Ruffalo problem any more than I have a Tony Stark problem! I do have some significant issues with the gender politics in the movie, particularly the scapegoating, but it was worth watching again anyway. Some pics from the Monster Fish exhibit at the National Geographic museum with Cheryl on Sunday:

Poem for Thursday and Central Park Zoo

Collapse )

My Wednesday was not particularly more exciting than my Tuesday. I finished the review I need to post on Friday, since I will be on a plane for much of that day, and I did other work and chores though I am not going to be caught up from being on vacation last week before I leave again this week. It was less rainy but quite cool for May, which I loved -- I only saw five bunnies while walking today, but they didn't seem to mind the weather and neither did the flowers. (My cats, however, were displeased and spent most of the day curled up.)

After dinner Adam had homework, but the rest of us watched Chappie. I was not expecting much, since the film had terrible reviews -- I was watching for Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver -- so imagine my surprise when it turned out to be quite invested in religion, politics, and parenting with scarcely any attention to the things the previews suggested (it's NOT about a happy childlike robot). It is one of the darkest films I've ever seen but quite engrossing. Here are some photos of the Central Park Zoo from last weekend:
