Poem for Thursday, Bottle Shock, Eastern Market

Collapse )

We had Angela and Kevin over for shish kebabs and Bottle Shock (still delightful -- Chris Pine with long hair, Napa Valley scenery, and Alan Rickman quoting Galileo, "Wine is sunlight held together by water"). Which of course required wine. The weather was gorgeous all day, though some autumn allergen gave me an overnight and early-morning sinus headache until I took meds to compensate. There are still plenty of green leaves, so the red leaves look particularly gorgeous in contrast.

We just watched this week's Nashville, on which nearly every character acted like he or she was an eleven year old entitled brat, plus there wasn't enough music, though after reading that Hayden Panettiere is in treatment for postpartum depression, her character's storyline seems so sad. Now I am going to go crash. Here are some photos from the flea market at DC's Eastern Market, including paintings by Zachary Sasim, who did the Capitol in fruit and the monuments as Van Gogh's Starry Night:

Poem for Friday and Star Wars Costumes

Collapse )

This week's weather is making up for all the rain last week -- yet again it was gorgeous out and I got to enjoy it several times, not least because we had to move all vehicles out of our parking lot which is being repaved tomorrow along with half our neighborhood so we all had to park several blocks away! I had lunch with Kay for her birthday at our usual (Tara Thai) where we had our usual (pad see ew) which the hostess knew we wanted before we needed to order. Then I walked a bit around Washingtonian Lake because it was so pretty before coming home to learn that the plumber thought two of our toilets need repairs.

I saw my parents briefly -- they brought us fresh fruit and vegetables -- and got a bit of work and other projects done before taking another walk, where this time a bunny put in an appearance after hiding for several days. We watched tonight's Heroes Reborn (every episode should involve an anime convention -- really every episode could be 85% Katana Girl, though she needs some girlfriends) and Sleepy Hollow (there should be a ban on Jack the Ripper stories, no one's new angles on them are ever that interesting, but Ichabbie <3). Here are some more photos from the Star Wars costume exhibit at the EMP Museum in Seattle:
