Poem for Sunday, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Great Falls

Collapse )

Adam had plans Saturday evening, so we had an early lunch and went with him to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. I enjoyed it at about the same level I enjoyed the first one, maybe more because I liked Gamora and Nebula's relationship, but I'm pretty tired of the Marvel obsession with the filial anxiety of heroes (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, even Ant-Man) and would be really excited to see Wonder Woman if for no other reason than her lack of an Oedipus Complex.

We were going to go to the canal to take a walk because the weather was so gorgeous, but traffic was so bad that we turned off and went to Great Falls instead, where we saw snakes as well as herons, turtles, and geese. Adam went to watch The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with friends while we watched Doctor Who (not great but so much better this season than the past few), Class (I won't cry if it doesn't get another season), and Graham Norton (Salma!) Please stay safe, Londoners.
