Poem for Tuesday and Historic Atlantic City

Collapse )

I had an early lab appointment to have blood drawn for my checkup next week, so I started my day hungry and a little woozy though I got the really good phlebotomist. So I stopped to get bagels on the way home, ate one when I got there, then went back out to enjoy the gorgeous weather after our Sunday of rain. After rushing to the Pinchot Forestry Building to get a Halloween Squirtle -- the fall colors near Rock Creek Park are quite lovely -- I met gamers for a Darkrai raid and hung out with some of them for a while before going to Walgreens, then came home for laundry and work.

We watched last week's and this week's episodes of Black Lightning, whose conspiracy is getting too convoluted for my taste -- like The Gifted, I preferred it as a family drama without an insane amount of onscreen violence. Since the Patriots were easily beating the Jets, we then watched the insane season finale of On Becoming a God in Central Florida. Here are some glimpses of historic Atlantic City, where the life-size Monopoly board is gone, but the street name tributes remain. (Trigger warning for a former Trump property in similar condition to his presidency!)
