Poem for Tuesday, Maryland Zoo, Mistress of Spices

To NightCollapse )

I had a very nice Monday. I spent the morning catching up on the news -- Libya did not get a lot of coverage here sandwiched between the Royal Wedding and Bin Laden, and I'm still not sure what's going on in Syria at the moment. Cut for people who are as tired as I am of reading other people's musings about Bin Laden's death.Collapse )

At lunchtime I had the delightful pleasure of getting to see dementordelta who was en route home from Aeternitas and swung by to see me. We went to California Tortilla, she brought my family brownies, I gave her a stuffed lemur (don't ask), we watched Obama's speech from the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner (Lion King joke! King's Speech parody! Trump-trumping!). After she left I had to fold laundry, so I watched The Mistress of Spices, thinking it was a romantic comedy; it's actually more of a supernatural drama and rather intense. Aishwarya Rai is lovely and I ended up ravenous for Indian food, but the screenplay seemed clunky and stereotypical in spots despite having been written by someone who's Indian, and I was really freaked out by the scene near the end with spoilers.Collapse )

Our evening entertainment before we got Stewart and Colbert to put life in perspective was Chicago Code, which continues to get better, and catching up on Sanctuary, which is never memorable to me but nearly always enjoyable! Here are some photos of the residents of the African region at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore on Saturday:
