Our newspaper had this great Valentine cartoon in the Op-Ed page yesterday. Boy, does that cover a lot of Obama haters...

Our own Valentine's Day was nice, though my daughter torpedoed our late-night plans. Augh! She's 14 and won't stay in bed at night—it's like having a 2-year-old with night-terrors all over again. I will be SO glad when Mock Trial is over for the year. It's given her all kinds of personal confidence and social skills, but it eats up too much time and makes her anxious about tests and schoolwork, hence the insomnia and the night-wandering. Boo.

In other random news, I've been trying out the 4-suite version of Spider Solitaire, just to make myself nuts. I looked to see if there was any "help" for it (i.e., strategy information), but no. If there were, it would probably just say, "Ha-HAH! Suckerrrrr!"

I actually won a game over the weekend, but the odds are against me.

We're getting caught up with Fringe, and just finished 4x11 with the visit from Alternate-Astrid. She broke my heart at the end, in the way that Fringe's moments of unexpected pathos so often do. I ♥ her.

Still in the queue: some Once Upon A Time, a buncha Chucks, Raising Hope, a Burn Notice, a Grimm, and all the SPN S7 stuff I haven't gotten to. And that's not counting the Netflix or library disks on the DVR...

Today, though? Reading LJ Idol fics. Voting ends tomorrow!
