Carousel Adams

The weekend so far.

We drove over to Riverside to visit the Crescent Park Carousel, a not-unusual thing for us. We go once or twice a year.

This time. I took extremely short videos. The first is of a finger-wagging animatronic carousel character. The second is the view toy get going around the ride twice, focusing on the ring dispenser and the clown you try to hit with the rings.

Today was supposed to be relaxing reading time, but instead I spent it cleaning my desk and struggling with some leftover tax bullpoop. Still not resolved, but progress!

A high point of the last 2 days: the first two episodes of HBO's John Adams on DVD. We really got into them. If you watch it with the special features on, there are nifty little factoids about the struggle for independence. I think Maggie feels my admiring comments about Abigail Adams (Laura Linney) are somehow disrespectful. It may have been the "Abigail Adams is hot." comment. Too much?

Anyhow, the videos.

Laura Linney is hot. Making that remark doesn't seem disrespectful to Laura Linney, although it may be disrespectful to your wife, depending on the nature of your relationship in this regard.
