I was out a little bit, picking Dad up at work so he could get his car at Firestone. I thought about going to Longwood Gardens, but it was already close to 2:00 p.m., and they close at 4:00 or 4:30 p.m. in the off-season. Maybe tomorrow, if it's still nice out. I bet their "Tommy" crocus and winter aconite is blooming, and maybe the witch hazels. Some of those witch hazels are so nicely scented. Our crocus leaves and miniature daffodil leaves are coming up, where the snow has melted. The tulips with red-variegated leaves are in a very sheltered spot, and their leaves are up. The pussy willow is starting to do its thing -- it's in that same fairly sheltered spot by the house. I'll have to go look at the top of the rise in back of the house, and see if the snowdrops are blooming. I love the snowdrops.
In other news, I got my "Eskimo Kiss: We Do Believe in Fairies" T-shirt. I am so set for Soapfairy accessories now. I have rainbow earrings I got at the Philadelphia Gay Pride Parade festival, and I'll wear them one of the days.
Alles Was Zahlt had a lot of Roman and Deniz. I'm sure it will be better when I read the subtitles, but I got the gist. Added: The dialogue was good, but I had gotten the Roman-being-seductive part just from body language and tone of voice. I love it when he gets to be a "sexual creature." The show also had a lot of the Bergmann sisters bonding and scruffy Axel. I'm glad that Katja is finally out on the ice. It seemed a waste to get an actress who can really skate and not use her skills. Actually, a little worse than that, because from what I understand, she's a skater who wanted to get into acting. They'll have a lot less use for stunt doubles. This was one show where I wanted the whole thing translated.
One Life to Live: No Kyle and Oliver, though the Sierra Rose custody battle rages on. Kim invited a couple of her fellow pole-dancers/strippers from Las Vegas to be her bridesmaids. Apparently one will be staying as a regular on the show.
Verbotene Liebe: Thore continues to rank high in the "German sex god" pantheon. He's not conveniently travel-sized, but I'm sure some VL fans have brought along extra-large suitcases to try to fit him into. After all, they have to allow room for those long legs and broad shoulders. I wish they'd have Christian and Olli working things out and having make-up sex. They have sizzling chemistry together.
