Weekends are getting shorter

This weekend whizzed by. There was a little babysitting, some RBC watching, errands, chores, a little enjoying of beautiful weather today. Throw in a little more TV watching and hey, presto! It’s almost Monday morning.

Well, the RBC did about what was expected and everyone was reasonably happy except the Clinton campaign. Or maybe they were just pissed because no one sent Ickes the memo with the dress code. There was the Clintonista rally outside which looked as if it was fun for the participants. And dignified.

Today, of course there was the primary in Puerto Rico, where Clinton won big as expected but it doesn’t change the fact that Obama will probably wrap things up next week. So, it was a big news weekend in the political world in which nothing very unexpected happened and nothing much has changed. Except that Bill Clinton is reported to be really, really made about the new Vanity Fair article about him. He was already pretty mad, so this is just one more thing he has to be pissed about.

We finished the weekend off by watching the season finale of The Tudors. Spoiler alert – Anne Boleyn loses her head.  Who would have guessed that?  Next season is coming in 2009. They seem to be remaking the Six Wives of Henry VIII in real time. I just love looking at it. The acting is uneven, casting ranges from brilliant to WTF? and there’s been at least one unnecessary fudging of history, but it’s a feast for the eyes. Just about every scene looks like a Renaissance painting come to life.  There’s solace in it for today’s political wives, too. King Henry VIII was a worse husband than Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, John McCain and Eliot Spitzer all rolled into one.

    Save for the fact that those actors and actresses have the kind of smooth alabaster skin that I can’t possibly imagine anybody in the 15th century possessing.

  2. Oh, yeah. And the teeth. Everyone has an enviable and complete set of brilliant white choppers. Of course they didn’t as a rule get painted as they were, either. It’s something about the way they do the lighting, especially in the long shots, that makes me feel like I’m watching an Old Master.

  3. What is the thing with Clinton supporters slapping stickers on their forehead? This is the third or fourth time i have seen it. Is there an underlying reason for it or are they just nutters?

  4. Pretty much nutters, Lucy.

    As I understand it, the stickers prevent the government satelites from stealing their thoughts.
