. . . I spent literally hours (OK, maybe just two of them) polishing the wood floor.
The wood looks infinitely better than our old blue carpet, but the old blue carpet took just a once-over with the vacuum that took maybe ten minutes. The wood requires sweeping, vacuuming (to get the pet hairs the broom misses), spot cleaning with a damp cloth (to get other pet residue that can only be appreciated by owners of dewlapped dogs), and finally polishing.

. . . I watched the Rogers and Hammerstein Cinderella with Amber and Misha. The special effects leave a lot to be desired, but the music beats Disney all to heck.
. . . I finally have a chance to watch Tin Man. I don't have anything on the program for the Composer's Forum. I am thinking pretty hard of staying home with the Man and some knitting.
