  1. It’s called a sporran. It’s like a traditional Scottish fanny pack—kilts have no pockets. It also helps hold the front of the kilt down in a stiff (heh) breeze.

    Property Brothers

    Three words for you: Greek. House. Music. [oontz-oontz-oontz-oontz...but in Greek] That's what my neighbor plays all summer, at window-rattling volume. We share a fence, and there's no escaping it. I've never said anything to him, in the interest of maintaining neighbor relations (I just don't want to be "that guy"), but I find myself daydreaming about retaliating with show tunes or boyband music cranked up to a volume that could induce an ear hemorrhage.

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    [From under the Spoiler tag]: ...the main character(I've already forgotten his name)... He actually is never named, so you haven't forgotten anything 🙂

    Internet Pet Peeves

    People who ask questions with easily-Google-able answers on social media, e.g., the dopes on our community FB page who post asking, "Hey, does anyone know where the fireworks are on the 4th of July?" It takes every bit of restraint I have not to reply, "Oh, I'm so sorry your Google is broken 😞 " or to drop them a lmgtfy (Let Me Google That For You) link. The sarcasm would probably go to waste.

    School Cafeteria Food--The Good, the Bad, and the Inedible

    I am old too, and as I recall from my college days, cereal was not just reserved for the morning meal 😉
  9. Even better is the comment someone (presumably a former roommate) left: I've never seen you drink a Naked and we lived together. Bwah!

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    And I can't believe that the Resident Assistant (RA), Diamond, didn't boot him out or escalate the issue to Student Affairs or Housing if he refused to leave. My heart goes out to her because she obviously feels some guilt over Lauren's death (and the Mank was so very sweet, trying to make her feel better), but it really is part of the RA's job to make sure that only paying customers (so to speak) are living in the dorms. In retrospect, that would have been one way to get rid of the guy--let someone know he wasn't paying to stay there! Money talks, even if Campus Security is sitting around with their thumbs up their ass. To partially answer the second question, Lauren met Sean (I forget his real name, too) at a bar; I believe he was working Security.

    S07.E03: The Price of Admission

    Ah, I'm glad it's not just me! I can only watch Elementary when I'm fully-alert and not eating anything crunchy, and my husband automatically cranks the volume when we put it on, because, as we say, "they mumble!" We still have occasional episodes of, "What'd he say??" I for sure did a double take when I saw the name in the credits!
  13. Always and forever my favorite! I still have the whole series (late 70’s/early 80’s era—“oval paperback” editions) proudly displayed in my guest room, which doubles as my library. Well...all but the last five, which were released after I had kind of aged out of the series. Those are very hard to find, and really expensive when you do locate them 😞 The Trixie books are like comfort food for my brain...every now and then I’ll curl up with one and just relax for the hour (or less, because I practically know them by heart!) it takes to whip through one. BTW, both my BFF and I have cats named Trixie 🙂

    S17.E12: The Art of Fashion

    And her hair is getting greasier! Does she spend so much time putting her outfits together that she can't be bothered with basic hygiene?
  15. I know what ice fishing is. [/Titanic reference]. I just find it a bit crass. Then again, I too am an #oldfart ... almost twice the #oldfart Logan is, as a matter of fact!
