    Introverts, how is your day?

    The day was busy. Managed to get out of my bed before noon, because it's a cool weekend before next heat wave. Installed a new radio-receiver-thingy, which actually turned out to be a computer with more cables going in and out. Said installing included re-wiring the whole system, some disappointments and quite a lot physical activities. Then I tried to pimp up my sofa, which included cutting a wooden panel in two, a lot of drilling and screwing, and even more disappointments (definitely need another concept). As usual, this also included chaos magically spreading around the whole flat, adding to the chaos that have been there already. I'm right now (getting old is no fun) and I'm also really cheerful about the prospect of cleaning the mess tomorrow. But at least the sound is good.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    I think it might have been inspired by the old movie, but I haven't seen, or don't remember it.

    The Political Thread

    Okay, can you give us a reliable source? Because apparently crossing the border was never considered a crime, so separating children from their imprisoned parents doesn't apply. And the pictures of "children in cages" under Obama show children who crossed the border alone. Which is another situation completely. PS: I don't really like the term cages. I can imagine that this kind of (ugly, that's true) placement may be the only one way to have the crowd under control. And I hope it was temporarily. During the mass migration to Germany in the early 1990ies, people were placed in sports halls divided into smaller compartments made of cardboard. A friend of mine spent 2 years in such a place until he found an apartment. The place me and my family was placed after we crossed the border looked like a resurrected concentration camp. With a big chimney towering above it… Don't remember how free we were in our movement, because 1) I was sick and lied in bed with fever 2) running away would make no sense anyway. The last point might be different from USA border situation though.

    Good. At least you don't shoot the walls.

    Oh, don't forget Melania's cherry-on-the-top fashion fail.

    Recently watched movies

    I love Empire of the Sun. A very underrated Spielberg movie.
  7. IMO Brussels sprouts should still be "al dente". They are not everyone's thing, like spinach, but I like them both.
  8. Going nuts about tits. Sounds a bit dendro-nutritio-ornithological.
  9. Okay, you mean the third meaning of the word then. There is a nut mix of the edible kind here, called Royal Nuts. I always read it as Royal Crazies, but now…

    Well, that's THE POINT of attacking people.

    Hot Gifs

    I'm a right brow riser too. Some people even found it funny. Also funny, both Sherlock and Mycroft rise the same brow.

    Why Sherlock But Not Holmes?

    Before I fell into that bottomless pit of the Sherlock fandom I actually knew only that Sherlock Holmes existed, was a super detective and was written by ACD. I never had any interest in detective stories, and even managed not to watch RDJ's version. I only got to watch the show because it was mentioned in the DVD BHTS stuff from Hobbit. So as it surfaced on German TV, it tickled my curiosity. The rest is… you know. Someone said that there is a certain age for certain stories and if you miss it you will never find those stories appealing. It's probably the case with me, because the only joy I have in fighting my way through the canon, is finding the bits used in the show. For me it's Mofftiss' versions of the characters that attract me.
  13. Actually - because the wind came from the south, which doesn't happen too often - it rained into my under-balcony. The first time since I have it, and it's more than a decade now.
  14. Oh, my, I remember that. The DC bad hair weather. It was the first and only time my hair actually got curls! The rain feeling like a warm shower. And the very unwanted "gift" I brought back home: I never perspired much in my young life - until that moment when waiting in the line to George Washington house I felt something dripping down my back. And since then - I cannot stop dripping like a beeeping waterfall, even before I get really warm. And it's as icky as it sounds. We've had this kind of weather too, which also brings extreme thunderstorms. The one we've had yesterday: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DfRJj-bXcAEGOC-.jpg
