  1. I could live quite well and happily on salmon for the rest of my life. Other than that, I kinda like Solo's list. Cheese, nuts, and fruit are some good eats.

    1969

    I don't know that I'd go THAT far. Just that this generation's energies seem to be spent in talk, rather than action. Maybe it's better that way.

    1969

    Y'know, with the cost of a college education going through the roof, you'd think people would try to take over university offices NOW, rather than relying on politicians' promises that will probably never happen. I've got some ideas regarding this, but I'd like to keep my pristine record of no warnings or banning. /rabble-rousing

    Most disappointing show cancellations

    Truxton sounds to my ears like someone who's truculent - quick to argue. How about Guedron? French name that made its way to the American South. /end threadjack

    Once in a while I still think about Rubicon. It had such a slow burn going, no one had the patience to wait for it to play out. Oh, well. We still had The Americans.

    Careerchat III

    I'm so happy for you! Another move is a PITA, but when you're in the heyday of your career, it's pretty much a given. My husband and I moved more times than I can count. One time we were in a house for approximately three months and we had to turn around, sell, and move again. Luckily, we made money on the house (unusual,) which softened the pain a bit. My husband is from Connecticut. It really is a beautiful area. Damn cold, but you should be used to that in Chicago. Best of luck!

    Small, unworthy things: part whatever

    Nope. That sounds fine, but just the classics for me. No Curly Joe, IOW. Shemp was acceptable, but Curly was the BEST. His immortal words: "I'm tryin' to think, but nothing happens!"

    Exercise & Fitness: Summer Bodies (TBD)

    It's not just that men have a thing about abs. They look pretty good on women too.

    What's for Dinner part 8.

    I think that may be an oxymoron. Sorry! We had pork in mustard sauce with roasted potatoes and salad. Sounds boring, but was delish.

    What's for Dinner part 8.

    Pancakes (or waffles) and chicken seems to be a thing over here lately.

    I stick with the Three Stooges. Timeless.

    She deserves more than to be put in a thread about small, unworthy things, for sure. I'd never heard of her. Thanks to you, now I have.

    A Brooklyn State of Mind

    Hope you have a great time! I'm jealous. In my next incarnation, I'm going to live there (hopefully, not as a vagrant, but there's worse places to be if I were.)

    How about a thread where you have to choose your most beloved shoes - shoes you should probably just throw out, but you can't because they're so darn comfortable and cool. I've got a pair of older-than-dirt Bally's women's loafer type of shoes with about a 2" stacked heel that has a menswear look to it. I need a shoehorn to get into them, but once they're on, they just conform to my feet so beautifully. The leather is so soft and supple to the touch too. They look great with jeans. I've had them resoled once too. But to be perfectly honest, they've done their duty and should be retired. I just can't bring myself to do it. Yes, a pair of shoes has wormed its way into my heart.

    I'm a court reporter and recall vividly how much I hated reporting voir dire. People are generally unaccustomed to speaking about themselves in front of large groups and they tend to clam up and mumble, making the court reporter's job a living nightmare. Speaking of voir dire, interesting factoid: Jury selection in the O.J. Simpson case took over 300 DAYS. The folks who made it onto the jury were sequestered during the trial under the watchful eyes of bailiffs (one of which was a good friend of mine. Fun guy.)
