I just read an article wherein the author told me that if I am “of a certain age” I probably remember The Great Mouse Detective. Seriously?!
“Elementary” is a travesty and “Sherlock” is pure genius. The End.
(For the definition of ‘travesty’ see the 2004 film The Phantom of the Opera or the last few installments of the Harry Potter film series.)
Remember on ‘The West Wing’ when Josh Lyman said “I’m so sick of Congress I could vomit.” Yeah.
(Though he be a liberal and yea verily though he be fictional, I stand with Josh on that one.)
One of the retired Facebook features that I miss is the ability to throw sheep at my friends.
You don’t really know what kind of person you are until you have “Magnetic Poetry” on your refrigerator and observe the kind of *insert adjective* sentences you come up with. (Then you forget about them and have friends over and suddenly those friends know too.)

It’s interesting to me that Dr. Sheldon Cooper is pretty much human selfishness and pride personified, yet he’s still such a popular character. Anybody else out there willing to admit that it might be because he simply says about himself most of the things we all think about ourselves, in the privacy of our own little sin-sick hearts? His relatability should tell us something. (I informed you thusly.)
And in other news . . . I just bought a ticket to go far, far away. Canada, gird your loins!
