Damn! It’s yet more TV forensics!…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s carefully selected adjectives are: fulsome, apothecial, lubberly, wannish, sororial, mancipatory, entomic, and mawkish.

I really must stop watching the bloody things – yes, I do know that the ‘perp’ always gets it in the end – in the courtroom for sentencing, orange prison suit and feet shackled, hands cuffed behind back, and all that – but I don’t sleep very well after sitting in front of that depressing stuff in the evening, even though I’m not really paying much attention, and I’m twanging and riffing on my guitar at the same time…
