    @Lh718 D and I are on our endless loop of rewatching the Bones episodes we like. We're watching the one where Jared gets his dishonerable discharge and Booth gets him an interview. D just started laughing out loud. Our spoilery conversation:

    Me: ... what?
    D, still laughing: He DIES offscreen.
    Me: ...
    D: Jared is in several episodes, then he disappears for a long time, and then when they mention him again, he's DEAD. They done him dirty.

    Yeah, but not as dirty as Sweets.

    I blame John Francis Daley for Sweets. He decided he was done.

    After his character is painted as just going totally wrong in life!! That upset me a lot more than I ever cared for him.

    (Not Sweets. That tore me up hard.)

    But he just asked for time off to do his stupid Vacation movie. Just like they did with Zack, they were like, "Oh, you want leave? Cool, we can ruin you."

    Listening to the podcast Criminology for the first time. Season 1 is on Ted Cruz the Zodiac. Kinda interesting. A tidbit that made me lol for real:

    Suspect: So I know you're interviewing me as a Zodiac suspect. Uh, just FYI I know that he did some stuff in Riverside. I was in the area at the time, but it's totes a coincidence. Oh, and a book I once read in HS that really made a big impact in my life is a work closely tied with the Zodiac. Just making conversation.

    Okay why do we even have police?? I get that the extraordinary cases make it to podcasts, but Jeff Goldblum bless the bullshit is always the same.

    Like, where do you get off telling me my missing loved one, who has lived a certain way with specific long-term habits has randomly decided TO ABANDON HER CHILDREN to live that nomad life?? Maybe do something other than be lazy and condescending from behind a fucking desk? At least pretend to give a fuck?

    Lawyer: so you don't know why your husband of 46 years kept legally changing his name? You never asked him?

    Wife: no, not really. He would just tell me it was all legal.

    Lawyer: (lists at least 6 different whole ass names of multiple national origins)

    Wife: he just always told me it was legal. I never knew why he was doing it.

    Lawyer: okay. So you and he have been living on pensions and disability. Did you never wonder how he was paying for multiple trips to Europe?

    Wife: not really. He managed it, didn't he?

    Ok I need to know more about this case.

    @Honey it's from The Lady Vanishes:

    "In 1997, Marion left for Europe on the trip of a lifetime. She was in regular contact with her daughter Sally until one day, she inexplicably vanished.

    For more than 20 years, Sally and police have been investigating what happened, uncovering some astonishing information, including Marion’s name change, the use of her passport to travel back to Australia, how her bank account was emptied at a seaside town, not to mention the rumours at the school where she taught and the stranger she met before she left."

    That sounds vaguely like Where’d You Go, Bernadette. I wonder if Marion’s case was inspiration for the book.

    I love podcasts from Australia. Shandee's Story, by the Australian's Hedley Thomas, is such a wild ride.

    A funny exchange in court (not a spoiler) :
    - How long have you had problems with your memory?
    - I don't remember.
