As I’ve mentioned before, I have been watching The Blacklist. I don’t like the show. I feel like the writing is lacking in inspiration. The plotlines are predictable but not in a fun way. There are so many things that don’t make sense even in the universe of the show. But I watch it anyway. Probably because I like to watch good shows with Calah, and there are so many seasons of this show that I don’t have to find a new one for a while. Why I bring this up today is that I watched an episode and recognized an actor as The Giant in Twin Peaks. And I saw LOGLADY in today’s (properly) omitted word list.
Yesterday I missed AMEBA, AMEBAE, BANTAM, MATTE (SHAME ON ME), MENTEE, and METE.
ABEAM: On a line at right angles to a ship’s or an aircraft’s length. Yet there is no ALEE. OK.
