The original #basketcase
The Breakfast Club is one of my go-to movies and Allison is just the best character! If you like this movie, pick up One Of Us Is Lying! Less angsty and more YA Breakfast Club whodunnit and the sequel comes out next year!!

This very literal take on the prompt made me snicker. If your Grandma probably had this book, raise your hand. 🙋 #BasketCase#LilithJuly

“The United States Supreme Court Building has its own basketball court on the top floor that is often referred to as the ‘highest court in the land‘.”

Cinfhen Hahahaha 😂brilliant!! 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen This post was a happy accident. I went from ‘underwater basket weaving‘ to court cases about baskets. Yes, there are court cases about baskets. There are whole agencies to enforce sizes and types of containers for fruit. Who knew. Interesting, but too boring to post. So I was already in the court system and this gem fell into my lap. I keep imagining a Flying Circus sketch of judges in black robes and white wigs playing basketball. (edited) 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen I hope you enjoyed that little trip into the depths of my thought process. 😳🤯😬 7mo

LiterRohde @KarenUK Glad you didn‘t run away screaming “Make it stop!” or some such thing. It‘s scary being in my head for even a moment. Think how I feel? 24/7/365. 🤣 (edited) 7mo
KarenUK I cannot stop thinking of a Monty Python sketch now! 😂 7mo
booklover76 Now I am picturing the Justices playing basketball. 😂😂 Robes flying everywhere. Ginsburg taking a foul for elbowing Thomas 7mo
LiterRohde @Cinfhen @KarenUK @booklover76 Take the sketch I described above and mix it with the sped up chases of the Benny Hill show. That‘s what immediately ran through my head. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VUOe_hLg7Bo (edited) 7mo

Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Given the times, entail & threat of being tossed in the hedgerows if her husband died, it's easy to understand Mrs. Bennet's determination to marry off her 5 daughters but with her 'poor nerves' she definitely qualifies as a #basketcase

Inspired by @erzascarletbookgasm I chose Charlie for the #BasketCase prompt. Charlie is an outsider, who does not fit into the mainstream groups at his school, because he is dealing with not-so-mainstream issues.


Cinfhen I almost choose Charlie too and this almost made my top 6 list!!!!!! 7mo
ruskigurl16 Ooh! How is the book? 7mo
Kalalalatja @ruskigurl16 it is amazing! One of my all time faves 👌 @Cinfhen I get it, it would have made my top 6 the year I read it 🙌 7mo
KarenUK Charlie! 😍😢💔 7mo

(Day 2 - #BasketCase)

*The narrator of Dorothy Parker‘s short story, titled “A Telephone Call,” is progressively becoming a “basket case.” Readers can actually sense her coming undone as she cajoles and bargains with God to get a call from her lover. Of course, things have changed a lot since this piece was first published in 1930. But I‘ll bet there are some people who can relate (and who can remember old-fashioned telephones). 😂

Cinfhen Perfect piece!!!! 🏆now she‘d just text him like crazzzy or troll him on Twitter 😜😂😂 7mo
KarenUK @cinfhen 😂😂 7mo
KarenUK And I totally want to read this story...... 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen I know, right—do you remember busy signals? As obnoxious as they were, I sometimes wish we still had those kinds of telecommunications...I hate that everyone knows where I am...all the time!! 😂 7mo
gradcat @KarenUK It kind of hits too close to home...when we were young & dumb! 7mo
