Big Dot

She didn't make up helicopter parents - but clock tower? Uh?

And it's no good, I'm going to have to ask, and I'm sorry if I'm being thick or if I missed something through not paying attention, but - T?

Big Dot - Kind of local, I guess, at least local to the US:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Clock_Tower_Massacre
How about a Goldilocks class - the evals come back with "class was tooo sloooow" "Class was toooo fast" "Class was just right."
And the T- Minus, oh that's something we have here called a countdown. See, we have a space program, and before something momentous happens we say, "T-Minus 10, T-Minus 9." I'm teasing you.

Big Dot

Hmm, so T = 11 December? Like Thunderbirds are Go! sort of thing? You want us to guess?

-- Morbid comment warning--

Not to make fun of your coworker but these days people say "go postal" or make Columbine references.

Clock tower (yes, I had to look it up too) is a little dated.

Jenny

yeah...Clock Tower is an old reference, but if you lived in Texas or where in college at a university campus nearby at the time it's no different that going postal or Columbine or Kent State. It's all relative.

Friend #.75 - Dated? DATED? You are on my list. Damned whippersnappers.

Clock tower was a spontaneous reference, and, yes, the woman who said it is very quick and clever. And she's a fan of Supernatural, like me! :-D

Autumn

As soon as I read the clocktower comment I thought, "She's talking about UT in the 60s." Of course, I've lived in Texas (just about) my whole life.

Autumn

PS-Although I also immediately think of the "Back to the Future" movies...especially the first one when they're all "SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER! SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER!" But I also refer to the old Volkswagen vans as terrorist vans based on that movie...I was so not impressionable as a young child ;)

TasterSpoon

I also thought of Back to the Future.

Big Dot

Well, what I was GOING to say initially was Why go for such an old psycho-shooting reference when you have so many more recent ones to choose from? but I thought that was maybe a bit harsh from an outsider. Should have known you lot better! (And besides, we have had one of ur own.)

#3...you know your my older sister!

TheQueen

Big Dot - T is Takeoff (or just Time of Event if it isn't a takeoff). Actually, it isn't a takeoff. You can guess, but I wish you well with that.
.75 - It is dated, but that's what I like about it. Only people of a certain age can appreciate it best.
3 - And she's a Perfectionist, like me.
Autumn - Ha! I never think of VW vans that way. I think of them as rolling sex wagons.
TasterSpoon - Huh. I'd forgotten that scene. Only saw that movie once.
Big Dot - I felt the distance from the crime would have given it more license to mock, plus it is a mild shout-out to my Texas roots. And you had a psycho-kiwi killing?
.75 - Actually, 3 - spank her for that. Is she saying "your" instead of "you're" just to bug you?

3

.75 - Oh, if only you were my one and only sibling. Although my niece kinda makes my brother worth the effort.

#0.75

3 - Apologies on the improper use of you're then.

Queen - AGE DISCRIMINTAION! :P

TheQueen

3 and .75 - I have nothing to say. Talk amongst yourselves.

Thanks. You are dismissed.
