Scotland/Ireland snippets, part 5



At least twice now U.S. customs & immigration has sequestered me in a white room while taking away my passport for . . . I don’t know, analysis? Though these days they’re nicer. One time three officers and I spent the too-long background-check time chatting about action movie stars.

TV Guide’s summary of The Trainer, a Lifetime TV movie:

A recently divorced woman joins a gym and quickly becomes friends with Alex, a young trainer. Unfortunately, Alex is psychotic and a murderer.
