You’re Not the Only One, Molly Hooper

I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours, Molly. Sherlock, you’re not actually surprised, are you? She’s got a smashing one of you with your riding crop.

Okay, this is the last one. Honest. I’m bustling away getting ready for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and the Seattle Sherlock Convention (registration ends today, duckies). So I’ll keep this very brief. I think I’ve figured out how Sherlock hacks into John’s password protected computer thanks to this list here.  [“Not exactly Fort Knox.” — Sherlock]

Technology Has Made Their Lives Better

Sherlock: “If I wanted to look at naked women I’d borrow John’s laptop.”

John: “You do borrow my laptop.”

Sherlock: “I confiscate it.”

Of course, good ol’ feminist Sherlock has to protect John from viewing all those naked women as sexual objects. [“Sarcasm.” “Yes.”] A Scandal in Belgravia gave us so many good lines — and a naked woman. But in all fairness it did also give us a naked Sherlock.

Look, I’m sorry, but this meme just got to me so you’ll have to put up with a few more this week.

 

 

Uhm, Lestrade, Are You Sure You Want to Share That Info?

I assume Sally Donovan did a facepalm beside Lestrade. And, by now I hope Sherlock sent him a text saying “wrong.”

This will all be over soon, I promise. But the phrase just leads to so-oooo many jokes and deserves the ridicule. Hello? Welcome to the second decade of the 21st Century?

But then again I look at the stats for the condition of women overall in the U.S. (let alone the rest of the world) and I think “You came a long way, baby. What the hell happened? — Besides rap.”)

 

 

 

That Sheet Looks Pretty Binding Too, Sherlock

And, of course, oversized bedsheets are binders of Sherlock. Look, this meme has a lot more coming.

Everybody has to add their bit this week.

A few other highlights recently for Sherlock fans include:

Team Sherlock picked up a set of Silver Daggers at the 2012 Crime Thriller Awards including Best TV (Season 2), Best Actor (Cumberbatch) and Best Supporting (Freeman). Una Stubbs looked fabulous and Lara Pulver set all the gossips a twitter (both on and offline) by coming with Benedict Cumberbatch and reported sticking close and engaging in some Irene Adler flirting with Mr. Cumberbatch (who reportedly flirted back rather assiduously (well, he does know her measurements…).

Meanwhile, Team BC, raised just under £25,000 for The Prince’s Trust in pledges for the Palace to Palace Bike Ride. Benedict Cumberbatch looked dashing completing the 45-mile ride from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle with his teammates.

Not to be outdone, tickets for the Gay & Lesbian Switchboard Fundraiser with The Game Is On: An Afternoon with Mark Gatiss & Friends SOLD OUT in a very short time. The Friends are a collection of his Sherlock co-workers, including:

  • Martin Freeman
  • Louise Brealey
  • Rupert Graves
  • Andrew Scott
  • Una Stubbs
  • Steven Moffat
  • Sue Vertue

Gee, I can’t imagine why it sold out. [“Sarcasm.” — John Watson “Yes.” — Sherlock Holmes, Season 2, Reichenbach Falls]

And if by some chance you’ve haven’t heard, Benedict Cumberbatch, along with a host of other top British actors and actresses such as Tilda Swinton and Stephen Fry, are reading Moby Dick in honor of it’s 161st Anniversary. There’s a “Chapter” a Day, but they’ve posted Benedict Cumberbatch’s early to drive traffic to site here. Frankly, if this had been available the first two times I had to read moby Dick, I think I would have embraced it more. Just close your eyes and listen:
