So, I first want to say thank you to everyone of you who left a comment for me on my last post. You were all very encouraging and I really appreciate the time some of you put in to typing all those long comments. :) Since Christmas week, I and my family have been battling horrible colds and I am finally recovering from mine. This means that I basically have not see anyone outside of family for several weeks so I still haven’t gotten to be around a large group of friends and actually practice not holding back anymore but hopefully this Sunday I’ll have a chance to step out of my comfort zone more…. I seriously need to do this soon.
News of importance, I saw the first season of Sherlock! I’m working on a post about but to just share some brief thoughts now: I. FREAKING. FLIPPING. LOVE. THIS. SHOW. I am desperately waiting for the second season to be found at the library and put on my card so I (and the rest of the family) can watch the next three episodes.
(Yes, I do know there is a inappropriate scene in the first episode of the second seaon, about six different friends have warned me of it. I’m saying this now so you all don’t repeat yourselves in the comment section. We shall have the fast forward button ready, I assure you.)
I am dying to continue watching this show. Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes is SPOT. ON. PERFECT. He is amazing; he rivals Basil Rathbone’s version even with the large differences like being a modern version. But seriously, Benedict’s Sherlock is perfect. I love him to death. Martin Freeman as John is also perfect casting. He compliments Benedict’s Sherlock so well and they make the perfect Holmes and Watson team. The end scene of the first episode with them walking off the crime scene together in slow-mo with the theme song triumphantly playing left me with the hugest grin possible–it was so perfect (see gif above).
O.M.G IT’S ALL JUST SO PERFECT AND I AM FREAKING HEAD-OVER-HEELS BACK IN LOVE WITH SHERLOCK, I HAVEN’T FELT THESE BUTTERFLIES SINCE I WAS ABOUT FOURTEEN YEARS OLD AND IN LOVE WITH BASIL RATHBONE’S VERSION IT IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE FEELING EVER AND IT’S ALL EVEN MORE DEEP BECAUSE I’VE READ SO MANY OF THE STORIES THIS PAST YEAR AND I’M JUST REALIZED THIS LOOKS LIKE I’M SCREAMING AND THAT’S RATHER INAPPROPRIATE EVEN THOUGH INWARDLY I AM SCREAM AND I SHOULD BE DOING THIS ON THAT OTHER POST SO I WILL STOP NOW.
Let’s move to something that won’t make me spaz out quite like that, it’s a bit much, I think.
Well…. actually, considering I’ve been sick and stuck in the house for a couple weeks, there doesn’t feel like much to talk about in a post like this. I haven’t done much, I haven’t even written a thing for my NaNo book, but that’s okay because the plot took a turn I wasn’t expecting so I’ve been needing to take a break and just think it all over for a while. It’s been a good break.
Before I close, I would like to ask for your prayers for my family’s sanity this up-coming week and future months. I will hopefully be able to share more details with you later if my mom permits but for now if you could just pray that peace will come over my home especially for the upcoming few days I would be very grateful.
Until I get around to finishing those other posts, I bid you all a good weekend! God bless and may the Force be with you! :P
