A League of my Own

Just turned 30-midwesterner living on the East Coast. Fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock, KISS, the Cubs, music I can dance to and reading. Also, I collect magnets.

Mr. Freeman, who just received Emmy nominations for his performances in “Fargo” and “Sherlock: His Last Vow,” is giving us a Richard who almost disappears before your eyes, even when he’s making orgasmic noises while strangling a victim with a telephone cord.

Thanks, New York Times, for making me spit out my coffee this morning. From their circumspect review of Richard III (x)

This is very accurate. I totally thought of you thegeekcooks during this part of the show because I knew you would find it hot.

Number 5 is clearly very important! :P

Totally! Also showing that I can never be serious with these things! I saw your other tag.  I’ve just landed and gotten home from England so I will do that one soon as I have recovered <3 

[Benedict and I have had] a discussion—how vain is [Sherlock], really?

All the great Sherlock Holmeses—including Benedict—are always impeccably dressed, always beautifully turned-out.

I doubt if Sherlock Holmes ever started, ah, dating a woman, that she’d ever see a mirror, because he’d be too busy adjusting his hair. It’s the thing that Benedict started doing, in-character, every time there’s a mirror he just goes—[Moffat motions checking his hair]—'Still cool.'

—Y’know: 'I find no women attractive, but they'd better fancy me.’

So we discussed how much that is just his need to be the alpha male in the room, and to take command, and to therefore look good … or is there a real moment of vanity?

He wears expensive shirts; he wears good suits. And Benedict’s not the only Sherlock Holmes that does that. They’re all well-turned-out.

[…]

He would dress well because everything that is worth doing at all, as far as Sherlock Holmes is concerned, is worth doing extremely well.

Sorry it took me so long to respond! Didn’t have access to wifi on my laptop for the last few days of my trip :)

Once you get this you have to say five things that you like about yourself, publicly, then send this to ten of your favorite followers! (This is not negotiable)

  1. I like that I can make people laugh and that I am good company to be around.  Example: 12 year old niece has given me the name “Party”
  2. I like my hands/fingers.  
  3. I am a really hard worker.  I’ve excelled at all my jobs and have always been highly regarded as an employee. Also going along with this, I am very adaptable which makes learning new jobs easy for me.
  4. I am caring and empathetic towards others.
  5. I’ve got a great rack ;)
