08:09 pm - Facts
Fact 1: My ears hurt, thanks to a cold/low front passing through.
Fact 2: Richard Armitage will be playing John Proctor in a production of The Crucible at the Old Vic this summer.
Fact 3: I do not care for Arthur Miller. Or, indeed, most mid-20th-century American realist drama.
Fact 4: I won't be in London this summer, anyway, so I won't be tempted to see a play I dislike just for Mr Armitage.
Fact 5: When a thunderstorm arrived this afternoon, the rain blew sideways for three minutes.
Fact 6: According to fan reports, Benedict Cumberbatch said at Oz Comic Con this past weekend that he received an anonymous gift of a riding crop after "A Study in Pink" aired. He further said that it was later revealed to have been a joke-gift from Tom Hiddleston.
Fact 7: I don't have any comment to make on that.
Fact 8: Nor does Fact 6 relate to anything else I'm talking about. Oh well.
Fact 9: Due to references to the Gothic made in my presence today, I almost Kindled a copy of Victoria Holt's Mistress of Mellyn, which I last read when I was young. But then I remembered how much I dislike 1st-person narration if the work is not comic or classic.
Fact 10: I have no more facts to share.

May your middle of the week be full of the best facts!

It made me giggle with delight. :)

Cheers and a great Tuesday! Hugs!

See, I would say that #6 relates directly to #3, in some distorted way.

Enjoy the cool front while it lasts!

I would like to think #3 and #6 relate, but really, one of them will show up sometime in, like, Tennessee Williams and then my world will fall. ;)

Cheers and a fabulous day to you!

Sneaking a peak from my parents house: I think Cumberbatch and Hiddleston are trolling us now. I just have this image of them getting drunk together and sitting down and laughing at all the fanfic this will most assuredly generate. ;)

The Batch is quite possibly trolling, indeed. :)

Cheers! Happy time away! Hugs!

The weather is lovely, my ears less so. We persevere.

Hugs and a great Wednesday, A!

1. Feel better soon.
6. No words are required. ;-)
9. Victoria Holt! I remember The Shadow of the Lynx being a favorite of mine when I was young.

Thank you, and hee. :)

I know I read The Shadow of the Lynx, but I remember nothing about it. Oh well. Perhaps a trip to the used-book store is in order.

Hugs! Sending good thoughts!

Hope the ears are better soon.

Fact 2 is causing me a large amount of indecision. I like Richard Armitage, but I'm not keen on The Crucible and I blew my credit card to pieces getting tickets for Wolf Hall/Bring Up the Bodies. Those last two things should over-ride the first thing, but they don't...quite.

Fact 6 is causing a certain amount of brain melt :)

Oh, I so sympathize! Armitage will be a great Proctor -- as soon as I saw the casting, I thought "OF COURSE" -- but still. The Crucible. Ick.

Hugs, less brain-melt, and a lovely Wednesday. :)

Oh, my, Victoria Holt...I might need to reread one of hers, but just one, I think.

Oh, and that rain blowing sideways? It blew me all the way to Daytona today. That was not enjoyable in the slightest.

:hugs: for good lists and Wednesdays!

Man, that gusty rain was something. Glad today was easier!

Hugs and cheers for you!

I've never really liked 1st person narrative that much. It's usually an instant put down when browsing a book.

I blame my dislike of 1st-person when contemplating why I almost never read chick-lit. (Bridget Jones is always an exception, of course, but she's funny. :))
