07:02 pm - Six Things on 6 February
The following things are true, as of this moment on 6 February 2015:

1) I have spent all day -- to be honest, the last three days -- saying to various and sundry, "What do you need me to do?" In my head, however, I am shouting "THIS IS NOT MY DIVISION."

2) Just call me Laura Lestrade. And now I need to rewatch "The Reichenbach Fall."

3) The only thing that got me through yesterday evening was a pot of herbal Cure tea (not to be confused with THE Cure, as fronted by Robert Smith), Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime, and repeated plays of "Champagne Supernova."

4) My headache is too dreadful to be discussed.

5) Master Danger had a bath today, which he endured more in sorrow than in anger.

6) What, or who, I need right now is a Jarvis of my very own.

Cheers to all, and may your weekend be wonderful!

Jarvis, yes. Howard Stark, not so much. Does Mycroft have a butler, do you think? Just thinking you'd prefer Mycroft to Stark...

[hugs and hopes for better days ahead]

Oh no no, I wouldn't want Howard Stark! I just want Jarvis as played by James D'Arcy to take care of my house and me.

Mycroft would fulfill a whole 'nother kind of desire. ;)

Hugs hugs to you!

It would be grand to have a Jarvis around!

Hope the headache flees rapidly. Cheers!

Jarvis and his care-taking ability is the real dream. :)

Hugs and a great weekend, K!

Did anyone actually tell you what they needed you to do? Or realize that perhaps they needed to do it their own damn selves?

The above question may be unduly influenced by my own experience. ;-)

Champagne Supernova is way better than the theme song from WKRP in Cincinnati which is what I was singing under my breath all day.

Theme song aside, Jennifer Marlowe and Bailey Quarters were awesome. Though Jennifer's hair had to have originated in an alternate universe.

This was a long week, wasn't it?

The work thing is complicated and distressing, but half of the people asking were on the side of the angels. Didn't make it any easier, mind. ;)

Earworm earworm! Alas! But WKRP was a delight. Am suddenly thinking fondly of Venus and of Andy's tight jeans.

This week was possibly actually two weeks in disguise.

[hugs hugs] Happy Saturday!

Sending you virtual tea for the headache, which I hope will have gone by now.

Tea is a lifesaver, and so are you.

[hugs] Happy Saturday! Hope there are good books and adventures this weekend for you.

What I love the most here is your rueful acceptance of minute to minute existence. You are always a role model for me. Hugs!

(Also, I may have to start referring to you as Laura Lestrade. Just saying._)

Can you imagine what Mycroft could get accomplished with both Anthea AND Jarvis? England truly would be his. {G}

May you have a wonderful headache-free glorious weekend :-)

Maybe it's just as well Mycroft doesn't have Jarvis too! Too much, too much. :)

Hugs and tea for your weekend!

Oh, I have missed you! "Not my division" indeed, and yet we do go on, being helpful and competent, and having of headaches.

I hope things are better now...
