|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!
Fact 6 is awesome. :-)
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
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!

*hugs* and I hope your ears, and the weather, improve quickly.
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!

He's a scamp, is Hiddles! :)
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. :))
