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!
Man, that gusty rain was something. Glad today was easier!
Hugs and cheers for you!
