****Nerdy Fangirl Warning****
It's been 1 year, 2 months, and 3 days since The Fall.
And today it finally happened:
Yes. It'll probably be another year before we get Season 3, Episode 1 "The Empty Hearse." But, as of today, it is officially on it's way.
And that meant today was a cause for celebrating!
So today was my first ever "Cubicle Party" - and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to do it again.
There were already about 5 other "fans" in the office (I told one friend that on a scale of 0 to clinical, they counted as positively infected). So today was both a celebration with those fans, and a marketing push to
infect introduce Sherlock to more people. And I think it was successful because several people said they'd be checking it out :)
Alright, a run-down on the cubicle-party-components:
|[I started building the "shrine" last Friday with printed pictures on the left (gift from co-worker), Last April's Radio Times with you-know-who on the cover (gift from Lois in London), pictures I took last spring of Sherlockian chalk-art at UW, and Volumes I and II of the The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes.]|
|[A few details - including a parody of the telegram / text Sherlock sends John: "Baker Stree. Come at once if convenient... if inconvenient come anyway."]|
|[Deerstalker (aka - death frisbee), eye-glass, pipe, Sherlock Holmes V. I + II, and books published circa Sherlock's era]|
|[Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman|
Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Smaug & Bilbo
...can these two just please keep making art together?]
More symbolic donut shots:
Each of the donuts have significance to one degree or another... so ask if you're wondering :)
And finally, some fandom fun:
|[From one of the guys I've recently got hooked on this show]|
|[Ok... maybe I'm not that bad. Maybe.]|
Happy filming, Sherlock!!
We've become "the Fandom that Waited" - and wait we shall... but not without unbridled excitement, intermittent squealing, and occasional cubicle parties :)
