Ginger of the North!

I'm really a ginger, in Canada. I love Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch. I have great friends and a great job. This blog is a random collection of thoughts, ideas, and stuff I'm currently obsessed with! (Note: this blog is occasionally NSFW. Ye be warned.)

Getting ready to a pin-up photo shoot

My friend is a photographer and she’s awesome. So far I have pin-up hair, pin-up makeup, and I’m drinking a G&T, and it’s just past 330 in the afternoon.

I could totally be a 50s girl.



Pick a fandom, any fandom! The winner of this giveaway will receive a personalized, specially-painted, fandom-inspired pair of shoes! (Pictured above: Sherlock, Star Trek, Doctor Who. These are merely examples of my previous work, I will paint them any way you want!)

apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

Mara Wilson is a blessing and should be cherished by us all

grenpics asked: Hi cumberbuddy ! i hope you are fine ? can you explain to me the joke adout the shoe size of ben ! i am french and i dont understand this joke ! pleaaaaase help me ! your are my light !


Well they were chatting about “adult films”  Malkovich gamely went off on a tangent about how forbidden sexuality can be in most movies, and how verboten it was to show something onscreen as innocent as “a thigh or upper arm.” Cumberbatch misheard the latter. “Other arm?” “

"Other arm" is a pun for penis. There’s a saying "his third leg" - penis (a big one LoL.. run!) So it is similar saying.

So then;

"Do you want to ask another question? Ask what my shoe size is."
"What’s your shoe size?" asked the fan, to more shrieks.
Cumberbatch grinned. “It’s a whole other arm.”

You’ve probably heard what they say about guys with large feet? Their supposed large dicks. The ‘arm’ is already a dick here so he’s just having one.. little… penis joke. 



Ben making penis jokes is pretty well the highlight of my July.
