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.)

A lesser-known tale about one of the most famous partnerships in crime fiction will be published next month by Walker Books in collaboration with Royal Collection Trust.  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s much-loved characters, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr John H Watson, are bought to life in a book measuring just 38.5 x 30 mm, an exact replica of the hand-written story created by Conan Doyle exclusively for Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House in 1922.

I am SO pumped about finally being able to read this in the tiny original version. This is easily one of my favorite Holmes stories.

How amazing is this!

The English language is like London: proudly barbaric yet deeply civilised, too, common yet royal, vulgar yet processional, sacred yet profane. Each sentence we produce, whether we know it or not, is a mongrel mouthful of Chaucerian, Shakespearean, Miltonic, Johnsonian, Dickensian and American. Military, naval, legal, corporate, criminal, jazz, rap and ghetto discourses are mingled at every turn. The French language, like Paris, has attempted, through its Academy, to retain its purity, to fight the advancing tides of Franglais and international prefabrication. English, by comparison, is a shameless whore.
