A Window into Life in the Suburbs


"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Bored... bored... bored

I should be studying. Yeah, I've got to slog through this Cert IV course for my new job. It's hard because my brain is resisting the tedium and the ridiculous amount of gobbledegook it has to process.
Instead I'm scouring the internet and spending time on the Sherlock and Sherlock Holmes message boards engaging in Holmesian disputes.

Aaaaaargh.. but it's gotta be done. The study, that is... not the Holmesian minutiae.
I'm feeling like Sherlock at the beginning of "The Great Game". Fortunately I haven't got a gun or the walls might need redocorating.

  2. More like the second one.
    There are many film versions of Hound... they all take liberties with the plot in some fashion or another. But the one that get Dr Mortimer's age right is the Jeremy Brett version.
