We saw the Sherlock Holmes movie today…the best thing I can say about it is that it had a rockin’ soundtrack.

I just don’t get the infatuation with these characters. For example, House (who, incidentally, is based on Holmes – arrogant, drug-addicted genius with a name that sounds like a place of habitation, etc. etc. etc.) is wildly popular. I can’t stand him! Why do people harbor affection for these characters? I mean, Watson follows Holmes around like a little sheep, just because he wishes he were as smart as Holmes? The man is insufferable!

Also, Robert Downey Jr.’s British accent is pretty bad, and whenever he starts speaking quickly it becomes completely incomprehensible. Furthermore, the whole movie was basically a ripoff of the Da Vinci code anyway with the whole conspiracy theory, map symbology, schpiel. Yeesh, Hollywood.

I seriously don’t get it. Anyone care to explain?

More knitting to come! Most likely this weekend.

P.S. Merry Christmas to those for whom it’s relevant!

New header. Opinions, suggestions, comments, please!

New theme! New title!

Be honest now…

a) Do you like it? (I am going to try to come up with a new header – I feel unoriginal going with the default one)

b) Did you get the references in the title before reading this question?

It’s really weird to have my own room.

Check out my new page.

Sorry it’s been sooo long. I was freaking out about college and stuff. Now I’m here, and it’s pretty cool. Here are some pics of my dorm (my bedroom is tiny, but our common room is supernice):

Awesome window seat thing in our common room - difficult pic to take with the sun shining in.

My bed (yeah, unfortunately top bunk) and dresser in our teensy room.

Also, some knitting has happened…

…although I forgot the edging yarn on this so while I wait for my mom to mail it to me, I’m starting an Ulmus out of some STR. No pics yet, still swatching.
