5 completely unimportant & pointless things from the last 48 hours

1. Yesterday on my lunch break, I bought polka dotted socks. Because it was Wednesday, and because yolo (ewwww).

2. The guy who sits next to me at work has been talking about wanting starting a book club. I told him I'm game as long as I can turn it into the Finer Things Club.


3. Yesterday I noticed that the inside of my purse has new car smell. Distinct new car smell. I have no clue how that happened, but I can't stop sniffing it.

4. Last night I dreamed that several bloggers and several of my coworkers asked to stay with me for a weekend. I said yes and then they all fought over the guest bed. And then there was a tornado. Most stressful dream of my life.

5. I need everyone I know to watch Sherlock so I can talk to someone about this.  I CANNOT stop thinking about the finale. CAN. NOT. It was all I could think about yesterday. I kept mentioning it to the guy next to me and I could tell it was taking all of his willpower to not tell me to calm down. I think there's a possibility I like this show more than Downton. I had no idea I could have this much love for Benedict a TV show. I need a 12 step program, stat. Except, no.


I haven't experienced this amount of love for something since I discovered Nick Carter and his Backstreet Boys in elementary school.

Help.

  1. I love the finer things club! :) Oh, yes, Sherlock's amazing. I haven't seen it yet, though, cause I'm waiting for it to come on PBS. Buuut, I'm dying.

  2. FINER THINGS CLUB. Ugh, I MISS YOU, THE OFFICE.

    I totally think we should start our own book club- and have weekly meetings via Google Hangout. ALISSA, I know you'll be reading this. Yes, you're invited.

    Remember the time Alissa and I came to visit you and had to leave so early in the morning because there WAS a tornado coming??? RIGHT.

  3. I get The Office reference - YES!

    Having to leave super early because of tornado warnings was like my very own episode of Storm Chasers. Or, Storm Runaways...yes, that's more like it.

    I'll join a book club!

  4. i laugh every time i see or hear 'yolo.' my husband and i were in an argument one night and my husband randomly blurted out "hashtag yolo." and so now we justify every stupid thing we do with a "hashtag yolo."

    i would definitely join the finer things club.

  11. I *almost* wasn't able to get past your use of yolo. I only read the rest of the post because it's you Michelle. Anyone else...

    I should really Twitter introduce you to my friend Megan, or maybe Erinn from It's the Journey [http://www.itjblog.com] they both watch Sherlock. Also, it's on my list after I get through with Doctor Who!

  13. I LOVED the finale. I kept harassing my sister to watch it so I could have someone to talk to about it. It was just so good. And Molly, ugh...I love Molly.

    I'm the Erinn that Fran up above mentioned :D If you ever want to chat about Sherlock, just hit me up!

  14. I'll bring the finger sandwiches if you start a real life finer things club.

  15. Ah, the finer things club. I'm so there.

  16. Here's my problem with Sherlock (and we've watched all the episodes so far so I'm not saying I'm anti-Sherlock): his telescopic vision. He can look at someone across the street and somehow zoom in on the sticker on the bottom of their shoe WHILE THEY'RE RUNNING. In what world is this possible? Watson is my favorite character.

    Sign me up for the Finer Things Club.

  17. You haven't met me yet, but I am Kelsey and Alissa's friend (we are going to see Avett Brothers in March together woohoo!). Kelsey sent me the link to this post because I have been bugging her for MONTHS about my obsession with Sherlock. At this point, it is so bad that I think that the word "obsessed" is no longer fitting, since it is so often overused. In the days leading up the Series Three airing until the days following the finale...I have been CONSUMED with this show. It's a problem.

    I thought the Reichenbach Fall had me reeling and theorizing- now I contemplate quitting my day job to figure Series Three out. SO MANY FEELINGS. All of the red herrings with the relationships didn't help my emotional state, either. Molly and Sherlock endgame, please...PLEASE? I don't want to leave any spoilers but WHO THE HELL IS DEAD AROUND HERE, ANYWAY? And the wedding episode- let's just say I have been listening to "December 1963 (Oh What a Night}" on loop for two weeks straight. With GUSTO (thanks, a lot, Sign of Three). But mostly, after these three glorious episodes have come and gone (in the time it takes to make and abandon a New Year's Resolution), I am left like a drug addict after my stash has run out- leaving me crying and shaking for my fix at the hands of Moffatt and Gatiss. Please! I'll do anything for a murder, fleeting snapshots of London, and accompanying dialogue that plays like a Ping-Pong match. Is that too much of an exaggeration? Meh- anyone who has watched the show will get it.

    Like you, I had also come to imagine Benedict Cumberbatch exactly as he is when playing Sherlock (and I wanted to, since he made me fall in love with his brilliant, mean-witted, sociopathic self within 20 minutes of the pilot). However, I have come to find he is just as funny and probably much more sweet in his own (IRL) right, and I have come to love him outside of the gray flowing coat. Kels and I saw him over the weekend in August: Osage County, where he played a bungling, self-conscious, eff-up from Oklahoma (among other disturbing traits) and he somehow made it work for me. You can't help but fall in love with Benny C. I think I am turning Kelsey, too. Nothing demonstrates my love for him more than in this moment, however. { http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNPp74zh8lM } Two minutes of pure, unadulterated love, right there. Especially when he says, "Promise." Sigh.

    Sorry for the diatribe but I needed to talk about this with someone who knows what I am talking about! Until I can get those other trolls to step up and binge the series, already. I am sure I will bore you again on the way to Avett! :)

  18. Dammit, I've never seen Sherlock but now you're making me want to find all the episodes and watch right now.

  19. I haven't seen Sherlock either, but now I want to. You're the 2nd person I've heard say it is extremely awesome. Off to research where to watch it (read: waste time instead of getting work done).
