Usually, I can pull a topic out of thin air. Usually, the blogging is quite the relaxing moment after a long hard day. Usually . . . .
But, let's see, what happened in the last five days. Nothing to write about there, right? Only:
- The third meeting of Peoria's restarted Sherlock Holmes society, some major authorial news from one of our members, and the return of the Suellen party favor, a Hansom tradition that dates back to the late 1970s.
- An Irish pub lunch with the current king of Indianapolis Sherlockians, Mr. Vincent W. Wright.
- The moving of a mass of Sherlockiana to an undisclosed location by the everyday transport that would not draw attention to itself.
- "The Adventure of the Medium, the Waterfront, and the Unmarked Bills."
- The San Diego Comicon announcement of the next three Sherlock episode titles.
- San Diego Comicon.
- "SherlockeDCC," the party whose Indiegogo fundraiser I happily donated to, which turned into a Twitter-trending fan triumph, complete with Actual Celebrities.
- Kristina Manente being Kristina Manente. I want to get a Bill and Ted phone booth time machine and get Kristina and John Bennett Shaw together with some of their friends to stage a weekend event. And then we'll all just go there when we die.
- A summer repeat of the Elementary episode, "Lesser Evils."
Sure, there was all that to blog about . . . in fact, there was too much too blog about . . . and a necessary bit of overwork and a resultant head cold. But it looks like the internet had enough to fill itself these past few days, so I don't feel too badly about not keeping up. May have to revisit some of that one day, though.
