First: Kitestring App is actually a website where you can ask to be sent a text at a predetermined time... and which will contact an emergency number you determine with a message you write if you don't answer.

Second, and totally disconnected: Today I played hooky and went to the Fort Frederick Market Fair, aka "Colonial re-enactor mega-mall." A good thing I came home from 221B Con with several hundred dollars, because they're all gone now!

I went wanting to get: regency short stays, a chemise, a gown, a short gown, some pretty pottery pie plates, a camping-style dutch oven, a cooking knife, a pot or two, a floorcloth, an apron (or two), maybe a sewing pattern, and a meal.

I came home with: a linen chemise, 2 blue and white pottery pie plates, a cooking knife, 2 tin-lined pots, 2 floorcloths, a full-outfit servant sewing pattern (chemise, short gown, petticoat, pocket, cap), a green glass bottle (free refills of cider with your meal), 2 bars of natural soap, a beautiful pottery mixing bowl, a few wooden spoons, a green marbellized leather billfold (because I don't take my big wallet and credit cards to cook over the hearth), a couple of colonial graters, a plain pocket, and sunburn.

Now I know why people at Riversdale rave about Market Fair. It was a helluva drive, so this won't be an annual pilgrimmage, but I'm feeling much more outfitted for the Kitchen Guild!

I'm also patting myself on the back because even though I spent quite a lot of money, it all came out of the con kitty and not the general spending budget, and although tempted by many things, I stuck entirely with either kitchen guild materials of the floorcloths (which I wanted for the living room). The second floorcloth was an impulse, but M *does* tend to spill water a bit as she waters the plant in the living room...

World's Most. Hilarious. AU. John offers himself as a *cough*not*cough* virgin sacrifice to a dragon
Sacrifices Must Be Made
“Are you honestly suicidal?” the dragon hissed in annoyance, a thin ribbon of steam coming from its mouth.

“I came up here to be eaten by a dragon,” John said, “I’m hardly expecting to be improved by the experience.”


The dragon sat down in front of him, his head still slightly above the level of John’s. “I believe the traditional gift is a virgin sacrifice.”

"Yeah, well...” John’s cheeks went a bit red, “it’s a small village, and there’s not really much to do when it’s not harvest-time.”

Abso-frigging-lutely nothing to do with Holmes in any universe; just a nice creepy story/perspective about Labyrinth

Fic: Errant Emails (JWP #7)
It was easy enough to understand how it happened. They had the same last name, the same first initial. They were roughly the same age. They shared a passion for mystery novels. They both studied medicine. John owned the JWatson username in six places. Joan seven. Occasionally poignant, occasionally hilarious.

The linkdump is filling up with non-Holmes stuff, so I thought I'd post this before everything Holmesian was lost in the rest. (If you ever wondered about the random stuff that ends up in the linkdump, it includes this, this, and this at the moment. )

Anyway, on to Sherlock!
I may have posted this before; speculation about FALL: IOU Explanation – Grimm’s Fairy Tales Cipher

More FALL speculation:

I am vastly amused by the meme going around Facebook saying "What if Moffat doesn't know how Sherlock survived the fall and he's waiting for the Internet to tell him?"

I know everyone is going to be talking about the new episode tonight (that'll be me too in about two hours), but in the meantime, the linkdump has been growing exponentially and hasn't been cleared out in months.

Cabin Pressure mini-icons: spoilers for all of series 4

John Finnemore discusses the Wokinham episode, and includes a picture of the scene where Martin's brother picks him up... and the actor playing him picks up Ben. I cannot actually figure out where Ben's legs are.
Forget What Did: Wokingham

Elementary meta discussing a scene from about 8 weeks ago. My general dislike made me bleep over this moment, but the OP made me stop and rethink because this IS a big deal; like the OP, I can't think of a similar situation on TV (and precious damn few in real life):
I wanna talk about this scene for a second. Until that moment I never realized that I needed to see this on television; a man asking a women that she seek out opinions other than his.


Like this black and white art of Sherlock

The story I was raving out earlier. Snapshots of a long J/S life - Genus: Apis

Red Scharlach takes a line from the new Star Trek movie promo and turns it into a put-your-drinks-away-from-the-monitor icon

If you are EXTREMELY phobic about the SLIGHTEST suggestion of a spoiler, don't click this one. For anyone else, Red is riffing off of a twitpic of part of the set, which in my mind doesn't tell you anything. Except that Red's funny.

Vashtra and Jenny recreate a scene from Holmes canon

Mark Gatiss plays with the skull onset

More Holmes canon art, now with snarky subtitles. Some bad language, if you work at a very conservative workplace

Ghostbees points out that "I hear 'punch me in the face' every time you talk; it's usually subtext" applies nicely to canon

"A gaze from Watson is..." (gigglesnort indeed!)

I just like this art

Remember that story where Martin Crieff was Sherlock's half brother and Martin had a stuffed airplane named Planey? Turns out it's part of the Thicker than Water series.

The crackiest of crack: a zoologist's report On the Courting Behaviour of the British Sherlock
The Sherlock was standing on the top of an outcrop of rocks to one side of his enclosure, staring out over the zoo in a dramatic fashion. Posing, thought Poppy privately. Despite the lack of breeze his coat and scarf swirled around him as though caught up in a storm. No one had been able to work out how he did it.

Moffat & Gatiss are such geeks that they cast a former Holmes as a cameo in the Diogenes Club

I spent rather a lot of a work night reading up on this series about little Sophie growing up on Baker Street. (This is not the same as the Sophie Lestrade series). What can I say, it has a ferret in it.

Lifehacker pointed at an interesting set of questions to do your year-in-review -- not what have you accomplished per se, but:

What went well for me last year?
What accomplishments did I have?
How did I improve my life?
How did I improve my relationships?
What did I remove from my life that is now making me happier?
What do I wish I had taken more time for?

It's not a bad set of questions.

I'm also thinking that I'm going to move the Sunday achievements/goals to Goal Happy. It's a web-based goal and achievement counter, which means there will be less paperwork and typing than the current method, which is, well, paper and typing. I don't know if it'll output anything I can post to LJ, or if anyone is going to feel particularly bereft if I stop posting that stuff here. Sign up is free, and you can set your goals to daily, weekly, or monthly.

I'll keep up with the Little Free Library posts. I'm looking into library apps so that I can scan books in and out - any recs?

I love Northanger Abbey - it's actually one of my favorites. But I also love [ profile] sarahtales spoofing on gothic novels (there's link to her Jane Eyre takedown somewhere around here, and again on the link I'm about to give).

So it's two, two, two great things in one when Northanger Abbey appears on Gothic Tuesday.

A couple of reasons why you should read it:

In vain I have struggled. It will not do. You must allow me to parody NORTHANGER ABBEY.

JANE AUSTEN: Catherine Morland, not really heroine material. She was kind of plain and not that bright.
BELLA SWAN: She was just before her time, yo.


HENRY’S SISTER ELEANOR: Hey girl, how’s it going?
CATHERINE: I spend my days mostly writing ‘Mrs Catherine Tilney’ in my trapper keeper, and climbing out of windows to avoid John Thorpe. If you see John, tell him I’m washing my hair and I’ll keep washing my hair until L’Oreal is invented, because I’m worth it.
ELEANOR: Got it.
