Misc. Stuff  
I've had a few random things that didn't seem worth making a post about individually, so I thought I'd combine them.

1. We've been experiencing a bunch of frostquakes happening around here, lately. They happen when the temperature changes rapidly, and water gets into the ground and then freezes and expands. It's sort of like something giant has just landed on your roof, or a sonic boom. It's not dangerous, apparently, but it's slightly unsettling. But kind of cool, too. No pun intended.

2. I have a new laptop! It is pretty. Its name is Oliver, and it does everything I ever wanted anything to do. I love it.

3. I stumbled across this article today, and it made me lol. Because I do enjoy it when non-fandom people report on the Sherlock fandom doing things all fandoms do as though it were particularly weird for that fandom. Also: Curly Fu and Peanut. I don't know which one I like better.

4. AU's are successfully mended, for the most part, but as usual with a Sherlock episode, I have no clue how many days it's supposed to take place over. So, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to decide when people should know what they need to know. Also, what is [Spoiler for Series Three]Mary's profession? Is she John's secretary at the surgery, or some sort of RN or RPN? I couldn't catch Sherlock's deductions of her, so I don't know if it's ever explictly stated.

ETA: Sherlock spoilers in comments, too.

No worries, I'm sure I could go looking myself if I get desperate. I was thinking something administrative as well, but our doctor's offices work differently: our doctors move from room to room rather than have the patients come to them. So, the doctors would be the ones coming to get the patients. The nurses sometimes call you in to take your BP and weigh you, though, so I wondered if she was some sort of RPN. Maybe a receptionist?

Frostquakes were scary before we knew what they were. Now they are just sort of annoying.
