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.

But apparently MF is very fashion conscious! He wears . . . eye-catching outfits. He apparently got Cumberbatch to start dressing better when BC was happy in old hoodies and jeans. "Fashion" is not entirely out of left field. Have you noticed the care he takes with ties and pocket squares? They aren't choices that I would make, but some people think that they are . . . Fashion.

I haven't seen what he used to wear the past, but I don't think he's that bad a dresser now, personally. He makes unusual choices, but they suit him. He's usually tailored properly, and everything roughly matches. He's just a bit snazzy, I think. I mean, I can think of a lot more people who dress worse than he does. Benedict used to wear weirder things.

I'm not saying MF is a bad dresser; I'm saying that I find fashion amusing. I'm sure the fashion world would find me equally amusing if they bothered to look at me.
