The Baker Street Babes were, unfortunately, hacked by this man today.

It is common knowledge among Sherlockians that Jim Moriarty is a Sugar Bush Squirrel enthusiast.  And so, when he simultaneously hacked into our tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook accounts, he nefariously began to inflict images of the world’s most photographed squirrel upon our followers.  Jim Moriarty, consulting criminal, is a very bad person.

There are some who imagine that Moriarty loves nothing and no one so much as mayhem, chaos, and the thrill that comes of battling Sherlock Holmes.

He is also a man who spends the majority of his time seeking out new Sugar Bush images.  After being hacked, our blog fell victim to this wicked behavior today, and we regret any inconvenience this might have caused our friends, followers, and podcast listeners.  We will now be returning to a Sherlock Holmes blog, and apologize for today’s squirrel interlude.  Happy April 1st.

There comes a time in every fangirl’s life where they have to make a very serious decision: Do I continue my fangirl life or do I join the dull masses of society?

Thankfully, there is a third option, though one, we regret, that may give you all some pain.

We have decided to leave the Sherlock Fandom.

But we are not abandoning our fangirl lifestyle, oh no, you see, we’ve been converted to something much better than Smellock Homeboy & Juniperberry Watsandwich. Something so amazing and unique and clever and downright beautiful that nothing from the precious words of the canon to the delicate razor sharp cheekbones of the Cumberbunny can compare with it.

This amazing thing? It’s Sugarbush Squirrel.

Yes, Sugarbush Squirrel.

The INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR and most photographed squirrel in the world. You see, nothing can compare to her fluffy tail and blue steel expressions. She’s a versatile and extremely talented actress who has played more roles to perfection than any of those other subpar actors can ever hope to dream of. She is of many talents, including being very musical. Yes, I know, Sugarbush can even sing! She’s played Tevya in Fiddler On The Roof even! Try and match that Robot Downton Jr! Sugarbush can outrival Benediction Cucumberbadge in biopics as well, having played Einstein, Nostradamus, AND controversially, Sarah Palin. Not to mention, Sugarbush SAVES LIVES! I’m sorry Johannesburg Lemur Millerlight, but can YOU do that? I don’t think so.

We, from this day forward shall be known as The Sugarbush Babes.

We understand this may come as a shock, but our love for Sugarbush has been steadily growing in the past few hours and we believe this is the right decision. Our podcasts will talk about how amazing Sugarbush is. We’re trying very hard to get Sugarbush on the podcast, but she’s so busy with her international superstar lifestyle, it’s been hard to pin her down. We hope to invest in the production of nuts so we can bribe her, wish us luck!

You see, Sugarbush has been with us this whole time, and no one noticed! She’s even been in Sherlock! Rather, she’s the main plot point of the show! I don’t know how we didn’t see it before, but look!

Here is Sugarbush telling Stamford to tell John about Sherlock!

And she popped up in Hound as a surprise!

But most importantly.. guys, we didn’t want to spoil you, but this is just too amazing. IT WAS SUGARBUSH WHO SAVED SHERLOCK!

She has always been there. Always. We were just too blind to see her, but we have now seen the light. We will miss you Sherlock fandom, but do not fear, you will join us in the Sugarbush fandom. We know it.

Thank you, and praise Sugarbush,

The Baker Street Sugarbush Babes

Train of Life

Some folks ride the train of life

Looking out the rear,

Watching miles of life roll by,

And marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance,

Of wasted days gone by,

And curse their life for what it was,

And hang their head and cry.

But I don’t concern myself with that,

I took a different vent,

I look forward to what life holds,

And not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine,

As securely as I can be,

I want to be out on the front,

To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change,

Blowing in my face,

I want to see what life unfolds,

As I move from place to place.

I want to see what’s coming up, 

Not looking at the past,

Life’s too short for yesterdays,

It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy,

While you are looking back,

Go up front, and you may find,

Your life has jumped the track.

It’s all right to remember,

That’s part of history,

But up front’s where it’s happening,

There’s so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living,

Is not where we have been,

It’s looking ever forward,

To another year and ten.

It’s searching all the byways,

Never should you refrain,

For if you want to live your life,

You gotta drive the train!
