Just a few random thoughts about BBC Sherlock, inspired by my sometimes slightly absurd real life (it got a little long, so please bear with me…)
Last week I took a plane to Dusseldorf, Germany (to attend a meeting for my work). On my way there, it was easy to dose off, but in the beginning, when the stewardess started the routine safety demonstration, I was still alert. And when she got to the oxygen mask, I couldn’t help smiling, thinking about this scene from TFP:
As I’ve tried to say before (and also more eloquently expressed in this meta by @sagestreet), I believe this is us, the audience. It’s difficult to pay attention as long as we’re being deliberately sedated with the usual, heteronormative ’warm paste’ stuff, in an environment short of oxygen…
On my way back, there was – as usual nowadays - a rigorous security control of all the passengers at Dusseldorf’s airport; they carefully x-rayed all the passengers’ belongings and made us step into a machine that scanned our whole bodies. It’s a bit messy perhaps, but I guess we have to be patient, considering how frequent terrorist attacks have become here in Europe and elsewhere. But it wasn’t until later that I remembered this from ASiB:
According to John’s blog, not only the plane, but also his blog crashed after this incident, due to all the comments:
I have a lot of work to do but I can’t get started, the weather is so nice today~
I feel a little bit bad because I’ve been lazy all morning (all weekend actually) but it also feels so good to lay around not doing much. But it’s okay, sometimes a break is necessary because life isn’t about being stressed, right?
