When I saw the above image of Mr Cumberbatch at the recent Esquire/Tommy Hilfiger London Collections event, I thought “Isn’t that sweet? Even stylish magazine logos long to be Benedict’s Errant Curl™.” Then I had another thought: maybe the Errant Curl would like to be a stylish magazine logo? Well, its hairy wish is my command…
What a great ending to my Aussie trip, so I met him again in Sydney and I gave him my present, finally. He was lovely and beautiful as usual. We took a pointing photo, his errant curl and that legendary denim shirt were perfect lol!
I gave him the clays at the autograph session. I showed it to him and explained it was the holmes family clay of him and his parents. He shouted a cute “wow, that is good…nice..“ I believed he giggled a bit but he looked down so I couldn’t see his smile.
He thanked me and then I informed him about me selling the clays to his fans worldwide and to thank him for being my inspiration I donated % of my profit to charities (Prince’s Trust and Save The Children). I was so nervous and he kept starring at me (those blue eyess!!) not helping at all!! Lol. Then he replied “Thank you very much, you have to keep some for yourself for what you’ve done. Really appreciate that” (sobs)
Then he almost signed my clays thought that I will sell/auction it for charity. i shouted, “No no! That’s for you. I sell the muffin tops one!” He replied “Oh really? Thank you, thank you very much” NO B, THANK YOU!!
Then he started to write another long message for me:
Pei. You are brilliant and thank you for these brilliant creations and for your donation to charity. Much love!
And another one:
Pei. You rock! (Internal screaming)
I blocked the queue for like 2 minutes, so I thanked him and he replied “lovely to see you again!” (Deaded) i wanted to add lots of thing but he was generous with his time for me so I kept my mouth shut and walked away. I was so high I forgot my bag, I missed the stairs and sat down with blank face lol
