So, this time I decided to visit some of the places where "Sherlock" was filmed. :D
I actually didn't get to see all that were on my list, but I think I managed most of the important ones...

Part 8 )

Coming next is an entry about my 4 theatre visits, including some stagedoor photos. :D This'll probably take a while longer though, because I want to write at least 2-3 sentences about each one and it might not be that easy to put all my thoughts and feels into words sometimes... ;-) *g*
luinalda: (Sherlock - Boast-a-lot)
Last week I ordered some Sherlock related stuff, a bag and a t-shirt, which I received on Saturday. \o/

The bag instantly became my new standard bag that I use to travel to Hamburg for the training course every day. :D It's awesome!! Pretty decent quality too, it seems.
The shirt at first delivery was a bit too tight unfortunately (even though I checked and compared with their sizetable)... But you can easily send it back to the shop and have it exchanged for another size (you have to pay the postage though if the product value is less than 40€). So today my exchange shirt arrived and it fits now. *yay* Love it! <3 (I'm just glad I chose 2 sizes larger right away, or I would've had the same problem again. *gg*) That was really fast btw. I only sent I off Wednesday and 2 days later it's already here, wow! :-)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 for mentioning this online shop! *g* They have lots of other cool and nerdy stuff, so I'm sure I'll order something there again. :D

Yay!

Look what finally got here yesterday. \o/ *squeeee*



<3<3 So I can start watching series 2 at last, hopefully this evening. :-)

Also, my RDJ CD arrived today. *yay*




In other news: I'm going to start a 9-month further education as "Technical writer" in Hamburg this Friday. Wooo! On the one hand I'm really, really excited about it as it sounds very interesting and good. :-) On the other hand it'll quite probably be the most stressful time of my life so far... O_O Classes are from Monday to Friday, and I will have to get up at about 4.30 a.m. each morning to catch the 6.20 a.m. train to Hamburg. Also I won't be home until 7.15/7.30 p.m. except Fridays when classes end a bit earlier (home around 3.15/3.30 p.m. then)... *blergh* And there aren't gonna be any real holidays either except 1 (!) single week in July and the few public holidays we have this year. :-( *sighs*  BUT I hope it'll be all worth it and considerably raise my chances to find a proper job once I'm finished. Wish me luck! ;-)

luinalda: (Sherlock text - only person bored)

After finally finishing my Sherlock rewatch last night (which continues to be completely awesome!!! <3<3 OMG, when will there be new episodes?!?), I was quite bored and started searching the internet for some Benedict pictures. *whistles innocently*

So, have a little picspam of the Cumberbatch. ♥♥
You've probably seen the pics before, but who cares. :p *swoons*

luinalda: (Sherlock - Holmes & Watson 2)
My Sherlock DVD arrived today!! \o/ *squeee* That was pretty quick, only 3 days. :-) So guess what I'll be doing this evening (and the rest of the weekend). ♥♥ :D

Also started watching "Fortysomething" yesterday. It seems to be a bit... weird. *gg* But it's very enjoyable and quite funny sometimes. :D Looking forward to the rest of the episodes. Hadn't seen anything with Hugh Laurie for a long time, so it's nice having him back. <3 And Benedict is adorable as well. <3<3

Yay!!

luinalda: (Rodney - asleep)

- Did get like 3-4 hours sleep last night, and totally feel like it too... *is dead*

- I couldn't resist any longer and ordered the Sherlock DVD last night! :D Hope it arrives quickly, so I can do a rewatch of the series. <3<3 Me obsessed much? Whatever gave you that idea? :p *lol*

- Still have to work on that effing Spanish Chile presentation, which I have to give on Thursday morning. DO NOT WANT! *sighs*

- Speaking of school... some more test results have come up.
  (English) Grammar: 92% (1)  [yay!]
  (English) Writing: 83% (2)  [that's not bad. considering the stupid stuff I wrote... *lol*]
  (English) Commerce: 70% (3+)  [should have been a bit better, I guess... ah well]
We should get the rest of them during this week, I think.
And only 3 more weeks now until the next test period... EEK!!!

Yesterday I watched the first episode - "A Study in Pink" - of BBC's new Sherlock series.
I really LOVED it!! <3 It was brilliant and very entertaining. I enjoyed it so much. :-)

I didn't know anything about it beforehand, so I was actually a bit surprised to see that it takes place in contemporary London, with high-tech mobile phones, computers and all... ;-) I'm not really familiar with the classic Sherlock Holmes (I have only seen I think 1 episode of the Jeremy Brett series and read 1 or 2 stories), so I didn't mind the modern touch. I quite liked the idea of the text appearing on screen when they were sending/receiving text messages or the like.

It had some funny moments as well. :D For some reason Sherlock's "Why have I got this blanket? They keep putting this blanket on me." (and the rest of that dialogue) towards the end totally cracked me up. *rofl* IDK *g* 

I think Benedict Cumberbatch was great as Sherlock! :-) And I can totally see why some people were reminded of The Doctor by him! I had that feeling most of the time, too. :D *g*  Oh, and I love his voice!!
Martin Freeman, who I always liked since Love Actually, was fab as John Watson, too. :-) Nice to also see some of Watson's "dark", tormented side.

So, looking very much forward to the other 2 episodes! :-)


I definitely need some icons for this show. <3 So if anyone has a recommendation where to find good ones, let me know. ;-) Thanks!

Mhh, this has quite set me in the mood, so I might finally watch the Sherlock Holmes movie with RDJ/Law tonight (yeah, I still haven't seen that one *blushes*)... *lol*
