    I have a few of my childhood pictures. Here's one of me and my brother. I was around 8. I had very sticky-out ears as a kid, but I grew into them, lol.

    No, they definitely don't. Unless they happen to have an upper airway infection at the same time but that would have nothing to do with the vaccine. I can't compare my post vaccination symptoms to Covid because to my knowledge, I fortunately haven't had the latter, but my experience was headache, nausea, fever, shivers, muscle and joint pain and extreme fatigue 8 to 48 hours after the shot. According to my knowledge, a strong reaction does not necessarily mean you've been exposed to the virus, it's simply an expression of your immune system doing its job and young people with strong immune systems are more likely to have these symptoms. What does seem to be true however is that people who had Covid have a higher risk, if you will, of developing strong reactions to the vaccine. Doesn't mean that that's a reliable sign of previous infection though.

    Exactly. Works surprisingly well with the boys, especially circa S1. John: You saved me. I owe you my life. Sherlock: No thanks. I’ve seen it and I’m not very impressed.

    OK, so basically you pick the number of people and optionally give them names, then click the Generate button and it plugs your characters into a randomly selected joke -- or am I missing something? Yours is pretty good. Here's the best I've gotten so far: Kirk: Spock, what do IDK, LY, and TTYL mean? Spock: I don’t know, love you, talk to you later Kirk: Ok, I love you too, I’ll just ask McCoy. I may have just discovered the true origin of slash fanfic!

    That last sentence is something I used to tell myself every day then eventually stopped... Now I think it's totally fine to think about fictional people 24/7. I relate to the bit about being as morose or rude or clueless as Sherlock without being able to claim his intelligence or charm (or looks, in this incarnation). That's definitely one reason I adore season 1 Sherlock because he says so many things that I think but would never, ever get away with saying out loud (plus I think he's just plain entertaining that way). Now, of course I don't know you but I'm willing to bet you have some of Sherlock's positive attributes and strengths as well. At least one. And since we got to know him better and better over the course of the series, there's a lot more to chose from than smarts and capability and physical advantages. One good side of Sherlock I think I can see in myself is his lack of resentfulness. I know people got upset that he didn't hate Mary for shooting him but I "get" that. If someone harms me, I'm generally more interested in why they did it than how I could get back at them too.

    Okaaaay, this one's not funny so much as eerily accurate after S4 ... Sherlock: I really like this whole ‘good guy, bad guy’ thing you guys have going on. John: It’s not an act, it’s just that I’m mean and Lestrade isn’t. This one's a little better but I had to modify it a bit to have it make sense... John: I trust Sherlock. Lestrade: You think he knows what he's doing? John: I wouldn't go that far. And the winner is....! Sherlock: I love you guys, you're the best thing that's happened to me. John: We're the best thing that's ever happened to you? Sherlock: Yes! Lestrade: I'm starting to feel a little sorry for you.

    Funny, I recently saw a post on tumblr that was a picture of a cat sitting on a stone staircase with the words "Please do not sit here." On the staircase. Apparently, cats just don't care about human laws.

    Well now, you seem to be more self-aware than Series 1 Sherlock, which is certainly a point in your favor. Like you, I apparently have a tendency to be rude or awkward or annoying without meaning to be -- without even being aware of it. I assume that's common for introverts. But I've pretty much stopped worrying about it. Nowadays I'm happy with just having good intentions, because I can't control other people's reactions (especially if they don't even tell me about it). There are a few people I get along with just fine, and I'm usually content with that. One thing I've discovered -- on the rare occasions when I've found out why someone took offense at what I said or did, they've usually misinterpreted. Different people have different ways of looking at things (and how boring the world would be if they didn't!). If it sometimes leads to misunderstandings, I guess that's just the way life is. Anyhow, welcome to Sherlock Forum!

    Oh, I don't know. If I were being arrested and forced to lie face down on cement with my hands tied behind my back, I think I'd find a nice soft warm kitty on my back very comforting. Geez, that cat must weigh a ton. 😛

    Hope you both indeed started with better month! I believe you both have cats, so do pet them, it helps. At least you won't get arrested like this man, but he gets his priority sorted. It's old news, but certainly memorable. I believe Florida Man is definitely a weird species. Goes with title "Florida Man Running from Cops Stops to Pet Cats, Goes to Jail"

    Let me see if I understand how it works. Hey, I like this Sherlock: Why isn’t the statue smirking at me? John: It isn’t smirking at anyone, they’re all just imagining it. Sherlock: Three of us saw it, John. How do you explain that? John: *points at Mycroft* Sleep deprivation. *points at Mrs.Hudson* Paranoia. *points at Moriarty * Delusional personality disorder. Hey! This one is mean! Sherlock: Would you guys be there for me if I was going through something? John: Nope, absolutely not. Mycroft: I hope it sucks, whatever you're going through. Mrs.Hudson: I hope it emotionally scars you for the rest of your life. Moriarty : I hope you reach out to me so I can ignore you. General Shan: I can't wait to go to your funeral, knowing I could've changed that outcome. This is so our boys! Mahaha Sherlock: There is no future. there is no past. do you see? Time is simultaneous, an intricately structured jewel that humans insist on viewing one edge at a time, when the whole design is visible in every facet. John: Mycroft: Lestrade: Everyone Else At Sherlock’s Surprise Birthday Party: John: All I asked was if you wanted to cut your birthday cake first.

    I lost all of my childhood picture, so I don't even remember how I looked like. Pretty sure it's not only downhill, it's avalanche for me. Now I have to get used to you not looking like Jeremy Brett. Reality still hits me now and then that some of you are not your avatar. on vaccine again, I hope there is no serious problem with antivaxx. No NO! All this should be teamwork, we are on second year now, that is embarrassing. It shouldn't be this hard to defeat.

    Got my second dose of Pfizer on Thursday. Had yesterday off from work, which was just as well. I had no major side effects, but I definitely felt this one more. The first jab was nearly undetectable, but the second one was a real Ow. Felt like a bee sting. I had the same nurse as before, so I don't think it was her technique. Other people reported the same thing. Immediately after I got back from the observation period, I put a cold pack on my arm for 2 hours and took three Tylenol. My arm still got sore, but doing this bought me about three additional hours before that happened. It wasn't more painful than before, but it has definitely lasted longer. First time was 24 hours almost to the dot. I'm in hour 47 now and I can still feel a little pain when I lift my arm. I switched up arms so this time was in my dominant one (the right). I developed a headache between my eyes around 9 or 10 pm that night that lasted for a couple of hours; I took 3 more Tylenol before I went to sleep. No problems sleeping; no night sweats, chills or fever. At worst, I felt tired, heavy and stiff. Kind of like you do when you've got a cold, except there wasn't any congestion or coughing. I had a stuffy head for a little while when I first lay down, but that went away. That might have also been from dust mites or the seasonal change in temps. All in all, not bad. I'm glad I didn't have to work the next day but I think I could have, if required--though pushing it may have made me feel worse than I did at home. It was a great excuse to lay in bed for most of the day watching movies, in between bouts of making food. My appetite seemed normal, but I tried to eat fairly light over the two days because I didn't want a lot in my stomach in case I felt pukey. I didn't. I would advise, if feasible, that anyone getting the second shot (or the first, in the case of J&J) schedule a sick day for the following day. My employer was generous in allowing us an hour each time on the clock to get the shots without having to take time. I was prepared to get more ill, so I would have taken a sick day if I hadn't been off already. You most likely will feel pretty OK, though you might not feel up to your usual activities and will just want to sleep or relax. If you do have to work, at least try to take a half-day or do lighter activities if you can. If your job involves being on your feet a lot or heavy lifting, probably best to avoid that first day after. I'm at work today and I feel fine now.

    Alas, a similar crime was committed at my house. I left a large pastel drawing (a work in progress) on my drafting table. The next morning there were little kitty paw prints all over it. And all over the floor, and all over the bookcase, and all over the computer desk.....

    Yes, that's my general impression. No, that's not the feeling I get. I think those are the real Holmes and Watson. When Holmes looks out the window, and then the scene changes to modern London -- well, he and Watson have just been discussing the future, so maybe he's imagining us? All I know for sure is, that scene gives me goose bumps!

    I noticed that immediately, too. Shall we surmise that Mr. Fry is also a huge fan of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes? It's quite a cosy little mutual Holmes admiration society they've got going. When he was inducted into the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, Mr. Fry was still a teenager and the youngest-ever inductee into that august body. Here's Simon Callow reviewing SF's audible version of the Sherlock Holmes canon. This one might be one I've got to have. Listening to Mr. Fry read Sherlock Holmes has got to be preferable to wading through the approximately 50-pound hardcover annotated version assembled by Leslie Klinger, a handsome item that continues to collect dust on my shelf owing to its gargantuan weight. I'm saving it to swing at some future intruder's head as a weapon, provided I can actually lift the thing when it's required. Normally I am not an audiobook fan, but for the right voice reading material perfectly matched to it, I make exceptions. If I could get Charleton Heston, the voice of Moses, reading me the Bible, that'd be another win. https://www.johnhwatsonsociety.com/stephen-fry-sherlock-holmes/

    I can recommend Lyndsay Faye, who has written several stories on your list. "The Whole Art of Detection" is a great short-story collection. Ms. Faye was inducted into the Baker Street Irregulars on the strength of it. https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/the-whole-art-of-detection-lost-mysteries-of-sherlock-holmes_lyndsay-faye/11637886/#edition=15625545&idiq=31812674

    Well, canon Moriarty "didn't last" either, did he? And Mycroft was in only one or two stories, barely a recurring character, let alone a regular.

    You can pay $8/month or $80/year. I subscribed for $7/month, but they’re raising the price $1. ”Loki” starts on June 11. It’s 6 episodes long, and they’ll release one episode per week. If I were you, I’d wait to subscribe until they’ve all been released. That way you can binge “Loki”, “WandaVision”, and “Falcon/Winter Soldier”, and only pay for a month if you want to.

    That's the people the Queen is planning to grant various titles to (e.g., Sir or Dame) on New Year's Day. It's possible to decline, but I don't think many people do. There's also an Honours List for her official birthday in June. He died in September. You'd think there'd be some sort of provision for honoring deceased people, but apparently not. I agree! My father poo-pooed the idea that anyone could play Holmes better than Rathbone -- until he actually watched Brett!

    I've heard that the basic Johnlock concept has been bantered about since Conan Doyle's stories were first in print. Don't know that anyone wrote stories about it, though, they just wondered what was really going on at #221B. "Surgery" may actually be a pretty good analogy, then. It generally takes a while to recuperate, and the outcome isn't always positive. I know two people whose fathers died as a result of routine colonoscopies, and those aren't even surgery, just "procedures." Everyone sees things from their own perspective, and we're all pretty good at rationalizing what we want, telling ourselves that it's also good for other people. Mary tried to leave, thinking it would protect both herself and her family, but John selfishly wanted her back home with him, so he and Sherlock rationalized that they could keep her safe. I don't fully understand Sherlock's reason for taunting Vivian, but he seemed to be showing off, another selfish behavior. Neither of them intended to jeopardize Mary, yet if they hadn't done those selfish things, Mary would probably still be alive, somewhere. If Mary seems more selfish, that may simply be because she has a lot more to rationalize than us ordinary folks.

    But I'd like to respond on the off topic ones!! Yes to people reading only first sentences of the email. And trust me, that is not only American thing! I like to solve issues, delegate or having follow up discussion after meeting. So I make effort of putting them in points, as direct as possible, into an email where all parties could respond accordingly. While there are one or two that are as detailed, most yes, just read the first two sentences and ask about something that are already explained in the same email. Then someone else could reply it, but it goes back and forth that it becomes chaotic and all the points are scattered everywhere! Gahhh Not during working, but those shorten abbreviations or informal languages drives me nuts too. They are getting worse and worse, to the point that it makes little sense and just infuriating to read. Wait.. is this it? I have officially become a grumpy older human being who walks around and curse at everyone and shakes my fist to the sky??? WELL IT'S ABOUT TIME!

    I hadn't thought to check, but of course you're right -- the plain "Barts" moniker (no St -- with or without a period -- and no apostrophe) is indeed introduced in the very first chapter of the very first Holmes story, "Study in Scarlet." So of course that's what Moftiss would call the place in the scripts! It seems obvious now that you mention it. Did they actually call her a lab assistant, though? I don't recall her having any specific title (other than "Miss") or job designation even later on. There's her ID badge, but it's never shown close-up in the show, and no one seems to know where the close-up photo of it came from -- or even whether that's the same badge she wears in the show. I agree, she's being treated far more seriously now, but I still don't recall anything very specific. Do we actually know who's allowing him access? Do we even know that he's being "allowed" rather than merely bluffing his way in? There are a *whole* lot of implications in this show! Isn't DI Dimmock (sp?) with him that time, though? So that one is presumably an official access. I'm a bit irked that they gave so few details of what Molly actually did. In "Empty Hearse," Greg Lestrade says (regarding Sherlock's death) "Molly Hooper laid him out," which I am told means she performed a post-mortem exam, and presumably signed the death certificate. And there was some talk of her procuring that body (which some fans say is the double that scared the little boarding-school girl in "Reichenbach" -- and Moftiss ain't arguing). I'm sure that I've already said a lot more about this issue on either the Reichenbach thread or the Empty Hearse one. Quite true! Quite possibly, but she could still be head of some sub-department, or in some relatively autonomous position, which would give her the authority to do certain things without anyone else's approval. If that's what floats her boat, sure. But what if it's not -- what if she actually enjoys doing autopsies and such, and doesn't *want* to be the big boss? I know a lot of engineers like that -- they don't want to be managers, because then they'd never get to have any fun. Well, that's Sherlock's view of her, true. But how well does he understand Molly? Pretty well in some ways, I think, but probably not in certain other ways. And how much of that apparent ambition was simply a desire to be respected as a professional?

    My deduction is, you don't have to worry that your dog would take over the world or try to replace your status in the house, because she is careless not to put them back into place in order not to alarm you. On the other hand, if you have cats, oh dear, he/she obviously trying to frame the poor dog. However, for those who have deerstalker and everytime you go home it's unmoved, you better be worried. Cosplaying is for everydog, it is known. Only the sneaky ones that are up to no good would put it back neatly.
