Have you watched Sherlock Holmes? The updated series by BBC? I finally gave it a try via Netflix and quite liked it. And yes that is the Hobbit playing the part of John Watson.
- I'm Sherlock Holmes, the world's only consulting detective.
I'm not going to go into detail about how I do what I do because chances are you wouldn't understand. If you've got a problem that you want me to solve, then contact me. Interesting cases only please.
This is what I do:
- 1. I observe everything.
- 2. From what I observe, I deduce everything.
- 3. When I've eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how mad it might seem, must be the truth.
So today I give you my version …what would Sherlock say?
Shut up everybody, shut up! Don't move, don't speak, don't breathe, I'm trying to think.
You there, face the other way, you're putting me off. And don't talk out loud. You lower the IQ of the whole street.
Dear God. What is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.
Blue fedora worn, but not over worn. No sweat or dirt around the inside band. This isn't the only hat this woman wears. She probably has a large closet and collects hats.
Brown leather overcoat, unlike her hat, very well worn. Purchased at full price. She has worn this piece so as to get her money's worth out of it.
Sunglasses are cheap no name brand.
Upper middle income family, no kids.
Kleenex and lip balm in one pocket. She suffers from allergies and dry lips. Probably lives somewhere very dry and cold at this time of year.
Gold capped teeth with flat molars. She grinds her teeth at night and has a fear of dentists.
Type A personality. They are the biggest grinders.
Why does she have a fear of dentists?
Who doesn't dear Watson?
Hat – Gap, Boots – Thrifted, Belt – Thrifted, Jeans – Garage, Sweater – Old Tommy Hilfiger
Wedding band but no wedding ring. Got married at a young age unable to afford an engagement ring at the time and never bothered to buy one. She doesn't deem it necessary now. Unconventional. Doesn't follow the crowd.
Ring is very well worn, never cleaned. She never takes it off. Probably been married for over 20 years looking at the indent on her finger and the white line on her hand.
Belt has been altered to fit her. Boots are slightly too large. Both are probably a gift from a friend or bought at a charity shop. She supports environmental issues.
Dressed stylishly enough. Not high end, but not low end either. Takes care with her appearance despite her years. Hair colour is high maintenance. Works in an area where outward appearance is important.
Her clothes have been chosen with a definite visual style in mind. She is creative. Probably an artist.
No nail polish or manicure. An artist that works with her hands.
White hair on the lower part of her jeans. She owns a dog. A small dog.
More dog hair on her lap and sweater. The dog is demanding, always by her side.
She owns a pug.
Or rather the pug owns her.
Isn't it obvious John (Mr. Watson)?
The party we are looking for is a guilty pug.
Watson: We solve crimes. I blog about it, and he forgets his pants. I wouldn't hold out too much hope.
Sherlock: Put that in your blog – or better still, stop inflicting your opinions on the world!
What would Sherlock say about you?
Tamera the Menopausel Supermodel says
OMG I LOVE this post!!! HUGE “new” Sherlock fan!!! Benedict Cumberbatch-YUM. altho I wouldn’t throw Watson out the bed!!
Alison @ Get Your Pretty On says
I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this post and laughed out loud at the guilty pug ending. You’re such a creative, but you already know that. I admire people like you.
The Style Crone says
Your are very clever; I think you could write a move. Love the blue fedora and your mysterious ways.
Great post, serious Holmes fan here, I loved this!
Sue @ A Colourful Canvas says
What a fun post! I haven’t seen nor heard of this particular series and will check it out. I see ads on TV for Elementary with Lucy Liu, but I haven’t seen that either.
The Goodwill Fangirl says
I’ve been insane for this series since it first made it to the U.S. Oh, man, does Benedict Cumberbatch float ma boat 😛
Love the outfit, love the analysis. Awesome post. The pug definitely did it. The pug should avoid poker.
That’s not the hobbit, that’s Tim from The Office – the sanity to Ricky Gervais’s mad boss! I can’t get into Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch’s face just freaks me out, I don’t get why he’s seen as a sex symbol to ladies of a certain age!
You, on the other hand, are fabulous, gorgeous and way more stylish. x
Here he is in all his hobbit gear/feet/ glory…
As soon as I saw him on Sherlock I thought, “it’s the Hobbit!”
I had no idea he also played in the British version of The Office.
I am in total agreement that Benedict is super unattractive. He is smart and witty which makes me keep watching though. But sexy??? um definately NOT for me.
Let’s talk Michael Fassbender or Jonathan Rys Meyers (did you watch the Turdors?)
Much better options : )
He would say rebel beyond repair!
Haha- I love this series and feel you got that style of it well. Also digging the coat and fedora.
Aya in Couturgatory says
I enjoy Sherlock very much! Sometimes the writers get kinda clever-little-me but overall I dig the production values and, of course, the acting. Martin Freeman has a way of making us fall in love with the everyman, don’t you think?
I *love* this format! It’s so incredibly creative and observant a great way of telling things about yourself. My friend Mo says, “Don’t trust a woman without scars or calluses on her hands. It means she does not love her art.” (I assume bumps elsewhere for things like dance would do just fine. (; )
Sage Grayson says
Hee hee! This post made me smile. I only have a wedding band too, same reason. So unconventional of us. 😉 Sherlock would say I have a demanding snuggle puppy seeing as I’m covered head to toe in dog hair at all times.
Happiness at Mid Life says
Funny post! I may have to add this my Netflix queue. What would Sherlock Holmes say about me….way to happy and too positive.
You crack me up! Love this outfit and that coat is absolutely amazing. I think my favorite part of the post are the pug eyes…he’s saying I’m guilty, but so what. Pick me up and cuddle me!
two birds says
i love this post!!! so creative. and the outfit is pretty amazing, too!
This was just the chuckle I needed to start Friday. This outfit is so well put together but you manage to make it look like you didn’t even try! The hat is sweet and your pug is contemplative:)
No Fear of Fashion says
This is so funny…. You did such a good job. Both with your post and your outfit. Thanks for this stylish entertainment.
Of course, since I saw Sherlock first, I’d have to say, “John Watson is the Hobbit!” And Angel seems like he’s on a mission to watch every movie that happens to involve Benedict Cumberbatch…I find that rather strange.
But this, this post, is hilarious. I was rolling on the floor. I want to do one like it! I wonder what I could deduce…
Arash Mazinani says
The BBC series of Sherlock is amazing! I’ve been hooked ever since I watched the first one and there is a series 3 coming out in the UK this christmas. Eek!
I love that quote. Writing that one down.
Can there be such a thing? Watson would argue never!
Yeah…she is just busy thinking about the next batch of mischief she can get into ; )
Glad you liked it Greetje : )
You need to do this too Rachel! I’d love to read your interpretation. Then get Angel to do one of you. I bet they’d be totally different.
Love this post! The outfit is cool. (want those boots!) But the angle you chose (Sherlock) and how you wrote is is both hilarious and very well done. Really! Kudoos for you. You can write, you have an original, creative mind and your topics are eclectic and interesting.
