The murder of Sherlock Holmes

Check out those shadows! Amazing. My other option was taking pictures in front of my neighbours' children, which would have been awkward on many, many levels. I like to think the shadows give a chiseled look. Right?

Speaking of creepy shadows, you know who I love? Angela Lansbury. When I was little, my grandmother and I would watch an afternoon of amazing tv, combining Gilligan's Island, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, Magnum PI, Matlock (yeah, you remember Matlock) and it would all wrap up with an amazing hour of Murder, She Wrote. I was five when my grandmother died so I'm pretty sure I'm embellishing a little but I remember being a huge fan of Jessica Fletcher and her typewriter and all her awesome outfits, including that sweet red raincoat she had. Remember when she rode her bike everywhere? And Grady, her funny but troublesome nephew? Also we had the same first name, so I couldn't not want to be Jessica Fletcher when I grew up.

And now I work in a library (books! I think we even have some by Jessica Fletcher) and solve mysteries like The Case of the Missing Book and The Missing Library Card. Sometimes when I figure out a movie a patron wants based on a description of the plot (there's a boat with slaves on it...) I start humming the Murder, She Wrote theme song. I'm a modern day Jessica Fletcher. Man how cool am I? Right?

  3. THERE you are! I was going to email you this morning if there wasn't a post. I was like, "either she's been naked for 2 days or she's sick."

  4. Here I am! I have an outfit from Tuesday but I ended up getting home veeeeeeery late and didn't post it. I think I'd post even if I were sick because I'm either that stupid or that dedicated.
