hasui snow scene


1. Snow is for the young. It makes my feet hurt, my ankles hurt, my knees scream, and for some reason gives me cramps on the inside of my thighs the way nothing has done since riding a horse when I was 11. And I walked in it all today and all yesterday, and will be walking in it for quite some time to come. The only good thing about snow is being able to shovel it away. And I can't do that because a very little careful cleaning makes my neck nerves twinge warningly. So I shall be sliding over many people's churned-up slush as well.

2. The BBC Sherlock is marvellous for taking me Elsewhere. I have no idea why this should be so. I'm a little discomfited that it's also made the original impossible to read. Maybe the taste for Holmes will come back when the taste of Cumberbatch has left my brain.
