suspicious activity

 

are you watching the new bbc sherlock series? it's on netflix instant watch.  excellent MLK day activity.  though really it doesn't have much to do with the day.


unless you consider knocking off this african print mini skirt a celebratory act?  my young nephew celebrates by eating cupcakes and coloring pictures, so i'm pretty sure i've got him beat in this very questionable contest.  i like to win, especially over small children.  

(ps: a TBP favorite.  again, apologies to do the math peeps that may have found their way here.  my knowledge of jazz is most certainly suspect, though my admiration for MLK is much greater than this post would lead you to believe.  if you care to hang out, we'll sew and drink and swear together.)

  1. The kiddos are home from school today but I have to work. (boo) They're very excited about MLK Day, although that might be mostly because their celebrations will chiefly consist of sitting in front of Netflix watching bad Australian TV and eating junk food.

    Um.

    Which isn't such a bad way to celebrate anything, I guess.

    (When I asked TLo why MLK was important, she said "Because he said people should be nice to each other... And he gave a famous speech! I know what it was called! I know what it was called! It was called 'There is a Dream'."

    OK. Close enough.

  2. Dude, I love the series Sherlock. It's so well done. I didn't know it was on Netflix Instant, though, so I mayyyy have to rethink my canceled membership. Happy MLK Jr. day!

  3. Ooo, I may have to try and turn the hubs onto this (and for once it's on our Netflix too!)

    Beangirl, are your kids watching the mermaid one? I swear I can't pry Syo away from the computer, and Tyo's only done with it because she's watched every single episode. I dunno, I can't help but feel they could've done better with Australian mermaids...

    I am celebrating my first real (i.e. bedridden) cold of the winter. Joy.

  4. Yay. I loved the first two and just noticed the new series. We are desperate for new shows to cuddle around, since it appears that Fringe could run to its demise this year.

  6. Oooh thanks for the TV recco. We just got a boxee box and a whole new world of shows has opened up to us and we don't know where to start. Well actually we have made a start, with Downton Abbey, whole first series in two nights. Have you seen The Hour? Also from the Beeb and soooooooo good.

    Happy MLK day! We've got Australia Day holiday next week, probably no sewing but that's for the best because to be thematically correct I'd have to sew something green and gold... eugh. So best get stuck into some beer drinking!

  8. I've got Sherlock on my to watch list. Who can say no to some British crime tv? Anyone?!

  9. Oona, if you like Sherlock, you are going to enjoy Downton Abbey. I am spending my MLK Day at work. :-(

    But when I get home, I plan to make some collar greens, watch some Downton Abbey and a do little bit of sewing.

  10. Gah, I can't wait for the second season to air here in the US of A! Seriously, O, you gotta get on this Downton Abbey wagon-- it's MIND BLOWING (and I don't usually watch Brit costume drama type stuff... no attention span for manners and long courtships)!

    And really... shouldn't every holiday be celebrated by eating cupcakes and drawing pictures?

  11. I really want to get in on this show! We just finished watching some BBC Sherlock series from the 70's or 80's on Netflix (it was so bad it was good) and I've been craving some more sleuthing....

  12. I loved BBC Sherlock! But we cancelled Netflix and its not free with the Amazon Prime (yet -- hopefully). Luckily, the early seasons of the newest Dr. Who are free with Amazon Prime, and sewing seems a good way to celebrate any holiday.

  14. What did I say about watching less Netflix? Damn. DA is fab - like gingermakes, I don't usually do the whole Brit period thing, but it's brillz. Oh, and watch Peep Show. I die laughing.

  15. OH SHERLOCK! Benedict Cumberbatch may have the best name ever. Just finished Season 2 and I was like OMGWOWMINDBLOWN. So yes. Excellent show. And I must have seen the entire season 2 of Downton Abbey eight times by now. Rob would like to watch something else, I am sure, but the costumes are sooooooooo pretty.

  16. I really need to see what all of these shows are about. Too much work and not enough fun around here these days. Unless you count sewing. My machine has been on fire lately.

  17. I was going to be all defensive about Australian TV but couldn't think of any shows to defend. Damn.
