A Little Gore to Brighten Your Day

Alright then, for those of you who are color blind, I am the one typing in green. For those of you blessed with perfect sight, I am the one typing in red. Happy darling? I have decided to make a sort of book thing post. I tell you what I'm reading, and you listen with bated breath. I was recently encouraged to pick up a novel of Stephen King's by my dear Freaking watson Junior. (Goblin Overlady) Due to my recent interest in the, not quite straight out horror, but the truly creepy, I have come to love Poe and making eyeballs out of clay. I decided to give Misery a try and in less than a day I have almost finished it. I love it. Annie is a psycho, but is far from stupid. She is a mastermind of her own world, meticulously charting out every obstacle that could get in the way of her perfect little world, and ruin her own sense of right. Along comes a man into her life that is the very basis of one of her obsessions, poor Paul Sheldon. He is the writer of her favorite novel series, Misery. His legs are shattered, he can't get help, and Annie's mood is as violently bipolar as my 10th grade Chemistry teacher's was. It is a battle of the minds as Paul tries to struggle his way out of this fun-house, and survive the twisted wrath of Annie who has just discovered the death of her favorite character, Misery. Now he has to write a new Misery novel for her, and live to tell the tale. Truthfully I'm in love with Annie's shattered mind, and the way King writes. She may be broken, but she hides it well. She "keeps up appearances" and dictates her own messed up reality. She is her own God in a sense, and suddenly she has enough power over one man to basically be one. I cant wait to see how it ends. 

In other news, I have just been informed by cruel family members that season 5 of Merlin had come out on Netflix some time ago. As soon as Freaking watson Junior finishes seasons 1-4 I will watch 5. You owe me for waiting for so long just so we can watch them together. 

 I also need to find fishing line so I can fix this antique necklace. I love antique stuff, but not the dust. Dust is on my extensive "List of Things I am Allergic to."

Okay, so I'm looking for Sherlock arts and crafts projects to keep me busy because I'm really I don't know bored?! (I've actually got some ideas now though.) But here is a youtube video I found that I thought I'd share.
Yes, the song from Annie Get Your Gun.

The Sponge

This is the lovely sponge HFS gave me. I also recently read The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaimen's new book. Post about that tomorrow.

Um, Hehe, Erm.....

About that last post by HFS, well... She's not going to be overtaking this blog anytime soon. Not if I can help it at least. (I WILL take your admin powers away!) However, she is the one writing in red (unless you're colorblind. DID YOU TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION HFS?! DID YOU?!) Oh well, it's easy to tell which are her posts, they'll be the haughty pretentious complicated more Sherlock-ish, if you catch my drift. (Do you?)


I mad more turnovers, they're so delicious! Better than yesterdays, I had changed the recipe. Usually I follow the one below:

2 1/2 cups flour
Shake of salt
3/4 cups shortening/butter
6-7 tablespoons water/Vodka (I'll explain in a bit)

So you cut the shortening into the flour and salt, slowly add the water vodka mix stiring as you go. (Don't over work the dough) roll it out for pies and such. (yeah it's not a detailed recipe but what the heck.)

So I do a half butter half shortening mix for flavor and flakiness. I also add the vodka because the alcohol burns off and it acts as a very good bonding agent. However, the dough then tends to get tough very quickly. So I omitted the shortening and vodka today and they turned out even better than yesterday. Simpler is just better I guess.

(And would the person(s) who found my blog via searching 'Benedict Cumberbatch' please contact me.... I want to know how the hell you did it. Because I've tried.)

Be in Awe of My Power

I, the High Functioning Sociopath, have gained new power over this blog. I have become a co-blogger, so congratulate me. I believe I owe my thanks to you, random and nameless people, who have given this blog a popularity boost. Because of your enjoyment of this blog, I have been asked to bring my online people skills to the forefront of this blog. Thank you, and I hope you continue to support my eventual takeover of the Internet. First this blog, then the Internet, then the world! I would also like to bring to your attention that anything in red should be my ramblings, while not my ramblings are in not red. To commemorate this momentous occasion I have drawn you a unicorn. His name is Chubby the Unicorn. Unfortunately, I was unable to get pictures to show up, so Chubby the Unicorn will be making his appearance sometime later.


I finally made them! The HFS and I today enjoyed in the partaking of apple /sugar/cinnamon turnovers. Homemade! HFS would like me to mention that she did indeed measure the flour for the crust of the turnovers while I did.... everything else.
Don't they look tasty?
She did actually bring her own milk. She makes me so proud! Let it rain sparkles!

A Few More Things

HFS made a brilliant quote today I'd like to share it:
"When they come prancing in followed by rainbows and unicorns while sparkles fall from the sky."
Brill eh? You'd have to know what she was actually talking about but it was damn funny.

As a matter of fact. HFS is soon to be a  co-blogger. Soon she shall wield the power of posting once she gets over here and I show her how to work blogger. (Tomorrow hopefully. I'm gonna have turnovers!) So I hope you'll stick around to see what ramblings I mean words of incredible importance she posts on here. That's all for now.

What is Wrong With This Fandom?

Cumberbitches. There I typed it. The newest fandom I am aware of. Keep your Sherlockians, your Trekkies, your Whovians, your Rebels. Women of today are Cumberbitches.

Come. On. You have got to be kidding me. Cumberbitches? Really? ANYONE could have come up with something better. ANYONE.

Okay I found a quote on this matter:
"Do any of those words make sense to you? They might, if you’re among the almost 37,000 members of “the most glorious and elusive society for the appreciation of the high cheekboned, blue eyed sexbomb that is Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch,”
This quote was in an article I read on the matter. Now I love Cumberbatch. I really do. He's right up there in my adoration spectrum I just don't fawn over him around people. Just in private while I re-watch 'A Study in Pink' for the gazillionth time. But nonetheless I could have come up with a better fandom name. Which is why HFS and I have decided to start the 'I am Sherlocked' revolution. Starting now we are on a mission to eradicate the word 'Cumberbitch' from the Earth, (hey we're ambitious.) So today ladies of the highly esteemed Goblin High Court. When you go out today or go onto twitter. Don't identify as a 'Cumberbitch' instead say 'I am Sherlocked' because that HAS to be beter somehow. (Tweeting it works too.)

This has to be better.

P.S. I found a swell name online 'Benaddicts'! It's great!

Phantom (Demon) Poodle

So as we were leaving the opera we decided to stop and grab a soda (which isn't helping the overlady's dentist induced headache.) And my mother, The Dame Margaret, saw a black poodle. Unfortunately, attempts to see the dog again proved futile and it was lost. Whether it was a phantom or demon remains unknown. (HFS wanted me to put this down.)

On Carmen:

Well I was under enthused. It really was too sexual in all. The music was great but by the end of it I was just glad they were dead. But when I say too sexual I mean it. However, done right it could have been good. The costumes and scenery were good, the voices were good, and the story line was good. The sexual dancing..... not so much. I'm sorry to report that this was what mostly caught my eye. More from HFS in comments.

-MaggieG, (Tired) Evil Goblin Overlady

P.S. Might do a better post later.

This Post Specially Dedicated To...

HFS, because when I sent these through e-mail the disintegrated into numbers and letters. These were what I was sending to you. (It was late, 3 A.M., and I was bored.)

Despite grammar errors, it's pretty accurate.

HFS! They look like the horses you draw!

Arthur: Don't worry, Merlin! There is nothing I can't defeat! Camelot is safe with me! Merlin: Err... Sure, Sire, sure. *Utters incomprehensible magic formulas* (for those of us who can't read it.)

Yeah, but Merlin's team has magic!
Like I said in 'Blech' I had entirely too much time on my hands. And well..... you like Merlin.

-MaggieG, Evil Goblin Overlady.

P.S. HFS, I'll give you lessons soon.

This is what happens when you have entirely too much time on your hands, the internet at your disposal, and you're trying to figure out how the heck some of the search terms even lead to your blog:

25 Things That Prove Benedict Cumberbatch is the Perfect Man I agree with a few....

My Happy Sewing Place It's a vintage sewing blog. I love it.

Cute Knitting Patterns I enjoy knitting occasionally, but HFS enjoys it a lot more.

I Write Like A text analyzer. Write something into it and it tell you what famous writer you're most like. (I got J.D. Salinger.)

They could be cousins. The cheekbones ahhh the cheekbones. (Benedict's cuter though.)
Wait wait wait?! When did Matt Smith end up in here. He's not anywhere near looking related.

I might not not post for a bit, I've given you about a weeks worth of posts in two days or so.

Can someone name where the boat's name is from?

Shadowfax from another angle.

More pictures of the sail boat.

Wasn't in harbor but I liked the name.

And it's the DAWN TREADER (where's the name from?)

Still the 'Treader

Isn't it pretty?

Will you do the fandango?

Also made of mostly wood, it's so pwetty.

Sea Duction

It's a glorified houseboat. No joke.
