it's a rather random sort of day.

I went to the grocery store this morning, and as I left I stopped to hold the door for an elderly woman who was coming in. She was walking pretty quickly despite the cane she carried - or not so much quickly, I suppose, but with a sort of ease and intensity of purpose that resembled speed. She had white, short-cropped hair and wore a striped sweater beneath her open coat, and when she walked past she gave me an absent-minded, what-a-nice-young-person smile, polite despite the fact that she was obviously distracted by her thoughts.

And as I smiled back I realized that I'd just seen what Martin Freeman's John Watson would look like as an awesome little old lady.

I hope she didn't have too much trouble with the chip-and-pin machine automatic checkout.

THE ANONYMOUS WRITING FEEDBACK MEME  
Feed the ego-beast, or better yet - tame it with some concrit. Or just plain ol' crit. Whatever floats, so to speak, your boat. My thread is here.

That's hilarious. And somewhere, body-swapping fic is already being written.

Holy hell, my ego is too fragile for that meme. Although I'd be happy with concrit, as I think it makes writing better (and writing in a vacuum can be very, very bad), I would be crushed if some anon troll trashed me, because I'm totally afraid it would be too true. You are a brave, brave person, although frankly, have little to fear.
