The Calm Before the Storm

#3 -- "The Complete Sherlock Holmes, volume 1" by Arthur Conan Doyle

I haven't read ol' Sherlock since I was a kid, and this was really ripping good fun. I dragged it out after encouraging my friend the recent London transplant to read it. Good stuff, and apt on our recent miserable rainy days.

And it was a needed easy warmup before the big task: "Against the Day" is next. I'm reading it in conjunction with a friend (under the theory that the buddy system will drive us forward). Should be interesting.

"Uncorking the bottle of regret."

The classic tag line. Much as I liked the Kloucek one, you can't go wrong with the classics.

You always return to your first love, I guess. I'd always feel something lacking with "uncorking" gone...

Me and my squaw sort of accidentally started watching an old Sherlock Holmes movie last month...and totally loved it. It was pretty witty!
