“Each age has deemed the new-born year the fittest time for festal cheer.”

Welcome to 2010! Hello new decade! (Well done LiberryDwarf for getting off her but and quitting The Sims long enough to blog!)

I have been chilling out since Christmas doing pretty much nothing but read and game (so wonderful!) but have put together enough treats for a blog entry at last. Hope you like!

1) I did go to see Sherlock Holmes last week: and while perhaps Robert Downey Jr’s Holmes was  a bit rough around the edges for my tastes (and there were a few niggling things about Adler which annoyed me slightly) I did think Jude Law did a delightfully refreshing Watson: I think Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have been proud. And Jude Law aside, here’s why we should all love Watson

2) Another book list – this time the 20 best SF books of the (presumably last) decade. Oh dear, only 4 out of 20 – time to beef up the wishlist again!

3) This week’s video is just especially for us cat-lovers at Christmas…



  1. It’s absolutely amazing to me that a cat would let somebody do that to her. My family’s cat would have sliced her way through the paper and any limbs getting in her way within seconds.

  2. re:booklist. is Harry Potter really sci-fi? I’ve only read three from the list but I own more than half of it, which may or may not be a good thing.

    • Yeah, I thought the inclusion of HP on here was a bit suss. I know a lot of people are very strict on their “fantasy is not sci-fi” policy, and while I don’t love one and hate the other, I do agree they’re seperate, and I read them both when I’m in different moods, and for different reasons.

      BookMooch has padded my “I’ve read it” list out to 5 or 6 now… 🙂
