If I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me...

"I think the word bromance is so passe. We are two men who happen to be roommates who wrestle a lot and share a bed." - Robert Downey Jnr on Holmes and Watson, MyPark Magazine

Ah, bless (though he later recants). I just know I'm going to be horribly disappointed, but I can't help but be curious about this film. Especially as a lifelong Holmes/Watson fan (no don't ask me to choose, because as a lass I wouldn't be shifted from Rathbone until Mr Brett, but I've yet to be swayed from Mr Brett by later intrepretations, though I preferred Everett to Roxburgh).

Meanwhile, work has been hell. I've not slept or eaten and it has sent me grey, but enough of that.
