The Good Old Index of Questions
1. When and how did you first encounter Sherlock Holmes?
Okay, I didn't remember until I read another blogger's post. She mentioned that she had him in her reading books! And I was like, oh yeah!! I had one Sherlock Holmes story every year for four or five years!! The one that really stuck with me was the one about the snake that comes down the pole, AKA The Adventure of the Speckled Band. Good ol' Abeka! Then when I was in eighth grade, my friend bought a huge volume of all the Sherlock Holmes stories. Ashley, of course had to have that. So I do.
2. Please share a fact or two about yourself related to Holmes. (You've read the whole canon, you've been to Baker Street, you're an official BSI member, etc.)
Ummmm, no, no, and no. So let's see. A friend of mine was in a Sherlock Holmes play! It was amazing! Moriarty was awesomely creepy, there were newsies, and a sniper. So yeah, it was epic!
3. What are three of your favorite Holmes adventures?
Ummm, let me see. The Red-Headed League because it's unforgettable! The Adventure of the Speckled Band, also unforgettable. The Adventure of the Three Students, because I love how Holmes works in that one!
4. What draws you to the Sherlock Holmes stories?
Well, Holmes himself and his deductions. Sometimes I just flip through the stories reading only the deduction parts!
5. If you were going to give Sherlock Holmes a birthday present, what would it be?
Well, I've already heard tickets to a violin concert, but that's probably what he would most want!
6. If you could climb into a Holmes story and replace any one character for a day, who would you like to be?
Watson because basically you are Watson when you read the story and he gets to watch a lot of cool stuff!
7. Please share some of your favorite Holmes-related quotes!
Ummmm, sad to say I know one off the top of my head:
“As a rule, the more bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify.”
Another one I heard today:
"Crime is common, logic is rare."
