I have moved from slight fascination to full on obsession this weekend. For those that may not know, I have been an avid Sherlock Holmes reader for quite some time now. I have read all the originals more than once and a fair view of the pastiches. I have watched most the shows and movies that have been made about the consulting detective. See the start of an obsession there. Well...

This weekend I attended a Sherlock Holmes study group. Yep, I made the leap from fan to geeky obsession. But you know what I loved it. I got to sit around for a few hours with nothing more pressing than to chat about a topic I love. It was great fun.
So much fun, that I think I will continue and even maybe join in for the Sherlock Holmes birthday party next month.
