I've Been Addicted to Benedict (See what I did there?)

For starters, I am so incredibly Sherlocked it is not even funny. It's one of those fan-girl obsessions where I'm like, "Benedict Cumberbatch will bear my children." I mean, he's 35, so it's not like I am seriously considering accepting pedophilia as a valid marriage option, but still. Benedict Cumberbatch in his Purple Shirt of Sex. Yeah.


While on the subject of Cumberbatch, I have to suggest a movie of his which has now become one of my favorites. It's called Hawking and you can find it on youtube in six parts. He plays Stephen Hawking in his early stages of motor neurone disease. At first, I really only wanted to watch the movie because of Cumberbatch, but as it progressed I found myself completely in love with the movie. He was absolutely amazing in it, and I nearly cried throughout the entire thing. It gave me new insight on Stephen Hawking, and certainly a new-found respect. Plus, Benedict Cumberbatch looks great in glasses.


So is anyone else completely Sherlocked? If not, I strongly suggest you watch Sherlock now. Right now.


On an unrelated note, this summer I'm going to visit my sister in Chicago. I've been once before, but since I just finished Will Grayson, Will Grayson, I want to go again so I can finally see the Bean. My mom and my sister have gone, so now it's my turn! :)


Has anyone been to Chicago before? Any suggestions of where to visit while there?

No, it's not too late, thank you for the suggestions. :)

I really want to visit the field museum. Maybe if I try hard enough I can convince my sister to take me... xD

It my be too late but I live about 40 minutes away from Chicago and I visit on my holidays. I usually take someone with me and we visit the Willis Tower (formally know as Sears Tower), The
field museum, and other museums. It may not be your style, but those are the things I take most relatives to see.
