Re: SocksBatch!

If I see a picture of him wearing one of my pairs I'm going to frame it

Not even joking.

Re: SocksBatch!

I see us, girls ... in the Benedict picture thread ... "Yeah, nice face ... but what socks does he wear?" LOL

Re: SocksBatch!

So.... on the off-chance that I'll briefly get to speak to Benedict tomorrow, would you want me to ask if he's received the socks by now?

Re: SocksBatch!

Hmh, to be honest, personally I would find it a bit pushy to ask, if my socks were involved.

Re: SocksBatch!

If you can find a way to ask him in a non-confrontational, non-fan-crazy way. XD

Re: SocksBatch!

I am dying to know, but I'm not sure... like Polar said, if you can find a non-scary-crazy way...

Re: SocksBatch!

I can't speak for the rest of us here because I didnt send him the socks (they're still with me but I didn't send it because they are waaaay too small), but if you do get the chance to meet him, just treasure the experience, chat with him as much as you can, socks or no. It's a once in a lifetime experience, make the most out of it! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
 All the best hon!

Re: SocksBatch!

Yeah, I'm a bit unsure about this, and I certainly don't want it to be in any kind of "fan crazy" way. The way I would go about it is to be a little more clandestine and ask something like, "Say, if I said the word 'socks', would that ring any kind of bell?" And if he said no, I would probably leave it at that, or perhaps just say he should check with his London agency for the latest batch of fanmail.

How come you're getting to speak to him then TeeJay? When/where is he going to be?

Re: SocksBatch!

I just read the whole thread and I have to say it - you are crazy and I adore you! It was a wonderful (yet reaally crazy) idea to send him colourful socks and I wish I read about it earlier, I'd have joined! Your socks were beautiful and they were so beautifully wrapped. (I'm definately going to do "the shirt one" someday!) I hope Benedict got all of them.

Finally I know why some people are so obsessed about his socks!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: SocksBatch!

I just went through this thread and am just about dying from laughter. You guys are nuts! I could swear I read or watched an interview once where he talked about still having socks and underwear with his name on them from when he went to boarding school because he doesn't know where grown ups go to buy that sort of thing. I hope I didn't dream that and that someone knows the interview of which I speak, otherwise I may have to check myself into Sherlock's mind palace padded room.

(PS I like to wear knee high socks with my shorter skirts and my blog readers got together a while back and did something similar to this campaign. Which is how I wound up with socks that look like Big Bird's legs...)


John: That's clever. So you scratch their backs and...
Sherlock: Yes. And then disinfect myself.

I don't what the heck is wrong with me; I read that and felt like crying!!! Surely to goodness someone in his life could have pointed him in the right direction!!
Ah well, he'll have no shortage now!
