Where are you actually from if your work experience is in Manchester?
Oh, I’m from Bristol! But it was a really good chance to see what it would be like in the field I’m interested in, and seeing as university applications rely so heavily on work experience, my mum said we could come up and stay in a hotel for a week so I could do it ;D
I’m sorry, what? Is this in relation to the Moffat interview/asexual comment?
Okay. Anon, I’m guessing you know what an asexual is, right? If you don’t; ‘asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others or the lack of interest in sex’. People who are asexual can be romantic/aromantic/etc etc, which means that they can still want to be involved in relationships, just without the sexual side of things, or they may not want this at all, and choose to never engage in a relationship, sexual or otherwise.
Now, I’m not saying necessarily that Sherlock is asexual, I’m saying there is the possibility that he could be. Whether this is because he is uninterested in sex because he doesn’t like the idea of it, or whether it’s because he is more interested in solving cases/the inner workings of his own mind/whatever else, and he doesn’t like boring things, and sex just happens to be something that falls into the category of ‘boring’, it could be a valid reason as to why Sherlock has never had sex.
Of course, everything is purely speculation, seeing as in the time that Sherlock Holmes was written, it was very rare to see an author write about someone who was asexual or homosexual, especially openly, seeing as people were convicted and even executed for being homosexual. So, when people say that Sherlock was asexual, or homosexual, it’s because he seems to show no interest in women in that way in the books, and so it’s more by deduction than anything.
So it is in fact quite possible that Sherlock never had sex.
So I have to do something with Publisher for school, plus it was just inconveniencing me not having Microsoft Office. So I went up to our ICT teacher at school and I was like “Um, where can I download Office online?” because I’ve tried a few links before and they’ve all been shit.
And so he just goes “Oh well obviously you can pay for it…or there’re ways you can do it and not pay. But obviously I can’t support you doing that. But do that.”
So basically he just told me to download it illegally. And he also told me to go and find him tomorrow and tell him how it went.
But I just found a torrent and now I have Microsoft Professional 2010 and I’m so proud of myself so I can go and tell him that I managed to torrent it despite the fact that over half the download websites have gone down today. I feel very proud.
