So last night, I was sitting in front of my computer and a shoebox full of nail polish, trying to decide what I wanted to do with my nails. And then my Twitter feed exploded with the news that Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor who plays Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock, had landed the role of the main villain in the next Star Trek movie.
So, of course, I did what any self-respecting fan of Sherlock and Star Trek would do: flailed about wildly for a moment, then got down to business with a celebratory manicure.
Clearly, if I have an injury to my hand this week, it will be the index finger that will suffer the most. Redshirt!
