Fandom encounter in real life
Sharing this because I desperately need to make myself (and a few other people maybe?) giggle.

So I went to a Chinese restaurant to pick up a little takeout the other day, year of the Dragon and all, and since that was the first time I'd been to an actual Chinese restaurant since I started watching Sherlock, I was thinking as I approached the place, "Oh I'll have to make sure to look at the bottom third of the door handle to see if it's a good restaurant, just like Sherlock does, har har har."

So I get to the front door.

There is a rubber band wrapped around the bottom third of the door handle.

Not serving any purpose, just hanging out on the door handle in the bottom thirdish region.

Me: *stops dead, blinks* "...but, but, what does that mean?!??" O.o

Other customers: *edging away*

(In retrospect, I think it was probably a commentary on the state of the chow mein. XD)

Dude... I've found a "Moriarty was real" flier on the street and I'VE BEEN WAITING TO SQUEE ABOUT IT ever since! It had little "I believe" tags... Obviously I took one ;-DDD

Fliers and buttons are cool.

Not clever so much as obsession.

Ok that's it, next time I am casing the usual Chinese joint;)

It was a very bizarre moment.

Oh Gawd, this makes me smile. :D

The other day my friend said something about Mercuary, and how it can kill you if there's huge amounts, and I grinned and went 'Neat'.

Everyone just stared at me. :/ I felt alone in my fan-ness.

Yeah, people tend to misunderstand things like that. XD

omyg!!!

This is like a Sherlockian puzzle come to life!

Do you think a sekrit fellow fangirl put the rubberband there? (You know, I thought of this stupid doorhandle thing several times over the past few days? Perhaps because it's Chinese New Year and there are banners everywhere.)

I'm planning a visit to Speedy's and can't help thinking that I might run into hordes of furtive doorhandle checkers there, hahahahha.

o god what has become of us

*envies you for being in visiting range of Speedy's* I've gone on Google street view 'walking tours' of the area so often, it's sad really. XD

o god what has become of us

Something wonderful, I think. :-)

It's fun! Lately I've been getting a high view of London, dropping the little street view guy in a random location, and trying to figure out how to get to either Speedy's or the Sherlock Museum at 221b Baker.

o my god you are playing The Chase from 1x01 with little street view guy.

!!!!111!

*is seriously impressed by your fandom credentials*

Nothing that organized. Also, street view doesn't include rooftops. XD
lobelia321 From: lobelia321 Date: January 28th, 2012 10:13 am (UTC) (Link)
omg if we could stalk The Rooftop. Surely, google satellite view might reveal it?? Where in heck was that filmed? Do we know? (Wales???)

This reminds me of being in college and writing Bad Wolf on random walls.

Graffiti's a bit much, unless it was chalk.
seergirl From: seergirl Date: January 28th, 2012 02:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
A shocking number of restaurants in the town where I went to college had a "right on our walls please!" policy. I can think 4 off the top of my head, and I'm sure there there were more. It was sort of a weird liberal hippy kinda place in retrospect. The rest of the time it was chalk, I promise (one of the up sides of being an art student for two years, you always have chalk or charcoal on you somewhere)
