My new flatmate

So, last night I went to look at the flat. It's pretty decent actually. Sherlock had already moved in so it was a bit of a mess but that 's actually a nice change from where I was before.

And the madman himself? He's fascinating. Arrogant, imperious, pompous. He's not safe, I know that much. I'm not going to be bored and I doubt we're going to be arguing about whose turn it is to pay the gas bill or what we're going to watch on the telly. And yeah, he is probably most likely definitely mad. But, he knows a couple of nice restaurants so he's not all bad.

So yes, we had a quick look at the flat and chatted to the landlady. Then the police came and asked Sherlock to look at a body so we went along to a crime scene, then we chased through the streets of London after a killer and Sherlock solved the serial suicides/murder thing.

And then we went to this great Chinese restaurant where my fortune cookie said 'There is nothing new under the sun. It has all been done before. ' After the night I'd had, I beg to differ.

Didn't realise you were keeping a blog, John. I wouldn't have thought you were the type. And as for what happened with Sherlock, it doesn't surprise me one bit. Good luck, mate.

What you on about? I saw something on the news. Was that you?!

Bill Murray 31 January 14:12

Seriously, John! What's going on?? Are you all right?!

Harry Watson 31 January 14:16

Sorry, no need to panic. I'm fine. Better than fine. I'll write up what happened but I want to do it properly. Give me a couple of days.

John Watson 31 January 16:12

Harry Watson 31 January 16:15
