it still makes me laugh.

Holmes: Mambo, mamba. What's the difference?
Watson: Well, very little, except that one is a deadly, poisonous snake, while the other is a rather festive Carribean dance.

Now *this* is just the sort of thing I'll keep tucked away in my head. You just never know when a good chuckle is going to be needed!

Oh, gosh, that's got to be "The Speckled Band"! Well, sounds like it anyway. Which set was it, Rathbone & Bruce, Jeremy Brett and I can't remember the name to save my neck, or the one by Hammer with Cushing, or the brand new version, last I saw, Rupert Everett with the guy who played the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher in the 1st Harry Potter movie, I THINK.

I read everything of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's that I could get my hands on multiple times when I was a teenager. His relationship with Houdini and the fact that he and Lady Jean were Spiritualists struck me real strange when I read about it.

Kes,
trivial to the last

It's "Without a Clue", starring Michael Cain as a washed-up actor playing Holmes to Ben Kingsly's brilliant Dr. Watson. Well worth a look if you've never seen it.

And if it weren't for trivial, I'd have no life at all.
