Blogiversary! and Gratuitous Benedict Cumberbatch blogging

This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for the last fortnight hoping for a stroke of brilliance to strike so that I could post something suitably amusing and symbolic of the last 5 years of blogging. Thanks so much to all of you who continue to drop by here to read and comment.

Alas, the only thing that has struck me has been the ‘flu. So I am calling upon Benedict Cumberbatch for comfort.

Also? I am most impatient for Sherlock to reach Aussie screens.

  1. Happy blogiversary! Five years, such a long time in the intertubes. Thank you to you and to Lauredhel and all the awesome guest hoydens for your fabulous contributions to the femmosphere over the past half decade.

  2. Happy blogiversary to you!

  3. Happy Blogiversary to you and Lauredhel. Although some of us have contributed wee amounts, (amounts of wee? Oh grow up, Helen) it is Lauredhel’s and your efforts which have made this the standout feminist resource it is. I am always in awe of your sheer knowledge. *Raises glass* (No, really, I am literally raising a champers to you as I brought home a half-bottle left over from our school fundraising booze sales at the annual musical)

  4. I’m raising the last of my cleanskin savvy blanc to you. Congratulations!

  5. Happy blogiversary! Congratulations and many, many thanks to all the Hoyden bloggers!

  6. Happy blogiversary and thank you; the presence of your blog makes the internet so much better! Congrats on the 5(!) years.

  7. Happy Blogiversary!
    I fear you may find Sherlock less awesome that it should have been. I look forward to reading your reactions.

  8. Thank you for all the important things your five years of work has given me.
    Have you noticed that The Last Enemy is to this decade what Floodtide was to the 90s and Edge of Darkness was to the 80s? The British do one per decade. (Ok, just having flashbacks to perhaps having said that before. Was there a previous Cumberbatch thread where I pitched the same line?)

    • Thanks for the wellwishing, everyone!
      The Last Enemy was fabulous watching indeed, Orlando. We may have had this conversation at your farewell picnic?

    Happy blogiversary!

  10. Happy Blogiversary!
    You have so rekindled my personal relationship with feminist philosophy. I’ve learned a lot and refined much of my own opinions since I discovered you 3 years ago. The dialogue and debates I have with my young daughter, who at 16 also reads many of your articles, and with my 2 young adult sons I think have helped me with parenting 3 pretty awesome young people. Not that I’m biased in the least bit of course.
    Thank you for this wonderful Blog. It is my favourite, I check up on you daily.

  11. Congratulations, tigtog and Lauredhel! You do a remarkable job, and I am always in awe of what you have managed to create here. An astonishing community!
    I am raising a… brandy and dry. Not my regular drink, but I’m trying to remember what they taste like, so here goes…!

  12. Raising my, er, dried mango?! to you on this occasion!

  13. Happy Blogiversary. I’m raising my cup of herbal respiratory tea to you for blogging through your flu from hell. I lay on the lounge, gave lots of orders and read lots of (bad) books about vampires. And coughed up a lung or two (at least that’s how it felt).

  14. I managed to catch up with 2 episodes of Sherlock on the plane (we landed 5 minutes before the end of the 3rd – damn you, tailwinds!).
    I enjoyed what I saw so far. I like the conceit of presenting Holmes as an entirely new character as if the Conan Doyle books had never been written, and just updating the stories for the realities of the 3rd millennium. It’s working for me.
