Celebrity Crush (and Happy 38th Birthday): Benedict Cumberbatch

I have to admit that the first time I saw a picture of Sherlock‘s Benny I didn’t see what the big whoop was about… But then I watched the series and now I see it. I don’t even have to see it, I only have to listen his voice and goddammit, he has the most gorgeous voice! Am I crazy to root for Smaug in The Hobbit?! So, here it is, my third (and sometimes first) celebrity crush is Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, gorgeous man, gorgeous smile, with the sexiest voice ever, who acts like an adorkable 5 year old! Happy B-day!

I don’t live beyond my means. I enjoy luxury and I enjoy the privilege of it, when I can afford it, and I’m in the situation where it’s been given to me, but I’m very conscious of what is wasteful.

I’ve always had an eye on longevity; I’ve got loads more goals to achieve. It’s not like I’ve completely conquered the whole thing. That’s a lifetime’s objective, not an overnight thing.

It’s the blessing of having a weird face – somewhere between an otter and something people find vaguely attractive.

City of Ashes: fav quote #10


I much prefer the witty, sarcastic Jace, but I have to admit that this totally stole my breath away… if it wasn’t for the fact that a minute after he told her that he just wanted to be a brother to her… oh Jace!

“I swear, I almost died back there on that ship, you know.”

He let her hand go, but he was staring at her, almost as if he meant to memorize her face. ” I know,” he said. “everytime you almost die, I almost die myself.”
