After my impromptu jaunt to Dublin, I hopped back over to London for one final weekend to take part in the Sherlock Holmes Anniversary Meetup (SHAM for short,) commemorating the first meeting of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson on January 29th, 1881. This year, the meetup was held on the previous weekend and began Saturday morning with my second London Walking Tour, a specially booked Sherlock…
SHAM was so fun and I am STILL FLOORED that it happened while I was there! I had already booked my trip before they announced it, so I assumed it’d be later. There were so many awesome people and we played that forehead name game SO MANY TIMES.

imagine if people were born with traits based on their zodiac signs so like aries had ram horns and hoofs like a satyr and shit how rad would that be
i would be a giant fucking crab
At least you’d be alive, I’m a fucking scale.
strangereverywhere said: how can you get annoyed at someone for how tall they are? LOL
IDK, man. People get annoyed over everything and I know I’m no exception.
flowerduck said: I’m 5’3 and I get called a halfling pretty regularly, even by people my height exactly. I think having a small frame and short legs adds to the shortness/smallness perception more than actual height does.
YES, the being called short by tall people is easily ignored because their faces are way up away from me, but it’s the people who are also short that call me short or put their fucking elbows on my shoulder or head that make me want to nut-punch!
a-very-important-dwarf said: Same here!! I have but an inch more height than you and I have heard the same things! Well, we are perfect dwarf-size, actually very tall for dwarves. Everyone else is just too big!
Yes, we’ll just be tall dwarves and short any other costumes and we’ll wear steel toe boots for the stomping and kicking because we are tough little motherfuckers
Really? No fair, dude!
I was even once accused of “acting tall” by someone that was actually very annoyed at my actual height.
But seriously, this is the main thing I hear. At cons, people call me “Tiny [insert character I’m dressed as]” or they tell me I should be a hobbit because I’m the right size. Excuse them, Bilbo is 4’2” and even Dwalin the tallest dwarf of Thorin’s company is 4’11” and I am 5’2”. Rude.
Even in daily like I am told I’m short or small or confused for a kid at least twice a day. Why do people tell someone they’re short as if they are doing a good deed? Really, it just gives me more of a Napoleon Complex and makes me want to kick asses.
