The Saddest Catching Up with Cumberbatch

It was inevitable, I suppose.  On Valentine’s Day, my A-One, First Round Draft Pick Valentine, Benedict Cumberbatch married a by all accounts lovely person, Sophie Hunter.

This is me now.

Below are the few pictures that have come out thus far.  Apparently the church is a part of her family’s ancestral lands.  Go ahead, look. I’m going to go mutter in a corner for a while.

How lovely and British!

    Met a friend of his last week who genuinely referred to him as “Benny”, so that’s what your nickname for him would have been, had you married him.

    Seriously though, Valentine’s Day wedding? I had credited him with less schmaltz.

      God…what could have been!!

    • catweazle says:

      The Valentine’s Day thing is suuuuuper cheesy but I can’t decide if it’s barf-inducing cheesy or endearing-cheesy.

      • gnidrah says:

        At least this way he’ll never forget his anniversary! 😉

        • I feel like the fact that she is pregnant gives him some leeway for that since they were probably on a tight timeframe and wanted to have the wedding before the kid.

          If you have to have a winter wedding, seems like your best options are Christmastime, New Years, or Valentine’s Day. Otherwise, you should wait until at least the spring so the setting isn’t so bleak.

        • gnidrah says:

          Pah, they could do what my (heavily pregnant) (Greek Orthodox) cousin did, and hide your bump behind priests/altars etc, then change the date on all the photos so your resulting daughter doesn’t find out… 😉

    She has ancestral lands? Not even you can compete with that, artdork.

    I wish that I could say that something was part of my “ancestral lands.”

    • artdorkgirl says:

      So, in Lafayette there’s a state park dedicated to Louisianan and Acadian history and our family’s homestead was purchased and relocated to the park. I guess it’s not as cool as having a huge county or something though.

      • taoreader says:

        Pretty cool if you ask me. Clearly Cumby is an anti-American jerk.

      • Marlasinger says:

        I found out recently that my grandmother gifted us some land in Lovelock, NV. Who does that qualify me for? Billy Bob Thornton? Whoever Jesse Pinkman is loosely based on, perhaps? One of the Coen brothers (I wish)?

    At least we still have Hiddles. HIDDLES NEVER GET MARRIED UNLESS IT IS TO ME.

    I have no huge tracts of land nor do I have any noble titles but I do have a 1 bed/1bath apartment and a sparkling personality. MARRY ME.

    • If that lady was Hiddleston’s date then I think we all have a fighting chance!

      No offense to that lady, it is probably just a terribly awkward face she is making, but also she is not a super model so it gives us all hope.

      • artdorkgirl says:

        I swear as soon as I saw her, I thought of Copley paintings…

      • Erika says:

        I think Hiddles could do better, but of course he’s also required to choose someone who’s somewhat more relatable (similar to Sophie Hunter).

        And the only other woman I’ve seen him out and about with looked rather peeved with how gregarious he is with press and fans instead of paying attention to her.

    Speaking of Andrew Scott, I always do a double take when I see his name because the Andrew Scott I was most familiar with prior to Sherlock was Andrew Scott from Sloan who is probably the #1 hottest man I have ever been in the same room with in my life.

  6. I really love that for the bride photo you can tell that the pap was straight up hiding in some bushes.

    Pardon my French, but who the hell is that hussy with Hiddles!!!!
