Really, what *was* Baroness O. thinking of when she left it out? At least she did mention the eyeglass-thingie that he moves around when he says it. (It's somewhere in one of the first few chapters. It took a long time to find it, but it is there.)
OMS! You're so right! WOW. I know that he does say it at some point in one of the sequels. I'm positive I read it in one of them. Argh, and now I can't think of it. But you're so right. Wow, never really thought of that before. Maria's right...what was Baroness Orczy thinking? (GREAT trivia, btw. And you should get a reward - "a TSP trivia that Alexandra actually didn't know." LOL.)
Shocking! How did I not know this? It's like knowing that Sherlock Holmes never once says, "Elementary, My dear Watson."But no "Sink Me" ???Really, I'm quite surprised Baroness Orczy forgot to out that in there.... :)
Ugh! And *I* didn't know that. Well, I guess I'm not as knowledgeable as I thought I was....Like the others said, why did Baroness Orczy leave it out?!Ashley
put. I mean put that in there! Uh...those typos...!!!
Sink me! I never noticed that! ;)How interesting...
Maria, when you said "it took a long time to find it but it's there" were you talking about the eyeglass thingy or the "sink me"? Because I scoured the book and couldn't find "sink me" ANYWHERE. Alexandra, I'm sadly ignorant about the sequels, having only read The Elusive P. and The League of the S.P. (which was rather disappointing, only a collection of short stories in which Marguerite hardly appeared) but I'm halfway through El Dorado and it. is. awesomeness. Wow, I knew a TSP trivia that you didn't??? Hayden,I know, I was so disappointed when I found that out about Holmes... oh, well, he says a lot of other great things. "Then there was the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime.""The dog did nothing in the nighttime.""That was the curious incident."
I meant the eyeglass thingy, not the sink me.
Oh, okay, good, because I was thinking, "Oh nooooo, I wrote something completely inaccurate in my very first post" and I was going to go bang my head against the wall.But I'm glad you meant the eyeglass thingy. :)
For a moment I couldn't believe it! Then I remembered that he says "Odd's Fish, m'dear!" and "Zounds!" instead. I believe he says "Sink me!" in some of the sequels, though... so it isn't quite as bad as the Holmes thingy... Oh, I do love Sir Percival Blakeney! I'm so happy that I found this blog!
