"to ship" is official now! :))  

How awesome is that?!

This month the verb "to ship" officially made it into the renowned Oxford English Dictionary. Not only that!
The example of how to use it is this quote: "I'll always ship Sherlock and Molly."
Awwwww!!! I know for a fact that at least one person on my flist will LOVE this.
Righto, my dear Naughty Minxie? *wink wink*

Full article here <--

Awww ♥

Me being me, I wish they had used Mulder/Scully as an example since I think the word started to be used with them (?) or Steed/Mrs Peel because Steed and Mrs Peel are always a good example, but still... Awww ♥

Awww indeed :) And awwww to your lovely icon! ♥

To be honest, there would be plenty of great examples. I would have been perfectly ok with Mulder and Scully or Steed and Mrs Peel. Personally my mind goes straight to Kirk/Spock when thinking about the early times of fandom and shipping - though I know that's "just" the beginning of slash.

Hmm, does the Oxford talk about that?! *goes looking up slash* :D

Slowly, but unstoppably, the world of fandom is creeping into the real word! :D Good!

Awww, what a CUTE pic of Molly and Sherlock! *loves*
I knew you would love this, my dear Fellow Possum, because it is indeed JOLLY GOOD that they chose Molly and Sherlock as an example! :))) I think they are even as cute in person as they are on this little cartoon.

Maybe the huge Molly/Sherlock appreciation even did a little, little bit to improve your miffed mood? *pets steaming NJM*

Gern gescheh'n, Helio-lein! See you later!!! *waves*

And how marvellous that Sherlock/Molly was the example they quoted?!! Looks like they shied away from Sherlock/John thought... ;)

I'm pretty sure that a certain Naughty Minxie loved this, even if she was a bit miffed about Mary Watson this afternoon!! Heeee!!

Thanks for sharing, Our Shirl! ♥

Hehe... yup; you're absolutely right here, o beloved Mme Leading Minx of ours! SMILEY - ANIM - Zwinker-Smiley, hehe! photo SMILEY-ANIM-Zwinker-Smileyhehe_zps67e0e4ff.gif
*giggles minxily*

And... though, I have already read the wiki article, I'm still miffed. Because IMO, there would've been better ways to show us again how brilliant and smart Sherlock still is, as to simply put a gun in his hand.

*pets still-miffed NJM soothingly* There, there, darling. I can see you're still a bit cross! (see icon!) *huggles* ♥

You have a good week too, P. Auntie!

Still miffed? Oh dear... *joins P.Momma in the soothing petting* Meanwhile I'm still waiting for the re-run on our TV this weekend, so that I can put more attention to the fact that is upsetting you so much.

:-* Bussi!

Marvellous is the word, P.Momma!  photo klatsch.gif
Well, it is sort of understandable that they shied away from Sherlock/John for now. Maybe, in the next edition, they will add a cross reference linking to the entry "slash". Wouldn't that be a GRAND idea? ;-)

Oh yes, our poor miffed NJM! Let's hope this did a little bit to improve her "miffiness".  photo schaf2.gif

Bye bye, sweetling! MÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
