A Pickle for the Knowing Ones

Where does he think I am?

Earlier tonight I spoke to my father on the phone for a bit. Then twenty minutes later my mother called me back to talk to me. While she was on the phone with me I got to hear them have this exchange:

Dad: Who are you talking to?

Mom: Our daughter.

Dad: Our daughter?! How did you get her on the phone?!

Mom: …I phoned her.

So, possibilities:

1. My father thinks I am dead and that it happened in the twenty minutes between phone calls.
2. My father thinks I am in jail and am only allowed one call, which we’d already had.
3. My father thinks I am in the future/past/an alternate dimension forever closed to him/Europe.

You know it’ll be good when the trailer hurts you like this. [X]

It’s gonna bring tears, no doubt.

I’m so glad they don’t seem to be glossing over his persecution for being gay.  I was pretty sure they wouldn’t - it’s such an integral part of his story  but it’s still a relief to see it there in the trailer.

Douglas Richardson: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, we’re now about half way through our flight from Hong Kong to Limerick. And I just thought I’d let you know that I am bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored! We’re, unbelievably, still flying over Russia, which continues to be stupidly big, really enormous, far bigger than necessary. We’ve been in the air now for about a week. It doesn’t look like we’ll be landing until the last syllable of recorded time. So if anyone on board knows any card tricks, ghost stories or would like to have some sex, please do make your way to the flight deck. Thank you.

  • My friend: I want to read a fic that's a series of really short vignettes told from the POV of all the *really* minor characters, like the lady selling the lucky cats, and this graffiti artist.
  • Me: The problem is that all of them would be exactly the same: "Oh, look at this lovely couple! Aren't they just adorable with each other!"
