Tears that start at the left eye are from pain. Tears from the right, happiness.
stid: the summary (non-benedict edition)
“Ah, Perry the platypus!”
“What an unexpected -“
“WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!”
“By societal convention!”
“Look! We’re in a fine dining environment. Everyone knows not to throw a scene in a fancy restaurant!”
“That’s right. You’re trapped. Sit down.”
This show is fucking brilliant.
I hope Im not too late
I wasn’t particularly offended by the scene from Star Trek Into Darkness. You know the scene; the gratuitous, “what guys want” interaction between Dr. Carol Marcus and Captain Kirk. It happens, mostly to women and complete void of plot points, but it happens. I have come to accept it especially in big budget blockbusters. What has really offended me is that it has become to the main focus of every discussion of Alice Eve in the movie.
I am a big Alice Eve fan. Yes, she has mostly been in secondary roles or/and roles were she plays a specific type but she has done is well and not on a cheesy level. While the doc is a supporting role, she is still important as a crew member and a person. I understand that the point is to set her up a as a love interest but is that all she gets to be? To remain slightly less spoilery, I will say that she is involved in this story and he part should have been so much more. I hope that in the next installment (we all know there will be a next installment) her character becomes a little bit more that a plot piece.
As another option, they could just have gratuitous nudity all around if that’s what their into: all they had to do was keep the Benedict shower scene. Everything would be even steven.
Doctor Who Fandom right now
I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it in time for Christmas. I miss you both so much.
Thing is, I got a little caught up in 18th century Italy. We met Giacomo Casanova. Yes, the one! We helped him escape prison. He didn’t really belong there anyway. Watching him and the Doctor interact was… interesting. Somehow they ended up betting on which of them could get Voltaire to reveal his real name. The Doctor lost. Now he owes him a chicken.
Oh, and you’ll never believe what I saw last week! Vogue is celebrating its 400th anniversary with an exhibit that includes hundreds of photos. And surprise, surprise, there you were! You looked so beautiful. You always do. You still haven’t told me why you quit that job.
How’s dad? Hug him for me, will you? Is he still considering getting a proper medical degree? Not that I don’t believe he could, but I don’t think he fits the job. He’s a nurturer, not a fixer.
I promise I’ll come visit soon. I’m just about to embark on a quick expedition to a library that occupies a whole planet. Can you imagine that? A planet sized library? I can barely picture it. It’s an archeologist’s playground, is what it is. Well, anyway, I swear I’ll come by after this. Just in time for your birthday, I think.
With love, always,
I was all like, oh this is cute, this is fine-…library?
This is why I have trust issues.
I am beyond proud to be an America, full eagles flying and dawns early light status, but I am jealous of Eurovision.
i want to be a part of the fun.
