"Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”"

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.

"And then she’s slim,
so swift and slim,
(Electric wires in every limb)
and she can ride and she can swim
and she can dance till stars grow dim
and waking, fresh as violets,
play eighteen holes or seven sets,
or paint or cook,
or write a book,
or fence or vote,
or sail a boat
Will run a mile or run a man,
(and run the office, if she can)
defend a burgler, drive a plane,
and in the evening, dance again."
A. P. Herbert, Ballads for Broadbrows

"your made-up pronouns aren’t real words"

ah yes, as an english major i can confirm that no one has ever made up words to compensate for gaps in the language

all words occur naturally in caves located deep in the Amazon rainforest, where they are carefully handpicked by linguists and preserved in dictionaries

Reading or Writing.

OH, heavens. Reading, I suppose. Writing means nothing without readers.

Anon or not, make me choose between:

  • Show: _______ or ________ ?
  • Character: ________ or _________ ?
  • Pairing: _________ or _________ ?
  • Anything: ________ or _________ ?
"When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that."

I like him. Let’s keep him.
