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