HOW’d it go?!?
My hands were shaking and I was a nervous wreck, so much so that I never made it out of the parking lot. They’re giving me a do-over tomorrow and I’m bringing a friend for emotional support, hopefully it will go better.
(I have this weird position of always looking more calm/less neurotic than I actually am so nobody believed me that I was nervous until, you know, my hands shook so hard I couldn’t really hold the wheel. Sigh. It’s always depressing when you have to establish that you’re much more of a fuckup than you appear to be.)

I’M SO PROUD OF YOU! and i want to read what you published!!
Sadly, it won’t be in print until July 2014. But if you’re interested in reading about Japonisme, Isabella Bird, and travel writing in the later-Victorian era, you’ll be in luck then! :)
but DO you know how often i have sung “how do you solve a problem like maria” in my shower?
No, because the bug I planted in YOUR house is in the microw—I mean, there’s not bug. What bug? Bugs don’t exist!
tell it to the bathroom mirror, girl. (no really tell it to the bathroom mirror, i left a device back there.)
Ah. Well, if you’ve bugged the bathroom mirror, I guess I should apologize for how often I sing showtunes in the shower. Sorry about that. Didn’t know I had company.
(Not sorry at all about how awesome my Julie Andrews impression is. That shit is ON POINT.)
…..NO? HAHA. OF COURSE NOT. THAT WOULD BE WEIRD. CLOSE YOUR EYES FOR FIVE MINUTES DON’T OPEN THEM EVEN IF YOU HEAR SOMEONE RUMMAGING AROUND REMOVING SOUND RECORDING DEVICES BECAUSE THAT’S JUST YOUR IMAGINATION.
You’re my favorite, no question.
….I whisper into my keyboard, knowing you can hear it.
THIS CAN’T BE LOOOOVE, BECAUSE I FEEEEEL SO WEEEEEELLLLL
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT JUST CAME UP ON MY IPOD ON RANDOM, HOW DID YOU KNOW?? DID YOU BUG MY HOME, MOLLY??
ofgeography replied to your post: Casablana: a quick thought
honestly, all the reasons i love casablanca have like nothing to do with the rick/ilsa story. for this reason.
Some of those lines, man. They’re like verbal butter.
GIMME DAT FIC, is what i’m saying
OMG MOLLY, have you been reading the SUPER EPIC lawyer!AU of all of Marvel by the_wordbutler? The latest installment is looking like we’re gonna get Deadpool/Cable and I am so going to dig it. But it’s also the most enormous pile of wonderful that will keep you occupied for about a thousand years, there’s just that much of it.

david mitchell is my LITERAL PATRONUS oh my god i love him. he was my gateway drug to quiz panel shows and ive NEVER GONE BACK.
I don’t think there’s ever been a moment that spoke to me more in the history of television than the entire diatribe about dragons in the north in his kitchen. I was fond of him before then, but that sealed the deal.
