You’ll have to excuse me if this post is a bit off….I can’t really see right now, as I just chopped several white onions. I’m friggen blind.
Yesterday I received a call that shook me to my core.
My GBF, The Gaysian: ”Cat, you have to get here now.”
Me, obviously alarmed at such a dire proclamation: “What? What is it???”
-let it be said that the Gaysian’s hubs is military, and I thought for sure this was going to end with a repeat deployment, and he was losing himself. Or, he burned himself baking. Or,… Lady Gaga died. The possibilites were seemingly endless.
Gaysian: “I think I’m quite possibly going to fling myself from the ramparts of this institution!!!!”
Me: You’re at school, then?
Gaysian: Obviously, you stupid cow! (not meant as in fat, as in a typical, silly, British insult…I call him far worse, only, not even I dare type it here…
Me: What’s gone so wrong that you’re willing to climb to the roof only to make yourself a Pollack on its lawns?
Gaysian: My TA cut his hair.
Me: You seem to be of weak constitution, and lesser moral fiber if this is what drives you to end it all.
Gaysian: It’s short–as in two inches atop his crown and down to a mere centimeter on the sides.
Me: pick one. metric or standard
Gaysian: metric is standard.
Me: Not here, baby. Not here.
Gaysian: It’s not even long enough for us to drool over as he nervously runs his fingers through it. We are lost, I fear.
Me: That is bad, isn’t it.
Gaysian: I think we should should burn something in effigy.
Me: The remainder of our tact and dignity?
Gaysian: Pshh, darling, we lost that ages ago. How about Stephanie Meyer books?
Me: oooh. I’m IN.
This is why everyone should have cheeky, well-educated, gaysian brits in their lives. It just makes living better.
Honestly, though? The haircut does not take away from his hotness, or his inevitable state of eventually being set up with one of my non-academia friends. (two academics are not unlike two actors in a relationship–a really bad idea.)
I realize this story is entirely silly and unrelated to anything of import, but I just felt like I had to share.
Don’t fret my pets, I have a healthy, shiny, happy people recipe for you.
I made a Spanish Tortilla. A Spanish tortilla is not like the Mexican variety at all, it’s more like a potato-y frittata, sans queso. It is typically served at room temperature, and packs rather well for picnics. I love it served with a salad, and delicious glass of wine.
