“As the very essence of thinking woman’s crumpet — in essence, a heterosexual Stephen Fry, but with the flashing eyes of a Gypsy violinist — one can presume that Mitchell would have been getting some good quality dating offers. Classy birds — ones with expensive knickers, first-edition George Orwells, and knowledge of niche Scottish distilleries. If a good-looking famous bloke finds looking for love too enervating — when he’s probably got women hurling themselves at him every time he pops to the corner shop for Yop — it does start to suggest that dating might rank as not a pleasure, but, rather, an unpleasant and risky undertaking, such as laser eye-correction. One that many might understandably just not bother with.”—Caitlin Moran - If David Mitchell’s given up on dating, what hope Is there for us? (via fuckyeahcaitlinmoran)
When I say I’m in a long distance relationship, the average person does an exaggeratedly empathetic face. Gently, they nod: “Oh, poor thing. It’s hard, isn’t it?” If I’m not quick enough, they proceed to crooning sympathetically. “Long distance. So far.”
I’m not sure what these people want:…
Oh my God, hello my life. Especially the bit about being funnier in writing. People are always amazed at how I can suddenly produce a fully-functioning long-distance relationship based entirely on Facebook messages.
Plus, I love train journeys for weekend trips. And I love being alone.
i ADORE caitlin moran, and kate for making this http://fuckyeahcaitlinmoran.tumblr.com/ (well i also adore kate for being generally fantastic and a fucking hero, but that’s beside the point) GO FOLLOW FFS
I <3 my estranged brain-twin and am pathetically pleased I’ve worked out how to do A Thing on the internet. I haven’t done any work today, but I have set up a creepy blog. WIN.
Sorry everyone who’s following me who keeps seeing the same posts appearing and disappearing - I have actually made FuckYeahCaitlinMoran but every time I try and reblog posts in that account it does it from this one. I’ve set it so FYCM is showing at the top of my dash. What else am I missing?
Wait - it’s the drop down menu on the right, isn’t it? Derp.
