I’M BACK. *relieved sigh*.
Ok so the phone line is out in my flat. No dialtone = no internet = no tumblr = saaaadface. Knowing British Telecom it’ll be a few weeks till I’m back among the living. So forgive me a brief hiatus, I’ll return soon as I can and better than ever (with no doubt lots of Man of Steel feels to have all over your dash) but till then this is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.
So there’s a guy who works on the same floor as me: he’s built like Paul Bettany, he has froofy Hugh-Grant-in-4-Weddings hair, and he dresses like one of the Tweed/anglophilia blogs. No, but really.
He is a problem when I’m trying to get work done.
-Bill Paxton: I wanted to be cool, like Michael.
-Michael Biehn: I was cool in that shot. …That was the last time I was cool.
-Bill Paxton: I wanted to be the ‘cool guy’, I didn’t wanna be the guy bellyaching!
-Michael Biehn: This movie made you a star, man!
-Bill Paxton: I wanted to be Michael Biehn in this movie.
-Michael Biehn: …so did I.
-Lance Henriksen: I wanted to be Sigourney.

but here’s the thing someone gets paid actual money to point a spray bottle at Hugh Dancy and spritz him with water until he looks appropriately sweaty and disheveled
