So I met Andrew Scott today!
I still can’t believe it. So this morning I was walking to class, just minding my business and thinking how lucky I was to be in London- for I’m from Belgium and just here for a month to study- and how lucky I was that I saw Martin Freeman yesterday from the front row stage seats and met him afterwards, which was pretty amazing because he was so kind and perfect but anyway- so suddenly I see this man approaching and I was like ‘woah, why am I imagining the actors to be everywhere’ because I wasn’t sure it was actually him but then I walked past him and stopped walking, stared at him and I was sure. Since I’m pretty shy I’m rather proud of myself that I actually did call for him ( like, literally, I knew I was going to regret it for the rest of my life), so I asked ‘Excuse me sir, are you Andrew Scott?” And he was the most perfect human ever and said that he was, came back and reached out his hand and told me that it was nice to meet me. I was lost for words and completely in shock and he told me that he was in a hurry but insisted to take a picture. It all went very quickly but I can’t be happier. I can’t remember a lot of it since it was a complete blur but he was so kind and these two charming actors have made me one lucky lady.

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY
Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.
Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?
This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”
At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”
"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.
"How is white a feminine color?"
She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.
The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.
A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.
And the son is more mature than her.
Someone giffed Javert’s jump from the 1978 Les Mis movie. I can die happy now.
Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane
One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
