A short stocky kid and his much larger friend.
lord almighty but who would his ward be??? i’m going to make it olli for the heck of it
It has become commonplace to see Mr Martin at cotillions now, when once it would have been nearly impossible to convince him to come into Town. The Town mothers are all eagerly gossiping about him, for despite the fact that he is something of a recluse, he has no shortage of money. Even the reason for his return to Town — his ward, newly out — isn’t enough to deter them.
"It proves he makes excellent husband material," says Lady Jersey confidingly to James, who is watching Mr Martin refuse to dance with the third lady of the night. Meanwhile, his ward is dancing with yet another young lady. He has not, as of yet, shown any preference to anyone in particular. James has some level of admiration for young Mr Maatta’s seemingly singular dedication to dancing with every eligible lady in London.
Mr Martin, on the other hand, seems determined to snub everyone and it is making the mothers talk. James, who they know was once on friendly terms with Mr Martin, though admittedly not for several years, is encouraged to speak with him and perhaps persuade him to dance.
because it helps to remember this every now and then.
Also did anybody else notice that they removed the “Elton John’s AIDS foundation” logo from Miley’s picture? Fuckin’ agendas everywhere….
I literally threw a mini fit
The fact that they even touched up the woman in the BACKGROUND of the Selena Gomez pic is crazy.
I’ve said this every time it comes on my dash but please also notice that a lot of the women get photoshopped lighter.
And that´s the reason why nobody should try to be that thin, because that thin doesn´t exist in reality.
THIS IS SO SATISFYING TO LOOK AT I LITERALLY STARED AT THIS FOR LIKE 12 MINUTEs
there’s so much racism here with how they change rihanna’s nose
It’s weird because these women all looked gorgeous enough without the photoshopping and in most cases looked freakishly proportioned after it.
"I think," Mr Martin said from where he sat in his usual seat opposite James, "that Mr Malkin and Mr Crosby are better acquainted than we all suspect."
James could not restrain his laugh. “Mr Malkin and Mr Crosby? They can hardly stand the sight of one another!”
"That is what they’d like us to believe," Mr Martin said. "I have caught them having whispered conversations when they think the rest of us occupied, however, and when pressed Mr Crosby admitted they knew each other from Weymouth."
"We already know that,” said James. “It was Mr Malkin who told me all about Mr Crosby’s passion for Mr Johnson —”
"Oh, that ridiculous theory of yours again?" burst out Mr Martin.
"You are the one creating rumors of a secret romance," James said. "Who is being ridiculous there?"
"I at least have proof of my theory when yours is nothing more than idle fancy," Mr Martin said.
"Idle, there is that word again," James said. "It gives you great pleasure to describe me as idle, doesn’t it?"
"If you gave me any cause to believe that you are not, I would cease describing you thus," said Mr Martin.
Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.
This is the thing. Women have been doing awesome shit since there was awesome shit to do, we’ve BEEN THERE, if anyone bothered to look.
Oh, they looked. And then maliciously and willfully erased us from the books to keep anyone else from “getting ideas.”
Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.
