the thing about spring in britain is that it creeps up on you.
you slowly register that it’s not actually dark when you leave work any more and then you spot a green sprout here and there that’s not quite open and all of a sudden there’s hundreds of daffodils and the blossoms are almost in full swing and the forsythia is budding and the magnolias are just starting to open and the temperature gets into double figures suddenly and everyone’s wearing t-shirts outside
it’s like getting hit with a seasonal train
the world is awake again
Seriously, whenever I use a flip phone the first thing I always think of is Star Trek :D
THIS SHIT AIN’T RIGHT
STAR TREK DIDN’T PREDICT THE FUTURE FOOL
IT CREATED THE FUTURE
IT INSPIRED THE FUTURE
THE REASON THESE THINGS EXIST IS BECAUSE STAR TREK MADE PEOPLE WANT THEM TO HAPPEN
STAR TREK IS THE FUTURE
“THE REASON THESE THINGS EXIST IS BECAUSE STAR TREK MADE PEOPLE WANT THEM TO HAPPEN” — that is CORRECT.

I like to imagine that in 1994, John Boswell walked up to the desk of some homophobic politician or Archbishop or something, held the first published copy of his book out in front of him, paused for effect, and then dropped it on the desk with the biggest “what now, motherfucker" expression in history. Then he unblinkingly held that pose and expression for thirty seconds before whispering a barely audible "owned" and then transforming into a giant dove made of silk and whooshing out the window to vanish into a sunbeam.
i told my mom this was a thing. she didn’t believe me but i told her. i told her dog.
