Really funny how people making fun of immigrants speaking “broken english” only know one fucking language.
I am off to Amsterdam tomorrow with my boy and I’m so excited
Mum told me today she’d watched something with Jo Brand where she talked about how she loved to make men feel small by explicitly describing periods and mum said it sounded like something I would do and I have never been more proud
So A Long Way Down wasn’t exactly one of my favourite books I’ve ever read (I love Nick Hornby but this is no where near his best writing) but I watched the film adaptation last night and was so disappointed at how they’d missed the whole point of the book. The whole point of the book is that suicidal feelings and depression are complex and difficult to explain and/or solve and that there isn’t just one solution that suddenly makes that person happy again. It showed how the characters had to work hard to live and their suicidal thoughts weren’t just stopped by falling in love with a handsome Aaron Paul in a leather jacket. A complete and utter misreading of the book and mental illness as a whole.
