as the next season of doctor who approaches its time for me to wrestle with the question
does my faith in peter capaldi outweigh my distrust of steven moffat
My friends Megan and Jonathan and I heard about this private screening of a movie called ‘This is Not a Club’ which is about speech and debate and since we’re all speechies we were all psyched to go. (Megan and I actually run fuckyeahspeech. Represent, yo.) The screening was happening in LA and we all live in LA so we were like FUCK YEAH and high-tailed it over there.
So we get there to this tiny private theater and suddenly realize WE ARE SEVERELY UNDER-DRESSED and everyone seems to know each other and maybe we shouldn’t be here???? BUT FUCK EVERYTHING we go in anyway.
So we get in the theater and we sit down and people are trickling in and I look up— and there is a man standing there in the aisle talking to someone. He is wearing a turquoise bro tank and white-washed jeans and I’m like ‘well clearly i’m not the only one under-dressed’ and then—. Wait. IS THAT FUCKING CHRIS PINE.
I lean over to Megan and whisper, “isthatchrispine.” And she and Jonathan look up and we’re just staring at him and trying to lean in oh so casually to see if we can recognize his voice. Megan says, “I’m gonna google him to see what current hairstyle he has.” And just as she pulls her phone out a man behind me yells, “Hey CP!” And he looks up and starts to head over and I whisper (very forcefully) “MEGANTHATSHIMTHATSDEFINITELYHIMPUTYOURPHONEAWAY.”
and so GOOD OLE’ CP WALKS OVER IN ALL HIS BEARDED GLORY AND HIS FRIEND POINTS AT THE OPEN SEAT NEXT TO ME AND SAYS “HERE I HAVE A SEAT FOR YOU HERE.”
And??? My heart started beating so quickly?? He sat down next to me and the room darkened and I was so conscious of all my limbs and GOD DAMN IT WHY DID I CHOOSE TODAY TO WEAR FLIP FLOPS. FUCK I TOTALLY FORGOT TO PUT DEODORANT ON DIDN’T I. FUCK.
Long story short I spent about 50% of the movie listening to his little FUCKING CHRIS PINE GIGGLES AND WATCHING HIS LIL FIDGETY HANDS MOVE AND OUR ARMS BRUSHED AND I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME.
GOOD FUCKIGN BYE WORLD.
