Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown

In my dissolute days, I dated an English teacher for awhile who did it for me except in that he looked like what I thought Daniel Radcliffe's Harry Potter would look like grown up. At the time that disturbed me, as Harry Potter is a child and I didn't want to be thinking about children while 'dating' this man (definitely the bowdlerism of all time here, or at least since Dr. Thomas claimed Caligula enjoyed heated games of cribbage with his sister).

According to the ubiquitous posters for Equus, Daniel Radcliffe is now all grown up and it turns out I needn't have worried; they don't look anything at all like each other. Or at least I think they don't, as I haven't seen Daniel Radcliffe's knob - the only thing yesterday's National Post left to the imagination. And I amn't likely to, considering I want to make that comparison rather less than I want to avoid seeing a play about a psychiatrist 'finding himself' through the passionate bestiality of a patient. Jeebus. I know the kid wants to avoid typecasting but honestly, a fucking play about a psychiatrist finding himself? You know what, I can find the psychiatrist for you without you having to pay for a ticket. He's sitting in a comfy chair like a twat, making $90 an hour at the bottom end of his sliding scale and refusing to let that perverted old dinosaur Freud go. There. Found.

My long-short haircut looks good but is unexciting. Which is fine, I guess; I wanted something fairly unexciting for the interview so I can put up a convincing appearance of strait-lacedness. And that is all the news that is fit to procrastinate with before I go to the gym this morning.

let the boy run around naked... he's been stuck in robes and glasses for the last 10 years, poor thing.

i'm bored with my hair as well. maybe it's time to find a new place to get our hair done... ooooh but that so tortuous. ah - the rub: to get a randomly and horribly bad haircut, or to get a boring haircut.

Melbine ha detto...

Yeah, poor Daniel. Good thing the Harry Potter beast is wrapping up soon, seems like he's itching to move on...

...funny, I'm getting really sick of my hair these days. I haven't had a haircut since the fall and it's like my cells actually remember when I'm due. I'm glad your haircut looks good, even if unexciting!

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Oh Lady. Obviously the poor bastard can live his entire life naked and that would be more or less in line with how I think the whole human race should behave. I just really fucking hate entertainment about psychiatrists finding themselves via their passionate but crazy patients.

The fall was awhile ago, Mel, but if you can hold out, you might as well until the spring - get something short and fun to get you ready for summer.

What does getting a hard-on while riding a horse to for artistic credibility? The Post does a good job of saying nothing of importance but with lots of detail.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Well, it's a right wing rag, so nudity has to be either 'degenerate' or 'artistic' as far as it's concerned. And I suppose Daniel Radcliffe is too popular for it to be degenerate. So far.

Anyways, good on him for getting his kit off onstage and not in some Carine Adler/Lars Von Trier-esque peice of tedious filmed shit. I just really have a hate on about psychiatrist plotlines.

Bae Yong Joon - if that's the right way to transliterate it - also looks like grown-up Harry Potter.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Oh, spooky!
