anna. catholic. i fancy many things, such as semicolons, knitting, eddie redmayne's freckles, tea, and basil. (i really fancy basil.) I want to be bernard black when i grow up, mainly because i would like to verbalise the phrase 'don't you dare use the word party as a verb in this shop' as often as I can in civilised conversation. (any kind of conversation, really). i overuse parentheses and am plotting a scheme to become a pirate at the olympics (it's going to happen).
sometimes i think i'm funny (often untrue). i have a ukulele called hamlet. take from that what you will. pippin is beautiful, life is short, and i have plans to eat all your bees.

"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in

He took her hand; - whether she had not herself made the first motion, she could not say - she might, perhaps, have rather offered it - but he took her hand, pressed it, and certainly was on the point of carrying it to his lips - when, from some fancy or other, he suddenly let it go. Why he should feel such a scruple, why he should change his mind when it was all but done, she could not perceive. He would have judged better, she thought, if he had not stopped. The intention, however, was indubitable; and whether it was that his manners had in general so little gallantry, or however else it happened, but she thought nothing became him more. It was with him, of so simple, yet so dignified a nature. She could not but recall the attempt with great satisfaction. It spoke such perfect amity. He left them immediately afterwards - gone in a moment.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
