Woooowoowowow the Mindy Project tonight!!!! yo like……….. I’m so into everything that woman does??? she is my inspiration and reason to be….it really is so awesome seeing an Indian American woman killing it in that industry and it just makes u realize how important representation truly is…..also her and BJ are consistently giving me feelings and I hate them

@fhb okay I’ve tried all kinds of new stuff since I’ve been here and here is my verdict:

Fish and chips: awesome
Bangers and mash: awesome
English lemonade which is weirdly different from American lemonade: awesome when they don’t forget to put actual lemon in it and it’s just fizzy water
Chicken masala: awesome
Toffee ice cream: awesome
Macarons: awesome
Banoffee pie: the best thing that ever happened to me

Ernest Hemingway’s Macho Letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald

H/T to The Daily Beast.

Dear Scott—

We are going in to Pamplona tomorrow. Been trout fishing here. How are you? And how is Zelda?

I am feeling better than I’ve ever felt—havent drunk any thing but wine since I left Paris. God it has been wonderful country. But you hate country. All right omit description of country. I wonder what your idea of heaven would be—A beautiful vacuum filled with wealthy monogamists, all powerful and members of the best families all drinking themselves to death. And hell would probably [be] an ugly vacuum full of poor polygamists unable to obtain booze or with chronic stomach disorders that they called secret sorrows.

To me heaven would be a big bull ring with me holding two barrera seats and a trout stream outside that no one else was allowed to fish in and two lovely houses in the town; one where I would have my wife and children and be monogamous and love them truly and well and the other where I would have my nine beautiful mistresses on 9 different floors and one house would be fitted up with special copies of the Dial printed on soft tissue and kept in the toilets on every floor and in the other house we would use the American Mercury and the New Republic.* Then there would be a fine church like in Pamplona where I could go and be confessed on the way from one house to the other and I would get on my horse and ride out with my son to my bull ranch named Hacienda Hadley and toss coins to all my illegitimate children that lined the road. I would write out at the Hacienda and send my son in to lock the chastity belts onto my mistresses because someone had just galloped up with the news that a notorious monogamist named Fitzgerald had been seen riding toward the town at the head of a company of strolling drinkers.

Well anyway were going into town tomorrow early in the morning. Write me at the

Hotel Quintana

Pamplona

Spain

Or dont you like to write letters. I do because it’s such a swell way to keep from working and yet feel you’ve done something.

So Long and love to Zelda from us both—

Yours,

Ernest
