Lydia and Betsie are seriously the BEST PEOPLE EVER I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
We ended up not going to see Star Trek because some people were late (hint: it wasn’t me) and so we sat at Culver’s for a while and then we went to a park and swung on a swingset and walked in a prairie place thing and then Lydia discovered that I had never had Nutella so she demanded we go and get some at a grocery store and then we sat in my car for a little bit talking AND IT WAS SO GREAT IT WAS AMAZING AND I LOST MY VOICE FROM TALKING SO MUCH.
We ended up calling Lucy and putting her on speakerphone for about half of our adventures so it’s like she was with us too.
Also, Nutella is the Benedict Cumberbatch of foods, we’re all creepy 40 year-old men on the internet, I’m apparently spending the weekend with Batman, and we all agree that Arthur Darvill and Lee Pace are attractive. And other stuff, probably, IT WAS SO FUN and they’re so nice and funny and charming and fantastic and just yeah. It was awesome.
And honestly, everything was perfect. Skipping the movie, spontaneously running off to get nutella, Sarah.
Right after we saw each other across the crowded ordering area of the Culvers into each others’ arms,
while we were standing there giggling and grinning and meeting each other, this man in his seventies interrupted us and said, “I just have to say, you look so happy. Don’t see that much these days. Keep it up.”
Incidentally, when my picture message ringtone went off, delivering a picture of Lucy talking to us:
Lydia and Sarah were both shocked and confused, but Lucy, on speakerphone, just squealed and said, “Is that Tom Hiddleston?!”
There was a LOT of unashamed stalker talk and action going on. Mostly Lucy, because she had internet & facebook access and we didn’t. So that’s why we’re 40 year old men on the internet.
I’m still all flaily about meeting Sarah and want to tell you everything about it, but I want more so to go outside before I miss another second of this beautiful day. So.
I GOT TO MEET SARAH AND SHE IS BRILLIANT AND AMAZING AND FANTASTIC AND GAH.
Also, I’ve been wanting to use this gif for ages, and for once, it’s true.
See you later, darlings.
