pantaloons,

He might be like ‘Oh god! The kid fell out of his high chair! Where were you when it happened?!’ And Harry would be like 'Oh. I was ironing my Alexander McQueen silk pantaloons, wasn’t I?’ or 'I was dressing as a pirate in the kitchen when the accident happened!’ […] Traditionally, babysitter does like to wear a Breton striped top with a dungaree, soo… I mean, he does have an element of Child Catcher about him, Harry Styles. If he turned up in a pink striped jumpsuit, he might scare the child.

So sorry for the lack of posts this and last week, school started again and it just sucks out all of my energy and motivation.
Also I didn’t have room for all 14 songs so Johnny boy and Taxi Cab isn’t on here. And I also know that the circles aren’t perfectly lined up, but I just wanted to draw something fairly simple and quick

Sometimes when I am editing, I have to wonder if other Brits go through the same disconnect that happens when a US writer refers to women’s underwear as “panties”. 

It’s especially jarring when I read it in fic meant to be set in the UK, and I just know the words “take your panties off” just wouldn’t fly, especially in Scots. Knickers, yes, and even briefs and drawers. But panties, not so much.

Like I know it’s in our vernacular too, and maybe I’m just showing my age (what do I know what the kids are saying these days, old thing that I apparently am), but panties just has such a juvenile and patronizing quality to it that the word just makes me want to shrink in on myself. I dunno, maybe it’s just me being to finicky. Which I suppose is kind of the point when you hire me to make accurate cultural edits like Brit Eye for the Yankie but whatever, I feel certain in telling you the word “panties” would not have been used in 17th century Scotland.

Although if you want to tell someone not to get their pantaloons in a twist, I’m 100% here for this.
