when u can’t figure out how to reblog something because of someone’s theme
THERE IT IS AGAIN! THERE IT FUCKING IS! i’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS PHOTO FOR YEARS AND NEVER COULD FIND IT!! THE LAN PARTY WITH THE GUY DUCT-TAPED TO THE CEILING!! BACK IN ANCIENT TIMES WHEN PEOPLE STILL USED CATHODE MONITORS AND WHEN COUNTERSTRIKE WAS THE NEW THING. THIS SHIT IS REAL. THIS IS REAL SHIT. SHIT THAT HAPPENED.
Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
So I’ve been to a few secondhand bookshops lately, because I wanted to have a Czech version of Brideshead, but, unfortunately, I found out that none of the shops in my city actually has it for sale… :/ Oh, that’s bad. I’ll probably have to buy it online (if only anyone is selling it)… The saleswoman in the last bookshop said they possibly have it in Prague though, so that’s an another option, but I don’t know, if I’m willing to travel to the capital because of this…
I just hate the fact that the last Czech edition of this book was published in 1994. (And I’m almost sure that they’re not planning to publish it again in the near future…)
