…but you don’t look sick.

the thing EVER Y SINGLE person says when they find out i have a chronic illness. 

please don’t say this darlings, i kno it’s an effort at being kind, but it’s a failed one.

if someone tells you they have a chronic illness don’t challenge them to prove how sick they are to you. it’s exhausting to have to explain a complicated thing, constantly to everyone. esp. when instead we could be talking about Ben C’s perfect face!

When I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.

I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.

His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.

He must be stopped.

Chartreuse (isn’t that kind of green maybe?) - I think you are an absolute doll and a rare gem that actually appreciates the tidbits of other peoples lives they share with you. Which is lots of fun on the internet, but I’m sure makes you fantastic in your real life job too!
