esotericcoteries replied to your post “omg, so maybe it’s different because I knew the drama that would…”

love Luis’ optimistic “what could go wrong?” followed immediately by Paul: “so much could go wrong.”

that bit made me crack up. also Mary Berry’s blatant disdain with everyone’s inventive suggestions as the judges are going around. 

guys, look what came through the post today because Katie is an absolute angel.

Zombie: Do you miss anyone right now?
aw, I miss you guys! I miss Abbeygate (everyone, actual housemate or not, not the building).

Nymph: What are you like when you’re by yourself?
asleep? half-dressed, content, occupied although not necessarily with anything impressive or productive, usually pretty energetic and dancing around to something as I go about my time. a lot more focused. I don’t know if I feel a lot more affected by stuff or it’s just a matter of having the freedom to express emotions/reactions without like, making a social situation awkward or whatever, but sad stuff seems sadder and funny stuff seems funnier.

Incubus: What would someone have to do to get in your pants?
usual response would be the same old like, have a strong jawline, wear a plain white t-shirt, etc. but seriously? right now until the unforeseeable future, like, be someone I’m in love with who I respect and know feels the same way. and know how lucky you are.

esotericcoteries said: top five counties in England / top five smells / top five pieces of kitchen equipment

Top Five Counties in England:

1. I looked up counties for this but I got confused so we’ll just pretend that it’s 100% certain that the City of London is a county.

2. Greater London.

3. All counties closest to London.

4. Essex by virtue of uni but really the four? square miles I know.

5. Cumbria seems like it could be nice.

Top Five Smells:

1. Bubblegum.

2. Nero Assoluto by Cavalli.

3. All my mum’s perfumes on her scarves when it’s cold and I borrow one to wear.

4. All my loved ones. Which sounds horrific. Their perfume and shampoo and laundry detergent when I hug them, like. I just shoved my face into Katie’s shoulder and warm friend smell, love, so much love, so much warmth.

5. Can’t pick between mangos, lychees, cardamom, limes, matches when you burn them, vanilla, roast cumin, fresh coriander, nail polish, I’m just cheating now, I’ll probably edit and add fifty more, jasmine, fast food stalls at theme parks, guy sweat…

Top Five Pieces of Kitchen Equipment:

1. Chopping boards.

2. Sandwich presses.

3. Blenders.

4. Garlic crushers.

5. Lemon squeezers. 






*sucks guys dick*
*dies of nut allergy*

did you know that proteins in brazil nuts can be transmitted sexually so if someone had an allergy and the guy had eaten brazil nuts then they could literally suck dick and die of a nut allergy

now I do


the moment I knew I loved Katie and that we should be friends was when we were sitting around the kitchen table in our flat, freshers week, getting to know each other and we found out she had a nut allergy. and someone brought up this fact and that she should be careful, and she responded with, “Yeah. Just be like, “Have you had any nuts? Because I’m about to have yours.”“

esotericcoteries said: 4, 7, 28 (hahaha), 41 aaaand 44 xxxx

4. How old do you think you’ll be when you get married?
To be honest, I’ve made with peace with the fact I’m probably gonna die alone, so the most reasonable answer I can give is like, before seventy? Hopefully?

7. How old were you when you learned how to ride a bike?
I think I said seven, but now I’m questioning if lounging about while my dad steered me around and thought I was paying attention counts in the first place.

28. Have you ever had Indian food?
I have, Katie.

41. How many times have you been to the hospital?
Never. I mean, when I was born, but every other time has only been to visit or accompany other people. My dad took me to A&E when I was a baby because he didn’t know what hiccups were, so maybe that? Once?

44. What’s the last compliment you got?
Some website you type your name in for compliments was like, “you are talented, beautiful and intelligent, priyanka”. Couple of hours ago.

esotericcoteries said: Hello! I tagged you because you're my friend and I feel like these questions ought to get used at least once. post/56273330245/rule-1-always-post-the-rules-rule-2-answer. If that's how you link things? xxxxx

Okay, so this is the thing where we tag people, but I’m still despicable, so. Yeah.

1. Which house do you feel the strongest allegiance to in A Song of Ice and Fire?
I don’t watch/read that stuff. I don’t care for any of them from what I know, either, but I know Sansa? likes lemon cakes or something, so I can go for that.

2. What’s your favourite colour? Why?
Orange! Pink and gold are close behind though. I just like how it looks, and the vibrancy and warmth.

3. Talk about a day you didn’t think you’d make it through.
I don’t think I’ve ever really had one, which is nice. There was that one time in secondary school we had to do a sponsored walk around some park for six hours, in the freezing cold and pouring rain, dressed for hot weather. I’m pretty sure I rang my mum at work and told her to find me in the ICU if I wasn’t home by 4.

4. What was your first job? Did you love it? Why did you leave? Or are you still there? Or have you never had one? How come?
Helping out at a hairdressers. It was alright, I left because the woman who ran the place only needed me for a week (I did a small work experience slot, and we got on, so she asked if I wanted to stay for several more days voluntarily but ended up paying me).

5. What’s your favourite type of bean?
I don’t think I have a favourite. I guess kidney beans.

6. How often do you do things you don’t want to? Why?
I’m actually not sure. I know everything I’d like to do/be doing, but there’s a lot of compromise just existing with other people, so I’d say pretty regularly. Only not really because I’m indifferent to doing those things as opposed to actively not wanting to do them. Not often, then.

7. What’s your party trick?
Abandoning friends at the speed of light if a song I like comes on.

8. What’s a song that always makes you happy?

9. Have you ever broken a bone? Had major surgery?
Nope x2  edit: that was meant to mean no for both questions but now it just looks like a really ugly emoticon

10. What do you think of your first name?
It’s definitely grown on me. It’s not a favourite, but I can’t see anything else suiting.

11. What’s a book you’ve always been meaning to read, but haven’t read yet?
There aren’t any, actually. There are books I want to read, but I don’t really leave that much time between deciding I want to read something and reading it. Oh, the books for my course, probably. From 2011.

Oh! he has a good voice and I like his facial expressions…he has my vote. I’d like a doctor who isn’t an eccentric skinny white man. I’d also like a companion who isn’t a tall thin 20-something lady… We can only hope.

I just find it unbelievable that this guy can regenerate into any passable human-looking thing, yet eleven times in a row, it’s followed the same template, give or take a few years. And a regional accent.

that is the blandest man i have ever seen in my life

Lmao, the name seems familiar but he looks so much like an old teacher I had that I just can’t quite…

probably totally predictably I really love Rory Kinnear (he’s hilarious) but I don’t want him to be the Doctor (even though I don’t watch it any more). Never seen anything with Ejiofor in but he looks like a Doctor-y type, yes please.

Oh, I’m the same. Like, even suggested actors I like, I know that I don’t want them playing the Doctor even though it really makes no difference seeing as I don’t watch it anymore. As for Chiwetel Ejiofor, we’ve watched Love Actually together, but I don’t really count the tiny role he had (Keira Knightley’s character’s husband) here. I first saw him in Dirty Pretty Things (which we should totally make a movie night out of), and here he is getting his Hamlet on for a minute and a half.

esotericcoteries said: Fear, Harry Potter, Oops, Unite, Varsity? I am trying to think of questions for you that I couldn't answer properly myself :)

I love you!

Fear: Tell us three fears
1.Bugs/spiders, which I know is pretty standard but I don’t know what to say.
2. Hmm, what else, what else? Any horror movie cliché, especially creepy children/women in white/figures standing at the foot of your bed, contorted faces and body movements, and like…I don’t know what the correct term is. Not necessarily Biblical or Christian, but y’know the sort of scenes in old, archaic churches, with Latin chanting and ominous stained glass imagery?
3. Being unprepared in public for something I can’t fix immediately. Like, realising I missed a patch on my legs while shaving, or my monthlies saying hello when I’m not expecting it.

Harry Potter:  What was the last book you read?
Honestly, I don’t think I’ve properly sat down and read a novel start-to-finish since Junot Díaz’s This Is How You Lose Her, and that was in October. I’ve dipped in and out of poetry books and a couple of favourites though, the last one being one of Jhumpa Lahiri’s short stories in Interpreter of Maladies.

Oops: What is one thing you’d like to change/fix?
…The amount of money in my bank account.

Unite: Do you sponsor a cause? 
No. A lot of causes asking for routine payments are sketchy as hell when you scratch below the surface, but after I’ve made the effort to distinguish trustworthy, genuinely helpful causes that call for sponsors, yeah. I’m just not a regular. As an undergrad living away from home who can barely manage a budget, I don’t really know if I could afford to right now, either.

Varsity: Do you play/watch sport?
Nope. As far as fitness goes, I prefer solo exercising as opposed to team stuff, and playing a game of something isn’t really my idea of fun/leisure. I like basketball, though, but I wouldn’t call myself a “fan”. I guess I’m indifferent to sport, but I appreciate it. If someone wanted to explain a bit to me, I’d be interested. 

Did I ever tell you guys about the time me and Katie tried this?
