My flight was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone in a good mood as he served us food and drinks.
As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and told us “Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he’ll be landing the big scary plane shortly, so lovely people, if you could just put your trays up, that would be super.”
On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed an extremely well-dressed and exotic young woman hadn’t moved a muscle. “Perhaps you didn’t hear me over those big brute engines but I asked you to raise your trazy-poo, so the main man can pitty-pat us on the ground.”
She calmly turned her head and said, “In my country, I am called a Princess and I take orders from no one.”
To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, “Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I’m called a Queen, so I outrank you. Tray up, Bitch.”
Im going on holiday on Tuesday….I hope this happens! lol
Not quite finished yet but it has definitly not had the impact that Twilight had…and I know exactly why, and it’s actually very clever.
The first few chapters were the same lovely twilight-ness as before. Edward was just as charming, Bella was innocently vunerable.
Then Edward said goodbye, and we were left with a boring and predictable story of Jacob and his warewolf dilema. The teen love genre that was so intriguing and enthralling when vampires were involved, just wasn’t the same.
Then I realised it was closer to brilliance than poor writting.
I actually missed Edward, the way Bella did. I ached for him to return, I was turning to the back of the book just to see his name, I was irritated by Jacob, yet I was still turning the pages. I felt the massive loss Bella did and the immense relief when he appeared again.
Brilliant, maybe unintentional, but absolutely brilliant!
