yay you’re alive! hope your foot gets better soon, but glad to hear you’ve settled in well. how’s lia doing?

yay! thanks, bb! me too, i want to go out and see things, especially now that it’s getting cooler and super ~pleasant.

Lia’s doing fine. :) she’s not entirely sure she wants to stay here, all she talks about is going back to japan lol (not that she doesn’t like it here, she does, but her brain sort of lives there idk).

are you going to skam? it’s the second year in a row that i’m going to be so close and yet so far away…:/ really cannot afford anything rn, the move killed our savings, meh. next time. or, you know, worlds in boston. \o/

"YES, SEAN!"

"Er…I’m really sorry about this.[turns the award forward] Turn it that way. Er…this is a bit of a nightmare for me. I’ll try not to mumble, try and speak clearly. I’d like to thank, erm…[producer] Derrin [Schlesinger], [writer] Tony Grisoni, for looking after me and being my friend and writing things which are beautiful. And I’d like to thank [director] Sean Durkin for taking me through it, ‘cos it was a little difficult at times. Er, who else do I want to thank…I want to thank [casting director] Shaheen [Baig], for always being very nurturing and kind and supportive and putting me in front of directors who…didn’t really want me there, heh. So that’s a help. My agent, Conor McCaughan, who’s really nervous at the moment…he said ‘if you win, which you won’t, don’t…it up!’ Uh, who else…who else do I thank…er, the cast — Rory [Kinnear], lovely. Shirley [Henderson], known you for a long time, did my first-ever job with you, and you’re a very nice, lovely lady. And, er…did a little film this week with a little girl, seven years old, called Najwa, and if you’re watching — which you shouldn’t be — I’d like to say you were really lovely and it was a really lovely experience. Who else — [producer] Peter Carlton, I think I might’ve forgot you, got you there. Uh, who else, one more: my dad, yeah, who brought me up. He’s my, uh, favourite man in the world. Who else…my friends, Bob, at the pub…Emma [Scott], who’s my friend as well, did makeup… Oh, yeah, really important, really important: a woman called Lesley Halley, who was Miss Halley, who was my drama teacher at school when I was this high. I should’ve sort of ended up in Bernard Matthews [Farms] or places like that, and she went to my dad’s house and said ‘I think your boy could be an actor.’ And that was a big deal to my dad; he worked in a shipyard [as a] shop steward and he wasn’t really…didn’t want me to be an actor, really, kind of, that sort of thing. So she put me on that road, so thank you, Lesley, really, thank you.”

I’m alive

thank you, boston bbs who replied to my questions about Jamaica Plain etc. i replied individually, but ugh tumblr, idk.

i’ve been in boston for two months now (well, i ended up in the suburbs, which is fine for now but hopefully in a year or two we’ll be able to afford a non-matchbox-sized place in ~the city), during which time i got married (yay!) and fell down the stairs, ha. i was bedridden for almost a month and my left foot is still a bit crap, but i can limp around now. no great outings for me yet, but i did go to symphony hall for some villa-lobos (bachianas n. 5, short but gorgeous) and beethoven’s 5th, which was a bit ‘whoa there, mate, calm down’ for the first two movements but got noticeably better after that. well, the program actually started with mozart’s sinfonia concertante for four winds, which i tried to like because winds! but as with most things mozart, around 80% of it was super annoying/boring. #blasphe-me blasphe-you etc

i’m going to throw this out there because i would really like to meet my _skating bros, so if anyone’s up for a boring low-key lunch or coffee or st with the _skating granny, please let me know! i’m free almost everyday, so it should be easy to arrange something around your schedules.
