So I went to see Bohemian Rhapsody last night because I thought it would be a good idea to spend three hours at the cinema late on a work night (zombie me today was less fond of the idea).

Anyhoo, during the opening credits, when Tom Hollander’s name came up, The Housemate gave me a good dig in the ribs with his elbow.

And I was like, pfff, what, I’m openly asexual now, I don’t have to pretend to have crushes on actors any more.

And then after a while, Tom Hollander shows up as the band’s lawyer and I was like, 


So apparently some things never change.

* ‘Squish’ is ace vernacular for ‘crush’ because we have our own words for everything, because we can.


  1. I haven't been to the cinema in ages, but quite fancy seeing Bohemian Rhapsody. I hope you enjoyed it (and not just Mr Hollander!).

    1. It's a pretty good movie - I certainly enjoyed it while I was watching it and had a bit of a cry (although not as audibly as the people in front!). I did zone out a little towards the end but it was pretty late in the evening. Looking back on it, I can see some obvious biopic failings - lack of depth, rushed and rearranged events to make a better narrative and some very OTT black and white portrayals of characters (plus they really took some big liberties with the truth!) but it was still an enjoyable movie, especially if you like listening to Queen music.


I look forward to your enthusiastic and loving comment.
