So this guy I just started seeing recently tells me he wants to build—yes, build—a bike like this, even though most people he’s shown a picture of it to think it’s ugly. (That’s not him in the photo, btw.)
I ask him to show me the picture anyway.
First words out of my mouth: “That’s kinda dieselpunk!” (In other words, I like it. A lot.)
"Dieselpunk?" he asks. "What’s that?"
*devious chuckle* Oh, he has much to learn…
In other news, I’m seeing a guy who actually wants to own a motorcycle. Did I mention that? Because I’m pretty sure we’ve talked about this before. (It’s not a black bike, sure, but isn’t dieselpunk better anyway?)
…and boy, does he look damn close to that guy, haha. Y’know…tall, dark and handsome with a chiseled jawline, pulls off the close-shaven look nicely… He’s even got those eyes down to a tee.
The universe is either just teasing me unfairly right now or being very, very good to me… We’ll see.
In the meantime, I’ll be your Riding Beauty anytime, Mr. Tall-Dark-And-Handsome. ;)

If only the chairs had rivets! Still has a very retro “aviation age” look to it. But that bed!

This is like the most exciting discovery I’ve come across for some time now.
Murder, mystery and mayhem with a detective-flapper in my latest TV obsession: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries! Kinda like a flapper-era Rizzoli and Isles, really, as Miss Fisher has a best-friend-physician whose professional opinion she seeks out from time to time.
What a riot!
(Season 1 is available on Netflix, Americans!)
Iiiii wouldn’t compare it to Rizzoli and Isles, which my family quit five minutes into the first episode when one of them woodenly deduced that the husband victim had been tied up and forced to watch the wife be raped before they were both murdered. Maybe it got better after that, I wouldn’t know, but I’m four eps into Miss Fisher and it’s just as concerned with being fun as it is with the social issues it touches upon.
tiyana.marie.speaks: I’ve only seen a handful of episodes of Rizzoli and Isles, but I always thought the two characters had a lot of fun, light-hearted banter going on between them, despite the nature of the cases they worked on. Though honestly, with Miss Fisher I was looking at it more from the “detective-and-medical-professional duo” angle than anything else. Funny thing is once I got past the first episode of Miss Fisher, haha (that came after I wrote this post originally), I realized it wasn’t so much about her working with her physician friend as it was about Phryne going around and doing her own thing.
Because more often than not, Phryne will do her own thing, no matter what anyone else says.
Ah, well. Too bad! It’s still loads of fun to watch.
