Desert of the Real

A Tumblr for my own amusement. But if anyone orders Merlot I'm leaving.
@KimKardashian @kanyewest Your child doesn’t want to go to fucking #FashionWeek. What is she, like 1?! She wants to binge watch Peppa Pig.

I am posting an excerpt from His Name Is Tony. This is a favourite story of mine.

Alzheimer’s people can be cunning, crafty, especially In the early stages as it’s easier to cover it up. And my father had his own way dealing with such a situation. He had the proper tools. And a McMahon can bullshit eloquently.

One day in town when Dad and I were walking down William Street we met a man who I didn’t recognise but he 
,recognised Dad.

Nameless bloke: “Jaysus, long time no see!” He’d pump Dad’s hand with a strong shake. How’s it goin’ Tone?” 

"Ah divilabit. And yourself?"

We left Nameless Bloke go on and on for ages, Dad, all the while listing, smiling and me trying to hide a smirk. I’d seen this before.

After the two men said their goodbyes, I waited a moment before asking. 

"Dad?"
“Yes?”
“Who was that you were talking to you?”
He beamed. “Haven’t a feckin clue.”

Taken @ 3AM in 5B, a psychiatric ward. I think these photos represent how I felt quite often, that no prescribed drug could ever really fix me. And I was scared. I just kept telling the doctors and nurses that I wanted to be with my father, who passed Dec 2012.

In a way I’m glad I kept these shots. I’m not a Selfie Queen, but I believe the
camera can often catch what people don’t see. And lying in my bed I tried to forget both the past and the future, the latter of which I didn’t want anymore.

villa-kulla:

Aaron Paul has now received three Emmys for portraying the same character, one of only a tiny group of actors to ever do so.

Bryan Cranston also had this distinction but no longer does.

Because Bryan Cranston now has four.

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are now two of the most critically acclaimed, record-breaking television actors of all time.
