My first thought this morning was, “Heeeey, now I’m the same age as JoJo Banks when he went on the Endeavour voyage!” :DD

PRIORITIES

(Dammit, where’s my round-the-world trip in an old coal ship with a bad-tempered lieutenant???)

See, this is why you’re my best friend. 

Text conversation with my Mum today

  • Mum: What birthday presents would you like when you get back?
  • Me: Eh... nautical things. You know the sort of thing I like.
  • Mum: So a fully rigged sailing ship then. Bet that would be a Surprise. Snort. Did you smoke it?
  • Me: Haha very good. Getting it wrapped would be a bit of an Endeavour though.
  • Mum (or possibly Dad): If achieved, however, it would be quite a victory
  • Me: I'm sure you would be Indefatigable in your attempt.
  • Mum: I'll certainly make a Lively attempt after all, the Leopard can't change its spots
  • Me: Are you sure you've got the Constitution for it?
  • Mum: Yes cos I'm an absolute Colossus
  • Me: Well aren't you a Hotspur?
  • Mum: Honestly like a Beagle with a bone.
  • Me: We should stop now. This is just turning into a Bounty of bad puns.

It’s one of those times I kinda wish I was meaner. :\

geekbehindtheglasses said: Put laxatives in his food on the day then he’ll be too sick to go out. Problem solved!

What would I do without you??? IT’S GENIUS, GENIUS I TELL YOU.
