It’s so comforting to know that I still have a strong geek streak in my readership!
Yes, yes indeed, last week’s coat is a replica of Captain Jack Harkness’s. I purchased it from a seller on Etsy…whose shop seems to suddenly be inexplicably empty. So much for trying to drum up more business for them. In any case, I love it – it’s extremely well-fitted, comfortable, and shockingly soft. My only complaint – and it’s so incredibly minor – is that the belt isn’t long enough to tie behind me, the way Jack wears it. Oh well.
For those of you who don’t know (Hi! I love my non-geek readers, too!) Captain Jack Harkness is a very handsome, very compelling character from Doctor Who and Torchwood. I am, perhaps, mildly obsessed with him. Beyond being gorgeous, charming, funny, and smart, with a tragic background for depth and a dash of arrogance for spice, he’s also among the very few openly bisexual (actually, omnisexual) characters on television. And he’s not just omnisexual! He’s omnisexual and his shit isn’t all broken up about it. He’s not in crisis over his sexual orientation. No one is pressing him to be either gay or straight. He just likes flirting with and having sex with all manner of creatures – male, female, human, alien, pink, blue or otherwise. It’s so amazing to see bisexuality/omnisexuality portrayed positively on television…I can’t even tell you.
So thank you, all, for playing along with my silliness. I’m so grateful to each and every one of you who commented, but I only have one extra copy of the book, and it goes to…Gudrun! Congratulations! Gudrun, send me an email (g33kgirlATgmailDOTcom) with your mailing address and I’ll get your copy of the fabulous Big Big Love to you.
For the rest of you, I heartily recommend picking it up. You can order it from Hanne Blank’s favorite independent bookstore, my favorite independent bookstore, your favorite independent bookstore, or (of course) Amazon.
Here’s wishing you fabulous sex, no mater what your size, gender, or orientation.
