Can you spot the oreos?
Hey! I’m continuing my cross-stitch collection, and today it’s Simon and Blue from Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda. Or ‘Love, Simon’ depending on whether you prefer the film. And whilst I didn’t, I can see why they shortened the name!
Recently, I’ve been talking quite a lot about the Simonverse (I’m moving onto Kingdom Of Flesh And Fire next week, I promise!). Mainly because I just finished Love Creekwood and you can find my review of this adorable book here. I’ve also been rewatching the film and whilst I’m enjoying it more on a second rewatch, I guess I love the book so much that I’m annoyed by my favourite parts that were missed out. And by the things that were added – who is this strange Vice Principla who has no respect for personal space? Wow. And why is Nora now a baking 11 year old? And since when did Leah have a crush on Simon? But I suppose that I’m never going to be happy with it unless it’s a direct reading of them book!
So, I thought I’d celebrate all the things I love about the universe. I think that all the characters are really well cast, and it’s still pretty cool to have a decent gay teen rom-com, even if I miss all the scenes at the end. So, here’s my favourite quote from the last line of the book: Maybe this is a holy freaking huge awesome deal. Maybe I want it to be. It didn’t come up that well on the photo! Simon’s wearing a cardigan (because he would, wouldn’t he?), glasses and a hint of an Elliott Smith tshirt, whilst Blue’s in… blue. I am a comic genius, I know 🙂
What do you think! Have you taken up any hobbies during Lockdown? Got any tips for cross-stiching? Let me know in the comments!
