30 Days of Carol: Day 17 – The First Three Pages of Carol: Tokyo Drift

click for all 30 Days of Carol

Before I even imagined a world where there could be of 30 Days of Carol – which, by the way, was a joke I made in passing that Riese immediately considered a legally binding contract – I imagined a world where Carol: Tokyo Drift could come alive on stage. “If it’s good enough for the Fast and the Furious franchise, it’s good enough for me.” – A thing I say regularly. I planned to have every lesbian I could find play every character, and I still do. Until it’s finished, its beginnings will have to exist here among family for safekeeping.

Have I actually worked out the plot, and did I combined two genres of movies to do so? I have and I did. Today and tomorrow are the first several pages edited for internet consumption.

  1. Oh there’s so much good stuff about this. I want to see those two days at the Plaza for sure.

  2. Therese’s heart got run over by a mommi,
    When that woman was shopping for Christmas toys,
    It had a big effect on her life,
    Because now she isn’t satisfied with boys

    Therese’s heart got run over by a mommi,
    Who met her for lunch down in Greenwich,
    Therese had trouble getting over her shyness,
    So they just flirted over creamy spinach

    Therese’s heart got run over by a mommi,
    Then they went and made love in a motel,
    Therese fell deeply head over heels,
    But where this is all leading, who can tell

    • Kristana, you’ve got amazing chops. Not only do you come back every day stronger, you’ve also branched out into other Comment threads. I am now officially addicted

  3. I want the men with one syllable names to run into the room after our women leave/check out and theorize as to why the place is wrecked (referring to one of your comments re: Carol marking Therese as a snack).

    And then in a delicious flashback, give us what Adèle has asked for … we get to see what really happened in that room.

  4. Erin I want you to know that if I suddenly get the urge to write a daily gratitude journal, you’ll be at the top of the list

  5. Very interested to see the lesbian casting candidates for Jim/John/Dan/Pete and Mark/Rick/Ben/Greg

  6. So it’s Carol with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Gal Gadot?
    Can we get Michelle Rodriguez to fight Ronda Rousey again?

  7. ‘“If it’s good enough for the Fast and the Furious franchise, it’s good enough for me.” – A thing I say regularly’

    honestly, same.

  8. Erin I am so sorry I did not hand in my Carol comment homework today but I was at the wedding of my wonderful darling friends who are both A+ members, and it was so beautiful.

    I promise I will make terrible/wonderful comments for the rest of Carol month.

    • Also I’m writing this at the airport check-in so please take that into consideration whilst giving a final grade.
