I have just had an e-mail exchange with a friend wherein I mentioned my impending birthdayness, he said he/they would have to remember to get me something*, I said I didn't mean to be hinty, and he said he'd prefer that I hint than that he forget.
But then he remembered two things: First, Loaf had said, in a hinty kind of way, things like, “All these pilgrims heading for the tower—what do they care for the city?” and “People live here in O all their lives and never visit the tower.”
It's all very vague and hinty, but if you read into it you can see that there's some talk of a physical television instead of just a headless box.
Just to mention at this point, just in case anyone was expecting a toothless hinty recap.
You could also pull some kind of sweet Lloyd Dobler move and send her something like an extremely cute, hinty mix.
Spent my lunch hour being domestic ... actually went and bought really basic, boring, necessary items (* hinty: what is the cliche boring Xmas gift from your Mom?
