Reeeeeeeeeally what to see what these apparently fake but amazing SPN spoilers are but am worried that they'll turn out to be true or still somehow spoil the episode for me regardless. ARAGH WHAT TO DOOOO

In other news I've been catching bits of misfits the last few fridays and it seems really good. Need to see if the dvd shop has it.

Watched Tennant's last DW episode on tv again today and OH GOD so many feelings. An assembly line of every DW character I ever loved marched out to break my heart a million times in the span of 15 minutes.

Also, i now have an extra day at work each week, and will be the ONLY designer there. TERRIFIED I AM NOT READY FOR THIS OH GOD WHO MAKES SOMEONE HEAD DESIGNER WHEN THEY HAVE LESS THAN A YEAR'S EXPERIENCE AND IS STILL STUDYING AND IS A NERVOUS WRECK EVERY TIME SHE ENTERS THE BUILDING BECAUSE SHE CAN'T COPE WITH SO MUCH DISORGANISATION AND SO LITTLE NATURAL LIGHT GOD I AM FREAKING OUT.

But! I've decided I'm going to make the best of it, consciously make the effort to be more confident and calm, and make the little changes needed to make the artroom run better with me as the principle user, regardless of how my half-mad boss has done things for the past 35 years. Still shitting myself but gonna try, and at least I get a bit more money each week. :/

OH OH AND: MY PASSPORT CAME TODAYYYYYYYY! EUROPE IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING YESSSSSSS. And it's a shiney new passport design with pictures all through it so if I get homesick I can just look at it and go OH GUMTREES AND EMUS IT'S LIKE I NEVER LEFT.

Wrote a thing for the local paper today. the old movie theatre facade is being restored in town, so I wrote a thing about some of my favourite really old movies. Gosh it felt great to be writing about film again; I really need to get this blog thing happening.

I MISS UNI SO MUCH IT HURTS. I AM SO GOING BACK FOR HONOURS NEXT YEAR.

This was a wonderful thing. It was a beautifully constructed episode, a beautifully designed episode, and such a refreshingly humanistic episode.

Whys and howevers under here )

The whole way through, I was hoping for just one little reference, just one connection to Press Gang. Because, dammit, it's Stephen Moffat and I refuse to believe anyone could move on from creating something so amazing as Press Gang without at least making a bit of a nod to it. After five seasons of it, I've come to know and love his early writing style pretty well. He had some pretty distinct tropes, and I always want to see them in the new stuff.

And there it was! Right at the end (and also right at the beginning really, though it took me till the end to realise that). The very best reference you could ask for. Right down to the dressing gown.

Why do I do so many major scenes in my life dressed in my pajamas?



Also: why in holy hell do I not have a Lynda icon.

By the way, I should have recced this ages ago, but only just remembered it.

Anyone who likes Doctor Who, or Blackadder, or neither, but especially both, should go read Just Impediment - a Who-Blackadder crossover, with an absolutely joyously perfect Edmund voice and spot-on Ten.

OH MY GOODNESS.

Just rewatched Time Crash, the children in need special, after linking [livejournal.com profile] ineptshieldmaid and [livejournal.com profile] phrasemuffin to it, and that whole exchange about the Master -

TEN: Oh! He just showed up again, same as ever.
FIVE: Oh no, really? Does he still have that rubbish beard?
TEN: No, no beard this time. Well, a wife

- asjfgj;fdg;jhakshfhooooomygod, how much better that line is now I know what "having a beard" means. THE HO-YAY, GOOD LORD THE HO-YAY!




eeeeheehee, double entendre!

You know what I'd like to see happen on Who? It's a bit immature and possibly has already happened or isn't possible for some reason I'm not thinking of, but I'd like it.

TARDIS lands in London in 1930. Big alieny or timey disaster happens, and Doctor and crew go running through the streets to find the TARDIS and save the day, or the day is already saved and Doctor strides alone to his ship, ready to continue his weary journey, or any other scenario.

We see the characters running/trudging forward, then a cut to the approaching shape of the TARDIS in the middle of the frame, getting slowly larger as they get nearer. Characters finally reach it and open door to find it is an actual police box.

POSSIBLE REACTIONS:

1) Police officer sitting inside with a cuppa: Oi!

Doctor: ... Well. This's never happened before.

Companion: Wha...? These things actually existed?!


2) Doctor: *looks around box*

*goes outside, looks around the street*

*steps back in the box*

Where did I park, then?


3) *camera on companion as she thrusts the door open, looks inside, then, confused, walks around the outside of the box*

Little old man with phone against his ear: Sorry, love, you'll have to wait a bit, me hat's been nicked.


4) *door opens to reveal an empty and juuust big enough booth*

Jack (standing just behind the Doctor): *blinks*
*grins*
*speaks into the Doctor's ear* I like how you're thinking, but wouldn't the real one be a bit more comfortable?

Doctor: Oh for pity's sake -- now is not the time!

*big scary alieny thing heard in the distance*


Blink

Ohmygod. You'd think I'd know by now.

We have family visiting, and one of my cousins and I had to start talking about Dr Who. Because, well, that's what we do. And I made the mistake of bringing up Blink. You know, the frecking freaky one with the angels? The one that I screamed in? The one that resulted in me having to turn on my bedside light and look around in every direction every few minutes while trying to sleep because I kept thinking about it? That one.

Then our younger non-Who-fan cousin asked what was so scary about it, so I did the peaceful-hands-over-face pose then suddenly reverted to the fangs-out, claws-out, an-inch-from-her-face pose to demonstrate (which worked, she looked suitably terrified). 

After that I didn't give it a thought. Until last night. In the shower. At 2am. When there was no one around and nowhere for me to go. And the bathroom window was opposite me, all big and black and open, through which anything could see me without being seen themselves. And I kept getting the distinct impression that something was watching me from behind, even though that is totally impossible because there were only a few inches between me and the shower wall. So I had to look, and whenever my eyes were off the window, I half expected that when I faced it again there would be an angel frozen swooping down on me, mouth open, face distorted, claws grasping. And there'd be nowhere for me to go, because I was naked and dripping wet, and I'd never get out of the shower cube and the bathroom with out having to blink, I'd barely be able to move at all out of shear kzjsdgh TERROR.

But of course there was nothing. Because I ALWAYS FREAK MYSELF OUT BECAUSE I AM A WUSS AND SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO WATCH SCARY THINGS. You'd think I'd be over it by now, but I was fracking scared, man. 

Curse you Who.

Still, best episode ever, if I do say so myself.
