Happy Sunday

Well, it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon for me at any rate, since tomorrow is sort of my Monday. I don’t mind. It’s almost as if I have two weekends; one in which I don’t have to work, and one in which I work half days, but my honey is home. Life is good.

We’re having a lovely visit with smoakes777. She’s visiting some places from her past today, and then she’s off to do family stuff tomorrow. We’ve had some wonderful conversations about atheism, belief, wonder and joy. I miss her, but I will not try to persuade her to come home. I guess the west coast is just the better place for some of my dear ones. I’m learning to live with that.

In other news, after taking a while to warm up to it, I am gleefully fangirlish about the new Doctor Who. There’s all kinds of drama and action there didn’t used to be, and the effects are vastly improved. Which admittedly isn’t all the hard to accomplish, given the production values the BBC was churning out in the 70s and 80s, but still.

The best part is how much it’s grown up. This Doctor broods, and wears black leather, and even flirts! With the addition of the canonically bisexual male companion (*points at icon*) the hoyay is deliciously blatant:

Jack: Aww, sweet. How come I never get any of that?
Doctor: Buy me a drink first.
Jack: You are such hard work.
Doctor: But worth it!

And I really like Rose! She’s the first female companion in ages who’s more of an action heroine than an Aunt Mae.

But I do think we’re going to have to call a moratorium on dashing, charismatic guys named Jack. It’s just getting ridiculous.

Oh squee!! We can be fangirls on Dr. Who stuff together, hooray!

(I'm all a-swoon at the whole thing...)

Yay! OMG, I just love the 2005 season! I’m gonna have to reserve judgment on the Tenth Doctor for the time being. Eccleston has that particular type of uglysexy that I think really works. So far, David Tennant comes across as sort of cutesydorky. He may grow on me, but I dunno.

I’m surprised by how much I like Rose. Perky young blondes rarely resonate for me, but I dig her. She makes “plucky” not seem gross.

Anyway, we must make time to squee together! I’ve mapped out tons of communities and galleries and fic archives already... *rolls eyes at self*

Me, the girl who normally doesn't like sci-fi, LOVES the new Doctor Who.

I would love an icon of Rose and the Doctor...or the creepy gas mask kids, if you ever have a moment.

And Captain Jack...You know about this, right?

Sure thing. For the Rose/Doctor one, anything in particular? Something like the "glowy kiss" or something more light-hearted?

And Captain Jack...You know about this, right?

Oh, yeah! I can hardly wait. Although we probably won't see it Stateside for at least a year or more.

Companions never last for too long. I still long for Sarah Jane.

The Eccleweccle-whatever Doctor is the absolute first Doctor I could stand for more than 1 episode in a row.

(Well, except for Rowan Atkinson... but that one really doesn't count, does it?)

We’re having a lovely visit with smoakes777.

How long is she in town?

But I do think we’re going to have to call a moratorium on dashing, charismatic guys named Jack.

Yes, really, they're cramping my style...

She's only around tonight, and then tomorrow, she's off to spend time with her family. If you're home right now, we are on our way to Hard Times for dinner. I'll try to call...

Yes, really, they're cramping my style...

You are the original, darling!

This is one of the other people in Avahgdu's head. (I'm Mandrake, you met me first.heh)

Is that scene in your icon of two guys kissing actually FROM an episode of DrWho?

If so, I am going to start watching it myself.LOL

Hi! To tell you the truth, I think you are the only one I actually know. I'm not sure I've been properly introduced to anyone else, have I?

Anyway, yes. That is an actual scene from an episode of the 2005 season. Here is a gallery were someone much geekier than me has documented it nearly frame by frame. Hot boy-on-Time-Lord-lip-lock!
