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.

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!

I think you actually know me, and have met Avahgdu but not been let in on him being someone else at the time. But your acceptance of our situation is just one of the many reasons we love you.

Aww. You (all) are sweet. *hug*

Avahgdu this time.

As I missed this episode, I MUST see it. Why and how did the Doctor wind up smooching Jack?

It's the season finale, I believe. Jack is about to go off and do something heroic, so he kisses both Rose and the Doctor fairwell. I think the writers intended it as a way to underscore once again (for the normal, straight audience) *NEON SIGNAGE... OMG, Jack fancies both girls AND boys! Get it? He's like, bisexual?..." A bit tiresome really, but hey, I got to see boys kiss :)
