Doctor Who Confidential has been axed →
aikainkauna: WHAT THE FUCK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Does BBC Three need more time slots for Two Pints reruns or something? Boo, I say. Boo. What with the other recent “lololol Tennant was better and now it’s too complicated because it requires me to think or something and Matt Smith is shite because he has no eyebrows” news of lowest-common-denominator woe, it’s been a crap week for Who, especially...

aerdnasarrih | What I don't like →
I reposted last night’s whiny complaints on my Dreamwidth site for discussion purposes. Also crossposted to my LJ. I do it for you, my fans.
What I don't like
I’ve been going through some of the dialogue from some of the this season’s Who episodes that I’ve missed, and I just can’t accept the way the series is turning out so far. My disjointed and possibly incoherent objections are as follows: One: last season we had the universe all restarted and Amy restored to her family and happiness. This season we have clingy, “has...
Ooh, and another one which led straight to a pr0n site! And it wasn’t even pretty pr0n, just crude boring stuff. Blocked and reported.
How annoying. Some spammer “reblogged” one of my posts, which only led me to their spamming tumblog. I blocked them and reported them; nothing else I can do.
Which Doctor am I?
It was impossible to reblog this thing and not make it look like crap, so I just cut and pasted it (I added some commentary, in italics): FIRST [X] You think you’re better than other species (more specifically; humans) [ ] You’ve run away from home [X] You have been bullied (added by me: well, they *tried*) [X] You are frequently sarcastic [ ] You have brown eyes [X] You occasionally wear a cape...
Eyepatch me, baby
You know, I’m kind of hoping that the Doctor’s upcoming “death” is just the death of depressing, depressive, “I’m useless and a danger to all my friends” Doctor, and we get cool, crazy haired, (possibly evil but who cares) Eyepatch Doctor. Who’s with me?
aikainkauna: Also, apologies for that. I shall try to keep ranty text posts to a minimum, but was bored and annoyed. Here, have some undressing Daves instead. Ranty text posts are awesome but so is this. Why, I could write a ranty text post based on the last gif alone. LIke this: TUIHAS YUjsalk;jdfn puanhio;erOPUI09H NGJK LSHNDK Ljngdsklhsdklhf.

mofftiemnao: severusandthedoe: I love River. I do. I love Alex Kingston. She’s brilliant. But the fandom makes me to be embarrassed to be a part of it based on how so many people act. Remember when Rose was really popular, and then Martha came along for Season 3? All the Rose fans were whining and “oh… Blog just wants to express confusion of Blog that “Rosefen” is bad connotation of name....

Some brief thoughts on Classic Who →
I finished Frontier in Space, then watched Planet of the Daleks, and Shada. I have some things to say about the first two. I may get to Shada later though it was only a partially shot serial — still, it had Four and Romana and had several lovely bits. Oh — and Professor Chronotis was a dear. Oh what, another Time Lord that isn’t evil? Unpossible!

When did you start watching the show? In the late Seventies when I was in my late teens. Who is your Doctor? Tom Baker, Doctor No. 4. Favourite companion? Romana I and II. Least favourite companion? ROES. Rose was okay though. From the old show: Nyssa. She wasn’t offensive, but she wasn’t anything. She was just there. Favourite episode? Old show: The Ribos Operation. New...
"The God Complex" what I haven't seen yet
Okay, good, it looks like (spoily spoiler spoilers below) …Amy and Rory go home at the end of this episode. I mean, not that I hated them or anything but I just couldn’t figure out why they were still traveling with the Doctor. They’d spawned his girlfriend (or whatever River Song will end up being) and are married and need to be getting their own lives. Here’s what...

Do you want to read my inane blatherings re Amy and her relationship with the Doctor and fan reaction and so on? Of course you do. You know it. (Warning, spoilers for some episodes though not the last one as I haven’t seen it yet.)
I think I figured out
…why I’ve been put off watching “The Girl Who Waited.” It’s not because I don’t want to see the Doctor be dark or a companion be put through more emotional pain. It’s because I’ve been unwisely reading fan reactions and reviews and I keep seeing the following: “The ending reminded me of the end of ‘Doomsday.’” What can I say....

Okay, I’ve been catching up on some of the new season of Who, but I think I’ll give this latest episode, “The Girl Who Waited,” a pass. For one thing, I don’t need yet another affirmation of Rory and Amy’s love for each other. They’re fucking married. For another, I’m getting tired of “let’s maneuver the Doctor into a situation where he...
Place a letter :D
[I've become addicted to these question things. Hush now.]
A - My middle name
None of your business.
B - My height
Somewhere between 5'3" and 5'4".
C - If I have any siblings
D - My most embarrassing moment
At my age there are too many for one to stand out.
E - My shoe size
F - Do I have any pets?
One, a cat.
G - Age I get mistaken for
At my age... no one will admit to how old they think I am, out of terror.
H - Do I have any tattoos?
I - Do I want any tattoos?
J - My best friend's name
What is a "best friend"?
K - Someone I miss
No one, unless "my mind" counts as a person. Lost that years ago.
L - Something not many people know about me
I'd tell you but then I'd have to kill you.
M - A random fact about myself
I still get zits.
N - Favorite animal
Cat. (I don't dare say otherwise. She's in the room.)
O - Favorite celeb
I don't have a "favorite celeb." They are people, no better or worse than anyone else. I do have several actors I like.
P - Favorite movie/TV show
Q - What kind of phone I have
Cheapass basic cell phone.
R - Do I like my phone?
I just bought it so I'm not sure yet. It seems to work as required, though.

Wavy. Ish. I keep it cut short.
T - Color of my hair
Gray with some dark brown left here and there.
U - Have I dyed my hair before?
V - Do I want to dye my hair and what color?
No. I used to dye my hair but now it seems like too much trouble.
W - My tumblr crush
X - Favorite soda
Coke -- the regular kind; following a close second is the extra spicy, expensive brands of ginger ale.
Y - Favorite letter in the alphabet
I have favorite numbers, but no favorite letters.
Z - Do I want children?
I'm well over the age where I can spawn, but I never wanted kids.

(Ooh, breaking the rules by putting words above the reblog! Anyway, I do love lists.) blogofimpossiblethings: 1. If I had a TARDIS, where/when would I go on my first trip and why? To that day in the Sixties when Cher and Sonny Bono had the sex that resulted in Chastity. So I could stop them from conceiving the person who would become the atrocity known as “Chaz.” (Transvestites...
Brutal honesty hour.
[Caveat: I think "brutal honesty" is stupid, and also code words for "I feel like being a bitch." That being said... ooh! I love me some silly internet questionnaires. I'll *try* not to lie. Heh heh.]
Q: A - If I'm in love.
A: Nope. Not a bit of it. Never have been, never will. Too egotistical, I suspect
Q: B - Who the last person I talked to on the phone was.
A: My roommate, in an experiment to ascertain whether my cell phone was working. (Answer: I can call out, but I can't get calls. Time for a new service, I think.)
Q: C - How long it's been since I've kissed.
A: Yecch. I never do that. Ew.
Q: D - If I have a preference for boys or girls.
A: I'm not a pedophile, so neither.
Q: E - How many holes I have in my ears.
A: I assume this means "for earrings," not the normal ones that lead to the inside parts of the ear. Answer: one each, in the normal place (i.e., NOT the upper cartilage or that flap of cartilage in the middle, or whatever self-torture the kids are into these days).
Q: F - Give me any options, like 'hot or cold?'
A: Hot coffee, cold weather.
Q: G - The last person I said 'I love you' to.
Q: H - The last person I hugged.
Q: I - The last time I felt jealous, and why.
A: I don't get jealous. I'm an adult. No really. FFS, grow up and get your own lives.
Q: J - How old I am.
A: 48. Yep it's true: me and Doctor Who (the show, not the character) are the same age.
Q: K- What my full name is.
A: Dorothea Lancaster McGillicuddy. Not really. What kind of stupid question is that to ask on the internet. (Actually it's not a secret and you can look it up with a little work but why do you care?)
Q: L - If I have siblings.
A: Yes, one.
Q: M - If I forgive betrayal.
A: No, but I forget and move on, after cutting out said betrayer from my life. Life is too short to hang around with people you can't trust.
Q: N - If you want to know how I treat my friends.
A: I don't understand this question. I don't know you, so why would I care how you treat your friends? Or is it, how do I treat *my* friends? If the latter, I try to treat them the way I want them to treat me.
Q: O - If I like my school.
A: Schools in the Western world are structured like prisons, their purpose to train their inmates into becoming obedient little drones of the system. Not that I'm currently going to any school -- thank God -- but I've done a little substitute teaching which only reminded me how I hated school.
Q: P - What kind of music I like.
A: These questions are very badly phrased. Anyway, I like a variety of music. The possible exceptions are polka, and very whiny country music.
Q: Q - What the last party I went to was, and when the next will be.
A: Christmas before last I went to a coworker's Christmas party. I'm not really a party person though I enjoy them if I'm invited. No, I have no plans for any upcoming parties.
Q: R - For me to tell 10 of my curiosities.
A: What? Things I'm curious about? Weird facts about me? What? I think that the person who wrote this was not only a teenager, but one to whom English is a second language.
Q: S - 2 habits.
A: Nail biting. Answering internet questionnaires in a snarky fashion.
Q: T- 5 things I love unconditionally.
A: My cat? Though I don't consider her a "thing." Anyway, you can't really love "things" unconditionally. And no, there aren't any people I love unconditionally.
Q: U - How many texts I send daily.
A: Zero. I have a very simple phone and rarely use it even to call people. It doesn't text.
Q: V - 3 big dreams.
A: Finishing at least one of my novels and getting it published and actually selling a few copies. Being able to travel across the country, stopping at various random places along the way just because. Finishing one of my other novels and etc. I don't think those are "big" dreams, though.
Q: W - An idol.
A: I don't have idols. I do have people whose talents or accomplishments I admire, but I don't worship them for it. We all have feet of clay.
Q: X - If I've done something I regret very much.
A: Going to college. Beyond getting my AA degree, it was a waste of time and money. Or at least it was the way I did it. I didn't even finish, and now don't want to.
Q: Y - If I like my town and why.
A: I've lived here two years now. It's small and in the mountains and was founded in 1747 so it has all the requirements of oldness and not-big-cityness and not-Floridaness that I require. Also it has a rather famous theater and a population of overeducated liberals and therefore several more tony coffee shops and cute restaurants than are usually found in rural mountain towns in the South.
Q: Z - Ask any question you want.
A: What if I don't have any questions? There, answer that.
