doctor who & things  

I am reminded to announce that sadly, I will not be attending MeCon this year. The world has not conspired to permit it. Mean ol’ world.

I’ve been re-watching series 2 Doctor Who, having just recently re-watched the first series. I thought David Tennant had seriously channeled Christopher Eccleston for at least a few episodes, but in re-watching, I gotta say, nope, Ten’s very much his own man straight off. Also, the bit in The Christmas Invasion where he’s still in Nine’s clothes really, really echoed poignantly forward (or back) to the end of series four, I said, hopefully cagily as to avoid spoilers. And “The Girl in the Fireplace” is still a great episode. Man. And one of these days I’m going to fly the geek flag really high and do a fan video…

I have also been feeling the urge to commit art, and have found that I’ve lost my nice tidy set of graphite pencils in their nice silver box. And the eraser that was stuck to the box. And I don’t know what to draw. I’m not a good enough artist to draw things out of my head, I need pictures to work from. Mutter mutter whine bitch moan. :)

I sent a couple of mails, which Reece thinks have gotten lost in the ether - is this so?

Love the icon, that's just massive!

No, I'm just LAME.

*goes to answer your email* O.O

(isn't it awesome? I snurched it from somebody, but the credits are in my userpics. :))

Lame is good, it saves my typing fingers... heh!

I like this icon too but the hair seems a tad... long...

Yeah, well, I can't remember where I made the lil image, so I can't make a new one! :)

Did you see the Children in Need special where Rose and the Doctor have a little chat just after the change to Tennant? It's heartbreaking.

I haven't seen that, although I've heard of it. I've got to find it. I'm sure it's on YouTube...

If it is, definitely check it out. It might be my favourite part of that whole era.

I bought myself a Doctor Who sonic screwdriver to celebrate getting a bonus at work. It's a rather cheaply made toy, but I still enjoy pointing it at doors and making it go all sonic.

I want one of those too. Ehehehe. :) Aberdeen had one and I had way too much fun playing with it. *beams*

Sad that you aren't going to MeCon...I was thinking of going but then life interfered too so I'll save my money for holidays instead. And so will manage to hopefully see you for your FP signings.

I've come to love the good Dr. only recently because the show never aired in South Africa. So living in the UK has made up for that gap in our lives = yay.

I hope your arty creativity doesn't do your head in. Have you ever been to visit Terri Windling's site? This is her site: http://windling.typepad.com/blog/ - I can barely draw a stick figure but love her writing and art.

Ooh, I hope we do see each other in London! That would rule. :)

I have never been to Terri Windling's site. I shall check it out! Thank you!

Sorry to hear you won't be at Mecon. I'll be there on Saturday and was hoping to buy you a pint and have a chat. All the best.
