Ugh, all that wangst yesterday -- so embarrassing.

Here's some exciting happy smithereening instead:

(wow, hey, a BBC video that's NOT region-locked!)

Goodbye, Ms. Sladen. You were one hell of a classy lady.

I'm not sure how I'm going to tell my 10-year-old nephew about this. He totally adored Sarah Jane and watched every single one of her classic Who serials with Three and Four, and was always excited to bits over upcoming Sarah Jane Adventures episodes. I haven't the heart to tell him there wouldn't be any more. :(

This is mainly for [livejournal.com profile] runefrancisco's benefit, but what the hell.

Why yes, that eye-searing bedspread is mine. I know, how could I sleep on it? But my nephew ADORES it so much, and loves pretending to be a caterpillar on it. Eating the butterflies, and whatnot.

Three Two more days to work on this, as I'm going to the Hard Rock Cafe Heroes and Villains party in Makati on Saturday. Busy fingers!

A super spoilery thought AND VIDEO CLIP from the new Doctor Who series permiere, "The Eleventh Hour". Click at your own peril.

A more coherent and comprehensive review is percolating right now but I just had to get this particular thing out of my head before it ate up all my other thinky thoughts. And yes, [livejournal.com profile] runefrancisco and [livejournal.com profile] peripathetictoo, lots of Amy Pond thoughts for you. Anyway.

Aaaaaaand...there he is. )

Re: Doctor Who: The End of Time, Part 1

HIM: timothy dalton is a time lord
HIM: maybe that's where old bonds go when they stop being james
HIM: they become immortalized time lords
ME: If so...then Sean Connery's Ramirez (Highlander) is in fact a renegade Time Lord?
HIM: yeah, that'd explain a lot of ramirez's behavior, if you think about it
HIM: bizarro dude that he is
ME: James Bond: Where Fandoms Collide?
HIM: and didn't the disowned highlander 2 movie refer to a misbegotten planet that they all hailed from?
ME: So...there can be Only One (Time Lord)? IT ALL MAKES SENSE
HIM: oo no
HIM: kaya dapat decapitation
HIM: to prevent regeneration

  • Went to a christening today. Well, the reception, actually -- I was running around the mall trying to find a suitable gift to give a four-month-old baby boy. My general rule is: Kids below a year old get clothes.

    Trouble is, it's hard to find nice, cute clothing for infant boys. Nearly everything I saw were for little girls. I have to admit, children's clothing has improved drastically since I was a kid. Much prettier, for one. Anyway, I ended up buying a ridiculously cute distressed-T-shirt-and shorts set for a 6+ month-old. Well, when it comes to little kids, it always pays to buy big. They grow up so fast.

  • I adore this shop. It's insane. Everything for P85 ($1.83) and they have a wide variety of things from paper lanterns to kitchen accessories to pretty printed cardboard file boxes to giant knitting needles to car fresheners to jeweled hair clips to striped and non-striped thigh-high socks. Of which I bought two pairs, just for kicks. (ETA: just realized the lameness of that joke.)

  • I'm currently reading Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. As I have only read a couple of Henning Mankells so far before this, I have yet to find out just what makes Swedish crime fiction stand out from other countries' crime fiction.

  • What I really should be reading, however, is Hannah Foster's The Coquette. I refuse to get caught flat-footed in grad class again.

  • I need to watch Doctor Who: The End of Time again. Then all the way back to The Christmas Invasion and the rest of the Tenth Doctor's run. I'm feeling the Ten nostalgia now, oddly enough. Maybe I won't cringe so much over Series 2 (nope, no Rose nostalgia there, no sirree) and I think I've gotten pretty much used to RTD's glaring plot holes that I won't really care anymore.

  • Chuck is coming back! Supernatural is coming back! Burn Notice is coming back! Whee!
Anyway, god. Back to work tomorrow. Sigh.
