caturday, and it’s time for groceries

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

So there was that quote from Doctor Who (‘The Empty Child,’ first season with Nine): “Know how long you can knock around space without having to bump into Earth?” “Five days? Or is it when we’re out of milk? I often think about that when I’m trying to decide if I *really* need to go […]

well worth a rewatch

Friday, November 7th, 2014

I think I’ve posted a link to this vid before, but I heard the song ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ on the way to work yesterday and then (of course) had to go find this vid, watch it (at work), and share it with my Doctor Who loving coworker (who also watched it at work). Papa Don’t […]

I just have all these feelings

Friday, August 1st, 2014

One of my coworkers and I have an ongoing (friendly) debate about Doctor Who. I have confessed that I stopped watching after the Pandorica arc with Matt Smith. “But why?” she wanted to know. “It was a good ending point,” I said. “I liked that season.” This seems inconceivable to her. She asked if I’m […]

notes from the week

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

1. this week I am grateful for: fannish coworkers! (One of my coworkers is marathoning Doctor Who, and ‘Blink’ freaked her out, so someone else put this up. There was also a picture of a weeping angel around the corner.) 2. biggest lie of the week: tumblr sent me an email with this subject line: […]

“no spoilers!”

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

My work!neighbor is currently watching (for the first time) Doctor Who — specifically, the second season with the Tenth Doctor. [She has reminded me that you should never watch Doctor Who alone at night.] Yesterday, she said she was up to the two-part season finale. “Does Rose die?” she asked me. And I stood there […]

big tumblin’ news

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

I’ve had a tumblr account for… a long time. Two years-ish? Because the dashboard is awesome and I can follow things to my fannish heart’s delight. (On an only somewhat related note: today at work the coworker who runs our facebook page was brainstorming ways to get more likes. Trying to be helpful, I said, […]

even more lights!

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Latest light count from my drive home tonight: 120 houses with lights up! (AND there were a few that I couldn’t count that I know have had lights on when I’ve gone by later in the evening. Next week I’ll go for a later time, and see if I can edge the count even a […]

Friday, June 8th, 2012

DOCTOR WHO A Complicated Event in Time and Space, by hibernate Circa Tenth Doctor. Donna fixes her […]

recs o’ the day

CHEER And Try To Keep It All The Year, by and_backagain (The Inception AU one where Arthur’s dad is Santa Claus — no longer a WIP!) “Rudolph can’t stand me,” Arthur says immediately. “The last time I tried to give him a carrot he kicked me in the knee and then bit my fingers.” LOVE […]

“it’s not that kind of door!”

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Might I just say, “Thanks!” to all the SPN writers who had a part in the finale ep for season 6. I’m not sure which one of them came up with it, but ohai-get-out-of-jail-free card for getting shanked by an angel blade! It reminds me of Doctor Who, where they came up with the ‘it […]
