Can't say I'm thrilled, but then, I said that when I found out that Catherine Tate was joining the show. On the other hand at least I was aware that Catherine Tate had quite a bit of range, and there had been times when Tate had honestly impressed me. Same with Tennant.
I can't say that when it comes to this guy. But then, I said the same thing when Piper was announced as well.
Hmmm. I'll try to keep an open mind.
David Tennant quits Doctor Who
There's been rumors flying around for ages and now it's been confirmed. Despite believing that he's one of the better Doctors' and despite the fact that he's just come off away from his, imo, strongest season in the role, I really think it's time. The 'Lonely god aspect' of the Doctor has been utterly played out and I'm really looking forward to seeing another take on the character.
I'm not sure who I want to see as eleven. I'll trust in Moffat in this instance.
Anyway here's my belated and jumbled thoughts on Doctor Who:
Oh, and happy birthday to sharpest_asp
Well I said I'd find away to do next to nothing and I did. Got some housey worky stuff done, as well as some other bits and bobs, but not anything really worth mentioning. Oh, wait...
I had another flick through Allan Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking. According to everyone who's ever used it, it's supposed to be the greatest book of that particular genre. Be that as it may, I really can't get past Allan Carr's obsession with CAPTIALIZING every OTHER word. It's one of my pet hates when it comes reading, I really don't like being shouted at, not to mention the fact it reminds me of Frank Miller. Heh. FRANK MILLER'S GODDAMN EASY WAY TO STOP GODDAMN SMOKING. You never know, it could happen.
I've been a pretty heavy smoker for the last twelve years and at this point I really want to give up. The really sad thing is, my reason for doing it isn't health related at all, it's more down to the financial aspect of it all. I simply can't afford to anymore, when you're deciding between a weeks worth of groceries, a few nights out or a weeks worth of groceries and a weeks worth of cigarettes, then Huston you have a problem. Yep it's pathetic.
Anyway I'm thinking I might try a helpline next - don't laugh - see if they have any suggestions, other than patches - I can just see myself getting addicted to them instead for some reason. It'd just be like the thing.
In other news, I did a bit of work on several of my fics today. One's not going anywhere, the other is going to get edited to hell, a mini got posted, and I made as start on a couple of others. Whether or not the new ones see the light of day is another matter entirely.
And on a completely unrelated note, I've decided that in addition to wanting a Adipose soft toy for christmas, I also want a Crazy!Caan toy. How geeky of me.
