I. I saw two plays in the last two days! Sometimes I watch things even though there are no Doctor Who cast in it, I swear. The first was a romcom called Salt Water Moon
and is by some "famous" Canadian playwright. I guess I shouldn't put quotations around famous, given that I can name like, 3 playwrights and two of them have been dead for like four hundred years, so maybe he is famous I guess. Anyway, it was a two-person show about two Newfoundlanders in love~ in the 1920s. They both tried to do the Newfoundland accent, which LOL. It started off slow but I got into it as it picked up. At one point the guy is attempting to make the girl jealous by boasting about all the girls he's dated since her, and she doesn't believe him and is all "PFT YEAH RIGHT WHAT ARE THERE NAMES?" and he's like "HER NAME WAS ROSE" and I loled louder than anyone else and for different reasons.
The second was ~the Scottish Play~ at the other university in town. It was... what you would expect from a college Shakespeare production, with varying degrees of talent within the cast. Macbeth himself was easily the best (and pretty attractive ngl). Lady Macbeth was decent. MacDuff was pretty good. Everyone else... lol. Essentially there was a lot more laughing than one can usually expect from a performance of Macbeth. On the bright side, none of them tried Scottish accents, which I am counting as a win.
II. The friend I saw Macbeth with is one of my few non-internet friends who watches Doctor Who, and hanging out with her is always great because she validates my fandom opinions even though she's not in fandom. We had an animated discussion over dinner about how nonsensical 6x13 was, probably to the wonderment of everyone else at the Quiznos.

IV. I have to write a children's story for my Children's Lit class. On one hand this is exciting, because it'll be the most creative writing I've ever done for my university degree. On the other hand, jfc I can barely write fic anymore, let alone something original, so AHHHHHHHH. I keep waiting for some kind of magical inspiration to strike. It has not.
I miss writing, though. SO I AM GOING TO DO ONE OF THOSE PROMPT MEMES. Except that like I don't actually know any so I'm just going to make some up. Isn't one of them, like, give me the title of a fic and the pairings/characters and I will write a sample of it
? SURE, TRY THAT. Or just give me a standard prompt or quote or whatever IDK, just try and give me ideas and I will try and write something. You all know what I am and am not likely to write so no Michelle this will probably not be the day you convince me to write Ianto/Sherlock.
V. Lastly, ALL THAT SOCIALIZING + a Halloween party tomorrow means I'm probably just going to sit home tonight and watch TV. Fuck yeah. On my list are Midnight
and Waters of Mars
so if anyone wants in on that action let me know.
Anyway, have a gif from the best deleted scene ever:
