e :: my dear watson

oh and happy halloween i guess

I see Livejournal is messing with stuff again. I haven't had the option to try the new friends page and I don't particularly want it, but I'm sure it'll be foisted on me soon. Along with ads, apparently? My paid account doesn't expire until next September, which is beyond the point they're apparently planning to "take away" paid accounts, so... I don't know. I do know most of my icon packages are expiring later this month, I think, and I haven't really decided what to do. On one hand, BUT I'VE SPENT SO LONG COLLECTING SO MANY NICE ICONS. On the other hand, my flist is a ghost town, it's only getting worse, and if LJ really is taking away paid features and all this other stuff I don't really know if I will need or want the privilege of 200+ jpgs on this site. I dunno. It's not like I have much disposable income with my ~funemployment~ right now.

Livejournal, you make me sad. I don't want you to die. I like to have discussions that aren't in reblog format. WHAT IF I EVER WRITE FIC AGAIN? WHERE WILL I POST IT? Boooooo.

In unrelated news, Collapse )

I never posted about last week's TV but I liked all of it especially Elementary which was fab and my favourite episode yet hooray.

Did anyone but me, Tay and Hannah bother watching the s4 premiere of Misfits? I have a lot of thoughts but I'm not sure I want to type them all out for an audience of 0. Collapse )
dw :: doctordonna :: what is this place?

and then i watched hamlet for the second weekend in a row

I. One of the funniest texts I have ever received:
Actually Im pretty wasted but that doesnt make u less beautiful


HOW SWEET.

II. I feel like the existence of Tumblr results in far fewer people making pretty icons these days. I can see why, I guess, if you made graphics it might be more rewarding to get a zillion notes on a gif than half a dozen comments on eigthty icons. BUT WHERE ARE MY INSPECTOR SPACETIME ICONS, INTERNET? Conform to my needs!

III. Tay, Hannah and I learned that Eccleston's character in GI Joe is Scottish and decided to investigate immediately. Some kind person had compiled all his scenes so we only had to watch 14 minutes of GI Joe and not 2 hours, which was worth it tbh.

IV. INTERNET, YOU SO BORING ON SUNDAYS. I guess there is Misfits later. Not sure how I feel about this season, although referring to the two Rudys as Ten and Eleven is providing me entertainment.

V. Frances told me to do the top 5 meme so I am doing it:

Give me a list of fandomy top 5 things to do, you know, top 5 episodes or whatever you've all done this meme before and I am just making up the description right now on the fly.

VI. This post is boring, so have a gif:

misfits :: fuck you mate

this is definitely an "I am bored" post

I. Omfg lol @ writer's block today:

You're on a crashing plane and your partner is fast asleep. Would you wake her/him up to say 'I love you' one last time or let her/him die in her/his sleep?


Really, lj? HOW DOES SOMEONE SLEEP THROUGH A PLANE CRASH?

II. Mindy Kaling confirmed the Catherine Tate guest spot on her Twitter:



Huzzah!

III. I wrote my first exam today. It was alright; I was not super pleased with the paper I got back afterwards. Fuuu. I feel like the amount of effort I put into something is irrelevant because it all winds up being the same anyway. Ready for the semester to be over for real -- 2 exams left, plus a paper I do not want to write.

IV. Also, I am pretty jealous of everyone who go9t to go to the NYC screening yesterday. It looks like a lot of fun. Also, I saw someone who went to the signing event say that Karen Gillan said she loved their hair. Um, new life goal: have hair complimented by Karen Gillan. I mean, seriously. That's like having your hair complimented by the GOD OF HAIR.

V. So it would seem Robert Sheehan leaving Misfits to go do stuff like Season of the Witch. My expectations for s3:



I hope he makes it up to me by being in that awful movie with Karen Gillan.
dw :: ten :: aloha

this is really just a post about icons

I am back at school ugh. I am pretty sure I had something else to say but now I cannot remember it so Collapse )

Anyway, I guess if you want me to pick six of yours you can comment and I will.

Also, what's this I hear about series 6 not starting until Easter? EASTER IS LIKE THE 24TH OF APRIL OR WHATEVER. Ugh BBC. Why are you the way that you are. How am I supposed to spend the rest of my April? STUDYING FOR EXAMS? Pshhhh.

ETA: OH I remember what I was going to post. I was going to promote d_r_meta, a ~shiny new discussion comm centered around (duh) Doctor/Rose with weekly discussion points etc. Your mods are myself, firstofoct, shinyopals, mrv3000 and fauxkaren. So if you like Doctor/Rose and also like telling the internet how right you are, you should go join.

FANDOM MEME FULL OF TOTALLY UNPREDICTABLE ANSWERS

Stolen from basically everyone at this point, the ~2010 fandom meme~

1. Your main fandom of the year: Doctor Who. SURPRISE.

2. Your favorite film this year: Toy Story 3, tbqh. Everything else I basically just moderately enjoyed. Toy Story 3 made me cry like three times.

3. Your favorite book this year: Ummm the Pullman books, I don't know which one in particular. Pullman is sort of an interesting writer and I think I enjoyed his stuff more now than I would have as a kid, I think I would have found it boring as a kid. But as a ~scholar of English literature~ I enjoyed the ideas/etc. I liked Tiger in the Well a lot even if it was OOTP-levels of frustrating to read. HDM was good too.

4. Your favorite album or song this year: The "Lungs" album by Florence + the Machine. Pretty much every song on there was my favourite song for a portion of this year. Right now I am rocking out to Howl.



I bet it is on a billion Rose Tyler fanmixes and if it is not it should be.

5. Your favorite TV show this year: Well this kind of goes along with my favourite fandom, doesn't it. But in terms of shows I ~discovered~ this year hmmm, probably Community. It is like a comedy tailor-made for me! I also really liked Secret Diary and Misfits, though. So 3/4 for you, Britain.

6. Your favorite LJ community this year: Is it bad to just say a bunch of comms I mod? OH WELL. starwhales is fab.

7. Your best new fandom discovery of the year: lol I don't even know what this means. I didn't really... discover a new fandom? I... am glad I started watching Community/Secret Diary/Misfits?

8. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year: Omg both HIMYM and The Office were so bad at the beginning of this year/the end of their last season. They've both sort of picked themselves up again in the subsequent seasons, but still. Turning away in shame.

9. Your TV boyfriend of the year:


10. Your TV girlfriend of the year: I guess this is supposed to be a character from 2010 eh? Or from a show I watched in 2010? W/e I will go with Hannah Baxter. She is self-described as not a very good girlfriend but I am sure we can work something out.



When does this show come back? That must be soon right? Yess.

11. Your biggest squee moment of the year: LOL probably watching EOT on New Year's. That totally counts for all of 2010 okay.

12. Your most missed old fandom: lol I only have one old fandom. BUT I was feeling pretty nostalgic for Harry Potter this summer, while reading MRHP. I reread Deathly Hallows and read a Lily/James fic yesterday and everything. My love for Harry Potter is ancient and forever.

13. Your fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? I am not really eying any fandom with interest. I am waiting for Katniss Everdeen to be cast so I can nom popcorn gifs and watch the wank like I did back in the day with Robert Pattinson? I might watch the rest of Vampire Diaries so I know what everyone is talking about but I sense it will be another Merlin for me. I have also given passing consideration to Being Human anddd... I'm pretty sure there was another show but it's since slipped my mind.

14. Your biggest anticipation of the New Year: I am always excited for more Doctor Who. Also Secret Diary (though omg no Bambi, crying forever) and I guess Misfits when it finally returns in a year f u Britain.

WELL that was fun.
