Weekendness - in which I write too many long sentences

I went proper shopping for the first time in ages yesterday, and came home with Gosford Park, Bend it Like Beckham and Robbie Williams Live at Knebworth on DVD, that book about ships and dragons, Temeraire and a new, hip (I hope) red and white striped shirt. I would like to publicly thank nawl_v for being a faithful shopping companion as I ducked into stores that were two minutes from closing and insisted in trying things on.

Last night we watched bit of Robin Hood: Men in Tights and all of the first Harry Potter. I love the latter movie; all the kids are SO WEE!

There was also Doctor Who: Army of Ghosts. HOLY SHIT!

Nawl warned me there was BIG THING going to happen and I thought I knew it but y'know what I wasn't expecting? DALEKS. I was like ZOmgWtFBbQ!!1!. Except not in sticky caps.

But now I've slept on it I'm all cynical - is it a pure grab for ratings, putting the Doctors two greatest enemies (as far as I know, anyway, but then again I'm a newbie in this fandom), the Cybermen and Daleks, in the one episode? Sure, it creates drama, but it also causes intense fangirl stress and worry. HOW WILL THEY GET OUT OF IT THIS TIME? Except we all know Rose won't. Not sure how I feel about that yet.

Mickey is so a goner. I can tell because he had an awfully good line when he pulled out that big mofo gun. He's so heroic. Oh Mickey, you so fine!

And the other awesome thing about this ep? Jackie/Doctor OTP! She kissed him onna lips! Lucky cow. I could hear nostalgia_lj cheering all the way from the Northern Hemisphere.

Next week's final is gonna be awesome.

Also I had a dream about Luis from Passions. I have no idea if he is still on it (or if that show is even still going, to tell the truth), but I'm talking Hot, Hot, Hot Luis from about 5-6 years ago when I was still at uni and had time to watch soaps. And before I gave up in disgust when it turned into a whole wacky God vs. the Devil wankfest between Kay and that blonde thing. Whassherface. Harmony? Can't remember. Anyways, doesn't matter. The point is, it was a GREAT DREAM.

ETA: Did I mention this guy is HOT, HOT, HOT? I believe I did.
