hello, 2009!

Even though I worked through the holidays, it was still hard to get up and go to work this morning.  It was actually kinda nice in the office the last 2 weeks -- no crowd waiting for the elevators, no partners or managers bothering you, no clients calling you for stuff, we turned on the music and actually got some work done.

It was Big News days at the office this morning -- one co-worker announced she's pregnant (yay!) and another announced he got engaged (double yay!)  All that good news was an excellent way to start a Monday.

So, Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor.  I'm liking it.  At first, I was a tad disappointed they went the male caucasian route again but the more I watch Matt's interview, the more I like him.  Love the talking with his hands, especially the finger waggle when he's trying to think of what to say.  The hair can be cut/tamed.  He rocks a pair of glasses.  The eyebrows do exist but they're really light.  I'm looking forward to meeting Eleven although I may shed a tear saying goodbye to Ten.  Now that Eleven has been revealed, the speculation is on for his companion.  And I really can't wait to see Capt Jack's reaction =)  In the meantime, downloading Party Animals to acquaint myself with some of Smith's work.

The Dr Horrible DVD was released to Amazon and I was thisclose to ordering it off the US site and just paying the damn shipping but yay for Amazon.ca for coming through!  We're getting it a few weeks later but I can deal with that.  I can't wait to hear Commentary, The Musical.

Jersey Boys.  Excellent and highly recommend it.  I was "singing" Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry and Oh What a Night for days after.

I'm LOVING the auto-complete tag feature.  Thank goodness they finally got that working.

How wrong is it that my first thought upon hearing the news was not what kind of Doctor he will be, but that Captain Jack is going to look so very OLD next to him?

Yeah, I actually looked around to figure out how to get it to do that.. and never figured it out, lol. which must be why I have so many tags, some of them quite redundant... D:

And oh hey, are you planning to go to the con in Chicago?

I was so anal about having duplicate tags, I would have 2 tabs open, etc. This is so much easier.

Yep, planning on Chicago Con. You thinking about it?

Start saving those dollars! It does add up and those greedy bastards at Creation don't help any with their huge prices. BUT it's a lot of fun and you've got to do it at least once!

Ummm I'm trying to rationalize me GOING, so help me? I'm seeing also that there's going to be another con in the summer in vancouver.. Maybe I should go to that instead? IDK. Where can I get more info so I can be less indecisive? AND IF I'M GOING I AM SO GOING WITH YOU SOMEHOW.

Well, flight to Chicago is cheaper than to Vancouver. I haven't seen any info on the prices for the Vancouver Con so can't compare. For Chicago, the gold packages are already sold out but personally as are the photo ops for Jared, Jensen and J2. If you really want photo ops (and who doesn't?) maybe it's worth waiting for the Vancouver info to be released and attend that one.

I'm not helping, am I? Of course you're coming with me and you can meet my crazy group of friends.

Okay. Okay. *breathes deep* I'm going to go for the August one in Vancouver, since there's no school around that time and I can poke at my parents until they let me go... I mean, during the summer I have no reason NOT to go, right? Are you possibly attending that one too?

I can't wait to hear about the Dr. Horrible commentary. I don't know anyone who's watched it yet.

I've been reading the TWOP thread but NOTHING! Just talk about the easter eggs, a couple of "the commentary was awesome!" and blah blah wah wah about Amazon. I need details!

I was JUST thinking yesterday that I need to get Dr. Horrible on DVD (I've been watching Firefly, which made me think of it) and wondered if it was out yet! Yay, I have a small credit on Amazon, so I might go get it soon!
