Watching "Day of the Doctor" in a theater full of Whovians is one of the BEST THINGS EVER. Oh yeah, also while wearing my Ten shirt and "sand shoes."
ringsandcoffee: (OMF the interview)
Seeing Paul McGann in "Night of the Doctor" made me want to watch Our Mutual Friend again. Paul was, and is, Eugene Wrayburn to me. When I initially heard he was also the Eighth Doctor, I was a bit skeptical. However, NotD has convinced me otherwise. Still, I love him best as Eugene. [livejournal.com profile] holbytla still gets credit for convincing me to watch OMF. [livejournal.com profile] msantimacassar, I'm sure you've seen it too. If not, you need to! Totally worth the 5 hours.

Goals I accomplished this summer: sing karaoke, read a book, try new recipes.

Goals I still need to finish: be ready for the school year to start, finish watching Firefly.

Unexpected accomplishments: weekend in Flagstaff (which felt like a vacation), spoiled the movie Serenity via a Nerd HQ video on YouTube, and spent way too much money.

My digital camera has officially bitten the dust.

I just got totally distracted and started watching the Doctor Who panel from Comic Con. Going to continue that now...

Last night, I was at a party with 6 girls and one guy. The guy happened to be the roommie's boyfriend who was a bit tipsy. This made for interesting conversation. The rest of us being single, we started listing requirements for guys we'd want to date. At this point, mine are male, has a job, and Christian. Well, then we added he can't live with his parents. Doesn't even have to be good looking! Ha ha. Sigh. Not asking too much, am I?

My friend posted this on my FB wall a few days ago. I find it somewhat accurate.

And then there's this, which also holds somewhat true.

Possibly changing my mood theme. About 2 of you will care, but still, which one should I go with?

Tomorrow is the last day of school. It hardly seems true, probably because I don't have my own class this year.

Ummm, brain not working. Still kind of stuck on Doctor Who, but have also watched So You Think You Can Dance and Call the Midwife.

Usually all anal about italicizing names of things, but can't be bothered to right now. Don't care.

Long day tomorrow and Friday. Um, brain not working any more. Yeah. LOL.

More coherent post...Saturday perhaps?

Cleaned the bettas' homes today. They seem happy. :) Love my fishies!

Drama at work. Not affecting/involving me, but still, drama.
Contracts this week, we hope.
Avoiding Doctor Who season finale spoilers, or trying to. Miss Tumblr though.
Chocolate chips and pomegranate Craisins make a delicious dessert.
Swam today since it's too hot to walk. 3 sets of 10 laps. Tough-ish, but felt I could have done more.
7 days of school left.
So You Think You Can Dance season 10 started tonight, yay!
I have housework I'm avoiding.
Nerves on and off about teaching 5th grade.
Need to catch up a couple days on Bible reading.
Feel like journaling (on paper) but can't motivate myself to actually do it.
Phone is missing - think the roommate took it by accident. I miss it! Oh, and I needed to call and text people.

Must avoid tumblr...I do not ship Eleven and Clara...I will not ship Eleven and Clara...RIVER SONG IS HIS WIFE!!!

It's just that that ep is proving to be quite gif-tastic, and I might start begging for icons (looking at you [livejournal.com profile] msantimacassar or [livejournal.com profile] holbytla)

Ha ha, [livejournal.com profile] holbytla how have I not dragged you into Doctor Who fandom yet??? Or any of the rest of you for that matter???
ringsandcoffee: (awesome)
I totally Doctor Who-ified my phone this evening. Ring tone and alert sounds all from the show. www.zedge.net is AWESOME.

Still no DW icon yet. Working on that.
ringsandcoffee: (N&S Thornton listens)
Every so often, and entire day of friends, junk food, and movies is not only acceptable but necessary. Wives and Daughters and North and South make for hours and hours of fun. Yelling at annoying characters, looking up actors on IMDb, and failing to keep our fingers out of the chip bowls.

We tried to watch Much Ado About Nothing but Netflix doesn't have subtitles. We couldn't translate Shakespeare in our heads fast enough to keep up with the plot.

But, today is back to real life, chores, etc. This is actually ok with me. Maybe I'll fit in an ep of Doctor Who.
ringsandcoffee: (Jack says wait)
Oh, David Tennant. You've got some big shoes to fill. Christopher Eccleston was *my* first Doctor, and has left me with a minor crush. You'd better be as good as he was!

Ahhh, fangirling. I need to go find a Tardis icon now. Oh wait. I swore (to myself) I'd clean the kitchen after finishing Doctor Who Confidential. So, I will.
ringsandcoffee: (Sherlock both smile)
Fangirl release. You've been warned.

-I watched all of The Office UK pretty much because Martin Freeman is in it.
-Holy carp THE HOBBIT part 1 in December! I didn't even like the book that much!
-Today is Benedict Cumberbatch's birthday.
-I have the same blue/green/gray/yellow, change-colors-depending-on-my-shirt eyes as Benedict.
-The taxi driver in "A Study in Pink" looks sort of like my dad.
-Watching Bleak House with my roommate, I suddenly realized that Mr. Smallweed is played by the same actor as the taxi driver in ASiP by recognizing his front teeth.
-I got a call from some random number. Instead of silencing the phone, I let it keep playing the Sherlock ringtone.

On this trip, I have:
baked brownies and strawberry cake
saw cousins I have not seen in many years
watched all 14 episodes of The Office U.K. (infinitely more Martin Freeman love now)
camped in Yosemite (but still haven't seen any bears)
NOT been to Target (gasp!)
only been to Peet's twice; 3 times if you count the Peet's/ice cream place in Yosemite
finished the book Emma and Knightly
Eaten dinner at Max's (yum) and Luna Loca (Mom likes it, I think it's ok)

Tonight, I ate pie and watched SYTYCD. Lots of good dancers this season.

Tomorrow, I will see Allison in Santa Rosa. Friday I will see some Sac friends.

Need to upload pictures from my camera, but it's 11pm. Later, later.

EVERYONE! The first episode of Sherlock (S1 - "A Study in Pink") is FREE on iTunes this week! Free!!!! Exclamation points!!!! I cannot contain myself!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!
ringsandcoffee: (bouncing elephant)
[livejournal.com profile] ewanspotter was (hopefully) entertained by my frequent texts as I watched the season finale of Sherlock. If you haven't already, you should watch the show. Both seasons have only 3 episodes, and you can watch S2 online through June 19th. S2 makes more sense if you've seen S1, but you may still be entertained if you can't access it. Also, having seen the 2 Sherlock Homes movies with Robert Downey Jr. helps, but isn't necessary.


ringsandcoffee: (Aragorn's Vader moment)
A friend posted on FB that 2 of her friends (turned out to be mother and daughter) saw the stars of Star Trek at a Hooters near my hometown. As in, the next city south. I haven't seen ST, and dunno if I ever will, but BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH was there! This sighting coincides with the new Sherlock episodes airing this month. I have a minor crush on Benedict (thanks [livejournal.com profile] ewanspotter for thrusting the S1 dvds into my hands!) since seeing him as Sherlock. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY am I not back in my hometown so I can stalk a celebrity???

Not that I want to go to Hooters by any means, but Benedict!! As soon as I heard they were in the area, I guessed they were filming at Livermore Lab. I was correct. http://livermore.patch.com/articles/star-trek-cast-spotted-at-hooters
