gip + meme + invitation to lurkers

mood: awake

GIP: I am very fond of David Tennant and his Tenth Doctor. Such silliness, done magnificently! So far, I haven't found any good fic, as I like my Rose and Doctor relationship to stay non-sexual, so I wish they'd get Captain Jack back for a few episodes, that would be spectacular.

Meme, gacked from all over: How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something and you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know? How many times have you felt guilty asking a close LJ friend a question that should be obvious?

Well, here's your chance.

If you've missed a few things, missed an entry and are confused, ask me anything. Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irritated at any of the questions - we've all missed things before.


Invitation: specifically to lurkers: come out of your shells and say hi, ask a question if you're curious.

WARNING: ip address checking is on and anonymous comments will be screened. I've just been a little weirded out by some fandom kerfuffles. Also, I won't answer questions that are too personal, because this is an unlocked post.

I *like* this new doctor, I think he's just about perfect and the inter play with Rose spot on. Christopher Eccelestone (sp?) was a little too over te top for my tastes although I did really enjoy that series.

About 20 times a day!! I even had to ask someone recently what a blog was.

And silly BBC: they could charge us and we'd happily pay a couple of bucks to buy the episodes, instead of getting them under the table.

Capt. Jack will be back in the 3 season, plus his own show is upcoming! I'm seriously orgasmic about the thought of that show.

I will probably just keel over dead when Jack comes back. Maybe I'll do it now, save time.

We can revel in it and not die, that sounds like a better plan ;-)

Much better plan, yes. And we'll miss a lot less this way, too. :)

I'm still wallowing in season one - I'm up to Father's Day on my second viewing - since I really don't feel ready to leave the Ninth Doctor behind yet!

Mind you, I'm being slowly converted to David Tennant even without having watched a full episode - snippets here and there and just the beginning of the episode commentaries have been enough to make me really quite, um, interested... I do like his Scottish accent. Mind you, I love Christopher Eccleston's accent. "Lots of planets have a North." *snerk*

I need a Doctor icon. Ninth Doctor. For now. ;)

He's not using his Scottish accent much, except as a sort of joke in the latest ep.

But he really is darling and very cheering to watch.

well, it's not really something that you would have posted anyway, but i'm curious, if you don't mind saying: i know you do something terrifyingly smart with computers as a job; what other work have you done in your time?

also, yes. well i'm with you on the doctor/rose, not for me. but i'm, um, writing some doctor/hp cross-over gen!fic at the moment! it's utterly crap and only 800 words in, but um.

ah, i love resumes like that. everything from grot to glamour! and i actually find it interesting to see how people get from high school to the job they have at 30 or 40, it's very often surprising how random a path it is.
