Dept. of Really, Really Slow Start

Log Jam! Log Jam!

  • Rewatched The Girl Who Waited  and The God Complex  yesterday.
  • Really watched them. Thought about them.
  • Made notes.
  • Made connections. Made sparks spark inside my head and make more connections.
  • Understood why I loved TGWW, from its construction to its heart, and discovered something about Amy as I struggled through my understanding of one crucial scene.
  • Understood why TGC didn't work for me, why I found it creaky in construction and simple-minded in conceit despite stellar bits and pieces and people. Learned a bit more about myself, too.
  • Couldn't write any of it, though. Neck hurt, ankles hurt, hands hurt, skin hurt.
  • Worse, brain shut down when asked to put all the sparks together to make light, to connect all the connections so that they made a road map. Brain said, "No. Don't want to. Look! A computer game! Let's play it over and over and over and over and over -"
  • Went to bed.
  • Today I went to a wedding, and was very happy for the tough and wonderful lady who wed her genial and lovely gentleman. Also rocked the "going to a wedding look."
  • Came home.
  • Couldn't write.
  • Am now behind by two episodes and counting.
  • WTF, brain? WTF?

I'm behinderer than you, and will be behinderererer still, as we only got as far as TGWW before Medical Stuff intervened. And between said intervening and various people's disrupted schedules, we're unlikely to get to see the rest of the season until something like the end of the first week of October, assuming of course that the medical Stuff doesn't get medical-er. (Don't ask. Don't panic. I think.)

Because you ask me not to, I won't. But I hope you can report, as soon as possible, that Medicality has been successfully routed.

Our bodies are such irritable and recalcitrant things, such fucking fragile things.

Is there a word for "otaku" in Whozit-speak?
What is the word for "otaku" in Whozit-speak?

Just because you asked, and because Google translate was right there:

" Dokutāfūterebi bangumi" henjin

The translation is undoubtedly as imprecise as the question. Heh.

Yup, you're an otaku (regarding Doctor Who and anime, and damn good at it, too). Just don't slide down to my level: near-hikikomori.

Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita!

(And you're not hikikomori. You answer the door.)
