Scattered Thoughts

I haven't been around for several days, largely because I've been trying to keep up with my work day story minimums. Since I actually haven't been able to do that very well (I will not be surprised if I get hauled in for a disciplinary meeting sometime in the next month or so, but I'm not overly fussed about it) I figured I'd just do a bullet point list on miscellanea, just to keep my oar in.




  • I got my back X-rayed, checking for possible spinal causes for my back spasms. The upshot; nothing but some unsurprising age-related erosion; I didn't actually expect my spine to be related to the spasms, but at least we can definitely rule it out. I'm dealing with a (so far) mild back spasm right now, and am reminded again that it's a muscular thing.

  • We said goodbye today to our old clunker of a 1996 Taurus; not in the way I wanted to say goodbye to it, but at least we gave it to a charity. I hope said charity can make use of it.

  • I've had no difficulty avoiding the very large spoilers about S8 of Who, and I'm rather pleased that I haven't had the urge to click on dangerous links. I'm perfectly happy to wait for next month. Well, I say perfectly happy, and that's not quite true. I'd like next month to be NOW, kthnxbai, but having attained some painful measure of maturity, I can at least maintain some tattered sense of dignity about the whole thing.

  • I've been reading Captain America fanfic and enjoying it. I don't know what this says about me. Probably it says that I really, really want to see The Winter Soldier again, largely because I want to see Natasha again. And Bucky. And Sam. And Cap. Yeah, bit of a fan, here.

  • I have discovered how much of a fan of Kill la Kill I am. Maybe more about that at a later date. Maybe more about some of the other anime series I'm enjoying, like Barakamon, at a later date as well.

  • I've been thinking a lot about Who, and whose Who I like, and whether I'm in the minority of fans who likes both recent showrunners, for different reasons, and gets uncomfortable when either showrunner gets slagged off (although I confess that I get really irritated when I have to read through "OMG Moffat is Saaataaaaaan" crap, and slightly less aggravated - but only slightly - when I read people being flippant about RTD.)

  • And with that, I'm going to toddle off to bed while my back is relatively pain-free.

Personally, I have stronger love for Moffat, but I'm also more critical of him—I feel rather passionately about his stuff, in positives and negatives alike ;)

I'm more hopeless. I love Moff so much that I'm blind to the cracks in the facade and the inherent structural flaws. I've become so attuned to them that I think of the recycling of stories as simply the retelling of archetypical legends that the world tells itself in cycles. So I'm kind of the world's cheapest date for the Moff. With Uncle Rusty, yeah, more peaceful, although he can tear my heart out and show me some transcendentally wonderful scenes.

(I'm completely sounding like I'm a relationship with Doctor Who. Send help.)

Heh. Me too. Don't send help. I like it.

It's great you can embrace his stuff so much, though! :)

I changed my mind, I don't want help either :D
