Dept. of Dr. Who, and You, and Me

It's Friday!!!!

So, first off? The Best Friday Song EVARRRR. Which I will probably intermittently re-post because it always makes the end of the work week particularly wonderful.

Second: I hope everyone is doing well, as November gets ready to start its slide toward December. I'd love to hear what folks are doing.

Third: Much to my own surprise, I actually was able to buy two little Christmas gifts for two friends, and that pleases me inordinately. I bought them from a small independent store, and that pleased me even more. Most of my gifts this year will be donations in peoples' names to various charities, but it's always great to find a little something personal.

Fourth: I was, for the firs time this season, truly disappointed with a Doctor Who episode. "Sleep No More" was, for me, boring, despite a lot of sound and fury; both gormless and formless (something that I've found to be the case with most other Mark Gatiss scripts) and a waste of a lot of nice background world-building. To take an intrinsically interesting idea (lack of sleep and what that does for individuals and their society) and squander it so completely ... it would be a shame in any Dr. Who season, but this season has been, for me, so uniformly good that "Sleep No More" is particularly unsatisfying. Mediocrity, thy name appears upon too many occasions to be Gatiss. I still like "The Unquiet Dead" and "Robots of Sherwood" though.

I am fighting a slightly upset stomach, and gearing up to do my exercises; the stomach might not be a good thing for the exercises - we shall see.

Onward, to Big Ass Martini time!

I need a forklift truck to pick up the cat

Oho! So we're not the only ones to have massive cats of catlike destruction; we've got two massive gingers, both of them over 20 pounds, and one silky black gentleman who's about 18 pounds.

You've gotten a lot of wind? Sounds like you're sitting right at the junction of two weather fronts, both of them battling it out. It, too, shall pass.

Dull - that's the best one-word description of the episode I've heard.

I have a small cat who bulks up every year into an obese beast looking like a giant sausage roll with legs. In summer she's all ribby and in winter I can feel the fat squigging when I pick her up.

It's the most polite description!
