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 hope the stomach upset has passed now? And well done on the Christmas shopping! It always feels good to get some of it done, especially nice things like that.

It's finally decided to be cold over here, after weeks of scarily mild weather - so of course, today has been all hail and snow and sleet and rain and cold winds with freezing temperatures tonight, because why break us in gently?? ;-)

I have a few more significant purchases to make, and a lot of Christmas and holiday cards that I want to send out. I truly hope that those things won't end up on The List That Never Got Taken Care Of. Heh.

We had snow all night and through a great deal of today. Now it's settled down. I don't expect the snow to stay on the ground, since rain's forecast for later in the week (yay, Thanksgiving Day slush) but after a scarily mild autumn, I'll gladly put up with this. I'm sorry that you've had the hail and the sleet. Argh - stay warm!
