The Doctor

I said I would blog about this last night, and it has admittedly been a while since I wrote a blog, so here's me being geeky as usual and blogging about some geeky thing that happened to me.

Last night we were at the pub, well Stef, Steve, Brendan and I were, doing our usual tuesday night trivia thing, and sitting at the next table was THE DOCTOR. As in, Doctor Who (although those who watch it will know that his name isn't actually Doctor Who, it's just The Doctor). Some guy who looked and acted amazingly like David Tennant (aka the tenth Doctor) had taken it upon himself to dress like him too. Navy blue single breasted pinstripe suit and red hi tops...I'm *pretty* sure it wasn't a coincidence, although if it was, damn that was a funny coincidence. I didn't have the guts to go up and say something but if I did I would have run up to say 'what, back from Raxicoricophalapotorius already?'.

Oh and has anyone else heard the rumour about a Doctor Who movie!?!!?!! Apparently Rose might come back for it...which I would so love, The Doctor/Rose was the best pairing EVAR. I still haven't seen much of this series with Martha, I've missed most of the middle of it, although I did see Blink and the last three episodes with the Master (although maybe I should've waited, because I didn't get most of the storyline about Professor Yana etc.). And I'm really interested to see this new series with Catherine Tate as the companion...what was her character's name again, Donna? Should be very interesting/funny. Would be wonderful if the ABC would screen it at the same time as the BBC starting with the Christmas Special but I somehow doubt it...

baching it up

Byron and I are by ourselves in the house until the 15th of October as our parents and Kathryn are in China. Unfortunately there will be no wild parties, because we both work weekends, and we're the kind of people who like nothing better than a quiet night in, with a nice dinner and an early turn-in. However last night we had a fun night, had Brendan, Steve, Alana and Pat over for dinner, we did a roast pork and trimmings thing, it turned out pretty well for two people who can't really cook all that well. Also I was in bed by midnight, I like that. I'm still up tonight because I'm waiting for my hair to dry, but I'm this close to going to bed anyway. I worked tonight and I'm working tomorrow, so I need some sleep. I have hot tea to hopefully keep me awake a bit longer though. And a giant freddo, although I might save that for a real emergency.

Tonight I used Skype for the second time ever. I have a good friend/fren Julie, who lives in Texas, USA. She and I have been chatting on msn for more than a year. At first it was your standard tragic fan fare, what's your favourite album, what do you thinkt he lyrics here mean, that sort of thing, which is really interesting to discuss, but there's only so many times you can dissect a song. She and I chat a few times a week and now pretty much just talk about anything. Anyway, she mentioned recently that despite the fact that we've been chatting for more than a year, we don't know what the other person sounds like, so tonight I called her on Skype as a surprise. She answered the phone with 'ma? Is that you?' and I thought 'shit, I have the wrong number,' but it was 7:30am her time, and there's not many people who call at that hour. She has a higher voice than I expected, and apparently I have a lower voice than she expected, but it was great to finally hear each other.

anyway I'm really tired, and hardly know what I'm typing right now. I'm goign to finish my ta and go to bed.
