Okay, not a word yet about VOTD. Not even sure what I thought of it yet. Need to rewatch tomorrow. On first viewing, more spectacle but less heart than the other two. Is less sometimes more? Possibly, yes. I don’t think I’d want them to throw any more money at the show than they have now.
But I’ll probably change my mind on a second viewing. And yes, I was up at 4.30 am scribbling sketches for a related fic. The bunnies just wouldn’t leave me alone.
Nice Christmas. Very low key. We have a new iMac and if you can fall in love with a piece of hardware I probably have. Been playing around far too long installing widgets – you can even get a DW one from the BBC. Once everything is connected up, we will finally have reached the Nirvana of having a computer each at our disposal in this household. I’m staying with my little iBook, even though it’s getting unreliable and has next to no battery power any more. I like the way you can tuck yourself up in bed with it (I do my best work there). I think I’m gradually gravitating to an entirely bed-bound existence – bring me a cup of tea, someone.
We had one of the funniest and most honest present unwrappings ever. We all said exactly what we thought of each item as it appeared – how many copies of “How to Fossilize Your Hamster” does a 16 year old need, for example? I received (from John) a box of very dark choccies, two huge bath towels for the gym, an Elemis gift set and, best of all, a portable DVD player. My daughter supplied the DVD’s – “The Infinite Quest”. And I have the whole of S3 to enjoy, too. Go away, world.
I have given up on the TV – it is almost permanently hooked up to Super Mario Galaxy at the moment.
DH and DD cooked the Xmas lunch and did a fantastic job. Best roast potatoes we’ve ever had. They have the job in perpetuity now, far as I’m concerned. I would really much rather wash up.
“You Stole the Sun from my Heart” has some perfect Doctor in S3 lines. This brought me close to tears:
I have – I’ve got to stop smiling
It gives the wrong impression
I love you all the same
