In which I squee like a fangirl

Today I got my Sean Patrick Doctor Ten doll! He's so cute, in his pinstripe suit and little Converse shell-toes, with a teeny little sonic screwdriver. (He doesn't come with glasses!)

So now I want the cute little Dalek bottle stoppers. Hee. Or the Doctor Nine/Ten "regeneration action figures." Or the RC K-9! And here I've been trying to clear such claptrap OUT of my house...

I've been trying to wrap my mind around the intricacies of Indian naming practices -- no wonder Apu has such a tremendously long surname. I need a book on the subject, rather than just Wikipedia, I suppose. Just tiny things that will likely never be used, but are interesting to ME, which I need to know for background, as Matt is (heritage-wise) Irish/Apache/Swedish/Indian, so I'm naming his mother's family... Fascinating stuff.

Official weight this morning: 159. That makes it:


As often happens, though, I'm CRAVING chocolate. I have been following the advice, though, to give in to cravings when I have them, just have a couple bites of said craving so it doesn't build up and cause serious binging, and that seems to be working. I had a handful of chocolate almonds and now I'm satisfied.

This weekend I made slow-cooked pork roast - a small pork butt rubbed LIBERALLY in a BBQ rub mix (I'll have to see if I have the recipe around still) overnight in a bag, then slow cooked in the terra cota roaster most of the day at 250 degrees. Then when it was completely cooked, I pulled it apart with a couple of forks, put in some water (it was getting dry by then) and let it cook some more before putting it on rolls for sandwiches. We ate them with tater tots and peas. Yummy! Then I made little chocolate chip scones (I'm going through the new Kitchenaid baking book). All very successful.

"Why are there no tall buildings in Beirut?" *sigh*

Re: Doctor Ten doll
He's not very expensive (the rate of exchange seems to be pretty even right now): I got him here, and it cost around $29, with shipping from England.

Any time you're in town, I'll whip 'em up. *g*

Yay on the weight loss! I weighed myself today and went back on my diet. I need to double-check my weight on your scales. Either my scales are terribly off, or I weigh a lot less than I thought.

If you pick up a book on Indian naming practices, I'll read it, too. :-)

That's why I check on three different scales! *g* At home I can be naked, so that's one weight (149 yesterday); at the gym, in gym clothes w/o shoes, I dropped to 154; at the office, in slacks and cowboy boots, that 159.

The Wikipedia article was very interesting, but it's HIGHLY convoluted, especially considering the various languages and the differences between Sanskrit and Hindi, etc., etc., plus add in Western influences and leftover British culture...!

Came out really good! Very simple, too.
