The Eleventh Hour


As a Doctor Who fan: SQUEEE!!! He's the Doctor! I love Eleven! Fun story! Very Doctor-y! He wears Ten's suit most of the way through before landing on his own style exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) the way Eight did (stealing out of medical doctor's lockers)! Wheee! I love it!

As a critic: Um, can Steven Moffat tell another story but "The Doctor and the Little Girl"? This is The Girl In the Fireplace with a happy ending, Blink where the Doctor actually gets to be a part of the action. I expect good things from Moffat, and I hope I'm not disappointed. I HATE the new theme song. It's almost as bad as Seven's. New TARDIS looks lovely, though, and there is very good dynamic between The Doctor and Amy. She also comes mostly free of family, although if she really trusts the Doctor to get her back "by tomorrow morning" after waiting for him to come "back in five minutes" for fourteen years, she's nuts.

On the whole? Promising beginning for the next era. Matt Smith is more than a credible Doctor, but he does have to develop his own take on the character and not just be Ten all over again. Although in some scenes he reminded me of Five (Davison), to be honest; it was such a frantic episode, though, it could very easily have been written for Ten (as I said, Girl in the Fireplace with a happy ending). We shall see as the series goes on.


Silhouette looks just like Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon. He's even, well, toothless. I have to get Photoshop installed here and see if I can make an animated gif which will prove this. *grin*

Happy Easter to all who celebrate! We sort of forgot today was a holiday and as such did not do our Costco shopping yesterday and now the coupons have expired because Costco is NEVER open on a holiday (seriously, the best job to have in retail--there's never any turnover at the store we go to; they've had the same crew for years). Phooey.

But we did have a lovely day yesterday, anyway, hanging out around the house with the ever-lovely framefolly, looking at dogs, and then a delicious dinner at The Bluewater Grille and watching the last two hours of The Ten Commandments on ABC.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

The only exciting thing about today is gathering up what seem to be "extra eggs" at the Dragon Cave (something called the "Festival of Eggs" where you gather brightly colored Easter eggs every 12 minutes or so), since Barb's mom is out of town we're not even having a dinner.

Yep, I have a good basketful now. But I can't get a hellfire, a speckled, or one of the changes color in the sun ones. (Or the ones that hatch into the "black as outer space but sparkles" babies.) Worse, because I have been trying, I have now four eggs I don't want because I kept trying and missing.

Nope, nothing in the works now. Our autumn trip this year will be her neck of the woods, and Disneyworld.

I ALMOST got a hellfire, but I "had too many eggs." I never like to abandon them, but by golly, this time I did -- I'm supposed to "meet" with someone to get a Silver this afternoon, but I haven't heard from her.

Sounds like fun! Mom might prove me wrong, but right now all our plans are focused on November. We'll probably end up going at the top of next year (we like to see what the Bellagio has for the Chinese New Year, and I was really sorry to miss the Year of the Tiger; I told her we had to be there in February of 2012 for the Year of the Dragon!).

Yes, the resemblance is uncanny!

It's always so good to go to your house :) . It's one of the homiest homes I've ever known :)

Those were SOME calamari and scallops! And the wine place was awesome!

I still haven't watched the last half of "End of Time". The longer I stretch it out....yeah.

I suppose I should suck it up and watch. Then I can watch these.

On another note, as I'm looking at your icon, we finally watched Sherlock Holmes last night. Great movie. Hope they make another. Good chemistry between RDJ and JL.

Hope youse guys had a great weekend.

The fannish Dr. Who joy I feel from Eleven has almost (almost) smoothed out the nasty taste "End of Time" left me. We shall see if I stay at the high. (I watched some good ol' Doctor Five this afternoon, too.)

I adore RDJ. Since I'm not a big Holmes fan I could love the movie just for itself, but Barb (who has read all the books and IS) liked it, too.
