Hey look at me, I'm a target!

Okay, that episode was EPIC. Just...yeah. Thank you, Steven Moffat. I mean hell, there were even weevils. I adored the start of this episode, the continuity of referencing characters and scenarios from earlier in the series; I love that there's an alliance of all the "baddies" and I love how it still manages to be fun. He's got a good touch for balancing humour with action. The overall execution was brilliant as well. There are some discrepancies (of course) but it's just such a clever twist...but still, I'm not going to cast a final verdict till I've seen the next one. Aaaaah. Actually, the Torchwood fan in me is just happy. Yeah, I know that doesn't make sense, but whatever, I can't help it.

There was goblin, or a trickster. Or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it or hold it or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

I hate the good wizards in fairy tales, they always turn out to be you.

People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces...Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely. And if something can be remembered, it can come back.

Best thing about Who fandom though? No one can ever agree on what they like. I find that really amusing, everyone always likes something else - that's good I think, as long as everyone allows each other to like what they want, of course.

While on the topic of Who, I kinda want the Eleven Doctors Collectors Set, not that I have anywhere to put it.

Anyway, last night post-wedding, the girls and I were sitting around chatting and discussing the future - we've come to the conclusion that going overseas for some length of time is definitely something we want to do. So, depending on R's study commitments, we will be relocating to the UK for a year either in September, or November. That's the current plan at least. We're looking at six months in Cardiff, six months in Ireland somewhere (possibly Galway) - sticking to towns with a lot of universities (for work and possibly study purposes). Obviously, it'd be a working holiday type trip. But yeah. Hopefully we can organise it. I feel it's something I need to do, and I think they feel the same. We never had a gap year, and we might as well go out and get the experience while we still can. Might get a book out of it too. I realise that it's still over a year away, and things can change in that time, but we seem committed to it at this time and I thought I'd just put it out there.

Now it's back to Changes, the latest Dresden Files novel. Still to grab me really, but it's early chapters yet.

Music: Numb3rs
Mood: Cold


  1. I'd just like to quietly mention that you might want to live in London...

  2. Doesn't matter where I live in the UK, I'll always come visit.
