multitasking

Also I worked, but that's not fannish.

Fannish things I have done recently:

  • Wrote a draft of my drunken!Giles story. I could have posted today, but I'm grateful for the extension to Jan 11 anyway. It can breathe a bit! Get plottier! Get prawnier! Get drunker!
  • Edited some things in the other big story in progress. Trimming and editing now, to avoid writing the climactic bit at the end. Flinch.
  • Failed to work on my month-late ficathon story.
  • Wrote and deleted a ranty response to a metafandom item from yesterday. Fanfiction can't develop character, forsooth.
  • Watched a whole lot of Doctor Who, classic and modern, with sahiya. This year's Christmas special may be summarized as great concept, cruddy execution, nearly saved by a great guest actor. The final third needed revision by somebody who can write. But I sort of liked it anyway.
  • Observed that Top Gear is on iTMS. Okay, then! Here's my ten bucks!
  • Fixed the trac installation on my server. You can now browse source for ljmigrate and the Dread Machine if you are so inclined.
  • Made the Dread Machine generate year listings, which I will put into my next post. Whee!
  • Current Music: Broken - Nitrous Oxide Mix : Duderstadt, Store N Forward : Broken
Top Gear is love!

And that's a good list of accomplishments indeed.
I'm glad the extension's not going to be long and boring for you! That seems to be the most common reaction (so far) from those who didn't request more time! *G*

Plottier, prawnier, drunker Giles!fic is always a good thing. ::nods firmly::

Which was the Christmas special? I don't usually watch it, but got sucked in a couple days ago and found myself enjoying it more than I expected. Saw two episodes and found myself wanting more, was just wondering if one of the ones I caught was the Christmas ep.
I looked it up. I saw "The Doctor's Daughter" and "The Unicorn and the Wasp."

I'm gonna have to get netflix again just to start from the beginning. On the other hand, every time I find a new show to love, it gets canceled, so maybe I should just forget it...
My friend, Doctor Who has been with us for 45 years, there's a new executive producer planned to take over in 2010, and a year's worth of specials with Tennant coming. And during hiatuses, you can catch up on those 45 years of backlog you haven't seen yet.

Who is one of those strange shows you really don't have to worry about going away. It's kinda cool.
I hope you're right about my powers of cancelation not being a match for Who.

I remember watching it years ago with my dad, but sadly I was never into it that much back then. I've always been meaning to go back and catch up, but was never sure if I was going to start from the very beginning or from the new ones.

Yay for having another show to watch since all the others I loved are going away after this season.
