It has been a long month since I last posted, but I haven’t forgotten about all of you <3
Life has been throwing me curve balls left and right, and I am going crazy trying to dodge them all.
Hope everyone is doing great! Everyone stateside, have a fantastic Labor Day weekend!
You can watch the Series 7 trailer here and everything else will be under the ‘more’ .
You were one of the first companions I connected with
from the Classic series.
You’ll never know my appreciation, but you’ll always have
my love and respect.
RIP Mary Tamm

The massacre at the theatre in Aurora Colorado saddens me. Do not send me crap saying that I am a bad person for being sad and upset this happened, “when there are other countries with worse issues.” You know what I have to say to you? This happened in my country. We are not a war zone. We do not have multiple extreme shootings like this on a daily basis. This happened in an enclosed building, where families and individuals just wanted to enjoy themselves and watch an amazing film. They did not think “hey, let’s risk our lives and go see the midnight screening of the Dark Knight Rises.” Are you that much of a fucking asshole that you have no respect to the families who have all suffered losses? There was a 3 month old shot. A 3 MONTH OLD! Who the fuck are you to tell me not to be sad just because, to you, it’s ”not as bad” as some random people in a country that has severe political unrest and terrorism issues. No I don’t know anyone in Aurora, nor do I know anyone in a middle eastern country, but I’ll be damned if ANYONE tells me how I am supposed to feel about ANYTHING.
Go spew your hate and ignorance elsewhere.

**edited to include new stories I am reviewing and the website’s poster**
With Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary fast approaching next year, everyone is getting on board to celebrate in any shape or form they can. I am no exception. I’ve found Celebrate, Regenerate, which is a fanzine specifically for the 50th anniversary. They would like to have every DW story reviewed/analyzed (and not negatively) for both Classic and NuWho.
More info here: http://celebrateregenerate.blogspot.co.uk/
(From their website)
Our aim is to follow in the footsteps of the Doctor Who Magazine ’200 Golden Moments’ special. Except this ‘zine will be written entirely by as many fans of the show as possible. Everybody is invited to write for us, whether you’re 10 or 100!
On the ‘Stories’ page, you’ll find a list of all Doctor Who stories that need to be covered. As each one is taken by a fan, it’ll be ticked off. Hopefully we’ll end up with every story taken by the end of the project. Once we have the content, we’ll be able to build up a physical ‘zine which you’ll then be able to get hold of and read.
Be part of Doctor Who’s 50th!
I am doing three (I know! 3!): the Third Doctor’s ‘Death to the Daleks’; the Ninth Doctor’s two part finale ‘Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways’; and the Tenth Doctor’s ‘Fear Her’ (hush, I loved it for what it was, so stop hating on it!) Come join in on the Whopreciation with me!!
Peace & Love,
My “Sexiest Man of my Life” turns 70 today. Oh, the things I would do to this man!
Peace & Love,
Today everyone combines dating, relationships, and sex into one category. Am I the only one who doesn’t anymore? Is it passé?
You might be wondering why I am bringing this up. Whelp, at brunch today I met up with James and Mike and while we were there a guy I have dated and still occasionally go out with (read, no longer sleep with) was there. I shall call him “S”. “S” came by the table on his way out to say hey to James and myself (he doesn’t know Mike) and about 5-6 minutes after he had left I received a text from him that read “Is this the other guy you’ve been sleeping with? That’s f***ed up!” I showed James and Mike and we all got a good laugh out of it bc James and Mike are dating each other. So I waited until I got home, about 10 minutes ago, and tried to call him, but went to voicemail. So i said F*** it and emailed him. I let him know that:
I’ll let the pictures explain some of it. I am sore and stiff, though I am finally up to about 90% mobility in my neck. I just cannot turn it to the right very quickly. No broken bones or other serious injuries. The EMTs said I was lucky to be alive from the way she hit me and then the run in with the pole. I am just grateful my airbag did not go off. I am scared to death of those things. I hit the right side of my face/head against the steering wheel, so if it would have deployed I am pretty sure my neck would have snapped. (and yes, I was wearing my seatbelt. Have the mild burn to prove it.) I ended up with: light bruising under my right eye and around my neck; stiff neck (no initial mvmt to the right); sore sides; I favored my right leg; and had a 2″ bump on the right side of my head. The driver side door was jammed and the window would not roll down far enough to climb out, so I crawled out the passenger door. A nice gentleman from the mexican restaurant near the crash got us chairs and glasses of water and let me use his phone to call my mum (since my phone was who knows where in my car). A woman called 911 for us, the cops arrived, grabbed my phone and purse for me, took down information, and after an initial checkup, the EMTs took me by ambulance to the hopsital. The doctor (sadly, not The Doctor) checked me over and explained that I had no broken ribs, my thumb was just stressed and bruised, and that I had concussion symptoms, but no concussion (which was why I was dazed and slow to respond, but coming out of it quickly). I also had great blood pressure for someone just in an accident (I am great in stressful situation like this). I was finally done crying, he wrote my prescriptions, and I waited around trying to find someone to pick me up. Laura was able to bring me to CVS for the meds and drop me off at my apt. My mum and dad drove up from Houston (during which my dad got pulled over for speeding and thankfully was only given a warning. Which is hilarious b/c my dad drives like a snail normally. Love ya pops!) I kinda just stared at the living room wall until my parents arrived, threw random items into an overnight bag, picked up the prescriptions, and drove the three hours back to Houston so I could recuperate. Now I am dealing w/the pain & the other person’s insurance. Sick of everything.
Is it time for Gally yet???
I love most anything British. I love Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Bill Nighy is smashing in anything he touches. Tom Wilkinson is a great actor. Penelope Wilton will always be “Harriet Jones, Prime Minister” to me. Celia Imrie I adored in After You’ve Gone. That being said, I needed to see this film.

Now granted, it took me a few weeks to shuffle my schedule around to fit it in, but I finally did this week. The 14th actually, as a matter of fact. I love catching the first movie of the day, especially during the summer when the kids are out of school (not mine, everyone else’s!). It’s relaxing, the theatres are wonderfully empty, and most importantly for me, there were NO KIDS! (I don’t hate kids, but I prefer to enjoy my movie sin bambinos).
From here I’ll put everything else behind a cut so as not to spoil anything, but do know it was a cute film, and a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Continue reading
Random post is random, I know. There are many countries I would
die love to visit and I know many of them are outside my realm of availabilty (i.e. Iraq and Iran), but there are some that are still possible. Those being: (alphabetically) *note, this is not a short list*
I was browsing through the TopShop USA website and I came across these leggings:
I decided I wanted to put together a few outfits with the leggings as the base piece. (The shoes ended up going with each outfit I chose as well. What? They’re cute!) So, here is what I came up with. I’ll post links for the pieces involved (other than the leggings as they are linked above) after each photo.
