A month ago, I had a dream. In this dream, I was in a hotel connected to a Chapters. I went into the Chapters, and they didn't have DWM yet. The next day, when I went to Chapters to see if they had DWM, they did not.
Last night, I had a dream where I went to Chapters, and there were rows of DWM, at least one stack for each cover (yeah, we just got the "Marked for DEATH?" issue). Today, I go to Chapters, and they had DWM! (After much deliberation, I got the Amy cover.) CLEARLY I HAVE DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE RELATED PSYCHIC POWERS.
( Also, Sherlock? )
This is one of my favourite parts of the fandom year.
It's kind of stressful. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE ONE CHARACTER FROM ALL OF OLD WHO NEW WHO TORCHWOOD AND SARAH JANE? Although, I am happy that currently, 11 is just ahead of 10, who is just ahead of Donna. And Romana I has one more vote than Romana II. BUT NO ONE HAS VOTED FOR HARRY! Poor old chap.
I blame the specific irl people on having looked at my Facebook homepage the night before, and pretty much the only element of this dream that I couldn't place was the emphasis on basketball.
And I'm writing this down, because that's supposed to help with lucid dreaming. I get lucid dreams sometimes, but I'd like to be able to actually enjoy them, instead of focusing on keeping the dream going, and not moving my body even an inch and waking myself up.
PS: Does anyone know what losing teeth in a dream might symbolise? Cause that's something that seems to pop up every once in a while.
( Oooh, shiny! )

Oh wow. This meme taught me that:
1) I need to switch out some icons! New new new stuff!
2) I actually still like the icons I made and uploaded.
3) I need more textless icons (or not, idk).
4) I need more fandomly diverse icons (more Leverage! Merlin!! HP! Supernatural! AVPM/S!! etc).
5) WHAT AM I DOING I NEED TO DOUBLE MY WORD COUNT TO CATCH UP IN NANO AND IT IS ONE IN THE MORNING!!
In one of my classes, the big assignment for the semester is to make a pop song. Which sounds cool in theory, but is not so great for us non-music students. Luckily, I'm in a group with my friend, who is a composition major, and one of her friends, who is a computer science major focusing on music stuff, and another guy who isn't in music. You have no idea what a relief that is. I mean, I can probably write some lyrics pretty easily, but the whole music aspect is beyond me. And I believe I am now obligated to link to my friend's music. She has skills, but I can't listen to her music because it personally weirds me out.
So I watched series 1 of Merlin, and it was awesome, and I may post reviews up later. Also, maybe make some icons. As soon as I thought to look up the screencapping keyboard shortcut in VLC, I may have gone a bit overboard. There's just so much pretty! I'm actually a bit frightened to look in that folder and see how many pics I saved.
In that vein, does anyone know of a good place to dl series 2?
( AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME )
The crazy thing about this is, we were just talking earlier about how none of us are serious Bieber fans, or Bieber fans of any sort really, but we still all had mild fangirl reactions to him. It's just that it's rare enough that celebrities come through the area, even for concerts and stuff, that to see someone, anyone!, was insane. Especially to see them at the damn cheap theatre!
I went to bed early (10ish) so I could get lots of sleep and wake up to watch Doctor Who. And I was tired. But it's now 4am, and I'm wide awake. 7 hours to go. Fantastic.
I haven't posted about DW here. Maybe because it's still weird for me to be at the same time as fandom, iunno. But I do know it's awesome and I love it more and more. I like River Song more this series, and I effing love ROOORRYY!! (I also love how Amy calls for him) And how ADORABLE Amy/Rory are.
I also like my system of watching it. I watch it by myself on the UK air date, figure out what I think about it, then I get fandom's opinion, then 2-3 weeks later, I watch it on Space and get my family's opinions as "normal" viewers. My mom likes Amy as much as Donna, and has warmed up to Matt. My sister still thinks David was better, but I beat that opinion into her, and I can beat it out again! :p
I watched Jekyll and it was GOOD. It was like CoE, but without the soul-crushing last two episodes. And more awesome. And SOPHIE! I love Leverage! Especially Parker. Good times. And I'm caught up on Supernatural, so that makes, like, 3 things I can now talk about that aren't straight-up Doctor Who (even though I can connect them all to DW in at least 2 ways. It's my skillz).
And I get to go home tomorrow for Reading Week! I think I'm going to force my family to watch the DW Movie. And maybe Leverage. I mean, so far, I've been able to rewatch all aired episodes before the new one airs on Wednesdays. I'm such a nerd...
(That was a bit rambly wasn't it? Yeah... I blame having to work six days in a row this week. Halfway done!)
My one sister was also delighted, but I wouldn't let her near them (if my stuff gets broken, it's usually her fault).
My other sister basically rolled her eyes at me for being a nerd (whatever miss SRC first vice-president).
And my mom, well, she thought it would be an actual screwdriver. One that, you know, drove screws. She resolved to pay more attention to what I buy online. I am left wondering, who buys screwdrivers online?
As of midnight, April Fools Day has begun. Long known by the Ancient Norse as a holy day by which they would worship Loki, the trickster god, by throwing long scraps of cloth over their neighbors' homes or placing miscellaneous goop on frequently touched tools. K, so I made that bit up. But it is still an awesome holiday. The day has scarcely begun, and already I have aided in no less than 4 pranks. Pretty Freaking Epic.
But it is late, and I probably ought to go to bed.
