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? )

Also, I've changed some of my icons! Such a rare event, but I suspect I'll add more before S6 is over.

Today I had an epic all caps convo on Twitter, in which I learned that polygamy solves everything. (Though River is still mine [livejournal.com profile] aethre!!)

So I was on the bus, sitting near the back, reading a magazine with my headphones in. I was the only one there. Then, this guy came on and sat right by me. He was mentally disabled, so my tactic of looking completely absorbed in what I was doing wasn't exactly completely effective. He brought out his stuffed toy duck, who was wrapped in a blanket, and told me that she was in a car accident with him, and the hospital had wrapped her in a blanket and put a neck brace on her, and that the neck brace they put on him in the ambulance had had duckies on it. I did my best to be polite, and pet Gracie when he asked me too, but when we got off at the same stop, I walked away a bit quicker than usual. I have enough trouble ending conversations with people who can pick up on social cues, and I really didn't want to push Gracie around in a cart.

Seriously, I love this school for one thing. Yesterday, I forgot my wallet in the main eating area for nearly 2 hours, and when I came back to look for it, it was still on the table. I could not have handled going through everything I would have had to in order to get everything back/cancelled/whatever.

In conclusion, here's a Dalek with a bowtie.

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.

Huh. I guess my week off is technically over. :( And I had to wear pants every day! Normally during a week off, and what I had hoped for this week was to just chill out, watch TV, think about doing my readings and catching up in class, and basically do nothing. But I worked Monday, and Tuesday I went to Chapters to check for DWM, Wednesday was my sister's birthday, and she stayed and went home Thursday, and I work today and tomorrow. Plus, all week there's been a guy in our apartment putting wood floor in the entryway. It doesn't help that all semester, I've actually been hanging out with people (almost every day, really). While it's been fun, I just need a week to hermit up in my room and not speak for a couple of days. And I didn't get that. I shouldn't be too worried, socialising isn't a terrible thing, it's just that for the past two years (as long as I've been in university), near the middle/end of the year, I get some sort of breakdown. Last year was worse than the year before, and I'm scared that trend will continue. Idk, I'll just veg out on Sunday and hope it's enough.

Oh man, dreams can be so awesome sometimes. I've had dreams that incorporated fandomy things before, but I don't recall ever becoming a character before. It was interesting. It started off at this big gym place, all out of nice wood with bleachers and everything. There was some sort of air band/karaoke/dance-off thing going on. Sarah Stubbe was going to be part of a band thing, and I was going to sing. Most people were cosplaying as Amy or Rory. Sarah was as FaS/ToA Amy, and I was dressed as Utah!Amy, but my shirt was light blue instead of red, and my hair - ginger - was done in braids, the same as Phoebe in Charmed 2x01, which I had watched last night. I was worried about having to sing, but Sarah was reassuring me, and then, for some reason, I went and crashed this dance routine that was going on. It was a group led by Nicole McKim, and they were all dressed in black, performing some kind of ballet-esque dance. I wove around them, and wasn't really in the way, but Nicole seemed pissed. When it was over, I went back to Sarah, embarrassed, not for myself, but that Nicole didn't work around me properly. She said that it was hilarious, everyone thought so. Then there must have been some sort of transition, I think that the shelves from a sporting goods store kind of descended from above. An announcer was talking about their leather shorts on sale. Sometime in this, I became Amy. Confused about the leather shorts, I assumed it meant spandex shorts. I must have said something to that effect, probably to Rory, cause then the Doctor started rambling about the transition to wearing leather shorts in basketball, and how much of an improvement it was. Naturally, I/Amy tuned out. The aisle we were in was very small, claustrophobic, so Rory and I began to wander off. The Doctor began to lead us away, telling us to stay close, but he gets too far ahead and we can't follow his voice. We keep walking, and engage in some basketball-related innuendo.

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.

The award for most random moment of the day goes to the chick who asked me what my favourite Will Ferrell movie was while her boyfriend paid for their tickets. At least she seemed aware that it was a bit odd. I said Step-Brothers, as that was the first one that came to mind. Her bf said he said the same thing. And then they went away.

In other weird work news, the other day was my second ever floor shift. On floor, you have to do theatre checks, basically go into each theatre, make sure the movie's running properly and the theatre is at a comfortable temperature, and that no ones doing anything they shouldn't be. We have Gulliver's Travels right now, so I spent an extra long time checking that one in order to see Catherine Tate, because I'm seriously still in love with Donna forever and ever. More interesting than that, when I went into Love and Other Drugs, what do I see but Anne Hathaway's boobs. Honestly, not what I had expected when I woke up that morning.

That's right, I've just sent out the Christmas cards! If you still want one though, and are in the US or Canada, there's apparently still time (until Dec 13 for US, Dec 16 for Can). Just leave your address at the post here and I'll send one off. They have glitter! And gel pen writing! Not in orange or yellow, cuz that'd be mean. Remember when gel pens were all the rage? I'm totally bringing that back. Dollarama always has awesome stuff.

You know what's weird? When I'm working in the box office, people sometimes ask me if I've seen whatever movie they're thinking about going to. The answer is usually no. They always act surprised. I don't get it. Yeah, I get free movies, but I don't have the time or inclination to go to every freaking movie. Don't act so shocked when you find out I haven't been to Saw 3D or some chick flick.

Okay, I'm procrastinating just a little. Can you tell I have a ~2000 word essay for English due on Tuesday? And a report for Pop Music due then as well? And a ~3100 word 'blog' for Classics due Thursday? None of which I've started. And I work for ~10 hours tomorrow. And I have to renew my driver's license before the end of the month. This week is gonna be fun.

I've just connected Big Finish (the DW audio company thing) with Big Idea (the company behind Veggie Tales). Now I'm trying to fit Larry the Cucumber into Zagreus and I think my brain just broke a little. I should probably go to sleep now...

I kind of really hate the whole concept of essays. (Which may be why it is 2am, and I'm not even a quarter done one that's due at 1 this afternoon) But really, what's the point? Why do I have to ramble on for over a thousand words to try and make a point that I could make in a paragraph? What does that accomplish? All this does is teach students how to bullshit their way through everything and it just stresses everyone out! And it's probably of as much real-world importance as learning how to factor quadratic equations or something (aka none).

I'm just procrastinating now. Which is ridiculous and stupid, but there's not much I can do to stop that. It's taking all my will not to switch over and start rambling in my NaNo, but that's mostly because I'm putting this essay in my NaNo (I've decided I might as well start cheating right off the bat this year, rather than waiting for the inevitable panic later).

ETA: Also, my sense of 'organisation' makes it damn near impossible to get out of my bed, and even more daunting to get back to where I need to be to work. I think I need a desk. A really really big desk...

Arrgh! Today kinda really sucked. I couldn't find my bus pass for a while last night, but found it just before giving up, then this morning, I couldn't find my iPod headphones. Worst of all, this afternoon, I for realsies lost my bus pass, and with it was my meal plan card (with over $200 still loaded on it), and a crapton of coupons. Added to that, I have an English essay due on Tuesday that I haven't started, NaNo's almost here, and all the social interaction that goes with it, and my Classics class has moved past the Iliad and the Odyssey(the stuff I know) into Roman epics, which means I have to start pretending to keep up.

I just want this over with. :(
for a lighter view... (or at least, more pop cultury) )

What a weird week. I finally got around to seeing a therapist, which was alright, and I won some free stuff at Gold's Gym, so I got an assessment there today and got some free time with a personal trainer. Which is completely baffling to anyone that knows me. Athleticism what?

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?
