THIS IS HOW OBSESSED WITH DOCTOR WHO I AM:

So, I was tutoring my student and one of the questions asked her to find the word that rhymed with roam. I see that one little word and I start humming Love Don't Roam. XD

Okay, now I'm off to make some hot chocolate and grab a doughnut so I can watch episode two of Once Upon a Time, then Recovery. I am trying to go through my Eccleston, Piper, and Tennant list of movies/shows to watch. I'm going to take a leaf out of [livejournal.com profile] eloriekam's book and try to watch one each when I get home.

What to do tomorrow:
  • Watch Dalek before I go to work so I can get started on [livejournal.com profile] then_theres_us' next challenge so I won't be writing it on my mobile at the last minute.
  • Why did only two other writers go for challenge 87? :( Well, check out [livejournal.com profile] fannishliss' Domestic and [livejournal.com profile] jessicaqueen's Cravings So Deep - which I almost missed! :/ Gorgeous pieces of work.
  • I get off of work at 5 so I'll work on SMW for a bit, then on my personal statements.
  • Watch... hmm, maybe something of Eccleston. Yes, Eccleston. I don't think I've ever seen anything of his.
  • I also want to get to the Halloween fics that were written for [livejournal.com profile] bad_wolf_rising's ficathon. -
  • SPEAKING OF WHICH: [livejournal.com profile] who_in_whoville WON SECOND PLACE FOR BananaBoi & BirdGrrrrl!!! Part 1 is rated Teen, Part 2 Adult.
  • I need to read the other ones 'cause, unfortunately, I was unable to browse BWR this weekend. :(
  • Also, [livejournal.com profile] charlottetrips wrote a little snippet for Halloween. This way to Trick or Treat.

You're so funny with your ramblins' :) Thanks for the recc. I can't wait to see Once Upon a Time but I'm really trying to just dedicate myself to NaNo this month :P

Haha. I connect with 10 because we both have gobs. XD I'll be posting my reaction to Once Upon a Time soon so avoid it~ until you've seen it. I will say, I very much enjoyed the second episode. So emotional~. I didn't know you were doing NaNo! I would've done it, but I'm trying to finish an in-progress fic I've had out for quite a few years... Maybe next year. Good luck!

Thanks for the recc! :)

Not having a thousand other deadlines should help me meet the deadline this week with Dalek! plus it's one of my favorite eps of all, and so I practically have it memorized. :P

Oh, oh, if you've not seen anything else of Eccleston.... what should you watch???? *_*

The problem is that he solicited the role of the Doctor, having worked with RTD on a project called the Second Coming, in which he plays, yes, the son of God. So the vast majority of his projects are grim... he's spent a whole career being sad or mean, which is really awful considering how delightful he is with a bit of comedy.

If you are willing to watch something that is pretty weird, but fun, you might try The Revenger's Tragedy. It also has the guy who played Elton-- Marc Warren, in a very funny supporting role, plus Eddie Izzard and Derek Jacobi and several others. I loved it. It's still grim, being all about an elaborate revenge, but Chris shines in it and it does have its black humor.

My other two personal favorites are Strumpet and Anchoress.

Anchoress is a complex and beautiful little film from early in Chris's career. He plays the Priest of a (real life) girl in the Fourteenth Century who has visions and decides to let herself be walled up. Not as grim as it sounds, because it's extremely beautifully filmed and has a fantastical surprise ending!

Strumpet is a crazy little experimental film, all digital, in which Chris plays an eccentric poet who collects strays, and ends up befriending a girl who sets his poetry to music. It's rough but incredibly endearing. I totally fell in love with Strayman and have watched the whole thing through numerous times. Some people think Chris looks too smelly in it. But when I wrote a crossover I just made him take a bath. :D

No problem! :)

Haha, I just don't know where last week went. I think I just have to get back into the rhythm of working again.

I have all those in my list. I've been trying to find Strumpet online, but no luck so far. :/ I'll probably play eeny, meeny, miny, moe and hope I can find the work it lands on. XD

You should join ecclescult -- they are the best source for finding Chris's work. :)

Aww, thanks for the reccie!!! I love your ramblings!

I actually wrote a good portion of my fics on my mobile before I got my iPad. Crazy, huh?

You're welcome! :) Haha, it's all I seem to do, go on and on. XD

I don't know how you did it... I miss having a physical keypad over the touchscreen I now have; at least then it wouldn't have been that much of a problem. I'm half-way through chapter 11 of The Lost Day, but have to head to work now so I'll finish reading it and review once I get home!
