March has been a slow month for reads. Running up to the 13th I was too distracted with the prospect of my first convention and then after that it was the start of university holidays so no bus trips. Except for the trip to London. Still even then I was listening to a musical/theatre show on my zen. (shh bout that!)

Books finished:
Out Of The Past by Sean Michael
Doctor Who: The Stealer Of Dreams by Steve Lyons

Books partially read: (distracted mind couldn't find enough interest)

  • Going to see Friday 13th tonight at 11.35pm. Late night horror flick at the cinema? Hell yeah!

  • Was reading Son Of A Witch yesterday whilst waiting for my Materials Lab. Finished page 186 (or there abouts), looked at next page to find out it was page 263. Brilliant. No pages had been ripped out. No gap in the spine. No missing pages elsewhere. Safe to say wasn't impressed. Did no one else who had read that copy notice? Will be having a trip to the library to complain/inform them. Thank god for eBooks. Albeit with different page numbers.

  • Dr Black was running said Materials lab and asked me to stay behind and speak to him. I was thinking 'oh fuck'. It obviously showed as he went on to explain he wanted to discuss mix designs for my dissertation. The new baby (Grace) is making it difficult for him to keep up with what everyone's doing and it's worrying him.
  • When discussing this he said to me 'Rachel spotted your nails'. Shit. Fuck. and all the words inbetween. I was trying to think up a way of politely saying 'if you're about to tell me to cut my nails I'm doing a different dissertation'. Luckily this speech was not needed. Apparently if I'm comfortable with working with long nails (why would they be long if I wasn't?!) then they would take special precautions so I could use the machinery. *pumps fist in air*

  • Still need to book hotel for Avenue Q. Someone remind me to do that later.

  • 8 and a bit days til my first con! Wooooo
  • Why is everything the same weekend? Leeds Unis summer ball. Collectormania. Utopia. probably Bramham Horse Trials.  I wanna go to Utopia as Gareth David Lloyd and James Moran are doing it. But with that being the saturday and london it wipes out pretty much everything else. Collectormania is the entire weekend and is in Milton Keynes. assuming spatch wants to do the entire weekend. There's no one I wanna see at that so far. Bramham Horse Trials is Thurs-Fri-Sat-Sun. Normally just do Sat/Sun unless is brilliant weather and then I burn badly on the Friday! Only made it to three years so far. Actually might be four as I think one year I just did the friday. That would still allow me to do the Summer Ball -assuming other people want to go. My final year at uni but most people are staying on for another year and Katy Perry isn't likely to make my friends want to go. Hmmm decisions, decisions.

1. Bold the names of guys you'd definitely shag.
2. Italicize the names of guys you might shag after a little persuasion.
3. Leave the guys who don't do anything for you alone.
4. Put a question mark after the guys you've never heard of. ?
5. Strike the guys you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.

Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list ten things you LOVE that begin with that letter. Afterward, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

[ profile] kerryryan challenged me to 'T'

1. Torchwood  -  How could this not be number one on my list?! It is made of awesome. Way better than Doctor Who. It's very Buffy like in humour and plot ... and episode names actually. Something Borrowed/Something Blue Sleeper/Sleeper ... I could go on but I won't bore you.

2. Tia Maria  -  The coffee flavoured goodness that burns in the good way when downed straight. Hell yeah. Tastes good when added to coffee to make a lovely Calypso Coffee

3. Toast  -  Just because.

4. Touch  -  I'm a very tactile person so hugs are appreciated. No reason needed.

5. Theatre  -  Not seen all that much but I bloody love it. And the music is good to sing along to.

6. Teacakes  -  None have beaten the one I used to get in sixth form ... mmm ...

7. Teachers (The TV programme)  -  Love the humour and Simon Casey. The donkey and the sheep randomly in every episode. Ooooh and Jonas Armstrong is in one (?) series.

8. Tiny Dancers  -  They're a band from Sheffield who play an interesting mix of music which is probably best  described as folk-rock. But you really should give them a listen even if that sounds a bit weird as I doubt I've done them justice. Seen them live 3 times now and they have some of the most original merchandise I have ever seen.

9. Tiger  -  It's a larger. Lovely and strong and expensive. Oh well.

10. TARDIS  -  Cos it is real. And is my money box. And my pen.

Yeah I ran out of ideas. Though T was gonna be WAY easy than that!

ooooh it was fun :D Here be a quick photo story type thing... yeah so a few words and a few pics basically.

On the way down, lots of talking so went really quickly until we hit a traffic jam and ended up behind this tanker

Yes I was a little sad and got over excited, squeeled & took a photo. What you expected any less from me?!
Should I phone the number? Tempted to.

(bold is my comments)
The spoilers and three red Daleks. Sorry, we mean red herrings...

 List ten fictional characters you wouldn't kick out of bed (in no particular order).

1. Ianto Jones, Torchwood
2. Jack Harkness, Torchwood
3. Tara MaClay, BtVS
4. Simon, Teachers (UK)
5. Robin of Locksley, Robin Hood [Jonas Armstrong]
6. Rose, Doctor Who
7.  Maxxie Oliver, Skins
8. Gwen Cooper, Torchwood
9. Cassie, Skins
10. Lindsay Peterson, QAF (US)

My mind went completely blank after I filled in the first three! So may get editted/extras tagged on end.
You remember the song in the final Dr Who episode of series 3 of the new who where the Master was dancing and pushing the Doctor around in the wheelchair? Yup it was great. I suspected it may have been scissor sisters and the Radio Times kindly confirmed it for me (and the many viewers who wrote in).
