12:53 am - Life and other extremely silly things
Sorry, for the temporary absence, but things have been a bit busy as of late, Uni-wise (The rush before the mid-semester break, you know. That said, no classes for two weeks, yay!).

Firstly: Yesterday, my Psych lab-report was due in Yesterday. As in, the worth 40% of my final mark one. So, much of Tuesday and Wednesday was spent completing that (just ask nostalgia_lj, whom I chatted with whilst getting references). Still, that's in on time, and over and done with. And that'll the last I mention of that, since no-one is particularly interested in the correlations between intrinsic religious orientation and sense of humour, in relation to the personality trait of seriousness.

And, after the all-nighter that was spent completing that, I went and got a good night's sleep last night. As in 15 hours. I'm quite impressed with myself for that effort, actually.

Reasons why today's Astronomy prac made me headdesk: Because one really needs 13 years of education to enter celestial co-ordinates, and then press the "Take Reading" button.

Oh, and after Uni, me and the Creative Writing class went to see a play, written by one of our tutor's friends. It was... interesting. It had some really affecting bits, some terribly funny bits, and some painfully pretentious bits (including some trying to shove the agenda down my throat, which annoys me, even though I supported said agenda). Still, it was worth the 8 dollars.

I still don't know what I'm going to write my script on. But I think it'll be fourth wall breaking. I feel like writing a direct to the audience monologue. No idea what about, mind.

Now, some net stuff, for those who don't give a damn about my real life:

So, ten Doctors sit down for a game of poker... Or, fun with the doctorwho people.

From the land of unceasing crazy, aka the OG. Now, there is a certain individual at the OG, known for his extremely vocal (one might see even ravingly batshit) hatred of David Tennant's Doctor. And said individual has recently decided to start up a club of Tennant haters, complete with planned website, appeals to authorities to sack Tennant, and t-shirts. Normally, I'd be vaguely upset by this, but this guy's chosen name for his club? The Whovians Against Tennant Society.

AKA TWATS.

(No, considering this guys prior record, this isn't a joke).

Now, I'm just highly amused by the fact I can legitimately call him a twat, and he can't complain. Or the rest of his (apparently) 21 and a half member-strong society.

Oh fandom, you so crazy.

21 and a half member? How did he manage that?

*giggles like a loon at the name.* Yes, I am twelve, why do you ask? :P

Apart from that, how hung-up can you get?

Apparently one person wasn't sure if they wanted to join or not.

This guy is an idiot, really, when it comes to Tennant hate. He's so over the top, that if I hadn't seen him come out with this stuff for months and months, I'd swear he was a parody.

The Ten Doctors thing makes me wonder. I mean, Seven would pwn because he'd have set the whole thing up, would have the longest-running memory (anything past Eight gets discounted 'cos of amnesia), and would play the fool.

I love the silliness on that thread. I'd almost thought OG incapable of that sort of thing.

Also, he counts half-people?

I think I agree on Seven winning, strategy-wise, in the long term. Short-term, it pretty much comes down to luck of the deal.

Of, the OG is perfectly capable of being silly. Just take a look of some of the threads started by Sparacus. ;)

Apparently so.

Short-term, yeah. But that would be the most awesome poker game to watch, however it turned out. :D

Sparacus, again? *grin* I seem to be hearing quite a lot about this dude.

Hell yes. I mean, I find late-night poker on TV disturbingly entertaining of it's own right, so this would kill me with the awesome.

He's a character, truly.

Hmm, he may want to change the name if he wants to be taken seriously. *giggles*

15 hours sleep? That *is* impressive.

Aye. It's like he's taking advice from Hermione Granger or something.

I pulled an all-nighter the day before, so technically that works out as 7.5 hours per day...

For a moment I thought you were speaking of Sparacus... but then not even Sparacus is batshit enough to think someone will wear a t-shirt with 'twat' written on it

Sparacus has his flaws, but he tends not to insult actors, just the characters. And he's so entertaining you tend to forgive him for it.

Sparacus's ideas are never boring, I'll give him that.

If you do a monologue that breaks the fourth wall, totally make it abusive towards the audience. Say something about having to write monologues, and then let them know it hurts. Maybe work pig blood into it. Performance art.

The other Doctors only *think* they're playing poker. It's actually Monopoly and Seven's got a hotel on Boardwalk.

I did that last semester, for my other creative writing class (it was a monologue from a character to their author). Then again, I also managed to write 2000 words about someone with writers block, which shows what crack my brain is on at times.

That sounds reminiscent of a Pratchett quote, actually.

dude. You and meta ;)

Fate only *thinks* he's winning the chess game. In reality, it's a poker game and Seven has an Ace up his sleeve.


(okay, who saw that one coming? hands up?)

Our folio pieces all had to have a thematic link. Mine was metafiction. I also had one other piece, which was pretty much about how fairytales don't work in the real word, linking reality and fantasy. This piece, I was quite disturbed to find, mapped disturbingly well onto Rose's story for Doctor Who.

Which is possibly why I love the Doomsday ending for all the wrong reasons - because I pretty much wrote it. The character got everything she wanted and never had, and she hates it because of what she lost to get it.

Yeah, I must admit to having predicted it a little. ;)
