|11:47 pm - I'm pretty certain there a lot of tangents in this post that made more sense in my head|
That ended up being surprisingly interesting for a day in which I was just expected to go into the city and then back home after lunch.
Anyways, someone on melbournemaniac was selling a whole bunch of manga second-hand very cheap, so I went and bought some stuff. Which meant I ended up going into the CBD to pick up a pile of volumes of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Yays for pretty CLAMP art!
Of course on the way in it was really freaking windy- when I was crossing the road, my poor hat got blown off and almost got run over. Fortunately the car stopped before that unmitigated tragedy could occur. I mean, that was the original hat. Luck was obviously on my side today.
But yeah, picked up my bag o'manga, had Hare Krishna food for lunch (Speaking of which, I have to wonder just how old I actually look. No-one ever asks for ID when I buy drinks, but people still assume I am a student just by looking at me.), bought a few bits and pieces that I missed the other day when things closed.
Oh, and got a couple of cheap summer dresses from the Designer Incubator. I figure I'll probably need them over in the states with their heat-wave or whatever.
And then I got a haircut. Which I probably didn't desperately need just yet, but I think I want my hair to look nice when I'm travelling
And now I am tired. How can just wandering around the city buying things be so tiring?
Here, have some Doctor Who wank as a refreshing treat.
Incidentally, does anyone remember an article a while back - not on LJ, but linked to me from LJ (maybe Firefox News?) - that was all about how two people can watch the same show but be seeing, basically, two entirely different shows? Something like that, anyway. It's not for anything serious, I just kind of want to reread it, and maybe keep the link handy.
Current Mood: tired
Huh. Didn't know that, lol.
Ianto, was it? He looks pretty interesting.
Ianto, that's right. They way I heard it, he wasn't even intended to last the whole season. But they liked what he did, so he was made a recurring character. And he became popular with the fans, so he was made a main character (and love interest). And then his fanbase got huge, and he was made into one of the central characters.
Then there was the miniseries, and the fandom imploded.
