11:28 pm - Some people have all the luck
Work was okay today. Well, okay on my part, anyway. One of the other girls had the best friggin' time ever, when you somehow managed to sell 100 tickets in one go. One hundred tickets! I can't even sell that many in a whole week!

Lucky bitch. *mutters under breath*

All I got was the girl who managed to be mysteriously not there the minute I mentioned I was calling from The Comedy Club. (Despite the fact that until I mentioned that, her room-mate was about to get her) Interesting, that.

I wonder how long she can keep that up for...

But, I did manage to talk Anne the supervisor into giving me Thursday off, so I can go to the CHAS meeting/pub crawl. So see you then, CHAS types!

I am currently about half way through the links list. I think. It should be up by the end of the week, in any case.

Oh, and in lieu of these Doctor Who spoiler pics, I now despeately want to read a DW/James Bond crossover, explaining how 007 is actually a Time Lord.
...Come on, you know it's true.

And what would you do for those 15 to 20 seconds?

Probably an extra 15-20 seconds of even more random Tennant gushing. There's no such thing as too much of that...

Hmm, interesting spoiler pictures... I still don't know what to think about them, though. On the one hand, my inner fangirl is squeeing with much glee at the sight of David Tennant in a tux; but on the other hand, the Doctor should look a bit dorkier, somehow.

Well, we shall just have tosee how the episode turns out. Though I do like the fact he apparently didn't change his shoes, and still has the Chucks on.

Oh, you're right, and I hadn't even noticed! The Chucks are a very cute detail, and a very Doctor-ish one.

i do believe this is my my cue to do the following:
- stand dumbfounded by his extreme shekshyness
- say "guh"
- stand dumbfounded some more
- say "hot damn!"

mmm...tuxedo *squealish fangirlness*

I believe you have worked out the fomula for the perfect reaction to these pictures.

There should be a Nobel Prize for that kind of thing.

The Noble Prize for Fangirling?

Yeah, I was thinking something along those lines. *nods* It definitely has potential. Much more prestigious than any of those other Nobel prizes. Pfft!

Of course it's more prestigious than those other ones. Who remembers them?

Though I do wonder what the previous Nobel's for Fangirling were given for.

I certainly don't remember the Nobel prizes for those...um...other areas.

Hmm, I'm not sure. Perhaps we can introduce it, and this is the first time it's ever been rewarded! We're creating history!

Meh. Who cares about some boring old blokes getting prizes for...something.

We are indeed. History in the making. It shall be our claim to fame!

Pfft, I certainly don't! They can keep their achievements (whatever they were), these will be much more impressive.

We're making history...in a way, this means we're controlling part of the future!

They are irrelevant, really. Just big nobodies.

And yes! The future is ours! *starts plotting*

Biggest nobodies in the whole history of being a big nobody. I don't even know why I'm still talking about them!

Teehee, is it wrong that when I read that I immediately thought, 'The power...is YOURS!' and started imagining Captain Planet?

It is?

Never happened.

Talking about who?

Actually, I had the very same thought, as brought on by this video.

...I don't remember.

Oh, good, I'm not insane! No, really. I'm not. Quit it!

Ahaha, I was going to mention that video, it's a classic! It combines David Tennant, Doctor Who and Captain Planet *happy sigh* It's like a sundae with hot chocolate sauce and chocolate chips.

Insanity is a relative concept, dear. It is defined by the company you keep. And in this company, you are quite sane.

Yes, that video is awesome (it's going on my next Links List). But the combination is truly incomparable. And I really do approve of your analogy.
