I shouldn't be allowed on this site when in possession of my credit card. Temptation to buy ALL shoes that I make will send me broke.

This pretty much sums up how I feel about most people that I interact at the moment. If I could be Malcolm Tucker - I would. I so would. All he really wants is for people to do their jobs or at the very least, navigate around him with a touch of common sense. He's like me after dealing with telecommunications companies all day. All your filters are broken.

First and foremost - this season is a mystery that we have to solve. The Doctor keeps insisting that we ask the right questions and I have no doubt that he's hidden a secret from himself that he'll be trying to unravel. Everything we've seen so far are clues to this mystery. Before we unravel it, we need to remember that when it comes down to the line, Moffat is very straight forward with his plots. He also loves re-using his own characters so I'd bet money that this year is about righting old wrongs and setting a few kinks in the universe straight.

What was The Doctor's advice? Has this ever happened before?

My predictions:

The doctor knows where Gallifrey is but the process of regeneration was going to destroy that information, so he's hidden it in the pocket watch then left himself clues. He's going to need that bloody pocket watch back... Idiot.

The doctor will scribble over everything with chalk until he falls into a bubble universe, destroy/trick/defeat/woo the gatekeeper (Missy) and find Gallifrey.

Missy will be someone we know. Her manner resembles River Song (who is presumably 'dead' after the events of the season final and thus able to appear in this weird visage of 'heaven' the robot called, 'the promised land'). It's possible the ring has appeared to remind him that he's married, he's almost certainly stored some of his memories in the pocket watch before regenerating (hence his failing memory) and the older incantation of the doctor is actually something River spent most of last season harping on about. Don't forget she's a Timelord and could both change form and be working with the other Timelords to help The Doctor rescue Gallifrey from the bubble universe.

If anything, 'IN THE FOREST OF THE NIGHT' sounds suspiciously like a call-back to 'FOREST OF THE DEAD'

If Missy is some version of River Song, then it fits neatly with the running theme of leaving people behind. He left her in a library computer to do then in a dying Tardis.

Missy could also be the Tardis... "He can be very mean you know, except to me because he loves me so much." There aren't many people that The Doctor truly loves - or can call him their 'boyfriend'. "I do like his knew accent though - think I might keep it." Is weird.

That makes it sound like Missy is part of the doctor herself. Re-watching her last scene - she speaks as though she were in the room when the Doctor was tormenting the robot guy. If she is part-doctor then his memory might also have ended up in her.

It's hard to tell from one episode but if Moffat abides by the law of mystery writing (which you'd hope he would considering his work on Sherlock) then we already have enough information to work out what's going on.

Tagged by tardis_mafia lol but my answers will not be as interesting as hers!

Rule one: Always post the rules.
Rule two: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones.
Rule three: Tag 11 people and link them to the post.  I'm not tagging anyone but people can steal at will!
Rule four: Actually tell them you tagged them.

TARDIS MAFIA's QUESTIONS:

1. What is the object to your immediate left?

A glass of English Breakfast tea brewed in my new glass tumbler given to me by T2 for my birthday. Typical - of course it was tea!

2. How are you feeling right now? Yes, right now!

Like I should be writing but instead I've put on Downton Abbey. I'm also annoyed at myself because i didn't make any effort to clean my house today and I really shouldn't have eaten that enormous plate of vege cous cous!

3. Ear phones or ear buds?

Ear buds - but only because ear phones hurt my hears. I wish I could wear enormous retro ones but alas! Head!

4. Favorite book by your favorite author?

Tough. I can list some that are all at the top but I cannot pick between them.

Anything by the great Robert J Sawyer but in particular, Calculating God.
The Harry Potter Series - J K Rowling.
The Tomorrow Series - John Marsden
The Man Who Invented the 20th Century - Robert Lomas (the one responsible for introducing me to Tesla).

So - so many more.


5. What is your favorite TV show dated before the year 2000?

Stargate SG1 absolutely no contest.

6. You're out on a date - who would you be with, what would you order, and what would you mostly talk about? (I know it's technically 3 questions, but I'm cheating. :D)

Those of you who know me know EXACTLY who I'd be on a date with but I sure as frak am not incriminating myself in print! I'd be ordering some kind of lightly fried seafood (because I'd sure as hell be by the beach somewhere) and we'd talk about all the reprehensible things we did the night before.

7. You've just won $10,000 - what is the first thing you do with it?

I want to say something responsible but I'd probably blow it all going to Canada.

8. The Muppets or Sesame Street?

I watched Sesame Street so I'd have to be loyal and say that.

9. What was the last thing you bought?

*thinks* A skirt from Bloche that I've been stalking for ages and it finally went on sale!

10. Your two favorite actors get into a fight, physical or verbal, your choice - which one would win?

Jonathon Young and Amanda Tapping - verbal fight as their alter egos Nikola Tesla and Samantha Carter. After several bottles of wine they become too drunk to continue arguing about whose character is a better scientist and they pass out with no winner.


MY QUESTIONS OF DOOM

1. Game console of choice?
2. How many cushions are on your couch?
3. If I say, 'Green, Black, White, Yellow' do you know what I'm talking about...?
4. TV shows you still race home to watch?
5. Movie that has affected you the most, either in a good way or bad way?
6. Plasma or LCD?
7. If you could go clubbing right now, which music would you get down to? 90's pop or today's coolest club beats?
8. If I make you order coffee you pick... (yes I realise this will be hard for the Americans. Your coffee is terrible!!!)
9. Which era of history would you most like to live in? (And yes you can pick the future).
10. Which action star to you enjoy watching the most?
11. The Mummy franchise - yay or nay? (if you say nay I'm de-friending you immediately!)

So I share a birthday with Nikola Tesla! (which is amazing). Oddly I spent most of the day reblogging things about him (including the epic news that the CEO of Tesla Motors has donated a Million dollars to the guys salvaging Nikola's lab, turning it into an interactive museum).

Anyway I thought I should probably do a post about my birthday on my LJ :D

Firstly, I got a haul! Mostly importantly I got a new LiveScribe to replace the one that sadly died on me. I also received a beautiful dusty pink jacket, flowers and a teddy (below), books!!! notebook, tea thermos, bookmark and tea strainer.

My teddy is adorable, you can see me hugging him here - as i said to caz, he's so squishy! I spent all of friday asleep on the poor thing.

96

Also I thought it would be a good idea, for the record, to document what I actually look like at 27. Me, below, no makeup. That's it - that's what you get at 27 LOL. Proper skincare routine starts TOMORROW.
27 - come on, I don't remember how I got here...

Goodness... I think I spent 5 hours playing Skyrim today and i didn't even notice. This games is way too addictive. I think I'm going to be all adult and put myself on a curfew. Considering it's an open world game I could be there at it for bloody ever and not make a dent. SCARY.

Also, there is some kind of epic wind storm kicking about up here in the suburbs. Not sure where it came from but it doesn't appear to have any rain to go with it. Just wind. I'm afraid it might knock over my baby basil plant (which I feel too guilty to eat) over! Maybe I should go rescue it...

Have spent the rest of the day on work related, frantic phone calls. *sigh* weekend? what weekend? weekends are a myth!

I feel like a doctor - on call all the time. I should get one of those buzzy-pager things you see in 90's films. Anyone else remember those?

Jonathon didn't win any Jessie Awards this year :(  He really should have got it for Hamlet!

Still, look at that adorable face though - as if it couldn't pout its way to an award...

funny-pictures-lead-the-way

Have decided to come back to Livejournal well - technically I didn't leave I just used my RP account instead of my personal so what I really mean is ELLYMELLY is coming back to LJ. The new team they have in charge is repairing the place we all liked to call our home. We already have back most of the things that made people leave and by the looks of it, the new team is going to start giving us things that we request. Already it is infinitely better than the other shitty sites that I've been forced to lurk in.

Please please please I hope other people start coming back. LJ is a much better platform to share and catchup than the UGLY AS ALL HELL facebook. Tumblr's lovely but it's not a home. Twitter's fun but it's only a noticeboard.

If you left LJ because of the changes they made, try coming back. The more of us that return, the faster this place will return to its glory days as THE PLACE of fandom.

So, on this note, I will resume making icons and layouts.

I miss my journal - and fandom in general. I don't know what's going on but the world seems to be very quietly lately. Is it because we've run out of good shows or did our entire age bracket grow up and enter full time work :(
