I don't hate Matt Smith.

I know a couple of people were looking to me to cuss and blind about the new Doctor, but I'll be honest with you - aside from insisting he still rather resembles a foot, I always said he'll probably be a great Doctor, from the very moment I saw their little feature on him way back when. He's weird looking, he's eccentric, and he's really rather strange. These are all fabulous factors for the Doctor.

What I didn't expect was how easily it would be, as a die hard Tenth Doctor fan, to warm to the guy. The whole episode was great, way better than I expected from a 'first episode', which are usually silly and bland. The 'comedy' parts that should have felt really forced and eye-rollingly-terrible were genuinely gigglesome (BAD BAD BEANS) and fun.

The plot resembled a short story Moffat had written for one of the Doctor Who Storybooks, which was ace. I haven't yet formed an opinion on Amy. I'm hoping she's more than some titillating accessory - for all RTD's faults, not one of his companions were really deliberately eyecandy (Cpt. Jack aside, ahem).

Anyway, really looking forward to how the series shapes up. So far, so good!

Yesterday my mum gifted me with a DSi XL ! My old fat DS is on its last legs, but I've been loathe to replace it because I hate the new lites/Dsi Lites (too small and rectangular for my liking). I love it! I've already ordered a compatible R4 so I can play GBA games, because Nintendo are silly. Yesterday I took this photo with it:





Which is a double awesome thing because it means my car, which has been in the garage for like a week, is now back home! Her electrics are really faulty and even the mechanics haven't got a clue what's up, so they cleaned them all out and told me to see how it goes. If it all goes haywire again (and it will), we'll find an electrician or something to see what they can do. Whatever's wrong with her, I hope it's not too expensive. She's already cost a bomb and at this point it really would be cheaper to buy a new car. But. I love her. :( I just spent all morning cleaning her inside and out, because today is another glorious, almost-Summer day, and her metalic paint simply glitters in the sun. Yes. She's secretly a VAMPIRE.

I agree wholeheartedly with everything you've said. I went in thinking that he'd probably do a good job, but I wasn't expecting much. But man. I love him already- I'm still a die hard Ten fan, but Eleven is shaping up to be really rather brilliant, too.
I especially loved the scene in the beginning, where he climbs out of the TARDIS, and the kitchen scene. Fish custard!

Also lulz pink vampire car. She's still fabulous, though.

I replaced my old crappy DS with a DSlite. I was very pleased with it - small and rectangular it may be, but it doesn't hurt my hands and weigh a ton like the old silvery one :D plus the screen is much better. Grats on your new bebi. Btw. I bought SoulSilver. I hear you're a pokéfan too?

Suzuki makes good motorcycles but haven't said so much about their cars. Either way if its special to you then its worth the money. Not all great cars are fault free right??

And (heee right hand drive!)

My mom had a suzuki sidekick, back in the late 90's. I almost drove it into my bedroom window when my high school driver's ed teacher was TRYING to teach me how to drive a stick shift. It remained a secrete till 8 years later, when my sister was in driver's ed and he told her about it!

I want a DSI light but I cant see buying one when the only games i play on my DS are pokemon games. I don tknow how old it is, i got it used off ebay 2 or so years ago.

and....

I am so far behind in Dr Who. The last one i see had queen victoria kicking him out of England.

the end.
