So… yesterday was Star Wars Day. I was the only one in the library who knew and everyone thought I was uber dorky when I told them “May the Fourth be with you”. But they laughed, and I learned long ago to embrace my nerdity and enjoy it.
I am repeating the Couch to 5k Week 1 program this week. Today I walked a bit more in the second half- but hey, walking is better than sitting on my arse in front of the TV, right?
To answer Jim’s question- A Scooba is a mopping robot. I also have a Roomba, a vacuuming robot that is named the Buffybot. The Scooba doesn’t have a name yet.
Also, I think I like the newest Doctor. I know I really like Amy Pond. She’s young but seems like she has her own mind and opinion on things- more like Rose than Martha or Donna, but with a bit of Donna’s sense of fun and won’t take any crap. She is definitely the type to get herself carried away on a barrage balloon- but I think she’d figure out a way to get back on her own. I’m still working out the new Doctor’s quirks and personality. I don’t like watching the shows as they air- there seems to be five billion commercials and the whole thing seems more rushed than watching it on DVD or Netflix. But I don’t have much choice in that. I thought the new interpretation of the Daleks is interesting. Weeping Angels epidsode is coming up, hope that is cool. Been rewatching Dr Who at lunch at work, today I start season two with David Tennant. Its neat to compare previous Doctors while figuring out the new guy. Christopher Eccelston was a bit goofy looking, but had this streak of anger and rage at the Daleks for destroying his people. I don’t think we see that as much in Tennant, but I think we saw some of that in Matt Smith in the last episode. How they dress is sort of telling as well- Eccelston’s charavter wore black leather- which when he morphs into Tennant looks a bit ridiculous. I loved Tennant’s long coat and suits. I think the billowy hunting coat was more to make him look more substantial- as Donna says, he is a skinny thing. I also think Tennant’s look and especially Smith’s throw back to an older look- maybe to make this young-looking doctors (especially Smith) seem older and wiser?
