According to The Sun*, President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe is hoarding long-lost episodes of Doctor Who.

*Yes, I know.

...was at 1:00:30 into the episode, where the Doctor is saying his final goodbye to Wilfred:

'cos that's me, in some ways...

Oh, and also why this episode was fanfic (spoiler within) )

(thanks [livejournal.com profile] teacantata for catching my typo)

"The first series was aimed at adult audiences, but in the second series a specially-edited repeat will be shown that's suitable for families and kids."

"The kid-friendly edited version will be shown a few days after the adult version and is likely to be a few minutes shorter."

You think?

After all the innuendo is excised, they'll be able to fit Trchwd in the break between programs.

Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred. It's hard to believe they're now 64 and 45 respectively...

I have met both of them (Syl at a KERA pledge drive, Sophie at a convention in St Louis); both were nice.

This also was Anthony Ainley's birthday.


(Doctors I have met: Pertwee, Colin Baker, McCoy)... I don't remember meeting Davison at the second WhoFest...

The Doctor's new companion is... a familiar face.

*sigh* We have to sit through 13 weeks of spoiler ).

It's unusual for me to remember dreams. That makes the night before last unusual because (a) I remembered my dream, and (b) it was very very weird.

The dream was a movie trailer starring the hip, manic black comedian of the moment. He was lying on a table, spread eagle, with the camera positioned above him. Then the camera started zooming in on his bright red shorts. And closer, and closer, to the point where the camera gets microscopic enough to fit through the fabric.

And the camera kept zooming in -- so follow me now, we're inside his shorts -- and thankfully instead of Hip Manic Black Comedian's genitals, we see a diagram of the internals of said area, a highly detailed textbook-style artistic diagram -- one like you'd find in Gray's Anatomy.

But then -- and this is the weird part -- the diagram turns into an animation, and it morphs into the female version of the diagram.

Then the camera starts pulling out, back through the shorts -- and we close with a shot of Hip Manic Black Comedian, now with boobs, thrashing about and screaming bloody murder.

We fade to white, and the movie's title comes up on screen: "YOU'RE PRETTY".

I did warn you it was weird.


So at work I've been busy updating our database of San Antonio roadways. I have decided when I become Emperor of San Antonio my first decree will be to rename every north-south street Harry Wurzbach, and every east-west street Military. Just to keep things clear.

(For everyone but [livejournal.com profile] aggieteacher00 and [livejournal.com profile] amothea: San Antonio has three major thoroughfares named after the Wurzbach family: Harry Wurzbach Rd., Wurzbach Rd., and Wurzbach Pkwy. There are also four separate thoroughfares named Military: SE/SE Military, W Military -- in two parts -- and NW Military. To further add to the confusion, NW Military used to be named Wurzbach Highway.)


Missed As the Geiger Counter Turns -- aka Jericho -- because Thank God You're Here has been moved into that timeslot. I'll pick up Jericho tomorrow night.


Houston-types: I'm thinking about having some folks over Saturday afternoon after Lai Lai's to watch the new season of Doctor Who. Any interest?

Billie Piper to leave Doctor Who

The last time I got to work from home due to a bomb threat, that is.

I work in a high-profile building, 40 stories up. If it were a different building, or lower to the ground, I would have considered staying. But my boss told me today would be optional to come in. And who can resist working in their jammies? (Thank goodness for PCAnywhere, so that I can get some work done.)

Speaking of work, I should get busy. This database isn't going to clean itself up.

Ooo! The new Doctor Who DVD set arrived today! If you haven't seen it yet, it's incredible.
