I HAVE A NEW LAPTOP AND IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IN THE WORLD. IT IS SILVER AND HAS TWO CPUS AND 80SOMETHING GIGASOMETHINGS AND IT IS CALLED RODNEY.

I’M SO PLEASED WITH IT AND IT’S SHINYNESS I CANNOT STOP TALKING IN CAPS.

Annnnnnd today two kids in the shop where I work were doing Dalek impressions. And Star Wars battle droid impressions. See? If you love both those things, you get a double helping of yay-kids-like-our-fandom-ness.

I keep thinking I should explain the Reinette music video, although that is never a good sign of something if you have to explain it. So, it’s little!Reinette dreaming, right? It goes through her-as-companion (the bit with the Doctor standing against the TARDIS looking at her), and her seeing Rose and a glimpse of her future (that bit of Doomsday with her clinging to the lever) and then some of what actually happened in GITF, like the Doctor seeing into her mind (where he sees- or possibly she sees, I’m not sure- flashes of Rose, Sarah and Romana and what happened to them) and *takes deep breath* then there’s the bits with Rose and Mickey and all the New Series companions (Jackie included) over the words ‘I could do most anything to you’. So essentially, it is Reinette being warned in her dream, ‘IF HE WALKS INTO YOUR BEDROOM, THERE IS AT LEAST A 50% CHANCE THAT YOU WILL END UP CRYING ON A BEACH.’ And then at the end you see Reinette sleeping and Rose waking up, which is meant to say, ‘Hey! You thought all the sepia bits were Reinette’s dream, but maybe you were wrong and all the colour bits were Rose’s dream and I just didn’t tell you HA.’

…good lord that was a long explanation.

What else? Ooh, I watched The Producers (the original) last night. I saw it properly a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Quote icons may well be coming up shortly. Currently I am bargining to take the DVD with me to university, along with Pirates of the Caribbean (when the friend I leant it to gives it back) and Spirited Away and all three Indiana Joneses.

So, today would be results day, then.

Someone! Make me feel better by commenting on the fanvid below this post which I was really proud of but is sitting there lonely and unloved! For nothing sucks more than something you loved doing sitting on it’s own in a post with no comments. :(

*has no shame*

Just saw John Barrowman on How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria. I’m going to be laughed at for saying this, but I actually found the whole thing throughly enjoyable.

I’m also going to be laughed at for saying I actually squeed at the trailer for Raven: The Island that followed it. ;) I can’t help it. It’s…like a gameshow that takes place in what could just about pass for Middle Earth*, with costumes and strange names and a Scottish bloke who occasionally changes into a raven. I loff it. And now there’s a new one, yay.

Oh, and I also found a job today. Very, very randomly.

*But is probably a small forest round the back of the studio.
