New beginnings

When did I become bored with snow? I looked outside this morning, saw a fresh batch had fallen, and thought "Oh blast, more cold white stuff". It would seem that with the turning of the decade, I've turned into an old lady.

The Doctor Who-finale, and David Tennant's last appearance as the saviour of mankind and the universe, left me decidedly unimpressed last night. Why couldn't they have let him go out with a bang? After 4.5 years in the role, it seems the least they could have done. What was the point of bringing Donna back if all they would allow her to do was swoon in the street? Just so they could make her say "Did I miss something...again?" at the end? The DoctorDonna deserved better. And where did The Master go? And I don't even want to begin to think about the improbability of a planetary near collision without any accompanying disasters. Gallifrey appears in the sky, and it doesn't even block out the sun or the moon? Fi, scriptwriters!

I think I'll miss Ten. Though I never felt as moved by him as I was by Nine, I did come to like him quite a bit, and I wonder whether Eleven will manage to stand in his shade.

Though I don't usually do New Year's resolutions, I think I'll make an exception this year. I need to get back on line, and fast. I've been pottering about trying to restore my Internet access and getting nowhere for long enough now, it's time to call in the cavalry (by which I mean I'll pay for someone to come in and sort it out for me).

You and me both. We've had so much snow already, and are expecting more today, so it's lost its charm for me.

Good luck sorting out the internet. I've missed you!

I've missed you, too. It's not easy keeping up with the flist if your phone's your only means of access.

I was thrilled to get your Christmas card this year. Such a lovely picture of you and Tyson! You were a beautiful bride, and you both looked so radiant on your wedding day. I hope you've had a brilliant first Christmas as man and wife, and wish you all the best for 2010.

Thank you! That was one of my favorite pictures from our wedding. So far, it's been a great Christmas and New Years.

Yes, come back to the internet!

I'll do my best!

There's so much to see and do!

Just finished watching it myself.

Apart from the improbably slow death (and yes, I know that radiation sickness isn't instant, but that kind of dose should have been within a few minutes)and the partial regeneration bullcrap, I feel that without Bernard Cribbins, there would have been no emotional impact for me at all. And I agree, the DoctorDonna should have been better used (and who did her hair and makeup for the wedding scene? She looked terrible - they should have chosen more flattering hair, at least!)

I agree with your feelings about Ten. I still miss Nine. Not sure about the way Matt Smith's going at Eleven though. The ADD Doctor? Great. *pfft*

The protracted death irked me too at first, until I remembered that the TARDIS allows The Doctor to travel in time as well as in space, and so all his farewells in past and future could have taken place in the space of a few minutes, after he got zapped...though even so it's a bit of a stretch.

Can't see much in the way of change between Ten and Eleven yet...though I daresay that'll come once Matt Smith settles into the role.

Happy Twenty Ten To You!! Thanks for the Chrimbo Card! - I refused to send any this year because I want to sent Change of Address ones instead! - ONE DAY!

I held off watched Dr Who because I thought it would be real sad. But it wasn't! Kind of disappointing - I giggled more than cried ;)

Keeping everything crossed that you will get to send out those cards in 2010!

[waves] I am resolving to try to come back to LJ more. I miss my friends here, and the peace I get from writing out my thoughts. Thank you for your beautiful Christmas card. I wrote all of mine out the last weekend in November and never got them in the mail.

They say we may have snow here tomorrow, and I really don't want any. I am a warm weather kind of girl, and snow once a winter is really more than enough. Ah well, since I can't control the weather I'll just try not to freeze. :)

Oh yes, do come back; and I'll make an effort to come back, too!
