For a girl that had a 4-day week, I'm sure ready for the weekend again. When I returned to work on Tuesday, I had masses of work email that would have curled the hair of Montezuma. <--don't ask me what that means, the phrase just popped fully formed in my brain and I had to write it. I think I'll blame The Tick. It sounds like something he would say.
A co-worker just asked me why my eyes looked glassy. Huh. I think it's just been that kind of week.
Finally downloaded and saw the first part of Doctor Who's "Rise of the Cybermen". Thumbs up. Much better than last week's ep. But damn, London and Rose's family again? Is it a budget thing? Mickey isn't my favorite character, but I love that he understands where he is in the scheme of things--i.e. low man on the totem pole. And yeah, he's bitter, but he decided to come along so I can't feel sorry for him. I'd rather he stayed home in the first place. I'm kinda hoping something gruesome happens to him in this Cybermen adventure. Heh.
Loved this scene(paraphrased):
Doctor: Alternate worlds are like gingerbread houses! Temptations! I've got to keep Rose safe!
Mickey: Wot 'bout me? I could be tempted by this alternate world!
Doctor: I can't worry about EVERYTHING.
I also want to discuss ANTM, but I'll wait for another post. I don't feel like doing an LJ cut.
