Wow, it's been over a week since I posted! Unfortunately, nothing too exciting has been happening, though I've succeeded in making some interesting dinners (Thai party noodles! Tilapia with carrots and balsamic vinegar! Brownies! [What do you mean that's not a full dinner?]). I've also spent time at the beach, having my toes lapped by the gentle frigidness of the Atlantic, thrown various sports-like equipment around (I can now almost throw a frisbee in the direction I want it to!), gotten half way through various knitting projects - so... not too much to complain about. :)
One thing I did discover today is the wonders of Doctor Who
audio books. I don't know if I'm late to the game with these, but they're fantastic, and just the perfect sort of accompaniment to go with all the post-"Journey's End"
fic I've been reading.
I just finished listening to "The Stone Rose"
, read by none other than David Tennant, and he uses his actual accent for the narration and it's all very... mrow. Anyway, I highly recommend it. It starts out at the British Museum, which gives it MAJOR points for me, Mickey and Jackie are there, and the Doctor is hanging about the Rosetta Stone (which I totally did too! Isoamprobablyatimelord
). And then they go to Ancient Rome and it's awesome and adventure-y, and the Doctor has to save Rose and then she saves him right back and there are smoochies (well, more of the "I'm so glad you're alive!" lip-pressing than anything else, but you can tell the author is a shipper) and I loved it. And did I mention how it's read by David Tennant? Who's Rose-accent makes me giggle? And who's Jackie-accent is scarily accurate? Yeah. *RECS*
Also, don't forget, if you're interested, that there is a Sam/Annie prompt battle open for business at notcowards
. We need more fic!
