YAY :D  
First, and most importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the ever-so-wonderful teenelizabeth! :D Your awesomeness knows no bounds, which is why I can't find the words to describe it adequately. ♥ Suffice to say you're loving, you're generous, and you write excellent poetry. 8D Hope you had a downright fantasmic twenty-first, and if you show me a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt, I will show you a birthday drabble just as soon as I finish killing some plotbunnies and nailing their hides to the barn door as a warning to the others. ^^

In Me News, I knew today was going to be awesome at 9:40 AM.

That's when my Swedish teacher told us how it had been a holiday in Sweden yesterday and pulled out a bag of cinnamon buns for us. 8D

Then we played Pictionary on the chalkboard. :D

After that, Joseph and I got our critique in Theater 11, and, as expected, Prof Chris wanted MOAR MOAR MOAR, but he said that I did really good work with my two big monologues, which made me unbearably happy. :3

Aaaaannnnddd... yeah. If you see

Student, talking about the protagonist of 1984: He's the last of a dying breed. He's like the unicorn of this little world--

Teacher, already laughing: A unicorn in a snowglobe...

show up on Overheard Everywhere, you know who to thank/blame. XD

...no, I don't get it either. XD

Buuuuut... my Creative Writing story is due two days later than I thought it was! REJOICE! 8D

Also, on my way to the bus stop en route to Safeway, I saw David Tennant's face in the window of the bookstore at the corner. Yes, fangirls have a sixth sense for these things.

C'mon, you would've noticed, too. XD

In any case, I got all excited and resolved to go check that book out tomorrow, because it looked damn shiny. But, as luck would have it, when I glanced at it on my way back from Safeway, I noticed that there was only one copy other than the display one.


Accordingly, I went home, jammed all my food and shit in the fridge, and then immediately went back to the bookstore to look at it.

Now you can look at it, too. And at my unattractive hands.

So I'm paging through this book in the store, going "Well, it's kind of a kids' book, but I guess it's pretty cool." It's one of those PLAY WITH ME! sorts of books, and it does work as a bit of an encyclopedia for the different episodes -- on the "42" page, for instance, you can guide their ship across the sun:

And you can run the countdown to them getting fried:

On the "Smith and Jones" page, you pull out the tab to lower the Juddoon spaceship, and it gives you more information, see? 8D

At this point -- and I can only read two thirds of it, because the other pages spoil episodes from Series 4 XD -- I'm like, "Well, okay, this is fun, and cute, and pretty innovative, but do I really want to spend ten dollars on it?"

And then I turned to the last page.

And saw the POP-UP TARDIS.

Then I bought it. XD

There's a Time Travels one, too, apparently. I MUST FIND IT. New project. :|||||

In any case... I then picked up another gem:

Your eyes do not deceive you: The Manga Edition of Hamlet. XDDD

There was also another version that was, like, SUPAR-ANIMANGA-STYLE, in which Hamlet had blond hair with one lock of his bangs really dark, and everybody was super-super-bishie, and there was lots of negative space, but I liked this one better. XD

I was paging through it, laughing to myself a LOT, but the clincher was when I got to the "Get thee to a nunnery" argument with Ophelia.

For some reason, when she's trying to give his tokens back, she shoves this rosary at him, and it goes FWIP and cuts his eye. Blood goes everywhere, and it's all like AAAAHHH, and he delivers a few more lines in iambic pentameter, and that's all nice. Then next scene, he's got one normal eye, and one black-bloody-DEMON-eye, and I'm like, ".....o... m... GWTFLOL," and... you get the idea. XD

Then, when the players arrive, he comes back with this pimpin' pirate eyepatch, and... yes, I bought it. XD

Horatio is the Indian guy. I have no idea why he's Indian. You would be, too, if you were Horatio in the Manga Edition of Hamlet. Don't ask questions. XD


...then I finally sat down and did my homework. lulz. XD

Aaaaand now I need to go type up fic. Why oh why oh why do I keep adding progressively more characters to "The Hunt"'s peculiar AU. XD THIS FIC IS GOING TO BE A MILLION WORDS LONG THE DEATH OF ME.

<(^_^<) (>^_^)> <(^_^<) (>^_^)>

Feeling: gigglygiggly
give me time. and a crayon.: PWNDthe_gabih on October 6th, 2009 07:29 am (UTC)
I haz the Doctor Who book already, so there! :P (I think. I've certainly got a lot of them, anyway.)

Your Swedish teacher is awesome and LOL unicorns! xD My friends and I had to read out our commentary on another group's satire piece in English Lit yesterday, and we took every chance we could to drop in the word 'ninja'. We were about 500 words in when the teacher called us out on it...

Well, I imagine they're easier to come by in the source country... Half Price Books is actually really anomalous in that they have a lot of British stuff, as well as used stuff and whatnot. Whereas usually our only British import is Harry Potter merchandise. XD'

IKR. And hahaha, ninjas versus unicorns plz? No, everyone's brains would explode from too much awesome. XD

Hey darling! ^^
I'm glad it sounds definitely as a nice day! And congrats for the monologues!! \o/
And lol for the shopping at the bookshop :D
Good work with the fic again! <33

It was! :D And thank you!! ^^

Haha, I'm such a predictable fangirl. 8D And like I was saying earlier -- I can't wait to see what you guys think reading it, lol! XD

A unicorn? Is he Charlie? XD

That Tardis is UH-MAY-ZING.

I think that's at my library. I shall have to check out Gothic Bishie!Hamlet.

I REALLY HOPE SO. I should write my paper on this theory. XD

Totally do; it's hysterical. XDD

Why am I not surprised to see that it came from Half Price Books!? That store's the greatest for weird finds... and lovely purchases. I really want the Dr. Who Encyclopedia and keep hoping it will appear at my Half Price. So far the only thing I've found is sticker books in the kid's section.

A unicorn in the snow globe... all I could think of was the Orson Welles "Rosebud" scene at the end of Citizen Kane... the sled was in a snow globe, right? Then again, I'm infamous for my pop culture film noir references.

I don't even know if you're referring to the quote in class or some quote on that site...
Vitamin C: Ten :)tierfal on October 7th, 2009 01:57 am (UTC)
It's like a treasure trove! :DD And goodness, yes, I need to comb their shelves one of these days -- I can only imagine what fantastic Whoness I might find! ^^

Hahaha, I think so--? Another famous, epic movie I haven't actually seen, oh dear. XD'

Oh, it actually got said in class. I'm still completely mystified as to what the hell it's supposed to mean--! XD

Your Swedish teacher is amazing. XD

Yay!! :D

....sorry, do you mean Mello/Near or Matt/Near? I could do both if you like! ^^;

Absolutely! :D One of my TAs last year kept bringing us cookies all the time because she baked when she got stressed, and it was awesome. XD She also brought us candy for Valentine's Day. 8D

Thanks!! :3

Hi, just dropping by to grab your Swedish teacher. xD


Vitamin C: Misatierfal on October 7th, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
I should seriously loan her out. But you'd have to pay cash. XD


TY, BB!! \o/

Oh, you have NO IDEA how much I've missed you and reading your entries! ♥

Cinnamon buns = fantastic omen. =D

Oh, WELL DONE with your critique! I bet the monologues were just brilliant, sweetheart, go you! *cheers and waves pom poms* ♥

*giggles like a loon*

It sounds like today's been fantastic for you, m'dear, huzzah!

A book with our dear Mr Tennant's face on it can only be a good thing. *nods* I'm glad you had chance to go look at it!


Of COUSE you bought it after that. I would've too - despite the fact that I quite literally have about £13 ti my name at the moment, and that's got to last 2 weeks. Which is harder than one might expect on an art course. XD

Good luck finding the other one! Maybe it has a Dalek, or a 3D Doctor... =D

Oh, they do LOTS of the Shakespeare manga in all the bookshops near me - admittedly I think Hamlet is probably one of the best adaptions, but I liked the "Much Ado About Nothing" one too, and the usual "R&J" and "Midsummer's" suspects. I argue that they're educational, hence it's ok for me to spend my meagre funds on them. =]


Good luck with the fic! It's allowed to be a million words long, but not the death of you please, sweetie. We'd miss you!

Love you, honey! ♥
Vitamin C: L and Misatierfal on October 8th, 2009 05:45 am (UTC)
Awwww, I've missed your enthusiasm about them, darling!! :3

Thank youuuu!!! ♥ ^^

Hahaha, having that book on my desk has made this week significantly better, lol. The power of fangirldom! XD

Oh noes to low funds, though! D: The worst thing in the world is having to choose between sensible purchases and shiny ones. ;__;

They had Macbeth, too, I think, but I mostly just giggled myself silly over Hamlet, so that was the one I picked out, haha. XD They also had, like, The Wizard of Oz or something totally cracked-out like that--! XD

Haha, I'll see what I can do to prevent "fanfiction" from being the cause of death on my death certificate, lol. XD Hopefully it'll be a lot of fun to read! :3

Love you, too!! ♥
