I'm fairly used to weird dreams. By all accounts they usually make sense shortly after I wake up. It's after a couple of hours that it strikes just how genuinely WEIRD they are.
So my husband and I have gotten series 5 of the new Doctor Who
from Netflix and have been gleefully working our way though the episodes. Matt Smith is a adorkable, and while he is not David Tennant, he's doing a damn fine job of establishing his own idiosyncratic version of the Doctor. He even wrote fanfiction for it. (Ascended fanboy, in a sense, much like Tennant before him and of course series executive producer Steven Moffatt.)
The last episode I watched was The Time of Angels
. Those of you familiar with the new Who, know o the rather infamous episode "Blink" in which Steven Moffatt successfully scared the SHIT out of everyone, adult and child, who watched it.
"Don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you could believe, don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't blink. Good luck."
The cosmic horrors known as the Weeping Angels return. In the first part of a two parter. And let me tell you, I wasn't happy when I heard that the Angels were returning and I certainly
wasn't happy about the episode last night. Steven Moffatt is very, VERY good at scaring you shitless.
He's also very good at tugging on your heartstrings, if "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances" and "The Girl in the Fireplace" are any indication.
Because I can't stand the Weeping Angels and have been having nightmares about them for the last couple of days, I decided it was time to binge on Slayers Try
to try and get something funny implanted in my brain to dream about instead.
Didn't dream about the Burn Notice season finale, though, as most loose ends were tied up and I usually don't dream about that unless I'm dreaming of Miami and suddenly Bruce Cambpell walks by but it's NOT Bruce Campbell he only looks like Bruce Campbell...
So when I started dreaming I was dreaming of Slayers
and the Weeping Angels.
Yup, apparently Zelgadiss had some sort of immunity to the Angels because he's part golem (something about stone being immune, I guess?) and Lina was attempting Dragon Slave them out of existence. I think she decided to use the Giga Slave when I woke up. And was confused as all get out.
"What the FUCK did I eat last night that would make me dream about that?!"
Anyway, post lunch will find me making phone calls on the behalf of the KNRC. My main concern is getting my cell phone to cooperate, especially since the battery is getting old and dies a lot quicker than it did when I got it. Of course I have the charger handy, but that's a royal pain to deal with. Oh well, not much I can do about it.
