Guys, guys last night Lee (strangrfiction ), Anne (annemjw ) and I saw John Mayer in concert in Wellington! It was awesome! I am unashamedly a fan, I admit it. John Mayer is amazing live. And we were in a spot where we were close enoigh to see him clearly, but on an angle so we didn't get distracted by his weird gobby mouth as he sings, lol. He was really funny and not douche-y at all. Hooray!

I'm watching a comedy gala thing on TV that's hosted by Rove, and he just gave us a synopsis of Twilight. He has discovered why the Twilight books are so popular, and "basically, it's because Vampires are hot. The main vampire, Doug, not only is he totally hot, he's also totally awesome at baseball, and if you invite him to a party and hang him from the ceiling, when the sun hits him, the cat lights up like a mirror ball. And in the second book, he makes a mix tape for his girlfriend. O. M. G. How dreamy is Doug the Vampire? I wouldn't mind getting impaled by him myself, if you know what I mean. Sex. I mean sex."  I love Rove.

in other news, I went to Armageddon a while ago and met Paul McGann. He was so lovely. I was going to get a signed photo of him as The Doctor (to go with my Peter Davison autograph) but when I got to the table where he was signing, there were a bunch of Doctor Who pictures and one Hornblower picture, and (Anne says this was adorable, but I am mildly embarrassed by it, lol) I kind of went "Omigod Hornblower!" and Paul McGann kind of chuckled and I said "Oh no, now I have to choose! Doctor Who or Hornblower!" and Paul McGann was all "Go on, get a Hornblower one" and I said "I think I'm going to have to!"

Anne was a bad influence at Armageddon, actually. She was like my little shoulder devil, telling me that I absolutely should buy a set of three daleks

In this pic, you can see Aimee's "time-turner" from her Hermione costume when we had our Time Travel-themed party a while ago, lol.

I have kind of been avoiding Livejournal lately, because I really don't want to be spoiled for new Doctor Who. It starts on NZ tv this Sunday (!!!!)

In other news I have a new job, which is much more fun that my old job. I'm working for Wishbone with my friend Sarah, and it seems to be going well. The only downside is that the way the roster works, for half the week I open the store at 7am, which means I have to get up by 5.30am to make sure I can be up in time to walk 15mins to the bus stop to get there in time. It's more tiring on those days just because I am up so early, even though I finish at 3pm for that shift that when I'm on closing, which is 8.15 - 6.15.

I've been playing a secret game at work. We are right in the CBD, so we get a lot of men in business-y suits come in, and so each time a see someone wearing a tie that corresponds to one of the Hogwarts houses, I give them house points. So far this week, Ravenclaw is in the lead, with Slytherin in second place and Hufflepuff in third. I was surprised to actually see two people this week wearing red and yellow striped ties. Lol, I am so lame. >_<

And on that note, I'd better go to bed soon since I have such an early start in the morning.

Later kids

Oh, and I don't know if this is true, but I think I saw Orlando Bloom the other day. I saw a guy and I remember thinking "Haha, that guy looks like Orlando Bloom! LOL" and then Sarah said at work the next day that her friend ahd served him in a shop, so I'm thinking that maybe it actually was Orlando Bloom. So random, lol.

Aww, those Daleks are adorable! I can't decide which one I like best. I have a couple of Daleks myself, one of which is a 'mutant reveal' one so that when you pop open the front you can see the little alien inside. It's so cute :) I'm trying to limit myself to only Dalek figures because it would probably get a bit crazy if I started collecting Doctors and companions...I'd have to buy them all, wouldn't I? lol

If by 'bad' you mean 'awesome', of course.

Points by tie is awesome. I love it!

You say lol a lot, and it amuses me :D

First, oooh enjoy the new season of Doctor Who. It is made of the awesome.

I hear you about avoiding LJ...people are generally good about making sure no spoilers leak out of their posts but a misclick and then all hell breaks loose!

Sounds like you've been having a really nice time! John Mayer, Paul McGann and then catching a glimpse of Orlando Bloom...cool!

Also, I love the game you've started at work. That's hilarious!

So jealous about Paul McGann!! I fell in love with him on Horatio Hornblower years before I even knew what Doctor Who was, so I commend you for making the right decision. =)

I LOVE Hornblower. Mr Bush was my absolute fav. I was the same as you, saw Hornblower ages before ever seeing Doctor Who.

I love the bit in Mutiny, I think, where he and Kennedy get wounded and Bush is all 'Oh Noes! I'm dying look he's killed me there's no hope I'm a goner!" and Kennedy is manfully professing that his is just a flesh wound and then Bush gets better and Kennedy... doesn't.

Actually, my favorite part in the whole series is in Examination for Lieutenant when Pellew sees Hornblower steering the fire ship and is all :O "HORNBLOWERRRR???!!!!!"
