I just checked the last post that I made and I said at one point that Doctor Who was about to start. The finale played last week. The unit of measurement for the amount of time passing between my lj posts is One Season of Doctor Who.
Speaking of, I absolutely adored Season 5. Matt Smith is so lovely, and Karen Gillam is fantastic. And Rory! Rory!! Rory is the best character in existence. Best in the sense of favourite, but also in terms of goodness. He is the best. I think my favourite episde was The Lodger with James Corden and Lady Emily from Green Wing.
I love that the History Boys cast are all ending up in DW. I really want an episode with Andy Knott. Set in England in the early 1900s. Involving a secret garden.
It's kind of amazing when you compare earlier New Who, even season four, with season 5. The focus is so different. The production and direction seems better, maybe? Or maybe it's the relief of having fun again with Doctor Who. Ten got so angsty by the end of it. Don't get me wrong, I love David Tennant's Doctor. But Season 5 is just so refreshing. I always enjoyed Steven Moffatt's episodes, and I am so so SO excited for more Who to come.
I saw Inception. It was pretty awesome. I think I need to watch it again to make sure I understand it all. It's one of those films that makes you think about it for ages afterwards. I had an Inception-inspired dream after seeing it where Gemma Aderton for some reason was an ex-employee of my work and came into the shop and then we got chased through a mall by some kind sunglass-wearing team of baddies.
Work is going as per. Nothing particularly exciting to report there. I said to Lee the other day that I need either a boyfriend or a hobby - I need something to do. Lol. You know when you say things and you're only partly joking? Yeah.
Unfortunately, I get too bogged down in work that I don't feel like doing much more than watching The Vampire Diaries when I get home (I freaking love Vampire Diaries. It is too funny. I love that the vampire actually keeps a diary, and I love his snarky brother vampire, and I love that the main girl actually reacts in the right way and isn't all Bella Swan-y), and all the boys I know, I'm really not interested in.
Which reminds me of a funny story. I got tricked into a date. A friend of mine, he kind of has this idea that we're going to end up dating if he can just engineer the right circumstances. I've known him pretty much since I moved to Wellington, and while he's a nice guy, it's really just not going to happen. It's the kind of situation where he dates other girls, but bitches about them to me behind their backs, and when he breaks up with them, texts me stuff like "I thought I should tell you that I broke up with my gf, lets hang out" and them bemoans the fact that now he's all bored and lonely and wants to be in a relationship again. It's really unsubtle and kind of annoying. Anyway, we sometimes meet up for coffee because we live realtively near to each other, and as I say he's essentially a nice guy (apart from being a dick about his girlfriends and kind of pretentious) so when I got a text from him asking to go for coffee, I figured "Sure, no harm in that." So I meet him in the usual little village between where we live, expecting a catch up with coffe for maybe no more than an hour, and he says "It's such a nice day, we should go to the waterfront and make tyhe most of the sunshine". I think, "Sounds plausible, sure". So we take the cable car into the city and wander along to the cafe area of the waterfront, but it's quite busy and nearing lunchtime. He says, "There's a nice cafe along Oriental Parade, we could try there and get some lunch". It's about 12.30, we've been walking around for about an hour and a half, so this seems like an innocent suggestion at this point. So we walk around to the beachy sunday-afternoon outing part of the Wellington waterfront, surounded by families and rollerblading couples and dog-walkers etc. The cafe he wants to go to is pretty busy so we kill some time by getting gelato, and then grab an outdoor table. The waiter rocks up and gives us brunch menus, and I suddenly realise: wait a second, how did this go from "Lets grab a coffee and catch up" to sitting at a cute little cafe at the waterfront in the sunshine HAVING BRUNCH????I texted Lee that I was accidentally on a date with this guy and she just laughed and laughed.
I was hoping that I was jumping to conclusions but then he tried to kiss me goodbye and I just really awkwardly waved at him in front of my face when he leaned in.
The thing that sucks the most is that had it been a guy I was actually interested in, it would have been a really nice date to go on.
I had a lovely catch up with Sarah today (Hello Sarah, look I updated my blog!) and met her super friend Raquel who is really cool and we should totally hang out some more.
Now I'm at home again and we're going to watch the finale of Doctor Who again because aimeesworld hasn't seen it yet. I really do not mind XD
