Running With Rum

November 15, 2013 by


Soundtracks are really great for writing background music. They’re intentionally mood music and usually instrumental so there aren’t any words to get in the way. Rather than listen to entire soundtracks I usually just steal individual songs for my playlist. Songs that, now I’m thinking about it, tend to have a specific theme: running. Maybe that’s […]

Changing Timezones is a Little Like Side-Stepping Into Another Universe

July 9, 2013 by


So my sister? Lives in the Torchwood Hub. Okay, not the one in Cardiff. But this is clearly an Australian outpost. She told me they found a pterodactyl when they moved in, so I was kind of expecting it. Especially after I confided this to her and admitted that they did in fact have a […]

Matt Smith’s Hair Should Get It’s Own On-Screen Credit

May 31, 2012 by


So for those of you who’ve been hanging out for the new season of Doctor Who… this probably isn’t going to satisfy. But if you’re paying attention in the first few seconds you’ll notice that it was written by ‘the children of Ashdene School’, which is interesting. I mean, how does a school go about […]

Because Words Mean Different Things to Different People

February 22, 2012 by


Sleeping well is only waking up three or four times a night rather than more. Sleeping well is being able to roll over and go back to sleep at least 75% of the time. Sleeping well is not being either trashed or manic as a result of lack of sleep all the time. Sleeping well […]

The Prequel to The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe

This. This is what I like about Doctor Who. Okay, not the only thing. But prequels of TV episodes, even if they are not always downright hilarious, are a particular brand of awesome.  

This Can Only End One Way: Horrible Serial Murder

October 27, 2011 by


A couple of people have asked me where I draw the line between what I write for the world and what you only get if you knock on my door.* The answer is: not a lot of places? I mean, I’ve written a few posts that are essentially, ‘I am an idiot six different ways’, […]

This is Not About Clowns

October 21, 2011 by


I have a new theory. Doctor Who doesn’t like humans, he likes the British. That’s why he spends so much time on Earth during this relatively short span of time. After a certain point in history, once they’re off parading around the galaxy, they’re just people. He prefers them when they’re still British. I really […]

Draconian Vendettas and Cake

September 22, 2011 by


Me: My brain hates me today. It is a block of wood on top of my neck mocking me about my inability to form sentences. Wuffie: *head pets*. That’s no good on the block headiness! Or should that be headedness? Me: I don’t even know anymore. On the up side, if you don’t sleep at […]

Life Advice for the Unwary

September 19, 2011 by


I spent the weekend not working. I know, we’re all shocked. But it meant I got to spend some time reading. (Yes, that’s what I do when I’m not working. Okay, I also take naps. And there may have been a thing with a bonfire and my ears freezing. But that’s not the point.) Since […]
