Flaily reaction to Sherlock

Despite my Busy Day of Stupid, I took a break this morning to finally watch Steven Moffat's Sherlock. Daaaaaaaaaaaa-uhm. Also, how? How does he do it? The man just finished Doctor Who!!! Granted, I know that his part's been wrapped for a while now, but still! I'd take some time off after that, hang out and just be adored. He... goes and makes more magic!

Needless to say, I am all kinds of envious right now. And it's all percolating in my head, how that creativity must just beget more creativity, because there's no other explanation for how this happens. And the question is how to execute that, not in some crappy formulaic way cranked out for mass audiences, but in a way that goes beyond but still manages to connect with people and still challenge. And still have me sitting on the edge of my seat, marvelling at how the pieces are falling together. That's the goal, for me, and that's what this man manages to do, time and again, taking the familiar and riffing it new.

Sorry, gushy fangirl here, but like I said, just daaaaaaaaaaa-uhm.

Doctor Who just rocked my world

I'm speechless, utterly speechless. Except for the love sonnets I'm composing to Steven Moffat right now, of course.

Is it easter yet? *bounce* Also, activist hats

I know Steven Moffat's already married, but I wonder if he needs another wife... or maybe a love slave... even just a slave...?

In more serious news, Dennis asked us to use our powers for good and spread the word about what's happening in Uganda. [personal profile] aldiara made a fantastic post urging people to speak out against the fuckwittage. I never know how useful petitions are, but hopefully the increased awareness will do some good.

Thanks to [info]sarcastic_jo's new icon, I don't even have to review "Silence in the Library."

Happy Tuesday news

To quote [info]sarcastic_jo:


Steven Moffat to be Doctor Who Lead Writer and Executive Producer

Steven Moffat says: "My entire career has been a Secret Plan to get this job. I applied before but I got knocked back 'cos the BBC wanted someone else. Also I was seven.

"Anyway, I'm glad the BBC has finally seen the light, and it's a huge honour to be following Russell into the best - and the toughest - job in television. I say toughest 'cos Russell's at my window right now, pointing and laughing."

Sleepless nights

My sleep schedule's been getting more and more out of whack, but now it's well and truly screwed. It started with yesterday afternoon's latte. (Yes, caffeine hits me hard; I know better than to drink it after noon.) I was wired when I went to bed at 1:00, so after tossing and turning for an hour I got up. Did all but one of my editing jobs for the day (figured I couldn't write so I might as well edit!) and finally fell asleep around 6:00. The animals woke me at 10:00, demanding breakfast. Instead of going back to bed I stayed up and finished my other job, wrote a bit, and then fell asleep around 4:00. I just woke up, totally wired, and there's no way I'm going to get to sleep tonight.

And there's not even a new SGA to keep me up!

But I do have the winter night. We just had our first big snowfall last night, and with a bright moon reflecting off the white it creates the most gorgeous light imaginable. Sleep's not too much of a sacrifice when I've got that.

Tonight's project is to try to hook up the new cordless phone/answering machine combo that the ex gave me. (The 3/6/9 row on my old phone's dialpad wasn't working -- not very useful when all my calls are in the 613 area code.) And after that wee challenge, I might just have to watch Never Mind The Buzzcocks again and nurse my love for Noel Fielding. There's something about that man that makes me laugh like I've never laughed before!

For another laugh, the Doctor Who/Steven Moffat fans on my flist must watch Time Crash. If you haven't already. I'm usually waaay behind the curve.

I hope all my American friends had a happy thanksgiving yesterday. Reading about all your feasts makes me miss that holiday and all its gluttony. ;)
