Doctor Who Home life

Another weekend gone

Ghost from Doctor Who: The Unquiet DeadAnother weekend gone. In summary:

Helping with painting, which given it involved a liberal application of Lean Lemon, has left a certain U2 song revolving in my brain.

Absolute shocker in the footy tipping — 3 out of 8. Bah.

Inadvertently left a spot of honey on the kitchen counter. It took about 30 hours, but the ants found it and swarmed around. When I discovered them, I committed anti-cide on them.

Watched the third new Doctor Who episode, “The Unquiet Dead.” Series writer Steve Moffat commented last year that fantasy TV makers are now in the post-Buffy era, and you can see the Buffy influences in this episode. Great stuff, very enjoyable. After all these years, it’s rapidly becoming my favourite TV show again.

Absolutely no one in the office got more than 4 right. It was a shocking round. Nice to know I wasn’t the only one with 3. And we need another series that’s Buffy-esque in the humour and pace dept. That’s what made that show so enjoyable.

I got 5 this week (equal top score at work). But I know nothing about football and don’t follow it although I have always barracked for the same team. The people in the know all got 2 or 3. I think their problem is that they overanalyse.

Hi Daniel, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here, though I still read your email updates when I can. Doctor Who has been good, though I skipped the seance bit as I reckon it’s dodgy ground. Rumours abound that the Daleks will finally turn up in the next installment. Oh, and Chris Ecclestone has quit after 1 series, so there’ll be a new doctor next series……..

Would the killing of ants be formicide? (Especially on a kitchen bench).

My ants appear to have left me alone so far this year. Maybe the new people in the ground floor flats have tastier morsels.
