Caught Fire and Where’s Hugo Update?

Last night I went to the cinema to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I loved it! It pretty much plays out the book as follows, but overall I was really impressed. I’ve only just read the book actually cause it seems I but these books and only manage to read them just before the films come out, but that’s a good thing cause I had the story in my head. There were a few if I were being picky bits missing and personally for me, there was not enough of the lovely Finnick Odair (I know he comes across as a bit of a pervert at first, but theres more going on with him than either Gale or Peeta!). As male characters go, he’s a much more stronger character than Gale or Peeta. As Gale is being fronted as a main character, he doesn’t do bugger all for the first 2 books and I always find Peeta a little too wet behind the ears! I think they cut some bits out of the movie because I’ve seen the stills and some bit weren’t in it! I could have done without the dripping water too as I need the toilet halfway through (I went before hand – trust me!) and this DID NOT HELP!!

The most highlighting bit of the night actually didn’t happen in the movie. There were these people who got moved to the front before the movie started, I’m not sure why and thanks to them, I was so busy being annoyed at them talking, I missed the Katniss and Gale kiss!!! But they kept getting up and going out and by halfway through, they left and shouted goodbye to everyone (like we knew them!). One person summed up every ones feelings perfectly by telling them politely to eff off and got a big round of applause.

And now to the second part of this post, Hugo watch!!! He’s been found and is bringing two of my favourite things together by being on the Christmas Celebrity Come Dine With Me!!! They must have known I was talking about him! I watched the first Made In Chelsea special of Come Dine With Me and I can’t remember if he was on it, I don’t think he was, but that was a good one. Please keep me up to date with anymore on the Hugo Watch hotline!!

And finally, need I say more but 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who tonight!!! More post show tomorrow!

The Unwritten Laws of Ebay Bidding

I am sorry for not posting yesterday but I was all posted out by then.

I am still on the hunt for the next set of dvds after season 4 of Doctor Who, which is the specials. I went to town yesterday to look in my usual haunts, but sadly, I could not find them (or Grey’s Season 8). I was until this morning, the highest bidder on ebay on them, at a very good price, but as I am currently limitedly (that’s not even a word) funded on paypal, I have a budget. And I was all happy until some fecker (mind the language!) came in and outbid.

I think there really needs to be some unwritten law on ebay that if you really really want it, then everyone else should just politely step out of the bloody way and let you win it. My worst are those who have shown no attention on the item until the last 30 seconds and then bloody swoop in like vultures and steal it. I remember a few years back I was the highest bidder till the last few minutes on an Apple Mac Book and someone swooped in and ended up out bidding me at the last minute by 50 bloody pence (too many bloodys, I do apologies!).

I’m gonna wait a little bit more, but if I haven’t got it by next Sunday, I think I’ll either just get it off of Amazon or I might cave and sign up to Netflix! To be far it’s cheaper than ebay actually, the price on there for some of them are extortionate!

In other news, in a few days I shall be bidding farewell to my friend of 2 years, my Samsung Galaxy Mini. We’ve had some great times together, but it’s just time for me to move on. I thought about maybe upgrading her to the new Samsung Galaxy Mini III but my eye has been swayed by the iPhone! I don’t know but I just always fancied one and lots of people have them so they can’t be all that bad!

Clothing Of The Day: My Jersey Tall Trousers came from South@Very and they are so bloody comfy and they are long enough so wahey!!!

The Ultimate Cross Over

There is a good chance that I am currently under some sort of delirium from becoming a bit of a Hermit and watching way too many episodes of Doctor Who, but I had the idea for the best crossover ever. This also may be due to the fact that I am currently on a Thor high (not a drug, the movie!) after having seen the trailer for the 2 film yesterday.

How about a Thor and Doctor Who crossover!!!! Technically, this could actually happen, because as we know Asgard is a part of the Universe and the lovely lovely Thor lives on Asgard (I think!), and correct me if I’m wrong, but after watching what feels like a gazillion episodes of Doctor Who, I do believe Asgard got a name check. And yes, you are all so right in the fact that I must have far too much time on my hands to be able to think of all this. I really do, it’s quite sad frankly!

But ladies and gentlemen, a very sad event did indeed happen today – I finished the final of the seasons of Doctor Who I had ūüė¶ I had forgotten how good the end of Season 4 was with all the cross overs and what not, but yes, it’s official, I now have nothing to watch (disregarding entirely the 9 pages of movies and all those episodes of 90210 plus whatever the hell else I’ve recorded – I think I should lose the batteries!). I have two leads (get me – like a spy!) on ebay for the specials that follow from David Tennant to Matt Smith, so let’s hope I win. but if not – I’m ready to discover, what news shows should I watch or which shows should I rewatch?

However, I really think I need to get back in to some of the other things I should do instead – the story certainly isn’t going to write itself, plus the other bits I need to do.

DIY Of The Day: a) I removed the clamp from my curler at last but b) lost part of it in the process but hopefully should work.
Nails Of The Day: I actually did my nails today!! I have on my all time favourite black A England Camelot and Model’s Own Thunder and Lightening, with some nice little decals.

Putting Out a Plea!!!!

The library has failed me. The dvd store that stocks 2nd hand dvd’s has failed me. I have only got one more place to try, and that’s the charity shops. Trust me, whenever you want something, go to the charity shop and you’ll get it, works every time.

I am slowly but surely coming to the end of my season 1-4 boxset of Doctor Who and unknown to me, it doesn’t go up to when Matt Smith becomes the Doctor, that’s the specials, which is a separate boxset entirely! So I had planned to get it from the library or me dvd store. Well, neither of them had it. I also need to complete Grey’s by watching season 8 and they didn’t have that either.

Now, I’m no cheapskate! I will buy something if I need to, but as I don’t own the rest of them and can assume that when they do finish (dear God, I hope they never finish Doctor Who,) they will release a boxset. But the past boxsets don’t seem to be that cheap. Usually you can get the older ones cheaper.

I have formulated a plan that goes as follow:

– Check all charity shops and also ebay. They only problem with ebay is it can take forever to bid on something and in the end you don’t even bloody win (negativity I know).

– Cave and buy it.

– Secret option: Get Netflixs. I have been wanting to get it for ages and, violins, I think I might treat myself to it for my birthday, as they have season 5 of Doctor Who too. Can anyone confirm if it has Season 8 of Grey’s cause they only bloody let you see a little of their supposed vast library.

I know, I have real issues if I care this much. But after this, I don’t really have any more boxsets I need to watch (apart from Chuck Season 5 which has been sat there for ages!). I should really be addressing the issue that there are not only several other shows back up on my box but also all the episodes of 90210 season 5 shown in e4 so far, minus the first episode!! I’m so behind, it’s Revenge all over again. But if I can do 18 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy in one day, I’m sure I can catch up on 90210 easily. Challenged meself!

Trailer Of The Day: Thor 2 new trailer was epic!!!!

The New Doctor Confirmed!

So the 12th Doctor has been confirmed to be Peter Capaldi. I’m not exactly ecstatic about it or anything, I really don’t know what to think.

Let’s just say, if I were to pick someone, I don’t think I would have picked him, not that I don’t think he would make a good Doctor, I just have reservation. Personally, and I’m not being ageist, I have liked the younger Doctor’s, but maybe because I’m around the same age as them, that’s why. Also, he has been in Doctor Who and apparently Torchwood, which I have see all the UK based episodes off and don’t actually bloody remember, but they don’t really seem to care about that either.

My biggest reservation, is that Clara is a lot lot younger than he is and I don’t know whether the dynamic would work. Obviously, they would have tested that or maybe Clara might not make it out of the 50th anniversary episode, I don’t know. I have like the sort of love relationships the Doctor’s have had with their companions, but this would be more like Father and Daughter.

But I’m gonna hold off judgement, because I moaned something rotten about Matt Smith and I love him as the Doctor, so you never know.

Tv Show Of The Day: Doctor Who (The David Tennant years of course!)
Nails Of The Day: Nothing.

My possible Doctor’s that will never be!!

Having realised when the show as on tonight, I will be blogging my thoughts on the new Doctor tomorrow. But all this talk about people who could be the Doctor, made me think – who would be really great as the Doctor but highly unlikely to ever be. I will say I’m not a Doctor Who fanatic, I think because I’ve been rewatching it lately, I have kinda got carried away on the excitement of it all. I’m easily lead lol! So here are my options:

1- Michael McIntyre: I think he has the right level of character to be a Doctor and his slightly camp nature if you will, would be really great as the Doctor. Also, he would be funny!

2- Miranda: I am a huge fan of Miranda, so even if it does break my “It should be a fella” rule, I think she would be a great Doctor. I think she could easily pull of a suit, or a gigantic long scarf and hat, and again, her slightly if you will camp nature and funniness would work really well.

3- Hugh Jackman: Of course, I had to back up my back up Daddy. He is such a huge character in really life that he would bring a lot to the roll and as he always has to be quite angry for Wolverine, it would be good to see him do light hearted. He can do a British accent, but whose to say the Doctor can’t be Aussie!! Why has the Doctor never had another accent (please correct if I am wrong on pre new series Doctor’s. I imagine them all to have been quite well spoken).

So there are my three who will never be. Now, I’m gonna let you in on my theory that I posted about on Twitter. David Tennant will forever and always be my Doctor and as he is in the 50th Anniversary special, whose to say that Matt Smith’s Doctor couldn’t regenerate back into David Tennant’s back. I’m ignorant to what the laws of time, space and regeneration are, so if anyone can disprove this theory, let me know.

I can half imagine me pulling a Matt Smith on the new Doctor – aka the he’ll never be as good as David Tennant and then ending up liking him. But I’ll give you reactions tomorrow!

Treat Of The Day: CAKE (Need I say more!)!!!
Nails Of The Day: Nothing.

Doctor Who Exactly!

So, new broke today that the 12th Doctor is going to be announced this Sunday. This comes as a coincidence to me, because I am actually re-watching Doctor Who at the moment – because that’s how you spend your holiday!

I have never seen any of the old Doctor Who, mostly because I wasn’t born! So, I have only ever watched the new one. Most people kind of have their Doctor and while I’ve seen the Christopher Ecclestone series and the Matt Smith years, but for me, David Tennant will always be my Doctor!! So when it came for the change over between David Tennant and Matt Smith, I was all like, it’s gonna be rubbish without him. Well, prove me wrong again, because it was just as good, not better, but just as good.

I remember when they announced the new Doctor and I was all like, who the hell is this and I hope that might be the case with the new one. I’ve seen the names being thrown around and not to be ageist or anti-women (I am one for starters!!!), but I do think it should be a young person like 25-40 bracket and I think it should be a man. I’m sorry, but I can’t see it working with a woman and why break something that ain’t broken, the formula works. And the names being thrown around, I really doubt that it will be any of them, but you never know, I just hope it works. I think you have to have a real character to play the Doctor.

Anyway, they’ll probably be a what do I think post on Monday, or Sunday.

Tomorrow’s post I promise will be more exciting – clue: SWEETS!!!!! Hell yeah!

Treat Of The Day: Jolly Rancher’s, more tomorrow!!!
Nails Of The Day: Same as yesterday, but on me last day!

Made it out alive!!

I could be really really arse kissing and say how sorry I am for not posting and crawl my way back into your hearts, but the truth is, I’ve been very very busy at work. I think for August though, I am going to try and post either every day or every other day. Here’s hoping.

This morning I had the lovely pleasure of going to the dentist. If you know me by now, you know I hate anything to do with the dentist or my teeth. The worse thing is I had to go for a filling and I had to pay the lovely pleasure of £40 for it too. But luckily, as it was a tiny filling, she gave me a white one instead of a silver one, for the same price of a silver one. So at least it blends in!

Now, I’m not a violent person by any means, but I could willing punch a dentist, because they seem to love inflicting pain, while keeping you waiting and charging you a butt load. I even had to wait nearly ten minutes today and I know that isn’t a lot compared to some dentists but my appointment was at 9:30, so I was basically the first one in! Then I had to listen to the people on the desk bitch and moan about either the other employees or someone they both knew. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard them bitching on the desk (I don’t live at the dentist by the way, I just end up going a lot!), and I could clearly make out what they were saying, maybe I should use this info as a bargaining chip to get money off my bill!

Luckily, I was a very very brave person and I had my filling without an injection, as that’s the bit that hurts the most! I was contemplating going to the mahoosive new sweet shop that opened after, but I came home instead and as I was hungry, I thought what better than a soft slice of dairylea that will give me some extra calcium!

Luckily, I’m not going back till January! Thank God!

TV Show Of The Day: After watching 7 seasons of Grey’s, the library didn’t have 8, do I am currently rewatching Doctor Who, from the 9th Doctor onwards.
Nails Of The Day: I am currently going through a Nail Envy week treatment, so I have nothing on me nails!

Who’s That Girl?

Indeed, who am I, for it seems I have not posted in a good long while. But I do have a really good reason (aka excuse!). The last couple of weeks at work have been mega crazy and I’ve literally been bring work home to do, so I’ve just had no time what so ever. But now I’m on a down, so I have a bit more time, which is fab.

So, it’s safe to say, I haven’t really been doing anything that interesting. But tonight, well, ladies and gentlemen (of Europe), tonight is the night, because it’s EUROVISION!!!!!! (stops for breath!)

If you don’t know what Eurovision is (those outside of Europe are excuse), than basically, you’ve been living under a rock. While most would define it as a singing contest, to me, a born and bred Britoinion, Eurovision is just another way of showing that while some people in Britain can sing, to the rest of Europe, we are a country that you don’t vote for, cause it’s all about the Politics. We could have the Queen on stage singing God Save The Queen, and basically, we still wouldn’t win. Most people are like me, and watch it for the sheer crazy enjoyment that it is.

You basically fall in to a few categories. Category 1, the countries that actually really make an effort with their song, produces something really good and end up with nil pwah (bit of phonetics there for you). Category 2, you basically rehash a past year song and end up doing marginally better. And then there is 3, the crazy ass countries, that produces a song so¬†completely¬†and utterly bonkers, it wins. and what’s more, they are the countries that actually take it the most seriously. Bizarre but true.

So, sorry to my fellow Britain’s, but I can¬†safely¬†say right now – we ain’t got a cat in hells chance of winning. But I’ll be there watching it. I do hope there are some good songs this year, because I still love the song that won last year, Euphoria by Loreen. I have it on my ipod and listen to it only just yesterday.

Tonight is also the finale of Doctor Who, where we¬†supposedly¬†learn the Doctor’s name. I can half imagine right now that it ain’t going to be fascinating and this is no offence whatsoever to the writers of Doctor Who, that’s just kind of how these moments go. It would be cool if it was something like Bob, Barry really proper solid names, but I don’t think it will be. In a way, I really hope we don’t learn and that this is all just hype. But, as I am going out for dinner tonight, I won’t be seeing the episode till tomorrow, because I’ll also be watching Eurovision on delay, so it’s gonna take some sheer will power to stop me from clicking on digital spy and finding out when I get home. I can tell you right now, I’ll probably know the minute it happens, I’m that pathetically sad!

I’ve also been keeping up to date with the latest shows being picked up in the States, and I am very happy with some of the choices, although I can’t really see a stand out comedy show yet, I don’t think we’ve had a good one in years, not since the likes of The Big Bang Theory, which I’m delighted to let you know, I watched some the first episode and was applauding it for years, before anyone began watching it. No jumping on no band wagon for me. the CW have some really interesting shows this year, but’s it’s Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D which I am most looking forward too. But I’m already¬†putting¬†myself in for a pit fall, because I would say Sky will snap it up and I don’t buy in to the whole Sky¬†Conglomerate¬†thing. They literally just wait for show to get good on freeview and then buy them up, they wouldn’t know how to pick a good show if it bit them. But a lot of ABC shows go to Channel Five too, so maybe, if I pray enough to the God’s of TV, they’ll repay me. If in doubt, DVD.

To update you on two other matters discussed on this blog, if you now look at my list of shows I’ve recorded to watch, there are NO EPISODES OF REVENGE! I have¬†completely¬†caught up over the past weeks. It’s so much better watching a load at one go, because you stay in the story, and I think that’s why I got bored. Also, I was a very very naughty girl and I watched that DVD I was giving someone as a present Shhhh!!!! She didn’t suspect a thing but I came up with the perfect cover if she asked why the plastic wrapping was missing, because this has happened to me before – the DVD was rattling around inside and I wanted to put it back in properly, so it wouldn’t get scratch – bazinga! There’s a great excuse for any of you thinking of doing the same thing!

Thought Of The Day: Are 99’ers called 99’ers, cause they use to be 99p (aka they are an ice cream).
Nails of the Day: Non, but someone kindly gifted me with 5 brand new OPI varnishes (It was me ssshhh!)

Sometimes Drivers are just as bad!

I’m gonna make this quick because something really annoyed me today.

I was walking home from work and there is the bit that I come to to cross, which is the entrance to a car park. I saw a car coming, but I knew I had plenty of time to cross because it’s literally about a 5 second walk. I was just stepping on to the pavement at the other side, when the stupid woman driving the car, beeped her horn at me. I was just really annoyed because I was no where near her car or no where near enough to actually get hit by her, I was basically back on the pavement and she beeped her horn. I mean, a bit of an over reaction on her part if you ask me. And I get that some idiots do walk across in front of cars even when they see them coming, but I had plenty enough time to get across. And the look on her face was all like, you idiot and all I could think of was I’M ON THE BLOODY PAVEMENT AND I’M NO WHERE NEAR YOUR CAR!! Believe me, I’m not stupid enough to cross a road if I don’t think I can make it. I’ve had people reach the crossing after me and cross the road before, I’m that careful. And I know I have my iPod in, but I can hear everything that is going on around me, and as the green cross code goes, I LOOK BOTH WAYS.

Don’t you hate it when random people irate you and you don’t even know them! At least I can write about them on this blog and they’ll never bloody know! Scratch that, if you are this person and your reading this, well, who cares, you’ll never see me again. Actually, it’s so small were basically a city named town!! In that case, I’m going ghost protocol ala Mission Impossible (I haven’t seen it and really do not have any idea what that phrase me) I’m basically going rogue, tarrah!

xoxo

PS. Even in my I’m not here but really am here state – Anyone catch the new shots of the two Doctor’s filming, we should called that geek protocol!
