It's been a long day....

Well the title says it all. Unlike a lot of Saturdays where things are fairly sedate I've been running round here there and everywhere.

First up was an early start to ( well early for a Saturdy) as I had to go and visit the tire place to get a new tire for the car otherwise it's not going to pass the MOT. Of course the weather wasn't co-operating at this point as it was raining! The price for tires had also gone up slightly but it was still better then most places.

I then rushed home to have a quick breakfast as Grumpy wanted to get into town bright and early. Unfortunatly he got hung up with a phone call so we lefta lot later then he wanted. Which meant we would only have time to do the shopping and come straight home. I couldn't do anything I wanted.

So after setting a new speed record for shopping we got home and Grumpy had to rush out, which gave me enough time to put all the shopping away and then go out again back into town so I could do everything I had wanted to do!

Which included having to go and get a new windscreen wiper ( don't ask).

Finally after getting that all done I had to rush home as I had a lot of work to get done as I'm now doing this new ( stil secret before you ask) project for work I'm going to want my painting schedule to be as clear as possible. On the plus side I was able to watch a new futurama DVD while doing it. The second movie isn't as good as the first mind, but it's still good.

I'm also not going to be able to do a bulletin tomorrow as no one sent me any announcements. Which was annoying as I thought I was making progress. Oh well back to the drawing board with that I guess.

Then finally it was time. The moment I had been waiting for all week. TV on, Drink close at hand, mobile switched off. Yes it was time for the Season finale of Doctor Who and I still can't talk about it. Mainly because there is no way I want to spoil this for Scully. It was great and it was an extended episode ( warning for you there scully). Suffice to say it tied up a lot of story lines and several people got happy endings and unfortunatly two people did not and one of these was especially heartbreaking. But I won't say anymore ( in fact I might have already said too much). If you haven't seen this and intend to whatever you do stay away from any mention of it on the internet. You do not want this spoiled.

ITV was showing the film Kindergarden cop at the same time. You could tell there schedulers were just like " Hey lets just shove anything on, it's not like anyone will be watching this channel anyway).

After that I caught up on a bit of reading before watching a film of " Lord of the Flies" which was interesting as I've heard people mention the book before but I've never got round to reading it or know the story.

Anyway after that it was back to do some more painting to try and get the army I'm working on asap. Once it's done it's onto the secret project. Mwah, ha, ha, ha......

Okay's that enough of that.

Later folks!

I still have a ways to go, seeing as how we finished up with 'Forests of the Dead' last Friday and then had to take a break for the the 4th of July yesterday. Not to be unpatriotic or anything, but fireworks don't usually start until 10pm, so they could have just aired a new ep. Plus it was raining off and on all day here, which meant we were inside most of the day anyway. I seriously missed my Doctor fix. But I'm so looking forward to chatting about it. Or, you know, commenting about it.

Busy, busy, busy... doesn't that equal happy, happy, happy?

What is Doctor Who?

Saxon said...

well there are some great episodes coming up. Especially the next one. It was geniunely scary and creepy.

Saxon said...

Doctor Who is a british SCI-fi show that started back in the 1960s.

To quote wilkepedia
"The programme depicts the adventures of a mysterious alien time-traveller known as "the Doctor" who travels in his space and time-ship, the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a blue police box. With his companions, he explores time and space, solving problems, facing monsters and righting wrongs."
