jayes_musings: (DW -- Five & Ten Kinky Sex Nao)
A little late in keeping up with my attempt to post weekly, but I hope it's going to be worth it. Monday, I just got back from my trip to England and a holiday with my bestie, [livejournal.com profile] gmnoonie. I did slip in a quick post of our very fun Just Jhoom class at CenterParcs, and we also enjoyed two very wonderful sessions at the sauna on site. Unfortunately, we were in the land of Internetless...and even 3G-less...which was frustrating. We did escape CenterParcs and took a day trip into Bath, meeting up with Noonie's daughter and daughter's friend for afternoon tea at the pump rooms. I may later post some pics of Bath, mainly of the Roman Baths.

But when we left CenterParcs on the Friday, we headed to Cardiff. Not only is that where Noonie's daughter is at Uni, but of course, it is the home of Doctor Who and Torchwood! And we couldn't be there and not go to the Doctor Who Experience! Actually, that was one of the main purposes of the trip. *g* (My apologies for the poor quality of some of the photos, I was using my tablet, which doesn't have the best camera and no flash :( ).

Pics of our Experience, and fully geeking out, under the cut )

Such a pity I no longer have my Doctor Who icons loaded. Fixed that!

by all the wailing and teeth gnashing that I've seen following the Beeb's announcement that David Tennant is stepping down as Ten after the specials. Jeez, anyone would think he's the only actor to have played the Doctor. Hello? He's done four seasons (plus the upcoming specials) which is a pretty good run, and while I think Eccleston's tenure was too short, that's the way of the show.

I'm looking forward to seeing who the new Doctor will be, though I'm not sure who *cough*Michael Fassbender*cough* would make an excellent Doctor. *g*

jayes_musings: (300)
Yesterday, I went and saw 300! It rocked! I went in excited and full of anticipation, especially after I got a text from [livejournal.com profile] franzi1981 that there was bare Gerry arse to be seen...but there was also a part of me that was ready to be disappointed because of the somewhat mixed reviews and that while Gerry, IMO, is always great...some of his movies leave something to be desired. No worries at all on that case.

True, it's not a movie for everyone, but I don't mind blood and gore and certainly not in such a beautifully stylised way. My inner historian was, by and large, satisified. I didn't go in expecting accuracy as that wasn't really the film's intent, sticking more to Frank Miller's story (I assume, I haven't read it yet, but it had that feel) and keeping to the spirit of the historical action...I had far more issues with Troy than with this. My one major complaint was not enough arse! That scene should have been far longer and more close up...and I shall no doubt be wearing out that part of the DVD once it's out. Gerry was jut GUHHHH!!! I'm still drooling. And the other Spartans were also very nice eye candy too (Stelios, particularly).

Yes, loved it as much as I hoped I would.

Also, I've spent the last week watching Doctor Who...I totally missed out on Nine, but I'm now all caught up there, and I love it! I'm an old school Who fan, but I never got myself around to watching the new series much...although I did manage to see a few episodes from season 2 (I was bitterly disappointed by the travesty that was the TV movie in the 90s). I don't know, maybe it's because the show is older than me, but even hearing the theme tune just gives me a lovely feeling, and when I started watching it again, it was like an old friend. And to get to see the introduction of Captain Jack Harkness, well needs not to be said. Plus....Daleks! I absolutely love Daleks...always have.

On a RL note...today we should find out our choices for our next assignment. The list of bases that we could go to is due out today. Doesn't automatically mean we'll get what we want from that list, but at least it'll give us an idea of the possibilities. So fingers crossed England is on there...and then pray to the Assignment gods.
