nausicaa83: (<life on mars> stay)
A good thing about this crazy hellish weather is that I sleep less, and thus my fandom evenings get longer. This is how I spent last night (with the occasional break to stand a bit under the air conditioning):



There was one lovely moment when Gene Hunt said he loved pink wafers and I squealed "me too, me too!" at the screen. :D

Today a long-awaited package arrived from Amazon:



The first book on the left is actually a gift from my cousin and her boyfriend that I found on the kitchen table when I came back home, because they're adorable, and it deserved a picture. I finished The Ocean At The End Of The Lane in two hours, and let me tell you, it was terrifying. You know those nightmares you get when you're a kid, so real and detailed in all the ways they're gruesome? In other words, think Coraline for adults. I'm so going to sleep with a nightlight tonight. That is, if I manage to fall asleep.

Not to say I didn't like it, I thought it was brilliant, one of his best. But I'm also seriously thinking of putting it in the freezer.

Obligatory entry with pictures I forgot to post the other day because I'm lazy. :D


I finally found Avengers action figures that include Hawkeye and Black Widow! Yessss! The Disney Store in Florence is five times bigger than the one in Venice, and it felt a lot like Heaven. :D The Phoenix Wright game is a birthday gift from [livejournal.com profile] juuhachi_go, I started playing it yesterday, and besides a strong deja-vu for all those laywer shows I used to watch when I was a kid (Perry Mason anyone?), I also found out I could never be a lawyer. Five minutes in I was already shouting at my character to just shoot the witness because he was obviously the killer. Oops. I'm having lots of fun. :D


The plan was to put them on the shelf with my Marvel comics, but that's too low a shelf, and Sakura would play with these figures in a second if she could reach them, so I put them on the Tolkien shelf instead. They get to guard Fables and the Walking Dead, it's a good gig. ;)

Got to rush, I just remembered that the second episode of Neverwhere is airing in a couple of hours. I listened to the first episode yesterday and I *loved* it. I'm a huge fan of the book, and was waiting anxiously for this radio show. At first I thought it was a bit confusing for those who hadn't read the book, but after a few minutes it completely won me over. James McAvoy as Richard is amazing, and while everyone is superb, my favourite one so far has to be Anthony Head as Mr Croup. My god, he's brilliant. Also sounds a lot like Herc when he's bitching at Douglas, which is at times both incredibly creepy and absolutely hilarious. Talking about hilarious, Richard calling Hunter a "hooker" over and over again made me almost fall from the couch laughing. I'm a bit sad Romola Garai got such a small part, though. Still, they're all incredible, and I can't wait for tomorrow, when we get to meet Benedict Cumberbatch as the angel Islington. Perfect casting is perfect, everybody go home.

My fourth year at the gym officially started tonight, and it was a success! We have a new instructor, she'll stay with us the whole year, and she's adorable. Very sweet, with a wonderful smile, and she kept a nice relaxed pace the whole time, even stopping when a friend of mine got a bit light-headed and had to sit down. I had a bottle of sugary water with me, so I managed to do all the exercises, even the jumps that I usually hate.

In other, wonderful news, Neil Gaiman is writing a new Doctor Who episode! Since The Doctor's Wife is hands down my favourite episode, you can imagine my joy. When I read that article I jumped up from my chair and started singing We Are The Champions out loud, picked up Sakura from the couch, and did a little dance with her. She didn't appreciate it very much. :D

Now, I should be making dinner, but I don't feel like cooking. Breakfast for dinner it is then! \o/

New pretty nails! This time we chose a simpler design, with flowers and dragonflies because of the spring. ^^





Today I finished reading Marvel 1602 by Neil Gaiman, and I loved it. It's my fourth graphic novel so far, so I only know the superheroes from the movies, but it was still exciting to recognize them even in this context. I still have to read something he wrote that I find less than amazing. *___*

According to this, Good Omens is set to be made into a four-part tv series.

One more time with feeling. Good Omens. Tv series.

I'm trying not to get too over-excited, but no luck. *jumps up and down*

2010 was the year I started my Neil Gaiman marathon, i.e. reading every single thing he wrote. It all started with American Gods, its complex storyline, its great characters, and the fascinating modern look at ancient gods.

On other news, I have an Hot Fuzz moodtheme and it is awesome. *___*

That's an easy one. My favourite book among the ones I first read in 2010 is certainly Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It's hard to choose a single quote, because the whole book is so brilliant!

"He had heard about talking to plants in the early seventies, on Radio Four, and thought it an excellent idea. Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did.
What he did was put the fear of God into them.
More precisely, the fear of Crowley.
In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt or browning, or just didn't look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the other plants. 'Say goodbye to your friend,' he'd say to them. 'He just couldn't cut it ...'
Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large, empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.
The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. Also the most terrified.
"

They say it's going to snow tomorrow. I still think it's too warm for that, but we'll see. I still don't feel any christmas mood, but I've decided I'll make the xmas tree next wednesday, see it that helps. ^^

It was supposed to arrive yesterday, instead it arrived today. Better late than never. :D


My plan to get everything Neil Gaiman ever wrote continues its course. And I have all those Chuck dvd extras to see. I'm such a happy nerd right now.

About real life, today I recieved a call from the hospital, and I have my first MRI on 23rd November. Switching to MRI is quite a big step ahead, it means enough time has passed from my surgery that I can take just one medical exam a year, and that's all. I'm both excited about this, and scared because my sis did dozens of those, and I used to wait outside for her, and it kinda brings back lots of bad memories. I'm going through a lot of conflicting feelings right now, so I think I'll go and play the drums for a while, nothing beats stress like taking it all out on an innocent plastic game controller.

I really like this fall. We're getting lots of warm, sunny days, and even if the air is colder, it still feels a bit like summer. And there are all new episodes from my favourites series. ^^

Yesterday we had the first episode of the fourth season of the Big Bang Theory. I must say, it was up to the past season. Lots of Sheldon, lots of Penny, and the nurse from First Aid is back. Plus, I'm loving Amy, I do hope she'll be in more episodes, because she's amazing. :D

Then we had the new episode of the Vampire Diaries, which confirmed my love for this season. The story keeps being intriguing, Alaric is back, and that kinda sidetracked my mind half the time, and the Lockwood storyline is finally getting interesting. I still want Bonnie to die a horrible death, let's hope my wish will come true in the near future.

Look what just arrived in the mail!


I can finally watch Kick-Ass in glorious HD on my TV. And I was so curious about Gaiman's Mr Punch, as he always said it was his favourite work of his. Yes, I'm working on getting everything that man ever wrote. :D

On related news, tonight we'll have the Supernatural premiere. Since I live in this godforsaken hole of a country I'll have to wait more or less ten hours before I can watch it. Please, please, do not spoil anything. No spoilers, and I'll love you forever. Spoil me, and I'll wait in my S.U.V., blast me some speed-metal - 5.1 surround sound, heavy on the bass - and someone will be getting mowed down.

Bonus points if you get the reference. ♥
