Jesus Wept...

I thought I had had a pretty rough weekend and was in need of some sympathy. Then I backread my friends list. Muggings, broken bones, poorly cats, doom, gloom and horror...

Note to self: there's always someone worse off than you.
Note to f-list: anything I can do, I will (obviously if it involves money we have a problem, but if you need an ear, or advice, or Mat to bake you cookies...).

Waiting for Mat to eat his breakfast, so I might as well give you some...

Fresh Squeezings from the veins of the internet!

And today's Meme: Could You Pass the UK Citizenship Test? I passed with 75% and so did Mat, with 80-something, but such luminaries as James Graham, Bridget Fox, and Will Howells are in the queue for deporting.

What's your score?

The other thing I'd like to tell you about is [personal profile] amazing_holly's school report, which I received this afternoon. It's excellent The attainment ranks go from 1-5 and the effort ranks are A for above average, B for average and C for below average. She got 1A for most things (including literacy, numeracy, art, science, and music) and 1B for most of the rest, except for listening to the teacher, in which she got a C for effort and ICT, in which she got 1C - i.e. she is well ahead of the rest of the class, and therefore doesn't put any effort in and finds it boring.

She's so much like me it's uncanny.

Oh. My. God.

That was actually GOOD. Better than good. It was great. Pacing was perfect, suspense was building, ending was a stunning cliffhanger: wa-HEY!

I was SPOILER! ) when Rupesh SPOILER! ) because SPOILER! ). And Peter Capaldi is clearly SPOILER! ) which is SPOILER! ) because that's a bit predictable. Is his secretary SPOILER! ) by the way? I forgot to check the credits.

I liked Tim/SPOILER! ). He was a nice quirky detail. And I loved all the little domestic touches. Stephen's mum and SPOILER! ) were a nice character study, and Ianto's SPOILER! ) were a scream. And the couple stuff between SPOILER! ) was just SPOILER! ).

I didn't like the fact that there weren't that many good female characters in comparison to male characters, and the outstanding new female character was the woman who SPOILER! ). They could have had one of the ministers or something be female. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing SPOILER! )'s character develop. She looked pretty cool. And pretty. But A+ for racial and sexual orientation diversity (which is normal for Crotchw00t, really), even if they had a bit of genderfail. And didn't Colonel Mace have a GORGEOUS voice?

All in all, I am really looking forward to tomorrow :D YAY! I ENJOYED IT!!
