It was pretty neat but I never saw any filming done, I think it was all happening at night.

I dunno why it was easier for them to fly everyone to Australia to pretend Melbourne was Boston than just filming it in Boston. *L*
Ha! That is funny! And really neat. I liked that movie.

Gods, I hope they don't go any younger with the next one, who- and when-ever that may be... I think they were going to go with someone a bit older after Mr Tennant left, but Matt Smith's audition impressed them so much they just went "bugger it, we don't care how young he is".

And to think people thought Tom Baker was too young at 40 when he took the role...
I have yet to see any Tom Baker episodes..... I'm looking forward to them. I've heard they're awesome.

I understand the remark

Don't worry about it Tara...I don't watch Dr. Who (even though I do get BBC America)...so I have no idea what's happening in that series

I spent all day on the couch yesterday and am guilt-free.

And thank you. The family is doing remarkably well. For the last week of her life, she had been declining very quickly, and the end came fast and she was asleep/at peace when she went, which is good. I will have to take a few hours off of work to go to the funeral, but thankfully my boss is lovely and was totally fine with that.
That's good your boss understands... I unfortunately had to go to a co-worker's funeral last year, and the managers were very understanding about letting everyone go, even though there weren't many people left in the office.

The earlier ones are more awesome than his later ones... but he was the Doctor for so long there is still a lot of awesomeness there. I watched Robot a couple of weeks ago (his first story), and it was hilarious in many different ways.

Oh yes, I was going to say about Tom Cruise - I'm old enough to remember when Top Gun came out and people took him seriously then... how times have changed.

Crumbs, that was before my time in the PGP! I think he'd had it cut by the time the tour came to Aus and I rediscovered my inner U2 fan.

Oh yeah, I had a Tom Cruise poster back in the day.

However... I know I'll need to climb back in my box after this statement, but I still like him as an actor. Admittedly I haven't seen everything he does lately, just the MI movies, War of the Worlds, and some others but I still enjoy his acting in those.
But it's his acting only... I don't know what the heck is with him in real life.

And oh I've posted that pic of the U2 eggs I think every Easter since 2006, so you may have seen it another year.

Sadly, not much. It's been really quiet around here lately. The last thread took over 3 months to finish!

Yikes! I miss the good old days where we'd just about burn through a thread or two everyday. What happened! For me. the reason I haven't been around is that college has all but taken my soul.

I admittedly haven't seen a lot of his films either, probably none since Mission Impossible... you can still appreciate his acting while being baffled by the rest of him!

Maybe I have then... memory fail.

I'm too old and slow to keep up with that sort of pace any more...

How's college going? What course are you doing?

It's going good. Right now I'm working my way up for a diploma in EMS Professions and a degree as a paramedic. I know for sure that it isn't for everyone, but I knew this was what I wanted to do the minute I saw what they do. Saving someone's life would be an amazing accomplishment. On another note what I'm taking right now is basic psychology and I really hate it. There is a special place in heaven for those who major in it.

Wow, good on you! You're right about it not being right for everyone, but paramedics will (unfortunately) always be in demand. Is the psychology something you have to do as a breadth subject? I did a bit of it at secondary school, I enjoyed it then but we didn't have to do a lot of statistics.

I look forward to the end of next month, when they show one of his stories.

Jon Pertwee is weird, though. I like him and all, but I find him a little weird. And, as the Doctor, his reaction to seeing himself in a mirror for the first time since his regeneration was pretty damn giggly. And I do enjoy the Nestene Consciousness.... and UNIT. They're both turning out to be much more fun than I thought .


I don't know if he I can remember a time he's been taken seriously... I only started paying attention to that side of the movie business back in 2002. Before that, I didn't really care about stuff that wasn't... um... well, I didn't really care about real life side of entertainment. Still don't, really. But, if I'm watching the news and they talk about it, I will pay attention

I like him as an actor too! As a person, he freaks the hell out of me.


It's the same with Mel Gibson. I think he's a terrific actor. As a person... I refuse to comment.

hey flybabe!

wow bless you for going for the EMS all medical work has ot levels of stress but Emergency stuff got to be up at the top!

you'll just have to go belt out U2 and other fav songs in the shower as a
a stress reliever!
If you think about it there should be aq psycholoy class for
EMS workers for themselves, working as a team and helping thbe injured.
