i had the most excellent & doctor whoest doctor who day ever yesterday. i had work for the first time on a saturday for months. but it was alright since my boss wasn't there (hence me being there..) and i managed to somehow do lots and then also wrap most of the post (as the chap who does the wrapping phoned in sick with a cold, blah) i bought some estonian ciders, and some cookies, crisps and guacamole on my lunchbreak for snacks and carl got some rum and coke and doughnuts on his way home. snackalicious. i made awesome burgers with guacamole & guyere cheese for dindins which we finished just before the new doctor who was on. whee!

my appropriate and obvious choice of outfit for the night, my the who's t-shirt from teefury! (blurry picture thanks to carl's ipod way after bed time)

after doctor who we watched x-factor which i not so secretly enjoyed and carl didn't complain during almost at all (magic of rum rum rum) and something else and then we watched the five doctors, which we got courtesy of our lovefilm subscription.

(cosmic angst!)

(no, not the mind probe!)

you have no idea how much i admire the second doctor's style. srsly.

not so impressed by sarah jane smith's mac though. or maybe it was just that mac combined with that dress. on their own; hell yes. together; not so much.

i've come to the conclusion i need some more classic doctor who in my life.
in other news, we are going to a surprise 90th birthday party tomorrow. that's two firsts for me in one go! oxfam perks.

so yes, i went to finland last month. i've been back for a couple of weeks now but i haven't had the brain power to actually post anything about it. too many goddamn photos. but here be a little bit about the first part of my trip!

first of all i went to tampere to see the ark 'one last time'. part of my 'look' was an epic sleeve of temporary tattoos. it took us over an hour to do while waiting for the gig to actually start. it was epic, and probably one of my best bad ideas ever. though it was a bitch to get off. i still had remnants of it on my arm more than a week later, despite vigorous scrubbing. i think it was worth it though.

(after we finished the sleeve / a lot later the same night after after partying at our car on the parking lot w/ sylle)

during my travels i had knitted a little doll sort of resembling me to give to ola (the singer) to give to his little girl. sadly i didn't actually get a chance to give it to him so little tukru is still with me. somewhere in here. i might re-do her actually cos i'm not enterily happy with her hair. and some of her filling is a bit iffy = scrap yarn because i didn't have enough actual filling with me..

i don't particularly want to talk about my trip too much, i'm internally saving it all up for another issue of your pretty face. and part 2 (the goodbye part) of the ark zine. but i'll tell you this; i had excellent time on my the ark adventures. i had excellent company, and i must confess if i hadn't i would have probably been miserable for some chunks of it when things went wrong, like when it rained the whole night in vasa and the only part of me that wasn't soaked through was the top of my head (thank you trusted bowler hat!) and i'm now looking forward to actual one last time in september with these crazy bitches. i haven't actually booked the flights yet, but i'm hoping to do it this weekend. i've got the holiday booked off and everything!

maybe i'll write about the rest of it later. i don't know.
