O! Thy random posts!

1. Things that amuse me, part one: The Vatican ought to have a pastry shop called "Donut Nobis Pacem," don't you think? (See Dona Nobis Pacem to get stupid joke.)

2. Things that amuse me, part two: Jim Carrey on how his union with Jenny McCarthy has been dubbed "Jimeny": "To be part of that tradition is amazing, to be TomKat and Brangelina, and going back to Markapatra and Napolephine. So, it’s not such a bad thing, really!" Hee hee.

3. Doctor-definitely-not-Dr-or-Il-Dottore-or-Doc Who: Have watched the first Eccleston/Piper disc so far, all of three episodes. I like it! I don't love it yet, but of course I need to time to get invested. Still, Simon Callow as Dickens was a treat; and as to "The End of the World" all I can say is: They had me at "Tainted Love." That's the kind of irreverent silliness I can approve of. (And it's probably the exact point at which several of you decided the new series sucked, which is your right, but I do love me some off-the-wall dorkiness.) Anyway, neither of the leads bother me, but Eccleston does look a lot like a former boss I had, which is disturbing, so I won't mind Tennant taking over.

4. I have this sort of ambitious Halloween idea of getting you guys to send me little sound files of you reading a pre-assigned line of some traditional ghostly tale like "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", which I would then splice together into a cool LJ-people Halloween voice montage. If interested and able to record your voice into a tidy mp3, go ahead and comment and we'll see if the idea flies. [Edit: Voice posts work. I think this can fly!]

Heheh. Well, I've now been told that I'll love Tennant better, I'll love them both equally, and I'll love Eccleston better. You can't all be right, you know. :P

(Then again, given my fandom fickleness, maybe you can...)

They're both lovely. Why limit yourself to just one or the other? :)

Early to say, but I imagine I'll happily be devoting some affection to each of them. :)

Don't get me wrong, Tennant is great and I'm really enjoying his Doctor, but then when I catch an Eccleston episode I get all teary-eyed and nostalgic because he was so utterly wonderful and it's criminal that we only got one season of him.

Nine (Eccleston's Doctor) could go from inanely joyful to hide-behind-the-sofa scary in a heartbeat - now that's acting. I was actually scared of the Doctor/what he might do, which is an unusual and highly watchable trait in a lead character.
