in which I talk about music, the Master, and... the Master...

Imma talk about music, because I'm just that cool.

Okay, there are a couple of songs that are really freaking awesome. Well, more than a couple, but I have a few I really am obsessed with lately.

1. 3rd Planet by Modest Mouse.
WHY I LOVE IT: The lyrics are amazing, and the melodies are gorgeous. Plus, his voice... is lovely.

2. Yes by Coldplay
WHY I LOVE IT: His voice. It's beautiful.

3. The Greatest Story Never Told by Murray Gold
WHY I LOVE IT: Despite the fact that it have no lyrics (minus some chanting), this song is beautiful. It has some of the most amazing melodies I've ever heard in my entire life. Plus... Doctor Who, yo.

SO! Now I'D like to know: what are 3 of YOUR favorite songs, and why do you love them so much??

Anyway, in other news, I printed out a picture of the Master to hang on me wall, above my Doctor Who shelf. Because, um yeah, I have an addiction to that man. Heh.
Well, anyway... I also printed out that cheesy B-movie-esque picture from The Stolen Earth/Journey's End... y'know, with all the companions and such. It's lovely.

I really love the Master.
Also, I'm a creeper. Wanna know how? Well, friends. I'll tell you. So I made this Facebook profile for the Doctor (name's John Smith, hee hee) a while ago. Every once in a while I go on and update me status, talk to one of my fellow Doc Who friends, and the like. So, recently, I got the brilliant idea to make the Master one too!!! So I did. (HIS name is Harold Saxon. Woo!) And so I had him add the Doctor, and then my friend Rose. She was SO confused when he started spamming her... and even more when the Doctor started telling him to GTFO, essentially.

So yeah, I had about 3 browsers open with all the accounts open... it was fuuuuun.

in which I bleed and read books about demigods.

Today, I finished the fourth Percy Jackson and the Olympians book (The Battle of the Labyrinth) and holy cow, it's amazing.

I have this habit, you see, of coming into books by seeing the movie. Horrible, I know, but what can I say?
For example, when I was about 5 my dad tried reading me the first Harry Potter book. Being 5, I said "noooo" because at five I liked The Boxcar Children. By the time I was 7, the first movie had come out. I went to see it, and... well, how could you not love it??

So, I went home and picked up the first book, and the rest is history. By the time the second movie came out, I'd read the first four books and was thoroughly addicted. Now some people might say I'm not a TRUE book fan if I saw the movie first, but I beg to differ. I think that if the first movie, one of the only ones that stayed true to the book I might add, inspired me to read the books and fall in love with the characters because of how they were written (NOT because they were hot or something because, come on, I was seven) then that's a GOOD thing.

Anyway, Percy Jackson was the same way. My 12-year-old brother started reading them last year, and tried to get me to read The Lightning Thief. I got all the way to right after they got out of the Lotus Casino, and then got bored and started re-reading a Doctor Who book instead. But then the movie came out. And I was PISSED, because they changed everything!!! And the only attractive character (Luke) was killed, which I was fairly certain didn't happen in the books. So I picked up the Lightning Thief and read it. Then I grabbed Logan, shook him by the shoulders, and demanded book two. He informed me he only owned books one, four, and five. I nearly exploded. So I had to wait for our next library visit to gobble up books 2 and 3.

Now I've finally finished book 4, and with only one book left to go, I can hardly believe I'm nearly at the end. I feel like I'm reading Harry Potter 7 all over again; excited, but sad.

As a complete opposite, I got into Doctor Who via the books. My darling bestie, Rose, loved Doctor Who. I'd never heard of it, so she loaned me one of the novels. I believe it was Peacemaker (one starring Ten and Martha). I loved it at once. I read Forever Autumn and had started another one before I even saw my first episode (which, for the curious, was The Runaway Bride. I freaking love Donna. I did from the moment I saw that). Now, Doctor Who is practically my life.

SPEAKING OF, I'm rewatching The End of Time tonight hopefully. I'm really excited, because I loved that episode. It was sad, but it was also brilliant. I love the Master. And the Doctor.

Anyway. I cut my finger on a broken cup. It hurts.

This has been a super long post!!!! So... bye!

in which I have an EDITOR!?

so, hey. you know how i'm writing a book? it's called secrets, and i squee about it from time to time...

well, my dear friend emily goodnow hooked me up with this writer guy who will be critiquing my book/editing it/apparently really enjoying it, as he said in his email!!!

here's a bit of what he said:

"This is a really good story! I’m absolutely amazed at the level and skill of the manuscript. After merely reading the prologue, it was abundantly clear you have all the talent needed to succeed as a writer. You know how to tell a story. "

so i'm basically peeing myself over how excited i am. i mean, this gives me a REASON to actually finish it now! i have an EDITOR!

anyway, i'm super duper happy.
that's all for now...

Not gonna lie, I usually don't get why girls are into the whole "two guys kissing" thing... but this made me understand. Dayum. LOVE.

in which Audrey talks about life, Doctor Who, and such

...briefly, of course.

life or something like it

life as of late, in case all you were curious...

it has included Doctor Who (as usual), Percy Jackson (love), and feeling ill-ish (orange juice for the win).

SO! Just watched the next episode of DW: S5. The Beast Below was really good; not AS good as the premier, in my opinion, but pretty damn awesome. The alien was wicked cool and Amy is still brilliant. The Doctor was a little spazzy, but that's okay.

Well, that's enough rambling from me, eh? Adieu, my friends.


in which Audrey obsesses about children's movies

such as:
PONYO! Oh my goodness, it was the cutest movie I've ever seen! I absolutely adore it. If you haven't seen it, go watch it now. It's amazing.

In other news, I have another follower!!! HI EMMA!!!! *waves crazily* The number five makes me feel special. But hey, if we can get TWO MORE, we'll have my favorite number, which is 7. And then, 6 more and it'll be my other favorite number, which is 13. SO: tell your friends about this truly amazing and fascinating blog!!! It will make me happy. And if you follow me... I'll most likely follow you back, cuz all my followers are cool kids. Yo.

Do you like the new musica? I love it. Flogging Molly for the win.
Anyway, I'm on break now!!! Such joy! I'm also watching the next episode of Doctor Who tonight, hopefully. I am so excitedddddd. It makes me wanna fall over with joy.

And that's all for now. Adios, lovelies.

in which Audrey stabs Charles Dickens

not really, of course.

but oh my god, a tale of two cities is making me want to poke my own face in. why why why must we read this!!!!??? i'd much rather just read percy jackson. now THOSE discussions i could get really into. *nods*

speaking of, the third book is SO good so far. i'm halfway through it at the mo. joy!

in other news i'm having a sleepover on thursday!!! we're gonna watch back-to-back twilight and new moon (since i haven't seen new moon) and mock them to our heart's content. you know, the funny thing is when i first read twilight i really enjoyed it... now i reread it and can't imagine why i was so infatuated with edward stalkerpants cullen or why i felt sympathy or even friendliness towards bella eff-my-life swan. the only character i still love (and the only one who made breaking dawn slightly uncrap) is jacob check-out-my-bazillion-ab-muscles black.

anyway... in other news, friday night i'm going to watch The Beast Below, episode 2 of season 5. I am sooooooo excited right now. Matt Smith is kinda brilliant. although i must let it be known NO ONE will replace david tennant for me. i love him beyond all reason and he will always be my doctor. but just like chris eccleston and david tennant, matt already seems like the doctor to me. and amy is just amazing. in time she may become my favorite companion next to donna. because NO ONE beats donna.

here is a picture of donna:

seriously, there's just something about those two that is just amazing. the best best best team to rule the universe.

welp, adios my friends.
love and lemmings,

Shiny New Doctor is Shiny

Oh my lord, Matt Smith was so brilliant!!! I love him already. He's amazing.

And Amy Pond is one of the coolest companions ever! She's right up there with Donna, far surpassing Rose as far as badassery and just as clever as Martha. I love love love her.

Basically, it was brilliant. I got to watch it here: http://www.drwhovids.blogspot.com/

And it saved my soul. Oh my Gods.

Anyway, I'm reading the second Percy Jackson & The Olympians book now, it's so awesome!! I'm also finishing Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris, which is hysterical. And for school we've started A Tale of Two Cities. Did you know the first sentence in the book is a paragraph long??? Oy vey. Anyway, a lot of reading coming up...

Ooh, did I mention the TARDIS? It's gorgeous, I think I like its new interior better than the old one. It's very cool.

To quote the dearly beloved Tenth Doctor....
And just for fun...

in which Audrey attempts to be eloquent

well hey there, readers! how are you today? ah, never mind. no one answers that when i ask it anyway. you may notice i am not using caps today. that is because i am feeling quite lazy.

it is so close to spring break i can nearly taste it. for the past week i have not had to wear my big jacket. this is extremely good news in my humble opinion, for you see, this means it is spring.

i hate it when you can't express brilliant plans because they are a surprise for someone. it's really really frustrating. (i'd like you to imagine that the second "really" is in caps. thank you.)

soooooo! HA HA capslock key is for winners.
i really don't know what i am talking about.

is it bad that i'm already bored with my new blog design? i'm thinking polka-dots. i also need a new, springy-er playlist.


how about a haiku?

this one is entitled, "the last of the time lords" :

the lonely angel,
but he has a heart to spare;
the oncoming storm.

this one is entitled, "the boy who defeated a dark wizard with a stick, a sword, and a badass cloak":

green eyes are glinting
as his lightning scar burns hot
and the dark lord dies.

i enjoy haikus. they make me laugh.

this one is entitled, "audrey needs a life":

i talk to posters
and don't make a lot of sense.
this blog post is done.
