well, bugger - and a Very Important Poll

Patrick McGoohan shouldn't be allowed to die. Above all, he shouldn't be allowed to die and be faced with a pathetic lack of shit-giving. Grrrrrrr. I intend to set Rover upon the British media, until they relent and waffle about him like they (quite correctly) did Oliver Postgate. The man was a barking mad genius, and WE LIKE THOSE.[Poll #1331950][Poll #1331950]£10 stretches to 2 of those, mostly, with a bit of creativity and me not minding going over.  And I reserve the right to ticky all the tickyboxes, because all of those would be quite nice, after all.  (Apart from the kittens, because Prettygirl is allergic, dammit.  My cat-ownership plans are borked!  But for a much nicer reason than 'my boss said bugger off', so yay.)  Still, am a bit torn, and I am already late sending a thank you, but I hate not thanking someone specifically for what I got even if I might as well be thanking them for the new Brows That Are Furrowed CD by drum'n'bass'n'spoons'n'shit newcomers The Downhome Fucklebunnies.  So please help me to be less rude than I'm already being?

Tell me good Three to watch?  I have seen, um...Spearhead, Inferno, Claws of Axos, The Daemons, The Sea Devils, The Three Doctors, Carnival of Monsters, The Green Death, The Time Warrior.  I love: ridiculous shit.  I'm thinking Time Monster, Mind of Evil, Invasion of the Dinosaurs - but if anyone would like to prod me in any particular direction, feel free...

21 Three and Jo icons, because they are pretty and really quite shippable in an asexualist sort of way.

Carnival of Majesticalness!

I have finished Carnival of Monsters, and can at last cheerfully declare that I love all the Doctors. Phew.

Drashigs, Tiny Little Harry, and why companions make all the difference )

I need to watch some more Three. And construct that 'Five Things of Who' doodah. And write some Twofic. And tag [livejournal.com profile] torch_wood. And make a new header. And possibly some icons. Oh, fandom, you waste my time so beautifully...

I have broken Jo Grant

I hadn't watched any Three in literally a decade, not counting The Five Doctors, and reckoned I was slacking on the Jonlove. So I watched The Two Doctors, and continued to slack on the Jonlove because of all the Patlove that was going on (he so utterly steals the entire thing it's almost embarrassing, except no one could possibly complain what with him being Pat, and thus Brilliant). And lo, I was struck by how lovely Jo was with her knicker-flashing, and I didn't mind that she was a bit useless, because she had really good boots that I did envy very much.

I think my first ever encounter with Jo was on some retrospective, where Katy was talking about how she never had her specs on and thus never had a clue what was going on, and I thought, awww. That'd be me, stumbling around after the Doctor, not having my specs on. And she's all girly and perky and has Mick Ronson hair, and how could anyone not think she was cute as a button?

Only then I watched the dvd extras, and there was Katy Manning at some con and I WANTED TO STAB HER.

And now I'm trying to watch The Green Death, and all I can think is I WANT TO STAB YOU.

I think this is why I don't go to conventions. I'm not very good at the whole fiction/reality divide. She is spoilering it, though! I want to look at the maggots, and get hoity about the accents (Prof Clifford is from some suspicious northwesty place, very dodge), and all I can think of is how much I...wish to do something. With knives.

Also, I am not at all feeling the Jonlove. I'm just not getting it. What is the deal with Three? What am I meant to like? He is smug and sort of unconvincing. *cries at failure to be proper old school*
