I have caught up with Leverage!

4x02, "The Ten Li'l Grifters Job": spoilers )

4x03, "The Fifteen Minutes Job": a list of things that made me happy: spoilers and joy )
shinyjenni: Colin Baker carrying Nicola Bryant; black and white (six peri)
- I watched "The Twin Dilemma"! ...oh dear. spoilers )

- I also watched the new episode of Leverage! spoilers )
shinyjenni: The Eleventh Doctor lying on the ground (eleventy)
- I read some Leverage spoilers and they made me VERY HAPPY. (Spoilers for casting and the basic premise of two episodes at that link.) Specifically, the bit that made me happy was: spoilers )

- On the Doctor Who front, I never got round to posting about "The Doctor's Wife" and the moment has now passed, but suffice to say that I really loved it. ♥ This week's I loved slightly less, though. spoilers ) I also feel the need to note that the first ten minutes or so of the Confidential, in which Our Heroes struggle on despite Adverse Weather Conditions (TM), were entirely adorable.

- I watched the first five episodes of The Vampire Diaries at the weekend! spoilers )

- In non-TV related news, this week is a busy week! (The good sort of busy, not the too-much-work sort.) Today I had a lovely lunch with [personal profile] fallingtowers, and tomorrow The Mother is coming down for lunch and shopping. And on Thursday I am going to visit The Sister in Spain! Er. Ash cloud permitting. I heard on the radio last night that it's supposed to be over Northern Spain "later in the week". NO THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANT. Also the forecast is for the temperature where The Sister is to drop from 32C to 14C between Wednesday and Thursday. *frowns at nature*
shinyjenni: Gary, Miranda and Stevie behind the joke shop desk (such fun)
- I have Experienced Doctor Who. It was awesome. I had a big silly grin on my face all the way through. ♥

- Look what time of year it is again!



You should all go and vote for the characters that I you love the best! Here are some of the people I have been voting for so far:

under this handy cut tag )

I voted for lots of other people too, but have fewer feelings about my choices there. Many of them seem to be either not in with the slightest chance (Teyla! ;_;) or the runaway favourite (Veronica Mars!), for some reason.
shinyjenni: Five, Nyssa and Adric in a wood, the TARDIS is next to them at an angle, text reads "experiencing technical difficulties (technical difficulties)
Leverage Christmas episode! ...I will try and make sure this is not entirely in capslock, but I am not making any promises.

festive spoilers )

And here are my (v. belated) notes from Logopolis and Castrovalva! (NB for some reason I only made notes at the end of Logopolis and for the first few episodes of Castrovalva.)
older spoilers )
...and that is where I stopped taking notes.

Just finished watching "Earthshock". spoilers )
shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (eliot)
1) Happy belated birthdays to [livejournal.com profile] revolutionaren and [personal profile] glinda!

2) I had the day off yesterday, and I have more days off on Monday and Tuesday, hurrah. Yesterday I went shopping and tried on many dresses, all of which looked terrible on me. Possibly this is my mutant power. Today I got started on cleaning ALL the things with much tidying and hoovering and dusting, so now I am exhausted. Boo.

3) Other plans for the weekend involve catching up on telly. I have begun by watching the last but one episode of Leverage (3x07, "The Gone Fishing Job"), which I loved a great deal. It made me howl with laughter many times, and spoilers )

4) Also, I knitted something! And finished it! (Well, almost, haven't woven the trailing yarn ends in yet, due to laziness.) And liked it! And even managed to take a picture of it that I don't hate.

this is rare! )
shinyjenni: Parker in close-up (parker)
I don't seem to have quite got into the swing of posting and commenting and such yet. Sorry about that! I did do that "I write like..." meme that's been doing the rounds; I plugged in no more working for a week or two, my Eight-Fitz-Anji fic, got Douglas Adams, went "excellent, that is exactly what I was aiming for!" and retired happy.

Channel Five has started showing Grey's Anatomy again, after a two year break. BAILEY IS THE BEST OF THEM. THIS IS A KNOWN FACT. Also, I like Meredith a lot more than I remember doing, and George and Izzie a little less. In the latter case, this may be due to spoilers! I am half-way through 4x13, so let's say spoilers up 'til there. (SO BEHIND.) )

I watched Leverage! It was GRATE. spoilers )
shinyjenni: Spaceship: the Liberator (liberator)
- Finished listening to "Legend of the Cybermen" last night, and I must confess that I was a little disappointed. spoilers ) Is "Night's Black Agents" worth listening to (given the above, or just in general)? I haven't heard it yet since BF seem to have had some trouble actually sending me the Companion Chronicles recently. Must email them.

- NEW LEVERAGE! more spoilers )

- Another thing I watched: Blake's 7, "Terminal". Another good episode! (I understand these are few and far between next season, alas.) Some brief thoughts: yet more spoilers )
shinyjenni: Sophie on a rooftop; text reads "wwpd?" (what would parker do?)
- Happy birthdays to [personal profile] azarsuerte for today, and [personal profile] lesbiassparrow for yesterday!

- Last night I watched Leverage's "The Juror #6 Job". Here are some words and pictures about it:
and some spoilers )

A couple of things I made for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw; it's been three weeks since I posted them, so I can link them here now! Anon/Open ID commenting should be enabled on both, unless I have messed something up (entirely possible).

1) Leverage ensemble mood theme! (The one I've been using on this journal recently.)

2) Fifteen Whoniverse icons, all eras. A few Amy/River, some other people. Teasers:

I have been rewatching more Leverage! Here are some more lists of things (I hesitate to call them reviews as there is not much in the way of analysis), these ones are about "The Bank Shot Job" and "The Stork Job".

spoilers, and a fair few pictures )
shinyjenni: Sophie on a rooftop; text reads "wwpd?" (what would parker do?)
Hurray, I finally finished it! (There may have been a lot of muttering along the lines of "why on earth is 'exanimate' a mood when 'unimpressed' isn't?" over the last few weeks.)

First of all, Leverage fans? WATCH THIS NOW. (No spoilers, many lols.)

Here is a long delayed Leverage squee post! I actually rewatched "The Two Horse Job" a fair while ago, but have only just got round to typing up my notes; as a consequence I can't entirely remember what everything I wrote actually means...

spoilers )

"I dabble."

shinyjenni: Eighth Doctor, Fitz and Anji; text reads: "time and space adventurers" (time and space adventurers)
1) Happy birthday to [personal profile] bubbles83 for tomorrow!

2.) Between the library move and being at my parents' for Easter, have not been around much recently, and since I am away again next weekend this is not likely to change; if there's anything from the last week or so or in the next week or so that you think I should/would like to see, leave me a link! ♥

3.) I think Dreamwidth may have been looking through my brain for ideas for their new features; now if you click on someone's icon it takes you straight to their userpics page, and the drafts saving feature now saves subject lines etc too. I like!

4.) Sign I have possibly been watching too much Leverage: I found myself in the hat department at TK Maxx and the first thought I had went: "ooo, that looks like a hat that Nate would wear. I should TOTALLY buy it." I did not in fact buy it, so there may be hope for me yet.

5.) Also in the watching things department, "The Eleventh Hour"! I liked it a lot, though there was one thing I didn't like. all thoughts under here, with spoilers )

5b.) My sister, this weekend, on New Who as a whole: "They have spent too much money on effects and not enough money on QUARRIES." ...I cannot fault her logic.
shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (scoundrels)
1.) Happy birthday, [personal profile] stellastars!

2.) I have been listening to Sian Phillips talking about Juliet and her Romeo on Woman's Hour. It sounds interesting; any Bristol or Bristol-adjacent people interested in going?

3.) LJ's question of the day is about the first news event you remember being aware of. Sadly in my case the answer is "Robbie Williams leaves Take That", I have a very clear memory of Newsround showing footage of hordes of weeping fans. OH SELF.

4.) Here is some more Leverage squee!

'The Mile High Job' and 'The Miracle Job' )

I keep looking at the list of Leverage episodes and going "yay" at all the awesomeness to be rewatched soon. Tonight it was "The Wedding Job" and "The Snow Job", here are some words about them:

also pictures )

(People on my flist who are not interested in Leverage: I am very sorry. I will try and post about non-Leverage things every now and then, honest!)
