“That’s absolutely coming. You’re going to find out very soon, and that means we have to do it next series, really… The critical thing here is I want to explain who she is, not explain away who she is. If you don’t deliver on most people’s expectations, and you just say, ‘Ooh, she’s a specially programmed android who believes she’s the Doctor’s wife,’ people will go, ‘That‘s a cheat.’ You can’t do that… It’s a really good story, and it’s sort of the story of next year.”—Steven Moffat on the identity of River Song (via riversongfan)
Are we talking in general or specifically? Cos if it’s in general it’s probably a good book. Nothing quite so satisfying as sitting down with a good book and just reading imo really. If we’re being specific however i dont think i could even begin to answer. Kensuke’s Kingdom (one of my oldest and most favourite books)? Or a nice cold pint of cider on a hot day (does that count?)? Or my computer (not because i spend all my time on it but because it’s the first computer i ever owned and it’s really awesome. I do however spend all my time on it. :P )? I could probably go on but i cba right now.
So it’s been a long while since my last post. This is not unusual. The reason for this post is mainly to tell you about this website i found called The Rules of a Gentleman (www.therulesofagentleman.com) where the author posts “rules” about how to be a gentleman. Some are silly but entertaining and others are actually quite true really. The site caught my eye on stumbleupon as the rule it displayed said “Opening the door for a lady is not optional, and will never go out of style. - Andy Rutledge Please note: This means any door.” which is something i believe to be very true although it could easily be extended to be for anyone regardless of age, gender, ability or any other distinction you might be able to make imo. A rather well known saying goes something like this i believe “Politeness never hurt anyone.” and i can’t think of a situation where this isn’t true. (Note this is not a rant, just my views which you are all free to ignore like the horrible, horrible people you are. :P )
Enough about that. Now to move onto something which i think is far more exciting: My copy of The Rogue by Trudi Canavan arrived today!!! :D :D :D This is the second book in the second trilogy set in a country called Kyralia (amongst other places). The first trilogy is called The Black Magician trilogy and is absolutely awesome and the second is called The Traitor Spy trilogy and looks set to be as good. I ordered The Rogue a few days ago now before the weekend and only just went to check the mailroom at uni to see if it was there. My friend Beth has already bought and finished it so i cant wait to read it myself so we can have a good natter about everything that happens. The first trilogy is about a young woman called Sonea who is a slum dweller (basically a poor person living in poor conditions somewhat like the shanty towns in places like Mumbai) who discovers she has a natural gift for magic that is normally restricted to the upper classes. The first book is about her discovering her power and being tracked down by mages from the magicians guild in the city who need to decide what to do about the fact that someone whom they normally discriminate against now has unlocked powers that must be controlled and whether or not to allow her into the guild to learn magic. It’s a very good book as are the 2 sequels in the series. The second trilogy is set about 20 years in the future and follows Sonea and her son in new “adventures”. Cant wait to get stuck into it.
I cant really remember exactly what the other stuff was going to be in this post now so i’ll just say whatever else i can think of like the fact that i’ve also bought all 3 seasons of Black Books and Coraline on dvd and hopefully they’ll be arriving soon too. Both of them are very awesome and will give me something to do during my free time now that i’ve finished my three non-extremely long ps3 games (inFamous, Bioshock and Assassins Creed 2) leaving only the 2 long ones (Oblivion and Dragon Age: Origins). I might also have to buy Portal 2 soon as 1 was awesome and 2 looks even better.
Until next time i get something worth blogging about: hope you all have a good few weeks. Right i’m off to go read now.
“People are intimidated. They think that there’s 47 years worth of stuff they need to know before they can enjoy anything. And what you want to say is, No. Look, there is a blue box. It is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. It can go anywhere in time and space and sometimes even where it’s meant to go. And when it turns up there’s a bloke in it called the Doctor, and there will be stuff wrong and he will do his best to sort it out and he will probably succeed, because he’s awesome. Now sit down, shut up, and watch “Blink.”
