things I think about while eating breakfast  
--Okay, I take back my previous comments about the Coraline commercials. The new one, in which the figurines are being put together (reminding me rather of skeletons), is actually really, delightfully creepy.

--Having a Ten-and-Martha magnet on my fridge door makes me very happy when I have to get things out of the fridge.

--It amuses me that Ten apparently doesn't see any need to change clothes in, say, Elizabethan London or Pompeii, but wears a tux to formal events.

--Hamlet's answer to "To be or not to be" seems, in the end, to be "Actually, be as many people as possible."

--I really dislike the term "bromance." I'm not entirely sure why.

(Some of these thoughts are connected. Others are not. I leave it to you to judge.)

As to your first point, I give you two videos.

...Wow. Those are really cool. The first one made me rather sad, though!

It made me sad, too. =( But it was gorgeous!

Very true!

That Coraline commercial made me want to see it so badly just for the animation alone.

Funny point about Ten in a tux. Talk about eye candy.

Bromance means what?

Yes--the commercials are getting more and more interesting! And a friend tells me that the displays in New York are really cool as well.

As for Ten, I do wonder how much the tux in VotD was because of good feedback from "Lazarus." Since he doesn't seem to *like* wearing them all that much, it's odd that he bothers. (She says, as though he's a real individual with a coherent decision-making process.)

"Bromance" is a portmanteau of (I'm assuming) "bro" and "romance." For some reason people are using it a lot to describe close male friendships. I think it's also the name of a reality show on MTV?

Ten and Martha live on my fridge tooooo

But is Ten in a tux on your magnet? Because then I will be quite jealous.

Yay! More Ten and Martha on fridges!

Sadly, no tux--just the blue suit. But Martha is in her doctor's coat, which is nice (even though I love the pineapple hair with a strange fondness).

Mmmm, Ten in tux. But you're right -- he never does change clothing and I'm surprised nobody has called him on it yet.

Yes--trust me, I'm not complaining about the tux! But it is funny, given that he has that whole huge wardrobe in the TARDIS. Perhaps people in the past are just too polite to point and stare. :)

You wouldn't think so, given how much attention people in the sixteenth century in particular paid to fashion! Maybe they're just incredibly confused and have no idea what to make of him -- then again, he does say all sorts of mad things, so maybe they assume he's insane and leave it at that.

I do actually have someone comment on his wardrobe in a fic I haven't posted yet, which amuses me a little.
tempestsarekind: all the world's a stagetempestsarekind on January 30th, 2009 04:38 pm (UTC)
Good point. Perhaps they do all think he's insane. And you don't want to antagonize sixteenth-century crazy people. They might try to stab you with sprigs of rosemary or something.

And that amuses me too!
La Reine Noire: Studious Veronicalareinenoire on January 30th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
No, you definitely don't want to antagonise the crazy people. That being said, the person in the fic who comments on the Doctor's wardrobe is a very sensible lady who merely believes that what he's wearing is utterly unsuitable for Court. Which is true.

Indeed. Well, it makes sense that it would be someone sensible to comment; someone *not* sensible might just accept whatever the Doctor happened to be wearing!
