Two unrelated Doctor Who thoughts:

(because I'm more than 1/3 done with my Shakespeare paper, and it's only 1 in the morning!  So what if that means I have 2.5 pages to go?)

1a. When I'm pulling these long, late nights on the computer doing boring homework, during my frequent break periods I cannot stay away from ihasatardis.  BECAUSE IT IS LIKE CRACK.  Unfortunately...

2. Topic switch!  Did I mention that the rest of my library loans came in last week? Unfortunately, someone got their wires crossed and sent me an anthology of short stories instead of The Stone Rose in audiobook, which was a little disappointing.  But at least my Doctor Who novels themselves came through, and I devoted Friday night to reading.  The Stone Rose is, in fact, every bit as glorious as its hype made it out to be (Price of Paradise, not so much, although I don't know if that was more because because of all the extended scenes devoted to characters with neither the Doctor nor Rose in sight, or because SR had completely spoiled me). 

But the very best part of all is that while I had managed to dig up a fair amount of info on the story, including some shippy excerpts, no one told me about this!

I am thinking that Stone Rose is to Doctor Who novels what Ruins was to the X-Files ones - the highlight of them all, making everything else nice enough but somewhat disappointing by comparison.  Perhaps I should not have read it first.  On the bright side, I have a birthday coming up.  I wonder if there's a chance I could find this at Half Price...
