I am hating the weather right now. Really, five minutes outside and… - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....

I am hating the weather right now. Really, five minutes outside and you think you're going to faint from the sauna-like heat. However, there was this awesome electrical storm very early this morning. Not much thunder, but the lightning was pretty amazing.

Little to update about, really (hence me talking about the weather). I got a letter from the HPRC honours coordinator today saying that I do indeed satisfy the requirements for honours, and now I'm waiting on the director of studies in the Arts Faculty to approve my application. I'm elbow deep in ante-Nicene father texts in preparation at the moment. It's very slow going, and because I haven't bothered to look on Amazon or at St Paul's bookshop in the city, I'm reading the texts online. It's getting a bit tiresome.

However! My spirits are buoyed because Stephen Colbert show's finally going to start screening here in a few days (on cable, but then only SBS out of the commercial networks would consider picking it up). Maybe it was watching his exchanges with Bill O'Reilly on YouTube that make me want to check the Colbert Report out. Or perhaps it's that he's typical of male celebrities I like (tallish, skinny geeks who may wear glasses and are funny and/or witty. See also: David Tennant in Doctor Who, David Hyde Pierce in Frasier). I'm watching it, anyway.

*clicks update button and goes to look at St Paul's bookshop website*

Addendum:

Alright, so this may be more interesting to the DW fans (and maybe some of the Life on Mars fans) on my list than the whole of that last update. Potential casting rumour regarding a character (from the Old Skool series who we all know and love) in season three. And a possible spoiler about Sir Derek Jacobi's character too which makes me squee a little (if it's true....I just know who he's going to be! *dances*).

Current Mood: blah blah
Current Music: Lily Allen- Smile

They're not really bringing back you-know-who are they? Everything was going so well.

Derek Jacobi's character sounded suspiciously Professor Chronotis-esque, to me. It will be so cool :)

Oh, why not? We need another recurring enemy besides the Daleks, you know. Besides, that is an excellent actor they're reporting for the role there. He was one of the few good things about that Nero telemovie on SBS last year.

My first thought was that he had to be playing Chronotis. I'll have to go and re-watch the Shada webcast to refresh my memory of the character. :)

Oh I agree that he's a great actor. I just think that particular character always results in over the top storylines. And you know it was the one part that fatally undermined the TV movie.

Please don't tempt me with Shada! I've got so much translation to do...
