Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop


...so, Sarah and I head out to Spain on Saturday for a week in the sun. Or more likely, a week in our apartment, because I really don't get on with the sun.

Have sort of decided to take my iPhone, but use it just as an iPod, not for websurfing or email or anything like that (when we were in America I made that mistake and got an astronomical bill when we got back home...not making that mistake again).

Am mulling about taking my laptop with me. Again, won't be using it for any websurfing (unless there is some nice cheap/free wi-fi where we're staying...which is always a possibility...but mainly so I can - maybe, possibly - do some writing. Either some fanfic, or one of the many novel/short story ideas I've had buzzing round my head for years. It'd be nice to just get one of them out of my system.

Or I could just take a pen and paper and write it the old fashioned way.

Or I could always take Wicked (which I've been reading since last September, on and off) and finally finish that.

Of course...

...another possibility whilst in Spain is vidding. Load laptop with a DVD rip of The girl in the fireplace1, Pet Shop Boys' Jealousy2 is already on there, sorted... Could also do the vid of The end of the world1 to Pet Shop Boys' The end of the world whilst I'm about it...

So yes, that could be fun. Although there's at least one castle near where we're staying.

1 - The Doctor Who episodes, of course.
2 - The bit with a thing on a thing going through a thing is set to coincide with a Very Specific Bit of the song.

Who would win? You decide...

Saw this in a friend's LJ, and decided it was too funny not to share:

Also saw this in a comm, and again, it made me laugh so I figured I'd share it. It also makes me wonder if there's any way Steven Moffat could be persuaded that it would be really really nice for Drew Barrymore to be in an episode of Doctor Who..?

Oh dear...

For the second night running, Sarah is stuck on a broken-down coach a vague somewhere on the M1. As far as I know, it's a different coach to last night's one, but even so...she's late getting home from work as it is (this week she's been excessively busy at work), she doesn't cope well with the cold weather in which she'll no doubt have to wait for the replacement coach...this week in Spain can't come soon enough...I suspect she'll be a very tired and very shivery bunny when I pick her up from the bus stop...
