I've been playing SOOOOOOOO much Fallout 3 lately. And I have all the DLC for it, so it's been ultra fun (but so easy). A few friends of mine and myself have started up a D&D campaign, something I have NEVER done before, and it's a lot harder than you'd think! You have to actually SPEAK as your character and make it as authentic as possible, and I'm having a hard time capturing the whole "sarcastic dwarf rogue" persona I made for my character, a black dwarf with dreadlocks and an Italian accent. I'm not lame enough to actually get into character like my friends, which disturbs me greatly. So I often bring my Xbox with me when I go over to my best friend's house so I at least have something to look forward to when it's all done. I sit in his room with my Xbox plugged into his TV/computer monitor and just headshot everyone with the Gauss Rifle. It's pretty fun, and my friends who have never played Fallout are particularly appreciative of the Bloody Mess perk.
We also watched The Big Fat Quiz Show, or whatever it's called, with two of our favorite people ever as contestants--Richard Ayoade and Noel Fielding. Oh, Maker. Me and British comedies. Seriously, it's unusual how I watch more BBC than anything else, being both an American and a Texan. My mom doesn't get it, and my brothers think I'm the biggest weirdo to ever walk the Earth, and I'm having a hard time disagreeing.
Watching it, though, they made references to Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Glee--all shows I adore, but not equally. I love Doctor Who so much it hurts. It's been a part of my life since I was little. My dad had a friend named Owen who watched the classic Whos religiously. I haven't seen much of the classic Who, but that doesn't make me feel like less of a fan. The Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors are my generation, so I'm happy enough. I thought the Tenth Doctor would be my favorite forever, but the Eleventh Doctor is so endearing. I can't help but love him the most, and love Matt Smith for being such a dedicated and beautiful actor. He's so sweet with the fans and little kids, in the show and out, that it makes my heart melt. He's a sweetie.
I've never been in this good of a mood! I think I'm just happy to get out of the house now and then.
