So normally, the day that I have it in for is Thursday. Thursday has never been a favorite day of mine and it’s less so these days since Kile has class in the evenings. Though if I’m going to be perfectly honest, that hasn’t been so bad. So its on me to put the kids to bed… big deal. I even get some time with the TV to pick what I want to watch. A little glass of wine and I’m good to go. I miss having Kile there but he comes home eventually and its all well.
The last two Tuesdays have been kinda rough though and I’m starting to give Tuesday some serious side-eye. Tuesday is generally a pretty good day. Because, as I learned when I joined up with Tumblr last year, Tuesday isn’t just Tuesday. It’s TENNANT TUESDAY. Which means that all over Tumblr, there are pictures of David Tennant. Like the above picture. That’s a good day, people!
I think the problem with Tuesdays is that a lot of people are having Tuesday related issues. And they bring those issues into my sphere of being and then I’m like… stop raining on my Tennant Tuesday. I just think everyone needs to take a minute and eat some fruit or something. We got some great shots of Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman filming for the 50th in Trafalgar Square (they hung him from the bottom of the TARDIS and he lived to tell the tale… I think that’s pretty incredible, ngl). There was a little “script leak” that… who even knows if that’s the actual script or not? I don’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised if something like what was in the script happens but I have a hard time believing that that was it too. So whatever. Who cares. I don’t want to speculate cuz, come on. We have till NOVEMBER.
Mostly I’m feeling peevish because there’s some backlash about one of David Tennant’s next projects, “The Politician’s Husband” which will show up in the UK at the end of the month (and I’ll subsequently download cuz that’s how I roll). He’s not playing a nice guy and GASP OMG HOW DARE HE. He’s played a not nice guy before and we all survived that. Sit down and chill out, people. No one’s gonna make you watch it. Believe it or not: NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. *edited to add: yes I have seen Secret Smile! Two times even! Wasn’t he WRETCHED in that? Incredible.
What may actually BE the end of the world is how Broadchurch ended last night. That’s another British show, a miniseries in 8 episodes and last night was episode 6. It’ll eventually show up on BBC America, I’m sure, but I don’t have patience for that kind of thing. So I download it. Again: that’s how I roll. ANYHOW, it’s a murder mystery and the cast is fantastic and it’s pretty to look at and fascinating to no end. And if David Tennant’s character dies I will have a serious problem because I’m so worried, you guys.
Meanwhile, I’m surviving spring break. Now, whether or not the KIDS survive spring break remains to be seen. We’ll see if they can refrain from bickering and whining and otherwise driving me absolutely crazy. It’s only TUESDAY. There are so, so many more days to get through. I fear the worst.
