November 2nd

Does anyone know what that means? No, probably not. Not all of it, I mean.

1. It means the second day of NaNoWriMo. I have exactly 3,400 words so far, which I had to get fast since I'd be gone all day today.

2. Our Whoathon (Doctor Who Marathon)

3. Trench-coat day (created by Jake)

 4. My birthday. :)

Yep--from my parents, I got a brand new epic trench-coat! Now Jake, Manny, and I all have trench-coats. Ry borrowed one from my grandma, and so we all wore them to the Whoathon, which was EPIC.

From Ry, I got a waterbottle and a piece of green felt with 'Doctor' in blue cut-out letters. The thing is, twice I was asked to draw something for me own present. ;) Ry had me draw a TARDIS, which she stuck on there too.

Manny used my bulletin board and taped (I think) a yellow felt boot (That I drew the outline for... XD) and blue lettering down the side which spells... VERN. (Haha, gotta love it.) Also, whereas the boot is at the top and the lettering on the sides, in the right top corner there is a horseshoe--not a real one, but the kind you'd use in the game Horseshoe. And, the best part, Manny took my drawing of the Arabian--the last one I did with my teacher, can be viewed here (it is the full-view horse with head outstretched), is situated in the left bottom corner, held in place by the frame of the bulletin board and two tacks... Manny knows I'm prickly about cutting or sticking things through the paper of my drawings, so she did it specially where the point is right beside the paper, but the round top of the tack is what's keeping the drawing on. :)

First, we watched Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead, then The Christmas Invasion, then Partners in Crime, and then The Pandorica Opens and the Big Bang, and finally the Eleventh hour, which we have yet to finish because we had to stop in the middle of it. :P

Tennant was in Silence in the Library/Forest of the dead, The Christmas Invasion, and Partners in Crime. Smith was inThe Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang and the Eleventh hour. We did not have any with Eccleston, partially because we didn't want to REALLY see any of his--his episodes didn't have quite as good of plot.

And we got to see five different companions!! ROSE, my first favorite, was in The Christmas Invasion, and Donna Noble (she's my second, tied with Rory) was in Partners in Crime and Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead. Rory (tied with Donna) and Amy (they're husband and wife, now) were in The Pandorica Opens/AThe Big Bang and The Eleventh Hour.

We had every singel (new) Doctor Who companion, save Martha, who is my least favorite. :P It goes Rose, Donna/Rory, Amy, and then Martha.

They were the ones we thought would be best to watch a second time, and most of them hilarious. Silence in the Library is where the Doctor first meets River, and the last time River meets the Doctor. Timestreams, rather complicated. ;)

The Christmas Invasion is the first episode of Season 2, the first one after Eccleston regenerated into Tennant. Hilarious and amazing.

Partners in Crime is where Donna comes back, after meeting the Doctor once before in The Runaway Bride. (Haha, methinks, other than River, she's the onlly companion who has slapped the Doctor) She's investigating on something because she thinks she might find the Doctor where there's trouble.

The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang is where... well, to quote it, "This is where it gets complicated." This is with Smith, and Rory comes back as plastic afer falling into a crack in time and being erased completely--never having been born. Whew. Poor Rory, he's died twice, and then he didn't exist, and then he's plastic and has to wait 2,000 years!

Finally, the Eleventh Hour with Smith as the Doctor--the first episode after Tennant regenerated into Smith. In this one, he first meets Amy and Rory and accidentally is twelve years late for something. ;)

All in all, the best one to re-watch was Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead. 'Tis funny, brilliant, and still emotional at the same time (which is good, because I'd hate the Doctor if he had no emotion :P)

Ah, and enough talk about Doctor Who! What about Beatrice?

Beatrice has literally taken to chasing cars. *shakes head* She'll kill herself that way. She waits for them and then tears after them, sometimes nearly running in front. O_O Twice, she sat in the middle of the road, making them go AROUND her, and then chased them. One of them turned out to be the mailman. XD

And then, just the other day, she lay in the middle of the road, and a car came up fast, and didn't see her. IT RAN RIGHT OVER HER, and she survived, not even flinching, because she happened to be short enough to go under the car. Gah. If the car had swerved...? Oh, and of course, she chased it. :P

She also likes to chase cows... poor cows.

But a good thing--! She doesn't bark at new people now (well, occasionally she does...) and sniffs their hands. She's still not to sure about them touching her, though. She's turning into a little sweetie... except when she's eating. She'll growl and yap if you try to pull her away from food. But you can pet her easily while she's eating, as well as take away the bowl, but she doesn't like to be picked up.

And drawings? I finished the Rocky Mountain Horse, but I'm not sure what to do next.

Gotta go...

I have a trenchcoat as well! If we meet one day, let's plan on wearing them.
