I went to see Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets today. Cut for negativity more than spoilers. )

For the Forever Knight fans: A friend of mine recently applied for Canadian citizenship, and a few weeks later received an email informing him that the processing of his application has now begun and also providing him with a link to the website where he can download the citizenship test study guide in either print or audio format. Furthermore, the email continued, the audio version is narrated by a group of famous Canadians. My friend didn't recognize any of the names, but I recognized a couple, including one that I thought might be of mild interest to handful of you: Geraint Wyn Davies. If any of you would like to listen to Nick Knight discuss the regions of Canada, you can do so here.

I was reading some advice today on how to improve ease of writing. The first step the site recommended is to write first thing in the morning, before doing anything else, or at least before reading anything else. It apparently doesn't matter what you write as long as you write something; recounting the previous night's dreams or discussing in detail how much you hate the activity are both perfectly valid options. I think I might try it for a bit and see what happens, if I can just bring myself to wake up a little earlier.

I have another week of vacation coming up soon. I should start putting together a list of the things I'd like to accomplish. Bake, definitely; maybe visit the bank; maybe go to the beach. That's a start.

As we all must know by now, the next Doctor on Doctor Who will be a woman. (Yaaas.) This is coinciding with Moffat finally leaving. I always said I'd give Who another go once he's gone, and I am going to be true to my word and see if the new showrunner's any good!

In order to ease myself back into it, I thought I'd get to know the new Doctor's actress a little. She's done lots of stuff but Broadchurch was on my netflix so it was easiest to watch and I'd heard good things about it, so I decided to watch. And OMG am I glad I did. I LOVED IT!!! I mean, new Doctor aside, I really loved the show. (I mostly forgot that she was the reason I started watching the show after about 2 episodes.) I would say it's basically a Brit version of The Killing, which I adored. One case/story over a long period (multiple seasons), lady cop that I LOVE*, unlikely partnership that scratches my itches in all the right ways.. YES GOOD THANKS.

I'm really sad they only did 3 series of Broadchurch. :((((( And Hardy/Miller is my ship flavor of the moment now.

*so my love for Ellie Miller is just like, okay, she's so optimistic and wants to save the world and she endures unimaginable pain, such a specific kind that very few people have to go through (trying not to spoil here), but she comes out the other side and she's STILL optimistic and STILL upbeat and STILL so empathetic and that's her best feature THAT'S what helps her solve crimes THAT'S what makes her so crucial to Hardy, so irreplacable, and no she's not perfect by any means, but her humanity is what gives her the edge and helps her see the things he misses - that and her CRAZY CRIMESOLVING WALLS (my favorite) - that helps her connect to victims she fights for, and she doesn't let Hardy's gruffness get to her, she's just like oh shut up, she's amazingly strong to be there for the best friend that hates her, and I just???? LOVE??? HER?????!!!!! Here's a convenient list of Miller's 10 best moments ahahha my laughter devolves into sobbing because I love her so much.

HERE HAVE A RANDOM PICSPAM I MADE b/c I love Hardy and Miller so muh-huh-huch

I find it hilarious that New York Fries--a fast food restaurant that literally sells nothing but fries (and hot dogs)--has a loyalty program. (Okay, they also sell a few poutine variants, but that's just French fries with toppings.) A loyalty program. Buy 10, get one free.

On the other hand, apparently members can get free fries tomorrow in honour of National Fry Day, so now I'm kind of thinking about joining.
