Silly Doctor. It's adorable, really, how hard he tries. And he is pretty brilliant, you'll give him that. But he always seems to overlook the obvious--including the fact that he's not the only Gallifreyan onboard, thank you very much. You are always calm and collected, and more often than not wonderfully witty, in the face of adversity. The Doctor knows he can count on you, even when you infuriate him!

Go Figure

I have no life. Yes we knew that, but I'm feeling it particularly today. All sixes and sevens. FWIW, I am writing, and it's actually the next part of I Am Going To the West. Yes, I'm surprised too. Urge struck me, so I'm going with it. I was thinking of sticking in a DVD, but not sure what exactly I want to watch. Leaning towards M7. But maybe a movie. Too bad it's too hot to go outside, I think fresh air would be good. But that shall have to wait till the sun goes down. One of these days, my trees will have grown enough to offer shade so I can sit under them even when it is 100+.

It there was ever any doubt my father is an idiot....

This was the scene from my house a bit ago:

Before the fire department arrived, the fire was moving down the hill towards our house (we're next to the roofs in the photo), and the wind was picking up, so I was outside, dragging hoses out, getting them hooked up, just in case. It's 100+ outside, and I'm running around, and my father? He's hanging out the window whining at me because he wants to take a picture and can't get mum's camera to work?!?!?! The hell! He's an idiot.

The fire is now under control, but it eventually engulfed the house (it seemed to start under the car port/deck area at the edge of the property, and they're currently spraying foam on it. I thank God today was not really windy (80mph gusts last week) (there's a reason they call this the Hurricane Valley) and that it didn't catch more homes on fire, and that we have a tile roof and stucco siding. I hate fire. My most vivid memory as a child was the first Oakland/Berkeley Hills fire when I was 7. I remember several kids in my school, one in my class, lost everything. Now I need to calm down a bit. I'm still feeling a little freaked.

Later: oh, yeah, how could I forget. The idiots who all came to watch the fire, talking up limited road space so the fire trucks couldn't get up the cul-de-sacs below the fire to fight the fire from below. I swear, the stupidity of some people!
