New icon! Whee! I love sock puppets. :D

What caused me to die from cute: this story about two ducklings washed out to sea in the floods around Britain. What really killed me was the pic of them in a teacup. (And since I am now one of the undead who has risen again to blog, every entry from this point in time will contain a mention of braaaains.)

What do you do when there's too much cute? You make lolduckling pics, of course. :P

Whee! I have upgraded to a plus account because I couldn't resist the Dalek mood theme. I loff it.

Now, to see about icons...

(Dalek mood theme comes from:
This was going to be a gratuitous icon-showing-off post (made by the wonderfully talented [profile] boz4pm, who also happens to love Wallace and Gromit) except that it isn't. Well, not quite.

Look! It's Yu-Gi-Oh episodes compressed into ten minutes!

The last anime I saw was Ghost in the Shell, and that was at least two years ago, but I still love them. I've never seen Yu-Gi-Oh, and I still love 'em. They're kinda like the Movies in Fifteen Minutes of anime - you don't need to know anything about the original show to find the stuff funny.

Once again I'm surrounded by so many shinies I don't know what to do with them all. I found lots of lovely icons, and need advice on which ones to actually use. They're all very pretty, I might go to Plus just for the extra icon space.

But yes, I need advice, and that's your sign to comment. :)

Having just watched Tooth and Claw (the Doctor Who episode from last week)...hmm. It wasn't my favourite episode, but I like it for the connections it makes to other eps.

(ZOMG David Tennant with a scottish accent squee!)

Ahem. IN other news, another icon! This one is made by [ profile] cedara in response to [ profile] drakyndra's The Doctor Is Like Chocolate Theory. Mmm, doctor, chocolate.

Anyhow, I think I'll be going sleepybyes soon. A life without english orals awaits (read, a life with maths exercises and geography fieldwork and french verb tenses).

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow... the Doctor's back again!
I'm so glad the IB oral commentaries are over - over for those who did them today at least, the people on wednesday still have theirs to go. I'm very, very glad that I wasn't on wednesday.

For the non-IBs, Oral commentaries go like thus:

1. Pick three texts (in our case, Macbeth, Jane Eyre and Sylvia Plath poems)

2. Study the three texts over the course of a term.

3. Pick passages/poems from the texts.

4. Students study these passages for main concerns, imagery patterns, how it relates to the text as a whole, etc, etc. We ended up with seven passages, but here's the catch - you don't know which passage you'll actually be talking about until you open the envelope you pick on the day. You then get twenty minutes to annotate/plan/prepare, and then you speak an oral that should go for twelve minutes. And then the teacher asks you questions for a further three minutes.


Anyway, I don't think mine went too badly. I got Tulips by Sylvia Plath, which is hard in that there's so much to analyse. I eventually went for tone and imagery patterns, although I was a bit thrown by the question at the end about rhythm in the poem, seeing as I hadn't looked at that at all... *sheepish*

But it's over now, and in the meantime I've got a lovely shiny Doctor icon. *points* And I hope that a new layout will follow soon.

Onwards to Death of a Salesman, and then to exams!
New phone! NEW PHONE! Which is pink but still! *bounces*


Blackpool icons! BLACKPOOL ICONS! Which are not pink but still! *bounces more*

Go steal them from [ profile] misscam, if you so desire.
