I've got to be honest with you, son. We're in the center of the earth and there are lizard men.

For my rewatching of old Who episodes, I am now in season five, which is Matt Smith's first season. I always forget how much I love him until I watch and hear him in motion. As much as I want to say that I've been a Who fan since I was a child, Smith will always be My Doctor. Because of the rabid fandom, I had postponed watching it until right when he started, so he is the first that I witnessed "in real time". I am also re-experiencing all the multitude of reasons why Rory is my favorite companion of all time. Of. All. Time. He's so fabulously awkward and insecure in the beginning. Hilarious with his delivery. A nurse. Completely unimpressed during his first visit to the TARDIS.

Oh, chees, the episode after this one is Vincent and the Doctor, which always makes me cry, and The Lodger, which is one of my favorites.

Watched last night's episode, "Listen". I am finally catching on and "getting" Capaldi as The Doctor, and liking him much more. The first couple of episodes, he just felt like an old, slow Smith to me, but he seems to be coming into his own. I've read reviews that say that Moffat is displaying a crap ton of sexism and misogyny with his current writing with how mean The Doctor can be to Clara, but I had been viewing it more of a distinction of just how alien The Doctor is, as he seems confused by simple human shape. Part of it may be blinders to get as much enjoyment as possible out of my show. Mah stories. But I really did the chalkboards.

I have been having idiotic sleeping issues. I seem to only be able to fall asleep and stay asleep if I have a touch of alcohol with Benedryl. I've had severe allergies since I was a child, you see, so have taken allergy pills before bed almost every single night for approximately 34 years of my life, starting at age five, so they generally don't have that much of an issue with drugs that normally knock people the eff out. The combination, however, helps me fall asleep and stay asleep, but causes me to feel exhausted and almost hung over the next day. For the nights that I don't do this, however, it takes me hours and hours to fall asleep and I usually sleep for about an hour and wake up, unable to fall back asleep for many more hours. I'm going to try some melatonin tonight and hope for the best.
