When Peter Capaldi talked about The Pilot on The Graham Norton Show the other night, he mentioned that his relationship with Bill Potts is very much an "Educating Rita" one.

Now, I hadn't even thought about the cross-cultural problems with that, until I saw this post on tumblr:
mini rant ahoy! )

Sorry to bring in an element of personal boasting, but I have finished an Open University online course about the various types of dementia.

This is a very personal achievement (one where I have regained an important part of my life), and I'm feeling rather chuffed with myself.

Prompt: The benefit of being the only adult in this college course is commiserating about the woes of single-daddom over a beer with the hot professor
Summary: In an AU, Donna begins a new college course and meets Dr John Smith. Strangely enough their goals turn out to be the same.
Disclaimer: Erm, what do I actually own here? Oh yes - I've been to college as an adult.
A/N: I've been alternating between short bursts of energy followed by lots and lots of needing to get over it, but I'm delighted that my muse came back long enough to write this.

I suppose that I ought to explain why my absence has continued recently. It seems that I've sunk into a bit of a depressive phase where I'm not writing much at all. Sorry.
a personal update, just to let you know...erm...stuff )

Is it okay to be proud of other people's children?

Only, one of my ex-pupils has just come out on Facebook; and I am so bloody proud of him!!

Fancy helping out with a university video project?

If so, all you have to do is go and have a look at this webpage, view the very brief video and leave a comment in their Ask box
[or via me, if that seems daunting]

All feedback will be gratefully accepted.

My middle son sat with me this afternoon as I looked at tumblr.

Having seen them on a blog, he explained what the word 'fetch' meant [basically I was told to NEVER watch Mean Girls] and the reference of two dancing boys in a gif, because I would never have known.

This was followed by him insisting on showing me the Wrecking Ball spoof on YouTube [oh my gawd! It deserves the 55 million hits]; but then he saw this photo on my tumblr dash

I have just taken a deep breath and signed up to do two very short online Open University recommended courses with FutureLearn.

One is basic Java programming and the other looks at the shallowness of human psychology.

I am SO excited!!!!

I saw this as part of a post on tumblr today:

Distress
·         Men in particular have a tendency to stroke or rub the nape of the neck when they are upset. It acts as a self-soothing gesture to deal with “A pain in the neck”

I am not completely convinced because... )

Apparently I make snarky comments, I'm told. Me?! Surely not. *grins mischievously* Since I welcome the chance to prove/disprove this, I thought I’d nab this meme from [livejournal.com profile] karlamartinova; which I actually did a while back but am only just posting it. With updates, obviously.

not a rant this time, just answers )
