honestly i’d be surprised if three didn’t have ‘go away humans’ angrily written in sharpie on the door to his lab

Standing there with his upturned collar and downturned straw hat, from which wisps of smoke still issued, he looked like a garden gnome that somebody had thrown accidentally on to the barbecue.

I think it’s now time to write a review of the new Doctor Who episode that aired last night now that I’ve gotten at least two hours of sleep, roughly. So, um, if this review sounds a little off, it’s probably because I’m succumbing to lack of sleep and becoming a bit delusional. Okay, let’s go.

-The Caretaker was a good episode. It wasn’t groundbreaking or something simply amazing plotwise, but it was able to help clear up some of the fuss with Clara/The Doctor/Danny and establish the different relationships more (i.e. Clara and Danny now being together as a serious unit, The Doctor not really liking Danny but more tolerating him for Clara, The Doctor watching out Clara like a father would, etc.) It was pretty much a drama fest, but it was an enjoyable one.
-I’m sorry to say this, but I didn’t really connect with the villain. I thought it was lackluster, and just something kind of thrown in there to help get the plot moving.
-NO CHATTERTON (I mean) CHESTERTON? NO CAMEO? YOU HAD THE PERFECT OPPURTUNITY AND YOU JUST WASTED IT! EVEN A REALLY BRIEF CAMEO, JUST A SMALL ONE, YOU COULDN’T DO THAT? So disappointed in them.
-…However, I was laughing my ass off that the guy who the Doctor thought Clara was dating looked like Matt Smith. I wonder if that was intentional. It probably was.
-I liked the Doctor and Courtney being bros. They bonded over both being tagged as a ‘negative influence.’
-When Eleven shouted, you might have just waved him off like ‘Okay, you silly goose, I’m going.’ When Twelve shouts, you take it seriously and haul butt.
-THAT BACKFLIP. Danny Pink’s got the moves.
-That last scene with Clara and Danny in her(?) flat, we must talk about that. I felt it might have been some terrible foreshadowing for something that is going to come and I’ll admit I’m a little scared. Twelve is a pretty dark character, but will he do something so corrupt that it will shake Clara so badly that she stops traveling with him?
-WHO ARE YOU MISSY AND MISSY’S ATTRACTIVE ASSISTANT AND WHAT ARE YOU PLOTTING?
-That’s all I have to say on the episode. It was somewhere between fair and good, definitely not as good as Listen or Time Heist, but it helped make some relationships more defined, which is nice. Next week’s episode looks more promising.

Well what did ya expect in an opera, a happy ending?

Sighing, Ace took the Doctor’s scarf in her hands. ‘I am never, ever, going to leave you. You needn’t worry, you sad old man. Come here.’
They hugged. Ace felt the Doctor relax, but only slightly. This was way disturbing, the whole bit. Usually he was up on the whole game, way beyond anything dull and stupid like jealousy.
She was used to him being in control. The idea that he wasn’t was scary.

DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
DO NOT DO THIS.
NO DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS, CRYON HAS A LOT OF FUCKING LEAD IN IT (four times more than lipstick) PLEASE JUST BUY ACTUAL LIPSTICK.

There’s no lead in crayola crayons. Kids eat them.

The ingredients in Crayola Crayons are: paraffin, wax, and pigment. They’re made with the understanding that some kids will eat the damn things, so the company that makes Crayons has been very very careful to use non-toxic materials, even going so far as to use a special edible glue on the paper labels. (cornstarch and water, fyi)
You can eat Crayons, if you really wanted to, but frankly the flavor’s a little bland. They taste like wax. So, yeah. adding oils with a lower solidification temperature like Olive Oil or Grapeseed or Avocado, and mixing in some Shea or Coconut Butter would make a creamy crayon. Which you could use on your skin, if you wanted.
Go wild, use that shit on more than just lips. Use it like theatrical makeup, paint your tits blue if you want. Or use it like paint on the walls, or paper, or canvas. It won’t dry the same way acrylic or watercolor paint will, and will remain ‘workable’ and pliable until the oil looses enough water to solidify, much like, oh, off the top of my head… oil paint.
Modern oil paints are very similar to the recipe above, though usually done with Linseed oil or other inert non-organic oils. Organic oils, as they dry, can discolor, making your carefully chosen color look off. Why are some really old painting slightly yellow? Partly the varnish has yellowed, partly airborne pollutants have stained the surface, and partly the oil in the original paint has shifted color.
BTW, don’t eat Linseed oil, you’ll get the runs something fierce and regret it a lot. And then you get to go to the doctor and explain why your runny poo is brightly colored. But the amount you’d ingest from lipstick made with crayons? Negligible.
Now I really want to make a set of rainbow lipstick to match my rainbow collection of nail polish (which is way more toxic than crayon lipstick, too.)

Have you ever done any sketches of Romana II? I would think she would look nice in your style.

Actually, I have for both Romana I and II :) I just haven’t gotten around to posting them in any of my art blogs yet.

I think Romana II especially turned out great in my style. Lalla Ward lends herself well to caricature.

And before you ask: Yes, I have plans on making finished and fun artsy things with my Romana designs. For now, enjoy these sneak-peaks:

An adventure in Rockport: Donut Peaches at the Cape Ann Farmer’s market. Donut peaches are a boon to my South East Asian eyes, especially when they are not sat inside the Villa Market for imported goods attached with a hefty price tag. A million signals went off in my brain: Fresh?? Donut Peaches?? It’ll take getting used to the luxury of the fruit in America. [An adventure in Rockport] [My instagram]
