...gacked from [livejournal.com profile] lonemagpie. And assuming that "this year" refers to 2008...

Your main fandom of the year?
Doctor Who is always my main fandom, other things just come and go.

Your favourite film watched this year?
Not sure. I don't think I've watched many. Mamma Mia, I think.

Your favourite book read this year?
Haven't read many. Probably Death is Forever (one of John Gardner's James Bond novels).

Your favourite album or song to listen to this year?
I've been listening a lot to Bilingual by the Pet Shop Boys (vastly underrated, IMO), as well as Gold Afternoon Fix, Priest=Aura, and Sometime Anywhere all by the Church.

Your favourite TV show of the year?
Doctor Who, Chuck, Heroes, Supernatural, Merlin, The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Your favourite LJ community of the year?
I don't really have a favourite - they're just useful places to spend time with people with whom I share interests.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
Chuck, with the Buffyverse close behind. Also, Merlin has been good fun.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
I can't really think of one.

Your TV boyfriend of the year?
Milo Ventimiglia.

Your TV girlfriend of the year?
Freema Agyeman.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
The clip of all the past Doctors in The Next Doctor. Who said Paul McGann doesn't count??!

Press Gang.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
It's not a TV fandom, but I keep meaning to get round to reading some Jasper Fforde books.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?
More Doctor Who.

...and all I got was...well, nothing, actually...

Had a good weekend. Sarah and I went Christmas shopping on Saturday - went to Bluewater and picked up various odds and ends, then rounded it off with a meal at TGI Friday's before heading back to Chelmsford. Sarah stayed around until about 5:30 (we had a bit of a shnuggle) before heading back to her mum's.

Watched Merlin (disappointingly unslashy, IMO - almost like I was watching the wrong show or something), ordered a pizza, felt generally lethargic, went to bed.

Then Sarah came down mid-morning on Sunday and helped me sort out my wardrobe - chucking out the (many) clothes which are too small or in tatters or have bleach stains down the sleeves (my fault, shouldn't wear them when I'm cleaning). As a result of which, there is now a fair bit more room in my wardrobe but I still have quite a few clothes which still fit me and are in good condition. So *yay*!

After that, we had lunch at Chelmsford's branch of Loch Fyne. It's admittedly a bit on what I consider the pricey side, but you get what you pay for - good food, good friendly service. Can't recommend it highly enough if you've got a branch in your area.

After that, we drove (I drove) round to Antonia's (I had difficulty with parking...) and Sarah met Jakob, whom she's not seen in ages (he seemed pleased to see his auntie!) and Eleni, whom she's not seen at all. So that was nice.

Sarah went back to her mum's (she's a star, really, driving out to see me twice in the same weekend), and meanwhile I felt vaguely productive, or at least less lethargic than I had done on Saturday, and did a bit of tidying and cleaning. Also cooked up some chicken for dinner. I had been going to Nando it, but didn't have much sauce, so instead I just settled for grilling it and having it with some new potatoes (Somerfield do a lovely little pack of new potatoes with herbs and butter which microwaves in 6 minutes and tastes wonderful), peas, and salad cream. Really rather scrummy.

Also watched another couple of episodes of Buffy. I'm on the fourth season at the moment, and have reached Wild at Heart (and Spoiler for a seven-year old episode )) and The Initiative (which was all a bit unexpected).

Oh, and at various points over the weekend, I also watched The History Boys, which was better than I remember it being when I saw it at the cinema. I was trying to work out where I recognised Andrew Knott (Lockwood) from, and it must be from Spooks: Code 9.

We're currently on a closedown day at work for a Christmas celebratory lunch thing. Loads of staff are out the back watching Mamma Mia.

Thanks to Becky, I'll be going to see David Tennant in Hamlet at the weekend. Suffice it to say, I'm rather excited by that!

Also at the weekend, Sarah and I will be sorting out Christmas cards. Anybody who hasn't asked for one, please feel free to pop along and leave your address.
