Book chat and a meme

I attended the first meeting of the book group I've joined at work today - the one I read I'm Not Scared for. I hadn't been too sure about the group previously, but actually I really enjoyed the meeting. Having a good old chat about the book was fun, and I'm getting to like the other people in the group more, now that we've interacted a bit. There are some quiet folks, but also plenty of people who are prepared to speak up with interesting opinions, while at the same time being keen to listen to other people's contributions.

So I shall certainly be going along to the next meeting, and have already snagged the only copy of the next book we'll be reading (The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón) from the University library - mua-ha-ha-hah!

Meanwhile, I took the 'Which Doctor?' test that everyone else has been taking. Last time I did one, I came out as the First Doctor - but then that was three years ago, the new series hadn't started up yet, and there were fewer options available. This time, despite this little exchange on nwhyte's journal this morning, I took it without aiming for any particular result at all, but simply answering all the questions as honestly as I could. I suspect that my result hinged largely on my answer to the final question, which I found really hard, dithering between two of the four options for ages. Was my ideal doctor a Victorian gentlemen, or an eccentric and perpetually curious thinker?


Your Score: The Tenth Doctor


You scored 30% intelligence, 60% compassion, 35% sense of humor, and 0% weirdness!




You're a charming, friendly, easy-going sort -- the type who looks just as comfortable in a suit and tie as in a bathrobe. Nothing fazes you...until someone starts picking on somebody you love. Then you get all intense and pull a face not unlike an angry bullpup. Yeah, it's hard to take you seriously sometimes, but you're nobody's fool. Your turn-ons include pinstripes, Douglas Adams, incoherent mumbling, Elvis, Scots accents, and Kylie Minogue, apparently. Your turn-offs include Christmas angst, long-distance relationships, jealousy, and other people's stubborn parents.
