These are the kind of comments box exchanges that make Struggling Author THE place to go

... and the place to be frustrated that haloscan eats them when they get archived.

Following Marie's complaint about her erratic boiler system, Stu_n decided that what she really needed was just some cheering up. And cue citation:

I walked right past that DT near Oxford Circus today.

He isn't half skinny. And those glasses he wears as the Doc? Model's own.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Has he got rid of the beard yet?

And I *really* like the detail about the glasses. I won't be able to sleep tonight.

He has indeed had a shave. In fact, he looked in full-on Doctor mode except, y'know, wearing his own clothes.

I want to live in London!
I'm coming down this week - perhaps I will see him!
How exciting!

My boiler keeps randomly turning itself off. So I wake up in the morning to a freezing flat and no hot water. And lots of swearing in the shower. I've taken to waking up 2 hours early just to check it's on. It's not natural.

I've seen lots of celebs living in London, it's true. Not DT though. If I ever do, then I'll subtly knock him out with a swift, but non lethal, blow to the temple, and deliver him to your door. No! Even better. I'll ring you up, and you can "fight me off" and save him. Or something. With hilarious consequences.

I think I'm still drunk from last night.

"a swift, but non lethal blow"... I can't see that going at all wrong.

Can I call you as a witness for the defence?

Sure, because once you've killed David Tennant, I'm going to be *so* sympathetic to your cause. Even if you did do it for me... bless...

Hahaha! That'd be such a wonderful psycho moment. Me standing there, covered in blood, Dr Who no longer for this world, and me falling to my knees, wailing "BUT I DID IT FOR YOOOOU!!!"

Happy days. I should just state for the record that I won't actually be attacking David Tennant. If I did bump into him, I'd be too busy pumping him for Billie's phone number.

A few points: Stu_n needs to be thinking of his readers when he next sees DT in the street. We want a full wardrobe report* - even though the glasses detail was adorably great. And Del might need to refine his desire to please Marie by clocking celebs out for the count, but I suspect that several may be wanting to share that Billie Piper phone number. Caroline: let me just say, I'm in agreement!

* Note: Some may have disliked THAT floral shirt as worn in the first David and Freema first shoot, but I was rather fond of its excess. Nice to read in the current edition of Dr Who magazine that David defended it! Hurrah for OTT shirts!

If you must know, he was dressed very much like he was in Who Do You Think You Are — jeans, light-coloured shirt over (I think) red t-shirt, light jacket. Lots of hair wax. He's something over six foot and very slim. Couldn't see his feet, cos it was very crowded. He was looking down and seemed to be deliberately not making eye-contact with people — it looked like he really didn't want to be hassled. It was right by Oxford Circus Tube and there were loads of people trying to squeeze through to or from the Regent Street crossing — I literally had to edge past him.

That Shirt is in the autumn range at Ted Baker, by the way. Do they still have a branch by the Market Square?

Hmmm... can I get away with buying one of them for Neil?

Hmmm... not without causing some problems!!!!

If you do want to get one (and they've got lots of designs that are similar, but different enough...) then you should probably go to the special evening shopping thingy that the Observer are organising. You'll get 20% discount, and at Ted Baker prices, that's a very good thing!

Any Observer page link or do I need to buy the paper?

stu_n said...

This should take you straight to the application page.

Merci! Now I just have to persuade boy Cloud that a floral excessive shirt really really would suit him...
