You really went out of the house with those?

Magnet #70 - Pompei

Nope, haven't been. Another one brought back by my sister.

Using it only because tonight's Doctor Who episode on SciFi is "Fires of Pompeii." Yes, yes, I watched it the night it came out in the UK on YouTube, but I'm SO happy to be seeing it on a non-YouTube/non-pixelated screen.

Apparently, they went to Italy to film, but they did no filming in Pompeii. Not quite true. There's a YT vid of one of their DW Confidentials, where they're touring the site. And there was geeky-chicy David Tennant,* in full on black socks and shorts. I mean, there were other clothes of course, but nothing's funnier than a man wearing shorts and sneaks...and black socks.

At least, according to my sisters. But, ever since the first time they pointed out the combo, with a huge giggle, I can no longer look at it without a (sometimes) silent snicker.

Turning the subject on a dime...just got home from Iron Man. GO. NOW. SEE IT.

Stay through the credits - totally worth the price of admission. If you're a comicsgeek.

I'm totally not and I still thought it was superduperawesome.

And I tell you one thing, Robert Downey, Jr.?

Wouldn't be caught dead in shorts, sneaks and black socks. I'm just sayin.

Psst...please, no flame posts on David Tennant. I promise. I totally love the guy, despite the geeky-chicy socks.
Pin It!

Boys who wear black socks with shorts and sneakers are weirdos. Trust me. I know.

And you say you won't be sucked in.

Just give in to it! You know you want to! Plus, you already watch Torchwood...what's one more BBC show.
