|07:36 pm - Between adventures|
We seem to be between adventures again, so I'm brewing some moonshine to replace the TARDIS' depleated stocks. I may try my hand at brewing some rum as well if I can find a decent recipe.
I may have to write another part of my companion survival guide to relieve the boredom while I wait for this little lot to be done.

|10:23 pm - Heading into a Haunted House|
Currently I've gone into a haunted house with some of the other companions. Other than it being dark and scary, nothing much has actually happened yet.
I have been taking sips from my hip flask to steady my nerves, but unfortunately the alcohol tolerance I've built up over recent years isn't working in my favour. I may have to sneak away to get something harder.
Current Mood: not drunk enough

I've managed to persaude the Doctor to visit the carnival everyone else seems to have gone to, so at the moment Dave and I are wandering around looking for people. Dave's managed to persude me to try candy floss, of all things. It's sickly sweet.
Perhaps we can find someone selling carrot juice. Or brandy, I don't mind which.

We'd been drifting inside this supernova for a few hours or so when these... well, these creatures turned up and started floating around the TARDIS. I took some pictures as drlongscarf suggested, and they're now stored in the TARDIS databanks. The creatures were sort of shimmering outlines- I couldn't tell if they had any features at all.
The Doctor did something with the console and went quiet for a while. Dave thought he might have been activating some weaponry, but I was fairly sure it was the telepathic circuits he was mucking with. Eventually he said he'd been talking with the aliens, and they were quite friendly.
So then the aliens pushed the TARDIS out of the supernova, and we're back on our way. It's a bit of a relief, to be honest - The SPF5000000 sunblock clashed with my costume.
Current Mood: relieved

|07:11 pm - This is a bit weird...|
The comet crashed into the supernova, and now we seem to be inside it. The Doctor doesn't know why the TARDIS hasn't vapourised, but it seems to be floating safely for now...

|08:37 pm - Still stuck to the comet|
We tried drlongscarf's suggestion of using the TARDIS's vortex drive to create an anti-gravity spiral, but it appears we are too firmly wedged into the comet to break loose.
We've tried an emergency dematerialisation, of course, but something seems to be interfering. Perhaps it's the proximity of the supernova which we're about to plunge into.
Um. *clings to Dave*
I just hope we survive this!
Current Mood: scared

|10:50 pm - Trying to get to the carnival|
We all piled into the TARDIS and took off to get to the Carnival everyone seems to be at...
Unfortunately, the Doctor ran into a comet (he is really having a bad week) and now we're stuck in it. And the comet is heading straight for the supernova.
Current Mood: scared

Well, the Doctor had a go at surfing all right. He was doing quite well too, until he wiped out. The judges gave him a 5.8 which meant he came in second-to-last.
He's currently sulking, I think. Dave and I are in the bar with the winners.

|06:46 pm - Supernova Surfing|
We seem to have ended up on a space station where they're holding a supernova surfing contest. The contestants wear heavy radiation suits and ride the shockwave of this supernova which the space station is near.
Personally I think it seems extremely dangerous, but the Doctor is talking about having a go. I hope he knows what he's doing!
Current Mood: worried

|08:04 pm - The Eye of Orion|
We're currently relaxing at (on? in?) the Eye of Orion while the Doctor makes some repairs to the TARDIS. Dave and I have gone tramping more or less to sight see.
The scenery here is breathtaking, and not an alien monster in sight. Well, not counting Dave, of course.
