Unconducive

UnconduciveThe Doctor had been right about the annual mass migration of Callibemmian crayfish being an amazing sight, but the planet wasn't terribly human friendly.

Between their rebreather masks, the atmosphere's poor sound conducting properties and the Doctor long ago cannibalising the rebreathers' bone conduction units for parts, they'd been rendered effectively deaf.

Rose had learned that, in the absence of external stimuli, her heartbeat and breathing sounded abnormally loud. She also discovered that if she had to watch Jack and the Doctor show off in improvised sign language one more time, she'd kill them both and use the mime defence.

LOL! Somehow I think that Jack would be really annoying signing - wouldn't want to play charades against him at Christmas either! ;)

I don't know if you can do innuendo in improvised sign language, it may cramp his style.

Oh I'm pretty sure he could. Easy as falling off a log! ;)

Can't access any of my community sites and read this courtesy of my friends page but then couldn't post a comment -sigh.

That's applause to the uninitiated.

Re: Victim to the lj cookie monster
The cookie thing is getting annoying, but considering we're suffering it thanks to a bunch of retarded script kiddies attacking LJ, perhaps it's the lesser of two evils.

Happy you liked it.

What is it about mimes anyway?

I don't know, but the clown-like makeup isn't helping their cause. Maybe it's an uncanny valley thing.

I was doing okay until you referenced mimes. Now I'm turning on all the lights and looking behind the curtains ...

I'll get over it. We don't have mime's in Albion -- town ordinance.
