This amused me greatly - a) because it's so true about the Target novelisations written by Uncle Terry (and I think I've unconsciously used more than one of the stock phrases mentioned in my own fic, so many of these did I read back in my schooldays), and b) because the idea generally tickles me:
See, your second one there sounds exactly like the sort of thing they'd use - very simple and to the point. Now, write about fifty short novels about Eleven and use that same description in every single one of them! ;D
Hmmm... I suppose this means I should make a Twitter account and enter then. Except, Twitter kind of scares me. I mean, the last time I had an account I never used it, not once, and it wasn't connected to my regular email address, and I didn't tell anyone about it, and it had no personal information attached... yet I somehow ended up with several followers from the city I live in and the school I go to and it was just beyond creepy.
No, no, that sort of thing is why I steer clear of social networking sites. I value my internet anonymity, such as it is (although I'm sure people could quite easily find out who I am if they really wanted to).
Er...not that I have any sinister motives for wanting to remain incognito, you understand... ;D
I entered, I got twitter ages ago and never use it, I hate it, it's self-absorbed and obnoxious but here is my entry, it's a bit wordy but not over their character limit.

"I'm the Doctor; I'm worse than everybody's aunt!" [/color] The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.[/color]
Not a Twitter-er here either. Same reason I don't even like being on facebook - only there under protest to keep up with my kid, and that under a pseudonym. :-P Not that it has anything to do with secretly working as a minion for JJ... nope, nothing. *whistles innocently*
How about "Gilligan if he were a bow-tied Professor" That's only 40 with spaces, so we've even room to elaborate, though it does assume a familiarity with who Gilligan is. Perhaps we should add some modifiers like "caffeinated" or "angular".
