Dr. Who?

Yes! Another random, rarely posted blog entry! Yay!

I've decided to try something new. Go in a different direction with my blog.

I have a difficult time writing ONLY about Etsy and my work. It must get boring for my readers too, right? (What readers? Ha!)

So I'm going to attempt to blog about my random thoughts. Things that cross my mind.

Tonight, it's Dr. Who!

Now, many of you are probably thinking, "What? You mean that cheesy old British show I used to come across while I was flipping the channels in the 80's?"

Yes! Kind of...

You see, as a kid, I watched Dr. Who. Tom Baker was the Doctor then (dating myself much?) and yes, it was full of cheesy goodness.

But what I REALLY mean is the new series.

Here in Canada, our equivalent to the Sci-Fi channel is called the Space channel. I love the Space channel.

This summer, Space decided to rerun the whole new Dr. Who series, starting with episode 1 with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, every night at midnight.

Being the night owl I am, and having been interested in seeing the new series, I watched. And watched. And I've watched every night since.

And boy do I get bitchy on weekends or holidays when Space decides to air crappy horror or sci-fi movies instead of my Doctor!

Season 1 was good. But I didn't really like Christopher Eccleston until the last 3 episodes of the season.
And then he was gone and David Tennant took over as the Doctor.

And I was a complete goner.

David Tennant, to me, IS the Doctor. He didn't have to grow on me...I loved him right away.

And Rose. Oh, Rose...The perfect companion to my Doctor.

For those of you that haven't seen it yet, I won't spoil it for you. I know I've recently stumbled upon some spoilers and I was so NOT impressed. I love not knowing what happens. I love seeing it through new eyes.

But I'm now...well, Space is now halfway through season 3 with David Tennant, and I'm still going strong.

So strong in fact that recently I went out and spent way too much money on every single episode of Dr. Who from the 4th Doctor, Tom Baker, to the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith.

It should arrive in the mail any day now.

So if you don't see my around Facebook or on Etsy...I'll be in the TARDIS. With my Doctor. ;)
