Dear BBC America

Published August 23, 2014 by ia84

It’s been a crappy week.  A really crappy week.  A week I sincerely hope I never ever have to experience ever again.

Sure, there were moments that weren’t so bad.  Like getting to watch Sharknado 2.  That was pretty fantastic.  It also rocked that the boy spent a considerable amount of time hanging out with me, and he didn’t ever press me to find out what exactly had happened to make my week such a disaster.

Yeah, disaster is a pretty fair summation of the week.

So, that brings me to the point of all this…

You chose this weekend to premier the new season of Doctor Who.  Not only the new season, but the new Doctor.  This is incredibly exciting!  Knowing there’s new Who to look forward to has helped me get through the week.

So…no pressure…but…

Please Please PLEASE let it be awesome and amazing!  Please don’t break my little Who loving heart!

Like I said, it’s been a crappy week.

Love,

Me

Happy September!

Well, September is officially upon us.  It’s Labor Day weekend, which means I’m spending my time working through homework and studying.  I got to watch the first Husker game of the season this afternoon, and by “watched” I mean that I had it on while I worked on Spanish.  All in all, though, it was a pretty decent game.  Right now I’m watching Return of the Jedi on Spike.  I’m trying to figure out if their showing one of Lucas’ newer versions, or if it looks so much better because this is the first time I’m watching it on my new television.  (I should clarify.  I mean it looks better in that the colors are more vivid and the overall picture is much sharper.)

When it comes to exercise, August was kind of a disaster.  I’m determined to not let September face the same fate.  Hence, tomorrow I will get back to walking, aerobics, and other general stretching.  The plan was to do so tonight, but I’ve had some issues arise that will keep that from happening.

Season 7 of Doctor Who began tonight.  I don’t have BBC America, so I was unable to watch it.  That’s okay though, it’s no different that any other season of Who.   I’m just super excited that the new season is this year, because I was under the impression that it wasn’t going to start until 2013.  Also, I’m really looking forward to the western episode that has Ben Browder.  (He’s Crichton from Farscape, and he was in the final couple of seasons of SG1).

Oh look, it’s Princess Leia in a gold bikini.  Man, that had to have been an incredibly uncomfortable costume.

I’m so glad I didn’t live a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Friday Night Questions

Published August 17, 2012 by ia84

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Why do some stores already have Christmas decorations for sale?

If the TARDIS translates all languages, why is the Dcotor the only one who understands “Baby?”

Is it pathetic that if I had the option at school to get BBC America instead of Oxygen and WE networks, I’d chose BBC America?

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the Packing Fairy?

What if, after the credits rolled on The Dark Knight Rises, all of a sudden you saw Sheldon from Big Bang Theory sitting there and he said, “Bazinga!  I’m Batman!”?

Plant or fish?

If you had the chance to go anywhere in the world, and money wasn’t an issue, where would you go and why?
