Introducing My Niece to Doctor Who

I’m sick today and babysitting my niece. Que telly time. Usually, I’m a good aunt, parks and craft time and playing getting trussed up in jail. Which is loads of fun and loads of energy. I don’t have loads of energy today.

Also, I’m tired of Milan, Treasure Planet, and Rise of the Guardians.

So, I put on Doctor Who.

Que questions and comments. My favorite by far was when Micky gets his hands caught by the plastic trashcan. She goes, “Don’t swallow him!” It took everything I have not to laugh out loud when it did and she turned to me with her shocked face.

Most fun sick day ever.

Doctor Who a Person of Pinterest

OK. I know I’ve done a lot of – OH MY GOD I FOUND THIS ON PINTEREST. But, honestly, the most I have time for anymore is flipping through pages of Pinterest. I’ll even admit I have a secret Wedding board. UGH! I’m one of those girls. But, I assure you it is necessary for sanity.

I left my home, my friends, and my routine for hope. For love. And while I’m believing good things will happen and have my sisters and a roof over my head, my routine is all shot to hell and back again. For someone with an anxiety disorder, that is extremely disruptive and I fight bouts of depression throughout the days. Pinterest can pull me back from dark thoughts because it brings me belief that I can eventually be in a better place to make the things I want to make, it gives me laughter when I find something silly, and it’s a small slice of my routine I am able to keep.

All that to say.  I found some cool Doctor Who things on Pinterest. Like these TARDIS flip flops. GAH! I want! My own TARDIS is stuffed out in my sister’s garage, I had to cut it in half just to get it here, and all my pictures and reminders of how to smile again are locked up in a plastic prison. To make up for that, I think my sisters are going to need to through me a Doctor Who birthday party and make one of these TARDIS pinatas, because, well, because they owe me.

TARDEx for all your shipping needs you didn’t know you had yesterday. Seriously, this should exist! ;)

Hot Topic must have a license to sell, because they have a lot of Doctor Who stuff. Like this Sleeper Set for women. It actually does look comfortable.

My niece has an ice tray with star shapes, don’t I deserve this TARDIS and Dalek mold to make my own geeky ice?

I like how these people added touches of Doctor Who to their wedding. It’s a little subtle with the Rose and blue references (especially as the blue isn’t TARDIS blue), but it’s a cute idea. The huge entrance TARDIS is a nice touch.

TARDIS Dress, the 12th Doctor and More

Thanks to FM for letting me know about this awesome TARDIS dress. I like the skirt part of the dress, but I do think the corset could be a little more fitted on the woman.

Peter Capaldi has been cast as the 12th Doctor, as you probably all have heard. I’ve seen him in other Moffet productions, Doctor Who as Caecilius and on Torchwood as John Frobisher, and on World War Z. None of his roles really stand out in my head, even after reviewing them on IMDB, this is probably because he becomes his role rather than just being himself in the role. Hopefully, this portends good things. But Matt Smith will always be MY Doctor. So, I would probably be as ambivalent about any new actor in the role.

My friend Stephanie B. posted this awesome picture she took on a trip to the at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park. I <3 this so much. Thanks for sharing Stephanie!! Check out her tumblr here: http://www.retromondays.tumblr.com/.

Doctor Who Day: 12th Doctor, Vintage Pendants, and a Flask

Read a post on the Geek Force Network for one woman’s top 12 picks for the 12th Doctor. I’m voting on number 3. Chiwetel Ejiofor for the win!

I like to go onto Etsy and search for Doctor Who or TARDIS and just see the awesome things people are making and producing. Like this Delete decal staring a Cyberman for your geeky keyboard. I also found a charming Fez and Bow-Tie charm necklace that is just adorable and this TARDIS vintage pendant that is really cool. But the most adorable find on Etsy, that is also kind of the creepiest, is this Are You My Mummy bib. Awww. ::Shudder::

I like searching Etsy because there are always new finds and interesting projects being made. But sometimes I don’t immediately find the best stuff searching on Etsy. Instead I head over to Pinterest where I find this amazing TARDIS flask. Yes, it leads back to Etsy. But it had gotten lost among the other not so great stuff.  [via]

I follow Nerdist Channel on Youtube and Chris Hardwick really does some cool stuff. Like bowling with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. Or sending off some of his peeps to the U.K. to meet up with Arthur Darvill to tour some of his favorite London taxidermy shops. I am TOTALLY jealous. The popcorn skulls was my favorite.
