Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
deek, you're a great correspondent!It's great that you've picked up the guitar again. Stick with it.A friend just loaned me an ancient Neapolitan-style mandolin with the rounded back held together by narrow strips of wood. Fascinating instrument. I've decided to learn it.
Hi Deek, yell if you go cold turkey. I'm guessing you mean Doctor Who of the Ecclestone-Smith era. Or are you watching the Hartnell-McGann incarnations? Whichever, I could probably sort you out with a missing episode or two.
The last time I watched Dr. Who was the Tom Baker days . . . yeah, ok, I'm older than dirt . . . ha! And I second Cameron's observation: you are a great letter writer!
Thanks! I do love to write letters. I love the whole process, from reading them, to thinking about what to write back. To me, letter writing is a conversation, where I set aside some time to be with a friend and just converse. I don't have to worry about either of us monopolizing the conversation or getting distracted with other people or a phone call.Yeah, I've just been watching the Eccleston-Smith era (although I haven't gotten to Smith yet).Now there are some older Doctor Who options on Netflix, going back to the 60s, I believe. After I get through season four and five of this latest series, I think I'll be exploring the older stuff until season six makes it to Netflix.
I did not know this was your blog! =) I will enjoy corresponding with you. I've always wanted to learn the guitar--love how they sound--but it is the calluses that deter me. In order to get calluses one must first endure the pain. =/ Dr. Who <3
Yeah, I'm such a rockstar in the typosphere :PIt does suck, that initial few days of pain, but its worth it! I too, look forward to corresponding with you. I've actually got a date with my typewriter tonight and at least a couple letters to compose!
Wait until you get to Smith...(aka, the best Doctor yet!). Yes, I know I just caused a fight by saying that, but deal with it people. Moffat is the best writer that series has ever had. The 3 (Tennant/Smith) Weeping Angels episodes are super creepy and that first one (also starring Carey Mulligan) is THE episode that got me hooked on Doctor Who.
While I've heard several people tell me the first Weeping Angels ("Blink") got them hooked, this is the first time I've heard of Smith being the best Doctor. The few people that have voiced their opinion around me, have pointed to Tennant.So, I'll now be interested to see who this next transition goes down!
I like Tennant too...but Smith has the humor down better than Tennant. Yup, you ain't seen nothin' yet. I believe Moffat has written the majority of the Smith era episodes.
