Since it’s almost Thanksgiving, what better time to talk about how much I’m looking forward to Christmas. ^_^ Not because of the presents (I’m only getting money, anyway, to buy my Nook). Not because of the dinner. Not because of the happiness that comes when everybody opens their presents. Not because my cat acts like she’s dying when we put discarded wrapping on her. No I, like all good Whovians, am looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas special. I haven’t watched the trailer yet, because I’m waiting for my mom to watch it with me, but from the pictures I’ve seen in my numerous Doctor Who group thingies on Facebook, it looks really good. I mean reeeeeeeally good. Like all Doctor Who anything is. ^_^
I just felt like sharing this with you guys, because I’m not sure how many of you know just how big of a fangirl I am of the show. I’ll have been watching it for two years come January, and I’ve seen all the episodes from the reboot so far (but not the extended versions in some cases, because BBCAmerica cuts them down to size when they show the reruns).
The reason I’m so amped right now about Doctor Who is because I got my ThinkGeek package in the mail today. Along with my zombie skin, my caffeinated chocolate chip cookie, and my Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock mug, I got my happy, shiny new Doctor Who t-shirt. It has a picture of the Tardis on it, and it says “You never forget your first Doctor.” David Tennant, in either The End Of Time part 2, or The Shakespeare Code (I can’t remember which one I watched all the way through first). *squee!* My mom’s first episode was Planet Of The Dead. I love that we share this with each other. New episodes are our time, our geeky time. I’m an uber-geek with a non-geek mom, but at least she watches Doctor Who with me, right? And actually enjoys it, too. ^_^
So yeah, really looking forward to the Christmas special. I even found a countdown clock to it, in case you were curious. This was the first countdown clock I found, but it’s perfect!
