Well, when you're feeling blue, there's nothing to distract one like old Doctor Who reruns. And we have been watching them aplenty, thanks to a free trial month with netflicks. They have tons of The Doctor available for immediate download. So thorough has been our immersion that I constantly go around with the wierd psychedelic theme song rattling around in my head. Kind of changes your perspective on the world. At any moment an evil Dalek may jump out at me!

No wait! Now I find I am not the only one with Doctor Who on the brain. Here I find a crocheter (Is that a word?) of Daleks.


Is that not just a hoot?

I know some-OK, most of you-are uninitiated to the wierd world of Doctor Who. I never heard of him until I married my ever sci-fi loving hubby. But really, you've gotta try one. And to get the real full effect, you gotta get one with Tom Baker. (He was also Puddleglum in the BBC's version of the Silver Chair, and the best thing about it too.)

We also like Peter Davison, who was also Tristan for the James Herriot series.
Once you watch a few, you will never have the same perspective on bubblewrap.
(And it would be fun if more people knew what on earth I was talking about....)
Call it a field trip into 60's British pop culture.

Death to Daleks!!

(I promise to take the music off in a day or two. Just wanted you to get the full effect.)

I was laughing *OUT LOUD* at that, Kerri. (My oldest daughter ran in saying, "What's so funny!?") And it got funnier the more I read. And the crocheted daleks (is that right?)...OH MY WORD. TOO funny. I am going to have to check these out just to find out about the bubble wrap.

Great post. I needed that!!

Love Dr. Who! I am stuck thinking it is too violent/realistic for my 3 boys, 9, 6, & 3, and wanting them to enjoy the show as much as I and Daddy do. They know we hustle them off to bed so we can watch it. They even have a tiny dalek that they fight over who gets to play with. Plus, the Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston, is sooo dreamy.

I'm a first time visitor to your site. Needless to say, I'll be back soon since I know there are Dr. Who fans around.

Oh, ugggh. Dr. Who? I come from a family of Dr. Who viewers...I am the black sheep in the family. I kind of have to have a love/hate relationship with the series.

Have you seen Buckaroo Banzai?

Bubblewrap at its finest. :)
