You may recall, if you read this blog, that I took a trip to Ireland and the UK last summer. I found this in Glasgow. Isn’t it awesome? It looks like The Doctor’s TARDIS. However, looks can be deceiving.
Anyway, here are the answers to the teaser questions.
1. Who is the Master? Why is he special?
The Master is an evil Time Lord and one of The Doctor’s greatest nemeses. He is like Moriarty to The Doctor’s Sherlock Holmes, as it were.
2. Who was Adric? Why was he special? What happened to him?
Adric was the first companion from outside the normal universe and a Maths prodigy. He died (sob) in one of the most heart-breaking scenes from the show … other than Tom Baker regenerating … aghhh!!!
3. Who was Romana? Why was she special? What happened to her?
Romana as a female Timelord companion and she was totally awesome! She was left in E-Space, with K-9, the awesome robot dog.
And here she is … again!
4. When did Sarah Jane Smith realize The Doctor was the love of her life?
Ha! Trick question. Sarah and The Doctor were always great friends. Close friends. Their relationship was special, but not romantic.
And, just as an aside, this is also how I knew I had a true friend in Paul.
5. In which early episode did River Song have a walk-on part?
Trick question! None. Ha ha ha …
6. Which came first, the Daleks, the Cybermen, or the Weeping Angels?
The Daleks, of course. Easy peasy!
7. Which actor played The Doctor in the episode called “Island of the Laughing Squid”?
Trick question! There is no such episode. Ha ha ha …
8. What were the Daleks a metaphorical reference to?
The Nazis, of course!
I’m just kidding, of course! I’m not really calling those kids Nazis. That would be over the line. Ha ha ha …
9. Define the word “metaphor”.
A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metaphor
10. How many Weeping Angels can dance on a pinhead?
The answer is that it doesn’t matter.
Bonus Question: The Doctor’s TARDIS looks like it does, because its chameleon circuit is busted. So, a properly functioning TARDIS could look like this …
There, I blogged it!
As for my mission, it’s continuing. And I’m right on target. Still writing every day and working on my Web content.
Thanks to all the awesome ones who supported my Indiegogo campaign! We fell short of the goal by only $240. So, I’m still standing! Alive and writing.
If and when I feel the need, I’ll run another campaign. For now, I’m focusing on my writing, etc.
Thanks again, Paul, for being a real friend and blogger!
I’d even parachute into snow-covered England, without an electrically-heated suit, so I could enjoy a cuppa with you and Trevor here …
or since I’m a huge Spaghetti Western fan …!
“You’re on this mission because you’re an American.” That’s the key.
And if you have no idea WTF I’m talking about, you simply must see this movie as soon as possible. Really!
Especially if you love explosions. And strong women. Like the awesome Sue Grafton!
OMG! Look what’s coming up at the Silver Theatre!!!! Awww …
You can read about the
horrible soft-shell crab sandwich, actually, in this book!
UPDATE: Roger Ebert tweeted this, okay?
Plus here’s The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, like you’ve never seen it before!
OMG! My funny sister just shared this with me on Facebook. I’m so
appalled embarassed (sp?) weirded out amazed sorry for Portland everyone without words!!!
Also, I have no idea why William Shatner tweeted this, but I think he’s awesome!
UPDATE 2: I feel I simply must include this quotation and song from Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar, because my dead friend Bill was a huge fan of Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary, and they both seem most fitting for this blog and my rebranding!
“Circus, n: A place where horses, ponies and elephants are permitted to see men, women and children acting the fool.”
From Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary
