She's off to a wedding today, but I'd still like to wish funkyinfishnet a very, very Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day and a fabulous birthday weekend, funkyinfishnet! :-D And, as you're a big Doctor Who fan, these birthday wishes somehow seemed appropriate:
I only just realized (thanks to an email from the BBC Doctor Who Official Shop) that today is the tenth anniversary of New Doctor Who, which debuted on March 26, 2005. I can't believe it's been ten years! I still remember tuning in to watch that first episode, excited but trepidatious after the previous attempt to resurrect the franchise (that awful 1996 TV movie). Happily, I didn't have to get too far into the episode before I realized that New Who was good. Really, really, really good. ( Thank Rassilon! )
Thanks to alysscarlet, I was able to watch Peter Davison's HILARIOUS and absolutely priceless Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary spoof sooner than I expected. It's 30 minutes and features a lot of familiar faces. In fact, I was amazed at the number of cameos, all of which were GOLD. Anywaaaaaay, it's called The Five(ish) Doctors (in case you hadn't heard), and you can find it here:
The BIG day is finally here! The day
I hope all you Whovians enjoy "The Day of the Doctor"! Unfortunately, I'll be out when it's broadcast, so I'll have to tape it. However, I'll be having lunch with old friends, which seems like a very Doctorish thing to do. Besides, I'm usually thrilled if I can see a new episode on the same day it airs in Britain, so I don't know what I'm complaining about. *g*
Time Lord! Oh, and it's not just any Time Lord, but my favourite Doctor! Tee hee! :-D
It's so sweet that the Fifth Doctor cares. And as his postcard also has a Canadian stamp on it, I'm assuming he either asked a good and kind-hearted Canadian (and quite very possibly a friend of mine) to mail it on his behalf. Then, of course, he could have infiltrated Canada Post (child's play for a Time Lord, I'm sure) or maybe he even travelled here and sent the postcard himself...Well, however the Fifth Doctor managed it, I'm very grateful for the postcard from him (and any accomplices). Thank you very much, Doctor! :-D
I decided to throw all of my decent (and not-so-decent) pictures from Reversed Polarity in a Photobucket album. This album includes all of the pictures from my last post, but there are also photos I held back. In some cases, I held them back because they were a bit blurry or just not as nice. However, there are some that just didn't make it because I was lazy or already had another shot of the same subject. I believe my pictures have been arranged by filename, so the order is a bit wonky. If, after all this, you're still interested, you can visit the album by clicking on the TARDIS below:
A HUMONGOUS thank you to the very kind friend who sent me this wonderful postcard! It was a very pleasant (and totally unexpected) surprise! And what a perfect way to

Notes: Here’s my annual offering for jackycomelately’s birthday. I’m posting it more than a week early because I’ll be away on jackycomelately’s special day. I’m not sure if this is up to my usual standard of lunacy, but I hope the birthday girl will still manage to get something out of it.
( Happy EARLY Birthday, jackycomelately! )
