So true! So true. Since it turned midnight last night, I’ve practically been shaking my booty in my pj pants, I’m so excited to be 29 years old.
Now, technically, I shouldn’t have been excited until around morning-time, but I don’t care. The 21st is the 21st. If it’s close enough for public record, it’s close enough for jazz… and that’s close enough for me.
I BEAT 28. HA!
Now, those of you who know me really well will know that the “Ha!” just there was punctuated and created specifically to look like David Tennant’s version of The Doctor from BBC’s Doctor Who. And I guess those of you who don’t know me really well will now know that too. 🙂
I love Doctor Who. There are people out there who don’t love the show, and who will talk about the massive plot holes and its detractors, and I can *fully* appreciate where they are coming from, but I love the program. Specifically, I like it because regardless of its preachy nature (yes, I can admit that it’s got more than a little bit of a self-righteous science vs. God bent) it constantly pounds home the following ideas:
- Almost any problem can be solved if you stop panicking and use your resources and your brain.
- No matter how much we may like it to be otherwise, each of us has a unique place in time and space, and that cannot be changed.
- The length of a life cannot begin to measure the impact it has on the future, not for a family, a community, or even the whole of creation
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m no BBC advert over here. I just was thinking about the most recent episode earlier today. The next one comes out on Christmas. Adam got a new episode on his birthday, and I think I’m just jealous. 🙂
By the way – this is SO not the entry I set out to write. Maybe that one will come later. I guess that’s what happens sometimes.
