Day 30 - When Did You Become A Fan of Doctor Who?

It is the last day of 
March Who Madness! 
I have had a lot of fun blogging about 
Doctor Who. 
Can you believe I actually blogged 
every day for a whole month?!
Yeah, neither can I. 

I started seriously watching Doctor Who
in 2006 when the Syfy channel
started airing the "new" Who episodes.
I had seen some of the classic Who episodes on Syfy as well.
But I did not become a proper Whovian
until the new episodes.
Syfy actually aired the episodes
well after they were shown in Britain.
For example, they did not start showing
Season 1 (Eccleston's) episodes until 2006
and they originally aired in 2005 in Britain.
This is probably bad to admit;
but when I found that out,
I would watch the newer episodes
(that were available)
on YouTube as they would come out in Britain. 
Then I would buy the seasons on DVD as soon
as they were available in America.
I am so glad that BBC America now shows
the new episodes concurrently with the
British airings.

Day 29 - Favorite Guest Star

I absolutely loved
Sophia Myles as Madame de Pompadour.
The Girl in the Fireplace 
is one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who.
It was such a complete story that
left me wanting more.

Day 27 - Favorite Interview

This is not really an interview
but an episode of a British chat show.
Never Mind the Buzzcocks had a Doctor Who
special hosted by David Tennant
and Catherine Tate & Bernard Cribbins
were guests.
Of course, hilarity ensued!

Day 26 - Favorite Doctor Gadget

Of course, it is the sonic screwdriver.
It seems like it gains
new abilities almost every episode.
But that is part of its charm!

Tolkien Reading Day

I recently discovered that 
March 25th 
is Tolkien Reading Day. 
I have no clue how I have never 
heard of this before. 

"It all came about because a New York journalist enquired whether there was such a thing as a “Tolkien Reading Day”.
My grandparents were fishing folk from Buckie in the north of Scotland, carriers of the old stories and legends, and the trilogy has filled a certain hole in my life. I have many friends here in New York who were equally moved by the book, reignited by the film, and we all wondered: is there any day devoted informally to readings from the trilogy, in the way that “bloomsday” is devoted to Joyce?
That enquiry was sent to the Tolkien Society in January 2002. The then committee liked the idea and after a certain amount of discussion picked March 25th as “Tolkien Reading Day”. The rest, as they say, is history!
Thank you, Sean." 

I read The Hobbit this weekend 
and I am now reading Lord of the Rings
I absolutely love these books! 
I have read them many, many times 
but I always find something new 
with every re-reading. 

Are you a Tolkien fan? 
What is your favorite Tolkien book?

Day 22 - Favorite Friendship

Surprise, Surprise!
My favorite friendship is between
the Doctor & Donna.
They were the best of friends
and had grand adventures.
I also love the fact that David & Catherine
have become great friends in real life.
Well, based on interviews and the fact that
they have worked together many times
since Who.

mountain living

My best friends and I 
took a much needed vacation 
to Chattanooga, TN. 

It was a short trip 
only 4 days, 
but it was just what 
we needed to recharge. 

We spent our time there going to 
Ruby Falls, Lookout Mountain Incline Railway, 
and Rock City Gardens. 
It was a nice, lazy vacation! 

Day 21- Favorite Couple

Amy & Rory
have the greatest love story on Doctor Who! 
I love that their relationship 
was not perfect. 
But, no matter what, they were 
always there for each other. 
I need to find me a Rory!
