The simple truth...with a twist.
This was supposed to be a place to put my sketches and illustrations but I am a major geek as well as working graphic designer/illustrator.
You'll probably have to endure photos of my dog, car, kayak, Doctor Who, Science or craft related things as well as pics and stories about the people I love if you follow me so you have been warned.
I'll try to keep my Doctor Who gifs over at:

Earlier in the day I tried to get through a couple events with Rocksmith on the Xbox that I play with my old real electric guitar
but my nose wouldn’t quit running long enough to get through a single song so I snuggled up with box of
Did several shots of
Spent 12 hours with my peeps
While creating a new Sims3 Gallifrey…in my world the Doctor must use the loo and wash his hands
Got a midnight *kiss* via text from husband who was working at the time
it was a little early so he called me right after :)
Then I did something daring and switched to PBS and watched Hugh Laurie’s journey to his Great Performance in New Orleans
And capped off the evening with a final shot of Coldplay “LIVE” (meaning recorded in September) News Years Eve 2012 event on Austin City Limits. Mostly because I lost my remote in my blankets and was too achy to search for it but I enjoyed it all the same.
All in all, it was not a horrible NYE
I woke this morning feeling remarkably well and not even a little bit hung-over as Nyquil tends to make me feel.
I’m ready for 2012 and I hope every one of you has an amazing year.
tricialew asked: I just got my Doctor Who–The Brilliant Book 2012. The first thing I did was search the table of contents for all of the Neil Gaimany Goodness. It is all lovely! I remember an interview with Christopher Eccleston as he began his Doctor days and he said he’d be happy if he captured the 8-12 year old fans. He did better than that as did the writers. Did you have a target age group in mind when writing for Doctor Who or has it evolved beyond even needing to think of such things?
When I wrote my Doctor Who episode, I wanted to write the kind of story that would work if you were eight and work if you were sixty, even if it worked in different ways.
And that seemed important: that it be an episode for someone who had never see Doctor Who before and was watching it on a sofa with a parent reassuringly close, and that it would also be for someone like me who had grown up with Doctor Who, who remembered William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton when they were first broadcast.
Glad you liked The Brilliant Book. I love that I got to write my own little slice of Corsair fan-fiction in there, and it’s now sort-of true.
Sort-of true?!? Yes!!!
These arrived yesterday which explains my absence on Tumblr as well as my failure at packing my suitcase and finishing the wedding programs and place-cards that have to fly with me. The Brilliant Book is so much fun and beautifully done. They’re both hardcover so they might be too bulky to take with me. Maybe just one of them.
