Who??

Okay, I have to put in my two cents on the new Doctor Who choice.  I knew that it would be an almost impossible task to replace Tennant in my eyes.  How could they choose this child?  Obviously I haven't seen him act, so he may surprise me as far as talent goes.  That aside, I firmly believe that they should not have chosen anyone that wasn't even born when Tom Baker was Doctor.  Call me crazy, but this show has been around and kept going by people who have watched it for year and years.  I have to wonder if having a new baby-faced semi-goth guy is a ploy to get more teens into the show, possibly playing on the popularity of the teen-goth genre that seems to be all the rage at the moment.  If so, I am well and truly disappointed that they would be such sell outs.  I just don't know if I can watch it if this child sucks as an actor.  Let's face facts.  The show is completely dependent on how endearing each actor can make the Doctor.

In other news, I have to share two amusing tidbits from life in the past 24 hours.  I went to my brother's house last night for dinner because his roommate, Greg, cooked.  When I was leaving, I thanked him for dinner and he said, "Oh, tomorrow night is taco night.  That reminds me that I need to get some meat thawed out." Then he rushed over to the freezer for hamburger.  What is so funny about it is that I had this image of Greg being a good little Donna-Reed-pearl-wearing housewife from the 50's, which is really funny since he currently has numerous tattoos, piercings, a scraggly 4 inch goatee, and yellow hair, not blond, yellow.  Add in the fact that they joke around that they are hetero-life mates and it really is a funny picture.  Then again, maybe you had to be there...

The other amusing story has to do with my friend's 5-year old daughter.  I had lunch today with a friend and her daughter begged to come with us.  She was very good, especially for a 5-year old.  In fact she was so quiet at one point in time, I sort of forgot that she was there, so I made a comment about someone being a turbo-slut.  Lo and behold, here comes the question, "What's a turbo-slut?"  Of all of the things that were said today, she doesn't say a word until she hears the new word to add to her ever-expanding vocabulary.  Not good.  Fortunately, my friend didn't even miss a beat when she says, "Miss Lisa said turbo sled, which is a sled that goes really, really fast".  Her daughter just says oh and goes back to her Leap Frog game, no longer interested.  Good save.  That will teach me to be ever vigilant around any small child.

Finally, I got my hair cut today and I love it.  I have been flipping my hair everywhere all day long.  People must think that I am the most vain person, but the only time that I am like this is right after I get my hair done and it's perfect.
