December

I can't believe it's December already. It doesn't feel like it. We haven't had any snow (well, it's snowed but it was just a slight dusting) and today feels like Spring. It's fantastic.  Perhaps Mother Nature listened when I suggested that it only snow between December 22 and January 2.  I only want snow for the holidays.

Anyway, not much has been happening. I did finally decide to begin watching Doctor Who, so I got series one from the library. Well... the first episode was rather... corny. Mannequins come to life because they're being controlled by an alien thing hiding beneath the Millennium Wheel? Like I said, corny. But I kept watching and then "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances" happened and I was hooked. I must say, I enjoyed Christopher as the Ninth Doctor very much, though I was looking forward to David Tennant (as I had heard SO much about how amazing he is). And, everyone was right. David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor is phenomenal. I finished series four 2 weeks ago and have been putting off series five. I'm sure Matt Smith is great, but David Tennant is my Doctor. Just as Rose is my companion (I felt that Martha was just eh, though Donna is a close second to Rose). Doomsday broke my heart.

Other than becoming a Whovian, I've been reading. Not as much as I'd like to, but oh well! I'm up to 85 books read for the year and 2 weeks ago I received an ARC of The Archived by Victoria Schwab that I'd dying to read. The only problem is that I just haven't felt much like reading. Plus, the library finally got in "Days of Blood and Starlight" for me and I keeping telling myself that I must. read. it. soon.

Also, I've been working on my autograph collection. I received a couple signed book plates (Marissa Meyer, George W. Bush) and signed photos (Joan Fontaine & Mary Costa, aka the voice of Sleeping Beauty). I have a few more letters out, waiting for a response. I just love doing this :)

I'll be participating in a Blog Hop in a couple days, so check back!

Yes! Someone else getting hooked on Doctor Who!
one of us... one of us... :D

I'm in Florida right now, so I'm super jealous of your snow, even if there isn't much of it.

It's awesome that it's still spring-like in terms of weather:)

And I'm sure Victoria Schwab's book will get you hooked again:)

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Dr. Who lately and I've been thinking about trying it out. Sadly, I don't know anyone who has a copy to borrow.

I'm like you on the autographs I have several I go to conventions ever year. Hope everyone sends you some good SWAG!
