As Proof I Haven't Fallen the Face of The Earth

So, sdwolfpup tagged me for the 5 Reasons I'm a Dork meme. Thanks and I didn't even get you anything. :p I know I'm a dork in many more ways than five, but under this kind of pressure let me see if I can recall some highlights.....

1) I highly doubt there are many folks out there that still are using their baby spoons 33 years later. Obviously they weren't made for that type of long term use since the silver is wearing off. Hey, I like to eat ice cream in small spoonfuls.

2) Much to my mother's dismay I still run from room to room at home. I call it productive use of commercial breaks. On the downside, I'm a bit of a klutz and tend to incure collisions with walls.

3) I've seen the original Star Wars well over 150 times. I now know the film so well, I can leave the room for a prolonged period of time, come back, and know exactly what line of dialogue they are on.

4) My kitchen is a shrine to the Blue M&M. On the brightside, it doesn't talk to me.

5) Given a choice between socializing with friends or staying home and watching a favorite show, the show always wins. Friends I can see anytime, an episode only premieres once!

Ok, now I have to tag five people - writteninstars, raislak, reckleslinguist, k_julia, and lynnb you're it.

On a somewhat related note, I've now watched the first eight episodes of Doctor Who thanks to the generosity of divahag. :-) I have to admit, after episode four I wasn't getting quite what the hubub was about. Sure, it was fun and entertaining, but I didn't see myself getting hooked. Then I saw 'Dalek' and had the 'Oh, damn' moment. :p Even though I found the episode flawed, it got to me emotionally the same way other flawed eps such as 'I, Borg' and 'I was Made to Love you' did. I'll do a more in depth post once I finish the series. And I'll try to catch up on some of your thoughts too.

On an unrelated note, we had a baby boom at work today. Both a co-worker, Darcy, and my friend, Robin, went into labor this afternoon. Hopefully, we'll have word on the babies tomorrow. :)

A dork proof!?! but... but... I'm not a do.... oh wait I just saw my icon.

Alright, the gauntlet has been thrown.
Another one falls to Dr. Who. I haven't started watching any of my new shows yet!

Thanks and I didn't even get you anything

To make it up to you, I'm making Lee/Laura icons.

Wheeeeee!!! Have I told you lately that I love you? =)

I can't say that my enjoyment of 'Dr Who' has reached BSG or 'House' obsession levels (it's just not as well written, imho), but it is good and I really like this incarnation of The Doctor. It also made me think about what a wealth of good sci-fi we have right now...more so with 'Andromeda' being, mercifully, over. :)
Thankee. :-)

Dang, I should have made you the sixth person tagged. We could see if the fan letter made your top five? ;)

This? Is so me. When I say that I walked into a door, that's what happened, because I missed the handle and walked on anyway. *g*
Hee! I just looked at your five. It's nice to know I'm not alone. Plus, it's a good way to burn calories. ;)
Wow. The Star Wars thing is impressive. And I don't mean that sarcastically. Which, I suppose, shows you how much of a dork I am. As if you didn't already know.

Also, I keep meaning to tell you that the minute I saw those Lee/Laura promo pics, I thought of you. :D

Hmmmm, I just don't know why people so associate me with those two. ;)
Ya got me!

I love your M&M's shrine - can I use that as one of my five? :)
Doctor Who
Everyone is getting to see the new Who except me. Big DW withdrawl moment from a big Doctor Who fan. sigh.
Re: Doctor Who
I know a lot of people who want to see it who haven't been able to. I'm not even a fan, but it being sci-fi and seeming to hoave received a lot of praise I was curious and, fortunately, had a friend with downloading and burning skills.

I really am shocked that the show has yet to find a venue to be shown here. It seems like something Sci-Fi would jump on unless the BBC was asking too much.
What's on in 15 days? ;p

Finally I have something that people can be envious of!
i love your list. i knew you were a dork. glad to have you back.

anyway, i'm happy you're liking the dr who. the series grew on me as well. got better and better imo.

according to dreamwatch, scifi saw the show and passed. stupid stupid scifi. this i believe has been established.

oh! i saw bones. it wasn't bad. sorta typical of that sort of show: fbi agent works with anthropologist to solve crimes. the big groan moment came at the end of the show when david's character said (basically) that his goal was to save as many lives as he'd taken (he used to be a sniper. as opposed to, say, a vampire). it's just so dang milquetoast after angel. why go that route? i preferred him snarky and cocky to redemptive. ack.

anyway. feel free to pass on the dr who disks to whoever. or keep them. they're yours.
