My mum is a Whovian : Phase 2

I stumbled upon my mother looking at David Tennant on Wikipedia today. Phase 2 has
commenced — infatuation.

Best. Day. Ever!

Today started pretty good anyway, mainly because Piper let me sleep all the way through the night, even if she does get up at 6:00 on the dot every morning. She doesn’t quite get the concept of weekends yet. As an added benefit, though, she’s completely potty-pad trained now. We got her ten-week booster shots this afternoon too, and . . . right, back to the subject. (Remember, guys, they are called ramblings!)

So, anyway, Mum took me and my little sis to supper, then we had to go grocery shopping. So I called up my dad at Walmart, ’cause the Star Trek : Into Darkness DVD was sitting out on the shelf for only $19. He said yes, so I brought my new baby home. Can’t wait to see it!

The day couldn’t get any better, right? Guess again! I was going through the aisles, what suddenly I hear a familiar song. And whaddya know, my favorite song was on — 500 Miles. I listened a little closer, and DAVID TENNANT’S WONDERFUL SCOTTISH ACCENT!!! Needless to say, I fangirled a little bit LOT, and Mum started flipping out, ’cause I was singing it in the middle of the store. But oh well, it was so amazing! And I’m really sorry for the caps, but that’s how excited I was!

So . . . yeah. Great day.

Askdlkihfgsd! Or . . . my mum is a Whovian!

My mum hates sci-fi. Well, not so much hates it, as just doesn’t *get* the whole time travel thing. But she finally broke down, and decided to watch an episode of Doctor Who. She made it through Rose, and I walked into our living room tonight to find her watching The End of the World — all by herself. I didn’t even ask beg her to. So, anyway, we’re seeing definite improvements over last week when she asked if the Doctor had gills! (Really, mum?) Tonight’s episode was the third one she’d watched, (The other being The Girl in the Fireplace.) and of course, I plopped down on the sofa and watched it with her. (I miss me some Nine. Too bad he only had one season.) I know that since she made it through the first one, and watched the second without being asked — she’s hooked. My own mother, hooked on a time travel show — that’s weird. She won’t admit it yet, but she really does like the Doctor and his magic blue box. On another note, she has finally completed all six episodes of Sherlock. I’ve been highly instrumental in bringing that about, too. So, yeah. My mother (and my little sis) is a Whovian — and a Sherlockian. And a dear friend of mine, named Kelly. I got her Sherlocked, but I’m still working on converting her into a Whovian. In the words of Mr David Tennant, “It’s very hard to try to explain Doctor Who, and not sound like a lunatic.” Also, you guys should expect a few very long posts in the next few weeks, so hang in there, and know that I’m doing the best I can! I just wanted to announce to the blogosphere that MY MOM IS A WHOVIAN! Glad I got that out of my system.

Update : Puppy

Thanks to all who suggested names for my puppy. My two sisters and I have narrowed it down to the top three names now. They’re not fandom names, but they’re still cute, anyway. Piper, Charly and Bailey. I’d better hurry up and decide one since I’m getting her on Saturday.

Which one do you like best?

Aaaaaaaand here are some more pictures of my beautiful little girl.

New Puppy Names

Hi guys! Ashli here.

I’m getting a female Shih-Poo puppy in a couple of weeks, and was wondering if some of my lovely followers had any ideas about her name. I’d prefer it to be fandom-themed, but not ridiculous. (example – Cumberbatch the puppy)

Right now I’ve got:

Oswin
Bailey
London
Paige
Kylie
Paisley
Khaki
Paris

Thanks a million!

Nomination for the Leibster Award

I want to start out by saying thank you so incredibly much to Miss Emory (from Freak of Fandom) for nominating me for the Leibster blogging award. Rules dictate that I answer her questions and create some of my own for my nominees. Now as far as I know, this award is meant to promote fandom blogs to other fangirls, to help them find someone who’s as crazy interesting as they are.

So here’s her questions.

State your name, rank, and intention.

Fangirl, fangirl, fun.

What is your favorite quotation?

“I will always be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”

If you could have any fictional character’s life for a day, who would you choose?

That’s a hard one. I’m definitely not going to say Katniss Everdeen. I’d say Oswin Oswald, but then I’d die. I’ll go with Molly Hooper.

How would you handle that life?

Terribly. I’m pretty sure I would wring Sherlock’s neck by the end of the day!

Do you have any fictional crushes? If so, who?

Gonna have to say nope on that one. I respect them, but again, I’m just not that kind of girl.

If you could make any canonical crossover happen between two fictional universes, which ones would you choose?

WhoLock all the way!

Who are three of your heroes? (These ones have to be real people)

Jesus first, definitely. Next would be a toss-up between Whedon, Gatiss, and Moffat. Third would probably have to be Lindsey Stirling, the most amazing dubstep violinist on the planet.

What period of history interests you the most?

Medieval.

If you could fill a swimming pool with any food or drink (other than water), what would you fill it with?

Chocolate milk!

Would you rather live in a library where you can have all the books and movies you want with no late fees, a zoo where all the animals know and love you, or a theater, where you get front-row seats and backstage passes to every play?

Totally the library!

Now for my questions!

If you could meet five fictional characters, who would you pick?

Who is your role model in life?

what fictional character are you most like?

Who are your favorite actors or actresses?

What is your favorite movie/TV show?

Favorite book?

give us a short profile of yourself.

What’s your favorite summer activity?

Tell is a little bit about your blog.

what is your dream job?

And my nominees.

Have a blessed day, guys!

Me

So I guess i should tell you guys a little bit about myself, huh? I am an average teenage girl with waaaay too many fandoms. I am utterly obsessed with all things British. I literally live in the middle of nowhere. I have a pet hedgehog. I love to sketch and write. I am in the middle of writing four different novels. Someday I WILL go to London. I love old things, especially old books, actually, my oldest book is from 1876. I’m a hoarder. I collect odd things like stamps and coins and bottlecaps. I alternately love and hate Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Joss Whedon. I despise bad spelling. I love, laugh and cry with my fictional characters. I have a very hard time finishing projects. I am extremely devoted to “ships”. I have shipped pretty much every fictional character I’ve ever encountered. I ship Gale/Katniss and Sherlolly (Sherlock/Molly). I’m in most of the fandoms, excluding: Harry Potter, Twilight, Merlin, Supernatural, and The X-Files, I am, however in: The Lord of the Rings, the Avengers, BBC Sherlock, BBC Doctor Who, BBC Robin Hood, The Hunger Games, Star Trek, and Stargate. (I think that’s all…) I am a huge supporter of the oxford comma. I am an introvert. I love books. Ya know, that could be considered the understatement of the century! I go to the library and pick out five 600-page novels and finish them in less than a week. My bedroom could pass for a library. I’m not a girly-girl. I honestly can’t decide whether I’m a geek, a nerd or a dork…probably all three! I love to listen to soundtracks and blog. I have self-diagnosed selective OCD (CDO?), which means I can live in a state of utter disaster (which I do half of the time), but HAVE to have my books lined up in perfect series order…and shoelaces, I really freak out when one is untied. I live on coffee and peanut butter. Seriously! I have insomnia…or a really, really good book and inadequate respect for tomorrow, whichever you like. I am a Christian, and proud to be one! I have a thing for Nutella. I think Loki is the coolest thing since sliced bread. My favorite color is green. I want to write for a living when I get a little older. Other than that, there’s not much to say…
