 I'ma going to state first: I am an incredible idiot.

Why?

For practically cutting my workout cold turkey for almost two weeks ,because I didn't think having the proper food to keep the calorie burn up would work. Looking back I should have done something small at least. Light Yoga, or stretching. Nope. I was inflicted with Cousin Fred and wrote off working out because, well, any female can explain it to you. Then, I had a geek binge and bought Pokemon SoulSilver and the new Ace Attourney game with Miles Edgeworth for the DS. There went my epic grocery list getting cut down to essentials.

No matter, I said, for Monday I will start the week anew and get back on schedule. HAH.

Turns out I didn't need an alarm clock this morning, because Nasa thoughtfully took care of that for me. )

 Over the last couple months I have been slowly (oh, so so slowly) watching Doctor Who from its very beginning. I'm talking Doctor One here. 

Anyway, keeping in mind this is 1963, a TV show and British SciFi, I have been loving it! William Hartnell plays the very "Get off my lawn!" old man Doctor, but there's a twinkle in his eye you can't help falling in love with.

Isn't that so like the Doctor?

My favorite bit about watching these old episodes is playing "Find the String" or, sit and giggle at the model making and inventive ways to make something "other"

This clip. This precious, glorious clip, summarizes what makes Early Classic Who so worth it.  Just watch up to about 02:18:00 (it's about six minutes long in total as it's the last section of the full episode) that's all I've gotten to so far.

Pay attention to 01:13:00 for DW Monster Craft at its finest, and then at 01:52:00 ... I don't need to explain why.

It's too amazing.



I hope you're laughing, because I was fucking wetting myself when the Brains in Jars started SCREAMING their eye stalks off. *wipes tear* Oh, Doctor Who. I love you so much.
