Hi there to my dedicated group of 16 or so readers. I realised something this morning that I thought I should share: I’m getting about as bad at blog posting as the seasons of Sherlock are becoming… highly irregular. Hopefully, like Sherlock, once my posts do come they are complete and well-formed, preferably with no long list of drugs involved.
So, here’s my year in review: I did stuff last year. Stuff that wasn’t always running stuff. Went places, did various activities, ate, slept. Outside of that I attempted to figure out my small child who has a very interesting mind. Take for instance yesterday. Yesterday was my birthday and, according to the candles he insisted I buy, I am 3,658 years old.
That’s right people, it’s time to come clean: I am a Time Lord.
Also, yesterday wasn’t actually MY birthday. It was OUR birthday, I needed to share it with him. Except, when he was asked, we weren’t sharing, it was his birthday. Most importantly, he had all rights to the birthday cake… and the orange number 6 of the 3,658 years old that I am.
Funny thing is his actual birthday, in my opinion, falls in a far better time. Stuff, for instance, is actually open. If I was a small child in England the number of things closed the moment the holidays end is staggering. Amusement parks? Nope. Some of the local manor houses with awesome playgrounds? Nope. All closed up until February or March. I’m grateful that my younger years were spent in a place with the seasons of “Summer” and “Not Summer.” And that “Not Summer” is defined as two weeks sometime in January.
So, what’s this year for me, now that I’ve just turned 3,658 years old? Perhaps I’ll get the parking brake fixed on the TARDIS, but as that’s never been a priority for me. I’ve got a third marathon to run, which I’ve been properly prepping for and now have to hit the real mileage training. I’ve been learning to crochet granny squares, which I intend to make into a really long scarf (it’s a Time Lord thing). I’m working on attempting to be more creative here and there, and keeping up with my active meditation app. I’m patiently waiting for the new version of the Undress (seriously, if you are female… or male and are totally cool with wearing a dress… and do any form of exercise you need one).
And I’ll probably watch the new movie for Star Wars about 20 or 30 times. All my Star Trek readers I’m hoping you’ll accept me for who I am as I love you despite our differences.
I’ll do my best not to be so hideous in my blogs. To be honest, England still fascinates me and I need to share all the crazy wonderfulness with people.
Here’s to the next 2,721 years until my next re-generation.
