I've been fangirling so hard over Doctor Who lately. Just last week, I finally got a chance to watch Doctor Who with a fellow Who fan for the first time ever. (Okay, so it was just Time Crash, but it still totally counts.) It was definitely an amazing experience that I hope to have again someday. I also get to introduce the show to a couple of my friends sometime this summer. Neither of them are really into sci-fi, but at least one of them more or less likes things like Star Wars and Star Trek, and I'm not much of a sci-fi fan either, so I think it should go okay.
The most recent exciting news, though, is that I finally got my sonic screwdriver today! I got it a bit late, since the mailman apparently forgot to put the key into our mailbox, so we didn't even know my packages were there until Amazon had updated the shipping status as 'delivered,' so I ended up running out to the mailbox at about 10:30pm to get the thing. But hey, it was totally worth it. The switch is a bit wonky for some reason, so the light and sound effects are somewhat inconsistent, but who cares? That sure hasn't stopped me from sonicing everything in existence all evening. :D
I also got a hold of some old Who today. A few stories came in the mail with my sonic screwdriver, but right now I'm watching a copy of Genesis of the Daleks I got through interlibrary loan. Yep, I'm watching my very first Old Who story right now, and I have to say that I'm loving it! New Who has infinitely better effects, of course, and Ten will probably always be 'my doctor' (he was my first, after all, and part of the reason I got into the show in the first place), but I suspect I'll end up liking both Old Who and New Who pretty equally, albeit in slightly different ways.
Anyway, Genesis of the Daleks is still sitting on pause behind me, so I'd better go back to watching so I can actually get to bed tonight. :D
