One fat geek's attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill

You know what you can't do in Florida in the summer? Wait nearly two weeks to mow your lawn. Ideally this time of year it should be getting cut twice per week, but between the constant rain and other priorities I went for twelve days without getting it done. It's done now, but... holy cow that was not fun. I think I may need to tune up my mower this weekend as well..

But enough about lawn care, I also watched Doctor Who today, so let's talk about that.

Yes. Yes, it's insane, and it's about to get even more insanerer. Is that a word?

It's been a very long day. I just spent the last seven hours on a video editing project, it's well after midnight, and I need to get to bed. But, because I am stupidly dedicated t this ridiculous project, here I am writing a blog post because I know that you, my imaginary readers, would be sorely disappointed if I didn't.

So let's talk about the sins of the Flesh.

Did You Wish Really Hard?

Did You Wish Really Hard?

True story: A few years ago I built myself a brand new computer, a software development workhorse designed from the ground up to be my dream machine. I ordered all of the custom parts, I constructed her bit by bit, and when it was all done I named her Sexy. I spend more time with her than I do with my wife, and I probably fondle her a bit more than is strictly necessary.

Today's episode of Doctor Who is the reason I named her thus. So let's talk about that.

I Remember It Like It Was Two Days Ago

I Remember It Like It Was Two Days Ago

It seems somehow fitting that, for a story about a foe who disappears from your memory as soon as you don't see them, it would be the very first time in the history of this ridiculous project that I have taken two full days to remember to write up the blog post. Well, I mean, it's not so much that I didn't remember and more that I have been wrapped up in a software release for the last two days and haven't had a spare moment to write. The good news is, my code finally made it to production late last night (or very early this morning, depending on your perspective) so now I have time to get this done.

So let's talk about astronauts, death, treasonous presidents, and Stetsons.

First off, I would like to wish a very happy birthday to Pear Mackie. I missed seeing her in person a few months ago, being busy with a show I was doing, but she was absolutely lovely to my wife. Thank you so much, Ms Mackie, I hope you are having a swell day wherever you happen to be.

As for me, yeah, I watched Doctor Who this morning. Like that's a shock. So let's talk Christmas.

We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I had a lovely, lovely holiday spending most of the day with my wife (we went out to a double feature of Solo and Deadpool 2). After two weeks of focusing on my Fringe show it was nice to get to take a whole day off and do nothing of consequence. Tomorrow I dive back into work, and a week from Sunday I jump into my next show (Xanadu, yay!!)

But yes, I did watch Doctor Who this morning, so let's talk about that.

This is not at all treadmill or Doctor Who related, I just have to say: Last night I had easily the best stage performance of my life at the Orlando Fringe Festival. Sure, it wasn't a massive audience, but who cares? The small crowd who attended all had a great time, and I felt absolutely in the groove for the entire performance. A dozen songs, lots of stories, and a direct connection with everyone in attendance -- it was just sublime. I am about to leave for my final performance of this show, and I couldn't be more proud of what I have achieved in the last year or so. And this ridiculous project? It's a huge part of what has gotten me here. So thank you, my dear Imaginary Readers, for keeping me motivated and moving. I treasure each and every one of you (especially the ones who aren't actually imaginary).

Speaking of imaginary people, let's talk about today's episode of Doctor Who.

Hello Catherine Tate!

Hello Catherine Tate!

This morning I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Catherine Tate, a.k.a. Donna Noble, at MegaCon Orlando. As one would expect, she was absolutely lovely. I got her autograph on my Time Treadmill inspiration poster, and then got this photo with her:

Prior to that, however, I watched the Craig & Sophie episode of Doctor Who, so let's talk about that.
