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

The Day I Met Twelve, Amy, and a Weeping Angel

This is the second consecutive day without being on the treadmill or watching Doctor Who, but it was so worth it. My wife and I spent the day at Florida Supercon, where I started off by meeting the original Weeping Angel, Sarah Louise Madison. That's her autograph on the right. She was incredibly nice. Next I met the Twelfth Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, and he was just the most spectacularly kind person. He seemed genuinely impressed with this project, and even took one of my business cards. Not that I imagine he will ever look at this website, but he was just so freaking cool and supportive. My last autograph of the day was Miss Amelia Pond, Karen Gillan. It took nearly three hours of standing and waiting, but it was worth it. She was very nice, and wished me luck and encouragement. As for my dear, sainted wife - she went above and beyond today with her patience in my geekiness. She's the real treasure in all of this.

Tomorrow, I will be back at it with The Dæmons. I'll see you then!

Just noticed you misspelled Mr. Capaldi's name. But you probably have better things to worry about today.

Who isn't [afraid]? But you've still got to face your beast anyway.

History was saying to you, look, I've got some examples of fascism here for you to look at. No? Fundamentalism? No? Oh, okay, you carry on.

The thing is, World War Three. What do you think? Basically, we're against it.

Failing that, I think I've got some spare eyes somewhere. They're from a lizard, but I'm sure they'll fit.

There's a haunted house and woodlice from space. And lots of young people get eaten.

So the Tardis has dresses and likes a bit of trouble? Yeah, I think I'm low-key in love with her.
