Curiosity, cause of annihilation of feline species but also only means to human knowledge

Curiosity, cause of annihilation of feline species but also only means to human knowledge

So... I took ten days off. That was weird. After crossing the finish line last Monday, the next day was all prepping to leave on a trip. Then I flew to Las Vegas for work, spent several days running around like a madman (I registered 22,000 steps one day, going back and forth between Aria and Bellagio), then got home a couple days ago and still kind of avoided the treadmill. But this morning I was too antsy to ignore it any longer. This morning I started in on Doctor Who spinoffs.

So let's talk about that.

The Missus and the Ex. Welcome to Every Man's Worst nightmare.

The Missus and the Ex. Welcome to Every Man's Worst nightmare.

In yesterday's post I mentioned that my wife and I had visited Balmoral Castle in Scotland a few years ago. It turns out that I am a moron (shocking, I know!) The place I was thinking of was Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, which is a completely different thing. I was only off by about a hundred miles. Oops.

As for today's viewing, it featured the return of both Sarah Jane Smith and K9. Yay! Let's talk about that.

The Five (But Really Only Four) Doctors

The Five (But Really Only Four) Doctors

Good lord, what a long day. For the past eleven months I have been watching two 25-minute episodes per day, but this morning's viewing was the twentieth anniversary special that is effectively a movie with no breaking point. That meant that I spent a full 102 minutes on the treadmill, walking further than I ever have in a single day. Then I had a full day of work, and then a big birthday party. Aside from being Alexander Hamilton's birthday, today is my wife's birthday (and also my boss' birthday, and also a friend's birthday), plus my own birthday is on Monday. So we had a whole big thing planned for tonight. Unfortunately my wife has the flu and couldn't go out, but we filmed everyone singing to her. After that I had to go back to work to do a software release, and so now here I am at nearly midnight just finally writing this post.

So let's talk about the big twentieth anniversary special.
