My 48th & The Heavenly Body of the Week: Special B-Day Edition, aka A Very Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey Gallifrey Kinda Day

So, as anyone who read the most recent post before this one (and I'll wait while you scroll down and do that) already knows, I am on a semi-sabbatical of sorts for the fifteen weeks between last week, and the beginning of October. During this time, I will be working on my book (and if you did indeed scroll down earlier, you know all about said book), and not so much on my blog. But hey, I couldn't just walk away altogether, so I will be posting ten posts during this fifteen week semi-sabbatical. Nine of these will be some sort of list or another. Either a top ten or one of my Worst to Best lists. The tenth, or actually, the first, will be this post here. A sort of celebratory birthday post combined with the always fun Heavenly Body of the Week. So let's get on with things, shall we?

Anyhoo, today is my 48th birthday. Well, if you happen to be reading this on the day it was posted, it is my 48th birthday. Otherwise, my 48th birthday was the day I posted this, which, not so incidentally, would be July 2nd, 2015. I know, it's a wibbly wobbly kinda thing. Which brings us to the Heavenly Body of the Week aspect of this ole post. You see, the iconic TV show known as Doctor Who, has been around for more than 50 years now, but it was not until earlier this year that I finally took it upon myself to watch an episode or two or three (or 44 or 57 or whatever). I always knew that I would like the show, possibly even become obsessed with the show, but for some reason or another, I never took it upon myself to watch the damn thing. Well, that has all changed now, and Doctor Who is a show I like, and possibly one with which I have become obsessed. The show has been around only a few years longer than I have, and finally I am catching up. There is still a lot more to catch up on (50 plus years!!?) but I'm working on it. Oh yeah, the Heavenly Body of the Week. In all my rambling, I almost forgot.

So, when one is talking about the planets of the Doctor Who Universe, there are a lot from which to choose. One of these has already been a Heavenly Body of the Week. That was New Earth. Today, on my 48th birthday, I give you the home world of the Time Lords. The grand planet known as Gallifrey. It is the home of The Doctor, and even though it once fell and died, it is just alright these days. Yeah, time travel gets a bit complicated. One could even say it's a wibbly wobbly, timey wimey kinda thing. Trust me, if you are in with The Doctor, that last line was pretty freakin' heee-larious. Gallifrey is a fantastic planet, and a place to be at any time. So there ya'll go. Gallifrey is The Heavenly Body of the Week. Now I have got to go work some more on my book. I mean, I don't want to waste this semi-sabbatical I got going here. I will be back here next week sometime, with a new post (#2 of the 10 aforementioned promised posts during said semi-sabbatical). It'll be a list-type post, so you should look forward to that. Anyhoo, that's it for now gang. See ya 'round the web.

  1. Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a great day and enjoy watching all the Dr. Who. I could never get into Dr. Who but my niece showed me an episode with the angels that freaked me out
