That's right. My dog is a lion. Be jealous.

Halloween night. Passing out candy to some extremely unhappy children.

The Best Time to Wear a Striped Sweater

Is all the time. 

 Mak and Fizz are so tight, they even sleep the same way.

Lots of Doctor Who fanaticism going on lately. Me gusta. I'm definitely a Whovian. I'm also a Lostie, a Cumberbitch, a witch and a Grobanite.

Fall In the Woods

Fizz does like to go here. It's quite pretty during the fall. Though very loud when you're walking because all of the leaves make fun crunching noises. Sort of deafening. It always reminds me of The Hunger Games when Katniss and Peeta are walking through the forest and he is so obnoxiously loud, she has to convince him to stay behind. That would be me. Very loud. I'd be killed first, no doubt.

Some editing fun.
Thanks, bud. 
 Also, my cats are really cute.

I've always claimed Autumn was my least favorite season. And that opinion stands true for a number of reasons, but you can't deny how absolutely brilliant some of the colors are. I guess living in a place like WV, you get to see it all clumped together, up close, and in your face. If I lived in a city, that just wouldn't be possible. But I drive home and ahead of me is this great mountain speckled red, orange, yellow, and green. It's fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And for that, Autumn is amazing. But it's also cold. I'm a heat person. Actually, that's a lie. I'm a 72 degrees and sunny person. With a bit of wind. But that happens once, maybe twice if I'm lucky, day a year. 

Also, Hanna Cross and I are friends.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Reading the fourth Harry Potter book using Cassie and my.... my's.... our number from the science project that we completely BSed.

I look oddly pale... I shouldn't be shocked, but I am.

Indian Burial Mound

Sort of just reminds me of a Scooby-Doo episode where some pretentious construction workers dig up a burial site, then Native American ghosts attack them. Alas, twas not the case here.

"Favorite way to say red wines in a German accent?!"
"Oh, just in a cupboard under some stairs."

 Red vines.

Rose Tyler

Planet Earth. This is where I was born and this is where I died. 

The first 19 years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all. Not ever. And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end. That's what I thought. But then came the army of ghosts. Then came Torchwood and the war. And that's when it all ended.

This is the story of how I died.

I relate with a lot of fictional characters, but Rose Tyler is the epitome of what I consider a relatable character. Funny, daring, truthful. If there's one thing that's a real turn off for a show, it's when all the characters are too dramatic, too unreal, too fake. Nothing distances a person more than being incapable to relate.

Single Father

Losing all respect for Dave. But he's still as adorable as anything! n_n

Tree Searching

Today I took a hike to find some nice trees for a photography project of Taneisha's. 

I wouldn't go so far as to say I prefer solitude over being with other people, but I definitely like it. I can barely go a day where, if I don't catch a break and spend some alone time, I begin to go insane. This partially stems from the fact that most people are insufferably egocentric. That includes me, of course. I'm probably the worst of the batch. Just useless information no one's going to read. Cheers!

Today is spirit day So I hope everyone wore purple. I made these cupcakes, even if I am the only one in my house who knows about it/gives a crap/agrees. They're delicious. What can I say?

I couldn't let the Lostie part of me resist. So...

Look! It's an Oceanic cupcake! :D
I know... shocking. Also awesome.
Like a boss.

Autumnal Disease

I have it. That delicious desire to step outside just to feel something different from the everyday heat? Yeah. That's it.

Hope everyone wears purple tomorrow. I will. Even if no one sees me.

Amelia Pond

I liked Amy Pond from the very beginning. Though, I'm biased; she is a redhead. :)

The real Amy Pond:

On a whim I got everything I'd need for an Amy Pond costume. Like a boss.

We Backed the Wrong Side!

Oreos and a Dog

I originally took this picture for Cassie who asked me if I had Oreos. I told her yes and then I added I also had a puppy. Even if he does smell like skunk a bit.

Today I convinced Fizz to hop in the car with me. We were going to drive up and take some pictures, but that adventure got shot straight to hell when there were people golfing. I mean, who golfs in this beautiful weather? Tsk. 

Regardless, I was able to get Fizz in the car, which was an accomplishment in itself.

I need to talk about Single Father. It's this new mini-series on BBC One with David Tennant. (Oh, I do love him.) It's about him (Dave Tyler, ironically) and his wife (Rita) and his 4 (maybe 5) kids. He has 4 kids, right? But there's also this other girl. At first I thought she was just faux-adopted or something, but then she said something about Rita being her real mum and he's not her real dad so I was like "Oh, all right. So Rita had her with another bloke and Dave's her step-dad." But then I was listening to an interview with DT and... I don't remember who now. And David said something about her being his granddaughter? I'm so confused. Whatever. Either way, Rita dies (hit by a police car while on her bike) and it's the story about he and the kids cope with her death. He makes, quite honestly, the most adorable father ever. Plus, he's a photographer! Even better. And he rides a motorcycle. And he cries like a baby. 

That was only the first episode. I've got to wait until next Sunday to see the next one, so 'til then I shall wallow in past episodes of Doctor Who.
