This Friday Sci-Fi will start showing the David Tennant Doctor Who with Christmas Invasion and follow that with New Earth so the New Who Review will restart on Saturday. Tell your friends. It’s going to be interesting to see what they cut this time. I am glad that I have seen these episodes in their entirety before this. I think you will like this Doctor. He is a bit of an adjustment but oh boy howdy once he gets going you fall in love with the show all over again. Highlights for me this year were School Reunion, the Girl in the Fireplace, and the last episode. But there were a lot of other good ones in there as well.
I think the Puppet Doctors will be making an appearance at AlbaCon in a couple of weeks. I need to finish #4 again to complete the set. He is the most complicated of the group in some ways however #6 coat gets my hardest piece to recreate. The scarf takes time to do. I think that is what helped sell the last one. First however I need to finish a couple of paper dolls for a challenge/swap.
Pressure is a funny thing. It can motivate or make one want to curl up in a ball. Some pressure is of our own making and other pressures are external and we just have to deal with them. I work pretty well under pressure but there are times that I didn’t feel like I had a rabid pack of deadlines nipping at my heels. Many are of my own making. Then there is the list of “things I will get to eventually”. I have a ton of ideas for stuff but my time becomes filled with things that need to be done NOW which push those things further back in the line-up. Sometimes I have to pull one of these things forward and make it a priority just so I can get it done. I’m getting that feeling that I need to do just that with one thing that has been kicking around in my head.
For the collectors of Muppet Stuff in the group. I have one of the Master Replica Photo Kermit. Having held the real thing in my hands a number of years ago, I am mighty impressed with this both for packaging and the product itself. For a recreation, it is pretty dead on. There are a few differences so that it can not be sold as the real thing but it is as close as most of us are going to get to owning a full-sized Kermit.
I am grateful for Tacky Glue.
