doctor/tardis on top of the world

Merry Christmas!

What a wild ride!

I have been out and about these last few years, doing a crazy number of things---as I'm sure all you have, too. Today, I was having coffee at my stepmother's house when I saw this mug on her shelves--- the monkey mug I had written about so many years ago!

It made me think about this journal and think about all of you. I hope your lives are wonderful. And I wish you all the best holiday season!

OOC: Two Years Gone

It's been a long time since I've come back to this journal. I don't know if anyone reads this anymore. Or if anyone thinks about it. I do, sometimes. The Doctor was such a huge part of my life for a long time. It's strange to think how much has changed.

I graduated college. I started my career. I fell in love. I'm getting married. Lots of life changes. Somewhere in there I ran a 5k, too, which is probably the strangest of them all, but I digress.

Still, I think about Livejournal. A place I loved, and people I called my close friends for so long. I feel like I left in a whirlwind several years ago, when things on LJ changed, and stayed sporadically in DreamWidth, though not really with the Doctor. He belongs here, and deep down I know that.

Anyway. I was just thinking about you all today.

How are you?

You look great by the way.

State of the mun

Please be aware that the mun is going through very extensive training and long hours at work this week, and her tagging will be very limited. I apologize for any delays, things should return to normal soon.
OH NO, D= 2

On the Moor

Running comes easily. It's something he knows, something that's part of him, ever since he first learned to walk. Ever since he first looked into the Untempered Schism. He runs. He runs, and he runs well.

Except over swampy, boggy areas. He doesn't run quite so well there. He does try, of course.

"Run, Sally!" he calls back. And then loses his footing. And falls, face first, onto the wet ground.

OOC: Just so you're aware

My tagging can be spotty at the best of times, but as of tomorrow I am starting an incredibly high courseload and it will be significantly spottier. RP is my hobby of choice and I will be around as much as I can. By that I mean: I'm gonna be around, but I'll be slow! Don't give up on me!

Please don't hesitate to PM or email me (naughtygirlslikepolka AT gmail DOT com) in order to communicate.

OOC: I've been neglectful...

But two of my most beloved companions have passed away recently. Today, the beautiful and wonderful Mary Tamm died after a struggle with cancer. Romana I has been, and most likely always will be, one of my favorite companions. I have followed Mary Tamm's career for a long time and---yeah, this really breaks my heart. I had hoped to fulfill a lifelong dream of meeting Mary at Gallifrey One this coming year, but it was not meant to be.

On 5 June 2012, Caroline John also passed away. I adored Liz Shaw, and she was the inspiration for my own choices in life to become a scientist. I also loved Liz's amazing spin-off show P.R.O.B.E., the grown-up Doctor Who before Torchwood was even a thought in RTD's mind!

I'm so sad to see the heroes of my childhood pass away in recent years. Rest in peace to all of them.
