366 Days A Year

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

This shopkeeper must need help from Doctor Who to live up to his sign.

It's a stunningly beautiful summer day. About 25 degrees, not a cloud in the sky. It makes it easier to notice all the contrails. London is such a busy place that it is impossible to look at the sky without seeing a contrail or ten, some in the process of ...

Belinda invited me to a Doctor Who club meet, my first, where they played every single episode of the Doctor Who 9 series that hadn't yet screened on Australian television. Everything from "The Long Game" to "The Parting of the Ways". What can I say, it rocked. I watch very little ...
