Dept. of Catching Up

Keeping it Shallow

I turned 60 on Thursday. I'm still thinking about that. I've always been way too obsessed with mortality, and this made me think about it even more, and about the fact that I flat refuse to think of death as the end. But that's a post for another day. It's too sunny out, and the air's too fall fresh, to go down that rabbit hole.

Today, I'm going to do all my various exercises, something I fell off on doing over the last three days; I'm going to take a lovely shower after that. Then I'm going to dress up (for varying nerd powers of "dress up") and go to my friend Rose's place with BB. We're going to eat pizza, toast each other with not-quite-champagne, and watch the premiere of S09. I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it. It's going to be a better day, by far, than the past few days at work - and again, that's a rabbit hole I intend to avoid. 

I will geek out over Twelve and Clara (and get as much of Clara as I can, since this is her final season.) I will do so among friends and family. I will get rid of the weird phantom headache that's been dogging me for days, and I will have fun. And on Sunday, I'll start thinking about the tattoo I plan to get in the next couple of months. 

There are not many deep thoughts in this post. I'm deliberately keeping it that way. 

Is it Doctor Who time yet?

Oh my lord, I'm so late in responding to people - thanks for calling it brilliant, although I felt anything but brilliant when I typed it out. Heh.

Happy belated birthday!
Enjoy DW!! :D
Another friend of mine just turned 60 this week, and also got a tattoo (eyeliner, so not quite the same I guess, but still!)

A belated thanks for the birthday wishes, and I did enjoy the Who I watched. I also got a Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit Game for my birthday, which I'm looking forward to trying!

60 is the new 20. At least that is what I am telling myself.

Happy official birthday! ;-)

I hope you enjoyed DW, and definitely that the headache has gone! ♥

The headache took a bit longer than I wanted to dissipate, but it did - and Doctor Who was fascinating, if not completely stellar.

Happy birthday!

Your plans sound like good ones. I hope you had a lovely time with friends and enjoyed Doctor Who. I was rather surprised by how much I liked it.

It was pretty enjoyable, wasn't it? I wasn't knocked out completely by the first part, but, since I'm now responding more than a week later, I can tell you that I was extremely impressed with the second part.

Happy 60th! May your new decade be full of wonderful things.

I'll be watching DW tomorrow, and will weigh in with my thoughts Tuesday, probably.

The episode is downloaded and on my iPod. I'll post my reactions when I've had a chance to watch it. : )
