And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour."
-William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

The Doctor and I by John Barrowman
When I meet The Doctor
Once I prove my worth
And then I meet The Doctor.
What I’ve waited for since, since birth!
And with all his doctor wisdom
By my looks he won’t be blinded.
Do you think The Doctor is dumb
or like Oods he’s so small minded? No.
He’ll say to me “I see who you truly are, Jack
A man on whom I can rely.”
And that’s how we’ll begin
The Doctor and I.
Once you’re with The Doctor
your whole life will change
‘cos once you’re with The Doctor
you are not estranged.
No mother is not proud of you.
No brother acts ashamed.
And all of Time has to love you
when by The Doctor you’re acclaimed.
And this gift or this curse I have inside
Maybe it lasts don’t know why.
When we are hand in hand
The Doctor and I.
And one day he’ll say to me, “Jack my boy
A man who is so superior
shouldn’t a man who’s so good inside
have a different exterior?
And some folks believe it’s a fantasy
that in you there’s a good man to see
so they’ll appreciate you.
May I de-fabricate you?!”
And no of course that’s not important to me.
“All right why not?” I’ll reply.
Oh what a pair we’ll be
The Doctor and I?
Yes! What a pair we’ll be
The Doctor and…
Unlimited. My future is unlimited
And I’ve just had a vision almost like a prophecy
I know it sounds truly crazy
And true the vision’s hazy
But I swear someday they’ll be
a celebration throughout Time
that’s all to do with me.
And I’ll stand there with The Doctor
feeling things I never felt.
And though I never show it
I’ll be so happy I could melt.
And so it will be for the rest of my life
and I want nothing else ‘til I die.
Held in such high esteem.
When people see me they will scream.
As part of TV’s favourite team
The Doctor and I.
First class example of deus ex machina in philosophy class?
The sonic screwdriver.
I think I’ll like this course.
The most effective pick up line in all of time and space
Friendly reminder that these are all in the same episode

So an advertisement for a new weight pill was airing on the radio a few days ago. I didn’t pay it much attention at first, until the lady speaking said that this new pill will “make the fat fall right off”. Interesting choice of wording there…
There is something of the wolf about you.

I DID IT
my brain still feels like it’s being squished between two rocks, but still.
So my whole plan, since Jessie asked me to give Alex Kingston her poem, was to give one copy to Alex and get one signed so that I could send it to Jessie. I failed at that at the ABC store and wasn’t even sure that the copy I’d given someone to give to her had reached her (which is one annoying anxiety, I can tell you). I also failed when I went on Saturday…they were doing some press thing and didn’t come down to sign things. So I was pretty set on getting this signed last night so that I didn’t have to come in to the city for the rest of the symphony’s run in an attempt to complete my mission.
I went straight to the stage door after the show, me and about fifty, sixty other people. We were soon told that Alex and Mark had left, and that we were wasting our time waiting for them. There was still the possibility that Murray Gold would come out, so a bunch of us stayed. There was also a fair amount of scepticism in the group…we’d gotten there too fast for them to have gotten around us, and there wasn’t another convenient way out. Anyway the short story is that we waited around and played the Fandom Who Waited version of the Hunger Games until there were about 14 of us left and we’d been told that they were actually in the building, but were doing a thing and wouldn’t be out for hours.
They came out at about quarter past eleven and I think they were surprised to see us still there. It was only a quick signing because they were in a rush but they were really nice. Alex asked if we’d enjoyed the show and we said that yes, yes we had, so she said that we’d have to come again at which point I went “I ALREADY HAVE AND I WENT TO THE ABC STORE TO TRY TO MEET YOU D:”, and she asked if I had anything for signing. It turns out that she did get the poem the other day, woo :D Yay for assistants, sorry I ever doubted you. I told her that it was from a friend in America who loves her, and she said that she’d really liked it, and yeah, a good night and a mission completed.
I didn’t manage to get any photos or get anything else signed but that’s ok with me C:
In other news one of the people I was waiting with works at the carnivore unit at the zoo and said that the binturongs had been super annoying that morning. YEAAAAAH BINTURONGS.
British astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore has died, aged 89, his friends and colleagues have said.
Sir Patrick presented the BBC programme The Sky At Night for over 50 years, making him the longest-running host of the same television show ever.
He wrote dozens of books on astronomy and his research was used by the US and the Russians in their space programmes.
Described by one of his close friends as “fearlessly eccentric”, Sir Patrick was notable for his habit of wearing a monocle on screen and his idiosyncratic style.
Sir Patrick presented the first edition of The Sky at Night on 24 April 1957. He last appeared in an episode broadcast on Monday.
Sir Patrick Moore is known to Whovians for his cameo appearance (as himself) in the Eleventh Doctor’s first episode, “The Eleventh Hour.”
