I've had a bit more time to blog lately because I can't seem to stay asleep for more than four or five hours; I'm wide awake and it's not even 2:30 AM. I crashed on the couch absolutely exhausted at around nine, and enjoyed possibly the best dream topic possible: the Tardis. For those of you who aren't familiar with the BBC show Doctor Who, you're really missing out. No woman can resist the charms of time travel with the last Time Lord.

So you can imagine that I was pretty upset when I regained consciousness before 2 AM to the charms of dried out contact lenses and heartburn. Anyway, if you have Netflix, they have a bunch of Doctor Who episodes that you can watch online, so you can become as infatuated with the possibility of exploring the universe in a police call box as I am. Admittedly, I preferred Rose Tyler's adventures with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor to Martha Jones and the David Tennant iteration, but both are just fantastic.

What I'm saying is you must watch Doctor Who. Here's a taste:

You can't tell from just this clip, but the show is incredibly well-written, charming, exciting, and altogether the most delightful show on Earth.
