Life of a Blogger

    • I hate texting to figure out a plan. What would take a minute over the phone takes way too long in text.
      I can’t stand it. I think it probably has something to do with being allergic to pretty much everything outside. Lol.

    • I just don’t like the taste. I don’t know. I don’t really like any dark sodas (Pepsi, Coke, Dr. Pepper), except root beer. But that’s true! These lists are a great way to see what other people like that you don’t.
      Thanks for checking out my list!

  1. #71 – OMG, yes!
    Also, #56 & 57 – because of the Autons?
    Telemarketers bug the crap out of me. I know it’s their job, so I try to be polite, but seriously – no means NO! Maybe I need to use the line I use with my kids: I said no, and I mean NO, and I don’t want to hear any more about it. I guess that sounds mean, but it does help with #91. 🙂

    • Haha. Yay! Another Sherlock fan! And Whovian! 🙂 I actually hated mannequins before the Autons and before I was a Whovian. I was convinced to start watching DW during 10’s reign, but I started with 9. NONE of my Whovian friends warned me about the Autons even though they knew I hated mannequins. Wasn’t that nice of them?
      Haha. I definitely understand not liking telemarketers. I have a lot of patience for them for some reason, but I might use that line next time!

      • I’ve been a Sherlock Holmes fan for at least 20 years. When Sherlock premiered, I was skeptical, but it is SO good!
        My first episode of Doctor Who was The Wedding of River Song (you can imagine my confusion!), but then we went back to 9 and marathoned on Netflix. 🙂 I’m glad the Autons didn’t turn you off of the show!

        • Yeah, I’ve been a Sherlock Holmes fan since I was a kid. I wasn’t sure at first either but I adore that show. I think they did such a good job modernizing it and the actors are brilliant.
          Haha. That would have been sooo confusing to start with The Wedding of River Song. Glad you went back and watched the rest. I went and watched ALL of the old episodes too. I’m a huge Whovian. 🙂

          • Yeah, it was actually Martin Freeman as Watson that convinced me to give it a go. He seemed so perfect for the role! Have you been watching him in Fargo on FX?
            My whole family are Whovians now! My kids even have Doctor Who pajamas that my mother brought back from a trip to England. 🙂

            • I LOVE Martin Freeman. Oh, man. So much. He’s amazing. I haven’t actually watched Fargo, but I’ve been meaning to. It should be On Demand, so I’ll have to check it out. Is it good?
              Yay! I’ve tried to get my family to watch it. My brother isn’t much of a sci-fi fan, so he won’t like it, but my parents have watched a couple of episodes and liked it. They just don’t have time to watch more. I’ve got several friends into it though! 🙂

              • It’s VERY good! The entire cast is stellar.
                My husband and both kids love it! Plus, my brother-in-law is from Ireland, so he grew up with it, and he and my sister are big fans. They are expecting their first child in October, and I gave them a TARDIS onesie for the baby. 🙂

                • SO CUTE!
                  I have a lot of DW stuff: several coffee mugs (including a TARDIS one), a few shirts (including one I bought in Scotland), a strand of TARDIS lights, and probably more, but I can’t think of it.
