Doctor Who tropes I’m tired of seeing:
- Strong Sassy Woman™
- Putting blind faith in the Doctor
- Marriage = bickering
- Offensive, inaccurate descriptors when talking about Clara
- The Doctor reminding everyone he’s smarter than them
- Recycling old ideas and playing it off as homage
- Aliens not understanding human customs despite having spent significant time on Earth
The glories of nature. What are men compared to rocks and mountains?
I am crying.
You are awesome, wholockgal! I’m glad we can be friends. : )
I heart you too, my dear differentfacesameman! Big hugs!

SQUEE! I love mint of all types!
Do you want some? I’m serious! I’m still trying to unload all the peppermint from the last time I picked it onto friends (I swear I’m not going to forget it this week, allegoricalrose!), and this is about twice as much. Haha. Without a doubt, my whole family is going to be getting some for Christmas.

Peppermint gets out of control so fast. There is literally a single plant that I don’t kill on sight (unintentionally… I’m quite terrible with plants), and it’s mint…
Seriously! I bought it as one of those little grocery store potted herbs last summer, and now I’m overrun! I’m half convinced that after a nuclear holocaust, mint plants and cockroaches will rule the world.
