Oh No December

I intended to make another attempt to do a post a day in December. Last year was unsuccessful but, hey, I tried. ALAS, it is 2020, so I missed the fact that December started yesterday. Well done me. This year, well, everyone knows about this year. It started in March, lasted approximately three decades, and…

So You Want To Start A Podcast

There are hundreds of articles about starting podcasting online, full of helpful and relevant advice. Is this one of them? Uh, maybe. Sort of. I guess. I mean, why not? I have experience though! It's coming up to Verity!'s seventh birthday (how??!) (also, you can enter our seventh anniversary giveaway!), and Hammer House of Podcast's…

Sunday Is A Day For Very Little Blogging

So here's a lovely mosaic of pics of the best of all Doctor Who companions. Also Ian is there. It has been A Bit of A Week, but having a lovely Verity! podcast recording last night really helped lift my mood. (Also we are almost seven years old now! And doing a competition to celebrate:…

A Haphazard Splurge Concerning Last Night’s Ghastliness ie the General Election

Things I Would Do If I Was Falling Into A Black Hole

PANIC. Stretch. Lots of stretching. Like gum. Or spaghetti. An infinitely long piece of human spaghetti. Call for help. Then remember that sounds doesn't travel in a vaccum. Consider how neat that Stargate episode is, where a black hole attaches to the Stargate and tries to such the Earth through. Remind myself that Romulans use…

Five Brilliant Odo Moments in Deep Space Nine

I always find it a bit weird to be so saddened by the death of someone I don't know, even though it makes perfect sense: just because you don't know someone doesn't mean they can't affect your life, bring you joy, inspire you, give you comfort. They're still a part of your life, and when…
