Your Funny Face Appeals to Me

Mickey: "What's a horse doing on a spaceship?"
The Doctor: "Mickey, what's pre-revolutionary France doing on a spaceship? Get a little perspective!"

We are quickly approaching the gloomy season here in Chicago, and few things combat six months of gray skies better than a deep, genuine belly-laugh. That said, here are some things that have been giving me a good chuckle lately:

Doctor Who: I'm rewatching the first and second seasons before moving into the newer episodes, and boy howdy, that quote above made me laugh so hard that I backed up the clip to watch it again. Netflix is my source for this particular brand of greatness right now, but I trust that you're resourceful enough to find it elsewhere if you don't already have a subscription.

The Oatmeal: By the time I got to the Juicy Fruit and LEGO memories comics, I could no longer contain my own joy. I had to dash into my brother's room in the middle of the night and force him to choke back laughter with me. I'm not even going to link to those things because I want you to stumble around for yourself for a while.

Hyperbole and a Half: I fell in love with the "Alot" post months ago, but it wasn't until this week that I added the site to my Morning Reads folder in Firefox. Two other favorites thus far: "The God of Cake" and "This Is Why I'll Never Be an Adult."

I've never watched Dr Who. But I always hear good things about it. Mayhaps I'll have to give it a shot.

As for The Oatmeal, they somehow manage to hit it out of the park every single time. It's amazing.

I would most definitely recommend starting at the "beginning" with Christopher Eccleston playing the Doctor. The episodes can be watched independently, for sure, which is what I've been doing for a long time, but they're so much better when watched in the proper order. (Related note: I just typed "proper order" with a British accent ringing through my head because I have watched SO MUCH DOCTOR WHO THIS MONTH. Awesome side effect.)

Oh I love Doctor Who.

#10 will probably always be my favorite but #11 is growing on me. Rose is my favorite companion but Amy is now #2. As much as I enjoy Mickey, Rory is hysterical.

Mickey actually drives me crazy, but that one line redeemed his existence in the show for me. It's hard for me to imagine the show without Rose, but I've seen a little of Amy and am pleasantly surprised. As for the Doctor, I think I'm slightly in love with all of his forms; I haven't seen enough to pick a favorite, though.

Ahhh I LOVE DAVID TENNANT! Matt Smith will never replace him! He's good in his own way...But in comparison...He doesn't measure up to #10. x3
