I love that noise!


River Song: Use the stabilizers!

The Doctor: It doesn’t have stabilizers

River Song: The blue switches! ! 

The Doctor: The blue ones don’t do anything, they’re just… blue!

River Song: Yes they’re blue: they’re the blue stabilizers! [presses the button and the TARDIS indeed stabilizes] See?

The Doctor: Yeah? Well, it’s boring now, isn’t it? They’re boring-ers! They’re blue… boring-ers!

Amy: Doctor, how come she can fly the TARDIS?

The Doctor: You call that flying the TARDIS? [scoffs] Ha!

River Song: Okay, I’ve mapped the probability vectors, done a fold back on the temporal isometrics, charted the ship to its destination and… [presses a button, the cloister bell clangs] parked us right alongside.

The Doctor: Parked us? But we haven’t landed!

River Song: Of course we’ve landed; I just landed her.

The Doctor: But it didn’t make the noise.

River Song: What noise?

The Doctor: You know, the… [does an impression of the TARDIS materialization sound]

River Song: It’s not supposed to make that noise. You leave the brakes on.

The Doctor: Yes, well, it’s a brilliant noise. I love that noise.

The Encyclopedia Galactica defines a robot as a mechanical apparatus designed to do the work of a man.

The marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation defines a robot as “Your Plastic Pal Who’s Fun to Be With”.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy defines the marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetic Corporation as “a bunch of mindless jerks who’ll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes”

“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“And freezing.”
“Is it?”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”

Inky: It has been snowing since this morning and the mountain across the way looks as if it’s been dusted with confectioner’s sugar.  It’s just the beginning according to the weather station, it’s suppose to snow through Thursday.

Still, there is a fire popping and crackling in this tiny cabin, and hot coffee steaming by my elbow with homemade chili and fresh baked cornbread on the menu tonight….

…so no worries except, who’s bringing the dessert?

Early days..


Inky: Its been a rush, a run about, and an eye opener this beginning mountain experience.   So far no two days are alike and every morning brings a new weather challenge.  The people are exceptionally nice and the lifestyle is very laid back.  The mountains look like Christmas trees dotted with winking Christmas lights at night so beautiful.

I’m liking it …

… no bigfoot visits yet, but I’ll keep an eye out!
