All Grown Up and Going to China!

Remember in Mulan when Mushu says, "My little baby is all grown up and saving China"? Well, I don't know that I will be saving the country, but I am going there! In just 44 days I will be flying off to China for 2 months. I will be taking a Performance Measurements class that is a part of my masters program and I am all at once excited and scared to death. Well, maybe not scared to death, but I am certainly nervous. I am mostly nervous about the class and getting along with my classmates. Many of them are halfway through or finished with their degree and that makes me feel VERY green. Traveling makes me only a little bit nervous. I love adventure and I love to see the world. I can't believe that I have had the incredible experiences that I have, especially when I remember being 19 and thinking that visiting the east coast was the impossible dream. Now I have seen the world and am so excited to see more of it. Adventure is a wonderful thing!

Dr. Who

My roommate Queen Kate recently started hanging out with a pretty cool boy. We like to call him RDS. RDS is fun and witty and he watches Dr. Who. Did I mention that he watches Dr. Who? Who watches Dr. Who?! I remember watching Dr. Who with my family when I was little. I remember Tom Baker(pictured below)the most. I also remember Peter Davison, but just a little bit. We loved the show and I still get a very excited feeling in the pit of my stomach whenever I hear the theme music.

Dr. Who recently came back into my life when I met my friend Nan. Nan is pretty much everything I wish I could be. She is cool and artsy and well versed in all things BBC. Hence, she watches Dr. Who. (When I discovered this, I knew we were meant to be friends) David Tennant is her Doctor of choice.

So, what this all comes down to is that last night RDS came over with the newest episode of Dr. Who in tow. It just aired in Britain on Saturday night and features the new doctor. The new doctor. He is acceptable. But he is no David Tennant.

As I watched Dr. Who sans David Tennant, I realized just how much I love David Tennant. I guess that absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. Have I mentioned that I love David Tennant? Mostly, I decided that I probably shouldn't love some one so much when I have never actually met him and I know for a fact that said person spent time dating Kylie Minogue. You just can't trust that at all. Oh, well.

Musings on Today

The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain, but the snow in Utah is out of control. It is April for heavens sake.

Returning a video to the redbox machine at Walmart would be much easier if I had a husband who would stay in the car so I wouldn't have to park it and turn it off just to pop inside and return the video.

Women used to wear dresses all the time and they looked super classy.

I would rather eat a cupcake than a salad. Unless it is a very good salad.

Flavored water is much easier to drink lots of than normal water.
