Twenty-four Letters and a Dr. Who

I’ve been doing a few new things I love lately. I’m participating in Mary Robinette Kowal‘s A Month of Letters. Each day the mail runs this month, I’m sending something through it. Or rather, I’m trying to. I’ve already missed the mailman a few times and had to double up the next day. I’ll blog more about writing letters later, but for now, I better just write them.

The other new thing is Dr. Who Wednesdays with my friend, Honor, and her sweet, neat, squeeze-your-feet toddler boy, Callum. (My godson!) Every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., we gather on Honor’s couch with a plateful of scrumptious lunch and watch an episode of Dr. Who before I have to go get in the car line at Eva’s school. Honor has already seen all the episodes, but Cal and I have not (and he seemed pretty psyched about the cuddly, electrified-Michelin-Man aliens on screen yesterday). I’ve been meaning to watch the show for a while, and Honor came up with this great idea. (I’m not convinced Cal cares as much about The Doctor, but he seems to like the lunch part quite a bit.) We’ve been having a great time, and I’m so glad Honor is attempting such a massive undertaking with me. We aim to watch it all. (The new Whos, that is. Not the old ones.)

Cal may be dating by the time we’re done, but I guess we can always make room on the couch.
