What the Hell


Yes, I admit it, I'm a geek. I watch shows like Torchwood, Gotham, Fringe,  Supernatural, Vampire Diaries etc. I also like watching old reruns of That Girl, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek, and Battlestar Galactica.

So sue me!

Last week I watched the pilot episode of series 10 of Doctor Who, and the last sentence the Doctor uttered made me think Yes, yes, that's exactly how I feel!  That's how I view life!

The Doctor had to make a decision:  wipe Bill's memory and stay put in a boring teaching job, or go off in the TARDIS and take Bill with him and have marvellous, exciting adventures. He chose the latter and told Bill, "Sometimes TARDIS stands for What the Hell."

In my mind, I elaborated on that sentence. I thought, Why the Hell Not? Why not take chances and live life to the full?

Recently,  I had the opportunity to try out to.be in the PARALLAX Art Fair in London, England.  I go  in July.  How exciting, eh?! It wouldn't have happened if I hadn't thought Why The Hell Not?

And today someone is bringing over two kittens for me to consider adopting.  She is a friend of a friend of a friend who needs to give away the kittens because of asthma.  It may or not work out, but I thought What The Hell! I'm still grieving over Hershey and Rascal, but the kittens might take some of the pain away.

Today I'm also expecting an O.T. to come and assess me for a new wheelchair. I'm trying to get it before I go to England, but it may not be possible. Still, gotta try, right?

On Wednesday I tried the new unicorn frappucino at Starbucks instead of my regular peppermint mocha frappuccino. I thought, What The Hell. Sometimes you just have to live on the edge.

Annie - I have been watching all the Buffy episodes over the last couple of months, having totally missed them the first time around!
So glad to have met you today and happy it looks like it will work out with the cats. Thanks for saying "what the hell" to meeting them. :-)
