But I want it NOW...

See the shiny TARDIS?

It's mine.

The Woman ordered it a couple of weeks ago, and said it was for me, but I won't actually get it for a long, long time. Until then, I just get to look at it nestled among some of her Doctor Who toys.

Oh yeah...she has a lot of those now.

She also has several plastic TARDISes, but this one is ceramic. And some day--she says not for a long, long time if she gets her way--it's where my remains will rest while I go off onto the next great adventure.

She said she felt a little creepy buying it, but she wanted to get it while it was still available.

In the meantime, I get to enjoy it while I lounge on the desk during work hours. And there's been a lot of those lately. Sometimes 12-14 hours a day.

(Not complaining...we're having fun. Maybe too much fun, because when we get to the final draft of this book, a bunch of stuff will have to be cut because there are some adultish things that need to be toned down.)

((OTOH, there might have to be an R rated version, because honestly? Bouncy things through a cat's eyes is...interesting. And funny.))

I'm also trying to talk the Woman into buying a 2nd ceramic TARDIS because doods...it could hold a TON of crunchy treats.

Well, you know, our Mom is a big Dr Who fan too (the Tom Baker version). So she thinks this is kind of neat really. And don't think too much about that resting place thing either. That's just a future detail.

Not that we want to see you depart anytime soon, glad your mum did some pre-planning for you!

That will be a lovely place for you when your time comes.

Just think of where you'll be able to go in that thing, Max! But of course we mean years and years from now.

Is the ceramic Tardis bigger on the inside than it looks?

that is a freakingly brilliant idea.. on so many different levels..
