As my username might have informed you, I am a huge fan of Doctor Who. I only started watching in April 2010, but when I get into something, I really get into it, and to date I've seen every episode of the new series at least half a dozen times. Although, I both admire and respect the work of all previous Doctors, the Tenth Doctor aka Ten is my Doctor, and Eleven is the only other Doctor I like in an amount even close to how much I like Ten.


When it comes to companions, Rory (current companion of Eleven)and Donna (former companion of Ten) are my favorites. I despise Rose, and despite my choice of username, Amy irritates me sometimes too. But, I still like Amy's character when she isn't throwing herself at the Doctor.

  • Crowd Song: After a show, the rest of the cast of our high school musical went out for burgers.

Not to be outdone, my classmates and I broke into "La Vie Boheme" from RENT, including the singing and dancing on the tables. Management didn't know whether to be impressed or call the cops. The other school left, having been utterly pwned.
