Wooo… think I might have done something like this already, several months ago… but you can’t keep a good meme down, so I’ll have a think.
btw, I also had an addiction to the Who novelisations, but managed to shake it off by the time Peter Davison came into view. But be fair, Ian — Mastermind is much harder when you’re in the chair.
I didn’t mind Peter Davidson, but couldn’t bloody stand Colin Baker and all that ‘Trial of a Time Lord’ malarkey.
OK, so I wasn’t in the chair, but he didn’t know that the core of the ice planet Spiridon was made of ice. I mean, come on.
Thanks for tagging me, Ian — have posted my five things over on the pootle and rat blog!
Jeez, Ian, I never thought you’d do it! I thought you were far too grand. Bonnie Writes totally ignored me when I tagged her on it (but I did achieve success with Debra’s 10 year old daughter, such is life).
I can’t believe anyone actually reads those Dr Who books. In fact I didn’t even know there were such things until my girls evolved a C Eccleston followed by Barty Crouch Jr (you know who I mean) even more serious crush —- and they got some of the books on a 3 for 2 offer, read a chapter and never opened them again.
But probably the ones they tried were “modern” compared with the ones you allude to in your post? (said she, desperately).
Maxine, I’m totally up for something that gets me away from the novel! As for all those novelisations, I’ve got shelves full of them. It breaks my heart that I just can’t read them these days, but I like have as many books that I’ve read as possible on the shelf…BTW, they’re mostly Target originals, and I don’t have much past 1989…
Gosh this meme really has worked it’s way around since Sharon J started it.I am particularly impressed by number 5 — seeing as I was in love with the beautiful Danny LaRusso for most of my youth.And — until this very moment I had forgotten about him! I am so fickle!Cx
It’s funny to think that, at the time, the actor who played Danny was in his early fifties or something.
ah hah! this is where it originated!
i don’t really get it, you guys are bloggers and authors, and you still do a five things about me meme!
isn’t it enough that you keep a blog about you, you also need to be specifically numerical about you? 😀
hello, Dr. Ian!
Thanks for your comment, Treespotter. I actually got memed by Debra Hamel, so you can blame her for starting it…
i’m sure we can track it down all the way to Mr. Dawkins.
that’s okay, it allows the selfish me to come out (i’m tagged by Tim).
always a good thing, me.
