Happy Birthday Matthew Waterhouse!
OK, I'll bet you're thinking, who the heck is Matthew Waterhouse??? When I was a kid there was a British science fiction show called Doctor Who on PBS, Matthew Waterhouse played a character called Adric. I was totally madly in love with him back then! Well, I was only maybe 10 or 12 years old, sort of a first crush thing I guess...anyway I met him back in 2003 at a convention he attended as a celebrity guest (the first Dr Who con I'd ever been to!), here's a couple pics. (I still haven't figured out how to get the pics where I want them, I meant for them to be below this text block! I see other blogs with text between pics all the time and I haven't figured it out yet....)
That's me with him in the bottom pic and my daughter (then 12, now 17) with him in the top pic. I kept pinching him when it was my turn for the pic (probably thinking "OMG somebody pinch me!"), I probably gave the poor guy a bruise! When I tried to say hi to him it came out "hello dear", afterwards I was like, OMG I made an idiot of myself! Anyway I just remembered it's his birthday today so I thought I'd post about it.
I wonder how he feels about his birthday being so close to Christmas? I've heard some people don't like it, I heard of one guy who celebrates his birthday in June instead.
