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.

My aunt celebrates her birthday around this time and she hates it. Everyone is so busy with the holidays that most often than not, her birthday ends up being forgotten.

I still havent caught up with all the old Dr Who seasons, so I havent seen Adric yet, but Im TOTALLY in love with the 10th Dr (David Tennant) and have watched every episode he's been in at least twice..Im sure I would act a wee bit silly too if I ever met him in person, lol

Birthdays near or on Christmas are always a pain. But I survived it... we all do. :-)

Dr. Who is awesome. I love David Tennant in the newer versions. We have some of the older ones on dvd just to watch for fun.
