Media diet: I've been watching Red Dwarf again. Bite me.

I have the Red Dwarf theme song stuck in my head and it's Himself's fault. The Red Dwarf 3 and 4 4-DVD boxed set will be officially released on 3 February, but we're waiting to buy them since it's $50 new. (We we got the 1&2 set for $30 last year by buying from an Amazon Marketplace seller.)
It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere
I'm all alone, more or less
Let me fly far away from here
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun

I want to lie shipwrecked and comatose
Drinking fresh mango juice,
Goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun
If anyone gets a wild hair up their arse to contribute to my metal wind-up toy collection, I'm lusting after the limited edition clockwork Dalek from the BBC AmericaShop. Exterminate... exterminate...

Don't you wish you had a door that looked like the TARDIS?

karaksindru and I were talking about Doctor Who (no good reason, we're just geeks) and he mentioned he wished he had a TARDIS. Of course, I then thought about making a full-size model of a police box, but the cost is prohibitive on my nonexistent budget. We finally settled on faux-painting a hollow-core door to look like one side of the TARDIS and installing it in place of his current bedroom door.

If I make this happen, it might be the single biggest interior design change to jaehop since Karak became the landlord.

My inner gay man is going to kill me for such an appalling lack of taste, but my inner geek is about to explode from joy. My muse just wants another drink and a lot more paint. And I have no idea what the hell I'm doing, but that's normal for me.

EDIT, 0430: I have slightly more clue of how to go about making Karak's TARDIS-door thanks to The Blue Box Project, PoliceBoxes.com amd Rob's 3D Doctor Who Images. Thank you, Google.

Mandatory family reunion briefings, heh.

I picked this out of a friend's weblog entry because it reminded me of the Shady J FSC postal-mailing me over halfway through Himself's desert trip to tell me I could get some free services on base. It was swell they got through the paperwork he'd filed three months earlier, but they obviously didn't look at my mailing address. I wasn't going drive 38 hours from Colorado for free babysitting. *snerk*
I got a second email from our Family Support Group saying it's *mandatory* for us to attend "family reunion briefings" this month. . . . What are they going to do to me if I don't go? Not give me any support anymore? Gee, not that they've given me any yet. I'm not going. What are they going to tell me that I don't already know? This is not the first deployment we've been through. I don't relish the idea of sitting around with a bunch of stupid military wives and their screaming children, only to hear stuff that I already knew. . . .

Purchase: Dream Theater, Paramount Theatre (Denver), 11 March.

After Himself remarked a few weeks ago that the only two bands he *must* see live in his lifetime are Rollins Band and Dream Theater, the upcoming tickets sidebar in this week's Friday Post plugged Dream Theater coming to Denver in March with tickets going on sale at 1000 31 Jan.

15 minutes of searching for tickets until the lower price brackets opened up and $79.25 later (kenwestervelt, those were $29.50 each before Ticketmaster charges), tickets for balcony center, row H, seats 12-13 will be shipped to him.

fulvius, he'd like to take you on the second ticket. Give us a call.
