A Squee! moment

Being rather unmotivated recently and wanting to just lose myself in something mindless, I've been playing an iPad game called Fairway Solitaire. It's tri-peaks style card game with a golf theme, the idea being that you're trying to leave as few cards on the table as possible (just as in golf, you're trying to get the ball in the hole with as few strokes as possible.

The levels are set up as golf courses, and in general, they have silly names, usually puns, such as "O'Kaye Bayou", "Saul T. Shores", and "Watchya Steppe". I usually don't pay much attention to them - I just go to the next one and start playing.

Yesterday, as I started the next course, I saw that it was named "Noble Rose Run". I thought, "Hey, that's pretty. You know, if this was a DW reference, that's a great way to hit both Rose and Donna," and then continued playing and forgot about it.

This morning, I played a few more courses and moved to the next one, and it was named "Tennant Highlands"!! So, apparently, the first one was a DW reference! I checked back, and the courses between them were "Melody River" and "Woodtorch Royal". There aren't any other pop culture references in the game that I can find, so apparently someone on the game team is a DW fan and got to name some courses. That was just cool to find!

As my only-marginally Whovian husband grouses sometimes, "The Doctor has to stick his ass in everything." Of course, this is the same man who's encouraging me to add the TARDIS lantern to the top of my car and set it so that it activates in time with the brake lights.

LOL So funny!

We once went to an open air theatre and I had to giggle, thinking so this is what a German TARDIS looks like:

I also found a TARDIS in this graffiti:

And I put one on the door to my sleeping room:

"The Doctor has to stick his ass in everything."

It could be worse; just imagine if it were the other way around!
