It's all Tori's fault

Yeah. You heard me. Tori. ALL Tori. She did it.

She blogged not too long ago about Dr. Who. If you haven't seen it, then by God, google it and check it out. And what did I do? Well. Crystal just happened to see that it was on Sci-Fi channel, and she decided to watch it.
And I'm hooked.
HOOKED, I tell ya!

Now for the funny part...hehehe.
I have this affinity for British shows. I absolutely love them. The accent. The dry wit. I've always been interested in what the Brits have to offer. And Tori knows dang good and well I go weak in the knees for the accent. (Tori: You're not right. No. Seriously.)
I have an editor who emailed me the other day and asked me if I was British. *blinking* I almost fell out of my chair laughing.
You know...me...hayfield...hick. I sound like sped-up molasses.
I told her the Limeys would clutch their collective hearts and fall over in a faint.
But she says my phrasing has a lot in common with British authors. *beaming* Isn't that awesome?

We've been gone all day, and I'll blog about that tomorrow. I just needed to give credit where credit is due.

Hehe Hi Crystal!! I don't get stuck into TV shows that I will get hooked on. Only one soap opera a day, The Bold and The Beautiful, but if not much is happening, I can skip it and be fine. I once before got caught up in Melrose Place and had to be home on Monday nights until I learned to use the VCR, (never did, had my son set it up) so I rarely watch TV anyways. So i'm not going to be pulled into a show your addicted to now, ROFL

I haven't seen Dr. Who in a long long time. Can't remember it. But you're right, British humor is very dry, very witty. It's fun.

Hah! My work here is done. LOL! Dr. Who is a lot of fun, isn't it? And we must be twins because I love British shows, too. Though I haven't watched BBC America in awhile now because I never know what's on since while my TV Guide is being forwarded to the new address (I put in a change but it's taking forever) it doesn't arrive until Saturday, giving me a mere two days of listings.

And, yes, I'll take the credit. *g*

I used to watch Dr. Who when Tom Baker played the part. He's the only one I can picture in the role. I liked the second and third Blackadders and Fawlty Towers. I have Monty Python's Flying Circus complete on dvd and my favorite The Prisoner on dvd as well.
