Blood Candy

This evening, David & I went to FYE. We leave without buying anything, making it so that we have to walk around the line of people at the cash register in order to leave. We came to a sudden stop behind two 10-year-old girls, who in turn were stopped by some groupie-looking teenage girl. One of the 10-year-old girls had what appeared to be a filled hospital blood bag in her hand.

The following is the comment that we overheard while stuck behind these people:

Groupie to Weird Little Girl: You shouldn't get that one. (Referring to the blood bag in her hand.) I was just talking to a friend of mine who tried that kind & she said that it tasted really coppery. But there's the other True Blood kind. That kind tastes better. It's sweet, like oranges. You should get that one.

Weird Little Girl: Oh! Thanks! (Runs away to get tastier blood.)

It was all I could do to keep from gagging. I'm guessing that it's some sort of candy stuff, but that was by far the strangest thing I've heard all week.

Doctor Who

Our most recent television viewing adventure has been spent watching the British sci-fi show, Doctor Who.

This is one of David's favorite shows. He's been wanting to share it with me for quite a while and, until recently, I'd been resisting his efforts. It's too bad that it took me so long to be willing to watch it, because it's actually quite fantastic. Of course, since it airs on BBC One (in Great Britain), we can't watch it but online. Occasionally, BBC America (which we do get) will air reruns, but we mostly just watch it on our laptops anyway.

Doctor Who is currently on season 5 (not counting the older original seasons from back in the '60s). Seasons 2 through 4 star David's favorite actor, David Tennant, who, as you can see here, looks a lot like David. I affectionately refer to his fondness for David Tennant as his "man crush".

My fondness for the show mostly revolves around the fact that I feel like I'm watching my husband be an intergalactic hero. Enough said.
