Right, so already slacking in my ADVENTure ramblings. We’ll get to those as we can. To sum it up - Becca is winning, and I am not giving great stuff…Yet.
Yesterday, we were setting up the christmas tree as one should, and were putting the ornaments on it. First we start with the ones from our childhood - the ones that were made by hand from painted yogurt containers with a photo of yourself glued and glittered to it, the creepy cat marionette that forever haunts you but you don’t quite know where it came from, and the Muppets ornament that says “First Christmas - 1978” which begs the question “Wait, wasn’t I born in 1980?”. This is followed by the Star Wars ornaments - The Tie Fighter, the X-wing, the Max Rebo band, and so on. Then you come to the ones that are given to you as gifts from family who seem to think adult ornaments are meant to be snowmen and angels and so on that all say “1st Christmas together” and everyone but you and the mrs goes “aww…so cute”
Then it hits you - Doctor Who is fucking bad ass, I need a TARDIS ornament for my tree!
Alas, searching the internets brings up no such thing. How has this not been done? I mean, we can get any number of Looney Tunes and Mickey Mouse ornaments, or even a King of the Hill ornament. But I’m being told that in the 50+ years since his first regeneration, and no TARDIS ornament exists? I mean, come on! Ever since the new series aired, Christmas has been a focal point of the show (sort of). and I can buy a TARDIS ice bucket if I so choose (rather go for the cookie jar).
So, it has been left up to me to build one. I don’t know how just yet, but with these blueprints stolen from Galifry, my knowledge of construction gleaned from my 8th grade wood shop class, and a complex understanding of time travel, This ornament shall be made.
