  1. Heh. That reminds me of a tweet from Warren Ellis the day EoT part 2 aired: Ah, Doctor Who. Hoping the next Doctor doesn’t have his doctorate in FUCKING CRYING. A lot of what I like about Tennant’s Doctor is rooted in the utter ridiculousity of the whole thing though, so I don’t mind so much.

    I’m reminded of who I’ve been quite regularly though. Part of it has to do with having friends whom I’ve known for more than 20 years. We watched each other be complete idiots and then we watched each other grow into a semblance of something mature. We can appreciate each other now like we weren’t able to before. I’ve been told on several occasions by several different people that I’m not who I used to be. As if that was a phrase that was supposed to hurt me. Of course I’m not. I wouldn’t want to be. I’m almost not the person I was yesterday, and I like it that way. If I ever stop learning and growing and changing, I might as well just give up.

  9. Okay, so I’m late to comment. I don’t LJ regularly anymore. Anyway…

    This is a really good point, Michael. It’s something that I’ve been reflecting on because I’m in the middle of a regeneration right now. I don’t know who I’ll be when it finishes, but I do know there’s continuity.

    I hadn’t thought of it in Doctor Who terms, but I think it’s an apt way of describing it. Thanks for the analogy!
