Today my GPS stopped working while I was driving somewhere where I didn’t know where I was - It was much akin to when Obi Wan told Luke to ignore the X-Wing’s instrument panel and trust his feelings, except instead of destroying the Death Star I ended up driving down a dead end street and having to pull up someone’s driveway to turn around with them staring at me through the curtains while I frantically mimed apologies.
Me: Alright, gotta go to Lowes. Inner child: Arghh, Lowes is rubbish but OH MAN THEY HAVE CHRISTMAS STUFF RIGHT NOW Me: Yes, but we’ve already got too much. Inner child: You’re elderly. oh MAN LET’S GET DRIVE THROUGH Me: No, no - I’m too chubby. Got to lose weight. Inner child: I don’t. Me: I know, you’re just my inner dialogue. Inner child: YOU’RE just an inner dialogue. Me: That doesn’t even make sense. Inner child: YOU don’t even make sense. Me: For christ’s sake. Inner child: Fine, go to idiot Lowes. I’m playing Playstation. Me: Crap, now I want to play Playstation. Inner child: You can’t, you’ve got to do elderly grown up things. Me: I’m going to leave you in the car with the windows up. Inner child: MUM HE SAID HE’S GOING TO LEAVE ME IN THE CAR WITH THE WINDOWS UP.
argh, dude… I was rebuilding the TARDIS for the first time since moving house and the weather hadn’t been kind to it, half way through regeneration and the rotten wood shows itself and the whole thing falls apart I was inside tightening screws when the creaking began, got out in the nick of time!
I can rebuild her - I have the power (well, some), I have the technology (very little - but I’ve got a screwdriver!). Salvaging parts right now - I’ve been wanting to build the facade for inside the house for some time - looks like this is the opportunity! New full TARDIS at the start of the new year. That’s the plan :)
