Okay, in my growing fandom for Doctor Who came an announcement from one of my favorite TV personalities; Craig Ferguson that he was having a Doctor Who night, an entire episode of his show “The Late Late Show” dedicated to Doctor Who! The excitement grew, as I saw tweets from Mr @CraigyFerg referencing him putting words to the Doctor Who theme. That fateful night was November 17th.
If you know the story or watched the show that night, you know that Craig had an elaborate opening number, where he had added words to the Doctor Who theme, but was told five minutes before the show that they did not have the rights to use the theme music, which of course brought about a fairly hilarious opening segment with the brilliant Mr Ferguson letting out some of his frustration. Well, throughout the show, you heard references to the opening being leaked onto the internet, and finally, after 2 weeks, we have that wonderful leak! Feast your eyes on what should have been the opening to “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on their Doctor Who night, with a cameo of The Doctor himself; Matt Smith!!
Tonight is the first night I’ve spent away from home since Bug’s surgery, and well, its not be completely smooth for me. Ever since her surgery, she’s been a happier baby overall; livelier, more talkative and interactive. It was hard enough for me to leave her this evening the way she was playing and trying to keep my attention, and it broke my heart leaving, but just a bit ago, I couldn’t keep my heart from breaking.
Basically, Bug is refusing to go to sleep without my there. Every noise she hears, she looks at the door and starts saying my name like she expects me to come through the door. I tried talking to her on the phone, and the excitement her had in hearing my voice brought me to tears, because as happy as she was to hear me, and even though she wasn’t going to truly understand, I had to tell her that Daddy wouldn’t be there tonight. Tried telling her goodnight and she told me “No” in her precious fashion. I’d tell her that I love her, and she’d mumble something back, not quit “I love you” but it’s getting closer now that she has the tubes in her ears.
So basically in the upcoming years, I’m screwed when it comes to travel. I’ve managed to deal with her playing with me extra, or doing what she can to keep me at home and from leaving, even chasing me to the door. Once she starts getting out “I love you” or the first time she says “Daddy come home” I’m not sure I’ll be able to stay away. I’m man enough to admit that part of tonight brought me to tears, hearing her on the other side of the phone, knowing she was looking for me and waiting for me to come back, but travelling occasionally is part of it, parents everywhere do it every day. It’s just the difficulty involved, now that’s she’s starting to communicate, was not something I had prepared myself to deal with.
I just came across this thanks to a co-worker, and couldn’t help but share it with the masses. Coming to you from what must be the brilliant minds of FlashRods.com comes to you a 1:18 scale stainless steel Delorean hard drive car! Packing a Seagate 500GB drive, this bad boy comes highly detailed, with an opening hood and doors. Check this guy out here. It’ll set you back $250, but who can deny how cool this would be sitting on your desk, and be an office tool!
For anyone looking to win my heart, this would be a way to do it!
