I’m really disappointed with how this whole fidget spinner craze turned out. I was hoping that it would make it easier for people who needed them to get them at local stores at good prices, but that’s not what’s happening.
The kid across the street that my sister and I babysit is really upset right now because he got one last year for his ADHD, but now they’ve been banned at his school. Kids are buying them and using them like toys, doing tricks with them and just being disruptive. So now the kids who actually need to use them to concentrate aren’t allowed to have them at all because they think it would be unfair for certain kids to have “toys” and ban them for everyone else.
I should have known this was how it was going to turn out when someone at work pointed out that the one I’ve been using for awhile was “the hottest new kids toy” and didn’t believe me when I told him it was a tool and not something I use just for fun.
Okay hear me out but why are almost all of the DW companion’s parents either at least half dead or MIA
Because I’m all about representation so whERE ARE THE PARENTS
Like okay we’ll start with Rose (classic who would take way too long)
So Rose’s dad - dead, hit by a car
Jack - doesn’t really count he’s too old to have parents
Martha - both parents intact, well done RTD
Donna - God knows where her dad was, but we had Wilfred so all is good in the world - but still(!) no father
Amy - parents got eaten by a hole so she forgot about them, still MIA, eventually do come back
Rory - Brian Brian Brian Brian. Brian is the best I love Brian.
Clara - dead mother
Bill - dead mother, dad MIA
Do we, as watchers of the show, just like the vulnerability of loss, or do they just use it on the show as a plot point (Amy, Rose, kind of Clara, probably Bill at some point). But seriously the chances of the Doctor pretty much always finding someone who’s parent/s are gone is pretty slim. Like these companions are in their 20’s, not many people lose their parents when they’re that young. I get that a lot of people are from single parent homes but still.
hey i’m sick of a culture which tells little kids they should be ‘doing the do’ at ridiculous ages and then is shocked when they have a nude photos scandal or get pregnant or get hurt by adults or older kids or kids their age or younger kids, and i’m even MORE sick of doctors and parents who think the only solution is MORE CONTRACEPTIVE YOUNGER, rather than, i dunno, TELLING KIDS NOT TO HAVE SEX UNTIL THEY’RE READY AND NOT SHAMING THEM FOR NOT BEING READY FOR A LONG TIME
guys I am so serious but I have no idea what just happened and I am having real, physical difficulty typing rn because my whole body is shaking? like, okay, so this thing flew over head that woke me up, I guess it just sounded like a regular aircraft but kind of low, and then there was this burning heavy pressure and it made the back of my eyelids go white (even though I was in a dark room with my eyes shut hang on of course I had my eyes shut oh well) but I am not making this up and it felt like I was, idk, being microwaved or fucking something and I was like ‘well this is how I die’ but it went but I felt…. just awful, after, and I still do but the main thing is my hands? are shaking so badly I cannot describe how much I am kinda of not okay
also this is like, 7:17am in the uk it just happened in like the last half hour? anyone else?
EDIT: okay so my friend on skype is an angel and talked to me about normal shit and now I have stopped shaking and feel better, I really hope it was aliens because dude that would be sweet but I’ll talk to my two-doctors-who-are-also-my-parents about it and see if I need to see an actual GP, sorry for wigging you out but I literally kinda felt like I was? dying? for a bit there. oops
Edit edit: sooo I might have had a seizure, going to see the doctor later today, whelp. Really sorry for scaring you but bloody hell I never want that again.
Happy Birthday David Tennant born in Bathgate, April 18th 1971.
Born David McDonald, he was brought up in Bathgate and Ralston and he knew from an early age he wanted to be an actor, at the age of three, Tennant told his parents that he wanted to become an actor because he was a fan of Doctor Who. His parents were very religious people and tried to discourage him but he himself admits to being “absurdly single minded” in his ambitions, educated at Ralston Primary and Paisley Grammar School. He acted in school productions throughout primary and secondary school
At aged only 11 the respected Scottish actress Edith MacArthur told his parents he would become a successful stage actor, David attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama on saturdays and passed an audition age 16 to enter the academy as one of its youngest students. From there he took several stage roles at Dundee Repertory Theatre.
His first big break came in 1994 when he was cast in a lead role in the Scottish drama ‘Takin’ Over the Asylum’. He then moved to London where his career thrived and, most notably, he spent several years as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and took lead roles in the critically acclaimed TV dramas 'Blackpool’ and 'Casanova’ and of course the role which catapulted him into “stardom” as Doctor Who.
Since leaving Doctor Who in 2010 his career has gone from strength to strength, with lead roles in films such as Fright Night, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend Of Fritton’s Gold and in TV series including Spies of Warsaw and the very popular Broadchurch which has just finished it’s third run on ITV. Tennant still treads the board regularly, as well as being in demand for films and TV work, he is married to Georgia Moffett who he met when they co-starred in Doctor Who, her father is actor Peter Davison who took was also Doctor Who in the 70’s!
