Is It Saturday Yet?

Who here is stoked about Saturday. People might asked what is so special about Saturday...ummm September 1st....hmmmmm. It is the season premier of Doctor Who. Here is what we Wholigans will be looking forward to watch for the first episode this season:
Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor

Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter… the Asylum. A planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of their kind, the Doctor and the Ponds must find an escape route. But with Amy and Rory‘s relationship in meltdown, and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it is up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond’s marriage.

Yes , I am constantly called a dork by Mrs.GD. I am proud and embracing watching Docor Who with Aquagirl, but she is only two. I hope that someday she thanks me for exposing her to show like Doctor Who and Firefly.



So do you have any plans for the season premier??

Out and About

I have been being mean to my poor little blog. It has been CRAZZZY this past month or so. I have been SLOWLY making my way though Game of Thrones by George RR Martin. I have my brothers' "wedding" going up next week, in which I will be standing up in on Friday. This is summer, it seems like there is alwys something going on every weekend.

Some other news this is my wife's first week watching kids. We are both happy that she is able to do this now. She was miserable at her job, but now she is able to spend more time with Aquagirl..:))

AudioFiles: The Color of Magic

The Color of Magic (Discworld, #1)Title:The Color of Magic
Author: Terry Pratchett
My rating: Save It

Summary: This title, which launched the legendary Discworld series, introduces the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind. Part of a reissue of the first three Discworld books, this novel includes an overview of the fantasy land, with a map, visitor's guide, and Pratchett crossword puzzle.

My Thoughts
I was ready for a fun read and Terry Pratchett did the trick for me. I have read a couple of his later books, such as The Wee Free Men (Discworld, #30) and that was flipping hilarious. I decided to get back into the series and start from the beginning. Pratchett it seems that is publishing book left and right. You just never know what is going to be around the corner next for our guide.

The only complaint that I have about the book that it is a little slow paced, but yet again what fantasy book isn't slow paced. The author has to bring you into his mad world after all.

In the book,Rincewind as he is unwantingly roped into guiding the clueless tourist Twoflower along with the ever faithful Luggage around the flat, disc-shaped world.The discworld a world balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle, Great A'Tuin. It is interesting to say the least. This is a world where the gods gamble to decide the fates of the world and the ever-present Death, efficiently "collecting" unfortunate souls is one of my favourite characters ever.

I will be checking out the next book of the series.

Olympic Parents



 I have been watching so much of the coverage of the Olympics. This is still a clip that sticks in my head. Just think of all the countless hours and money spent driving your child(ren) to practice and meets and it all comes down to one shot in the big dance.

Would you be excited...HELL YA! Above is a clip of Aly Raisman's parents cheering her on with her routine on the uneven bars. To me this is how parents should be and not be afraid to show thier support for thier child.

I just wonder how much will I embarrass AquaGirl when she starts get more infovoled in extracurricular activities.
