Elisabeth Sladen Gone But Not Forgotten

Non cosmetic Musings ahead….

I’m not entirely sure how old I was when I first seen The Time Warrior. It came out around ’73 and I wasn’t born as of yet. I was probably ten or so when I actually saw it and I can probably, at this point in my geeky existence, recite alot of the parts for you by memory alone.

Actually The Time Warrior isn’t a favorite episode of mine but it was my introduction to Sarah Jane Smith, one of the Doctor’s longest standing companions. It was also to my great joy a Sontaran episode that Sarah Jane became embroiled in because hey, in my youth, alien’s that looked like they had baked potatoes for heads was all kinds of wicked cool.

Sarah Jane was cheeky as hell in some cases but was also very much a boring companion at times, mind you not because of the way Elisabeth played her but because of the way she was written for 1970’s TV.

But I think many people have come to terms with the fact they they were favoring her simply because she accompanied a most beloved and favorite Doctor, the Fourth. It was kinda default that you loved Sarah Jane simply because she was there when the 3rd regenerated and was there again for part of the adventures of the 4th.

Much to delight of fans Sarah Jane returned in 2006 to accompany another most beloved Doctor, Ten. Sarah Jane underwent a bit of a transformation in her old age and she was quite spunky, smart, and well written not that she wasn’t before but she got upgraded so to speak.

Above all else she was played with greatness thanks to Elisabeth Sladen. Her bright smile and her sweet voice made her a joy to watch plus she got to work with the 4th, my absolute hero.

When I was little girl I wanted to be Sarah Jane, all great companion to the 4th thanks to how gorgeous Elisabeth Sladen was.

SARAH JANE SMITH TOM BAKER

With great sadness I wish her a fond goodbye as Elisabeth passed away today, at 63, to cancer.

For fans of Who, I console your geeky heartbreak with some of my own sadness.

A sad day indeed but she lives on in time and space.

William and Kate Perfumes Because We Haven’t Had ENOUGH of the Royal Wedding Yet

William and Kate Perfume 2011

I drove to work in my sister’s car this morning which was horrifying as she doesn’t have Sirius Radio in one of her car’s thus it was a morning of really bad terrestrial radio sans Howard Stern.

My channel surfing had way too much William and Kate for me to digest, it’s too early in the morning to deal with MORE of the damn Royal Wedding.

Please let it be break time?

If it isn’t enough that William and Kate are popping up everywhere perhaps a fragrance mimicking Gwen’s Harajuku Lovers will really tip it over the realms of absurd.

Jump ahead!

    Because I Think Donut and Cupcake Lipgloss Should Be Essential To Your Beauty Diet

    Cupcake Donut Lipgloss

    Cuppycakes, evil little bastards.

    Totally addicted to ‘em!

    Donuts? Not as addicted to ‘em as cupcakes. I think I’m burned out with donuts. My father came to America when he was 21 or 22, started his own bakery, married my mum, had kids, and proceeded to ply us with carbs most our life. Thanks dad, heart you man. So perhaps I’m on donut burn out mode since they were a big part of my youth.

    I do believe that donuts and cupcakes should be a part of the food group but of course, the Surgeon General would NOT agree that’s why Donut and Cupcake Lipgloss should be essential to your beauty diet, calorie and fat free you see!
