U is for Ummm, I might need to seek professional help and stuff about tally marks.

Note:  I’ve been feeling a bit icky.  I woke up at 4 A.M. and wrote this post then fell asleep (out, completely unconscious) until 5:30 P.M.  I just read it.  Warning, I’ve reached a whole new level of crazy.

And there may be more than a few Doctor Who references.

March 31, I sent this Tweet.

By that night, the freaky bees had left.  Well, all but one.  I’m pretty sure that this happened because I’ve been sicker than usual and I haven’t left my house much in the past month (except for ice cream).  Here goes…I have a new friend.

Allow me to introduce you to Winnofred Wasp.  (Winno-fred, like if you say window friend really fast and a little slurry.  I know!  I’m insane so witty.)

I think Winnofred is trying to Ouija me out a message.

I think Winnofred is trying to Ouija me out a message.  She walked on O, K, L…Oh my god, she’s trying to tell me that she’s from Oklahoma!  Me too, Winno!  She’s my Bee-FF.  Ouch. Wait – there’s more…

Winno and I discuss A to Z posts, Sarah and Tommy’s decorating choices (love Sarah Richardson), The Big Bang Theory, and how the 10th Doctor will always be my favorite.

Seriously lady, this is like the 8th Doctor Who episode we've watched today.  Is there anything else on the DVR?"

“Seriously lady, this is like the eighth Doctor Who episode we’ve watched today.  Is there anything else on the DVR?”

Winnofred can get a little judgy.

"Just turn off the TV already.  Jeez lady, you need to get a life."

“Just turn off the TV already.  I’m. Not. Quite. Strong. Enough…UGH!  I’m just going to stand in front of the laser thing and block the remote”

Me:  Winno isn’t being nice.  Now I know why the phrase, “Like poking a hornet’s nest” came about.  She’s also kind of a beotch.

Volker:  Really.  Now you know?  It’s kind of self explanatory.

Me:  (still laughing)  I said bee-otch.  That’s funny.

Volker:  No, it’s not.  Are you running a fever again?

Me:  Are you going to ask about the wasp on our bed?

Volker:  No.  Keep her on your side.

Yesterday, I decided I should take Winno’s advice and leave the house which was perfect because this was happening…

I might have a Doctor Who problem.

I’m a supporter of freaking people out so this is me at the hair salon

Yes, I'm talking into a nano recorder that's inserted into the palm of my hand...and that's not the weirdest thing about this picture.

Then I went home and made, well,  heated up leftovers for dinner.

You want some crazy sprinkled into your chili?

My husband, a non-Whovian, didn’t even bat an eye.  He probably thought I was keeping track of how many random things piss me off during the day and didn’t want to open that can of worms, also, the foil was out of my hair by then so I wasn’t quite as scary looking.

When I went to bed, Winnofred was gone.  I’m no Agatha Christie but I think her work here was finished or she figured out how to escape or she drowned herself in the lake diving in after some necklace…I don’t remember exactly what happened in that episode.

Sag’ hallo zu meinem kleinen Freund!  (sag ha-low zoo mine-em cline-en frow-end)  Say hello to my little friend!  I’m going back to bed now.



  1. I don’t care what anybody says, Fourth Doctor for Life!

    If I did that people would assume I was just keeping tracks of all the drinks I’ve had that day. I’ve done that before.

      I’m not sure what people were assuming about me – no one said a word. They may have been assuming something about drinking, now that I think about it. BTW, that is a brilliant idea!

  2. I drew marks on my arm for the 23rd too, and when one of the other Doctor Who fans in the office saw them he had a bit of a mini freakout, asking me if I had any memory gaps. Huh, not as much of a fan as me, obviously, if he didn’t know it was Impossible Astronaut Day!

      Whovians unite! I know of one other Who fan in Northwest Arkansas and they don’t live with me. I think my husband doesn’t watch it just so he can continue to make fun of me for liking it so much.

  3. OMG, I hate wasps. I would have run out screaming ahead of you when I saw the first one.

      I’m glad! I was a bit worried about non-Whovians being very confused and possibly a little concerned. Who am I kidding, even Whovians would be concerned.

  5. omg, of course the 10th Doctor is the best! (and in the Agatha Christie episode, I think she just woke up? and went to a mental hospital? it’s been a while…) seriously though, that is a lot of wasps. I would probably have moved into a friend’s house…

  6. I love that you just put yourself out there with the tally marks. It is too bad Winnofred couldn’t join you!

  7. Okay, I think I love you! Nano recorder and tally marks, you rock like a rocky thing that rocks, hard. (sorry, I’m no good with analogies)

    It’s Baker (Tom) and Troughton for me. But I am slowly falling in love with Smith. I know, I’m a who whore. :

      Get on Zazzle right now, design an “I’m a Who whore” t-shirt and I’ll immediately buy one!! Best line EVER!

  8. To add to the list of Why I Love the Internet: People love Doctor Who here and are not ashamed to admit they watch episode after episode until their eyes threaten to fall out of their heads. No one in my real life watches it or understands just how wonderful it is.
