Greetings of the Season



Party tomorrow!

Spent most of today baking goodies: Dalek Droppings, chocolate chip meringue cookies (yes, the ones mentioned in the credits of a John Reid Adams Doctor Who fan video), and the appropriately-themed cake (photos later–I don’t want to spoil the surprise).

Auction items, prizes, books for sale, freebies, the piñata (again, photos later), games, trivia questions, decorations–whew! Party prep is almost done and tomorrow is the big day. I’ll get back to you AFTER recovering from the weekend’s activities.

Party Prep continues…

Long day of party preparations, but it’s coming together nicely. Got out the games — —

— DW Pictionary, Bowling for Daleks, Rocket Darts, Pin-the-Tail-on-K9, Tardis Beanbag Toss, and DW Dominoes. We’ll also have DW Yahtzee available.

And some free puzzles and craft items —

— bookmarks, crosswords and word search puzzles, origami Rockets (Dinosaurs on a Spaceship!), and paper ornaments.

And the costumes and props to borrow for that perfect selfie.


James Corden (Craig Owens from Doctor Who) has a new baby girl,  his third child. So far, none have been named Stormageddon.

On a more personal note, I just watched the “official” trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special (twice, actually) and it was great motivation to work on the Wholiday Party! I have ideas for the piñata and cake, and am eager to put together the auction list, which includes some recently added items.

Dalek Humor?

The thought came to me in the shower and I couldn’t get it out of my head:


Yep, I took that photo in my garage just minutes ago. Here’s a photo with Salvador (Dalek) and friends, hanging out before a previous Guardian party.


More Wholiday Party Prep…

…and this is what you’ll see all week! Yesterday I started decorating (not that my house isn’t ALWAYS full of Doctor Who décor), and today am organizing items for the auction. So far we have Doctor Who stuff, including an autograph from Robert Allsopp:

and a good collection from other genres–even Discworld stickers and stamps:

Looks like Jon and Tom have photo-bombed this pic!

(Psst–Doesn’t the glare on the floor look like a second ghost?)

Wholiday Cakes

Every December the Guardians of Gallifrey have a Doctor Wholiday Party, which usually includes a cake (or other treat) decorated with a DW-inspired theme. Below are pictures of past party delights. Can you guess for what year each was made?
