Thanks Jen,
A TimeLord is a being who has the ability to travel within time and space. The Doctor from the BBC TV series "Doctor Who" is a TimeLord.
see Here

This would give you your super-power of #18.

As for #16, I fully appreciate how lucky I am. After 12 years of 16 hour days, I voted with my feet and luckily landed my current
position. I don't get as much pay, but I have restored some average to my life.

When I was 12, I wanted to become either an undertaker, or a taxidermist. Even though those childhood dreams weren't fulfilled, I still "dabble" once in a while....

Hey Sans, I came over from Jen's place. Just saying Hey ya'll (I am from the south)

I would love to have dinner with Steve Martin too, can I come along??? I am a wild a crazy gal and we can get small while using our time Lord powers to Visit King Tut. He's a got a condo made of stone-a you know.

Welcome Mister Gravely, thanks for stopping by. One of my former colleagues dabbled in taxidermy, mostly Owls and other large birds, no humans. Couldn't get the license. I would very much like to visit you at Gravely Manor one day. Would that be OK?

Welcome Mel.
Nice to meet you. My Sister from #15 used to live in Sugar Valley, Greenville SC. It really is a lovely State. First time I ever saw Fireflys and Beetle Bugs.

Your Avon cream is $32 over here.
It tastes awful...

Sorry Mel,
Forgot to add that of course you can join Steve and I for dinner.
His schedule is fairly full at present, but he has pencilled us in for October 2009. He suggests the Croesus in L.A. and will send his Lear Jet over for me. We'll stop off in S.C. and pick you up.
How does that sound?

Ummm... yeah, so how often do you lay out in the sun with your buttocks exposed?

5:14 PM  
Blogger Sans Pantaloons said...

We don't get too much Sun over here, so when it does come out, every window is thrown open and buttock cheeks are forced out into the daylight. Whole streets of twin pale buttocks are to be seen, some hairy, some not.

Do come visit. Bring sunglasses.

Blogger Doctor Mom said...

I would venture to guess the sunglassses are to protect my eyes from the moons rather than the sun?

10:43 PM  
Blogger Sans Pantaloons said...

Yes, see if you can get a pair of peril-sensitive sunglasses. I fully realize you must be used to upsetting sights in your career, but a street full of hairy pale thrusting buttocks...

Even the Lord of the Rings would be traumatized.

Blogger Doctor Mom said...

Ah, I will protect my eyes with UVA an UVB blocking glasses, like I protect my own bottom with SPF 80!

Ah the difficult life of a redhead. Scotland has plenty of redheads. They still do the buttock thrust when the Sun comes out though. Tan first pay later.

I think we do have one of the highest levels of melanoma in Europe. Pay later it is.
