Time Travel and Stuff

I have recently been thinking about time travel. Of course this all corresponds to that brilliant thing I love so much, Doctor Who. I think, if we had to travel in time, we would alter the events of everything, even by just standing in a certain place or looking at a rock, or something. There is no way to escape changing the past, no matter how hard you try. Say, you go back to the time of horse-drawn carriages and cobblestones and stuff and you kick a rock across the street, you could have just moved a rock that tripped a horse, thus causing a fatal accident to whoever was inside. So, if that all happens by kicking a little rock, think about something more, like killing someone who wasn’t supposed to die (like the whole example of killing Hitler as a child). There is also a paradox linked to that. If you don’t know what paradoxes are, look it up or get an example here. The Grandfather Paradox is its name. Basically, if you had to travel in time and kill your grandfather (I really don’t know why you’re killing your grandpa anyway, but lets say you do) before your mum or dad was born, your whole time stream is erased, thus erasing you from history. Unfortunately, and this is where it gets confusing and extremely complicated, with your time stream being erased, you couldn’t have existed to kill your grandad in the first place. This means he now hasn’t died, leaving you time stream available to exist again. THIS means you have the ability to kill him again (well, not again, but in the first place), starting the WHOLE cycle over again. He dies, you don’t exist, he can’t have died, you live, he dies. I know, CONFUSING. There are other paradoxes with time travel as well, but I can’t remember them right now. I’m tired, OKAY? Look them up!

Ok, now I have gone on a nice long tangent about time travel for you to mull over, I shall move to the boring stuff. Oh, wait, I can’t actually think of anything boring right now.
I shall now give a quote from Doctor Who:
“Didn't anyone ever tell you? There's one thing you never put in a trap—if you're smart, if you value your continued existence, if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow—there's one thing you never ever put in a trap.
Me.” –The Doctor Season 5 Episode 4 Time of Angels.
Epic quote.
And there is an epic song that goes with that epic man.
I am the Doctor – Murray Gold.
Search it.

So, this blog post has taken 13 hours to write due to a power failure at about 3:30 AM in which I had to shut down my laptop. It was awful. I was like, “Um, hello, I’m still busy writing here!! I need the internet! Ugh!”

Today, having woken up at about 12:00AM, I got very little done. I did, however, manage to make a birthday card for my young friend, J, who has been mentioned before.
I also started working on the stencil for my TARDIS canvas which will look a bit like this:
Photo0053This is my Raygun Robyn messenger bag birthday present.
I think that’s it for now
Oh, besides the nearly finished picture I’m working on. Babydoll from Sucker Punch. She just needs the rest of the background, an arm and a face.
