Sometimes it's hard to stay thankful

Not much to say right now, except I'm feeling a bit down and upset due to the pressure of finals. It's hard to talk to others about it. I think it's about time I started using Msn messenger again ;)

I want to try and stay thankful nonetheless ('cause I'm still alive, breathing, seeing, hearing, and watching Doctor Who*) and I like this quote:

You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. --G.K. Chesterton

Now that's a good idea :)

    Ah the good Doctor. Yes Saturday nights are watchable again!

    What do you make of Tennant then? I think he's doing a great job.

    I once played the Doctor in a college video, but the least said of that the better.

    I really thought the scriptwriters did a grand job of being sympathetic to the character of Sarah Jane... she is probably the most definitive of all the Doctor's companions.

    K9 rocked. I loved all the tin dog referemnces and the bit where Mickey couldn't work out what to use to get into the school and K9 just keeps repeating "We are in a car!"

    I actually thought they gave K9 a rather sharp sense of humour, which was quite clever given his limited dialogue.

    Anyway keep the faith!

    God bless

    If we have to force ourselves to be thankful, then we aren't really thankful at all...

    I think it's possible to have a thankful attitude. Basically I try and remember the good things and be grateful for them :)

    Nick - I thought K9 was amazing. "Good dog" "Affirmative" :D I also really liked the way the Sarah Jane story was handled, especially when Rose suddenly seemed to realise, That could be me in 30 years. I like Tennant a lot but I'm not sure if he's my favourite. He has, however, helped entice my housemate into watching, which is nice :)

    You played the Doctor... *giggle*, that's brilliant.

    God bless.

    Tosh - of course you can be thankful when you aren't feeling thankful - that's the point of counting your blessings - which is a very scriptural concept. That's what Job was told to do - did he seem very thankful to you?

    Hi Helen, how's it going? Seen my blog yet,
