For me with blogging, it still means posting two or three times a week, and it still means reading all of your beautiful posts, but it just means that I’m not burning the midnight oil on my posts. Maybe less words and more photos. Maybe less photos and more words. More punch in shorter posts. I didn’t know what to do about the historically long Ask Away Friday post!
I mentioned that I wanted it to be interesting to people who don’t watch Doctor Who, so I wanted to be asking/answering questions that you don’t necessarily need to watch the show to understand, because it’s more about lives and dreams.

#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County as a place for us to connect with other bloggers by asking them ten questions to really get to know them. The sky is the limit with the questions you ask!

Be sure to see Live By Surprise’s answers to my questions HERE. And here are my answers to her questions:
1. If you could pick one event in history (not in your own timeline) to photograph, what would it be? Would you try to change it?
I’m very obsessed with size (not meant in a dirty way) and I’ve always been obsessed with The Titanic. Like, really obsessed. I’d love to photograph it ABOUT to set off in the majestic sea, with all of those people waving. All of their hopes and dreams and lives. After the photography, I’d stop the boat from going. I’d find a way. Do something. Anything to make it not go!
2. If you could pick one person (past, present or future) to meet this afternoon for tea and crumpets – who would it be and why?
I would pick my father! There are lots of people I’d like to meet, but I’d like to start with getting to know who my father was.
3. What is your favorite Dr. Who themed outfit or item of clothing? (Picture required – and one of your children or Cassidy can be wearing it).
I really like the idea of a TARDIS dress. I have a nice homemade one but I wore it while pregnant so I always felt so lumpy in it. I really want this one at Think Geek. They have it in red Dalek form too, but I don’t like being a villain very much.
4. If you could have a British accent, would you? Who would you try it out on first? (Bonus points if you put up a video of you trying out your Brit).
haha, no bonus points for me, sadly. Yes, I would have one. I think they’re sexy. They’re so sexy that I was wondering what the actor who played Sir Dax in the Halloween episode of “Sofia The First” looks like in real life, because his accent is HOT.
5. Which one is “your” Doctor? Why?
I don’t really know! I probably first saw episodes with Tom Baker, but they bored me to tears. (please don’t hate) I know I saw 10th doctor episodes, but I really started consistently watching with the 11th doctor (Matt Smith) and then going back and watching all of the 9th and 10th doctor seasons. So the 11th doctor is probably “my Doctor”, because his seasons are when I fell in love with the show. And bow ties are cool.
6. You’re dropped in the middle of London (England) for a day and can meet with anyone/do anything. What do you do?
I’d meet with my blogger friend Angela from Little Apple Tree. She has the coolest adventures with her family in England so I’d have her meet me in the city to show me all of the amazing things she wants to show me! And I’d probably go on a shopping spree for English candy. I’d definitely want to leave the city too. Can I do that? I’m not a city girl, but I’d make exceptions. I’d need to rent/bring a wide lens to take to the Tower of London to see the poppies.
7. An alien lands in your backyard. Do you go out and find out if he’s friendly or do you call the army? Why?
I definitely wouldn’t call the Army. I’d probably.. tiptoe out.. With my camera, of course.
8. Which villain do you think is the scariest (new or old series)? Are there any episodes you won’t let the kids watch?
I think the Weeping Angels still scare me the most. I can feel the hair on back of my neck stand up just writing it! Des doesn’t watch any Doctor Who, but Scarlet will watch episodes that we have watched first to determine if she can handle them!
9. The last episode was about alien antibodies. When was the last time you were so sick you couldn’t move?
Last winter I got a cold that was terrible. It lasted eleven days, which is ridiculous. However, the sickest I’ve gotten in over a decade was two years ago, right after Des was born. Scarlet had a terrible cold while Des was in the NICU, so she couldn’t visit him. When we finally got him home, my resistance was so down from the hospital stress and the postpartum exhaustion that I caught her bad cold. I never catch her colds! It mutated into a sinus infection, and then I became allergic to the antibiotics I was on, so I developed full body hives. WHILE sleepless and nursing a newborn. Plus my grandfather died during it. AND I was in the middle of a 40 hour work project. That I couldn’t afford to decline. During all of that.
10. Doctor Who has had some amazing companions. What makes you a good companion?
I’m not saying it never happens, but if at all possible, I don’t say “no.” I’m up for adventures, or giving a shoulder to cry on, or offering help with writing and photography. Whatever I can do to help you? I’m there.
