Another Year, Another Dalek
I woke up on Christmas Day to find a surprise in my stocking. A brand new Dalek!
My wife fashioned him from a new variety of Dalekanium-based yarn, one highly resistant to corrosion. Thus, we dubbed him "Rusty."
All too soon, Rusty made himself at home, playing with my new Spider-Man dartboard, and even finding his way onto the Christmas tree.
Apparently, my wife made Rusty while we were watching TV in the evening, which shows how observant I am when caught in the grip of a compelling story. But then, I suppose there's all sorts of wonderful things going on around us all the time--people and things we fail to notice--because we're so caught up in what we're doing.
Welcome to our home, Rusty, and best wishes to all of you out there for a happy and healthy 2014.
