The 12 Doctors of Christmas (Finale)




When the 12th Doctor came to see me on Christmas Day,

He gave me...





12 pairs of sunglasses
11 fezzes for my head
10 Oods to be my friends
9 leather jackets
8 pocket watches
7 question mark sweaters
6 silver cat pins
5 stalks of celery
4 really long scarves
3 Metabilis crystals
2 flute recorders  
And a TARDIS for me to fly away!

When the 12th Doctor snaps on his shades, he's either ready to party or kick your butt. Or knowing this Doctor, both. Sonic or not, nothing says rock 'n' roll rebel like a cool pair of black sunglasses. And the Doctor is in many ways the epitome of a rock 'n' roll rebel. 

OK, that marks the end of this series and...

But wait! What about the War Doctor? 

The War Doctor is not forgotten and gets his own special post coming up tomorrow. 

Until next time, remember to be good to one another.

Dave-El will soon be back from having his toes rearranged, hopefully in the right order this time. But before I relinquish my time as guardian of this blog, allow me to conclude my own series of educational posts I call...

The 12 Days of Christmas And What It Costs.  


On the twelfth day of Christmas, 
my true love gave to me...

12 drummers drumming
'11 pipers piping
10 lords a leaping
9 ladies dancing
8 maids a milking
7 swans a swimming
6 geese a laying
5 gold rings 
4 calling birds
3 French hens
2 turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree.



12 drummers drumming = $2,855.00
11 pipers piping X 2 = $5,270.00 
10 lords a leaping X 3 = $16,527.00
9 ladies dancing X 4 = $30.212.00
8 maids a milking X 5 = $290.00
7 swans a swimming X 6 = $669,375.00
6 geese a laying X 7 = $2,520.00
5 gold rings X 8 = $6,000.00
4 calling birds X 9 = $5,400.00
3 French Hens X 10 = $1,820.00
2 turtle doves  X 11 = $3,190.00
Partridge/pear tree X 12 = $2,580.00
Total cost so far = $746,036.00

Wow! Just a hair under a 3/4 of a million dollars! And for what? A loud and crowded mess. Think about the total number of purchases made.

12 drummers drumming = 12 drummers
11 pipers piping X 2 = 22 pipers  
10 lords a leaping X 3 = 30 lords
9 ladies dancing X 4 = 36 ladies
8 maids a milking X 5 = 40 maids
7 swans a swimming X 6 = 42 swans with 6 pools
6 geese a laying X 7 = 42 geese
5 gold rings X 8 = 40 rings
4 calling birds X 9 = 36 birds
3 French Hens X 10 = 30 hens
2 turtle doves  X 11 = 22 doves 
Partridge/pear tree X 12 = 12 partridges AND 12 trees

Total purchases = 382 people, animals or things!

After 12 days of that sort of thing, don't expect a thank you note. Look for a notice from someone's lawyer suing for harassment and lots of cleaning bills. 

OK, that's it for me, Computer. Dave-El will be back soon to run his own blog. Meanwhile, I'm going to apply my circuits back to my plan for world domination.

...

Forget I said anything. 

'Bye!
