You guys.  Seriously.  So many feelings right now!  I just found out that my new co-worker is a Whovian!  Let me repeat, WHOVIAN!!

I think I made a great impression on her today (the second day I have known her btw)  Let's recap:

Me:  Okay, headed home for the day.  Do you have any last questions for me.

Her: What do you do with all your spare time?

Me:  I watch alot of British TV.

Her: Do you watch Doctor Who?

Me:   *spit take*

Her:   *stunned silence as she wipes water off her computer monitor*

[General laughing for about 5 minutes from our other co-worker who witnessed my fountain-impression]


Seriously guys, I got so excited to rant about my love of Doctor Who, that I forgot I had water in my mouth.  I couldn't be bothered to swallow first, and then start gushing.  What a nerd. :nerd:

The water spraying incident turned into apologies, then me asking who her favorite Doctor was (Tennant was discussed, and I countered with Eccleston).  She tried to out-Whovian me by saying she has a TARDIS cookie jar.  I said, "I'm working on a TARDIS cosplay."  

So, like I said, I think it went well.  :facepalm:  I really shouldn't have tried to one-up her.  I just got too excited that I finally found a real-life Whovian (no offense to all of you brilliant people).  I really  hope she doesn't think I'm too weird now...

That wouldn't happen right?  Right?

I think I would squeal in delight if I would find a real-life Whovian. Believe me, I will have to be extremely lucky if I find one in this country *sobs for some minutes*.

I'm glad you actually found one! Sounds just so great!

Yeah. We've all been so busy at work, I haven't actually gotten to talk to her about it. But she still seems really cool! :)

I remember the most recent time I found another whovian--we had happened to be talking about Van Gogh, then suddenly we both paused and muttered at the exact same time, "He was on Doctor Who..." Then we got yelled at for squealing with excitement. :shrug:

LOL. There is an emoticon for that: :squee:

I also got some weird looks from people when I was squeeing at ComicCon last weekend. Guess I'm just too excitable.

No offense taken!! It awesome to find people online to talk to about doctor who and stuff but in real like you get to like see them and talk to them!!! I have a bunch of nerdfighter friends online but I would really like to know one in real life. :( I totally get it.

Oh and that is an awesome story!!!! I had a similar one back in high school when I told my grade 10 english teacher the pencil sharpener was frelled. (frelled being a swear word in a fictional SciFi Series called Farscape) and she just looked at me like I had made her day. ^_^ He were friend after that or as much friends as a teacher and student can be without it being werid. :)

Glad you know what I meant. ;) I love talking to you guys about DW so much!

I haven't seen Farscape, but I've heard of it. I like that story.

Me too!!! ^_^

And thanks. I actually ended up giving that teacher farscape book marks for chirstmas that year. She was so amazed she sent me a letter that said it was the most thoughtful gift she ever received and a gift card to Tim Hortins. ^_^

Hooray for real life Whovians! I found out that one of the kids I tutor has an uncle who really likes Doctor Who. =D That made my day!

Yeah. I still get excited seeing people in cosplay! Like "there are other people who are as dedicated to the show as me!" :D

Some of the BEST cosplays were female versions of various Doctors. Those were AWESOME.

haha i hate it when people try to one-up me on whovianism, even though i've yet to find someone who wins against me :P i'm kind of a hypocrite saying that though, i'm pretty sure i do it without realizing too. i know i only do it if they start it though, because i'd rather talk about the show then how much i love it and how much merch i have lol. i understand the excitement and that you kind of wanna prove how big a fan you are, though.

i don't think she thought you were weird! i'm sure if she dished out for a tardis cookie jar she'd be excited to find another fan too :P

Well, I think the spit take overshadowed the one-ups-manship. :/

I think we'll be fine. It's always so busy at our job that we just never have time to talk about our awesome DW!

hahaha maybe
if it had been you and me i probably would have done a spit-take at your spit-take because that's how awkward i am
and then we would have been awesome together
so yay us for being weird!
