Hello, stranger.

Well well well... what have we here? Ah yeah, it's me.

I'm sorry, I didn't recognise myself. You see, it's just been so long since I last posted a blog. I say "so long," when I really mean "a very long time; almost half a year."

I first started blogging because an english project inspired me to do so, but as many of my friends know, my enthusiasm shines in its first five minutes. It doesn't really shine so brightly in the long-term.

I decided that I ought to post something, to try and redeem myself. By that, I mean "hey, it's christmas day and I have nothing else to do, so I thought I'd log in."

Yes, it is christmas day, and I'm muslim, so I don't really have anything to do. Although I always tell my parents that it's fine to celebrate christmas, because it's not really Jesus' birthday, and has virtually nil christian symbolism in its framework. It's so commercialised, it's not really religious at all. So even though it has nothing to do with me specifically, I'm still rather excited. Namely for one reason and one reason only... the christmas episode of Dr. Who! It's got to be said, it is an amazing show! It's a real pity that they don't air it all year. Most of you probably won't share that opinion, but i'm a dork.

That's really all I was building up to. I made you suckers read all of that, thinking it was going to be really exciting and about how my christmas day was going, as well as various religious or moral conflicts I have with the celebration, but I really just fooled you all. I hope you had fun reading about how awesome I think Dr. Who is... Great job wasting your time! :)
