Junk Drawer: Mad About Doctor

So this isn't really literature related, but so what...  I was sick all weekend, which means I spent a lot of time on the couch watching television.  Doctor Who to be exact.  I became embarrassingly behind in my efforts to catch up with the Doctor, and I'm oh so close to finishing series 3.  Which means I just watched "Blink.  Yeah.  The Weeping Angels are absolutely terrifying.  I will never look at stone angel statuary the same again.  Actually, that kind of extends to just about any statuary.  Even my garden gnomes are starting to creep me out a bit.  I maybe, might have, turned them around to face the wall so their beady little ceramic eyes couldn't see me.  Except Mike of course.  He's safe.  I think.

There had been no sign of Doctor Who fandom in my library (beyond the awesome staff I work with) until this year.  So far, I've seen 2 Doctor-themed t-shirts and a couple of keychains.  So he's finally arrived, which means, much to my personal enjoyment, a Doctor Who program might be in my future for Teen Services.

But what to do?  We could:

- Build a TARDIS (surely Lowe's will donate a refrigerator box!)
- Decorate t-shirts
- Construct Lego Daleks
- Have a trivia contest
- Create our own creepies for the Doctor to battle
- Manufacture our own Sonic Screwdrivers

The Programming Librarian post by Alyson Youngpeter had some great ideas too!
- TARDIS and Dalek papercrafts
- TARDIS Rice Krispies treats (Yummy and fun!)
- Sonic Screwdrive dipped pretzel recipes

Do you have any ideas?  I'd love to add them to the list!

Oh...and don't forget.  Whatever you do, don't blink.
