With my birthday yesterday, I thought a picture of some very cool presents would be appropriate for Saturday Snapshot!
I didn’t realise until I took this photo what very British-themed gifts I got this year–I guess my family knows my interests! I’m planning a trip to London this fall, so the London guidebook, map and journal are quite appropriate. That’s a “Disappearing TARDIS” mug from Doctor Who (more on that in a moment), and a Wizard of Oz CD. You’re about to tell me that L. Frank Baum was American…and he was, but it’s Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Wizard of Oz, performed in London, with Michael Crawford in the title role.
The TARDIS is the Doctor’s time (and space) machine (it’s bigger on the inside), which appears and disappears. In this case, when you add hot water.
I had fun snapping those pictures. And what could be more British than drinking tea in a Doctor Who mug?
