An infographic of space travel from year 0 to the end of time for Valentines Day

From one Whovian to another, love is timeless. In my best River Song imitation..."Hello Sweetie."
Rose went away
So the doctor is blue.
Ask Donna, "Where's the Doctor?"
She'll reply, "Doctor Who?"
Sarah Jane, and Martha,
And now both the Ponds
Had their fun with the Doctor
And now they've all gone.
So ask me again
Why the TARDIS is blue:
There's a sad man inside
With both hearts torn in two.
                                                          -- by A. Whovian

Wishing you a time-tastic Valentine's Day in the language of four of Dr. Who's greatest villains :)

THE SILENCE: "Forget me not."

THE DALEKS: "INFATUATE!!"

THE CYBERMEN:  "I wouldn't change a thing about you."

THE WEEPING ANGELS: "I can't take my eyes off you."

And if that isn't the coolest, nerdiest Valentine's greeting you have EVAR gotten, then I leave you with an infographic of space travel from year 0 to the end of time for Valentine's Day. Notice that "The Doctor" occupies both ends. In the immortal words of Sheldon Cooper, "If you don't have a Tardis, you stink and your party stinks."
If you take away anything from my post today, it should be this: all it takes to turn someone into a Dalek is to subtract love and add anger. May even the grumpiest bulldog appreciate that statement.

Have a great Thursday :)

Em-Musing said...

Only you could give Valentine's Day a new twist. LOve your post.

DEZMOND said...

Happy Single Awareness Day, Michael :)

Charity Bradford said...

This may be my favorite post EVAR! Star Trek used to be my greatest love. And then I met the Doctor. I can't wait to find out who Souffle (sp?) girl is.

mshatch said...

I'm afraid I'm with Elise; Valentine's Day is probably my least favorite holiday but i wouldn't mind having my own tardis.

Matthew MacNish said...

I'm ashamed I don't recognize all those ships.

PT Dilloway, Grumpy Bulldog said...

I might be offended if I knew what the hell a dalek is.

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, this was fabulous! I've been mostly avoiding Valentine's posts, but I'm glad I stopped here... and there is always Rose and the one-heart Doctor to prove even a lonely Doctor deserves to grow old with the person he loves...

Andrew Leon said...

Why is the firefly class ship (that is a firefly, right?) so long in the past? Is there some timeline about that I haven't seen?

Andrew Leon said...

Or, wait, is that a battlestar?

L.G. Smith said...

I usually hate all the mushy Valentine's Day cards full of overly sentimental crap, but that Dr. Who one is awesome.

Happy Valentine's Day. :)

loverofwords said...

Happy Valentines! Geeky is fab. Loved all of those.

OMG, that is the perfect way to describe a Dalek!

Yolanda Renee said...

Thanks for the lovely Valentine, and you've caught me so unprepared to return the favor.

Wonderful humorous mind that you are!

Alyson Burdette said...

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Munir said...

Dr.Who was one of the first couple of shows I used to watch when I went from India to England. I was impressed then and I still am.
Happy Valentine's Day. Your post today is different and interesting.

J.L. Campbell said...

Enjoy the day, Michael. It's too much about the commercial for me to buy into it. Not so my husband.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You had me at the title of your blog. Happy Valentine's day. I have to share this with my daughter. She a bigger Whovian nut than me.

Helena said...

Yes, this is the coolest, nerdiest Valentine I've ever gotten. I hope your V day was spectacular and full of love.

Misha Gericke said...

I've never watched Dr. Who. I know. Ridiculous, right?

:-D

Donna Hole said...

Very cool Michael; love the timeline. Not a Dr Who fan though. Just an oversight on my part I'm sure.

I hope you V-day was a good one.

Have a great weekend.

.......dhole

Rusty Webb said...

I suppose I'm a day late here. We all love the good doctor. And the infographic. Hope your day was a good one.

Laura Eno said...

This is great! I'm sorry to say I've never seen Dr Who...can you believe it? Love that timeline. :)

Tonja said...

I married two men (not at the same time) who were obsessed with Dr. Who. Sorry - I didn't get a word of this.

I love how your post titles are so specific and unclear at the same time - I can't help but click them. Have a great weekend.

tfwalsh said...

C. Lee McKenzie said...

This is quite a post: Dr. Who , Valentine's Day and a graphic metaphor! I'm off to find me a Tardis or two.
