Wherein you join me in the realization that David Tennant is the perfect man...
If you don't know who I'm talking about then feel free to remove my blog from your reader right now. We can never be friends. This is harsh? I don't even care. David Tennant. Oh David Tennant. You'd know him if you saw him. Oh you want to see him now? I'm happy to oblige.
Are you breathing normally again? I look at these pictures on a fairly regular basis (one of them might be the current background on my phone and the others are most definitely in my screen saver), so I'm fairly used to seeing his perfection, though I'm not immune to his charm. Not only does he have an incredibly darling Scottish accent, but he makes a brown pinstripe suit and Chuck Taylors look hotter than most men could ever hope to (excepting Zachary Levi, of course). How can you not love someone who, at the age of three, told his parents that he wanted to become an actor so he could play Doctor Who? Who, after playing the Doctor to perfection for three seasons, went on to play Hamlet with the Royal Shakespeare Company and who (be still my heart) played Berowne in Love's Labour's Lost with the same company? Did you happen to know that Berowne's love letter to Rosaline is one of my very most favorite quotes? That's right. Chalk up a few more points for yourself, Mr. Tennant.
He made nerdy glasses cool before hipsters did and frequently says things like, "Wibbly wobbly timey wimey" and "Brilliant!", taught me to properly pronounce the name of the planet Raxacoricofallapatorius and uses a sonic screwdriver. He can travel forward, backward, sideways... let's be honest, pretty much anyway in time and to top it all off, he has absolutely fantastic hair as well as having brown eyes and dimples. Perhaps you recognize the Fantastic Mr. Tennant from the Harry Potter films? Particularly... Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Why yes! He's Barty Crouch, Jr.! Personally, I think that he should have played Remus Lupin. A) Because Remus is supposed to be good looking and hi, he's lovely. 2) Remus has a much larger role, which equals more screen time for my darling David. III) Aside from his good looks and his sheer awesomeness, he's a fantastic actor and could have pulled off the part perfectly. If he didn't scare the bejeezes out of you as Barty, then you're a nut.
I know. He's pretty much the perfect man. Why do you think I've been taking my sweet time watching series two, three and four of Doctor Who?! I'm going to have a panic attack when he regenerates into Matt Smith.
Send chocolate, I'm going to need it.
