Share Your World – 2016 Week 2
Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
I think that there is definitely other life on other plants, these might only microbes and things, but definitely other “life” out there. As for big alien E.T. things, I think it a definite possibility. We know that there are so many other solar systems and other planets that we are aware of but don’t have the means to visit. What’s to say there isn’t some big alien culture out there in the same position?
How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.
I have probably lived in two, really lived in them. My home is Australia, but I was for a time living on and off in America for about three years. I was in a long distance relationship so I was going back and forth a lot. I don’t think that I could live in another country though, after my experience I love my family and they are amazingly rare!
If you given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do?
Disneyland! =D In all seriousness I really would BUT I would do other things before then and then go to Disneyland. Definitely pay off my parents and siblings mortgages (or in my brother case get him a place and then pay off the mortgage, so he can stop renting,lol). Set up a house for myself and THEN go to Disneyland … Oh to dream,lol
The Never List: What are things you’ve never done? Or things you know you never will do?
I say “Never say never”! There are things that I definitely can’t see myself doing, but you just never know!
I cannot even begin to tell you how long I have waited and how excited I am for this!!! Finally some amazing awesome…wait for it…Fantastic news! Unlike a lot of other people, I am always excited to meet the new Doctors and new companions and always anticipate what they will bring.
My favourite Doctor is always going to be Matt Smith, (#sorrynotsorry) I cannot deny what the 11th Doctor for me. He brought me back to life, he made me listen to words again, he made me listen, he made me smile when nothing else could during an extremely dark time in my life.
I am so excited to see what Peter Capaldi is going to bring though! I sense a lot more darkness, less “romance’…but in the good way…I cannot even begin…I have not stop squealing, I have been waiting literally months for this weekend.

(And now for something completely different)
Over the last couple of weeks I have been re-watching a classic 90’s tv show called “Babylon 5”. It is without a doubt one of my most favourite shows, I haven’t been able to buy it myself as it’s very rare and it seems very expensive to buy. It’s one of those shows that every couple of years I re-watch the entire series and I always see something new or realise how much I have forgotten since the last time I watched it.
It’s quite a complicated science fiction and quite unique in how it was filmed. The writers had written the entire series before even staring to film, so in this way they were able to shoot events that they knew would end up tying bits of the show together. They would have “Flash Forwards” were in the present, the characters (and the viewers) would see things that would not be happening until further into the series. So before they started filming, they already knew what the outcomes would be.
Awards presented to Babylon 5 include:
- Emmy Award: Outstanding Individual Achievement in Special Visual Effects, 1993 (The Gathering)
- Emmy Award: Outstanding Individual Achievement in Hairstyling for a Series , 1994 (episode, “The Parliament of Dreams“)[
- Hugo Award: Best Dramatic Presentation, 1996 (episode, “The Coming of Shadows“)
- Hugo Award: Best Dramatic Presentation, 1997 (episode, “Severed Dreams“)
