Obviously, you will be serving fish fingers and custard. You might want to check out this recipe.
Tea is, also, a must. These Tiny TARDIS Pies sound delicious, and who could resist Mini Chocolate Dalek Cakes? Adipose Marshmallows and Sonic Screwdriver Pretzel Sticks will add a nice touch to the table. For drinks, serve Sonic Screwdrivers and Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey TARDIS Punch. Also, always bring a banana to a party.
Before the show starts, have everyone make their own fez. Don’t forget a bow tie because bow ties are cool.

I’m not much of a comic book fan. I don’t care who Spider-Man is dating or if Captain America is alive or dead. However, somehow I became a fan of Loki, the conniving but miscalculating villain of Thor and The Avengers. Despite the long list of movies I want to watch, I ended up seeing Thor: […]

For me, it has been a summer of books. Good books. Bad books. Meh books. Lately, I’ve been swept up in fantastical stories involving werewolves, vampires, and other such creatures.

Every few weeks she would shut herself up in her room, put on her scribbling suit, and “fall into a vortex” as she expressed it, writing away at her novel with all her heart and soul, for till that was finished she could find no peace. Her “scribbling suit” consisted of a black woollen pinafore […]
