The often-lethal Mercurian boomerang spoon

In other news: Joshua wants a Doctor Who-themed birthday party.

I am excited. It’s not until June, but any excuse to start planning, right? There will be pin-the-tail-on-the-werewolf. There will be a puppet show, almost certainly with Ice Warriors. There will be costumes. I will probably go as a Slitheen. I already have the build.

Emily and I have been racking our brains to find appropriate foods. Thus far, and with more than a little help from Gareth, this is what we’ve come up with.


  • Monster Munch
  • Salami (see here)
  • Fish Fingers & Custard
  • Dalek Bread
  • Oodles (plate of noodles, with a glowing sphere attached)
  • Celery
  • Smith’s Crisps

Sweet stuff

  • Wafers of Mars
  • Jelly Babies
  • Eccles-ton Cakes
  • Black Forest of the Dead Gateau
  • Cakes with ball bearings on
  • Rutan (i.e. lime) Jelly
  • Weeping Angel Cake

For the adults (because we will need it in the evening)

  • Tennant’s lager
  • Bottle of wine, with the top half made to look like Dalek Sec

I fear a little refining may be in order, but what the hell, we’ve got three months. In the meantime I draw inspiration from last year, when (on a sunny afternoon when the warm weather went to our heads a bit) we combined the remnant’s of Daniel’s Makka Pakka cake with what was left of the TARDIS cake that one of Emily’s old friends – who was visiting – had made the day before. The results were intriguing:

You see what I mean. It’s like something out of MechWarrior, as imagined by a five-year-old. Tasted nice, though.
