Re: Doctor Who

Maybe. Although, take into account that the Doctor isn't too far away from running out of regenerations (he has to be a bit more careful when choosing who's worth dying for), and that Ten has developed a sort of superiority complex to hide the agony he's in. How many regeneratio...

Carpet.

Okay guys, I need to get my carpet replaced at some point, but thinking about it, I don't want to go with some standard plain crap.

Could anyone enlighten me on some awesome carpet I could get? A Portal themed carpet would be awesome, but I doubt one exists.

Anyone?

The problem more comes from the fact that there's a lot of, so to speak, 'red tape' surrounding it, the school gets permission from parents before it does any SexEd with its classes, and that's a lot of kids (over 300) to round up permission slips from. =/
