The Eight Doctors

Another Obligatory Personal Page

Louise Lobinske, webmaster wannabeI'm your new host, Louise Lobinske. Thanks for visiting Who's Doctor Who. For those of you interested in the lives of yet another total stranger, I'm 42 years old, married, and childfree. I grew up in Maine; when I was 18 my parents moved to Florida for their health and dragged me with them. I went to Oberlin College for a year and was "withdrawn" (hey, I'm not complaining - it was a great experience, and I pretty much deserved to be kicked out). A few months after I came back to Florida, I met the man who would become my fiancé and later my husband, Richard Lobinske, who has a home page of his own called Life on Saipan, 1944-1945, the look of which still reflects Allen's redesign. (Richard and I met on stage, and that's a whole other story...) Besides Allen and other friends, Richard introduced me to another group of weirdos called the Society for Creative Anachronism, where, when I show up, I'm known as Lady Krystyna Czartoryska (it takes a weirdo to know a weirdo). I'm an editor and proofreader by trade, and a writer and lots of other things at heart. I don't think I have a favorite Doctor, to be honest - I like them all, although it will be hard to watch David Tennant leave. My favorite sci-fi and fantasy shows include Babylon 5, most incarnations of Star Trek, Red Dwarf, Tripping The Rift, and (except for the 2001-2002 season for both shows) Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. My favorite SF and fantasy writers include Neil Gaiman, Anne Rice, Orson Scott Card, and Roger MacBride Allen. My major was in journalism (at least the major I got the AA in - the other three were creative writing, microbiology, and chemistry). I've known how to play the piano since I was eight, although I'm out of practice. My favorite books include The Scarlet Pimpernel (read it three times - a record for me), The Prisoner of Zenda, and Longitude (read it in three days - another record). I sometimes miss role-playing. My other hobbies include sudoku, which I got hooked on in a week and a half (five years after everyone else, which is about my speed). Thanks again for visiting and I hope you enjoy Who's Doctor Who.

If I may, here are a few of my favorite links:

At the Tomb of Tutankhamen @ nationalgeographic.com - An interactive web rendering of the original 1923 article written for National Geographic at the tomb's official opening - really cool

Bizarre News - "Spanning the globe for the weird...strange...and stupid"

Institute for Druidic Technology - Sections include "Hyperborean Mainframes", an example of which is Stonehenge; and "Celtic Computing Systems," which were based on the "RUNIX" operating system

Indict Bush Now - He's no longer president, but he's still a criminal
