The X-Files are back and this girl couldn’t be happier.
Seriously, I’m giddy like a schoolgirl.
I was a little worried about the revival – what if it’s awful and sucks? Will it tarnish the 9 previous years of the show?
I was a HUGE fan of the show. Back in medical school, I would have my friends over every Sunday night to watch the show and there was only one rule – no one was allowed to talk until the commercials. My friends respected my geekness, for the most part.
I even got a tattoo during medical school which exemplified my nerdiness and passion for The X-Files. Yes, I am that much of a geek.
Nowadays with the Internet and spoilers I was very keen not to read anything about the revival. I couldn’t even look at pictures from the set. I got goosebumps as I waited for the first episode to start after that silly football game ran over time. When I heard the opening theme music and credits roll I think I squealed in delight.
There was just something so magical about that show. I loved the dynamic between the two leads. I loved that Scully was a doctor and a scientist. (I even named my cat after her.) My favorite episodes were always the mythology ones. Don’t get me wrong, some of the best episodes were the “monster-of-the week”; “Home” anyone?
Even Scully, in last night’s episode, agrees with the audience that the monster-of-the-week cases were fun.
But it was the underlying mythology of the show that really sucked me in. Are we alone? Do aliens exist? Is the Government lying to us? What really happened to Mulder’s sister? What is the black oil? Who is Krycek?
There’s only 3 more episodes left to air in this revival. That can’t be the end! The ratings are exploding with every new episode. There has to be more!!!!!
Day 13. National Blog Posting Month.
I love cake. I just had two pieces of my mother’s birthday cake. I could easily eat more. It looked pretty much exactly like this but with pink frosting along the edges.
I love chocolate. A few nights ago, I raided my kids’ Hallowe’en stash and consumed 6 mini chocolate bars (Crispy Crunch, Wunderbar, and Caramilk) in about 5 minutes.
I love coffee. I make a coffee first thing in the morning, often before I kiss the kids “Good Morning”. I am particularly in love with the new Tim Horton’s K-cups. Oh-My-God. Tastes just like it came from the shop!!
I spend entirely too much time browsing message boards. I post sometimes, more often than I should, usually out of sheer boredom and for entertainment. I’d be far better off reading a damn book!
I’ve been streaming episodes of Alias on Netflix recently. I’ll watch two, maybe three episodes at a time and I wonder why my Internet bandwidth is increasing? I also have a crush on its star – Jennifer Garner.
In the middle of the night, when the baby starts to wake up, I put the soother back in his mouth hoping he’ll sleep for another cycle (ie 45 minutes). Most of the time, it works, and I get an extra hour.
Part of the reason why I am blogging every day this month is to get to 100 followers. ‘Cuz, you know, it’s kind of cool knowing that people are reading (and presumably) liking what I have to say. It makes it easier to come back to it everyday.
So there you have it, a few confessions today. Care to share some of yours?
A picture says two (or three) words.
I took this photograph a few days ago. It was about 9pm, husband and I were watching an episode of 30 Rock. I had gotten the baby to sleep and put him on a pillow next to me. This was after multiple attempts at trying to get him to sleep in the bassinet you see at the left of the photograph. I can’t tell you how lovely it was to be able to eat my dinner with two hands! He’d been asleep for about an hour and a half when he started to stir. The soother had fallen out of his mouth about an hour before and as I looked over at him, I saw his hand pop up. Immediately, I grabbed my camera and snapped the photograph. All I could think of was this:
