Sorry about that...The X-Files: Fight the Future was on Cinemax, and we haven't seen it in about seven years, since the show started to suck, and we only had it on videotape and wanted to burn it, so of course the entire family watched it...boy did that take me back! I loved those characters so much, and unlike most shows I could 'ship it in several different directions though Mulder/Scully were always overwhelmingly my favorite.

I needed to chill out this evening because I had a mammogram this morning, always such a pleasant experience, plus I had to get up extra-early because I needed to pick up my baseline records from the old lab with which my insurance no longer participates and take them to the new lab with which it does.
