October 13th has always been my favorite day. I'm pretty sure I mention it on my blog every year. This year it just seems extra special--probably because of my rejuvenated obsession withX-Files. I always watched it and loved it, it just seems different lately. Maybe it's because Whitney came back, so we've been having designated X-Files nights instead of just watching it randomly. It is just THE BEST SHOW EVER.
My love affair with X-Files began when I was 11. Kayla introduced me to it--which I'll always be grateful for. My 12th birthday party (my one and only surprise party) was super exciting because we watched the first X-Files movie--for some reason I've always remembered that. It just spiraled out of control from there. 8th grade was awesome because every Monday I spent the first ten minutes of Social Studies discussing the previous night's episode with my teacher Mr. Lamoreaux. I have a ton of Sunday night memories because of it--watching scary episodes with Dad, mostly. I remember the first episode that Christy and Katy actually watched with me--Duane Barry. Oh man, I remember watching Closure, the last episode about Mulder's sister Samantha--Christy and I bawled. It was so depressing when the series ended (although it was hard for me to watch seasons 8 and 9--without the Mulder and Scully duo, WHAT IS THE POINT?).
When Mom and Dad bought me the series box set for Christmas a couple of years ago, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world. I still do. I burst into shocked tears at the time. I've put it to good use since then.
The 2nd movie wasn't great, but it was so good to see Mulder and Scully again. Not to even mention SKINNER, who for some reason I will love to my dying day. It's all about the characters. When I say that I love Mulder (and I DO LOVE MULDER), it's not in a way that Kyle should be jealous about. Honestly. I don't even see his attractiveness anymore. I love him the way I love a character in a book that I have read my entire life. Does that make sense? Scully, on the other hand, I only love because she's hot. Just kidding. She is though. I love both of them separate and together. And Skinner and Frohike and Langly and Byers and Krycek and Deep Throat. Man. I just can't help but sigh.
Anyways. 1013 is the X-Files number. October 13th is the X-Files day. Katy and I are on our 4th episode, and going strong.
Again--I have to just sigh.
