Not the morning I expected

I had grand plans for this morning, which should have been my first clue that things would NOT go according to plan. I did manage to get a couple of e-mails I've been meaning to send sent out, but beyond that, nothing. I have a blog post cooking that I am very eager to write - one that I intended to start this morning. Did not happen. The problem with blogging is I always get the urge and inspiration to write while I am at work. That is decidedly not happening. Ever.

I did do 15 minutes on the bike this morning while I watched an episode of The X-Files. The episode was "Small Potatoes" in which a man is able to change his appearance at will and eventually turns into Mulder. It was obviously fun for David Duchovny to play that dual role, but I thought the writing was predictable and boring and it has made me not want to get the next disc in the series right away. I think I am going to get the Tina Turner biopic What's Love Got To Do With It which I haven't seen since college and I have kind of been into the song "I Don't Wanna Fight" recently.

So as the Eddie Izzard joke goes, the best laid plans of mice and men. Exactly which mice plans was he really honing in here on? But my plans did definitely gang aft aglay.

Was that the episode where he stands in front of the mirror, flashes the badge, and says "Fox Mulder, F-B-I"?

Great episode, Dan! I love the end when Scully's so obviously embarrassed because the real Fox caught her almost making out with imposter Fox... Busted!!

Glad to see you're reading "Perks Of Being A Wallflower," too! Hope you're enjoying it.

I was so obsessed with XFiles back in the day and then have not watched on EP for years. I wish I could have a DVD of just the episodes I want. I need to NetFlix this show and relive my past!

I am distinctly in the minority on this one, apparently. I just didn't think the episode was that good!

And yep, Yuri, it's the one you're thinking of.

I have tossed around getting the X-Files box set, but at $250ish dollars, it's just not in the budget!
