So I’m watching The X-Files.

The X-Files is one of those shows I managed to miss when it first aired even though it was massively popular. Maybe I was too young. Maybe it’s because my family wasn’t into it. I don’t know. But, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer before it, I missed out and am now catching up on Netflix.

What popular TV have you managed to skip over?

    My favourite blog post of the weekend:

    “[Here is nothing missing, but a cat urinated on this during a certain night. Cursed be the pesty cat that urinated over this book during the night in Deventer and because of it many others [other cats] too. And beware well not to leave open books at night where cats can come.”

    I missed the Lizzie Borden live blog!! (Spoilers: I took a three hour nap instead. 60 hour work weeks will do that to a girl.) but I get to see Book of Mormon in Cincinnati tomorrow!!

      Book of Mormon is AMAZING! I laughed the entire time and spent the car ride home giggling to myself just thinking about it.

    I also missed Buffy when it originally aired which is a damn shame because I feel like it would have really influenced me. I just recently watched it on Netflix.

    In other news, I partially cut the tip of my finger off. :( I was chopping an onion with one of the knives we just got for Christmas and it was about 30 seconds after my husband told me to be more careful. Heh. What sucks the most is that I don’t know when or how I’ll be able to work. I already called in for tonight. Argh.

      Ouch! What kind of work do you do? Can you get a doctor’s opinion on it do you think?

      My boss would tell me to go to the doctor and let her know, but I (a) work in an office and (b) live in England, where there is the NHS.

        I’m a nurse and thus frequent hand washing and glove wearing in an unfortunate requirement. :/ Thankfully my charge nurse was understanding when I called in.

        And I don’t know. I think one of the side effects of being a nurse (and being raised by a nurse) is that I don’t seek medical attention when I should. That and I didn’t want to spend money on the copay. :) BUT. I just redressed my finger and it looks better. And by better I mean that the flap of skin appears to be re-adhering quite nicely.

    I’m crowdsourcing ideas here. We got a sweet new dog this week, and she kind of needs a name. She came with the name Domino, which I don’t love for a few reasons: 1) it’s kind of a boy name; 2) three-syllable names are awkward when you’re training; and C) it ends in “no,” which confuses things. So far, she’s turning out to be a sweet little lovebug who sleeps a lot. Here’s a picture, if it helps inspire you:

        I don’t know. When she peeked out of her crate, I immediately thought of Martha Jones. “Is anybody watching? Good. I’m going to explore.”

        Also, if you can’t go with Domino, why about Dice or Dicey.

      There’s something very Elven about her ears to me, but not very many elven names are two syllables. Arwen, maybe :)

      ETA: Ooo, or Vulcan. T’Pol? :)
