Happy X-Files Day! Happy Treat Yo Self Day!  
I'm still sort of amazed that The X-Files is actually, seriously coming back.  Like, I want to travel back in time and tell teenage me that XF will still be on the air twenty years later.  After being pretty worried about it during filming, hearing the positive reception the first episode got at NYCC is making me much more excited - though I'm still nowhere near the epic heights of my fandom back in the day.

And, of course, it's the fourth anniversary of the Parks and Rec episode where Tom and Donna remind us that it's the best day of the year...treat yourself!  I'm going to pick up something for lunch instead of eating the dumb Lean Cuisine I brought.  Treat yourself two thousand fifteen!

Sigh; it is a testament to my status as a bad fan that I did not realize it was either of those days. I am super excited about the new episodes, though. Whee!

Okay, I did see a tumblr post about Treat Yourself Day that reminded me of it; I of course remember the episode, but didn't know it first aired on 10/13.

The lunch I treated myself with gave me indigestion. Oop.

I still mourn the lack of Gilligan in the new episodes. I know he has Better Call Saul, but I also know he probably could have whipped a script up in about two days that would have put everyone else (except maybe Darin Morgan) to shame.

Oh, I know. Gilligan was clearly one of the standouts, and although Darin Morgan is involved, the show would benefit so much from VG's involvement. Maybe if XF gets renewed for a second miniseries, he can have a part in it.

Yeah, it sounds like they're optimistic about doing more, so fingers crossed!
