Do you know what today is?!?!?!?! The X-Files aired for the first time on September 10, 1993 and I have been in love with this series since then. To call me an X-Phile might be understating the facts a bit. I remember watching it that first night with my dad and I became hooked. I even watched it through those last two seasons...I'm either a masochist or a trooper...perhaps a little of both.
This was the first show I dedicated my life to. I still have t-shirts, magazines, my old fan-club ID, my Scully costume, posters, action figures, novels, comics, the list goes on and on. Every time I try to clean out my junk the only things that survive are my books and X-Files stuff. See I'm wearing one of the first tees I ever bought today:
This hangs in my room and is my pride and joy because it's signed by both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I've had this poster since this cover came out and my friend had it professionally framed for me a couple of years ago:
This year has been a great year in that I finally...FINALLY...got to participate in some X-File events like the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex airing of episodes followed by a short Q&A:
Yep...Chris Carter, the man himself.
But the highlight was this year's ComicCon where I finally got to see this:
I've seen them both individually but never together and never right in front of me! I still fangirl hardcore every time I see this. I'm getting all teary eyed again. It was magical.
So all that to say that today is very special for me, my friend and I celebrated last night by watching some episodes. I hope the birthday girl today understands what I'm sacrificing in going to her party vs. staying home and celebrating this momentous occasion
So to wrap this up I leave you with some deviations I've found around the site:
I STILL BELIEVE
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!
