On the Fringe

First, I want it noted that I'm posting before 8:00 pm.  This is important because tonight is the first time I've been home from work before 7:00 pm in a looooong time.  I told Dave that I wanted this noted on my performance evaluation.  Oh, anyone who reads this probably knows who Dave is 'cuz there's only a handful of you, but juuuust in case you don't, let me introduce you...

Yeah you've seen this picture a million times (and it's fairly old - He's all white-faced now), but it's my favorite.

I don't have anything earth-shattering to share today, so I thought I'd tell you about one of my favorite TV shows - Fringe.  Anybody watch it?  I wasn't a watcher of X Files, but I'm told it's sort of X Files Next Generation.  It's about a division of the FBI that investigates weird "events" that involve fringe science (alternate universes, time travel, etc.).  J.J. Abrams created it, so right there you know it's good (except I find his current "Undercovers" to be a dud).  Each episode has something delightfully disgusting in it - like removing someone's brain or people spontaneously combusting...I don't like gory movies, but I love this show.   It doesn't hurt that Pacey is on it (Joshua Jackson...I wasn't a big Dawson's Creek fan, but...he's kinda sexy as a grown up) and the main character, Olivia (Anna Torv) looks like a grown up version of my niece.

She's only 14, but I could totally see her kicking some other-worldly criminal butt someday. 

So there you go, it's on Fox Thursday at 9:00.  DVR it and see what you think.

Oh, almost forgot the answers from yesterday are:
  1. Princess Bride
  2. The Big Lebowski
  3. Shakespeare in Love
  4. Friends
  5. Pirates of the Caribbean
  6. The Hangover
  7. National Lampoon's Animal House (filmed on the U of O campus, thankyouverymuch)
  8. Airplane!
  9. Scrooged (one of my favorite holiday movies)
  10. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original, BEST version)


  1. Ah, Dave. You need to post current pictures of the boys!

  2. SO love your boys. :)
    And I totally calculated my lists just yesterday!!! There is enough to be thankful for for anyone to make the lists. :)
