Q. #AtoZChallenge - The re-opening of The X-Files and Special Blogfest Announcement!!!!


 
My 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge theme is The re-opening of The X-Files. I'm not going to reiterate the known facts about the show, but share with you how it ruled my life for 9 seasons and beyond.




Q = Queequeg




 Due to Scully's family obsession with Moby Dick, she names the dog she adopts Queequeg.
 Yep. The same dog that ate its owner when they croaked in their apartment.
The dog isn't seen much until the episode when it goes on a case with Scully & Mulder and gets eaten by a very large alligator.

When you get bored of listening to her drivel about her favorite TV show, make sure you drop down to the bottom of the posts to see me. I'm sharing funny quotes from the show.

Special Blogfest Announcement



Blood, Boobs, and Carnage Blogfest!
Hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh and Heather M. Gardner. 

Yes, Blood, Boobs, and Carnage!

Alex used that phrase last year to describe an upcoming movie release. It amused many people, including ME. (Okay, mostly me)  So, naturally we decided to make it a blogfest.

What falls into that category? Here’s a few examples – Conan the Barbarian, Breaking Bad, Fast and Furious, The Watchmen, etc.

Here’s the details, short and simple:

On May 18, 2015, post about a movie, television show, book, or all three that falls into the category of Blood, Boobs, and Carnage. (Or just Blood and Carnage or other mixture.) It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc. Post the badge and visit other participants.

  11. Hopped over from Alex's. I never watched much of the X Files, but now... I think I'm going to have to get it through Netflix. Anyone who names their dog Queeque is worth a looksee. Signed up for your blogfest too. Something came immediately to mind...
