Stormy the Weather Gnome meets Death & The Re-opening of The X-Files News

Stormy the Weather Gnome ... Grimm.

Aren't they adorable together? Although, Stormy is looking a little pale. Hmmmmm.

The Re-opening of The X-Files News


I don't have a whole lot of new news to share. Just that I have finally caught up and surpassed the #‎TheXFiles201Days‬ re-watch.
 

I just watched Season 4, Episode 9 because I know I won't be home much this weekend.
The re-watch is on Season 4, Episode 7, Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man.




It's a good episode all about Cancer Man and how is is like the Forrest Gump of the not-so-secret government agency that controls all the world's important events.

The best part is his park bench soliloquy.


"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap thoughtless perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So, you’re stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there’s nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there’s a peanut butter cup or an English toffee, but they’re gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. If you’re desperate enough to eat those all you’ve got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers." Raul Bloodworth


The name Raul Bloodworth is Cancer Man's nom de plume. He fancied himself a writer, but spent a lot of time putting rejection letters in his desk drawer.
 

Sound familiar?

    Stormy does look pale. I'd keep an eye on him.

  2. Stormy and Grimm are so cute together. Maybe Stormy needs a little color in his cheeks, though! Good luck to the boy and have a great weekend. :)

  8. I'd be pale too if death was standing next to me! And I loved that soliloquy, cracks me up. The X-Files is one of those shows I can easily watch all over again - and have.

  9. So all we writers have to look forward to is to become the cigarette smoking man? Bummer. Best of luck to the boy this weekend.

  11. That little Death is so cute! Wherever did you find him?

    I'm eager to find out what the new X-Files will be like. I hope the series will retain its magic.
