Finally made it to DC, safe and sound, and with everybody in one piece. Had a few close calls, though, what with Mulder pitching a fit when we had to leave Graceland, and the kids attempting mutiny because they only got to spend a single day at Dollywood, but... now we're home. The place looks great, by the way. Tony, remind me to send your contractor friend a bottle of champagne and a fruit basket, would you?

Oh, and I got to meet my biggest and best birthday present today, and wow, is she adorable. Pretty sure she likes me too, since I only got spit on once.

Also, I took one of Fraser's memes, and I'm Schindler's List. No surprise there.

Not that I don't already have enough weird shit on my plate at the moment, but...

Tony, care to enlighten me as to what's going on? I think your boyfriend is broken.
 
 
 
 
 
 


Fox, did Ari chuck your cell phone out the window again? Jack and I both have been trying to get in touch with you this morning, in regards to a... situation going on back in CO. Let me know when you read this, okay?

 
 
 
 
 
 


Viral quarantine is over, and as predicted, it was a complete and total disaster. One of the power-mad virologists in charge of the experiment sabotaged the whole thing and tried to kill Fox. See, this is just one example why real scientists (with the possible exclusion of Sam) can't be trusted. No offense, Rodney.

So, after successfully fighting off HIV and the Ebola virus, Fox is recuperating nicely. And I'm currently trying to persuade the SFs to go take a coffee break, and let me have some alone time with Dr. CrazyPants in his holding cell.

On the bright side, I think we've all learned a valuable lesson from this latest catastrophe. That lesson would be that I am always always right, of course.

 
 
 
 
 
 


...this isn't Monday, is it? Because I think I'm having a Monday.

Quick, somebody ask me a really personal and invasive question that you know I'll try to lie about. I'll explain later. Maybe.

 
 
 
 
 
 


Mission briefing at 1300 hours. So excited.

In the meantime...

Here's a memeCollapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 


...sorry, guys.

What is Your Egyptian Zodiac Sign?
Designed by CyberWarlock of Warlock's Quizzles and Quandaries




See, I already knew my 'Egyptian Zodiac' sign, which is why I didn't want to post it. But hey, my bar tab's $965, so that makes up for a lot.

The fine printCollapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 


Yes, you read that correctly. What else are two bored, consenting adults with an HD camcorder and too much time on their hands expected to do?

I know, I know. What gives me the right to pop up out of nowhere and brag about my incredible sex life, after being in absentia for a year and a day?

Nothing, that's what. But I'm doing it anyway.

...hi. I've missed you guys.

 
 
 
 
 
 


Well. I missed Christmas around here, but I'm early for New Year's, I guess. Let's hear some resolutions, people.

 
 
 
 
 
 


I'm only taking these memes to prove a point, I'm just not sure what that point may BE.Collapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 


I've never really thought of Colorado Springs as a big city before, but after this past week, I may have to change my opinion on that matter. Every day the news media glorifies in reporting that employment and crime rates are at record highs. Bankruptcy and homelessness are rampant, and I don't believe any of those statistics are mutually exclusive. Traffic, pollution, domestic violence... you name it, the 'Springs has it in abundance. More so than a city this size should have. I spent a healthy portion of my college years in Los Angeles, and subsequently Chicago, and to tell you the truth, none of this is anything I ever thought I'd see around here. And just last night, one of Ari's classmates was found dead beneath her bedroom window, half-buried in newly fallen snow. A five year-old. The authorities claim they don't have any reason to suspect foul play, but I guess that along with the fact that Maine just shot down a bill that would have allowed same-sex marriage, you could say it's the final straw, and we're just the proverbial pack of paraplegic dromedaries.

So... we're headed to Greece for a while, for some much-needed R&R. You know how to find us if you need to. Hope things are looking better for the rest of you, wherever you are.

 
 
 
 
 
 


I wish I had more to say about recent events around here, but I'm tired, stressed, and extremely worried at the moment. Therefore, don't expect me to exposit too much this time around. Although... I probably wouldn't mind it if someone started up a mindless meme or two at some point. I figure we could all benefit from the distraction. And Abby... before I forget, I'd just like to thank you for your kind words. They made me smile when I read them, and smiles are something that have been far too few as of late.

Tony, I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your director. I'm afraid I don't have any idea how close the two of you may have been, but I am aware of the fact (and have been for a long, long time) that you view your co-workers as family, and this sudden 'change of circumstances' can't be easy on any of you. If you need to (or are able to, I should say) talk, I'm around. Either way, it would be nice to hear from you, if you get the chance.

Having said that, and at a loss for the means or inclination to properly convey details, the only personal update I'm going to give is that Mulder has taken a turn for the worse over the weekend, and I don't know how available I might be until this mess gets sorted out. Or if it even can be. Not my usual optimistic outlook, I know, but pragmatism offers its own rewards. I suppose.

 
 
 
 
 
 


Happy birthday, Jack!

I know I said this last year (and the year before that, and the year before that, and so on...), but you are really really old.

Hope you make the most of it (while you still can).

 
 
 
 
 
 


[Private Entry]

Okay, so... wherein Daniel follows instructions, and takes a minute out of his busy schedule to be uncharacteristically emoCollapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 


Um. I'm just here to second everything Will already said today, because I was passed out on the sofa, and he got to it first. Baking is horribly exhausting.

And so that no one will mistakenly assume I'm celebrating while various catastrophes are afoot, please refrain from clicking any LJ cut that does not have your name on it, until the aforementioned catastrophe(s) have safely passed. Thank you.

For Fox:Collapse )


For Tony:Collapse )

 
 
 
 
 
 

Heading home to Colorado tomorrow, at long last. Assuming any of this is actually real, I'd just like to say thanks to everyone who helped or offered to help in the search. Abby, Rodney, Tony, Gibbs, Sam & Dean, Benton & Ray, and... especially Fox.

It's good to be back, I think.

 
 
 
 
 
 


Looks like your friendly neighborhood archaeologist has caught the travel bug again. I'll be in DC this Friday-Sunday, if anyone's interested in hanging out. Feel like grabbing a drink or two, Tony? Work permitting, of course. And by that I mean your work, because I won't be in town for business, this time. At least not technically. We could make it a group activity if you like. You can even drag Gibbs and the rest of 'your team' along, as I have yet to meet the infamous Abby Sciuto in person...

 
 
 
 
 
 


Hi. I played baseball last night, for the first-- well, technically the second time ever, and I didn't suck at it too badly. It was fun, actually. Will's all signed up for Little League again (the autumn session), work is pretty tame (aside from some hilarious technical difficulties that an unnamed, distant outpost seems to be suffering), and life is good. Just thought I'd share.
