The Career I Wish I Had Chosen

So those of you who read this blog regularly know that I took a new job with a lot of travel. Which sounds like great reading time, but let's face it, one can only read a book for so many hours while jolting around through space. So I swiped my husband's portable dvd player and have started watching movies on the plane. My selection for my travel viewing pleasure - The X Files, starting with Season 1.

I watched X Files when it was on tv but faded away after DD left. It just wasn't the same. So I decided now that everything is over, I needed to finish what I started. But since there's that whole alien conspiracy thread that ran through every season, I decided I needed to go back and watch from the beginning so that I could get everything straight in my mind. So Season 1 it is.

And that's when I decided that if I had it to do all over again - that's the job I would want. I'd major in biology or physics or some of applicable science, join the FBI and investigate paranormal activity. Would that be cool or what?

Of course, I am allowing for the fact that I could have quite possibly gone out on my first case, created quite a messy dry-cleaning tab and retired in less than 24 hours. But you never know. Heck, I've done all manner of extreme sports. Would chasing an alien spacecraft wearing a business suit and dress shoes really be that out of the question?

I wouldn't mind a job like that if I could meet somebody cute like Krycek. Sure he was their nemesis for several seasons, but he wasn't ALL bad. *g*

I never took even a small liking to Krycek. Give me Fox Mulder any day. Yummy.

I think I'd rather be Buffy. I know that's not as "normal" of a job as alien investigator, but I'm not a big sci-fi person. Plus I'd get to make out with Angel, Spike and that hot guy who was part of the secret task force.
