“I Know It's Done For Me If You Steal My Sunshine” (“In Your Head” Recap)

Well, here I am - nasty head cold and all I'm still getting this recap out on time.  Too bad that's the good news.

For a few minutes before tonight's episode aired, I had the tiniest of hopes that things would go alright for Alex.

“And There's A Little Green Man In My Head”

And he's making my life miserable. Yep, I've got another head cold, so this one's going to be short. So what's “In Your Head”?

“I Never Can Say Goodbye” (“Dear Beloved Family” Recap)

At the first commercial break, I fired off this tweet (sorry – I'm going to make you jump past “Read more” this time to see it):

“Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News”

First things first, I will be watching tonight's “Dear Beloved Family” on time after all. I wound up canceling that foot procedure appointment for this past Monday (that storm that hit us would have made getting around in a walking boot too much of an adventure, so I'm going to wait until spring to do it). And my store manager was nice enough to let me switch work days (I wanted it not just because of tonight – now I don't have to work four nights straight this week) so I have today off and will be home at 9:00.

So, as for tonight's 200th episode, is there any reason to get excited?

“One Step Forward, Two Steps Back” (“He Said, She Shed” Recap)

So I was off by one – Alex actually appeared twice tonight. Not that much came of it as expected (other than indignation at the term "she shed" and a few other choice snipes), but there were still a couple of talking points.

“And I Go Back To December All The Time”

Well, that's what it felt like yesterday at my store: with a suddenly blossoming storm on the horizon, everyone decided to buy their last minute whatevers and descended upon us, making it look like Christmas was still just around the corner and not in the rear-view mirror.

Thankfully that storm won't be here until tomorrow morning so I should be able to watch tonight's “He Said, She Shed” without interruption (although there may be a “no school” list crawling at the bottom for distraction). But just how thankful should I be?

"To Study Or To Play" (First Impressions - "In Your Head" - Season 9, Episode 13)

One final post to ring out 2017 - actually I'm surprised I'm doing one right now, since I didn't think there would be a new episode on January 17th, but, here it is.

And, believe it or not, there's a story happening at CalTech during one of Alex's classes.
