The census guy just knocked on my door. Since a couple of months ago, the future was uncertain, I never got around to sending my form in. He seemed like a nice dude, so I invited him in to ask his questions. While here, he met the cats, and of course, Mulder, being the aggressively friendly sort that he is, was all over him (in a good way). He recognized the name from The X-Files, and said he loved the show. He asked me if I watched Lost, and wondered if he should watch it on DVD from the beginning. (He'd NEVER SEEN AN EPISODE!). After 10 minutes of evangelizing, I had him convinced he was going to the library to pick up the first season tomorrow.
We also talked about The Wire, Friday Night Lights (which we had both seen) and The Sopranos.
I think I also completely sold him on Battlestar Galactica and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which he hadn't watched before.
I feel like I did a huge service to humanity today.
Too bad he wasn't from the Nielsens. I'm much more interested in having them count me.
