Fringe - Restless Leg Syndrome

Fringe = X-Files + MacGyver

At least that's my take on it. Not saying I'm not enjoying it, that's just how I feel it can be summarized.

We went to the Children's Theater Company production of Madeline and the Gypsies tonight. There was a woman near the rest rooms who was yelling for her child to come back. Alaric, come back. Alaric, right now. Alaric? Who the hell names their child with a name that means "everyone's ruler"? And if that wasn't the intent, but rather that you wanted to name your child after the master dwarven rune smith in the Warhammer Fantasy realm...shame. SHAME!

By the way, a study in contrasts is my little girl sitting in the theater hugging her Peapods stuffed cat, Gus, with her ankle crossed over the knee of her other leg. When the hell did that start?

Pooteewheet thinks I suddenly developed restless legs syndome. I questioned whether it might be related to not enough exercise lately, and lack of activity (improvement with activity) shows up on the list. I like to think of it as I'm trying to bike in my sleep. I told her if she'd just start going to bed before again like she has for the last 15 years, there wouldn't be a problem. I don't like that whole "onset at 40" bit, however. I'm 39.82 or so, thank you very much.

Welcome to the family your brother has restless legg and so does your father. It only affects me if I get over tired or have been inactive like sitting in a car for long periods of time. It seems biking helps as well as walking.

Na na na na boo boo. I'm adopted and you're not! Keeps getting better and better the older we get.

Yup, definitely not 40--take it from a 29.48 year old.
