Is It Friday Yet?  - bulletproofbabe

(no subject)

I'll begin by posting what you've come to expect from me...Galactica news!

In case you haven't already heard, apparently the season finale will be ninety minutes. However, given that I've seen it referred to as a 'BSG special' I wonder if it's an hour ep plus a recap of what's come before? Or after having to trim so much from 'Pegasus', Ron was able to convince the network to give him more time? We shall see.

Up at the Sci-Fi website is a promo that differs from the one that aired after the ep last week. This one focuses more on Kara and shows that this should be a more action oriented episode. After several weeks of character introspection, this may be a good thing.

I watched Invasion last night. Worst...episode...yet. Last week, I actually enjoyed how the show was using the alien hybridization as a metaphor for teenage angst. Kira's desire to be special, unique, yet, at the same time, wanting to be just like everyone else was intriguing. This week they follow up with something I try to avoid in the theaters - psycho teens on killing sprees! And anyone want to bet Kira hasn't been changed at all? That the alien spit her back up onto the beach for some reason?

The B storyline with Russell and Marielle doing the do it yourself medical testing wasn't any better. And yet another sci-fi show that turns to ovaries as a plot device. If the deputy can grow an arm back, why can't the men grow some other extra appendages? Where's the super sperm?

Speaking of babies, what the hell is Larkin carrying? Two weeks ago, she had a flat stomach. Last week, she looked a little bloated. This week, she looks like she has a pillow stuffed up her dress. And I had read at the start of the show that the entire first season took place over the course of about a month. Ack.

At work, my whining skills finally paid off. :) I've been after one of those hand-held, upright staplers for awhile, but with no success. Yesterday, the person I've been after to get me one was in accounting and noticed how I stapled with the old fashion kind. He tells me I should get a hand held model. :/ I point out that I've made numerous requests to him for one. "No, you haven't." "Yes, I have." "No, you haven't." Let's just say that went on for awhile. I also mentioned one in blue would be nice. So, what did I get this morning? :) Yes, I have a spiffy new stapler! Which I was very excited about. I feel just like the guy in Office Space. ;-)

Yay for the stapler! It's true, whining can be a handy skill to have and improves with practice. :-)
Now I just need to whine my way towards a computer with a DVD drive. ;-)
Remember I'm weeks behind you on BSG. I have one spoilery question.

You know the guy on Caprica that Kara sleeps with and falls for and has to leave?

Do we see him again in the eps you've seen so far?

I heart him.
I heart him.

Really? I have to say you are in the minority on that one. Then again, you like 'As You Were'. ;)

Other than some quick shots of Anders in the 'previouslies' and in a recent flashback, no, he has not reappeared.
Yay for the stapler! Ah, the days of whining for new office supplies ;) I had to whine for an electric stapler for stapling thick documents for two years before I finally got one. Simple pleasures are the best.
I now have contraband post it's and a stapler. I shall go mad with power! MUWAHAHAHAH!!!
And anyone want to bet Kira hasn't been changed at all? That the alien spit her back up onto the beach for some reason? And do you remember that the aliens did the same thing with her stepbrother. All he had was a big booboo and I'm betting she's got the same thing.
So dull last night. Zzzzzzz
Maybe they have some gene that makes them not tasty? :p

You're right about the zzzzzzz's, I struggled to stay awake until the end.
Holy Frak, Batman, that promo sure was different that the crap they aired last week! Looks a hell of a lot more interesting to me!

And sorry I've been so silent lately--been down with the migraines. Bleh.
Don't worry about being quiet. My mom is a migraine sufferer and I know one of the last things she would want to do is stare at a computer monitor. And I know how long they can last. Hope you're feeling better. :)
