Ah what a nice week...

I got my Changing Seasons fic posted last night, only about 24 hours late. :)

Max actually let me sleep until 7:30am this morning. And he didn't even get up at 3am to play last night!

My mom got home from the Dominican Republic on Wednesday where she was visiting my little sister who is in the Peace Corps. She had safe flights both ways and a wonderful time while she was there. She actually stayed with my sister at her site, not in a hotel. We are going to watch the video she took tomorrow.

I have the new Dresden Files book Small Favor and I am taking it slowly as Max won't let me sit and read for hours on end. So I am viewing that as a good way to savor the book. I am so excited because the place where I stopped last night was the first appearance of Murphy in this volume! Whee!

AND

OMG!!! I love Kara Thrace! BSG was fabulous last night. I am so looking forward to this last *sniff* season. Do you realize that the last time there was a new Battlestar Galactica episode was BEFORE Max was born?!?!??? And his birthday is in a little over two weeks!

The bullet through the eyes moment was quintesential Starbuck and it was just perfect. My 17 year-old stepson (who has moved to IL with us about three weeks ago... long story... whole other post needed) had been watching the marathon sporadically through the week(as he has no job and has dropped out of school) on SciFi saw that scene and said "Whoa, that was harsh!" and I just said "That is Starbuck, and that is why we love her!"

The Zak conversation between Apollo and Papadama was awsome as well and I couldn't keep my eyes off of the Admiral's face. Edward James Almos is an amazing actor.

I hate to say it, but I didn't like Anders until he found out that he was a Cylon. Now I am kind of pulling for him, but does anybody else see him as kind of the weakest link????

Did we already know that Six had been "programmed not to think of The Five"? Or is that an upgrade that came with Vista??

When is Chief going to make the realization that his son is a rather special baby?

Does anybody think that the ending may be a Hera and Nicky start a new species as a new "Adam and Eve" kind of thing? Or is that just too far out there?

Okay thanks to anyone who actually read through all my rambling squeeage.

I will try to follow up with more often, I know that I have been slacking. There has been a lot going on here in RL. I haven't even posted pictures of Max in his Easter finery, I am such a bad mommy.

I really enjoyed writing that Changing Season's fic. I might (and this is still way in the maybe column) ask for some prompts to help me get to writing a little more as long as things continue to settle down here :)


Ohhh I really need a Starbuck icon... I might go raid jandjsalmon's user pics..... ;)

Glad mom had a good time and a safe trip. Hug her for me!

Can I both prompt and beta? I think that would be a first for me...

Good to hear that you are at least getting some sleep. we would love to hear more from you, when time allows (like what happened with Adam.....). Good that your mum had a safe trip to and fro.

*hugs*

Yeah I need to make a big long entry. It might take a nice chunk of uninterrupted time for me to get it all down.

I am sorry you had a bad birthday. I hope things are looking up with the prospect of your move.

*big hugs back*

*hugs you* Have at 'er. If you need any direction by way of BSG icons feel free to ask. ;)

ALSO - LOVED the Bullet Through the eyes comment - and the zak convo and yeah - BABY! I never thought about that. Chief needs to clue in soon, eh?

And I wanna see baby in Easter finery so lets hope RL calms down a bit! :D

I love Kara Thrace too. That line was SO her and I fell in love with her all over again.

Lee and Adama - that conversation broke me. Oh, as did Tigh's hallucination about pulling a Boomer.

Yeah, seems like he is at the minute. He's all jumpy and twitchy. *pets him*

Oh! for Starbuck icons, I'm going to be playing her in a role play and so I have over 100 icons, here:
