Swimsuit frustrations.

I've been feeling both antsy and lethargic all day, which is usually a sign of PMS. Lovely. This afternoon I went to Target to get a swimsuit, but the only one I liked (and could afford) didn't come in my size. I even considered going by Wal-Mart to check a few that I saw on the website, but the lethargy struck. I'm a cheapskate and don't want to spend more than $30 or so for a swimsuit that I'll only wear a handful of times per year, but options are very limited when you're a plus-sized woman who needs one before Monday. I do have one of those "tankinis", but the bottoms sag in the back, and the top rides up when I move, exposing my ample belly. Lovely. I suppose it'll do, but I'll look around a bit more this weekend. Fortunately, I'm not so self-conscious that it'll keep me from hitting the pool next week!

Anyway! Day 10: A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving. I suppose I'll go with BSG. I've never been into true science fiction -- a tiny bit of prejudice, maybe, but mostly because it's just not all that interesting to me. Watching it never would've crossed my mind if not for how quite a few people on my flist started raving about it early in S1. I was bored one Friday night, so I turned it on. As fate would have it, the episode happened to be "Act of Contrition". Quite unexpectedly, I fell in love with Kara Thrace and the show itself. :)

Dear BSG,

I haven't actually watched the Galactica finale since it aired, though I've been slowly working through the S4 eps on my TiVo so that I can delete them. I still have quite a few issues with the finale, even if I enjoyed it a bit more than most of the folks I know. So, I decided to work through a few of those problems by writing open letters. Quite cathartic! Feel free to join in if you're interested.

BSG 4.20 - "Daybreak II"

Is anyone still in the mood to read meta? :) While I'm still not as (understandably) frustrated as many of my friends, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. So, as always, I've tried to sort out my thoughts by writing ridiculously long meta -- this one clocks in at almost 6,000 words. Yikes!

BSG 4.17 - "Someone to Watch over Me" - redux

Whew. I've typed up a few thoughts on "Someone to Watch over Me", though I didn't quite get as much down as I'd wanted; meta seems much harder these days, or else I'm just lazy! And as I said last night, I'm still *loving* the season and having a hard time with all the negativity (even if I'll admit that it's quite warranted), so I'd really appreciate keeping things somewhat positive. Thanks!

BSG 4.17 - "Someone to Watch over Me"

Going spoiler-free is hard! In the past, I've read everything, including those scene-by-scene descriptions courtesy of critics' screeners. I am definitely NOT anti-spoiler (and I get a bit annoyed by the hardcore "spoilers are evil, and how dare you read them!" attitude I've seen before.) I have fun with all the spec and finding out each new tidbit. But this is the final season of BSG and, as with my brief foray into vegetarianism years ago, I thought I'd try the spoiler-free lifestyle and see if I could do it. So far, I'm a nice winter-white -- the only thing I really knew was the casting sides from tonight's ep -- but I suffer from a profound lack of willpower. I might cave soon. Until then, this post is spoiler-free!
