My sign language acquisition is kind of sad- most of what I know either relates directly to babies, and the other things I know are various alcohols and bad words- BUT I recently learned the sign for fabulous/awesome, and just today I learned the sign for 'robots,' which means I can now sign "Fabulous Robots," which is basically how I intend to sign every time I talk about Cylons from now on.

So, my mom knows... next to nothing about BSG. That's kind of a lie. She knows a lot of random bits and pieces of BSG that I don't think she should know (like Kara Thrace's actions in Unfinished Business, which she can recount in detail many months later, the fact that Caprica and Tigh had a thing HOW DID SHE REMEMBER THAT?!) and then totally can't remember things that I think she should know (more important details than that, like the fact that Cylons download.)

We just had this conversation that made me legit LOL like five times.

In which I explain how a lack of ~*~love~*~ killed Liam, how Ellen is Caprica's Cylon Mom, and wind up talking about Cylon incest. It's awesome. )

So, I'm watching Lay Down Your Burdens Pt 1, and Kara is leading a mission back to Caprica to go get her man Samders, and they're talking about how it's going to be like, a jillion jumps and they're probably going to die or whatever, but there's something new and cool that will make their lives easier, and that is! INSTALLING CYLON TECHNOLOGY ONTO THEIR RAPTORS, ENABLING THEM TO MAKE BIGGER JUMPS OR SOME SHIT SO THEY CAN GET BACK TO CAPRICA FASTER.

Wait wait wait. What's that you say? Installing Cylon technology? That thing everyone freaks out about in season four? They were doing it in season two? And everyone, including Mr Cylon Hater himself, Señor Felix Gaeta, accepted it? WHY YES. IN FACT, HE IS ACTUALLY THE ONE INFORMING EVERYONE OF THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE READY ROOM. And everyone deals with it just fine! Goddamn. Like, if they showed even just Gaeta making faces, I'd be better with it, but nooo.

I know this show isn't super great at consistency- and really, what show is?- but come on, guys! You act like adding Cylon FTLs is some fresh hell for the fleet to get their panties in a bunch about, but no! They already implemented Cylon technology without everyone dying gruesome deaths or anything.

Cue anger and rage at fleet and the mutineers, as per usual.

So fandom secrets did this thing today where they only posted nice, happy secrets, and I honestly felt like so many of the secrets could've been written by me (or by my subconscious when I was like, sleepwalking.) I very rarely read f!s and think, "oh! so me" so to have it happen a bunch of times in one day was delightful.

On a less upbeat note, I had a dream last night that I was a Cylon. "But Madi," you say, "You love Cylons! How could that be a bad thing?" I will tell you: in the dream, I was with my babies from work, and I was walking outside with some of them, and these two guys muttered as I walked by that I shouldn't be allowed to be with the kids because I was a robot.

And I was so appalled, because I love my babies, there was no reason for me not to be allowed around them, but for some reason these strange guys were around the whole afternoon, muttering that I was a toaster and kids weren't safe around me. And it was so heartbreaking to hear, because I couldn't help it, dammit, and I was so not a danger to anyone, let alone my babies. (Also, I was a Six- Shelly Godfrey, to be precise.) At the end of the dream, parents were picking their kids up, and none of them said anything, so I don't know. It was just very sad to be discriminated against, and to have racial epithets used in my presence. :(

In final, awesome news, ON SUNDAY I CAN CURSE AGAIN. And also, Jesus will have returned from the dead and brought us Cadbury eggs. Hooray for Easter!

So, I've decided that I want to talk about the finale, and by "talk about the finale and its one year anniversary," I mean, "I want to talk about where our little chickadees are one year later." So!



The future is ours! )

What do you all think is going on in the little settlements around the world of Colonials and Cylons?

Mom: How did I know [Boomer] was an eight?
Me: Because she a Cylon.
Mom: [happily] I like the Sevens.
Me: Um. how?
Mom: [like, 'duh'] Um, she's Tricia Helfer.

Which lead to the singular joy of explaining to my mom about the miscount, and the final five and whatever (her reaction was: YOU HAD A PICTURE TAKEN WITH A CYLON?! ... ... ... Oh wait, you also had pictures taken with Tigh and Mrs Tigh) and about the Caprica/Tigh/Liam debacle (which had my mom all indignant that Caprica had a baby not with Gaius, and all concerned about Tigh, who was married to "the beautiful lady!"

Who is a big old nerd?



I am!

I was like, I want to paint my jacket! I want to show my devotion to television! I know: I'll paint the Eye of Jupiter! And it can be like a litmus test for fellow nerds- if they recognize it, they watch too! If they can't identify it, well, it's not incriminating on it's own!

Stealth geekage: it's all I ask for in life.

Me: also, i amuse myself way too much
Me: i just pictured BSG being made like... thirty years from now, and instead of using "all along the watchtower" they use something by Lady Gaga
Me: like Bad Romance
Tess: LOL!
Me: can you imagine everyone saying lines from that song as they can't get it out of their head and are constantly humming?
Tess: LOl
Tess: I was thinking of Poker Face :-P
Me: LOL!!!
Tess: they'd all be like, po-po-po-po-po
Me: ooh, or, love game
Tess: LOL
Me: because tigh saying "disco stick" would be amazing
Tess: LOL!
Me: and tory could say she got her ass squeezed by a sexy cupid
Me: but i won't lie, i prefer the idea of bad romance. Ra ra, ah ah ah, roma romama, gaga ooh la la
Tess: LOL

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

So, the way I felt as this day of this meme approached is best explained in a quote from Jessie Spano: "I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so... so... scaaaaared." Because it meant I had to choose my TV show, and that would've always been an easy answer before, but NOW IT IS NOT. So I've been thinking about this since before I even started the meme and now... now I'm ready.

You think I'm kidding, but it was an effing battle royale in my heart about this. )

So that's embarrassingly long winded.
