(minor spoiler for BSG. So minor I don't think it needs a cut.)

I recently rewatched Seasons 1 & 2 of BSG. You know the scene where Laura is preparing for a speech and she gets the giggles beforehand? That's me right now. Except it's not a speech, but just a whole pile of work. It's going FABULOUSLY, but frak I am all giggly right now.

So [livejournal.com profile] mackillian and I had a conversation the other day, and the topic of hoodies came up. I mentioned that I didn't have one, to which there was much O_Oing and "...seriously?"-ing. Shock and horror, in other words. So she begged me to allow her to get me one.

Doorbell just rang, so I ran downstairs and retrieved the package sitting in the snow. Had to smile when I saw it was a ThinkGeek box. 'Cause they have good stuff, yo.

People who know me well will probably understand why my face is splitting from grinning so much at the moment. Because I am now the proud owner of a What the Frak? hoodie.

Thanks, Jamie! <3!

Battlestar Galactica mid-season finale

Thursday, December 14, 2006 at 07:30pm

at a movie theater on the north side of Chicago


*SQUEES!* I am so very excited. I found out about this via SciFi's newsletter, which I got subscribed to when I registered for their forums to pout about the episodes being slow getting over to iTunes. So I guess website newletters DO come in handy now and then! :D I had to "pre-register" for this last week, and then be one of the first people to click on the link when it was emailed. Which I was. :) There's fine print that says that the ticket doesn't guarantee a seat, though--limited to theater capacity, first come first served, yada yada yada. So I'll go there right from work. Don't care if I have to sit in a line for several hours.

Anybody want to come with? It'd be much more fun with someone else there. Plus there'd be someone to hold the line/seats if I have to make a bathroom run. Alas, I can only bring one other person, so we can't make it a group outing.

I'm actually not that fond of movie theaters. Something about the big screen makes it hard for me to focus. But I just couldn't pass this up, if only because it means for once I'll be able to see an episode before everyone else, rather than a day late.

BSG 2.5!

You know what sucks? The lack of new Battlestar Galactica this week.

You know what also sucks? Not knowing when Season 2.5 of the above comes out on DVD. Anybody know?

You know what doesn't suck? Being full of Girl Scout cookies. Mmm...cookies!

I do not have cable, choosing instead to get all my TV via Netflix. This worked well--until I discovered Battlestar Galactica. Yes, I'm finally hooked on a show enough that I can't possibly wait for the DVDs--I need to know what happens NOW!!!

Thankfully, Scifi is putting the episodes on iTunes 24 hours after they air. YAY! I just finished watching the 11th episode of the second season (the season was a split season, so this is the first new ep after the most recent DVD release). The fun thing about watching a time-lagged downloaded version is that I could post my thoughts as I watched it. And so here is the chatlog.

For today is a most glorious day indeed!

Yes! Today is the day that both Serenity and Battlestar Galactica 2.0 come out on DVD.

I have preordered my copies at BestBuy.com, and will be picking them up at the store on the way home. Woohoo! And an extra woohoo, because they're offering a $10 savings when you buy Serenity with either season of BSG. YAY!!!!!

And yes, BSG is going in the DVD player AS SOON AS I GET HOME tonight. Whee!!!

So, thought I'd check my order for BSG 2.0 on Amazon.com to see if it's shipped yet, as it comes out on the 20th.

Amazon.com says it's due to arrive January 3rd - 6th.

UM. NO. I may have patience enough to forgo buying the iTunes version (much to the annoyance of [livejournal.com profile] mackillian), but I am NOT going to wait until JANUARY to see more of my beloved Starbuck.

So yeah, I canceled my order. I will check both Best Buy and Circuit City on the 20th, prebuy it at whichever store has it in stock and is cheaper, and pick it up on the way home so I can begin watching it that night.

FIVE MORE DAYS until I see more BSG!!! *squees*

I brought the BSG soundtrack with me to work to help me focus.

"Passacaglia" is playing. It is so, so beautiful I am tearing up a bit.

Do you think there's any chance they might release sheet music? 'Cause I really want it. Definitely for this track, but for others as well.

I need a BSG icon. My "prettyness!" icon will have to do.
