[Error: unknown template qotd]Sweet asses of Kobol, do you guys really not know?!?!


Why do I freaking love her like woah? She is EPIC. She was a former science teacher, now she's a freaking rock star of a best friend. She gave me an autographed photo of Mary McDonnell (and really, I think Mary could totally play her in some movie of my life. :P

Anyways, she likes BSG. That officially makes her one of the best people in my life, because she's someone who understands my insanity. She makes science fun and awesome and she references Cylons a lot (especially since she has 26 of them and one of them is named Liam (after her son, of course, but skipping that idea and the fact that he's the captain of an airline). How awesome is that? And she airlocks students (by making them go outside). And wears reading glasses and white crossover blouses and Wigs of Sad (because she had breast cancer).

And besides, her hubby read LotR and once served in the military and his name is Bill. That is awesomesauce right there because hers is a dimunitive of Laura. They met on a frakking plane.

Besides all of the awesome BSG references, she's a great friend and you can always trust her to keep secrets and cheer you up.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Being the shallow teenager that I am, I'm quite unhappy with my body right now. But still, there are some things that I like and I hope they stay that way. :]

I love my fingers. Not really how they look, but how flexible they can be. Piano's to blame, of course, but I suppose someone will find out one day that I'm very good with my hands. (that's what she said!)

I love my calves. I think they're quite shapely. I bet if I woke up in the Colonial period tomorrow all the guys will kill for my calves. After all, back then padded stockings were very popular for a reason.

I love my eyes. They're a very dark brown and you can only see the brown if you stare for a looooong time.

I love my lips. They're very full and sometimes I wish they were a little thinner. But then I see all of those other girls trying to get bee-stung lips and I can't help but laugh.

I love my figure. I'm rather pleased that I don't grow sideways (yet), so there's no spoiling it. It's kinda pear, kinda hourglass. More hourglass than pear, though. Right now I'm still a little on the plump side, but as Mrs. F puts it, I've got "quite a body" and maybe someday "those boys at school will be lining up" for me.

(why yes, she does flatter me a lot.)

[Error: unknown template qotd]Watch Battlestar Galactica. Get Mrs. F into it before Halloween so you two can dress up as Laura and Billy.

Tell Mrs. F you love her. Because you do.

Don't be ashamed of being different.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Like a Rorschach blot. Duh. But in all seriousness, it looks like a mask. With four eye holes.

[Error: unknown template qotd]There was this one time when the power went out right when I was typing up a report for school. So the computer turned off and the lights turned off and I was all like "WTF?!?!?!"

And then I went up and down the streets and it turns out that the entire neighborhood was out of power. We lit a bunch of candles and I had to do my other assignments by candlelight. Worst. Light. Source. Ever. How the hell did people do their homework back then with these things?

I did make a friend that day, and we did get our power back eventually. Like, two hours later. :P Turns out some little old lady accidentally drove her car into one of the poles or something.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Do you really have to ask? Roslin/Adama all the way!

[Error: unknown template qotd]OOOOH. Um. Bear McCreary, Secret Garden, John Barry, Vienna Teng...

I use a variety of music styles - it really depends on what I'm doing. :]

[Error: unknown template qotd]Puleeze. Laura Roslin.

Or Hermione Granger and Rowena Ravenclaw. Bookworms unite! ;]

[Error: unknown template qotd]Let's see... every single captions thread in [ profile] rememberlaura ...

and THIS thread. It is epic. Complete with make-up emails, according to [ profile] icedteainthebag . ;]

[Error: unknown template qotd]Battlestar Galactica (2003), hands down. It's a space show, and yet more often than not it's also a human show. It lets you see the colorful sides of human nature when less than 50,000 people are crammed into a few ships after the apocalypse comes. There aren't any aliens and stuff (because the Cylons are just as human as the humans are), which makes fanfic a lot easier because then you don't have to look up the customs for that race of aliens (one of the reasons why it's so hard to write LotR fanfic...bloody Elves and Dwarves and their bloody customs...). Because BSG's characters are so complex and play out so nicely, you can see them in some fanfic situations. Maybe that's why writing BSG fanfic has been...well, simpler than other fandoms, maybe. And besides, the fandom in itself is frakking awesome. We've got great iconmakers, great fanartists, great vidders, great fanmixers, great fanwriters, and beyond fan-frakking-tastic fans. I'm glad I discovered this fandom and I think we're one of the greatest out there, so say we all.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Haha. Some of my friends don't know that I like BSG right now.

And others are surprised at just how much love making fun of Harry Potter these days. They're surprised that I still ship Harry/Hermione and Draco/Ginny.

And I suppose I might as well admit that I hate Muse and Imogen Heap (but they're not pop, I think). And Miley Cyrus. Her voice is too flat.

As for the Twilight conundrum... I'm very Switzerland on it. There are parts I think are cute and other parts I'd gladly burn out of the book. Ditto for the movie. Maybe even the main (male) characters. Bella's a Sue, Alice is quirky, Emmett's okay, Rosalie's... okay, Jasper's interesting, Esme's my kind of mom, and Carlisle is frakking awesome and he looks pretty damn hot in the movie...

But the main male characters are... well... they have their good points and bad. Ed's corny and kinda creepy and definitely a Gary Stu. Jake's a little bigoted at times (until Renesmee the Speshul comes along). But Ed's rich and can bribe his way into anything (what wouldn't I give for a Harvard spot...;]) and Jake's funny.

I suppose I'm Team Carlisle. There's another thing people don't know about me.
